Chopped Kale Salad with Smashed Chickpeas & Avocado

Chopped Kale Salad with Smashed Chickpeas & Avocado.  This salad requires no cooking and is the perfect alternative to the usual taco salad! {gluten free, vegan}

Sometimes the best recipes are unplanned.  I have a big book where I write down all my recipe ideas, some get made right away and some are still sitting there from last summer.  When I’m going to cook something for the blog I usually open it up, pick something out, and then it ends up on here a few days later!  But, other times I’m hungry, need to eat lunch, and throw together a meal with whatever I have lying around the house.

So, I normally try to publish two posts per week, but last week I kinda dropped the ball on that.  I do have an excuse though, one word: Netflix.  Two more words: Breaking Bad.  We are probably the last people on earth to start watching that show but better late than never, right?!

Tortilla Chip Crusted Tofu Tacos with Mango Salsa

Tortilla Chip Crusted Tofu Tacos with Mango Salsa. The perfect vegetarian tacos for your next taco night! {gluten free, vegan}

This post is sponsored by Way Better Snacks, but as always, all opinions are my own!  Thank you so much for supporting the brands that support me :)

Tacos and tortilla chips, tortilla chips and tacos, they go together like rainstorms and movies!  We are in the midst of monsoon season here in Arizona and we’ve been getting so many dark and thundery rain storms.  This is one of my favorite parts of a desert summer!  But, what I don’t like is when I’m stuck at work all day and it is thundering and pouring rain all day long.  It just seems like such a waste of a thunderstorm when I can’t be at home in my pajamas under a warm blanket watching a movie.

Chilled Cherry Tomato Soup

Chilled Cherry Tomato Soup!  All your favorite summer flavors in one bowl!  This chilled soup is the perfect way to keep cool this summer!

A big bowl of piping hot soup probably isn’t the first thing that pops in your head when you think of Summer, so instead we are eating a big bowl of chilled soup because we need to get our soup fix even though it is 100 degrees outside!  This soup does require the turning on of the oven, but only for a few minutes and it is totally worth it!

Quinoa and Chickpea Stuffed Tomatoes

Quinoa and Chickpea Stuffed Tomatoes-0552

Can you believe that it is already July?!  Craziness!  But truthfully, I’m already counting down the days until fall.  It is so hot here and for some awesome reason the air conditioner works perfectly in every single room of the house except for the bedroom.  I also have a weird thing where I can’t sleep very well unless I have a heavy blanket on me, so I’ve been sweating profusely under my big down blanket every night for the past few weeks.
