Simple Bread

Honestly, I don’t make bread often enough and I don’t know why! I love everything about making bread, the texture, the creativity, the smells and especially the end result. This weekend I took the time to make a simple bread dough. I love that it doesn’t need many ingredients. In fact, if you have yeast, […] Read more…

Apple Vegan Cake

It’s Meatless Monday and Vegan Recipe Day!! Can you believe it? Probably not, because I haven’t shared a recipe here on this blog in a long, long while.

Vegan Vancouver

Just another quick phone post during our way-too-brief stay here in Vancouver before our cruise. I love this city for so many reasons – one being the amazing variety of food.

Sea Bakin’ Seaweed Snacks

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.

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…

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 Vegetable Enchiladas

On an absolute whim, I decided I would make some Vegan Vegetable Enchiladas.

The sauce was truly the part of the dish that has […] Read more…
