Finally! I am able to log back into Blogger. Apologies for the late posting, social media rants and otherwise all out chaos that ensued during this morning's cooking. Now back to our regularly scheduled   deliciousness.

It's Meatless Monday! I love this day. I seriously look forward to concocting new and exciting recipes that are also healthy and animal friendly. I'm making a conscious effort to eat more a more vegetarian diet. Less meat, fewer hormones, better livin. That doesn't mean the rest of my family is on the same page so you'll still get your fill of grilled steak, chicken, turkey - well, you get the idea.

For now here's a healthy vegetarian dish we can all sink our teeth into.
