Hi, I’m Sabrina from The Tomato Tart. Jerry and I have been working together in one form or another for quite a few years now and I’m happy to be guest posting on this awesome blog of his. When I went gluten free a year and a half ago, I knew I wasn’t going to […]
You’re gonna want to put your mouth on this, trust me. Yah, yah… that’s what she said; got it. But seriously, this jalapeno lemonade is spicy, tart and refreshing, making it perfect for the up and coming warm weather. Ingredients 8 Lemons 8 Limes 3 Cups Sugar 5 Cups Water 5 Jalapenos Printable View Yield: […]
I am still on my keeping it simple kick. Just like my “tomato bun” burger and my apple sandwich, this Gruyere & Caramelized Apple Waffle Sandwich is pretty simple. Using my sweet potato waffles, I made a “grilled cheese” sandwich you will LOVE. I did! Ingredients 1 sweet potato waffle 4 Ounces Gruyere, shredded 1 […]
This sweet potato waffle recipe comes to me from my good friend Dana Schnittman. If you have my cookbook, Dana is the naked chick. If you don’t have it… I bet you want it now! I’ve made a few adjustments to her original but both are amazing. Mmm! Ingredients 1 ½ Pounds Sweet Potatoes 2 Cups […]
In the tradition of simplicity, like I mentioned in my “tomato bun” burger recipe, it’s all about keeping it simple, stupid. The “stupid” being me! This apple peanut butter sandwich does just that. Also, it’s a gluten-free way to chow down a peanut butter sandwich. You could add jelly; you can add anything. This recipe […]
As much as I try to promote cooking, sometimes (most of the time)… I over-complicate things. So, in the spirit of simplicity, stick this Salt & Tomato Burger in your mouth! No, really… this recipe is an easy way to eat gluten free, whether it be your favorite burger or hot sandwich. More fun, less […]
I admit it, I really love sticking an egg in something. Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! But if you’ve seen my Avocado Fried Egg, Kale Baked Eggs or my Artichoke Baked Eggs, you know exactly what I am talking about. So an egg baked inside a muffin seems like the logical next […]
I simply love the idea of sneaking vegetables into popsicles. The idea of exploring veggies in a whole new way is sorta what this blog is about, right? So a Beet & Berries Popsicle is of no surprise, especially if you’ve had my Salted Celery Popsicle. Yum! Ingredients 1 Pound Strawberries 4 Ounces Raspberries ½ […]
Fresh asparagus, grilled, and then covered with a sweet and spicy soy sauce bursting with garlic and habanero pepper. This vegetarian recipe is the perfect way to celebrate spring. Try this sauce on egg rolls and pot stickers too!
I’ve been wanting to make a Pi pie on Pi Day for some time. I know it’s a bit cliche but this Blueberry & Thyme pie is anything but. Sweet, tart and slightly savory, this is your next favorite pie! Happy 3/14! And by the way, extra points for a pie with 30 significant digits […]
Fruit Roll-Ups were one of those child hood snacks that seemed almost… magical. Fruity and sweet, portable, and as much fun to play with as they were tasty. As an adult, they’re a bit too sugary for my liking, and the flavors are, well, too singular. Since road trip season is upon us, I wanted […]
French onion soup is a tough soup to alter. Making it vegetarian is hard, and making it vegan is even tougher. The traditional soup uses lots of butter and beef stock, creating a depth that is hard to recreate for those diets. Luckily, the world has coffee! Using one of my favorite brands (Philz Coffee, […]
One of my favorite parts about recipe developing is the chance to use ingredients in unexpected ways (or to use unexpected ingredients). Okay, okay… I really like putting myself through the Quickfire challenge, à la Top Chef. So when I hung out with my eco-hero Ed Begley, Jr. and discovered he had a natural soda […]
You may or may not know, but I am working on a new cookbook. One that involves cooking with coffee. Well, I’ve been testing out this Quinoa & Coffee Chili recipe for a while now and one can only eat so much chili, ya know? So I had to do something else with it. Skillet […]
While the flavors required to make an amazing chili are complex, the recipe itself only has one simple rule. If you don’t cry while making it or sweat while eating it, you’re doing it wrong! This quinoa and coffee chili does both. Oh, and you’ll be surprised to find out that it is vegan. Ingredients […]
I doubt there is anything more elegant than a poached pear. I just love them because, well, most fruit-based desserts are more everything else other than fruit, such as pies or cobbler (not that I don’t indulge in all that butter and sugar). But poached pears are about pears, plain and simple. I poached these […]
What if you never had to buy salad fixings again. You’ll get pretty darn close using this healthy recipe. Made using fresh organic vegetables, these ingredients can easily regrow themselves with no degree from Hogwarts required. It’s that simple! Ingredients 1 head of romain lettuce, chopped 1 celery ribs, sliced 1 green onion, sliced with […]
I am always baffled by dressing recipes that used dried ingredients. It seems to me, the whole point of making your own dressing is for, well… freshness. This Greek yogurt ranch dressing is just that! The yogurt brings a certain life to traditional ranch dressing. Plus this stuff has no MSG like the store-bought kind. […]
I wanted to create a churro that had a wee bit more to offer. Not only does this churro come with fresh pumpkin but it is also vegan. It’s so flavorful and amazing, it needed more than just sugar and cinnamon. So I covered mine in warm bourbon caramel. Yum!
I was talking with my good friend Ariel over at Whole Foods about New Year’s Eve, and how much fun it would be to toast with a champagne popsicle to ring in the new year. What a swell idea! I been wanting to put a boozy spin on my now famous Pomegranate & Limeade Popsicle, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
