6/29 Cucumber Boats w/Cashew Dill Cheese

Last weekend while at Whole Foods I grabbed a free recipe for a Creamy Cucumber dip made from raw Cashews. I crafted the recipe adding my own flair and we enjoyed it on crackers like  pate and with veggies as a dip. It was light, fragrant and satiating.  I also used it to stuff cucumbers [...]

It is a documentary about a man named Joe that cures his debilitating autoimmune disease, becomes a rock solid athlete, completely over-hauls his own life and the lives of thousands of people around the world by undertaking a 60 day [...]

6/22 Vegan Pizza Day 2012

6/20 Fermented Treasure

I love Tempeh the way I love fresh air. I know I wouldn’t want to live without it.  Tempeh does not masquerade as faux meat. It knows it is a strange fermented soybean cake and is entirely unapologetic. It has a bizarre texture and the strangest most unidentifiable, comforting flavor. I can hardly walk by [...]

6/18 Eating the Bushes

Happy Meatless Monday.  I have an easy recipe to share that will elevate your broccoli and effortlessly work a meatless dish into your plan for the week. Think of it as broccoli, only better. When I was a little girl I lived next door to what seemed like the oldest woman that had ever lived. [...]

6/15 Road Trip. Auf Wierdersehein

Considered Michigan’s Little Bavaria, all of the buildings, restaurants and stores are Bavarian-esque. There are biergartens, flower gardens and music in the streets. Specialty treats include hand crafted soft pretzels, the coldest, German beer and Portobello mushroom fries with [...]

6/13 Thai Peanut & Curry Popsicles

Image courtesy of Facebook I love making popsicles. I had never made them until I became vegan and then they became a form of entertainment….a fanciful addition to any 80 degree day. Last night I splurged on new popsicle molds. They were $3.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond and have already provided double that in [...]

6/8 Primal Hunger

I have found that I feel my best when I eat all day long. I like to snack between meals, on my way to work and on my way home. I eat when I am hungry to avoid becoming ravenous and insane. When I come home from work famished and emotionally  beat down by retail [...]
