Best Ever Black Bean Soup

October 18, 2019

This week I am happy to share a recipe from an Austin friend and outstanding vegan chef, Anna Fry.

Black Bean and Butternut Squash Stew

October 11, 2019

Is it simmering stew season yet? Just to be clear, that means a veggie-full stew, and this one totally fits the bill. Not only is it packed with fall harvest vegetables, the spice combination is divine.  I brought this along to a house concert potluck, and I had to think twice if I really wanted…

And I was pleasantly surprised to find this couple lives in Berlin. So, let’s talk about these adorable bundles of goodness I can’t wait to share with you. I have to admit, one look at the picture and I made a dash to Wheatsville to pick up rainbow chard — how could I resist?…

May 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

I am super fortunate to live with two open-minded eaters. They not only put up with my kitchen experiments, they fully participate with suggestions and ideas (sometimes a few more than I am prepared for!). So, when my husband holds up a gorgeous, salt-crusted potato on his fork and declares it perfect, I take him seriously. Allow me to share this delightfully simple, “perfect” potato dish (by the way, there was not one morsel left at the end of the…
