01 Apr Hippie Hash

Hippie Hash Yield: 4 Servings Cook Time: 40 minutes While in college at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, the Fleetwood Diner ("The Hippest Little Diner in Michigan") was our go-to Sunday morning tradition to help cure our inevitable hangovers. Every single time, I ordered their incredible Hippie Hash- a griddle combo of hash browns, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and broccoli topped with a generous portion of feta. The addition of feta to hash browns was a life altering food discovery for me, and to this day whenever I end up out for breakfast I make a special request for feta on top of whatever hash the restaurant offers. When at home, I whip up this slightly more refined version of Fleetwood’s college student favorite.     My recipe calls for using one frying pan or griddle to cook (most of) the veggies in steps, so it’s not exactly a breakfast in a hurry recipe.

Cooking for Luv - Brussels Sprouts, Kale, and Beet Raw Salad

26 Feb Raw Kale, Brussels, and Beet Salad: Confetti Style

RAW KALE, BRUSSELS, AND BEET SALAD: CONFETTI STYLE Yield: Serves 6 as a side, 2 for a main Time: 20 Minutes Brussels Sprout haters will not know what hit them with this salad: the raw super thin slices give a fresh twist to the loathed veggie. This key to the success is the light and airy texture you get from a Japanese Mandolin (purchase online or at any Japanese market for about $25). You can come close to replicating the paper thin shreds with some killer knife skills, but the amount of time you save and the precision and consistency you get from the mandolin can’t be matched. Be VERY careful with the blade, it is extremely sharp!   Ingredients Salad 1 Bunch of Lacinado/Dino/Tuscan Kale (about ¾ Lb) 1 Lb Brussels sprouts (the larger the sprouts the better) 1 Small Red Beet 1/4 Small Red Onion (about 2 TBS) 3 TBS Shredded Parmesan Cheese (optional) 1/4 Cup Toasted Walnuts   Dressing Juice from 1...

Cooking for Luv - Papas Tacos, Cumin Roasted Carrots, and Beer Braised Black Beans

21 Feb Papas Tacos with Mole, Roasted Cumin Carrots, & Beer Braised Black Beans for Two

An elegant and lighter take on a Mexican spread, this vegetarian meal is perfect when you're craving something south of the border without all the grease. And although it looks fancy, it is quite simple and can be made in under an hour.  I like to use Sprouted Corn Tortillas to add some extra nutrition to the meal, but any variety works. You can easily make this Vegan by leaving out the cheese and substituting Earth Balance or EVOO for the butter. Enjoy! xo- Stephanie Menu Main: Papas Tacos with Mole, Avocado, and Quick Pickled Onions Sides: Roasted Tri-Color Carrots with Cumin Seeds and Beer Braised Black Beans with Cilantro and Garlic   Roasted Tri-Color Carrots with Cumin Seeds Yield: Serves 2 Time: 25 Minutes   Ingredients 1 Bunch of Tri-Colored Carrots, quartered lengthwise then cut in half 1 Tablespoon of Cumin Seeds ¼ Red Onion, Sliced into ¼ inch strips 2 Tablespoons of EVOO 1 Tablespoon of Morton’s Kosher Salt   Directions Preheat Oven to 425 Toss all ingredients...
