Spicy Thai Tofu Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce

I have had lettuce wraps a few times but never attempted to make them until last night. I adapted this recipe from one on this website. It originally used a substitute chicken product but I wanted to try tofu instead. It worked out really well and it was also not difficult to make. The sauce […]

Cabbage and Sweet Potato Soup

Vegan Ranch Dressing

I just hated this idea and wanted them to develop the love for veggies without ranch dressing on them, or at […]

Sweet Potato and Kale Pizza

I wanted to make something for Pi day without making a sugar and fat bomb, so I decided to make a pizza pie. Okay, so my kids have grown up eating all kinds of very untraditional pizzas. I will post more of the kinds of pizzas that we make most often later. But I wanted […]

I love good bread. In fact, I could turn down lots of sweets for a really good piece of bread. I have been experimenting with making multi -grain bread for a while now and have come up with a winner. It started out with my moms delicious sandwich bread recipe and then I started adding […]

Asian “Mac and Cheese”

I have only tried making vegan “mac and cheese” dishes over the last year. I had never missed the idea of mac and cheese so I never felt tempted to try a vegan version. However, just for variety, about 1 year ago, I started making different “cheese sauce” recipes and variations of this theme. When […]
