October is almost over. I am not ready for winter. This is tragic. Please, save me. Is it time to move to California? It might be.
Last month, I completed a self-imposed challenge in which I tried 20 recipes from the original Oh She Glows cookbook. Coincidentally, I’m back today for the virtual cookbook tour of Oh She Glows Every Day, Angela’s second cookbook.
Like the original, this follow-up book seeks to wow plant-based and omni eaters alike with wholesome and hearty meals. Angela’s ability to create soul-enriching and nourishing meals never ceases to amaze me, always bursting with invigorating fresh flavors. If you’re stuck in a frozen veggie burger stage, Oh She Glows Every Day has several enticing recipes that may convince you to swap your ketchup and frozen fries with some green onion and roasted chickpeas. I can’t wait to try The Best Shredded Kale Salad, Mocha Empower Glo Bars, Roasted Breakfast Hash, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Coconut “Bacon,” and the Sweet Potato Casserole. And that’s just the beginning!
I will not rest until I add cardamom to every single thing I can think of. One day I will have an entire cardamom section of my blog. <3
I’ve been wanting to make my own nut butter recipe for a while, but I hate the feeling of seeing all my nuts disappear in a matter of seconds; one minute I have a mason jar full of pecans, and the next they’re gone. Because I ordered a massive canister of cashews from Amazon, and I don’t eat them very often, I realized this was my chance! (more…)
It’s been a while since my last cobbler recipe! Over a full year, in fact. I found inspiration to return to this format when I found myself with an abundance of fresh cherries, blueberries, and strawberries, all dying (quite literally) to be consumed within 48 hours.
The secret to this recipe is waiting until the berry mixture is bubbling. Don’t take it out any sooner. It’s kind of like when you bake a casserole and you have to wait until the creamy or cheesy mixture starts bubbling before it’s truly done (and I was never patient enough to let that happen, which is why I never make casseroles).

Okay, I’m relish-obsessed. I definitely go through phases with my food. There was 2012’s baked oatmeal phase. 2013’s overnight oats phase. 2014’s breakfast cobbler phase. 2015’s zucchini phase and flavored PB2 phase. Apparently, this is my relish phase.
If you haven’t experienced the relish merriment yet, let me try to convince you: the small pieces of fruit make it easy to eat because you can scoop up a little bit of fresh and flavorful relish for each bite of porridge. Relish also adds a unique and interesting twist to a simple porridge, or it can amp up the flavor if the fruit you’re using loses its punch when cooked into oatmeal (e.g. kiwi, peach, melon). (more…)
Mi novio recently told me the smartest thing ever. He claims cha in Japanese is “tea.” Think about it: kombuCHA. MatCHA. It’s also not a far cry from chai, which means “tea” in languages such as Arabic and Hindu (based on my very quick research). Brilliant.
I am becoming more comfortable with matcha as I learn how to combine it with other flavors. Initially, it seems like it wouldn’t pair well with anything else, but after trying Matcha Marketplace oatmeal packets, I see that it’s far more cooperative than I realized. As matcha becomes more popular here in the USA, I think we will see it incorporated into increasingly unexpected products. Are Matcha Skittles in our future?? 😜 (more…)

This morning I’m enjoying the springtime blooms in the garden and in my breakfast bowl! The porridge base is a seedy, but “creamy,” almond vanilla oatmeal garnished with fresh pineapple, grapes, strawberries, quinoa puffs and mint leaves. So yummy! If you’d like some tips on making edible roses check out the awesome videos at @secretsquirrelfood. My new website is taking shape. Stay tuned! Have yourself a great day! 🍲🍇🍍🌹 #breakfasting #springisintheair #strawberries
I always liked the idea of an oatmeal dedicated to chocolate-covered strawberries, but I figured I basically already had one with my Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal. However, I’ve recently been making a thin chocolate PB2 concoction and using it as a sauce over my banana soft serve, and that gave me inspiration for this recipe.
I don’t cook strawberries in the oatmeal often, as I love the juicy freshness they provide as a topping (uncooked). But every now and then, a recipe idea comes along in which cooked-down berries are the most fitting. Not every recipe can be fudge-based, and pink porridge is delightful. 😉 (more…)
Happy Wednesday! The sun has finally come out again in New York City, and the forecast shows sun for the next week. ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ That means I’ll finally be able to get back to blogging.
You see, because I live in a Brooklyn apartment, it’s not feasible for me to take pictures outside (much to my displeasure). I have to take all my pictures right next to my bedroom window to get some natural light, and to get enough light, I need it to be MEGA sunny. Cloudy days work great for outside pictures, but not indoors. The past two weeks have been endlessly cloudy, resulting in me running out of recipes to post. My apologies.
For those of you unfamiliar with dirt pie (and that could very well be many of you), it’s a dessert with chocolate pudding topped with crushed Oreos and gummy worms. It’s a popular dessert to serve kids, especially around Halloween. (more…)

Well, my least favorite holiday is coming up. I am the Scrooge of Valentine’s Day. I just don’t appreciate gift-giving holidays; there’s too much pressure. It’s the same reason I prefer Thanksgiving over Christmas–no gifts! 🙂
However, in the past couple of years, my rigid refusal to participate in holiday-themed recipes has waned. I can’t even remember why I was against them in the first place. I’m actually such a festive person! (more…)
