Cannellini Cutlets

Before I was vegan, 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, you name it. Nine years ago this […]

Tarka Dal

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 […]

Super Green Rice with Veggies, Soy Curls and Dr. Mercola’s Organic Greens

A while ago, I received some really cool products from Dr. Mercola to review. You’ve probably heard of Dr. Mercola; he is the health guru and best-selling author of many books on nutrition and health. His web site is packed with articles on health, nutrition and ways we can improve our lives and health. He also […]

The Most Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara

Before I was vegan, I never tried pasta carbonara. I find that odd since it has four ingredients I loved: pasta, egg, 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 […]

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 […]

Soy Curl Tortilla Soup

It’s fall. Yay! Fall is my favorite season. The leaves are already changing colors and floating to the ground. 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 […]

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 […]
