Our First RVO – A Random Vegan Object!

Today is a new type of post for the Vegan Taste and Madelyn Eats. I wanted to create a new category called RVO, short for random vegan object! This is a way for Jason and I to go out into the world and find fun, weird, or just random vegan objects and share them with […]

More Soup? Yes! The Infamous Potato Chorizo Chowder

 Ok, so at some point I need to post something here that is not soup, but today’s creation was too good to not share. This is one of those recipes that I pull out for one of two reasons: either I have meat eaters coming over or I am just hungry. That is because this […]

Spring Vegetable Soup, or GIVE ME ALL THE VEGGIES!!

I love a good soup. Many of you are not surprised in the least by this. There are many reasons for this. One is because I have an ulcer. It gets better, it gets worse, but raw fibrous vegetables can be that much harder for my body to break down. Cook those same vegetables in […]

Stawberry Shortcake, or, Going Back Home

They say that you can’t go home again. I would love to argue. Home is where the heart is, and my heart holds extremely fond memories of my loved ones. Most of my early memories I look back on are of my mom. She remains the strongest person I know, and I have always looked […]

Flax Chips – Raw and Baked Versions

So it has been a bit since I posted! I went to Syracuse, NY to teach a cooking class. Man, was it cold! I thought I would walk a mile to a vegan café but the temperature dropped to 15 degrees. I got food and a hot tea there, and on the walk back it […]

Peach Mango Pops with Recipe!

You know how in Game of Thrones the Starks say “Winter is coming.” It is both knowledge and a warning. In Arizona, we say “Summer is coming.”At least I do. Already it is over 80 degrees almost every day. Since I have a blast furnace burning away in my middle (aka, ‘the baby’) I have […]

Coconut Lime Ice Pops with Recipe!

Hi everyone! While a lot of the nation is under a huge blanket of ice, it is warming up quickly in Arizona. Here, it has been in the low 80’s all week. However, being pregnant, it feels warmer. Therefore, I have been craving healthy fruit ice pops. I bought a few, but then realized that […]

My Mediterranean Wrap Recipe, and a Little Update

It’s been a week. We all have those weeks, the ones that get away. The morning sickness is minimal and I am now again functional (which is great). Then I taught a class, we went on a day trip for Valentines Day, and we had a memorial service for a family member who passed away […]

Random Thoughts and Almond Oatmeal with Blueberries

Last night, I caught the edge of a cold or flu or germs just took over my body.  I ached, was exhausted, my throat hurt, and scarily, I started running a small fever. Right now I cannot take any cold medicine. I started drinking cold liquid to cool my core off and stay hydrated, and […]
