Spiced Apple Cranberry Muffins

This is the first time I’ve made this recipe, and I was surprised at how light and fluffy the muffins turned out. If you’ve every tried making a gluten-free, vegan baked goods, then you know the struggle that can be. This recipe, however, is a winner. I’m still playing with the flavor a bit –…

Vegan Pizza

As I have stated in prior posts, my wife and I purchase very little pre-made foods. Two of the exceptions to that rule are; Daiya cheese, and Trader Joe’s gluten-free pizza crusts. The crusts come in three different styles, including the one pictured below. Though we can make our own gluten-free crusts, it’s just easier…

Chana Masala with Butternut Squash

What do you do when you really want a certain recipe, but you don’t have the ingredients? Well, if you are anything like me a few years back, you just move on and make something else. Or you complain to your wife and hope she makes something even better. This recipe came out of my…

VGF Buckwheat Waffles

One of the greatest things about waffles is how many different ways you can make them. Literally, there must be dozens of variations, and that’s before you start to add in the ways to top them. This is the recipe my wife and I typically make, because we like the flavor the buckwheat flour adds,…

Slow Cooker Red Curry Lentils

One of the most common reasons I hear from people for not switching to a more healthy diet, is time. No one seems to have the time these days to prepare meals from scratch. And yet, the fatigue and illnesses we feel from running at the speeds we do, day in and day out, can…

VGF Rotini with Spinach and Artichoke Hearts

Making lunch from scratch for just one person everyday can seem tedious at times, especially if you seem to be making the same thing, day after day. That’s why I love to create, to cook completely without a recipe. I just grab what I think will go together, and start to cook. Sometimes what I…

Sage Garlic Cashew Cream

When my wife and I first became vegan, we promised each other two things. First, we would never go back. We considered that there might have days when we had to eat outside of our lifestyle due to there being no options, but those have been few and very far between. One of those days…

VGF Lentil Tacos

No, it’s not Taco Tuesday. But sometimes you make too many tortillas the week before, and now you need to use them, but in a different way than last week. I mean, you don’t want to eat the same stuff every day, right? Well, unless it’s doughnuts. Or chocolate. Okay, I’d eat chocolate doughnuts every…

Quinoa Burgers with Radish and Onion Slaw

I don’t know about you, but I get kind of tired putting the same old toppings on a burger. Lettuce. Pickle. Tomato. Blah, blah, blah. Today, I thought, since I had some leftover Quinoa Burgers in the fridge, it would be a good time to try something different. Not only did the outcome taste amazing,…
