A tribute…..

This past week my mom died. She was 3 weeks shy of her 86th birthday. She had a massive stroke. She ate very well, no red meat, just chicken and fish. I learned from her the value of eating 3 square meals a day. In those days I think there where very few vegetarians, but I know my mom must have been a vegetarian at heart. Back then, there was very little money for meat, so their diets where more vegetables than meat. I’m sure she ate more beans which of course are very high in protein. My mom always made us...

Kelleys Island, Ohio

Last weekend my husband and I went to Kelleys Island, a small island, only 4 square miles, the largest fresh water American island in Lake Erie. Yes, Lake Erie is actually clean and beautiful, it was named on “CNN” top ten list of America’s healthiest beach and lake getaways! Pretty good considering that beaches from Hawaii, California and Florida where also on the list. The weather was great, and I actually was able to eat vegetarian while I was there. The restaurants are mostly pub fare, but...

Whats for lunch?

Posted by on Sep 17, 2009 in Blog

Several years ago (probably at least 20!) I bought one of those little cookbooks you see at the check-out counter, the one I purchased was called “Easy Entertaining” it cost me $2.25. One of the recipes was a layered taco dip. I use to make it every time I had to make a dish for a party, it would always get rave reviews. I was thinking about the dish yesterday and realized what a perfect vegetarian meal it would be. Its loaded with protein and its yummy! I found my little book, ripped pages and all,...

They put out a cookbook, which I immediately ran out a bought...

Out to Dinner

Posted by on Sep 11, 2009 in Blog

Several years ago my daughter took a class on India. For extra credit they could choose to eat at an Indian Restaurant. Her professor recommended a local restaurant “Bombay Sitar” located in Canton, Ohio, 4633 Belden Village St NW. My daughter loved it! She has since turned me into an “Indian Food fanatic”! Its a vegetarian persons dream restaurant! They have over 15 different vegetarian offerings. We went the other night, I got “Bayngan Bharta” eggplant roasted in the Tandoor...
