Thick Cut Crispy Cumin Sweet Potato Fries

Tonight I was stumped on what to make. Thank goodness I bought a huge bag of sweet potatoes the other day to help me with deciding what to make.  I kind of threw this recipe together (per usual) and it turned out really damn good (if I don’t say so myself). I ate these on the side of cilantro-lime-quinoa with…

Sesame Sirache Ginger Zoodles

My love for zoodles has grown. Zucchini noodles are a great way to get more vegetables into your daily diet, and are extremely low in calories if you are trying to lose weight. Zoodles are relatively easy to make (you just have to buy a spiralizer) and are fun if you have kids. You can even try…

Home Made Tomato-Veggie Sauce

I love making my own sauces. It’s really quite easy…you could even do this over a campfire. By making your own sauces you can control everything that goes into it!

Orange October

In honor of Orange October, the San Francisco Giants being in the World Series, it being fall, and my love of pumpkin…I present you with kabocha squash-aka Japanese pumpkin. This squash has the texture of butternut squash (they’re pretty much sisters) and tastes like a pumpkin cross bred with a sweet potato. Here is a whole kabocha….
