Vegan Doughnuts! OMG!!

Yesterday we had an unexpected surprise. While I was getting my latest batch of prenatal vitamins at Whole Foods, and the salad dressing I was craving that day, I spotted two words that separate hold little meaning. Combined, these words made my head snap to the side to confirm I had seen what I thought […]

Easy Hummus Wraps

So where have I been? It is 120 degrees here in Phoenix and I am very, very pregnant. I really was unprepared for how much the pregnancy kick my booty – mentally and physically. I have managed to keep up with my cooking classes and most of our local catering but The Vegan Taste has […]

Eating to Beat the Heat – Green Couscous with recipe

Summer is here. For some of you, in far flung places, this is a time to be outside, play and have fun. Here in Arizona it is 110 degrees already. Yes, 110 degrees. I understand that we have air conditioning but it strains to make it tolerable. Add to this the fact that I am […]

Sweet Curry Tofu Salad Sandwich recipe

Has it really been THAT long since I posted? I am so embarrassed. ;< Now that is out of the way, I should tell you why. My mom’s move was physically hard on both of us. She shielded me from the worst of it, but it drained us both. I am not that hard to […]

Orange Sunrise Smoothie – A Cool Refreshing Pick-me-up

I am in the process of helping my mom move. I had no idea how physically and emotionally draining this would be, honestly. My mom has lived in her current home for more than 10 years. It was where we fled after her marriage to David went sour. He got our other house, mom got […]

Mexican ‘Pizza’

I can see Jason cringing that the words Mexican and Pizza are associated with this dish. I have to explain. When I was a teenager, I loved Taco Bell. This was back in my muggle days when I ate anything. I shutter now to think about what I ate, but the Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell […]

Colorful Egg-Less Salad

When I was a kid, my mom and I would carefully crack the hardboiled eggs we were about to color. Where other kids dunked eggs and were done, I would soak mine for 30 minutes or more. The day after Easter, mom would start the tradition of the week of colored egg salad sandwiches! I […]

Traveling While Vegan – Englewood, NJ

The subtitle for this blog is “There and Back Again, a Hobbit’s Food Travel”   So this is not much of a vegan food story as it is a travel log, but it is still worth sharing! I started my travel off by getting to the airport early. The night before I made hearty sandwiches […]

Strawberries and Cream

I love food shopping. For me, it is relaxing, inspiring and I always find something that I love. When I went to Trader Joes this morning I found the most perfect looking strawberries! I needed these in my life, and then in my tummy. However, I didn’t want the shortcake this time. I just got […]

Traditions Worth Passing Down and an RVO

I am super excited. When you leave your parent’s home, you get a chance to keep those traditions or create your own. My mom and I have a tradition of her buying me a new pet or plant for Easter. Many times, when I was young the pet and plant would rotate. One year, I got […]
