Last week I promised you book reviews and here they are this week. Better late than never right? I’m not sure why but my to do list is growing quicker than I can do anything! Today I want to share one of Joni Newman’s and Celine Steen’s books, The Hearty Vegan. I was fortunate to […]

Slow Cooker Tofurky Links

noFeatured

I was asked about cooking tofurkys in the slow cooker and wanted to pass these recipe links on to you guys too. Some have interesting glazes, other different veggies and spices. One does use a quorn roast, which isn’t vegan but the cooking concept is the same. The main idea is to use enough broth to […]

The winner is Heather who posted this: I use a variety of things as sweeteners, from sugar (though I always use less than called for), maple syrup, molasses, and occasionally honey. I don’t like things baked with Splenda because it tastes odd to me. I look forward to trying NuStevia, though! Heather please email your […]

Saturday we had our annual Gothic dinner party and I have to say it was our best one yet! Everyone brought super yummy treats that they made themselves, and of course Cheryl transformed the house into an amazingly spooky haunted house. I took today off work, but I’m trying to decide if I should be […]

Vegan Red Beans and Rice for 2

red beans and sausage

You’ve probably noticed that I’m trying to come up with more savory recipes for the 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cookers. I live in a two person household with a slew of wonderful (and demanding) companion animals. I know I’m not the only one without a large family. By making a smaller amount for […]

Vegan Autumn Lentil Soup

This soup started with the gorgeous lentils above. I found them in a bulk bin at Whole Foods and fell in love. I knew that the red lentils wouldn’t stay red, but I had decided that the mixture would still look like autumn leaves after being cooked. Wrong! I also added these beautiful purple potatoes […]

Vegan Sin-cinnati Chili for Your Halloween Dinner

sin-chili

Since I taunted you with Halloween yesterday I thought I’d give you something to make for your Halloween dinner party. Cincinnati chili is similar to a regular meaty chili except it has unusual spices that you see more in pumpkin pie than an all-American stew. Traditionally it’s a meat chili that has kidney beans as an optional topping […]

Vegan ‘Meaty’ Chili You Make From Scratch, but Is as Easy as Opening a Can!

It’s getting close to my favorite holiday, Halloween. This weekend we started decorating the house for our annual Gothic dinner party. We have over 8 big plastic bins chock full of goodies, so it takes days to get everything in place. So far we are about 1/2 way there. Of course, once the house is […]
