Just Fine and Dandies Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Just Fine and Dandies Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Actually, these aren’t “just fine”, they’re awesome, but I was trying to be clever with the title there… I don’t remember rice crispy treats being my childhood favorite; I think I was more of a cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie kind of kid. But I’m definitely a crispy treat convert. When I first moved from…

Grilled Vegan Portobello Steaks

Grilling season is upon us! To be honest, we don’t even own a grill, but I love using my cast iron grill pan with summer vegetables to get similar texture, flavor, and markings. Of all of the gorgeous summer foods perfect for grilling, portobellos are my favorite. Because of their tender, juicy texture and mild…

Vegan Buddha Bowl

Vegan Buddha Bowl

Lately, I’ve been such a hummus junky. I’m constantly dipping raw vegetables, especially carrots and cucumbers, as a snack or small meal. I’ve even found that if I’m craving something sweet, hummus and carrots does the trick. I know hummus is hardly a sweet treat, but for some reason, it’s been working for me as…

Raw Vegan Broccoli In Cheese Sauce

Last week, a new friend contacted me asking if I knew of any vegan caterers in the area, and if not, would I be interested. She was looking for someone to make a staff meal for 14, because with one vegan and one vegetarian to accommodate, she decided to go all-vegan. Did I mention I…

Alive in 5 Raw Mind-Blowing Vegan Dressing

After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr, I became more enthusiastic about raw foods. And while I know how to make the raw food basics, I wanted to get myself into a raw food cookbook or two to see what those creative raw food authors had come up with. Now, my first instinct was…

Vegan Overnight Oats

Making warm, berry and syrup-loaded waffles before bed and expecting to wake up to a delicious ready-to-go breakfast probably wouldn’t go as planned, and most convenience grab-and-run breakfast products are loaded with refined sugars, artificial colors and flavors, and other undesirable hidden ingredients. If you’re not a morning person, and I know I’m not, having…

Southwestern Vegan Mac And Teese

Last week, on a particularly less-than-perfect day, I received a nice little package from Chicago Soy Dairy with 2 flavors of their well-known vegan cheese, Teese, and a package of my favorite vegan marshmallows, Dandies. It’s amazing what a pick-me-up getting a package can be! As soon as I saw the tube of creamy cheddar…

Vegan Rosemary Chick’n With Roasted Potatoes

I had my wisdom teeth drilled out on Monday and it’s been a much slower recovery than I was expecting. I still look like a greedy chipmunk, and I’m not sure if I have dry sockets, but the pain gets pretty intense. Plus, my stomach didn’t much agree with the medications I was given, so…

Vegan Coconut Curry in a Hurry

Vegan Coconut Curry in a Hurry

The last few times I’ve needed to get a meal on the table in a hurry, this has been the recipe I’ve made. I love that it’s pretty much a throw-it-all-in-the-pan-and-presto meal, but is still super delicious and fairly healthy. A big nod goes to Vegan Salt for introducing me to coconut curry. Hers was…

Vegan Tempeh Strips in Peanut Sauce

First, I want to say thank you so much for all your sweet comments on yesterday’s post! I get a lot of questions from new (or newish) vegans who feel like they’re torn between their beliefs and showing their guests a good time with amazing (or fun in the case of a toddler party) food….
