A Farmer’s Caesar Salad

Salads are my favorite go-to lunch and appetizer. I am constantly thinking of new ways to revamp salads to make them less boring. Growing up salads were not meals and usually consisted of iceberg lettuce, tomato and cucumber with Italian, French or Thousand Island dressing. Today, none of those dressings ever rest in my refrigerator…

Garden Romaine Caesar Dressing (Vegan)

When I was younger, I didn’t like Caesar dressing. But as I always say, try it first! If you think you don’t like something that you tried in your past, try it again! I just started enjoying Caesar dressing again until [dramatic pause] I found out what was really in it and changed my eating…

Smoky Chick Kale Salad with Miso Dressing

Chick peas and kale are an excellent sources of protein. This is a hardy, filling salad breaks barriers that claim salads are boring. Although the salad dressing is easy to make, most people don’t have these ingredients in the kitchen. So, if you want to use your own salad dressing, go for it!  Miso Dressing…

Artichoke Arugula Salad with Sundried Tomato Dressing

This is probably the best salad I made so far- flavorwise. I wish I could say it just the dressing but combined with the salad ingredients, it’s so delicious. It’s the perfect summer salad and can be paired with anything. I’ve made this for several people and everyone loved it. It’s chopped goodness that is…

Give me a Beet… Salad!

I only had beets once in my life- that I can remember- before I became a vegetarian. From what I recall, I didn’t like them! As I continued to do more and more research about what foods to eat, beets seemed to keep popping up. Beets are known to have Potassium, magnesium, fiber, iron, vitamins…

Pizza-Time Salad Dressing/Sauce

I can’t express how much I love pizza! It is hands down my favorite food and I don’t know why. I love it so much, I had to make a salad dressing that tasted like it! I hope you enjoy it too. This can also be used in place of marinara sauce when making pizza!…

Warm Zucchini Spring Mix & Cucumber-Mint Salad

I eat a lot of salad! I am constantly thinking of new ways to enjoy a salad so that I don’t get sick of it (if that is even possible for me). Generally, I eat 2 salads a day. Before lunch and before dinner. Sometimes I eat a giant salad for lunch. Yup, in a big Tupperware…

Deviled, Boiled, Fried… Eggs

If you read my “Taking a Break-Fast!” blog then you know how much I loved eggs. Diners cross America are egg crazy-seemingly. Statically, Americans eat over 200 eggs per year. That is a lot of eggs! But what do you know about them besides the fact that chickens lay them? Heck, we don’t even know…

The Puerto Rican Vegetarian

I grew up with a traditional Puerto Rican Mother and Grandmother who home cooked 99% of our meals. Like most Americans, I was raised eating meat. My family cooked traditional Puerto Rican foods such as arroz con gandules (rice and pigeon peas), pernil (roasted pork shoulder), pastilles (or empanadas) and bistec encebollado (Beef and onions) just to name a few! I…
