Pulled Spaghetti Squash Tacos

Embrace laziness with tacos. The ultimate crowd pleaser and stress-free dinner with room for picky eaters. These are a great vegetarian option for summer potlucks, weeknight dinners, etc. because they’re light and easy to prep in advance. Realistically you could make everything in advance then just heat up the squash and shells when you’re ready… Continue reading Pulled Spaghetti Squash Tacos

Low-Sodium Potato Waffles

If you’re anything like me, your stomach can’t handle a sugar-overload kind of breakfast.

For whatever reason, the rice noodles clumped together and remained hardened in certain spots even though they were… Continue reading Japanese Cold Noodle Salad (Hiyashi Chuka)

Looking at the post below, I’m sure the long list of ingredients/lengthy-looking instructions may be off-putting when you can just grab a burrito for $7 elsewhere. It’s really not as difficult as it may appear (I promise) and once you’ve got a knack for making homemade burritos you’ll never want to stop. I put down… Continue reading Classic Restaurant-Style Burritos (a.k.a. the Best Damn Burritos You’ll Ever Make at Home)
