Amazing Vegan Meal at Fearrington House

noFeatured

There’s not much I like more than going out to a fancy dinner with friends. The Fearrington House is a 5 star restaurant right in my backyard and the food there always leaves me speechless. Cheryl and I like to celebrate there as much as possible, which on our budget means only a few times a year. But they […]

Tempeh Girl – Artisianal Tempeh From Hillsborough , NC

noFeatured

I have always liked tempeh, but never really loved it. It  tastes great in a strong sauce or in a sandwich mixed with other bold flavors. Typically I steam it for about 10 minutes to remove that hint of bitterness than can be off-putting. Last week I posted a Tempeh Stroganoff that was super simple to make and […]

Crockpot Lavender Rose Cocoa

noFeatured

I originally made this as a Valentine cocoa, but romance shouldn’t be limited to just one day. Surprise your someone special with the yummy dessert cocoa. The lavender and rose flavors blend together to form its own taste that’s not as floral as you think. I used lavender extract which I got at Savory Spice Shop, but […]

Super Simple Slow Cooker Tempeh Mushroom Stroganoff

noFeatured

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 […]

Roasted root veggies are my latest obsession. Well, one of my obsessions, but at least my craziness keeps me occupied. Things like this tend to happen when you get more than one turnip that’s as big as your head! (Thanks winter csa for making me more turnip friendly!) You can roast veggies in the slow […]

I had The Market‘s Mint White Russian the other night. (It was one of two creamy vegan drinks on their menu!) They used homemade Kahlua and mint infused vodka. If you live in the triangle you must give them a try. I was hesitant about the coffee mint combo but I was won over. It was so good […]

I grew up with sweet tea and grilled pimento cheese sandwiches. Now I sweeten my tea with stevia a touch of agave and I still make pimento cheese only now it’s vegan! This a traditional Southern favorite and it’s also soy-free and gluten-free when you use Daiya cheese! For about 1/4 cup of the fondue it’s […]

Slow Cooker Indian Spiced Chickpea Quinoa Stew

noFeatured

As promised, here is the ridiculously easy and tasty stew I mentioned over the weekend. I seem to be on a streak of ugly but packed-full of flavor recipes this month. I guess the veggies that are available in January aren’t quite as flashy as some of the summer ones. That, and well, stews aren’t […]

Thanks so much to Kathy for letting me share one of my new favorite recipes with you. If you’ve been following my Cook for Good project, you’ve seen me use less and less dairy and eggs in 2011. In early December, I went full-fledged vegan. Was it reading The China Study again? Reading Eaarth? Weekly lunches with […]
