New England Cranberry Sauce

This is my favorite cranberry sauce - and it's not just for Thanksgiving! This is super easy to make and looks gorgeous on the table throughout the fall and winter months. Here's what I LOVE about it: ~ simple and fast to make ~ contains only five ingredients ~ flavorful ~ not-too-sweet and not-too-tart ~ stunningly beautiful ~ good source of vitamin C and fiber per cup ~ LOTS of ways to use it Let's make this now, shall we?! For about two cups, you will need: PRINT HERE. 1 bag fresh or frozen cranberries, 12 oz 1 orange, zest and juice 1/4 cup apple cider, local if possible 2 cinnamon sticks 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, or a little more depending on your taste (I p

A Vegan Thanksgiving - Part I ~ Aperitifs, Soups, Salads, Small Bites & Desserts

Whether you're cooking up your first vegan Thanksgiving or joining someone else's, you will find an array of crowd-pleasing options here from which to choose. From appetizer's to cocktails, I've gotchya covered! When a special meal is not centered around a large meat dish, I find there are more options on how the meal can be served. You might enjoy buffet style, plated courses, or many small portions served tapas-style. The selections below can easily fit into any service style you choose.

Teriyaki Papaya Kebabs

These are outstanding - hands down! If you love teriyaki glazed wild salmon and are looking for a plant-based alternative that doesn't require a science lab, THIS is it. You can stop searching. Is it an exact replica of salmon, no. Nor is it intended to be. However, it is a whole food that mimics the color, soft texture and flavor of teriyaki wild salmon without being "fishy". Even cooler, is the outer "skin" that develops during the low temperature cooking process. The end result? You be the judge! This dish was inspired by Alissa Cohen's Staranise Papaya Steak recipe in her book Raw Food for Everyone. In April, 2017 I had the pleasure of attending Alissa's Level 3 Raw Food Teacher Training

Double Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chocolate pudding so good for you, you can eat it for breakfast! And that's exactly what I did. An intense chocolate craving struck me last night... one that wasn't going to abate without satisfaction. After searching for any forgotten stashes of Green & Black's Organic Dark Chocolate (70% is my favorite, but I keep 85% on hand too for serious occasions!), I found a tiny square folded into a tattered wrapper in the bottom of my purse. I unwrapped it. No visible signs of abuse. I sniffed it just to be sure. Smelled perfect. I popped it into my mouth knowing this was just a temporary solution. Then I remembered the chocolate almond milk in the fridge (a rare treat) and the chia seeds... Chia s

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!
