Going Lowfat Naturally (Plus Vegan Brownie Recipe)

I’ve been inspired to eat a 100% McDougall friendly vegan diet again.  For the past month, I’ve kept my total fat grams to 10 or less a day.  I’ve added no fat to my foods (such as vegan butter, etc.), but have allowed for small quantities of naturally occurring higher fat foods, such as nuts […]

RECIPE: Vegan Biscuits and Gravy

When I was a kid, I couldn’t stand biscuits and gravy.  My parents thought it was a real treat and raved about it on the rare occasions we had it (usually at a restaurant).  Since I’ve never liked it, I was surprised when I decided to make it a few days ago.  It started when […]

VEGAN RECIPE: Runza Hot Pockets

A delicious and hearty recipe for home or on-the-go food is runzas.  These are originally made with ground beef.  As vegans, we go without the animal.  Here’s our veganized version of this classic recipe.

Vegan Recipe: Harvest Casserole (a.k.a. New Butternut Squash Casserole)

I love butternut squash. It tastes even better with pasta and vegan cheddar and pecans. Yum! I posted a delicious Butternut Squash Recipe last year (click to see). I recently updated my recipe to be slightly different (both are quite delicious).  Either would be a wonderful addition to any of your upcoming holiday meals or […]

Vegan Recipe: Maid-Rite and Cheese Covered Fries (a.k.a. Volcano)

When a vegan gets a craving that involves non-vegan food, what should she do? Well… The other day, my daughters and I were talking about grandparents and one thing led to another and I was recalling a time when my mom and my mom’s dad (my Grandpa) and I went out to eat at Maid-Rite […]

Sauteing withOUT fat or oil

I’ve mentioned here before that in general my family does not use extra oils in cooking (we will eat vegan food at restaurants that has been made with oil, but we try to keep this to a minimum). We’ve found that oil just isn’t necessary for frying, sauteing, or baking. I will admit I purchased […]

Vegan Jambalaya

We love jambalaya. It’s easy to cook and it tastes fantastic. You can throw together a variety of ingredients and it still tastes great. Missing an ingredient or have some extra zucchini you’ve been trying to use up, no problem! The tomatoes are the only crucial ingredient in the mix. We always make a huge […]
