Whole grain apple walnut bars with a little apple brandy to help you celebrate fall! So grab an apple bar, a sweater and sit on the deck awhile. You can even bring out a hot spiked tea in case you get chilly while you watch the leaves fall.

Last week the pie pumpkins were peeking out at me begging to join in on some cooking fun. I’ve talked about making pumpkin puree before, but today I’m providing some step-by-step instructions and pictures. Let’s hear it for trying to overachieve for Mofo!

You guys know I tend to get on a tangent and now I can’t stop making frozen coffees. I guess it’s too warm to re-start my oatmeal obsession and they are so much better than you-know-who’s. Since the CSA has been making veggies magically apear at my house so I haven’t gone to the farmers […]

This Tempeh Mushroom Stroganoff is amazingly easy and full of great flavors. It has few ingredients, but the mushrooms combined with the bouillon create an amazing broth that becomes the base of the sauce. I don’t use tempeh as much as I should. It’s a fermented soy product that’s originally from Indonesia. Most people agree that […]

Slow Cooker Spicy Southern Chickpeas and Grits

For those of you not familiar with Southern food this is my (vegan) version of Shrimp and Grits. Traditionally it’s base is a spicy tomato based sauce with bell peppers. I’ve used chickpeas because they don’t break down as much as pinto beans or the like. Of course there’s bacon in the original version, and doubly of course I […]
