Green Apple Ginger Celery Juice


This spicy Green Apple Ginger Celery Juice is my go-to for a hydrating morning drink. It is especially helpful for me right now since the air quality in Los Angeles is still not great from the wildfires. I have asthma so I have to be extra careful about taking care of my lungs. And for some reason spicy ginger juice has always helped when my lungs start to feel cranky. But even when I feel great, this juice is awesome.

This is my current fave drink to start the day. Come sunrise, I pop out of bed and crave it's vibrant, sweet, spicy, mildly grassy flavor. Sometimes I add more celery to make it less sweet, and other days (like today) I add extra ginger for more spiciness. I also love the boost of vitamin C this recipe brings.

Vegan Gingerbread Men Cookies


It's November, so that means holiday recipes are coming. It may be seventy-seven degrees today, but still, holiday recipes are coming. And right now we are obsessed with these Vegan Gingerbread Men Cookies. They are pretty easy to make and are so perfect for nibbling as a snack, with tea or cocoa or after-dinner treat. You can frost or ice them, decorate them, or leave them a la natural. I love a thin layer of frosty icing and a face of some sort. I mean, if you are going to make little men, you should probably give them faces, yes? I like to make a few grumpy men too, for a bit of variety.

These cookies are also perfect for gifting because they are sturdy and still delicious even after a few days. Plus, they are super cute! I will admit I don't go all 'Martha' when decorating my Gingerbread Men, but even still, they are pretty cute.

Vegan Baked Mac 'n Cheese


It's always funny how recipes can evolve in the kitchen. This started out as a white cheddar cheezy mac and ended up as this crazy-good, cheezy, fluffy Vegan Baked Mac 'n Cheese. I am pretty happy about the turn of events. This plant-based pasta dish is perfect as an entree or side dish. I love how baking the pasta allows the cheese sauce to fluff up the pasta and marinate each curly elbow. I actually used whole wheat pasta for the added fiber and protein -- and because I had it on hand. But you would never guess this is a whole wheat pasta because it is so light and fluffy. You can use any pasta you'd like, but I think a hearty wheat pasta works really well as a 'baked' Mac 'n Cheese.

Ok, enough rambling about this recipe, let's get to it! I want YOU to have this cozy, cravable dish on your table tonight!...
