Summer Pasta with Tomatoes, Garlic, and Basil

This is a wonderful way to use those beautiful, fresh summer tomatoes that are just bursting with flavor. (And it's so simple, it's more a process than a recipe!) Don't let the amount of garlic worry you - it mellows as it cooks.

Kale with Tahini Garlic Dressing

This dish is similar to the kale that you find on the cold bar at Whole Foods, and it was inspired by a recipe on  eatingbirdfood.com . I just increased some of the amounts and changed some of the proportions of the dressing ingredients a bit for a saucier dish...those who know me know IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SAUCE (or dressing) - I am the sauce QUEEN!

Everyday Essentials: DIY Razor Relief Potion

Summer is still in full swing, and that means a lot of things - including sun, sand, surf, swimwear...and SHAVING. It's no fun, but we have to do it (or risk being ridiculed at the beach, lol). Razors may be inevitable, but razor burn is not. This easy Razor Relief Potion will soothe even the most sensitive skin and make razor burn a thing of the past.

Mediterranean Tofu Scramble

Breakfast used to be my favorite meal - I loved eggs, but it was never really about the eggs. It was about what I put on or in them! I usually have a smoothie for breakfast these days, but I'll splurge on the weekends and make something like this scramble. I enjoy it with toast and Nutritional Yeast Cheesy Sauce . (Like I said - it's all about the sauce!) I sometimes double this recipe for a big batch because the leftovers reheat well and are excellent in tortillas or taco shells for a quick and easy hot breakfast.
