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

What’s For Dessert: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, GF, VG

I’ve been making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies since 1987. This is the first year, however, I’ve made a gluten free version! I’m so happy that it worked out, because these cookies have become part of our family’s holiday traditions. I invented the original recipe based on a cookie purchased at Smith’s grocery store. (I don’t

It is a combination of raw cacao paste, raw cacao butter, vanilla powder, pure maple syrup, coconut nectar, walnuts and hemp seeds. Many commercial chocolates give

What’s For Dessert: Cranberry-Apple Pie

Our Thanksgiving dinner included a yummy Cranberry-Apple Pie for dessert. This was fairly easy to make, starting with a frozen pie shell. You could purchase a commercial GF or wheat pie crust at your favorite market, or use one that you’ve made ahead. In any case, the pie crust should be thawed but cold before

It’s A Party! Herbed Chezee

We call this stuff “chezee”, since it’s not cheese, but it’s a vegan version! It’s comparable to a fresh, soft goat cheeze, mixed with herbs and can be used in recipes in place of it. This is really easy to make, since the nuts can soak on the counter and once that’s done, it only

What’s For Snack: It Tastes Like Chicken!

Or mozzarella sticks… Doesn’t matter what you compare it to, I just call it “M-M-M Good!” This is pretty simple to make, and you can use any type of tofu, except the silken varitey. If you make it from soft tofu, it often reminds adults of deep-fried mozzarella. Kids tend to like it made from

In The Kitchen: Vegan Mozzarella

In keeping with my make-it-from-scratch theme for my pizza, I opted to make vegan mozzarella cheese from scratch. I cheated a bit, because I used the recipe from this book: The book is “Artisan Vegan Cheese”, by Miyoko Schinner. The recipe is on page 44, and it’s called “Meltable Mozzarella”.
