Black Bean + Fresh Corn Flautas w/Papaya Pico de Gallo



For the last two summers, I’ve had the best time teaching stand-up paddleboard¬†yoga with BIG SUP Yoga at a beautiful spring fed lake here in Houston (288 Lake). Spending time in nature, soaking up the sun, floating on water and doing yoga! It’s my favorite thing to do in this entire town. I always feel like I’m on a mini vacation right here at home.

Cinco de Mayo Tortilla Soup


Cinco de Mayo Tortilla Soup

This is one of those recipes that I’d made for years and sort of forgot about. I’m glad I remembered it, because it’s so darn easy. And as a bonus, my kids completely devoured it last night for dinner. So it’s definitely a winner!

Oh so long ago I picked up a Nordstrom cookbook. Sounds a little weird I know, but they have a cafe and the food is actually really quite good. The book I have is more than 10 years old. It’s the Nordstrom Friends and Family Cookbook¬†and I’ve adapted many recipes from it. It’s not a vegan book, so I’ve had to be a little creative…which I like to do.

Their recipe for tortilla soup is outstanding. It calls for chicken, but I just add more vegetables instead. It’s awesome!

Groovy Grilled Guac + Homemade Chips



Summertime is around the corner and I’m thrilled to start cranking up the grill. Love to throw a bunch of colorful veggies together in a grill basket. Recently, I had a firm avocado and added it to my mixed grill to see what would happen. Oh. My. So awesome. So I got the idea to grill all of the ingredients for guacamole and see what it would be like.

Well, it’s pretty groovy…and really easy. I even grilled the limes! I tried it two ways: (1) everything chopped up in the grill basket; and (2) the ingredients directly on the grill. Both methods worked well, but I had a slight preference for skipping the grill basket and working with larger pieces directly on the grill.
