Pecans, Chocolate, and Dates - oh my! This is my new favorite spread and it's good on just about anything. I enjoyed turtle butter on crackers, graham crackers and in between 2 slices of whole wheat bread and grilled. Tell me how you are using it - I'm dying to know! … [Go to Full Post...]

If you or one of your guests are avoiding gluten you can still have a sweet kugel with these homemade quinoa flour and flax noodles. The creaminess of the kugel comes from an easy-to-make cashew sour cream. The caramel is made from dates and vanilla, making this a healthy choice too.
If you keep … [Go to Full Post...]
It seems that allergies are becoming more of the norm and since I'm an inclusive cook I try to have a little something for everyone that sits at my table. These noodles are gluten-free, soy-free and have no added oil so they fit in most people's diets.
These quinoa noodles are easier to … [Go to Full Post...]
You can't go wrong by making beans for dinner. They are healthy, easy and hands off once they go into the slow cooker plus you can even freeze the leftovers for later.

Here's a quick and easy mug cake that's all vegan and cooks in just 1 minute! I usually prefer to make little cakes for two in my small slow cooker, but lately I've been experimenting with the more conventional mug cakes for one that you cook in the microwave.
I have to admit that I've … [Go to Full Post...]
It always warms my heart to see vegan options pop up in the national arena. Even better I love seeing this soy-free, gluten-free and nondairy frozen vegan yogurt right in my own backyard. I'm hoping this is showing up in airport because it would be awesome to have an option there too.

With St. Patrick's Day behind me and a whole pitcher of vegan Irish Cream Liquor in the fridge it's time to make some Irish cream recipes.
I thought pancakes would be a good place to start. After all the Irish cream is mostly coconut and cashew and that makes everything moist and … [Go to Full Post...]
Happy St. Patrick's Day! In my pre-vegan days I loved Irish cream and while you can't buy a vegan version at the store it's easy enough to make yourself. Plus you can make a gluten-free version by using a gluten-free Irish whiskey like Jameson.
First you make a cashew cream and then add in some … [Go to Full Post...]
I have to say this has not been my favorite week. We didn't have power for 3 days and with our well that means no water too. I now know that I haven't appreciated water piped in the house nearly enough. Then yesterday the power went off again while I was working on a tight deadline. I put on my big … [Go to Full Post...]
Just when I think winter has finally gone away we get snow and frozen rain again. It's March in North Carolina and it's just not supposed to be like this! It was 70 degrees over the weekend and 12 degrees this past Monday night. I have a suspicion that these crazy ups and downs are why all my … [Go to Full Post...]
It's Friday so that means it's time to figure out what to make for brunch this weekend. I've been on a pancake kick at home. I like that everything I need is there waiting in my pantry. I also love the flavor of sausage spices with pancakes covered with maple syrup.
I thought why not … [Go to Full Post...]
