I used to be a BIG fan of Chinese take out food.  When my husband and I were first married we probably got Chinese take out at least 4 times per week.  Now it’s been many many many years since we’ve had take out but that doesn’t mean we can’t still indulge in one of my favorite meals – chow mein!  This dish has easily become a familiar family favorite.

You know as a grandmother I must provide my grandchildren with treats. I think it’s in the contract somewhere. Providing no sugar vegan treats must have been in the fine print cause I’m not sure how that slipped past me. But, I love my grandchildren and I’ll go to any length to find ways to put smiles on their faces with sweet and fun treats.

I’m a horrible procrastinator.  I’ll plan out what recipes I want to make for the week, buy all the necessary items and by the end of the week I’m left with a bunch of produce that is about to go bad because I didn’t make any of the things I planned.  That’s usually when I throw everything into a big pot, call it soup and serve it for dinner.

Can you believe that I spent the first 24 years of my life thinking that I hated avocado?!  Crazy, right?!  Luckily, one fateful night at dinner I ordered an entree that didn’t mention it contained avocado and I was too hungry to send it back so I buckled down and ate it – and thus began my love of avocado.  Living in California there is always an abundance of avocados and I’m always looking for fun new ways to add them to my favorite dishes.  

Roasted broccoli is one of my favorite side dishes.  I love how you can easily change the entire dish with just a simple sauce.  I’m a big fan of miso and I love how the sweetness of this sauce brings out the flavor of the roasted broccoli.  An easy and simple recipe with big flavor!  What more could you ask for?!
