Slice of Emma : Vegan Cauliflower Mac & Cheese

  Recipe #20: Vegan Cauliflower Mac & Cheese   There have been many adventures since my last post, my most recent adventure motivated me to cook a delicious filling dinner.  This past weekend I joined a new friend, Allyson, in Yosemite – Tuolumne where we camped, rock climbed multi pitch domes, and sunbathed yoga with one of the rangers.  I made a goal in 2019 to get better at rock climbing outdoors.

She also shares the same passion of vegetarianism and humane treatment of...

Slice of Emma : Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash Stuffing

Healthy, whole food, plant based recipes by Emma Recipe #19: Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash Stuffing   This year I wanted to create a vegan stuffing that is more delicious and exciting than the omnivore favorite.  I am looking forward to sharing a Friendsgiving in Red Rocks Las Vegas rock climbing. For many of us, traveling across the country for family so close to Christmas, is a challenge. Especially now that I have lived in a few places, I do not see friends as often as I would like. Friendsgiving has the ability to draw people you may not see as often anymore which during what is usually a stressful time of year, can be immensely cathartic. Life moves fast...

Slice of Emma : Butternut Squash, Red Lentil, and Eggplant Sambhar

Healthy, whole food, plant based recipes by Emma Recipe #18: Butternut Squash, Red Lentil, and Eggplant Sambhar   From Ecuador to Singapore over New Years, Goa India for the next New Years, and now off to Portugal to participate in Kimberly (Kimbo)’s and Laurence’s thriving farm, I have had the great pleasure of connecting with this incredible couple.  I met Laurence at a yoga retreat in Montanita Ecuador where he and Kimbo were traveling around South America.  They welcomed me into their gorgeous apartment in Singapore where we rung in the New Year bearing lion costumes on their rooftop.  Even at this time they were potting and growing lush vegetables and preparing for their next chapter in Portugal. When I learned...
