An Update and a Guest Post.

Today’s mission:  operation PACK THE CLOSET.

Seriously, WHERE did all these clothes come from?  I have my work cut out for me!

This move is starting to make me go craaaaaaaaaaaazy!

My kitchen is in a pretty sad state right now, and I feel bad that I haven’t been able to show you guys any fun recipes or cooking.  I also feel bad that I am not EATING any fun recipes or cooking!  English muffins and bell peppers are starting to get reaaaally old.

But even though I haven’t been able to show any fun food in a week or two, you guys are in luck.  The lovely Anne P. was nice enough to offer up a few of HER favorite (VEGAN!) recipes to share with my wonderful readers.  Take it away, Anne!


Hey, The Front Burner readers! My name is Anne and I write the food and fitness blog fANNEtastic food.


In the past two years, I:

  • Quit my cubicle job
  • Moved to Europe to teach English
  • Moved back to the U.S. (after an awesome 9 months teaching in Prague)
  • Completed a year’s worth of prerequisites to go back to school for a big career change

All of this culminated in moving this August from Washington D.C. (so bummed to have JUST missed Emily!) to Chapel Hill, NC to start a Masters of Public Health in Nutrition! If all goes well, in 2.5 years I will be a Registered Dietitian!

On my blog, I share a lot of healthy recipes and quick packable lunches. Since the fall is nearly upon us and work and school are ramping back up for most, I thought I would share some of my favorite quick and easy vegan dinners. Enjoy!

BBQ Chickpeas with Sweet Potatoes & Bok Choy


If you love BBQ, you will LOVE this recipe. It’s quick, easy, and delicious.

Almond Soy Sauce Baked Tofu


Seriously the easiest baked tofu you will ever make – there are only 3 ingredients!

Deconstructed Quinoa Burrito


Like a Mexican party in your mouth!

I hope you guys got some fun new ideas for quick, easy, and delicious dinners! I’m not a vegetarian myself, but I love vegetarian and vegan meals, especially when I’m in a rush – eating healthy really doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or time consuming!

Thanks again to Emily for inviting me to do a guest post and I hope you guys will come check out my blog, fANNEtastic food, for more recipes and quick meal ideas. :)


Many thanks to Anne for bringing some FOOD back to this blog.  :)  I am hungry just looking at that tofu.  I have a few exciting things planned for tomorrow.  Must take time to pamper myself and stay sane in the midst of moving chaos – stay tuned!

Anne’s recipes sound amazing!

Best of luck packing/moving lady. I totally know how you feel as we just moved this summer as well. Once you’re in VA we should definitely try to plan a meet up. :)


Lizzy @ LBBakes     at 7:33 pm

Thanks for the guest post, Anne! I’ve never really ventured down the vegan road but it interests me. :)

Good luck packing, Emily. ;)

Great recipes from Anne – everything looks I delicious!

Good luck with the closet!


Lauren     at 8:29 pm

Love this girl! :)

Good luck with the packing.


Melissa @ HerGreenLife     at 9:11 pm

Sounds like we have similar interests, Anne. I entered a dual MPH/M.S. in Nutrition program. Ended up just doing the MPH, but with some nutrition electives. Still wonder about that RD sometimes. Have fun!


Anne P     at 9:35 pm

Good luck with that closet! Having JUST done that 2.5 weeks ago… I feel your pain. I literally went through and got rid of HALF my closet. It was liberating :)

And thanks again for the guest posting opportunity!

Thank YOU for the delicious recipes!!

Hey Emily!

I was watching a rerun of Friends earlier and saw this clip. The peanut butter TOTALLY made me think of you, so I thought I would send it your way to cheer you up after a day of packing!



Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Hilarious! :) I love Joey. And peanut butter. :)

Hey Emily! I have been reading your blog for a while now…I truly enjoy it! You’ve totally got me looking BACK into culinary school. And you introduced me to the BEST RUNNING TANK EVER!! :) Anyway, packing kitchens away is so hard- eating your way through what you have just gets blah! Good luck- and stay happy!!


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Yay! So glad you like the blog :) I am also totally in love with the running tank – up to 5 now!


Maura     at 9:19 am

Mexican party in your mouth?! Sign me up- that looks delish. Good luck on packing, Emily!


Heather     at 9:22 am

R @ Learning As I Chop     at 9:32 am

I know you’re currently cursing it, but what a great closet! Mine is like 1/2 that size


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

It IS a really great closet – I will miss it!


Marci     at 10:52 am

I love when two of my favorite bloggers collide! Good luck with the packing and moving. Change is exciting. And I would die for some of my wedding cake…two years later. Was heavenly to eat after one year!

Holy clothes, Batman! I always find closets interesting, since I only at most have five t-shirts, two pairs of jeans, and a few shorts. I’ve just never been really into clothes.


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

I seriously don’t even know how they all got there. I got rid of over half and donated them to Goodwill. Funny thing is – I’m not into clothes either!


Amber K Reply:

Well, to be fair, losing over 90 pounds helped me grow out of a lot of the clothes that I had had before. I’d probably have a LOT more if it weren’t for that!
