Maddox Lane’s Vegan Spinach Mushroom Lasagna

This recipe is one I love making for my private chef clients. Once you get the steps down, it becomes fairly easy to make. I’m a big fan of the Miyokos and Kite Hill brands, so you can use either for the “cheese” blend. Nothing annoys me more than a long recipe intro, so I […]

My Go-To Sauce/Dressing/Marinade

This is a one and done type of recipe. Need a marinade for poultry? Use this. Need a dressing that goes with everything? Use this. Need a sauce for grilled seafood,. veggies, and more? Use this. I make it in a large batch and keep in the fridge for the week. This is an easy one to modify to your liking too!

Passover 2020 Delivered

I spent Passover the past seven years in Los Angeles preparing the most special meals for friends and private chef clients and I LOVED it. I love the process of making the holidays special of making homemade chicken broth and rolling matzo balls (can’t forget to add a splash of soda water!), of taking careful […]

A few of my favorite cooking essentials…

I love sharing my passion for good ingredients and telling everyone I know about the products I love to use. It’s true that when it comes to making great food, it’s simply about using the best ingredients, but it’s also about being smart in sourcing them. Here are a few of my favorite kitchen essentials, […]

Smokey Vegan Quinoa & Chickpea Burger

If you’re looking for meal prep recipes, this one a go-to for me. I make a batch and freeze half. I definitely wanted to make the smoked flavor standout, because that’s what I love about a great burger, but I also wanted to make sure the bean and vegetable components were apparent – because I’m […]

Red Quinoa Turkey Chili

Two things I love; food in batches, soups/stews. This recipe has them both PLUS is nutritionally dense and absolutely delicious. I’ve been living off of it this week, topping with giant dollops of Skyr (or greek yogurt) and lots of green onions. Reminds me of home and mom’s food…love, love! Serves: 6 Ingredients:2 T. olive […]

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Red Quinoa & Dill Lime Shrimp

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this is a fairly simple recipe that works for weeknight dinner quite well. You can prepare the sweet potatoes in advance to save time. Make extra salad for leftovers the next day (it’s delicious!). If you want a vegetarian option, leave off the shrimp and top with white […]

Green Curry Halibut with Shallot

I always said I would never create a recipe type blog because I hate following recipes and I hate writing them even more. They say, “Never say never“, and well…here we are. Until I can start videoing my recipes for the site (those are coming soon), I still want to share some personal favorites with […]

Let’s Talk…Plant-Based Diets, the Mediterranean Diet, and “Blue Zones”

When I say that Maddox Lane focuses on Plant-Based, Mediterranean, and “Blue Zone” based foods, it’s an easy way to describe the foods I’m great at making and love to prepare. This varied way of eating leaves me feeling my absolute best. However, there is NO NEED to label yourself as “plant-based” or whatever other […]
