It’s sunny, it’s hot, it’s busy, and it’s…..blueberry season! The farm opened yesterday for u-pickers and since this farm girl got a little pickin’ in early, I have a quick and tasty blueberry crisp recipe for you. There is however, one problem with this recipe; you might need to double it! My husband was like, ‘why didn’t you make more??!!!’ ‘Well, honey, you know my blog? Not everyone reading it wants to eat a ton of blueberry crisp in one sitting!’ But, he has a point. So if you have a big crowd (or just a very hungry little family like me!) you might want to double it! 😉
Just cannot wait for you all to try this potato salad! I mean, there is so much to love. Rich, flavorful, satisfying, and dare I say it? Original. Maybe I should go and google vegan curried potato tofu salad. It’s probably out there somewhere. But truthfully, this is amazing!! Hubby pronounced it almost perfect. He wanted more pickles. 😉 (See me doing a little jig!) I mean, he actually thought something with curry in it was yummy? Practically miraculous! (Btw, I upped the pickles in the recipe – I think it’s enough now! 😉 )
Those little green beans in the picture? Yeah, they are edamame!! This summer salad is one of my hubby’s oft requested dishes and I think I know why!! 😉 If a salad could be manly, this one is!! Immature soybeans that haven’t had a chance to harden, edamame is packed with protein, iron, and calcium. Available in most grocery stores in the frozen section, you can easily purchase already shelled/cooked edamame for this quick and tasty salad. (We usually buy ours from Trader Joe’s and I was afraid my husband was going to empty the store’s stock last time he got some – yeah he loves this salad!)
This recipe brings back childhood memories. We called it ‘Orange French Toast’. And I liked it just as much today when my kiddos were eating it for their breakfast as I did when I was their age (that just seems like decades ago – oh, actually it was!). I guess some good things never get old (wish I wasn’t! 😉 ). The really great thing about it is what it doesn’t have: refined sugar, added oil, dairy or eggs. What it DOES have is even better: raw cashews, a banana, medjool dates, and 100% O.j. concentrate.
If you’ve been following my blog posts, you’ll notice that this recipe is similar to my last post about breakfast hash browns. Besides having to admit that I do LOVE potatoes in most forms, and that I do eat potatoes
at least once several times a week, I must tell you that these are really a side-dish for my next post. Ever heard of a burger and fries? 😉 Don’t hold your breath, but do get ready…to… cook!!
This Cauliflower is a favorite staple at our house. The kids just gobble this. And it’s SO easy. I mean embarrassingly easy. 😉 Your guests are sure to ask how you made it. You can just keep them in suspense, ok? Smile and nod…. Continue Reading “Easy Cheesy Baked Vegan Cauliflower”
Other than the fact that I can’t seem to spell ‘barbecue’ properly (thankful for autocorrect spelling 😉 ) I simply cannot imagine a more sumptuous barbecue tofu sandwich! I mean tofu really transforms itself well!! Slice it, coat it, bake it, and it has that perfect chewy texture that is so perfect in a BLT!
It’s spring. (Someplace!) Here it is really
spring still rainy, cold, dreary. Wait, am I depressing you? It’s not that bad – only sometimes. 😉 Really, I just needed a bowl of this tasty soup to warm up my insides and make me a real believer that winter is over. 🙂 Thankfully, although my family may not always understand my need for sunshine, they certainly share a love of this soup! So gather your goods and get choppin’ friends! In 20 min you’ll be savoring our favorite Vegan Corn Chowder…
I think I’m just a bit of a cake snob. I really don’t like cake if it’s too sweet, too wet, too dry, too crumbly. You know what I’m talking about? All the too‘s. But this carrot cake is none of that. It’s just right. Really. There are several secrets to this and I’m going to tell you all about them…. 😉
We all need a in-a-hurry muffin recipe for a light supper, breakfast extra, or snack. To be honest, this was my third batch of muffins in two days. Yeah, I was planning them for something, but the kids and I ate them all last night. 😉 Oh, Nana was here too. Maybe we can blame it all on her. 😉 J.k. Anyway, these are good and quick and really pretty guilt free, so I made more today!!! 😉 Only a quarter cup of granulated sugar and the same of oil? Let’s make them
every day often!
