Memorial Day is only three days away!  In celebration of the "unofficial" kick-off to summer, I am sharing three creative ways to top your crackers this entertaining season.  An added bonus is the fact that all three ideas just so happen to be vegetarian and gluten-free! The simplicity of cheese and crackers is good.  But that [...]


A fresh, filling, and flavorful Tomato, Onion, and Artichoke Chickpea Salad that is both vegan and gluten-free. It makes for the perfect main or side dish contribution to a spring or summer gathering! I have not mentioned it here on the blog before, but I am a bit of a reality TV junkie.  Whether it [...]


A protein and veggie-packed Mexican skillet that has summer written all over it... even if you choose to eat it at the start of spring! This dish looks like all sorts of summertime.  It tastes like it, too! About two weeks ago, Omaha enjoyed 88 degree weather in the middle of MARCH.  It was slightly [...]


If you have been around Clean Eating Veggie Girl for a while now, you are well aware that I have a thing for chickpeas.  I have featured them in countless recipes, and they often appear in the dishes I share for my Friday Foodie Favorites posts.  Though it took me years of my life to ever [...]


A step-by-step pictorial on How to Roast Whole Carrots.  Serve them alongside your favorite dish or in place of french fries, and eat them as a quick vegan, gluten-free snack! I am honestly beyond surprised that it took me nearly 27 years of my life to start roasting whole carrots.  I am mostly surprised about [...]


Flavorful, crispy Cinnamon Turmeric Sweet Potato Fries that are both vegan and anti-inflammatory.  Pair these with your favorite (veggie) burger, or just dip 'em in ketchup for a snack! I like vegetables... a lot.  I'm sure you never would have guessed that by the title of this blog! There are really only a few vegetables that I [...]


Maybe some days you feel like eating fish.  Other times, you may feel like eating vegan.  So what happens if you have both feelings at the same time? In that situation, I'd recommend buying Fishless Filets from Gardein™ (garden + protein = gardein), whipping up an easy peasy homemade tartar sauce (recipe below), and going to town!  You'll [...]


Raw, vegan Cheezy Broccoli Poppers that are perfect for snacking.  These will turn anyone and everyone into broccoli lovers- kids and "big kids at heart" included! Don't tell my boyfriend this, but I have never been a huge broccoli lover.  If you asked him what his favorite food of all time is, he would probably say [...]


So this happened on Saturday... Yyyup.  I got all crazy and ate fish again! Three Cooks One Kitchen: A Fish Fiesta I think when I announced I was eating fish again, Erin and Joanna might have been a bit secretly excited.  The majority of our Three Cooks One Kitchen posts have been easily "veggified" for [...]

I don't really do football.  Tailgating is fun (mostly for the beverages) and spending time with my friends is great, but I have just never really gotten into football.  I am more of a [...]
