Baked Almond "Feta"

This recipe reminds me of my Dad. Not because he likes it (though I am quite sure he would), has eaten it or has ever even heard of it! It reminds me of him because he loves blanched almonds and also feta cheese. As a kid, I remember he would often soak raw almonds and leave them in the refrigerator to snack on....more

Quinoa Stuffed Cabbage

St Patty's day approaches and I have to admit, I know nothing about Irish food.  In fact,  I have only eaten Irish food once before, at a local restaurant, and it was God awful.  While I am not suggesting this is typical of Irish food, it is my very limited experience with it....more

Potato Mushroom Napoleons

Other than a failed cupcake attempt, Saturday was a perfect day of cooking.  I was up before five, tested my hand at some polenta which eventually turned into polenta fries and pizza....more
@BlogHer Yum! Do you think using real dairy would hurt the recipe?more

Valentine's Day and a Sweet Cupcake

I have got to admit I am not a fan of Valentine's Day. Other than when I was a kid, and Valentine's Day meant boxes of candy, I never really have been. It just seems so silly- a manufactured holiday grounded in nothing other than the candy and greeting card industry's desire to generate revenue.  ...more

I thought it would be great to give those freebies to some of my readers. sok eep reading to find out how to be entered to win some free Gardein!...more

Potato Cauliflower and Cabbage Fritters

Yesterday I shared with you the Potato,  Cauliflower and Cabbage Pierogis I made.  Not only was that our dinner, I froze a bunch of them for another day, and put a couple in my daughters lunch for tomorrow.  You may recall I miscalculated on the amount of filling needed based on the amount of dough I made. ...more

Potato Cauliflower and Cabbage Pierogis

Hannah over at Bitter Sweet got me thinking about pierogis. Hers looked fabulous and she gave me the inspiration to try my hand at making my own.  I don't think I have had them since going vegan and I did used to like them quite a bit....more

Veggie Chili Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Work has been incredibly busy. Between marathon meetings and business travel I have not had the time to cook as much as I would like.  As a result I have had to resort "shopping" in my own freezer. Thankfully, when I do cook I tend to make enough for an army so I found some goodies in there I had forgotten all about....more

Nutter Butter Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I recently saw a recipe for Nutter Butter Cupcakes.  Upon seeing the recipe I immediately Googled "are Nutter Butters vegan". Guess what?  They are! I used to love Nutter Butters as a kid and I can honestly say that before yesterday I had not had one in many years!  They are as good as I remember them!...more
