Green Pina Colada Smoothie

DSC_0869

It’s almost summer and that means daily smoothies for breakfast at my house. This year  Cheryl is having them too and it’s a painless way to get more greens in her everyday! Cheryl tends to get hungry fast after a smoothie breakfast so I like to add some protein powder, avocado or oatmeal to hers. […]

Pineapple Coconut Farro

It’s been too long since I’ve made a new breakfast recipe. The nice people of Tuscan Fields sent me some free farro to play with and  I started with a slow cooker breakfast!

Lychee Rosewater Pina Colada

This has been one of those weeks when a cocktail seems like the right thing to make once  I finally get home. Maybe it’s heat coming back or perhaps it’s been too long since I took my last vacation. Since I still have book three to finish up, I can’t just get in my car […]

BBQ Tofu Pepper Pineapple Topping

bbqPizza620

  This recipe is one of the easiest of them all. You can make your own pizza dough or just use English muffins or tortillas. The filling probably takes about 15 minutes to throw together and you can make it a day or two before you want to use it. If you are avoiding soy […]

Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chick’n Chowder

Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chick’n Chowder

I’m so excited! My book, The Vegan Slow Cooker, was released early and many people who pre-ordered at Amazon will get theirs this week! This soup was pretty much an accident. I had no intention of adding pumpkin to my new chick’n chowder. However, I freeze my puréed pumpkin in ice cubes just like I […]

Slow Cooker Pineapple Chick’n

It’s been awhile since I’ve dived whole-heartedly into the slow cooker to make an almost complete dinner. This recipe does require you to cook some rice, but I use my rice cooker, so I can still catch up on writing while the dinner finishes cooking itself. The catalyst for this one was a sad pineapple […]

Slow Cooker Irish Piña Colada Oatmeal – It’s Green and Tastes Great Too!

spinOats

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know I’m a day early, but I wanted to share this oatmeal with you so you can make it on St. Patrick’s for your family. There’s no denying that it’s green enough and there’s no artificial color to be found. The secret ingredient is spinach. Where did the Irish/piña colada connection come from? I knew […]

Slow Cooker Hummingbird Cake Oatmeal – An Oatmeal Cure for the Monday Blues

hummingbirdOats

When nothing but something sweet will do, try some Hummingbird Cake Oatmeal. This is an old Southern cake favorite that has pineapple, banana, and pecans in the cake and is topped with a cream cheese icing. Obviously there’s no dairy in my oatmeal. Instead the icing we use is made from Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, minced pineapple and […]

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Smoked Tofu

I just made another batch of smoked tofu and was itching for a recipe to use it. I saw this recipe for sweet and sour seitan on Learning Vegan’s blog. Yum! I’m on a restricted diet for the next couple of months, so no seitan or brown sugar for me. But Learning Vegan inspired me to make my […]
