Vegan Weeknight Dinners

I create recipes for a living and even I sometimes need a little weeknight inspiration. I usually only have 30 minutes to get food on the table once we get home during the week, so I wanted to share 5 of my favorite vegan go-tos. Here’s a little roundup.

Happy cooking!

Heart Pizza + Sweet Treats for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Tonight we are making heart-shaped individual pizzas at home with the boys. I just bought some already-baked pizza crusts and use scissors to cute them into hearts. Then I put out bowls with toppings so the boys can make their own, and sip pink bubbly while they bake!

Here’s are a few more Valentine favorites from previous years….

2. JEWELRY

The thinnest, most delicate rose gold ring from Ariel Gordon. I now wear mine daily and sleep in it too.

3. ART

I recently got one of Great Honour Goods’ Flower Farm prints and LOVE it. It’s an aerial drone photo of a flower fields in bloom. Stunning! And they come in all sizes. (see below)

4. FOR THE HOME

  • CANON SELPHY PRINTER: I use mine to print 4x6s from my phone in an instant. I put them on the fridge and mail them to the grandparents so easily!

  • CANDLES: I light a candle at dinner every night and try to use natural toxin-free beeswax candles. I can never have enough!

  • BEES WRAP: I was recently gifted some of this sustainable plastic wrap alternative and I love it!

  • SWISS-STYLE WOOL BLANKET. This has been on our couch for a couple years now, love it.

  • UMAMI MART: All my favorite barware and cocktail glasses are from Umami Mart. Especially these gold-rimmed tumblers (see below) and gold cocktail shaker. Treat-yo-self (or someone else… Dec. 19th is the last day to order for Christmas delivery.)

  • INSTAX POLAROID camera. SO fun! I like taking pics of people at parties and giving them the pic as a favor. Also makes a fun gift tag (see the video above!)

5. FOR KIDS

6. WELLNESS

  • a membership to a meditation app like Calm. I like to listen before bed.

7. TO WEAR

  • My favorite crimson-red holiday party dress I find it pretty flattering & forgiving. And warm. My mom borrowed mine to wear to a party last week and she looked great!

8. DONATION

Instead of “stuff” how about making a donation in someone’s name? Here are a few suggestions:
