Cannellini Cutlets

איידער איך איז געווען וועגאַן, one of my favorite foods was chicken cutlets. My mother made them all the time and later, when I was doing the cooking, I made them all the time. I loved them plain, on top of a salad, in a sandwich, turned into parmigiana, איר נאָמען עס. Nine years ago this […]

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a new recipe. My computer is STILL in the shop and I’m using their loaner. But I’m done letting that stop me – that and being insanely busy with our shop (Woodstock Reveries). So here’s a new recipe for a dish I’ve been […]

The Best Vegan Chicken Burgers Ever!

One of my favorite fast-food things to eat in my pre-vegan era – I guess that would be like 2004 B.V. – was chicken burgers. I would go to Wendy’s and get their chicken sandwich with mayo, lettuce and tomato. Not surprising since my favorite food was chicken and fried chicken cutlets were a staple. […]

Mushroom Paprikash with Mashed Potatoes and Crispy Greens

Paprika is one of my favorite spices; if I ever run out, I get really upset. Paprika adds heat and warmth without being spicy and I put it in most of my dishes. Paprika is used a lot in Hungarian cuisine and in fact, paprikash is a dish where the sauce is made from paprika. […]

The Most Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara

איידער איך איז געווען וועגאַן, I never tried pasta carbonara. I find that odd since it has four ingredients I loved: מאַקאַראָנען, יי, bacon and cheese. But somehow this dish fell under my radar. I know about it mostly from watching cooking shows on TV. It’s Rachael Ray’s husband’s favorite dish, the first dish she ever […]
