Choose Organic on Global Champagne Day

Choose Organic on Global Champagne Day

I know I’m not alone when I say that champagne is one of my favorite wines to drink, but it is also one of the categories that can be tricky if you’re looking for organic and vegan wines. It’s estimated that less than 10% of the entire Champagne region farms...

Showing Cider Some Love

Showing Cider Some Love

I’ve been feeling a big inspiration to dive into ciders lately. Maybe it’s because I live in New York state, the second largest apple-producing state in the country, and it seems only fitting that I should learn and drink more from this category. But maybe it’s...

Norvegan Cider Donuts

Norvegan Cider Donuts

Autumn has finally arrived! One of the best things about this time of year is the smell of sweet cinnamon everywhere. So naturally I had to think of a fitting recipe for my favorite time of the year. My husband is not really fond of sweets or a ton of baked goods, but...

Moroccan Tagine with Chickpeas and Vegetables

Moroccan Tagine with Chickpeas and Vegetables

When I went vegan nearly 8 years ago I was committed to never missing out on the flavors, textures, sensations, and pleasure I so enjoyed while eating the traditional dishes I’d grown up with. So much of our food is based on tradition, memories from childhood, fun...

Scandinavian Open-Face Sandwiches

I had all sorts of plans to publish this post over a month ago but it seemed like a beast of an article to write so I kept postponing it. But as the saying goes, all good things are worth waiting for, so I hope you will agree that there will be a lot of valuable info...

Wild Mushroom Risotto

Wild Mushroom Risotto

Risotto is one of those dishes many are intimidated by, and less likely to attempt making…There’s nothing really magical or scary about it, and when you take a bite into a well-made risotto, well… it’s definitely worth standing over the stove for the 20-30 minutes it requires your undivided attention.

Pairing Wine with Movies

Pairing Wine with Movies

With colder and darker days creeping in and social gatherings still not advisable, I love curling up in the evening with a good movie and a nice glass of wine…Querciabella’s wines have such big personalities, I thought it would be fun to try and pair them with some of my favorite movies. My ideas are listed below. I hope they may inspire you to pick up one or a few of these bottles or to try your own combinations and have fun pairing wine with your favorite movies!

Cold Peanut-Sesame Noodles with Tofu

Cold Peanut-Sesame Noodles with Tofu

I love noodles in all forms, and when I want a healthy, flavorful, quick, and easy meal I almost always resort to some type of Asian cuisine. This version of a sesame noodle dish with peanut sauce is more of a Chinese-American dish that I like in part because you don’t have to stress about serving it right away after you cook the noodles.

Oven Roasted Summer Tomato Frittata

Oven Roasted Summer Tomato Frittata

This time of year I’m definitely drowning in tomatoes, and you won’t hear me complaining for a second about it. Tomatoes are one of my favorite things about summer to eat and to grow. They are colorful, super sweet, juicy and of course really good for you too…But the best thing I’ve made to date with tomatoes is a simple frittata made with Just Eggs and zucchini and corn from the farmer’s market.

Corn & Zucchini Fritters

Corn & Zucchini Fritters

Both corn and zucchini are the quintessential summer foods. They are plentiful this time of year, both at farmer’s markets and in grocery stores and if you are a member of a weekly CSA, I’m sure you have received plenty of summer squash thus far. So what to do with them, week after week? My mission is to always experiment with different recipes, discovering the versatility of these gorgeous vegetables.

Tofu Souvlaki with Vegan Tzatziki

Tofu Souvlaki with Vegan Tzatziki

Lately, I’ve enjoyed cooking with tofu. This fermented soybean product is a very versatile product filled with protein, iron and calcium, and many other proven nutritional features and health benefits…The good news is that tofu makes for a brilliant food on the grill and can be seasoned, marinated, and prepared in so many ways, depending on what you feel like cooking and eating.
