Cooking for Luv Lemony Kale Salad CU

05 Jan Lemony Kale Salad with Asiago + Panko

My go-to kale salad obsession, this quick recipe is a winner every single time. Be sure to choose bunches of Black/Lacinato/Elephant/Tuscan/Dino (seriously I've never seen a single vegetable with so many different names) with smaller dark and very bumpy leaves (they will be way more tender and flavorful than the XL leaves) and chiffonade them as finely as your knife will let you (for a tutorial- check out my quick video here ). With a bright and bold lemon vinaigrette, tender paper thin black kale, shredded high-quality aged asiago, and buttery toasted panko breadcrumbs, this salad will make any kale hater say KALE YEAH.[yumprint-recipe id='61']...

Southern Style Hanukkah Potato Latkes

07 Dec Southern Style Hanukkah Potato Latkes

These ain't your Bubbe's Chanukah latkes. Inspired by my trip this week to North Carolina, my traditional potato pancake recipe (based on my dad's famous "potato pancake" recipe) gets a Southern twist with the addition of my Grandma's favorite onion, the Vidalia (she used to eat them like apples), and her "Milk Gravy" (thank you, mom, for walking me through it!). Try it (trust me) and you'll never look at the festival of lights in the same way again. Happy Chanukah to y'all![yumprint-recipe id='60'] ...

Stephanie and Heather Feast of Luv

13 Nov Feast of Luv on Food Network’s Food Truck Faceoff Tonight

Cooking for Luv + Baking for Luv = Feast of Luv on Food Network's Food Truck Faceoff Tonight 11/13 at 11PMSo excited to be appearing this evening on Food Network's Food Truck Faceoff with my incredibly talented partner Heather as Feast of Luv. Tune in to see us cook up a vegetarian comfort food storm to try and win our very own food truck. Watch me fall madly in love with Jesse Palmer and his terrifying airhorn, collapse on a warehouse floor in a pile of canned goods, and create a McGyver-esque bandage out of a latex glove, flour, and duct tape (and still keep cooking)! Over the course of the competition, we whipped up some delicious quinoa meatball subs, fried avocado tacos, and more- all with "limited" resources and ingredients and navigating the extremely different world of food truck cooking: truly one of the most physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting...

27 Oct Inside Out Raw Vegan Caramel Apples

Halloween is in the air and we all know how quickly the candy induced sugar overload can take over. Why not make some healthy treats this year with my raw and vegan caramel apples. Quick, easy, and no need to bake (though you can, and they are damn delicious that way), they will make both kids and adults smile a big fat one. Stay spooky my friends! [yumprint-recipe id='57']...

13 Oct Tikka Masala Mushrooms with Smashed Yogurt Potatoes

Paneer Masala is one of my favorite Indian dishes, but I've been looking to make a meatier/healthier version since I eat it so damn often. And let's face it, really whatever the protein/veg/cheese is in the masala is truly just a vehicle for drinking up the insanely delicious sauce (and it's always good to have more veggies in your life).I created this vegetarian/cheese free recipe using the traditional method for tenderizing and marinating chicken in Indian cooking, only instead of chicken I swapped in shrooms. The result is a hearty meaty texture on the mushrooms with intense flavor all the way through, and a quick finish in the sauce bath brings it all to a very happy place. And though it may sound a bit strange, I love my Indian dishes served over chunky smashed potatoes instead of rice for a heartier meal so I included a super simple recipe...

ceviche-alt-1024x768

06 Oct Veggie Ceviche Stuffed Avocado (Vegan)

Hearts of Palm replace the standard fishy ceviche base in this tangy, spicy, and flavor packed recipe developed for Vegenaise. The key to getting this right is workin your knife skills and making every vegetable component the same size- I like mine super finely diced, but for a more rustic preparation you can pump up the size and go chunky. Serve in pretty glasses or in an emptied out avocado as shown and with plenty of your favorite tortilla chips on the side!Head on over to mayokarma.followyourheart.com for more vegan comfort food recipes!...
