Gardein Fish Filet Sandwich, Scalloped Potatoes & Vegan Subway!

I love Gardein fish filets. They are just like the real thing and make great sandwiches too. This is f-ing delicious! Recipe from "You Won't Believe It's Vegan!". Slow cooked scalloped potatoes in a creamy, garlic, onion, dill sauce. The other night I went to Subway for their VEGAN MALIBU GARDEN sandwich. Show More Summary

Quick Vegan Chilaquiles–A Mexican Restaurant Leftovers Redux

Joe and I go out for Mexican food at least once a week–alternating between two neighborhood restaurants– and, last night, we both ordered something different than we normally do.  He, an omnivore, ordered chilaquiles and I ordered what I didn’t realize was vegan fajitas, as it was called something like “Vegetarian E,” with a side […]

Banana Bread Pudding

My “little girl” turned 18 last week. I feel like I should have something profound to say on this momentous occasion, but everything that comes to mind is so trite: “Time flies.” “They grow up so fast.” “It seems like only yesterday that she started kindergarten.” There’s a reason those expressions are so overused: The […]

Lemon Blueberry Almond Essence Cake.

Super good lemon blueberry cake with almond essence. I had some quebec blueberries in the freezer and a lemon and a half. I thought, "Ok, I'll make Kittee's vanilla cake without the vanilla and use almond extract and add lemon and blueberries...Show More Summary

Vietnamese Tofu Stack with with Golden Shitake Saute, Herb and Peanut Pesto, and Pickled Cucumber-Carrot Relish

Love My New GSD Haushaltsgeräte 30 000 Mandolin

One of our many culinary wedding gifts was a mandolin made for home use, which I used early on, just about sliced my finger off, and promptly gave away. It’s been many years since then and, with all of the cooking I’ve done, I’ve never felt I needed or wanted another mandolin.  But something I saw–probably […]

Caramel Corn

I can't eat this tasty treat because of my Crohn's, but I have had rave reviews from friends and family alike. This recipe is pretty much like every other caramel corn recipe out there, except that it uses vegan margarine which is cheap and adds some salt to complement the sweetness. Show More Summary

It was called Ethical Consumption and Black Rage in an era of Neoliberal Whiteness (Ferguson Remix). Here is the video above. Sorry, the audio isn’t so good.

Meditation Workshop - RECONNECT

Las Vegas not the first place you think of when someone mentions gourmet vegan food?  Me either.

Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Vegan Lemony Agean Artichoke and Chickpea Spread–The World’s Easiest, Springiest, and Tastiest!

Last week, I was in Mississippi, aka the ‘Sip, visiting my family when we suddenly realized that we had three guests joining us for happy hour and nothing to serve them.  My parents–children of the depression, the canned food-centric ’50s and ’60s, and survivors of Hurricane Katrina–always have a well-stocked pantry with overflow in two remote […]

Vegan Asparagus, Leek and Fennel Spring Stew

Yield:  2 main dish servings or 4 side dish servings This simple “stew” is much lighter–in color and heft–than a winter stew and really just refers to the fact that the lovely spring vegetables are married in a creamy, white wine-kissed sauce.  In both texture and flavor, it is addicting. 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 […]
