This vegan Banh Mi Salad w/ Baked Lime and Bragg Tofu has become our favorite dinner salad lately. It's salty, crunchy, tangy, spicy, umami, sweet - basically it's everything our palates love. Have you ever enjoyed an actual banh mi? You know that bright, piquant, and invigorating Vietnamese sandwich that is usually stuffed with some ingredient of substance, lots of veggies, house-made pickles, and freshness? If so, you're going to adore this salad. If not, then you're really going to adore this salad.

Don't be fooled by its possibly new-to-you ingredients. This salad is easy to buy for, easy to make, and easy to love.

We're back! If you've been following me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter (please do!) then you've probably been inundated with my pictures of food, sillyness, and Disneyland. So much Disneyland! 

My husband and I just had the best time exploring our old LA haunts. Our west coast lifestyle was very different than our current lifestyle in ATX. Not better, but different. Chiller maybe? This came to our attention while catching up with friends out there. The same beautiful and impressive people they were when we left - they all continue to be masters of conversation and hosting. Whether we were eating breakfast in their hill-top homes, walking through a park in Beverly Hills, or perusing the Museum of Jurassic Technology, our friends were at ease, confident in their space, and just not fussy. Their presence really forced me to look at how fussy I've become. I'm always fussin' about something.

Amazing Creamy Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

My Amazing Creamy Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup is spring soup at its finest. Spring is such a great soup season, don't you think? I usually think of fall weather as soup weather, but spring always surprises me with its finicky temps and delicious produce.

You may or may not have heard that Texas has been having some weather this week. Days before the storms the weathermen had been telling us to prepare for crazy flooding. I'm pretty high strung so it's not hard to stress me out, and weather is a big anxiety trigger for me. I know, I know. It's a waste of energy. I'm working on it.

Bacony Roasted Chickpeas

I really struggled with what to call these Bacony Roasted Chickpeas. Although I've done it a bunch in the past, I really do try to avoid using non-vegan descriptors in my recipe titles. Even though I love to veganize things I don't love using words like bacon. It bums me out, you know?

However, there wasn't a better name for these suckers.
