Is octopus trayf? The fact is yes, it is trayf. Meaning non-kosher. Câ€™nest pas kascher. Just like the little piggy, up top.

So I resort to parchment-steamed veggies. Parchment so that I can retain as much moisture as possible; and parchment so that I don't have to even wash any dishes. Ha, laziness to the max. but to my advantage!

This Angry Bird is made from Babybel Cheese, Swiss Cheese, Cheddar and nori. It's not difficult to make, but it takes time to cut all the little parts.

So, inspired by Green Light Bites I made my own zucchini pizzas. I added some bread crumbs to beef up the filling, used parmesan instead of feta because that's what I had on hand, and I threw a couple black olives on top.

So this past week I had some mushrooms at home and decided to make Mushroom Paninis for my husband and I. I took this recipe up several notches by caramelizing the onions with butter in a Cast Iron Skillet - oh yeah! Sound good, right? It was delectable!

When I say the words â€œBananas Foster French Toastâ€, what thought comes to your mind? For me itâ€™s one all encompassing word. Scrumptious.

There is nothing much simpler than roasting veggies. The caramelization brings out the sweetness in the carrots and the subtle hint of Meyer Lemons adds a really delightful flavor. I have made them several times and just had to share this recipe!

They were bananas after all. No? The only difference being that you cook them rather than eat them raw. But they are bananas just as cooking apples are apples....yes? I rest my case.

You just have to trust me on this one. It's a cookie inside of a cookie. How can it not be amazing?

Irish Potatoes, a creamy coconut candy coated in cinnamon to make them resemble potatoes. I had never heard of them before, but I fell in love with them immediately.

Butternut squash pureed into macaroni and cheese just sounds like a match made in heaven, doesnâ€™t it? It is also a fun way to sneak in another veggie.

I had never heard of them before and for some reason the thought of deep-frying avocados had never crossed my mind. Nevertheless, I was determined to recreate them...
