My Cobb Salad with Egg and Dairy Free Ranch

I'm not the biggest fan of ranch, but sometimes I get a craving for it that just won't go away. Like my cravings for buffalo wings. Sheesh! Don't get me started on those. A ranch craving popped up about a week ago, and ever since I've been dairy and egg free, I have not for the life of me been able to find a decent ranch dressing! I also haven't been able to find a dairy free ranch seasoning, until last week....more

Vegan Side Dish

This Vegan Side Dish recipe is great for any season. You can increase or decrease the amount of vegetables according to your taste, or add a new one which is fresh on the market. Meat eaters will also love it, served together with baked or grilled meat. In that case, add vegetables to the baking pan with meat about 20 minutes before the meat is cooked. Cover with foil and cook together. In my family Vegan Side Dish was such a success that I was asked to make it two times in a row. I hope you will like it, too!...more

VEGAN PB BLACK BEAN BROWNIES

As a chocoholic I can't tell you how excited I am to have found a recipe that combines my love for healthy food and chocolatey goodness.It only makes sense that my first blog post include chocolate + peanut butter (two of my faves).  These brownies are fudgey and peanut buttery and a-ma-zing! I made these for my mom's birthday and was a bit skeptical of how they would turn out. I'm still amazed at how something egg free, flour free, and refined sugar-free can be so awesome, but try it for yourself to see how yummy these are.  ...more

Vegetable Ribbon 'Pasta': Paleo, Gluten-Free and Vegan

I started making vegetable ribbon pasta as a teenager. I was a lanky, moody, pale vegetarian , who loved to spend hours in the kitchen (huh….not much has changed!), and my parents had a bumper crop of zucchini from their enormous garden that was mine to do with as I pleased. I made savory pancakes and zucchini bread and latke-like fritters. But the one recipe I made on repeat was grated zucchini ribbons, simply sautéed with salt and pepper--I couldn’t get enough. ...more
