“Sausage” and Peppers

I love sausage and peppers or should I say I use to love sausage and peppers. When I was a chicken eater, I switched to chicken sausage which is good. I was in my local health food store (Raisin Rack, Canton, Ohio) and I noticed Vegetarian Sausage made by Lightlife Smart Sausages, Italian Style. It was around $4.00, so I thought, well I spend that at Starbucks, I should give it a try. Well, I’m so glad I did. I LOVED it! I noticed they also have Vegetarian beef and chicken, I’ll have to try that next...

Honey Oat Quick Bread

I met my wonderful friends Andrea and Tracy the other night for Tracy’s birthday. (OK, Tracy I didn’t say your age). I haven’t seen them since before Christmas so I decided I would make them a little goodies. I saw this recipe, it was really easy and I hope it taste good! (I actually gave it to them without trying it!) It smelled really good while it was baking. I plan to make a loaf for myself later. Give it a try, if you love bread, you won’t need to go to the bakery the next time you...
