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 [...]

1/14 Creamy Corn Chowder

Happy Meatless Monday. Sandy and I are still in Michigan after a death in my family brought us back unexpectedly. Because we had planned to spend the winter in Florida,  there is a family renting our home so we are staying with our friends Kathy and Keith.  A few days after we arrived, Sandy and I [...]

11/30 Just Dive In

We are home from our trip to Florida.  I have found it difficult to get back into the swing of things. The sunny beach felt immune to the stress and hustle of the holidays, but here we are.  We did so many memorable things in Florida that I hardly know what to share first. I’ll [...]

11/16 Battle of the Eggnogs

Eggnog is one of the things I look forward to with baited breath every holiday season. I love its comforting, smooth drinkability and its warm spicy flavor. I am also wooed by its limited availability. Its “enjoy me now because I won’t be here long” attitude makes me want it more. A few days ago [...]

8/9 Why Don’t Vegans Drink Milk?

On Sunday our eleven year old niece Isabella came to stay with us for a week. She is here from Florida. We picked her up at the airport and took her right to one of our favorite vegetarian restaurants in Ann Arbor. We had a phenomenal lunch, sharing different dishes, fresh juice concoctions and two [...]

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 [...]

6/13 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 [...]

6/6 Spring Peas and Scapes

The peas are the star in this dish. Each ingredient was chosen for its willingness to honor and glorify the Spring Pea. This dish is light and airy with the authority of a complete meal. I think you are going to love this with any type of pea…fresh or frozen. Have a delicious day.
