easy colorful fajitas

I broke my veggie mandolin slicer about a year ago and my cooking has not been the same. I used to slice up anything and everything really quickly and with ease. I do not have serious knife skills.. or even very basic ones for that matter so no mandolin made me extra lazy in the kitchen. In comes Fresh and Easy. I feel like their infomercial now. I really couldn’t stand them when they first opened here because my first experience there I was confused and they didn’t have epsom salts. :c) All of my friends kept raving about them...

‘sausage’ and peppers

‘sausage’ and peppers

This meal cooks in less than five minutes and is deeeelicious! Really, this is my excuse to eat a heap of sauerkraut and I do so with glee. Despite being absolutely tasty it comes packed with protein, vitamins from the peppers, expectorant powers of onion, and all of nutrients of cabbage plus the fermenty, digestion boosting, healthiness that sauerkraut is naturally equipped with. Sauerkraut is a power-food renowned across the world, even its juice is used medicinally in Chinese Medicine. Read more about how awesome sauerkraut is here or...

vegan stuff I love: Pizza People

Pizza People Mobile Food Truck, Phoenix, Arizona 85014(480) 326-8542 How do I love Pizza People? Let me count the ways! Vegan cheese on request! They use Daiya – my favorite – which is soy free and gluten free. Gluten-free crust on request! Popeye Pizza (fresh basil, spinach, and grape tomatoes) Fun Guy Pizza (mushrooms and truffle oil)  Truly exceptional glutenous crust, while the GF is tasty and I am grateful they carry it, their regular crust is just SO GOOD. Deliciously simple sauce. I believe it is just crushed tomatoes and...

comfort food

There is nothing clever or unique about this suggested meal. It is the EASIEST thing and what James and I seem to crave the most. You get everything you need, veggies, protein, grains. It takes minutes to prepare and it is comfort on a plate. That said, there is nothing to scoff at here. Simplicity and convenience is nothing to look down your nose at. Who doesn’t work hard all day and want something easy and tasty at the end of the day, right? So! I give you my favorite comfort meal. What is yours? sketti comfort food 1 package rice...

vegan stuff I love: Nami

Nami 2014 N. 7th Street, Phoenix, AZ. 602 258-NAMI (6264) Nami is my go-to place for vegan ice cream! My favorite fluctuates between strawberry-banana and peanut butter, pretzel, banana. Mmmm. They have a zillion delicious flavors though. It is like a vegan Dairy Queen – choose your toppings and they mix it up with vegan soft serve, or tsoft tserve as they like to call  it. I might also note that they are so ingrained in my psyche that when I am teaching my geology classes I have to fight to not say tsoynami instead of tsUnami! *shakes...

Tracy Talk Thai Curry

We are fortunate to live near many delicious Thai restaurants. I love Thai-E-San, Thai Rama, and Thai Basil but sometimes it is more cost effective and relaxing to stay home and have a home cooked curry. There is something magical about the combination of flavors. Spicy, sweet, savory – coconut with peanut, come on! So good! I especially love making curry when James or I are coming down with something as the herbs and spices used are wonderful expectorants and help the body work its way through a fever so I think of it like homemade...

hearty camp stew

I was fortunate enough to go to the Traditions in Western Herbalism Conference at Mormon Lake, AZ recently. I was equipped with my propane camp stove and camp kitchenware and a cooler full of goodies. It was a busy conference with classes scheduled morning to night so I didn’t have much time to cook, though it is one of my favorite activities while camping typically. This time I needed something fairly speedy so I went the most convenient route I could and used some prepackaged goodies to speed it along. Not a bad idea for us working...
