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 […]

Vegan Tofu Veggie Pot Pie with Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuit Top

Everyone is talking about EatPastry cookie dough. It comes in 7 different flavors that you can bake into goodies or eat raw. Unfortunately, I can only live vicariously because no one sells it where I live. Everyone is not so fortunate to live near a Whole Foods supermarket. The company did send me their gluten-free […]

Vegan “Chicken” Paprika over Wide Noodles and Kale

One of my favorite spices is paprika. It’s in my top 5 of herbs and spices I can’t live without, sitting alongside garlic, oregano, cumin and nutmeg. I add it to pretty much all my dishes so the idea of making an entire sauce with it is tantalizing. Chicken paprikash, also known as chicken paprikas […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Curried Pumpkin Soup with Apple Croutons and Pacific Foods Products Review

  One of my favorite things about the colder seasons is making and eating lots of soup. Nothing warms you up better, inside and out, than holding a steaming bowl in your hands and spooning delicious, savory soup into your mouth. It’s warm, cozy and comforting. With Thanksgiving coming up, my cooking turns to all […]
