Peach Walnut Muffins

I have used variations of this recipe for over 20 years. It is inspired by an old Moosewood recipe, but I veganized it and added more ingredients to pack in more nutrition.  Don’t worry about using whole wheat flours. Other flour would work fine. These are always a hit any time, but I like to […]

Super Tasty Granola

I have spent the last few days camping on the coast in California with my family and lots of extended family. So it has been a while since I have written anything, but I am back and I am excited to share some of my favorite traveling and camping recipes. Any time I travel I […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Walnut Waffles

This waffle recipe is divine.  It is inspired by one in Veganomicon, that has a little more oil and more sugar in it. I also added walnuts, rather than pecans, and I use sucanat instead of sugar.  I find these perfect with a little less of those ingredients and served with a scoop of non-dairy […]

Coconut Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream

For the first two years of my married life, my husband and I were vegetarians. We did not eat a lot of dairy, but, while we lived in Providence, RI, we did visit the Ben & Jerry’s store occasionally. And we always went on Free Ice Cream Day. Wahoo! We were always happy to join […]

Coconut Curried Purple Cabbage and Rice with Mint

I love all the members of the cabbage family. They are so delicious and nutritious and easy to find at the grocery store. Purple cabbage is loaded with vitamin C and K and has lots of fiber and folate too. The color of purple cabbage is so beautiful and grows even deeper and richer when […]

Healthy Vegan Egg Substitutions

I realize that many people starting a plant-based diet do not know how to avoid eggs, without eliminating food with eggs in them completely. Baking was a challenge for me for a long time when I first switched to using no animal products. I used egg whites in pancakes and cookies for a long time […]

Coconut Lemon Walnut Cookie

If I had not mentioned it before, you should know that I love homemade cookies. Yes, everyone in my family knows that I can pass up candy any day, its not even tempting in the least. But if there is a cookie in the room I will find it. I have to work REALLY REALLY […]

Cilantro Pesto Veggie Bowl

Cilantro Pesto goes well with so many different foods. It is obviously great on a bowl of pasta and it is great as a sandwich condiment (just think of a roasted veggie cilantro pesto sandwich, YUM!). A spoonful of it on a veggie burrito or enchilada is divine. And it is super good as a […]

Vegan Cilantro Pesto

One of the best things about summer is fresh basil from the garden. I look forward to it all year. Late summer dinners are filled with the yumminess of basil pesto in lots of different dishes, which I will post about later. However, while waiting for the basil to grow enough to harvest and to […]
