Roasted Veggie and Chickpea Picatta Pasta #Vegan


I'm totally into beans now. I'm not sure why I've never made them more of a centerpiece in my meals, because I've always loved the taste, texture, and the fact that they're such an inexpensive protein.

And this last week, I've been having beans just about every day, and you know what? I've felt better than I have in years. I've felt fuller, more satisfied, and had more energy... from beans? Yes, plain and simple canned beans.

Chicken Salad Lettuce Leaf Wraps with Roasted New Potatoes, Fennel and Olives #WeekdaySupper


I feel like I'm constantly learning about food and flavors and how to put them all together.  In fact, I thirst for that knowledge... which is good for me, and not so good for my husband.  As I'd channel surf back and forth between Food Network and Cooking Channel every. waking. hour. if I could.

But recently, I heard something that was one of those culinary light bulb moments.  Something that was so simple, yet so profound... that I can't seem to get it out of my mind.  Like one of those songs that get stuck in your head from the 80's.  Like Zanadu, or Whip It... or This Little Light of Mine.
