Guest post by Ben Hello my beautiful friends, are you already caught up in the frenzy of the holidays? At the SevenRoses HQ there’s a lot of baking going on and way too much cookie testing, while preparing the guest room for a friend, and a lot of DIY, glue guns, wreaths and greenery all over the place. That’s why the recipe I’m sharing with you today is perfect for this time of the year. This easy & yummy One Pan Mexican Quinoa from Ben, the creator of The Online Grill, can be made in just one pan in a short time, and that means less washing up and more...

Italian Bean Soup, because winter is not over yet

Italian Bean Soup, because winter is not over yet

This week, thanks to warmer temperatures, even if we’re still one month away from the actual arrival of Spring, I really started feeling vernal.

I don’t usually share soup recipes, even though we cook and eat at least one each week...

Easy Vegan lasagna

Easy vegan lasagna

You guys, it doesn’t get easier than this. Who doesn’t love lasagna? Lasagna is such a festive dish to me, perfect for family gatherings, holiday meals, lazy Sunday lunches and so on. My mom used to make it during the holidays, when “pasta al forno” (baked pasta) is always a pleasurable main dish, hearty, yummy, and whenever it was brought to the table you could hear many “ohhh!” “ahhh!” from everyone. Traditionally, this type of tomato-sauce based lasagna wasn’t a meat-less version, but so many versions exist even in the Italian cuisine! For example, zucchini lasagna, or mushroom lasagna are implicity meat-less. In that case you can just sub the...
