Perfect Summer Spring Rolls

Now that the weather has turned to lava here in the Sonoran desert I like light lunches that don’t require me to stand over a hot stove for more than 10 minutes.  A steaming cup of soup would make me feel like I was melting like the chapstick I left in my car earlier.  Instead I opt for sandwiches, salads, […]

Savory Potato Pancakes

I bought a huge bag of potatoes right when quarantine started.  As such we have used them in so many recipes.  These potato pancakes have been one of our favorites and are an amazing comfort food.  I love the original recipe I found on pinterest from Phal’s market but I made a few changes to add a little more flavor […]

Comforting Kimchi Udon

Sustainability during Quarantine

Plastic Bag Guilt Sustainability during quarantine has me feeling really guilty lately. All the plastic I’ve been bringing into my house is cringe worthy, especially all the plastic bags!  I have really made an effort this last year to reduce the amount of plastic and paper bags I get from stores, so much so that I have even run out […]

Green Chile Cornbread Waffles

Green Chile Cornbread Waffles One lazy Sunday, while reminiscing over our trip to Europe, the hubs mentioned one of his favorite meals had been the cornbread waffles we had in London.  I’d seen a similar dish on the menu at a local AZ brunch spot.  That spot has since closed for good so I decided to see if I could […]

Sustainable Food Choices Made Easy!

Sustainable Food Choices Made Easy! A sustainable diet shouldn’t just have a lower carbon footprint.  It should also be easy to maintain.  This means it should allow us to feel full and satisfied, be nutritious, and be affordable. I do this by eating a lot less meat and replacing it with alternative protein sources like beans and lentils.  This is […]

Introduction to Sustainability

Introduction to Sustainability  One of my goals for this year is to start living a more sustainable lifestyle.  It’s basically the reason I started this blog, as a place to document my journey.  I want to share what I learn so we can all make informed decisions in our own lives and hopefully show how easy it can be.  In […]
