As soon as I saw that the theme for today was "most retro recipe", I knew I had to make vegan ambrosia. Even though it was originally known as a Southern traditional dessert, most people I know who were kids in the 60s and 70s had this in some form at nearly every picnic (and… Continue reading It’s Retro Day ~ Ambrosia for Vegan MOFO Day 9 !
Today's prompt for Vegan MOFO is to recreate a restaurant meal. Sadly, I've failed at that one as I'm writing these posts as I go and yesterday I taught a very fantastic, but very long, vegan cooking class, and didn't have time to create this great meal. Another day.... So I decided to deconstruct an… Continue reading It’s the Lime, Baby ~ Vegan MOFO Day 6
It's really interesting to me how some things stick with you for years. And years and years. The dish that I decided to make today was based on something I read in a book when I was 13. The book was called Taking Sides by Norma Klein, and it's about a girl whose parents divorce… Continue reading Orange Flower with Maple-Ginger Cream ~ Vegan MOFO Day 3

Last year, I had the good fortune to do recipe testing for Ricki Heller's upcoming cookbook. The recipes were so amazing and creative, and now that I have the book in my hands, I see that it's so much more than a cookbook. Candida, is a yeast that naturally occurs in the human body; but when… Continue reading Living Candida-Free ~ Recipe and Giveaway!
One of the things that non-vegans often say they dislike the most is when vegans get all "preachy". Personally, I disagree that telling the truth is preaching, but that's a whole other topic. But vegans can still educate others and help animals without lecturing to get their message across. I've been thinking a lot lately about relationships… Continue reading Many Paths to a Common Goal
