Big McVeggieMac

Hello my vegan friends and anyone out there just a little curious! I’ve been so busy these past months I have neglected my blog, sorry. I’m happy to say that I’ve been busy in a good way. I now cook and deliver vegetarian meals for several people around my area a few times a week. I’ve also been doing some cooking classes and spreading the vegan word around Ohio. I have to admit that I used to LOVE, dare I say it – Big Macs. (Probably why I had triple by-pass surgery!). I keep trying...

Chips and Dip

I should have posted this last week before the Academy Awards. Every year my first husband and I had a tradition, we would watch the Academy Awards faithful while eating chips and dip – our own little party. Sadly Nick died almost 16 years ago of cancer, but I have continued this tradition to this day. So instead of the the dairy version of dips I used to make, I came up with this delicious non-dairy Artichoke Dip. Nick might have approved but I doubt seriously he would have bought into me being a vegan (you...

TVP

Last week I was in beautiful sunny Marco Island, Florida. The weather was in the mid 80’s, sunny, just lovely. Back to Ohio where its cold and gloomy (actually today was pretty nice, sunny and almost 60!). What brings to my mind on those cold days is chili. I use to love my meat laden chili, but those days are gone and I do miss chili like my mom use to make. So, I decided to try using TVP – Textured Vegetable Protein. What, you may ask, exactly is TVP? Textured Vegetable Protein is a made from...

Roasted Tomato Soup with Basil

Labor Day – the end of summer. I know we still could have some lovely warm days ahead, but let’s face it, summer is over. I spent a lovely couple of days with my cousins from Erie, Pennsylvania. My cousin Tony had a fish fry…(okay, don’t go ballistic on me) in what use to be my Aunt and Uncles cottage in Ripley, New York where I have lots of great memories! I brought fresh homemade salsa and fresh guacamole. There where also lots of fresh lovely salads, so plenty for a vegan to eat. I met...

Creamy Amazing Cole Slaw

Just in time for the end of the summer ….what better dinner than a vege burger, fresh corn on the cob, grilled, and cole slaw. I use to love to order cole slaw instead of a salad at restaurants, but unfortunately no more…(no vegan mayo of course!). I made this yesterday and even my non- vegan husband loved it! Give it a try! Creamy Amazing Cole Slaw Serves 4 to 6 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise 1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar pinch sea salt 1 small head green cabbage, shredded 1...

Vegan Peach Cobbler

One of my very favorite fruits is the peach. I just can’t eat enough of them in the summer time. I decided to try a peach cobbler. I found several recipes and came up with my own vegan version. Give it a try – it is easy and oh my, so good! You may have noticed in my recipe that I use turbinado sugar. Why? Turbinado sugar is raw sugar that has been steam-cleaned. Turbinado sugar is vegan unlike refined white sugar which is usually treated with bone char, an animal product. VERY EASY PEACH COBBLER Yield: 5...
