Vegan Taco-Fajita Chex Mix It’s Dangerous!

I love healthy whole foods as much as the next gal, but I do have my guilty pleasures.  And my late mom’s “Texas Trash,” the 1960s version of “Original Chex Mix,” is one.  But I can never leave well enough alone and, over the years, I have experimented with various flavored iterations.  This Taco-Fajita version Read more

Crispy Vegan Fan Potatoes (Faux Hasselback Potatoes)

Not to be cliche, but I am not quite sure where the time has gone since Christmas when I intended to post a number of scrumptious new recipes.  I guess snow storms, work, new love (!), and just life intervened.

Simmered Meatballs in Pineapple BBQ Sauce

These are Gardein meatballs. They held up very well in sauce. I sautéed them in oil first for about 10 minutes.

Secret Ingredient Two Chip Cookies

Got this recipe from a nifty cookbook and veganized it by using ener-g egg replacer for the egg. Didn't spread out very much but I loved the flavor. Mine came out crisp on the outside with a nice chewy and slightly crunchy texture due to the secret ingredient: potato chips! Not a vegan book at all but fun to look through. Show More Summary
