Crisp Fruited Salad with Maple-Yogurt Dressing 1

You don’t eat meat or dairy?  What DO you eat?  Even though it has now been about a year, I am still asked this question regularly. Folks still think that when animal food are cut out, that there is nothing to eat or whatever is left is cardboard! Does this salad look like cardboard?  Heck […]

Wine Down Wednesday with Sweet Potato and Tahini Burgers with Citrus, Mango and Avocado Salsa

Welcome back to Wine Down Wednesday where I review a vegan dish paired with two different wines. To pair wines with a meatless dish we must look at the spices and main flavors of the recipe. For an ideal pairing we look for wines that that compliment Sweet Potato and Tahini Burgers Citrus, Mango and Avocado Salsa we look […]


Baked Monkey Oats 1

Baked oats are so satisfying that I made it again this morning. This recipe is very similar to the last but uses fresh bananas……next time I might put a bit of ground flax seed on top as well. YUM! The nutrition info below is listed for either one or two servings, depending on how hungry […]

Looking back, I remember coming across a recipe on the blog Closet Cooking; the curried honey Dijon roasted chicken in particular was both where I learned about food blogs and why I started blogging.  (Just […]


Fall Panzanella with Kale and Cranberry Walnut Bread
