Meatless Monday – Vegan Artichoke Dip

I made this for the first time on New Years Eve – and brought it to a friend’s house. I’m so glad it turned out tasty because it would’ve been embarrassing if it had not been. In fact, I was excited to see that all the vegan snacks I brought that night were devoured quickly…even […] Read more…

Meatless Monday – Vegetable Soup over Rice or Noodles

I’m in soup mode again. I apologize…I think. Considering my daughters and grandsons just devoured bowls of it, I think I should re-consider an apology.

Healthy & Happy Vegan Anniversary!

One year ago this month I made the commitment to go vegan. I’ve been a vegetarian on and off for most of my life, so it didn’t seem like too big of a stretch to go vegan. I’ll admit at first, I had to be more conscious of my choices especially eating out and especially […] Read more…
