Quick Chicken Coq Au Vin with Roasted Carrots and Bite Size Potatoes!

Everyone has a comfort food that makes them want to hug their plate and sometimes it’s as simple as creating a fragrant, thick and caramelized sauce that warms the heart! Today we’re putting a spin on the usually labor-intensive French classic, Coq Au Vin. This super simple skillet version takes only 45 minutes to execute and still retains the…

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie with Soy Chorizo!

Although we are not very excited that it will soon be time to dust off our winter sweaters and don our knee high boots, we are relishing in the fact that comfort food season is upon us! What better way to kick off this comfort fest than with a rich and hearty vegetarian stew, blanketed with…

Pub Style Beer Cheese Dip with Fresh Pretzel Bread!

We saved the best for last on this fabulous double dippin’ Friday!

Sweet Pea and Wasabi Hummus!

Fall has finally found us and so has our week of dips! Although the weather hasn’t quite gotten the memo, we decided to celebrate the change in season none the less.

Fair Time Funnel Cake!

The dog days of summer have come to an end and fair season is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate than with some good old fashioned funnel cake.

Roasted Cauliflower, Black Bean, Corn and Cilantro Dip with a Kick!
