Cottage Pie

Cottage Pie open three quarters

When I was a kid it was a treat to order lunch from the tuck shop (or canteen). We’d write our orders on a brown paper bag and put our money in exact change inside, and drop it off at the tuck shop in the morning.  At lunch time we would pick up our brown paper bags with our orders inside.  Almost every time I would order some sort of pie: a meat pie, an apple pie that was topped with whipped cream and powdered sugar, or cottage pie.  Cottage pie was my favorite: a shortbread crust filled with meat, veggies and gravy, topped with mashed potatoes and baked to perfection. Yum.  I would use a fork and scoop out the top and filling and then eat the crust!

The Beyond Meat Beast Burger, with the works!

When I first heard that Beyond Meat was planning to release a vegan, gluten-free “beefy” burger last summer called the Beast Burger, I was instantly excited. I love burgers. I really do. But let’s be honest. There are few vegan burgers that really satisfy. There are few vegan burgers that you can really sink your teeth into. And there are even fewer vegan burgers that can stand up to the works. And while some seitan-based burgers may get partially there, for me they are out of the question because of the gluten. 

Now, “The works?” you may very well ask. Yes. The works.

Creamy Parsley Dressing & Quinoa Salad

Sometimes I want a creamy dressing, but not all the calories that go along with them.  When I was making a quinoa salad for dinner last week, I whipped up this creamy, briny & totally tasty dressing in the blender. The best thing about it? It’s incredibly light, but it tastes like it’s not.

I’ve been using a lot of parsley lately for no other reason than I have a ton of it growing in my kitchen.
