I could eat an entire, massive head of kale this way... #dairyfree#glutenfree#organic
A few of my colleagues had told me about about this fusion Thai/Vietnamese restaurant. I finally tried it today and I see what the hype is about! I ordered the spicy fried rice with shrimp and the basil spring rolls as my appetizer! Not only was it visually appealing but the aromatics and flavor were spot on! The veggies were perfectly al dente, shrimp was cooked perfectly, and every bite was full of flavor, and fresh! Thai cuisine is one of my favorites so this will become one of my new lunch spots! I can’t wait to try the other dishes! Truly a hidden gem! 🌶 😋

I am so lucky to live walking distance from this amazing neighborhood restaurant. Osae Sushi Ramen Bistro is on the east side of Colorado Springs on Palmer Park and Peterson and is worth a trip if you don’t live over here. Their wontons are hand made and PERFECT, and their calamari (right) is hand breaded and SO flavorful... check out those bell peppers, onions, and chili flakes! Mmmmm. 🤤 Up front in the photo on the left, you’ll see the Stir Fry Udon Bowls, which have chicken, shrimp, beef, bell peppers, bean sprouts, onions, scallions, and tasty little seaweed strips all piled on top of stir fried udon noodles. God, it’s good. They also have badass sushi, totally worth checking out, get the Osae Roll! 😍 Next time you have a hankering for ramen, sushi, a noodle bowl, wontons, or fried calamari (ESPECIALLY the calamari!), come to Osae. I’ll meet you there. 😘 Shout our to @aprilmayjune_25 for picking up this awesome meal, and for bringing plenty of wine to go with it. 😍🥰 Sharing some awesome food and catching up with a friend is my favorite way to spend a random weeknight. [[💰Now through December 31st, get a $10 gift card for every $50 gift card you buy at Osae!💰]]
This soup looks UGLY, but it was SO good, especially on such a cold day.
I love to throw soups together with whatever I’m in the mood for. I’ll try and remember what I put in this yesterday. The photo isn’t appetizing but don’t let that stop you from trying out this “recipe.” Ingredients:
One yellow onion, chopped
6 russet potatoes, chopped
2-3 boxes veggie stock (low sodium is best)
1/2 Tbs vegan butter or oil (I try to cook without any kind of oil most of the time but I used a small amount in this large batch of soup.)
1/4 cup wheat flour (or any flour would work)
1 1/2 cups black beans (about one can. Mine were precooked and in my freezer because I like to batch cook my own without any salt)
1 cup frozen corn
1 1/2 cups couscous
4 cups nut milk
One can light coconut milk
Seasonings (the part where measuring gets really iffy)
These are all approximate since I taste and sprinkle as I go.
2 Tbs dried sage (I have some home grown from a friend that’s so yummy!) 1 Tbs of sea salt or Real Salt
2-3 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 Tbs garlic powder (fresh garlic would be yummy if cooked along with onions)
2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp habanero/hot sauce
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 tsp no salt seasoning from Costco
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dry mustard
2 whole bay leaves
A few of the leafy tops of celery (I freeze mine and save them to throw in soup or make my own veggie stock.)
I would have put a Tbs or more of coriander (it’s my favorite spice, next to curry) but I’m out!
2 Tbs natural maple syrup
Heat about 1/4 cup of the veggie stock in your large pot, then add the onions and cook for a few minutes. Add potatoes and some of your dry seasonings and keep cooking until potatoes are almost soft. You’ll need to keep an eye on this, stir continually, and add a couple Tbs of the veggie stock at a time so your onions and potatoes don’t burn. (This is called dry sauté.) I got distracted by the craziness of my house and that’s why I threw in a small spat of butter to so I could step away from the stove for a minute. (Continued in comments)
Homemade Dried Cranberries, while tedious, are amazing 🤩🤩🤩
Due to accidentally buying cranberries instead of cherries for the pie my grandma and I bake 🤦♀️ I was left with 2 bags of these beautiful things.
Needless to say, I figured it out and WHALA, we have dried cranberries 😊
Preheat oven to 225. Cut cranberries in 1/2, mix in 1/4 c grade a maple syrup, and place on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for aout 2 to 3 hours, or until cranberries appear dries.
Let sit for a day, then enjoy 🤗👍🔥
The more these sit, the more amazing they become. Add them to cookies bread, have as a snack, etc!
