Mujadara (Vegan)

Okay so I had to take a break from Debbie's Food Smarts because there simply hasn't been time for hobbies here lately.  I live in the Greater Houston Area and on Aug. 25, Hurricane Harvey began dumping water on us and flooded my community and many other areas around Houston.  There's been a lot of … Continue reading Mujadara (Vegan)

Orange and Spinach Pasta Salad (Vegan)

I wasn't planning on blogging about this recipe when I first decided to make it, but this is such a delicious and refreshing summer pasta salad!  I don't have all the steps quite so extensively documented, but it's really so easy that you don't need them.  To make it vegan, just be sure to check the ingredients … Continue reading Orange and Spinach Pasta Salad (Vegan)

Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice (Vegan and sugar-free)

I'm really excited about this recipe!  I've only recently discovered cauliflower "rice" when I was looking at someone else's blog earlier this summer about doing a 30-day sugar detox. And I am supposed to be watching my starchy carb intake, like not have so much, so this was a great alternative.  I made it following … Continue reading Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice (Vegan and sugar-free)

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh yum!  Who doesn't like a homemade chocolate chip cookie?  I know very few who would pass this up!  Okay so this is not an original recipe.  I love to cook and I really love to bake, but have not made the attempt to try and come up with an original cookie recipe as of yet, mainly because … Continue reading Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Granola Bars

This is my all-time favorite granola bar recipe!  I got it from a dear friend many years ago and we recently looked for it's origin and couldn't find it, so I'm just going to give her credit (thanks Karen!) for this delicious granola bar recipe!  It wasn't originally vegan but I've modified it in lieu … Continue reading Vegan Granola Bars

Vegan Egg Substitutes

I have recently been playing around with some different vegan egg substitutes and wanted to share.  In a previous post I talked about these: I have found that these two work well with baking (except when I try and replace the egg in a homemade bread recipe) cakes, cookies, etc.  You mix these with water and add to … Continue reading Vegan Egg Substitutes

Vegan Biscuits and Gravy

I am so glad that my husband likes to cook! We really like to cook Sunday breakfast in our house...and over the past year (since my daughter has been a vegan) it's been more of a challenge finding good "breakfast" food but it's actually never tasted better!  I used to be satisfied with just some scrambled eggs, … Continue reading Vegan Biscuits and Gravy

Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

Ah, this is my comfort food.  Shepherd's Pie.  I can't remember where I got my first recipe, it's been probably more than 20 years, but I've altered it so much that it doesn't really matter.  And I have so many variations I probably never make it exactly the same way twice.  This last time was … Continue reading Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

Vegan Breakfast Hash

One thing I have had a hard time with is coming up with a delicious hot breakfast that doesn't require a lot of time, that isn't eggs or pancakes or waffles.  I can make vegan pancakes and waffles just fine, but I'm also trying to cut back on sugar so I don't want to eat too much … Continue reading Vegan Breakfast Hash

Vegan Zoodle Fusion (Zoodle bowl w/ Asian Dressing and Quinoa)

First of all I just want to say that I am very new to this food blogging/recipe sharing business but I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you.  I know my presentation is lacking and needs work but for starters I am more concerned with what's on the plate than the plate itself.  I'm sure over … Continue reading Vegan Zoodle Fusion (Zoodle bowl w/ Asian Dressing and Quinoa)
