Deviled Potatoes

 My friend Lena made these for my baby shower back in June, and I've been craving them again ever since.  And I actually found time to make them this weekend in time for the "Vegan Viewing Party" with friends on Saturday night to watch one of our favorite shows.

They are pretty easy to make.  I just followed this recipe from Post Punk Kitchen and they were Ah-mazing!  This is a new classic in my repertoire from now on.

Amazing Kale Salad

I am obsessed with this salad.  I made it four times in one week, that's how much I love it.

When Megan was staying with us to help watch the baby when I went back to work, she made this salad and I loved it so much I apparently couldn't get enough of it.

All the ingredients are from Trader Joe's:

French Lentils
Organic Kale
Grape tomatoes
Fresh squeezed lemon juice
Green salsa
Quinoa and Black Bean tortilla chips.

Classic Favorite Mac and Cheese

The last post was about how I've been MIA due to just having a baby and that I don't have time to cook any fun recipes.  Well, that is still true, but even if I do have time to cook, I usually don't have time to write about it. 

I do want to mention that I managed to find some time to make my classic standby favorite -- Mac  and Cheese.  I used my original recipe from way back and it was wonderful.  I should note that I increased the alternative milk and Daiya cheese to about two cups each, instead of one cup.  The baby was taking a really long nap that afternoon and I was excited to get back into the kitchen for awhile.

Here's the original posting of this dish. 

Here's the proof that I cooked it recently:
