Chocolate Minty Mug Cake

Meals in mugs fascinate me. Probably because I work with college students who don’t always have access to a kitchen. This is an adaption to a recipe I had found. I am not a huge fan of using a microwave on a regular basis, but sometimes it is all people have. The microwave make this quick…

Simple Banana Bread

I have tried maybe 6 or so recipes for banana bread over the years. As my lifestyle has changed to being plant based I have learned to make changes to recipes so I can still use them. After eating this version of banana bread people always ask for the recipe. It really is that good. It is…

What is on my Reading List

I read as much as I breathe. I have a kindle. I am a kindle unlimited member. Saves me a ton of money. I still buy some books though. Sometimes buy a book on kindle, on audible, and in paper form. You have to be a really good find to make it to the paper…

BBQ Cauliflower Burger Pinterest Success

I have been experimenting with cauliflower recipes. I find it very interesting the amount of plant based things you can make using cauliflower. Many have probably seen making pizza crust using cauliflower. It is really good. I just struggle with the effort needed to squeeze out all the water from the steam cauliflower. Helps build…

Lentil Taco “Meat” / Lentil Sloppy Joe

Texture Texture Texture. I have learned a lot about texture when it comes to eating plant based. Things that I used to eat came be simulated in plant form. I made a burger out of slabs of cauliflower yesterday. What? I know. Crazy! I love testing out new recipes. I love it even more when…

Oat and Banana Cookies with Date Chocolate Sauce

I saw a recipe for Oat and Banana cookies in the spirit of valentine’s day. Thought these would be cute to make for my sweet who loves treat. He is not a huge fan of chocolate, but plant based chocolate things tend to be the right kind of chocolate flavor for him. He does love…

Snow Day Snow Cones

I grew up with snow cones, Rita’s Water Ice, slushies, and icees. I have always loved a flavored syrup with some ice. I would take that over ice cream any day. Sadly I have no idea how the syrup is made for these creations. I do know that you can make your own for your…

Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies website here Recipes takes about 30-40 minutes to be done. This includes all the chopping….

Quick Food(s)

I think we all get to the point in a day where we just are too tired, annoyed, busy…. Many of those times we let what we eat be touched by those feelings or realities. I do believe you can be too busy or caught up to eat. When I get into a craft project….

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Black bean and sweet potato enchiladas from @thepurplecarrotct The filling tasted delish because I had to taste it before rolling them up. I also added cinnamon to sweet potato while they were roasting. Tastes yummy. My little soap box moment. I have no professional backing when it comes to eats. I just know the success…
