Vegan Brunch Bagels

During the week, it’s too chaotic in our house to all sit down and have breakfast together. Anyone with small children understand how difficult it is to get them to sit down and eat. And, if you get to sit down and eat, then you are one lucky parent! So, on the weekends when everyone […]

Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

I have made Shepherd’s Pie several times in the last few years. To be honest, it has never come out right, which is a shame since it’s a meal that I’ve always liked. The whole “meat” and potatoes thing still appeals to me. I may not want the animal, but I still like the flavor […]

“Eggs” Florentine

Baked Beans

Last week I had a sudden craving for baked beans and then I realized that I haven’t had them since going vegan in 2008! I’ve never found baked beans in the can that didn’t have bacon (or pork of some kind) in it. So, I decided that I would try to find a recipe that […]

Yellow Split Pea Soup

When I was a teenager I had my first experience with Ethiopian food. It was an experience unlike anything I’d had before! I had gone with my mother and one of her friends to a local Ethiopian restaurant. I remember we sat on the floor on pillows and there wasn’t any utensils on the table, […]
