Baked Blueberry Sourdough French Toast

I find breakfast meals are the hardest for me to meal-prep because I seem to run out of unique ideas. There’s only so much cereal or oatmeal I can take. Once warmer weather hits I love breakfast smoothies or mashed avocado toast, but until then I’m on the recipe prowl. I decided to make bakedshow me more

Mashed Avocado Toast

Lately the majority of my breakfasts have been this cranberry-oat amazingness that I whip up once a week in my slow cooker, or this new high fiber, high protein cereal from Attune. But every so often I crave something savory and have been getting my fill of healthy fats from avocados. I originally didn’t thinkshow me more

“Egg Nog” French Toast

For a post I’m writing over on the Food Network’s Healthy Eats blog, I need to compare some of the festive non-dairy holiday beverages that are out there, like Rice Nog, Soy Chocolate Mint Drink, and Coconut Nog. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. Usually I stick with water for myshow me more

Panzanella Salad

Right after I graduated college, as I was preparing for my RD exam and trying to get a “real job,” I worked as a hostess at a new Northern Italian-style restaurant near my home. It was there that I tried for the first time Panzanella Salad, or bread salad. Who knew soggy bread could tasteshow me more

Vegan Cornbread

Over the weekend I was holed up in bed with a miserable head cold. The Nyquil-dependent kind of head cold that leaves me craving carbs in a serious way: toast, noodles, candy, and nothing more. Come Sunday night, I wanted something a little fancier than toast with jam, so I googled “vegan cornbread” and happilyshow me more

Tomato Jalapeno Scones

Recently I’ve had tomatoes on the brain. I’ve been craving things like tomato soup and veggie lasagna (with loads of chunky tomatoes) now that it’s so cold out, and I’ve officially stopped buying fresh tomatoes at the grocery store until they’re back in season. There’s nothing worse than mealy, dry, colorless “fresh” tomatoes in theshow me more

Homemade (vegan) Bread

          I did it! I fi-na-lly successfully made bread in my bread machine! Funk’s grandma gave me her old bread machine a few years ago, and after two failed attempts at bread, I put it away in the basement. I wanted to give it another try this weekend, since everyone saysshow me more

Post Punk Kitchen Inspired Tomato Basil Scones

Over the weekend my parents hosted a New Year’s brunch with the usual spread of bagels, lox, fruit salad, sweets, and kugel. Wanting to add something to the meal, I flipped through my copy of Vegan Brunch, which is full of so many mouth-watering recipes (and photos to go with them) of all vegan brunchshow me more

Easy Last Minute Appetizer

Tis the season for holiday parties and finger foods galore. I loooove me some party food – specifically chips and salsa! But I can’t always guarantee there will be something at a party that isn’t slathered in cheese or butter, so I always make a point to bring something that I know will satisfy me andshow me more

Vegan French Toast Topped with Apples

This past weekend Funk went grocery shopping before I had time to brainstorm dinner ideas and jot some foods down on our shopping list. I hate going into the week unprepared food-wise, but this is a short week for food since we’re heading away for our friends Katherine and Craig’s wedding! So when Sunday nightshow me more
