Asian Soy Curl Salad

This is my new favorite salad. If I could only ever have one kind of salad again for the rest of my life, it would be this one. First of all, it’s the prettiest salad I’ve ever made. It’s filled with all different colors from the greens, the red cabbage, the carrots, the red onions […]

Pumpkin Rotini with Mushrooms and Punk Rawk Labs Smoked Cashew Cheese

A scientist, a record store owner and a nutritionist walk into a kitchen…sounds like the beginning of a joke but instead it’s actually the beginning of a great company called Punk Rawk Labs. Punk Rawk Labs is a woman-owned, Minnesota-based company formed in 2010. It was created when one of the founders, Alissa, had a […]

Greek Lemon Soy Curls and Potatoes

Last night I was trying to think of what to make for dinner. When I can’t decide, I try to narrow it down – which ethnicity? which ingredients? comfort food or healthy? saucy or not sauce? Yesterday, I was feeling like Butler Foods soy curls but not saucy. Not a stew or soup. I wanted […]

Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Individual Spinach Artichoke Flatbread Pizza

Lately, I’ve been craving pizza. A lot. But I didn’t want to make a giant pie with yeast and kneading and the oven. I wanted pizza that was quick, easy and cooked on the stove top. And crunchy. I like my pizza crispy as opposed to chewy. That’s where flatbread pizza comes in. I’ve shared […]

Product Review: Hilary’s Eat Well

When I first read about Hilary’s Eat Well and their products, I wanted to try them so badly. The kind people at Hilary’s sent me coupons but there was no place in my town that sold their products. About a year later, they sent me more coupons (mine had expired) and two of their salad […]

Soy Curl Tortilla Soup

Every day Tom brings me in a beautiful leaf or two that he finds on his walks with Benny. It’s getting colder too and lately I’ve been craving soup. I’m loving the combination of tomatoes and […]

Vegan Treats for Dogs

There is no love like that of a dog – unconditional, loyal and completely honest. The all-encompassing way I loved my dog, Poochie, stunned and nourished me every single day and when I lost her, it felt like my heart was forever broken. When we got Benny, I honestly didn’t think I could love him […]

Why I Could Never Quit Being Vegan

  Whenever I have a vegan-versary or veggie-versary, I write an essay focusing on what veganism means to me, what struggles I work through or some other batch of feelings I need to express. July 21, 2015 marks 7 years to the day I watched “Meet Your Meat,” stopped eating meat and began my vegan […]

The Most Amazing Potato Nachos and Review of Sweet Earth Foods (Part One)

When I write recipes I don’t usually label them as “the best,” “the ultimate” or “perfect” as some people do. I’ve always felt that sounded a bit conceited and was up to the eaters to decide for themselves. But calling this recipe just “Potato Nachos” didn’t seem accurate. It needed something else. And something more […]

Vegan Buffalo BBQ Chicken

It’s summer (almost) and summer makes ones thoughts turn to all thing BBQ. Even though I make my BBQ dishes indoors, I still love when they taste spicy, smoky and decadent. I’ve made a few BBQ dishes that I’ve posted here: Balsamic BBQ Seitan and Tempeh Ribs; Baked BBQ Tofu and Tempeh and Orange Balsamic […]
