Pan-Fried Tofu with Zucchini, Carrot and Black Bean Sesame Noodles

Normally, I don’t make a lot of cold dishes or pasta salads but the weather has been so hot lately, it seemed like a good idea. Of course, I still have to deal with the heat in the kitchen since this is a cooked dish even if it’s served cold but at least it feels […]

Product Review: Meatless Select Fishless Tuna and a Recipe for Vegan Crabby Cakes

When I received my cans of Meatless Select Fishless Tuna from Atlantic Natural Foods, I have to admit I hesitated. Fishless tuna? It seemed strange to me and I’m not quite sure why. After all, I eat and love vegan versions of chicken, beef, sausage, and other fishy-type foods like vegan shrimp and calamari. When […]

Indian Vegetable Curry with Mung Bean Fettuccine and Explore Asian Review & Giveaway

  It used to feel that the only options one had when it came to pasta was which shape to buy – spaghetti, ziti, bowties, elbows, etc. Then when I began eating gluten-free, the number of choices I had dropped significantly – spaghetti, rotini and maybe fettuccine. But then I discovered eating other types of […]

Vegan Apple Mini-Galettes and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pie Crust Mix

  “Easy as pie.” I’ve always had issues with this saying. Tom uses it a lot and it’s become a sort of bit between us. He says something is as “easy as pie” and I reply, “Pie is not easy!” Because to me, baking is not easy. While I am not as baking-challenged as I […]

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 […]

Fruit.0: a Review, a Giveaway and a Recipe – Cashew “Chicken” and Broccoli in a Mango Pear Pineapple Sauce

  Whenever we go out for a long drive or need to run errands we know we have to bring along some snacks because it’s hard to find healthy, vegan snacks out there. Even at the college where I teach, there is little to choose from. The vending machines are filled with chips, cookies and […]

Qrunch Green Chile Burgers with Yellow Rice and Roasted Vegetable Medley Topped with Jalapeno Pepper Mayo

Over the years I have developed about a dozen vegan burger recipes – partly because I love burgers and partly because there aren’t many prepared vegan burgers that I like enough to buy. To me, most of them don’t have a lot of flavor and the texture leaves a lot to be desired. And finding […]

The Feast of the Seven Vegan Fishes

The Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American Christmas Eve tradition. It dates back to the Roman Catholic tradition of abstaining from meat and dairy on Fridays, during Lent and on the eves of certain holidays. People would instead eat fish that was usually fried in oil. Over the years, many types of fish […]

Gluten-Free Cookies For Santa: Chocolate Hazelnut Drop Cookies and Chai Spice Cookies

Did you hear the news about Santa? If the word on the strip mall circuit is correct, Santa has gone gluten-free! Apparently, all the flour from all the cookies all these years has taken a toll on his intestines. Maybe Santa’s round belly is filled with more bloating gases than jelly. I also hear that […]

Vegan Calamari in a Scampi Sauce with Peppers and Olives and Sophie’s Kitchen Review

  I came to like eating fish later in life. Other than frozen fish sticks, I just never liked eating fish. Later, however, I came to love eating shrimp, salmon, catfish, sole, and calamari. I remember the first time I ate calamari. Sitting in a restaurant, I was munching away on the fried, breaded rings, […]
