Vegan “Chicken” Meatballs

It’s been a busy summer and I’ve been neglecting writing up my recipes.  That doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking or creating new recipes; I just haven’t been good about writing them up and posting them. Today that changes because I promised some people that I would get this recipe up. Meatballs. Meatballs are sooo […]

Garlicky Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread with Kale and Follow Your Heart Cheeses

Today is National Cheese Lovers Day. It’s funny, before I was vegan, I was not a big cheese lover. I loved two cheeses – mozzarella and grated parmesan. That’s it. So when I became vegan, giving up cheeses wasn’t such a big deal for me except when I made Italian food. Plus, when I became […]

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 […]

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 […]

Italian White Bean Dip and Plentils from Enjoy Life Foods

When it comes to salty, crunchy foods, I have very little willpower. You can keep your chocolate and your ice cream; just give me the chips. It’s because I have so little control over potato chips that I either try to avoid them or I make my own Homemade Baked Potato Chips. So when a crunchy […]

Vegan Potato & Spinach Cheddar Fritters with Horseradish Dipping Sauce

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t know what to make for dinner and the veggie supply was running low. You know those times – you look through the fridge and try to figure out what you can make from what you have, like it’s a basket on Chopped. I had potatoes and […]

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this Skillet Cheesy Enchilada Stew

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day of celebration and lots of good food and drinks. So I had to share this amazing dish I made. Well, it’s not really a dish – it’s an entire pot full of ooey-gooey cheesy, soy curl-y goodness. For some reason, I had cheese fondue in my mind. I’ve […]

Vegan Orange Soy Maple Sticky Tenders with Beyond Meat Homestyle Tenders

A couple of weeks ago I was reading a cooking magazine and they had an article on 25 different types of chicken wings. They all looked delicious and disturbing at the same time. Delicious because I used to LOVE eating chicken wings and disturbing because I used to LOVE eating chickens’ wings. What a difference […]

Orange Balsamic BBQ Tempeh and Cheesy Chickpea Polenta

The other night I have a craving for BBQ. Whenever I make BBQ, I want mashed potatoes on the side. But I was out of potatoes. Then I thought polenta would be good but I didn’t have any cornmeal or polenta either. 🙁 I was getting ready to think up something else for dinner when […]

Vegan Caramel Popcorn and G.H. Cretors Popped Corn Review

You know the saying on the potato chips commercial about how “you can’t eat just one”? Well, I’m sure they wrote that for me because I love salty, crunchy snacks and when I get near a bowl or bag of potato chips, it won’t last very long. My best defense is to not buy any […]

VeganMoFo #17: Potato and Onion Kugel with Sauteed Apples Done 2 Ways

Today is a bit of a departure from my VeganMoFo theme because I am not reviewing any products. However, it’s still another post about delicious vegan food with a recipe so I’m sure it counts. Rosh Hashanah is almost upon us. If you are planning a big dinner for your friends and family, you will […]

Vegan and Gluten-Free Potato Blintzes

It’s Shavout, the Jewish holiday where we commemorate receiving the Torah, and for most people who celebrate, it brings to mind dishes that focus on dairy. However, I just read an interesting article on The Jewish Daily Forward called “Want Authentic Shavout Meals? Try Fruit, Not Dairy.” The article states that dairy was not an […]

How to Make a Vegan Passover Seder Plate Plus a Recipe for Charoset

  Anyone who has been to a Passover Seder knows that the Seder Plate is the centerpiece of the table. It is rich with symbolism of the Exodus of the Hebrew slaves and is a main part of the Seder’s ceremonial rituals. But some of the items on the Seder plate are not vegan-friendly and […]

Butler Soy Curls Review and Recipes: Buffalo Soy Curls

  As my followers know, the food I thought I “couldn’t live without” was chicken. My father used to say I ate so much chicken that one day I would sprout feathers. When I gave up meat, I wasn’t sure how I was going to survive without chicken. Over the years, however, I have learned […]

Buffalo Tempeh Meatballs and Super Bowl/Puppy Bowl Party Food

  There are two things I can never get enough of: puppies and food that is Buffalo-style. On February 2nd, I can indulge in both. While most of the country will be watching something called the Super Bowl, I’ll be settling with lots of red, messy, finger-licking deliciousness while watching the Puppy Bowl. Puppy Bowl […]

If someone offered me a lifetime supply of one product, it would be an easy decision: Go Veggie! Dairy-Free Grated Parmesan. That’s the one. Go Veggie!, please deliver a case of this each month and I’ll try not to run out before the month is over. I know cheese is that thing that so many […]
