I’m a person of habit when it comes to cooking. I have a huge inventory of recipes and meals in my head, but I revert to the small handful of simple last minute dishes 90% of the time. It’s just too easy. However, I do like to consciously change it up every so often. Variety is the spice …Read More
Before I get started with another simple tempeh dish I want to make a few notes about ingredients and equipment. In my recipes I state what I use and what I prefer, but always adjust to your own tastes and what you have on hand. The idea is that is is EASY. Don’t go out of your way …Read More

I often associate creamy soups with winter and needing warmth. But I’ve been craving some rich yet light soup lately and played around to get a yummy summer soup. We ate this hot when it was fresh and then it was delicious eaten cold the next day for lunch. My favorite part about this soup? Its easy!
When I make tempeh dishes I usually default to using soy sauce to season it. Regardless of the kind of tempeh I’m making, soy sauce is my automatic “salt” addition. Since I started contributing to this blog I have been trying to break that and use miso in my tempeh dishes. Here is a simple recipe for a …Read More
Who doesn’t like dressing? It brings pizazz to whatever you’re eating and can add nutrients and probiotic organisms to your meal when you use miso as an ingredient.

Nothing says the holidays to me like delicious warming smells coming from the kitchen. I like to make cranberry spice cakes, ginger cookies, mulled cider and my favorite: Amazake-Nog! Amazake has that thick creamy texture similar to eggnog. When warmed with the spices and vanilla the smells are heavenly and the coziness …Read More
