One of my followers pointed out that the Ziggy Marley web site where the recipes for my Jamaican Vegan Feast were posted doesn’t seem to be active. She asked if I could post those recipes right here on The “V” Word and I said you bet! My review for Ziggy Marley Organics was written back […]

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 […]

Ooh La La Gluten-Free French Bread

It’s a little early for New Year’s resolutions but here is one of mine: I want to learn to bake! Aaack! I get nervous just thinking about it – the measuring, the need to be precise, the pounds of flour making my clothes look like I was caught in an avalanche and the science experiments […]

Sauteed Delicata Squash Rings

Last post I wrote about stuffing squash. This time I’m showing off the prettier side of squash. Delicata squash is a long winter squash that is usually yellow and/or green on the outside and yellow or orange on the inside. You don’t have to peel it which is a big plus in my book. Simply […]
