What’s For Dinner: Squilly

It’s cold outside. Cold and windy! There’s snow on the ground, ice on the roads, and it’s still coming down. Well, maybe not where I live, but winter comfort food is what we all tend to want this time of year. So this is what we had for dinner last night. We call this “Squilly”,

What’s For Dinner: Berry Delish Salad

It’s flu season. Where I live, it isn’t really bad yet, but I saw a report on the news the other day that said it has hit some other areas pretty hard. While just about everyone gets the flu once in a while, the best way to get over it quickly is to make sure

Published on November 1, 2012 in Dinner, Food, Recipe

I love it when the weather cools off and I can have hot soups for lunch or dinner! This soup is quick and easy to make, once the veggies are prepped. You could do all of that the night before, or in the morning before heading off to work, then it’s quick to make at

What’s For Dinner: GF Flat Bread

I have been mostly without bread products of any kind for months. The problem is that most of the gluten free commercial bread products that I like are not vegan. They contain eggs. In particular, I like the Canyon Bakehouse. I’ve tried their Hamburger Buns and their Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Both are really good. I

Published on October 4, 2012 in Dinner, Food, Recipe, Vegan

This is one of my favorite chili recipes because you can use it in tamales, as I’m doing this week, as a taco filling or even eaten with a salad as a main dish! The main protein source is lentils and kidney beans. The lentils are cooked down a bit to give it a creamy

Tamale Week Day 2: Alternative Chick Pea Masa

Published on October 2, 2012 in Dinner, Food, Recipe, Vegan

Not everyone wants a corn masa for their tamales. In some part of South America, it isn’t even traditional to use corn for either the masa or the wrappers! A common alternative is to use chick peas. An alternative wrapper is banana leaves. I’ve given my version of chick pea masa an even different twist:

What’s For Dinner: Collard Wraps

This week in our Bountiful Baskets we got Collard Greens. HUH? Collard Greens? I have no clue what to do with those! The only thing that comes to mind is that boiled, nasty, bitter Southern dish that usually also includes ham or bacon! DH says, “You said we need to eat lots of dark, leafy
