Recipe Recap

Kaki, good lord, Colorado was fun.


Haven’t done a ton of cooking since coming back from Kristin’s wedding (congrats, Kristin and Lutfi!), but before the trip we did a whole cooking day at Cooper’s that was pretty spectacular.  Here are some of the highlights:

America’s Test Kitchen’s Sloppy Joes

God I love a good Sloppy Joe.  I think ground beef and a can of Manwich is pretty freakin’ good, but as always America’s Test Kitchen takes the pretty freakin’ good and makes it aMAzing.

Breakfast Casserole

Another fully non-vegan recipe, but for us omnivores this made for a great reheated breakfast throughout the week. Cooper advised she used hot Italian turkey sausage, ciabatta instead of white bread, and green onion.

Lentil & Sausage Stew

Sooooo good!  And froze like a dream.

Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream


Kaki, you were not kidding that coconut milk as an ice cream base is amazing!  Next time I make it I’ll add a little vodka to keep what little ice crystals formed at bay, but otherwise, quite a winner.


Black Bean & Corn Salad

This, Kaki, is the one you need to make this weekend for lunches this week.  We added some red quinoa, divided it into tupperware, and even the avocado keep just fine for the week.  It was phenomenal, I’m thinking of making it again this week myself.

Holly made their family recipe for okra beef stew that is super good, and her boyfriend James made bacon-wrapped steaks and baked potatoes that you layer with onions and butter right in the tin foil.  We ate like kings!

Can’t wait to see you and your new place over Labor Day.  Let me know what ingredients to bring and we can just get to cooking when I get there. 🙂

From my kitchen to yours,

P.S.  One more Colorado pic for good measure:
