1/6 Baked Potato Soup

Happy Meatless Monday. Like many of you across the country, Michigan has been plunged into a  blistering cold,  crunchy, barren world of white. It feels more  like Antarctica than my home.  The first night of the storm the snow tumbled from the sky, heavy and wet…perfect for packing. My best friend Amy and I suited […]

11/11 Mediterranean Style Spaghetti Squash

Time to buy them, store them and enjoy them for the next several months. This recipe creates a rich and satisfying dinner […]

11/4 Mexican Flour Tortilla Pizzas

Happy Meatless Monday and National Vegan Month. I have a fun and easy recipe to shore up your dinner plans. This dish is an inspiration from my friend Claire and happens to be a scandalous combination of  Mexican food and pizza, two of my favorites.  It is nearly as easy as the drive thru because […]

10/14 Sea Salt Caramel Dip

Happy Meatless Monday. I have never been so excited to share a recipe. Photographing it became a battle between right and wrong. It took everything I had to not gobble down the entire plate of goodness. I absolutely love caramel apple dip. The minute I see a leaf change color and feel a slight chill […]

10/9 Sauteed Patty Pan Squash

Over the weekend we went to Eastern Market, Detroit’s lush and bountiful public market. It has been feeding the Metro Detroit area since 1891. It is one of the longest running public markets in the exact same place that it began, at the city’s center. Everytime we go it is an adventure in edible excitement. One […]

6/6 DIY Papaya Ice Cream w/Toasted Coconut

Happy day two of All Things Frozen Week. Last year while staying in Cozumel I fell madly in love with papaya. I ate it everyday, multiple times a day.  I ate the equivalent of what the trip cost in papaya. Some people take the toiletries or use more towels than they need…I ate papaya.  I […]

6/3 Strawberry Balsamic Popsicles

Happy Meatless Monday and self proclaimed All Things Frozen Week. This week I want to celebrate the return of Summer by  focusing on dairy free desserts to enjoy as the sun blazes overhead. It has been steamy hot here in Michigan. The kind of hot  that makes you want to eat popsicles for lunch and […]

5/6 BBQ Tofu Fries

Happy Meatless Monday. Although I have been a food loving vegetarian for more than fifteen years and vegan for nearly three, I have to admit…I am frequently surprised by tofu. After all of these years, I am still suspect of the strange white block and I don’t know why. It is most often better than […]

1/16 Roasted Garlic and Potato Soup with Kale

The adventures of VitaMan and his sidekick, Sherry the VeganWannabe continue with this fun dish, roasted garlic and potato soup. Keith allowed me to blend up a new soup recipe using his Vitamix. I roasted this…added that and it was done.  I love this machine and must have one. The good news is that those of us without our own Vitamix […]

6/25 Lemon & Parsley Fava Spread

Photo by: S. Duquet Happy Meatless Monday. I have a  unique spread recipe to share with you. Created from fava beans, it is nutty, as green as a crayon and insanely good for you. Over the weekend I found fresh fava beans at the market. I had never purchased or eaten them before so I […]
