Meat Free Monday: Lime & Jalapeno Slaw

by Deena on September 3, 2012

This recipe is one of my “go-to” recipes for cookouts, clam bakes, picnics, etc… In planning my menu for the upcoming holiday weekend – I did a quick search on ERTH to get the ingredients… and to my surprise it wasn’t on there. How had I not shared this one already?? Every time I make […]


Meat Free Monday: Stuffed Zucchini

by Angela on July 9, 2012

I’m still getting my weekly veggie box from Washington’s Green Grocer and we are loving it!  It has really forced me (in a good way) to make use of vegetables more in my family’s daily menu.  One vegetable we get a lot of is zucchini and yellow squash (I guess that’s 2, isn’t it?!).  So […]


And we’re back…at least for today.  I’m trying to get back into the whole blog writing thing again.  It’s hard after all that has gone on over the past few months.  But the whole reason Deena and I started this blog was to research and share things we learn about health and fitness and disease […]


Meat Free Monday: Eggplant Parmesan

by Deena on March 12, 2012

For today’s Meat Free Monday Recipe I combined 2 different recipes I found for Eggplant Parmesan into one. I did this for 2 reasons, first I didn’t want to fry the eggplant, I wanted to bake it so that it would be healthier. And secondly I didn’t want to use a jarred tomato sauce I […]


Meat Free Monday: Mushroom Risotto

by Deena on November 14, 2011

I’ll be honest if I had know how much time and stirring was required to make risotto – I probably never would have made this dish.  Which would have been a bad call on my part because it was absolutely delicious. Even better, it was inlaws, husband, and kids approved… they all ate it with […]

Meat Free Monday: Butternut Squash Enchiladas

by Angela on October 31, 2011

This one is it….if you haven’t tried any other recipe we’ve featured, this one you must try.  Even the hubby said that it was….wait for it, wait for it….the best vegetarian recipe he’s had.  GASP!  And if you’ve been paying attention, he doesn’t like Mexican food, so the fact that this recipe is an enchilada […]


A friend of mine recently mentioned that she had made Rachel Ray’s Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage recipe and how she loved it.   Personally, I’m not a fan of pumpkin at all; well, except for my friend Leigh’s pumpkin whoopie pies, that are to die for.  Otherwise, anything pumpkin filled or flavored I’ll pass on.  […]


Meat Free Monday: Asian Coleslaw

by Angela on September 6, 2011

We’ve featured a coleslaw here before, Celeste’s Chinese Cabbage Salad.  So here comes number two.  It’s similar, but the addition of peanut butter and ginger in the dressing reminds me very much of the salad dressing at one of our favorite Japanese steakhouse and sushi restaurants.  I came across this recipe when searching for something […]


Meat Free Monday: Red Quinoa-Avocado Salad

by Angela on August 29, 2011

As some of you may have figured out, my meat-free Monday actually occurs on Sundays (or sometimes Saturdays) so I can have something to post for the blog on Mondays (guess I should call it Without Meat Weekends?  Meh.).  Anyway, my goal is to try out more recipes during the week so that I have […]


This weeks meat free dish was a hit with my in-laws and my family.  I wasn’t sure if the boys would eat the sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes – but they ate every bite.    I loved this so much that I’m thinking about putting the toppings on top of pizza crust next time.  Yum Artichoke and […]
