Fluffy Biscuit Topped Veg Pot Pie {plus related recipe}

Now that the holidays are over (I hope everyone had a good time) and things have settled down a little, I decided I wanted a simple, tasty, warm meal.

Tempeh ‘chicken’ Salad

I decided to recreate one of my old favorites in a simple way. The only thing you change is the chicken ingredient, the rest is the same. So quick, so convenient, so healthy and so good.

I indulged in all of the dishes yesterday and they were awesome. Even more awesome than I had planned. I spent around two weeks tweaking and buying fresh ingredients. At the end I wish I could have shared it with my family, but unfortunately a snow storm hit, so maybe next year. I hope everyone here had a good holiday and good food ~

Simple Vegetable Rice Pilaf

I have made this rice pilaf several times, and every time I have paired it with something different. It is great by itself, with beans on top, or even along side some BBQ seitan. I love it because 1) it automatically stretches any meal to save some money and 2) it has vegetables scattered throughout.
