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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Product Review: Hilary’s Eat Well

When I first read about Hilary’s Eat Well and their products, I wanted to try them so badly. The kind people at Hilary’s sent me coupons but there was no place in my town that sold their products. About a year later, they sent me more coupons (mine had expired) and two of their salad […]

Vegan Treats for Dogs

There is no love like that of a dog – unconditional, loyal and completely honest. The all-encompassing way I loved my dog, Poochie, stunned and nourished me every single day and when I lost her, it felt like my heart was forever broken. When we got Benny, I honestly didn’t think I could love him […]

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 […]

Product Review: The Lazy Dog Cookie Co.

We love our dogs and fur babies more than anything so it doesn’t make sense to feed them food or snacks that are anything but the best. That seems obvious yet so many dog foods and treats have questionable ingredients. The way I see it, if I wouldn’t eat it, I’m certainly not going to […]

Vegan Strawberry Cheese Blintzes with Strawberry Basil Compote and GO Veggie!® Cream Cheese

Whenever my mother made blintzes, she would make dozens…literally. She would easily make about 100 blintzes – cheese and potato – and freeze them so we could enjoy them for weeks and months to come. My favorites were the potato blintzes with mashed potatoes mixed with caramelized onions. I’ve made a vegan version of my […]
