Leek Vegetable Broth

Have you ever made your own vegetable broth? Let me tell you, it is 10x better than the canned stuff and so worth the extra step! The other day, I made a recipe that called for leeks – white parts only. The green stems from leeks are often discarded because …

Sunshine Summer Salad

Swims, hikes, and movie nights are regular occurrences in my life this summer – thanks to a vivacious toddler. Raising kids is almost more fun than being a kid, in my opinion. I love being part of my daughter’s daily routine of fun and play. And the best part is I get to …

Lemon Herb Chicken Salad

Life has been crazy in the Suddeath house these last couple weeks – in the best possible way. But one thing that has been tossed out the window is our normal routine. Grocery shopping, meal planning, and food prepping have all been haphazard to say the least. So in a last minute attempt to …

A Purple Hull Pea Salad

Pea Picking Memories Picking and shelling purple hull peas during my childhood summers will forever be ingrained in my head. Every summer, with large brown paper sacks in tow, my mom and sisters and I would make our way a few miles down the road to my Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Max’s house to …

Revolutionary Vegan Ceviche

Vegetarians and vegans rejoice! Ceviche is no longer off the menu for you and I have an incredibly delicious vegan ceviche recipe to prove it!

Za’atar Spiced Crispy Potato Wedges with Cucumber-Yogurt Dip

It is pretty difficult to find specialty foods when living in a small town in Mississippi. Whereas big cities have literally hundreds of food stores offering a large selection of the newest trends, there are only three main grocery stores here and they stock basic ingredients. I don’t say that to complain, but rather to …

Simple Joys You know those moments in life where a simple truth you’ve known for years suddenly hits your heart and shakes you to the core? This past week, after taking a couple days to retreat from life’s responsibilities, a simple truth finally moved from my head to my heart. The message …

Bulgur Salad with Roasted Chickpeas and Red Peppers

Are you loving the roasted chickpea movement right now? I for sure am! If you haven’t noticed, chickpeas are like the vegetarian protein of choice as chicken is for meat eaters these days. And I’m loving it! What I love about chickpeas, and especially roasted chickpeas, is their heartiness. They’re not …

Summer Squash Chips + Tzatziki Sauce

I had every intention of making a hearty, Fall-inspired meal this week to welcome in the autumnal equinox. Maybe a vegetable stew or something with pumpkin. However, as my circumstances changed and I found myself driving 8 hours home entertaining a toddler solo, every ounce of me was screaming for …

Summer Chickpea and Corn Soup (V + GF)

I am a sucker for soups. They are, essentially, my lazy way of getting a healthy meal on the table. Adding tons of veggies to a pot and calling it a day is how I like to roll. No side dishes or extra planning required. Just a bowl of yummy …
