Cauliflower Tacos

Do you like tacos? I’m guessing the answer is yes because who doesn’t. No, seriously, if you don’t like tacos then I… Mind blown. I think tacos are a favorite because they are delicious (duh). But really, it’s because you can make them however you like. Load them up with ingredients that you love. If you don’t like avocado, then skip it (shout out to my mom since I know that she isn’t a fan). These tacos are vegetarian and are all about the cauliflower. They may not look pretty but I had to take a picture of them before …

Deconstructed Stuffed Peppers

Do you ever take short cuts with high maintenance recipes? I did that today. My mom used to make stuffed peppers when I was a kid. If you’re not familiar with what a stuffed peppers meal is, it’s a hollowed out bell pepper stuffed with a rice and meat mixture. It’s quite good, except I always felt like there was too much pepper and not enough filling. In fact, when I told my mom that I was making this version she told me that my dad used to only eat the filling and give her the pepper. I’m genuinely laughing …

Zucchini Ravioli

I never thought that I’d really enjoy an Italian meal that’s missing pasta.  This zucchini ravioli is amazing. The zucchini  is the “ravioli” part of this recipe.  You use a vegetable peeler to slice thin wide strips (think of lasagna noodles).  Then you fill the zucchini slices with a ricotta cheese mixture and it ends up looking like a ravioli.  Nifty, right?  I’m a girl who loves pasta, and I thought I’d miss it, but I don’t.  Maybe it’s because you still get a whole lot of cheese and let’s face it, cheese makes everything better. Especially Italian dishes. My …

Black Bean Sweet Potato Enchiladas

I need to make enchiladas more often because they sure are delicious. Making enchiladas is kind of a task because it usually requires a lot of ingredients, steps and time. I won’t lie, that is the case with these enchiladas, but it’s SO worth the effort. If you see feta cheese in the photos or recipe and think “in a Mexican dish?” then you’re not alone. My husband and I thought the same, but I’m telling you, try it. It adds a touch of tang and if you think about it, is actually pretty similar to some Mexican cheeses like …

Crustless Zucchini Pie

For the record, my husband says that this is not a pie because it doesn’t have a crust.  Pies must have a crust. This is sort of like a quiche.  However, quiches are mostly made of eggs and this “pie” only has two eggs in it.  I’ve made a variety of quiches and this one is lighter than any others. Call this whatever you like.  I’ve been calling it “the zucchini thing.” It’s a technical term.  Hey, whatever works, right?  My husband knows what I’m talking about and he doesn’t get to complain about me calling it a pie. I’ve …
