Paris Recommendations

Walking Nothing I like more than getting lost in the beautiful French roads and admiring the architecture and various city halls in the different districts! Paris is an incredibly walkable city, and I spent days wandering around from food spots to tourist sites! Public transit is also doable (I used google maps) if your feet…

Green Shakshuka

Shakshuka is something that’s now become a brunch staple, but it’s a dish I’ve been familiar with all my life from Israel. In Israel (especially during winter time) green shakshuka is almost just as popular as the traditional red version, and it’s one of my favorites! I’ve tried a few recipes, including Eden Grinshpan’s version…

Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Frittata

Frittata (baked egg omelette) is one of my favorite brunch/breakfast foods. This recipe (inspired by Country Living) is my go to for when I have large amounts of spinach or kale that I want to use before it spoils. Here’s how I make this Sweet Potato Kale Frittata INGREDIENTS 6 large eggs (I used pasture…

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Right now the best soup I have EVER made. Thank you ginabnutrition for this recipe (found on her instagram). The fall flavors of this soup are just incredible, and I love that this soup uses seasonal ingredients. I made a few adjustments based on ingredients I had at home to her original recipe (adjustments will…

Cauliflower Tikka Masala

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for Cauliflower Tikka Masala for a while after seeing it on The Cutting Veg instagram feed, and finally got around to making it this weekend! The recipe is not an authentic tikka masala, but it is delicious! Plus, it is dairy free, for all those that are lactose…

Homemade Garlic Knots

I was out of bread at home and looking for a homemade bread recipe that also used garlic (which I had a surplus of), and found this DELICIOUS garlic knots recipe from Pretty.Simple.Sweet. They were fluffy, flavorful, and buttery, just how I like them! I didn’t have a standing mixer, so I used my dough mixer…

Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls with Yogurt Glaze

This banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls recipe (slightly edited) from Minimalist Baker and Yogurt Glaze recipe from Epicurious is BANANAS B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Original recipe is vegan using vegan butter, I chose to make mine with real butter because my stomach is fine with dairy (and it is what I had at home). Here’s how I made it: Banana Bread Cinnamon…

Overnight Buckwheat Chia Oatmeal

I bought a huge bag of buckwheat to make my Homemade Seeded Buckwheat Bread, but since I do not have a food processor or blender in my new place (which I need to make the bread), I was not able to use my buckwheat for this recipe. I was looking for another buckwheat recipe that…
