Wow! I can’t believe the first week of 2011 is almost over! I have a feeling before you know it, 2011 will be a distant memory. Okay, so along with realizing the first week of January is almost up, I have yet to post anything… Not so good on the New Year’s Resolution is it? So not to disappoint you (or me), here’s a little recipe I threw together the other night. I was in the mood for stir-fry, so I looked in my frig and this is what I came up with. Left-Over Stir Fry Serves 1 1 teaspoon...

Can you believe today is the last day of 2010!?! Wow where did the year go? I’ve been so busy this past month between the holidays, my trip to Cincinnati and Chicago and the launch of my catering business “the green vegetarian” where has the month gone? I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for taking the time in your busy schedules to read my blog.

Quinoa Carrot-Apple Salad

Over the weekend I participated in a heart talk called “Tools for a Healthier Lifestyle” with my friends Adene and Laura from Aultman Heart Center at Aultman Hospital. I did a cooking demonstration using heart friendly vegan foods. I made rice pilaf, chocolate rice cereal treats, tofu banana bread, pumpkin cup cakes and quinoa carrot-apple salad. I enjoyed sharing my vegan knowledge to a crowd of non-vegans! I hope they try at least one of my recipes! Here’s the quinoa carrot-apple salad…a...

Wondrous Spaghetti Squash

  I’m freezing today! It’s really only 60; but it seems so cold, gray, and rainy. It is kind of hard to believe that only 3 days ago it was 90 degrees!

Have you ever tried spaghetti squash? It’s amazing and it’s great for all you non-carb believers out there. Spaghetti squash is so easy to...

Happy Birthday!

I can’t believe it that is has been one year since I started my blog and my new way of eating – my new beginnings. It really hasn’t been hard being a vegan – it’s a shame more restaurants just don’t get it. All of us would be so much healthier if we had fresh choices. I was once there; cheeseburgers, fries, steak and just maybe a hot fudge sundae to top it all off. No more. I feel so much better now; I sleep well at night, I have tons more energy, and I’m fit! I use to think...

Vegan Doughnuts….what!?!

Okay, even though I try to eat really healthy now….at one time I was a big junk food eater…(I still have my down falls every once in awhile….) One of my favorite Saturday/Sunday lounging in bed treats was doughnuts..Oh well…..that’s what I thought until now! I found this recipe in the “vegan yum yum” cookbook by Lauren Ulm And she’s right! These are yum, yum! In fact this book has countless yummy recipes! The only equipment you need is a mini doughnut pan which I...
