My little sister moves into college this weekend.  Being the amazing, ambitious older sister I am, I had the great idea to write her an e-book full of healthy, delicious foods she could make in a microwave (or other appliances you can have in a dorm).  And then, in order to fully show off the skills I learned in college, I procrastinated all summer long and never actually got around to doing it.  Fortunately for me, there’s no due date for nice gestures.  Instead, I’ll post the handful of recipes I have here and hopefully she’ll find enough food not to starve to death. First up, microwave nacho cheese.  I didn’t know this easy vegan nacho cheese could get any easier, but apparently it can!  Even better, you can make...

To say I was surprised by the delicious (and vegetarian) food options in Oklahoma City would be an understatement.  I usually associate the South with deep fried and all of the meat, but apparently that’s not the case We flew in after work on Thursday and immediately crashed at our Travelocity mystery hotel.  Have you tried that? I’m addicted.  I let Josh do most of the restaurant picking and he did a phenomenal job.  First up was breakfast at All About Cha on Friday.  The owner (manager?) explained to us that Cha means “tea” in a lot of languages, but Korean it just means beverage.  Needless to say, they had a killer selection of breakfast drinks!  I had an iced green tea macchiato with an apple muffin and Josh had a caramel...

Today’s guest post comes from Shelley and Gretchen at Two Healthy Kitchens. These two ladies are definitely women after my own heart. Their blog is loaded with tips on eating healthier and encouraging kids (and adults!) to eat vegetables in delicious and fun ways.  Somehow, I’ve managed to never make hummus (I just inhale the store bought varieties like it’s my job), so good thing I have these two to pick up my slack and bring this delicious sounding cannellini bean hummus! When Kelly invited us to share one of our Two Healthy Kitchens recipes, we were truly honored! We just love Kelly’s recipes – and her totally gorgeous photos! We were so flattered she chose us to guest post! But … we were also a little stymied. Hmmmm … which...

Hey everyone! I had to last minute take a little trip (ohh nooo, surprise vacation? the worst ;-)) and I’m super happy to have Abbie here filling in for me!  If you haven’t met Abbie, she’s the teenage delicious food genius over at Needs Salt.  Abbie is a total sweetheart and I’m completely jealous that she has all of these healthy eating/baking/photography/blogging skills that I don’t even really have under control in my mid-20s.  And we can especially agree on this sweet ‘n salty combo she has in her guest post today!   Hey all you awesome readers of Hidden Fruits and Veggies! I’m Abbie. I make things and write about them over at my own blog, Needs Salt. First off, I want to thank Kelly so much for having me...

I was sent a copy of Let Them Eat Kale out of the goodness of Julia’s heart.  I was under no obligation to review or host a giveaway — but aren’t you glad I am?  All opinions, as always, are my own.  You know how you try really hard to eat good-for-you foods all week? And then the weekend comes and you’re all “Eff that, I wanna swim a pool of caramel and dry off with a slice of pizza.”?  Let Them Eat Kale has been my Monday “Oh God why did I eat that??” saving grace.  Every recipe is packed full of the ultimate super food- Kale! Because the name of the book didn’t give that one away, right? Before the book even made its way to my door step,...

I really need to get back on that not-eating-everything-in-sight plan.  It was my dad’s 50th birthday on Sunday, so we had a whole weekend of celebrations.  A big party on Saturday (with so much food. so. so much food. and then cake. and ice cream. and delicious caramelly cracker things. I die) and then a Tiger’s game on Sunday at Comerica Park, followed by ALL OF THE GREEK FOOD.  Well, not all of it. I have leftovers for days.  Needless to say as I’m writing this (on Sunday night), I’m sun burned + sleepy + working hard to polish off the rest of Josh’s chocolate cake with cookie butter frosting and whiskey caramel sauce birthday cake.  I wish I could stop talking about/eating this cake.  It’s just too good for words....
