Plums, Pluots, Pie & Farewell to Yingst Ranch.

Last year, news broke that the beloved Yingst Ranch would be closing after the 2014 season. The news was a huge bummer, considering what a beautiful and wonderful farm Yingst was. They were a U-Pick operation in Littlerock, sorta out in the middle of… Continue Reading “Plums, Pluots, Pie & Farewell to Yingst Ranch.”

Nasturtium “Bleu Cheese” Biscuits.

It’s been almost three months since my last post. I thought I’d come back with more biscuits. Nasturtiums (or tropaelum) are a common garden plant with pretty flowering blossoms, which range in color from bright yellows to rich oranges and reds. The plants are… Continue Reading “Nasturtium “Bleu Cheese” Biscuits.”

Yesterday I landed back on my favorite island, Maui. In the week leading up to my departure I was suddenly inspired to make a few Hawaiian themed dishes, all which you’ve seen if you’ve been following me on Instagram. It’s early in the morning… Continue Reading “Vegan Portuguese Bean Stew.”

Cherry-Chipotle BBQ Tempeh Sandwich.

Anxiously awaiting cherry season. Last year I made a quick cherry jam to make this sauce. Then I cut some tempeh, steamed it for 7 minutes, marinated it in the sauce, then threw it on the grill and brushed it with the sauce until… Continue Reading “Cherry-Chipotle BBQ Tempeh Sandwich.”

Orange Spiked Triple Chocolate Cookies.

Recently I got the idea into my mind that I wanted to combine orange and chocolate. It’s a pretty classic combination, but I’ve only ever combined the flavors together once, in a chocolate-blood orange pudding (which was super good btw). At first, I wanted… Continue Reading “Orange Spiked Triple Chocolate Cookies.”
