Asian Fried Farro with Roasted Eggplant and Spicy Cashew Sriracha Sauce

Asian Fried Farro with Roasted Eggplant and Spicy Cashew Sriracha Sauce |

I LOVE Fall, but what I don’t love? It gets dark so early! And the getting dark earlier makes several things a little more difficult {as I’m sure it does for everyone!}, but what I really hate is my loss of natural light to cook and photograph through the week. I typically leave work between 5:30 and 6, then get home around 6:15-6:30 {at best}, and what time has the sun been setting…6:50! I am literally racing the sun, and I continue to come up short….

Occasionally…I listen to him. By him, I mean my husband. He loves this Spicy Sriracha Cashew Sauce, and suggested {more than once} that I designate a post to it and it alone. He made the same recommendation for this dressing and the outcome was fairly successful….

Roasted BBQ Veggie and Avocado Sandwich

Roasted BBQ Veggie and Avocado Sandwich  |

So many things I want to share in this post, including an update on our week in Disney World. This place is like it’s own little city – and these trackers Magic Bands… part genius/amazing, and part creepy! I can’t say Disney would be my choice of places to vacation, but it’s been a wonderful week and I’ve enjoyed a lot of rest and down time while Josh worked the Experience Conference {why we’re here!}, and after Saturday, we can officially say we’ve done the Disney Experience. I’m sure we will have a much different perspective should we bring sweet little ones back in the future….

A Year of Recipes You Might Have Missed

A Year of Recipes You Might Have Missed |

I mentioned last week that my technical one year anniversary has come and gone and I had absolutely no idea, therefore gave no tribute to it, or reflection on this past year. I say “technical because, while my first post was dated August 19th, I didn’t actual tell anyone about the blog until late October. So, I guess since I missed doing this in August, and it’s not quite yet October, I’ll post this little tribute in September and shoot the middle….

Summer Squash and Farro Veggie Bowl

Summer Squash and Farro Veggie Bowl  |

You may not have realized I’ve been a bit MIA, but I HAVE and I’ve missed you! For the first time since I started blogging a year ago, I not only didn’t post twice last week, I didn’t even post once! The decision didn’t come easy, but the time simply wasn’t there. The realization finally set in that I can’t do everything I want to do, and that’s okay. I have to prioritize and make choices. Part of being an adult, right?! …

Raw Lemon Poppy Seed Bites + New House

Raw Lemon Poppy Seed Bites + New House |

I’m sure food-blogger coaches or growth strategists would say I’m suppose to talk about these Raw Lemon Poppy Seed Bites, preferably in the first paragraph of my text…using keywords to help the recipe pull up better in search engines. No doubt, I should tell you about their cookie dough texture and how the natural sweetness from the honey contrasts perfectly the slight tartness from the lemon zest….

Vegetarian Zucchini White Bean Burgers

Vegetarian Zucchini White Bean Burgers | LemonsandBasil.comI think if you would’ve asked me a couple of years ago if I liked zucchini I would have easily shrugged with a quick “of course, who doesn’t?” However when I look back at my recent recipes, it’s becoming apparent that I’m a little more than just fond of zucchini! Who knew zucchini was so versatile?…

Asian Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps

Asian Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps |

If you read my last post, then you know two things. First, I’m posting two cauliflower recipes in a row. Oops. Second, Josh and I found a house we really like during our rapid house hunt and were contemplating making an offer. So the update is that we now have a contract on that house {insert excited scream here}, and the home inspection is taking place today at 1pm. If all goes well we are scheduled to close in less than two weeks. Eek!…

Balsamic Maple Glazed Cauliflower and Barley

Balsamic Maple Glazed Cauliflower and Barley | LemonsandBasil.comIt’s amazing how quickly life can change. Just when you think you have a plan in place, in the blink of an eye, that plan has been thrown out the window and a new one begins to form. If you’ve followed along for a while, you likely know that Josh and I sold our house and we’re waiting on our rental….
