Are you a fan of seaweed snacks? You know, those flat sheets you buy in little packs that you can much like chips, or wrap pre-cooked rice in and snack away on. This past school year, these snacks were one of the few items that the kids at my Grandson’s pre-school were allowed to bring […]

Ok, so first off, I need to mention that I was not in any way asked to write this post. In fact, I asked DNA Skincare if it was okay if I shared my love of their products on my blog. So, you can be sure that I was not in any way motivated to […]

Meatless Monday – Martha Style

I found this recipe in the April edition of Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine. It appears there (and on her website) almost exactly as I post it below – the one exception is that I’ve “veganized” it by using vegan parmesan cheese. This recipe had me at “one-pan”….well, and oreccehiette and probably olives too! Doesn’t it just look […]

I LOVE lentils! There, I’ve said it. It’s true, I seriously could live on them! Yellow, red, green, brown…doesn’t matter, I LOVE them all! And now I have a simple standard recipe I make more than once a week – in my new PRESSURE COOKER! First, the pressure cooker story…. During the day, at work, […]

Roasted Squash and Mushroom Pasta

We all know how much I LOVE roasted vegetables…so, when I heard about this Roasted Squash and Mushroom Pasta recipe in the December issue of Martha Stewart Living Everyday Food pullout, I just had to try it! Oh my goodness, I was NOT disappointed! The sweet roasted flavor of the butternut squash went so well […]

Meatless Monday – Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Though I have started writing a post about my blogging “pause” and the reasons, etc., it just seems like a lot more fun to come back with a tasty recipe! AND it’s Meatless Monday, so all the more better to begin this way! I haven’t baked in a while (see blogging is not the only […]

Homestyle Breakfast

Some days, we really keep eating simple around our house…especially breakfast. Having tasty items available from the garden helps a lot, too. One of Pop’s (my hubby) favorite breakfasts are what he calls “Homestyle Breakfasts”. This basically means something hot, fresh, quick and tasty. For this breakfast, I simply added some coconut oil to a […]

Look at this delicious – and easy to prepare – rice dish I recently found at Costco! It’s made my Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods, is vegan, organic and, most importantly, is DELICIOUS!! Most evenings, by the time I get home from work and working out, all I want are easy dishes to prepare for dinner. […]

Vegan Lasagna (with Tofu)

Happy Meatless Monday! Happy Vegan MoFo 2013! Just happy HAPPY! Today I want to share the vegan lasagna recipe (well, kinda a recipe) that I made last weekend. When I say “kinda” a recipe it’s because most of the time I start with a recipe, but almost always I end up improvising due to a […]

In following with my Vegan MoFo 2013 vegan shares…here’s my first office lunch this month. All the standards here – variants are usually what I add to the dish. Today though, I kept it super simple.

This past weekend (after another fun bike ride), Pops and I tried a “new” (to us) vegan restaurant in Mountain View, CA called Garden Fresh.

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day everyone! Aaahh how nice to have an extra “weekend” day. Today we’re having the kids over later for dinner and I’m making a vegan lasagna (which I will share photos and details of later). I used to make lasagna a lot, but haven’t in a while and this time instead of hunting […]

Wheat Germ….we’ve all heard of it, right? We kinda know it’s something that’s good for us – well, at least I kinda did. Then, I was sent a coupon for a container of Kretschmer Wheat Germ and found out that wheat germ is awesome and like the Original SUPERFOOD. Technically speaking, wheat germ is the […]

Vegan Vegetable Enchiladas

On an absolute whim, I decided I would make some Vegan Vegetable Enchiladas. I had tortillas, lots of vegetables and time – so what did I have to lose…well, except that I’d never made them before and an enchilada sauce seemed intimidating to me! The sauce was truly the part of the dish that has […]

Nasoya & Veggie Dip

I’m pretty confident that if you’ve been living a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, you’ve seen Nasoya products where you buy groceries – and you’ve probably eaten their tofu, too. To help me celebrate an “Eggless Easter” this year, the lovely people at Nasoya sent me sample bottles of their vegan Nayonaise spreads. I received both the regular, egg […]

Veggie Grill

Today, I’d like to share one of our current, and luckily local, favorite vegan restaurants the VeggieGrill! As of right now, they have locations in Southern and Northern California, Oregon and Washington – so basically a West Coast sort of place. We simply LOVE this place! All menu items are vegan – 100% plant-based. AND […]
