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 […]

Baked Cauliflower “Mac” and Cheese with Peas and Review of Teese Vegan Cheddar Cheese

We all love mac and cheese but now that the weather is getting warmer and our sweaters are put away, it’s time to lighten up our usual dishes. Since cauliflower is the new kale and people are using it for everything, it only made sense to use it for a low-carb substitute for pasta. Mac […]

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 […]

Asparagus Tofu Tartines with Light Vegan Hollandaise Sauce

I’ve been a fan of Rachael Ray since before I was vegan. So much of what I know about cooking I learned from watching her. Once I became vegan, I continued to watch her shows, read her magazines and learn more. I also attempt to veganize many of her recipes. My dream, after all, is […]

Raw or Almost Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

I don’t post a lot of raw recipes. In fact, this may only be the second one in the years since this blog began. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for raw food but except for salads, I prefer my food hot.  The hotter, the better. Cheesecake, however, is one food you don’t eat hot […]

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 […]

Homemade Calzones, Easy Queso Cheese Sauce and a Review of Field Roast Cheese Slices

I’m pretty sure every vegetarian and vegan knows about Field Roast and if they don’t, they need to get acquainted with them right away! Field Roast makes grain meat and they do it exceedingly well. Field Roast was created in 1997 in Seattle when Chef David Lee combined the European tradition of sausage-making with the […]

Flourless Nut Butter Cookies and Tofu in Spicy Peanut Sauce Plus a Review of Once Again Nut Butters

I do not like peanut butter and jelly. Nope, never have, never will. It’s probably because I don’t have a sweet tooth. I do, however, love peanut butter and cream cheese. When I was in grade school, every Friday the cafeteria would be closed for the upcoming Shabbos and each classroom would get a tray […]

Product Review: Broccoleaf and a recipe for Jamaican (Ital) Soy Curls Curry with Broccoleaf

I love reviewing new vegan products and spreading the word about all the wonderful vegan items on the market. The one thing I usually don’t get to review, however, is vegetables. Well, not fresh vegetables, anyway. Most products are foods that come in jars, bags and boxes. Plus, I don’t usually think about vegetables as […]

Product Review: Chic Naturals Chickpea Snacks

There are a lot of reasons to love Hawaii – the beautiful islands, the gorgeous oceans, the friendly people and rich culture – but here is another reason: it’s where Chic Naturals is based. And that’s important because Chic Naturals makes the most amazing dry roasted chickpea snacks. I’ve written about Chic Naturals before. In […]

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 […]
