Cinnamon Cashew Butter

My family and especially my coworkers always laugh about my obsession with nut butters. On any given day I have an array of 3-4 different types within reach.

Smoked Tempeh and Spicy Carrot Wraps

I've had an overload of carrots lately. I don't really know how, we seem to go through them a lot but there's still a ton in the veggie drawer.

I could tell by the amount of whining I started to hear. Problem was, I had no dinner plan. ...more
