Birthday Brunch Board

After putting together last year’s Birthday Brunch Board (I later did another one inspired by Thanksgiving), I noticed there was exactly as many items as years I’ve been breathing. Not one to ignore coincidences, but instead catalog them as fate, I found it fitting to declare it a new tradition…a birthday brunch board featuring an item per year. At…

Raw Brownie Protein Bars

These raw brownie protein bars are good in every sense of the word. They’re completely waste free, vegan and really damn tasty. We’ve been making a batch once a week for such a long time now that I can’t imagine life without them. Burton needs to eat nearly 4000 calories a day and that’s not easy…

Almond Milk

I love the process of making almond milk. For some reason it’s just so gratifying. It’s incredibly easy and turns one ingredient (almonds) into two insanely useful products (almond milk AND the leftover pulp). The milk itself is a whole ‘nother beast from the store bought stuff and only takes about 3 active-minutes (meaning not…

Curry Pizza with Cranberry Chutney & Labneh

This fall, I made the mistake of telling Burton that I could never have too many pumpkins. Never ever. Too many pumpkins? No such thing, nope, since they’re by far one of my favorite things to cook and just generally look at/be in the presence of. Pumpkin finds its way into everything I make: pesto,…

A Festive Feast

Last night, Burton and I jokingly wondered what kind of poor, tortured shlubs we must’ve been in our past life in order to get so lucky this time around (because that’s obviously how it works). I surprised him with a little painting/drawing station and a feast so special that one look and you knew ‘Christmas…

Vegan Pho

This is the 20th huge pot of pho I’ve made since September, so I figured it was finally time to give it the attention it so rightfully deserves and demands on the blog. Pho is one of the most addicting and nourishing things I’ve ever come across. If you don’t want to get sick this…

Potato and Cauliflower Gratin

  It’s that time of the year where all you want is hearty meals, straight from the oven, and I’m here to help you with that. The top to this gratin is as crispy as potato chips, but below the surface is layers and layers of rich, velvety deliciousness. It’s satisfying yet not too heavy;…

Dear Guts’ Favorite Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! I love any excuse to cook big meals, especially ones including squash and any excuse to have the oven roaring all evening since our radiators aren’t working (yeah, as I type this it’s 56 degrees in my apartment and Capslock is trying to crawl under my sweater). This post is to show…

Thanksgiving Tacos

Cranberry/Chipotle sauce between the shells. Cornbread stuffing ‘meat’balls. Apple cider brussels sprout slaw. Sour cream gravy.  When telling my friend about these Thanksgiving tacos, I said “it’s like a pilgrim came in your mouth”. Though I know I’d probably be better off not having repeated that sentiment, I’m not sure how else I’d adequately describe…

One Dressing To Rule Them All

This salad dressing is, seriously, extraordinary. I’ve made hundreds of different salad dressings over the last couple of years, but none came close to being as worthy of obsession as this one is. After making a version of it over a month ago, I’ve looked forward to eating huge salads every day whereas I generally…

Pickle Relish

This may seem like an ill-timed post, seeing as how most people associate relish with summer/grilling and, as much as we may try to fight it, that season is waving goodbye. But, you know what, I didn’t go to an Amish market at the beginning of summer and buy a crazy amount of little cucumbers…
