Slow Cooker Lentil and Quinoa Tacos

When having large parties, I want all the food to be done and taken care of so I don't have to worry about a thing when people are here. Nothing is worse then doing a million dishes when I want to be relaxing with my guests. Last weekend, it was Simon's baptism.

Spicy Red Bell Pepper Hummus

Football season has officially begun and it’s game day! My parents are fortunate enough to have purchased 49er season tickets to the new Levi’s Stadium. And today is the third preseason game at the new stadium in Santa Clara. My sister, her boyfriend, and a friend of mine cannot begin to express how excited we are to go! As a young child (back in the days of Joe Montana and Jerry Rice) I can remember going to Candlestick for games with the whole family....more

Honey Ginger Tofu Veggie Bowls

Let's face it - tofu kind of sucks. It's flavorless and squishy, and not in the fun way that babies are squishy. But once in a while I get tired of cooking and eating meat and buy some tofu, much to Aldo's dislike.My rule is this - if I'm making tofu, it has to be accompanied by a really good sauce....more
