I just wanted to take a moment to say Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! I’ll be celebrating by spending the day with the little man who made me a proud mommy! Just in case you had forgotten, here are some sweet treats you still have time to make for the mother…

A Vegan Easter Surprise

A Vegan Easter Surprise

Hello, my friends! Thank you so much for all your well wishes. I’ve been feeling a lot better, still not perfect, but I’m seeing the surgeon every three days so he can keep an eye on my sockets. Phew, I’m sure glad I don’t have to do all that ever again! While I was still…

Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts With A Heart

January 31, 2011

Corny title, I know, but it works… Oh hey, welcome back, me. Can you believe it’s already the last day of January?! I took some much needed time to get our family moved and settled in, but I’m so excited to be back in front of the computer screen. Well, it doesn’t sound exciting when…

Match Vegan Roast And Gardein Turk’y

December 14, 2010

Not long ago, if you wanted to buy a vegan roast, your options were pretty much Tofurky or Tofurky.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love Tofurky roast, but since variety is the spice of life and we’d hate for people to use up all their best Tofurky jokes prematurely (Okay, maybe demand has something…

Vegan Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Pecan Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes

December 9, 2010

Christmas is creeping up quickly, so I wanted to share a few of the simplest recipes from my vegan Christmas menu.  When it comes to the cranberry sauce, many people love the orange cranberry flavor combination, and that’s what I made last year for the masses, but I much prefer the plain cranberry, sugar, water…

Vegan Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas

December 6, 2010

I’m not sure why, but the stockings were always my favorite part of Christmas.  Maybe it’s because I usually knew what I was getting, but the stocking was a complete surprise, or perhaps I just have an affinity for mini goodies, but either way, I looked forward to dumping out that sock of treasures!  If…

Vegan Christmas Menu

November 30, 2010

Every year, my grandma pays for the ingredients to whip up a family Christmas feast, and I do the actual whipping up.  Preparing a huge meal without the grocery bill?  I’ll take it!  Since she likes to know her grocery list and budget early, I usually have to pick out the vegan Christmas menu before…

A Second Vegan Thanksgiving

November 29, 2010

Okay, I haven’t actually posted about the first yet, but here comes the second.  Thursday I prepared a nice little vegan Thanksgiving at our home.  Saturday, however, my we visited my mom’s for a family-style Thanksgiving feast.  I was so excited to visit, I haven’t seen my family in a couple of months, and I…

Happy Vegan Thanksgiving!

November 25, 2010

May your day be filled with loving friends and family, plentiful food and beverage, and thoughtful conversation and laughter.  I hope you take the time to remember what you’re thankful for, because as many times as we say it this season, we are still forgetting to actually do it.  Observe a forgotten tradition.  Start a…

Vegan Portobello Mozzarella Sandwich and September Thanksgiving

September 10, 2010

A good portobello sandwich is a beautiful thing, and I just happened to have a few portobellos hanging out in my fridge for yesterday’s lunch.  I started by spritzing my mushrooms with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, sprinkling with sea salt, black pepper, and basil, and roasting at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.  While my…
