Not only am I a full-blooded New Yorker, but I also come from a long line of pizza makers, so pizza is kind of a big deal in my life.

Also it’s basically the only thing my child eats, so.

Ever since moving out of our old neighborhood two and a half years ago we have yet to find really great classic New York pizza place. That sounds crazy being that we live in midtown Manhattan, but it’s true. A lot of times we will find a place we think is really good but then every other pizza delivery is kind of meh. It is so disheartening!!

So basically, I’ve been making my own pizza a whole lot and for the most part it’s been good, but not great.

Until now.

So it’s definitely November and I’m COMPLETELY in denial about it. There’s so much going on this month, like my sister-in-law’s bridal shower next week for which I volunteered/was asked to make a hundred cupcakes. Still haven’t chosen exactly what to make yet for that, thanks for asking. It’s going to be an interesting week. I’m probably going with the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from the Bravetart cookbook namely because they are the best, but also because they each make a batch of about 40 cupcakes. I think then half will be chocolate frosted and the other half will have salted caramel buttercream. I’m also thinking of making a batch of the maple cupcakes that are in the blog archives because everyone loves maple and they are one of my favorite cupcakes of all time!

Anyway, enough about cupcakes!! Let’s talk real food and this week’s healthy vegetarian meal plan. Here’s what we’re cooking:

  • cheesy vegan broccoli soup – basically drooling over this
  • easy vegetable teriyaki stir fry – take-out at home, yaaasssss
  • roasted sweet potato kale salad with avocado and jammy egg – so in love
  • roasted vegetable harvest salad with sesame chili sauce – make a big batch and eat ALLLLL week
  • easy parmesan pasta – total comfort food

Happy eating!

With white chocolate, chocolate chips, AND cocoa powder these double (and by double I mean triple) chocolate cookies are a chocolate lover’s dream!
double (and by double I mean TRIPLE) chocolate cookies

Obviously the day after Halloween, when you’ve just eaten ALL THE CHOCOLATE, is exactly the right time to make double (eerrr TRIPLE) chocolate cookies.

You wouldn’t want to go into chocolate withdrawal, after all. Nope, best to wean slowly.

One XXL cookie at a time.
