Moroccan Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup 

What is better than a warm soup, stew, or chili during the winter? It has been really cold lately. During this time of year, I like to indulge on soups are always a good time. As you know my family and I recently had a moroccan christmas dinner. Moroccan Sweet Potato Lentil Soup was on…

Moroccan Berber Vegetarian Tagine

Soooo Christmas was wonderful! My mother and I really outdid ourselves. A Moroccan Christmas Dinner may have been the best theme yet! See previous post, Tangee’s Tagine. So both my mother and I have tagines. We cooked this featured dish, Moroccan Berber Vegetarian in my tagine and Moroccan Lamb in her tagine (for the meat lovers)….

New Year, New You: 31 Day Detox

As we venture in to the New Year we have the chance to create New Year resolutions, reset, refresh, and herald into new beginnings. I’ve decided to detox the 1st 31 days of 2017 to release habits that are no longer serving me, cleanse, restore balance within, enhance mental clarity, and vibrate higher.   So…

Tangee’s Tagine

Gift from my mom! My new cookable Tagine, cookable clay used to slow cook savory dishes and stews. A few years ago my mom and I decided we weren’t cooking a Thanksgiving meal all over again for Christmas dinner. We started a family tradition. Every year we choose a different culture and create dishes inspired…

Sweet Roasted Rosemary Acorn Squash Wedges

First, thank you to The Pioneer Women for this quick, easy, and delicious recipe. This was one of our side dishes for Thanksgiving dinner this year. The flavor is amazing and the aroma is heavenly. I had to share and show you the quick steps to make this! Funny thing is since meat is not invited most…

Curried Eggplant, Squash, & Chickpea Mixer 

By now you’ve probably noticed I’m an eggplant fan. I love it. My mother exposed it to me at a very young age by way of eggplant parmigiana. Not only is it good to eat, but it’s good for you. It comes loaded with vitamins and minerals, but its health benefits extend beyond just adding…

Vegetarian Jambalaya 

Have you missed me? I know it’s been a while, but I have a great reason. I started my own private practice and have been super busy building instead of blogging. I’ve felt bad and due to popular demand I made it a point to post some recent meals for you all!  Due to a…

All-You-Can-Pick Sunflowers

Today was a Saturday well spent. As usual I was reading through my local RVA mags and came across information about an “All-You-Can-Pick Sunflower weekend.” Apparently, there is a such thing as a “Farm Brewery.” Virginia’s farm brewery is known as Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery (LCCB). It is located in Goochland, VA which is about 30 minutes…

Thai Night: Red Curry Shrimp & Vegetables

Lets first start with the fact that I love Thai food. My favorite dish to order if eating out at an actual Thai restaurant is Tofu Pad Thai. I have yet to make my own, but that will soon come. It used to be drunken noodle with shrimp, but I had given up shrimp for…

Self-Care: A Must Have

Self-Care. What does it mean to you? For me self-care is essential to long-term health and balance in my every day life. Self-care are all those intentional actions that we do to care for our mental, emotional, and physical health. The health of your body, mind, and spirit are essential to safeguarding your wellbeing.  Despite, the many…

Got Beef? Get Boca! 

On evenings when I am dragging and not feeling like cooking, I turn to tacos or Boca Tostados. Because any night can be a Taco Night! The difference with the tacos in my house is that I only loaded them with beans or boca! I am a huge fan of Boca Veggie Ground Crumbles. Kraft Heinz…
