The name says it all; luxuriously creamy curry dressing with a pleasantly sweet tang. Lip-smackingly-good!

This gal is currently making the slow transition to 95% vegan (perfection is daunting),  over here and having so much fun doing it!  To some people, the thought of adapting a vegan lifestyle all about restrictions and discipline.  A year ago that would be me too.  But now I see it as opening my eyes to not only a healthier way of life, but a more creative and exciting way to prepare food. When the main part of your meal doesn’t include animal product, it allows you to get craftier than you may have in the past. Your imagination can truly run wild with ways to make plant based meals taste and look amazing. Even more so, it is incredibly gratifying to share your nutritious foods with your family- and have them ask for seconds. (more…)

Dijon-dressed Kale Salad with Roasted Sweet Potato & Apple

010001A little salty with your sweet, a little crispy with your crunch. A little adventure in every bite. That’s the way this salad goes

I was struggling with the idea of posting today; let alone eating anything besides oatmeal and peanut butter. You see, I have a very sick puppy on my hands and its heart breaking to see an innocent animal in even the slightest pain. (more…)

Cheeky Coconut Cherry Bombs

food gawk cherry025

Tart, cheeky, and surprisingly creamy; these cherry bombs are a tiny reminiscent of the cherry’s & cream Danish pastries from my childhood’s past.
