I’m slowly but surely “vegan-izing” all my old recipes. Slowly because I rarely think about the meals I used to cook. Not that they weren’t good, but I have absolutely no cravings or hankerings after any of the meat and dairy laden fare that once came out of my kitchen.

Hubbie, on the other hand, does occasionally talk about the wonderful Carbonaras and yummy Frittatas I produced that became firm favorites in my extensive food repertoire. Of course, he would never really want to go back to our old omnivorous ways but there is a certain nostalgia for comfort food that has brought you joy in the past.

Curries are a mainstay in my kitchen. When in doubt, I bust out a curry and all is right in my world. Hubby emphatically agrees. Whether it be a coconut curry, a tomato based one or just a simply spiced affair, curries have long been my salvation when I need something quick, tasty, and relatively painless.

Toasted Burritos are for lazy days. They’re also for tasty days. Minimum effort, maximum taste.

This burrito is also an effort to convert all those tofu naysayers (you know who you are). Think tofu is bland, tasteless and just a bit weird? Think again because believe it or not tofu can be delicious, full of flavor and packed with protein – good for vegans, good for veggies, good for everyone. Tofu is a magnificent alternative to meat, fish and cheese, which is why it is the perfect counterpart to any Meat Free Monday dish. Read More

While I don’t have a massive sweet tooth, my afternoon pick-me-ups usually come in the form of something sugary. Since I’m trying to limit my cane sugar intake, I’m relying on fruit (frozen, dried, and fresh) to do the trick.

I’ve made so many variations of these raw balls that I’ve actually lost track of all the many and varied combos, but what I do know is that shredded coconut works exceptionally well in these sweet and chewy mouthfuls. Read More

Would you just take a look at those brownies! Extremely fudgy brownie goodness, sans sugar and totally vegan – can it get any better?

Without a doubt, these are my best brownie effort yet. I combined the best elements from two of my favorite brownie recipes and this was the result. It doesn’t even contain any plant milk. None, what so ever! Read More
