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
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
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 don't think I will ever go back to making just plain ol' tacos with just some plain ground meat and … Continue reading Vegan Chickpea Burritos & BBQ Cauliflower & Chickpea Tacos

So, … Continue reading I need a minute….

But cheese would be really, really difficult to give up. Fortunately I have a beautiful vegan cheese connoisseur in the house who has tried and tested … Continue reading Say Cheese! Vegan cheese that is…

Any "click here's" or "blue" text are links to follow to get to those recipes or product information. Any recipes I share I have tried and have been successful and have really enjoyed, or else I wouldn't … Continue reading A quick note about recipes
*Recipes below have been edited since original post. I have a delicious chocolate cake recipe that I have been using for more than 25 years! It's always been my go-to homemade chocolate cake. It's not an original, it's from an old Hershey's cookbook from 1988, but I googled it and it's still out there on the Hershey's website. … Continue reading Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe
I have been struggling with what to talk about first. I decided to talk about vegan baking. It really isn't that hard and there are some easy options. I bought my daughter this vegan cookie cookbook: Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and WE LOVE IT!! It doesn't have a bunch of weird ingredients. We've made several … Continue reading Vegan Baking (Vegan brownie recipe below)
I am so happy that you have stopped by! This is my first attempt at trying a blog. I have been wanting to write about healthy and vegan eating for a while now but I knew setting up a blog would be overwhelming (it has been) with trying to decide which site to use and … Continue reading Welcome to my blog!
