Spinach Tomato Tortellini Soup

This tomato soup is perfect for those chilly fall and winter evenings. Here is why I love it:

It is quick. From start to finish, it takes about 20 minutes to make and you will have enough for lunches the next day (and the day after that).
It is easy, requires little prep, and uses ingredients you likely have in your pantry.
It is versatile- for example: instead of cheese tortellini, use beef, chicken or whatever catches your eye at the grocery store, or try substituting spinach with a heartier green like kale.

Little Northern Bakehouse – Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

French toast can be a challenge for vegan eaters, with its egg- and milk-based batter. After all, it is that very batter that makes the dish so delicious. But as it turns out, a plant-based alternative is not impossible.

This Pumpkin French Toast Casserole is amazing for many reasons. The star of the dish is the gluten free Cinnamon & Raisin Loaf from Little Northern Bakehouse.

Little Northern Bakehouse’s breads are gluten-free, non-GMO and 100% plant-based, meaning they are egg and dairy-free. In addition to the cinnamon & loaf, they also offer a millet & chia loaf and a seeds & grain loaf. If you are buying gluten free bread, you will be hard-pressed to find better tasting bread than Little Northern Bakehouse.

Despite working all day, my mom always had dinner on the table every day at 5:00- a feat I did not appreciate until I was much older. Eating dinner together was a non-negotiable in our house. No matter how busy our lives got, the one thing we could depend on was a home-cooked meal. Even if it meant my mom being in the kitchen until 9 pm preparing dinner for the next day. Like my mother, I understand the importance of a home-cooked meal. Unlike my mother, I do not plan my dinners three days in advance, sometimes even one day ahead is pushing it. This usually results with me scrambling for ideas only to realize I am…

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich Recipe

By Posted on 0 Comments2min read419 views

Philly cheesesteaks are iconic, and for good reason. A well-made one can be a thing of beauty. All of the ingredients kind of… fuse together. Thinly shaved beef, glistening caramelized onions, melty gooey cheese – all loaded on a perfectly toasted roll (pause to wipe drool).

Making cheesesteaks at home doesn’t require any fancy moves, only the willingness to turn your kitchen into a South Philly hoagie shop.
