Randomness 2015 – Series #1

Um, so you may have noticed there’s not a lot of posting going on here at the blog this year. I assure you though, there is more posting happening on other social media platforms and hope you will join me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. I’m finding that finding the time to post has […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

Lentil & Veggie Soup (Dahl)

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, […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

And just like that it’s FALL! The weather has changed so fast! I’m not complaining mind you as I just love Fall!

Meatless Monday – Fall means BAKING

Tomatoes Straight out of the Garden

As I was picking these luscious tomatoes from my garden this morning, I pondered all the different things I could do with them. I thought I’d share my ideas: Eat  ‘Em Straight Up – pretty much describes itself – this happens to at least a few of these cuties each time I go out to […] Read more…

Simple Summer Dish – Squash & Zucchini

It’s summer and if you’re invited to any sort of dinner/BBQ and asked to bring a tasty “veggie” dish…here’s one that should work out really well for you!

Breakfast ’round These Here Parts

Just for fun, I thought I’d post some photos of a typical breakfast around our house. I know for some people it’s easy to skip breakfast even if you know that it’s not good for you to do so. I’m not much of a cereal eater and I’m not fond of starting my day with […] Read more…

Couscous, Black Bean & Corn Salad

Happy Meatless Monday everyone!! I made this couscous salad for a bar-b-que we had with the kids yesterday on Mother’s Day. Our first BBQ of the season! This salad was super easy to make – and easy to improvise with if you’re running short of time and have to use what you have on hand […] Read more…

Meatless Monday – Cauliflower on the Brain

Truly, lately I’ve had cauliflower on the brain. This has created somewhat of an obsession with this little-used-in-my-house veggie. Let me tell you how it all started… A couple of weeks ago I came across a recipe for a curried-cashew cauliflower dish. The obsession begins… I haven’t made this recipe yet because I keep forgetting […] Read more…

For the Love of BEANS!!

As I looked through the recipes I’ve posted throughout the life of this blog, I am amazed how many of them contain BEANS! Therefore, it goes without saying I LOVE BEANS! Thank goodness for that because I think it would be truly hard for me to be a healthy vegan without them! Beans are like […] Read more…
