Vegan French Onion Soup from But My Family Would Never Eat Vegan!

Many years ago, when I had adopted a vegetarian-but-not-yet-vegan diet, my family was good about accepting my choices, though we did have to work out what would and would not be comfortable for me to be around. The hamburger I could handle, the pig roast wasn't going to happen. While some of them were even willing… Continue reading Vegan French Onion Soup from But My Family Would Never Eat Vegan!

Vegan Beef Barley Soup

For the past couple of weeks, I've been trying to pretend that it's fall. You know, crisp cool days with crunchy leaves underfoot, and the smell of the first wood fires of the season. With temperatures still in the 80s, it's not all that easy. Not that I don't love living in California, but I… Continue reading Vegan Beef Barley Soup

Spicy Summer Quesadillas

One great thing about summer is that it just begs for quick, light and easy meals. For me, that often means really random combinations of things thrown together, but occasionally I come up with something truly spectacular. And judging by the rave reviews that these quesadillas got, they were one of them. Funny, I thought… Continue reading Spicy Summer Quesadillas

Tofu & Veggies Meet The Sauce of Fire ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

A few years ago, we were moving to a new house, in a new city, about an hour and a half away. Now, this wasn't a "toss everything into boxes and transport it from one place to another "move. It was a "take everything out, look through it and decide what comes, what goes and… Continue reading Tofu & Veggies Meet The Sauce of Fire ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

Vegan Mac and Cheese with Tempeh Bacon, Scallions & Tomatoes ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

One of my all time favorite things to eat is macaroni and cheese. What is there to not like, after all? Lots of carbs with cheesy sauce holding it all together, yum. And it was even one of the first things I learned how to make as a child - yep, the neon orange stuff… Continue reading Vegan Mac and Cheese with Tempeh Bacon, Scallions & Tomatoes ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

Rosemary Olive Potpie Turnovers

I have a confession to make... I'm extremely food-suggestible. In other words, if you tell me about it or I see it, I usually want to eat it. That means I easily fall prey to mentions of food in books, magazines, and on late night television. Of course, I don't always eat it, but that… Continue reading Rosemary Olive Potpie Turnovers

Some of the amazing new items that participants got to try: Coconut Bliss Salted Caramel & Chocolate… Continue reading Vegan Pasta Carbonara
