Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are a newfound glory in my life. Neither of my parents will eat them because they grew up hating them so much, so I’d never really tried them until a year ago when I tried roasting the individual petals and burnt them all (not a great introduction, but it was my fault, not… Continue reading Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Spicy Vegan Meatballs

Sometimes the eternally upset redditors get mad at me for calling things by their meat-based names when there’s no actual meat in the ingredient list.

They’re also super cheap and… Continue reading Baked Garlic Potato Wedges

Greek Scrambled Eggs with Feta, Tomato and Dill

For any of you who have grown your own veggies, you know that there’s no comparison to store-bought. Yesterday I came home to ripe tomatoes on the vine and red onions…they taste nothing like ones from grocery stores. They smell better, taste better and it’s nice to know you’re eating something that came from your… Continue reading Greek Scrambled Eggs with Feta, Tomato and Dill
