vegan curry house jalfrezi

This red, spicy curry is one of my favorites. I love creamy yellow curry, and bright, fresh green curry too. But there’s just something about this eggplant and tomato based curry that puts it over the top for me. I like yellow curry with potatoes, green curry with noodles, and red curry with rice. That’s…

birthday cake popcorn

One of my friends gave me some yummy, gourmet “birthday cake” flavored popcorn for Christmas and it was SO incredible I was determined to create a copycat version. This tastes like funfetti birthday cake! It’s buttery, and the white chocolate, flavorings, and sprinkles make it taste like frosting. This popcorn is fast and easy to…

best vegan cornbread

I love making a big pan of cornbread to go with soups, chilis, and BBQ. I never make a small pan because leftover cornbread makes an amazing breakfast. I slather it with vegan butter and pure maple syrup! Heaven. Another yummy topping for cornbread is this cinnamon maple butter. Maybe give it a try the…

general tso’s crispy tofu

Who doesn’t crave some tasty Chinese takeout from time to time? We have a couple places in town that have great options, but they don’t deliver. And sometimes I just want to make these delicacies my way in my own kitchen instead of having to bundle up and make the trek to the restaurant to…

bang bang super crunch cauliflower wings

For those of you who have already tried my super crunchy cauliflower “wings”, I have a treat for you! Same wings, different sauce! It’s soooooo good and super addictive, so double the recipe for the cauliflower and sauce if you’re making this for more than three people, or if you want leftovers. These are even…

vegan crock pot creamy baked spaghetti

Whoa. This was fan-freaking-tastic, and so easy it’s going to blow your mind. Ya know all those crazy, cream-cheese-laden, “million dollar spaghetti” recipes out there that no human can eat without gaining 10 lb.? This isn’t that. It IS delicious and creamy though. I came up with it myself, and it’s going in the “meals…

collard greens wraps

Hello, Lovelies! I spent the day with my daughter, her husband, and my grand girls yesterday. Me and my daughter made collard green wraps and they turned out sooooo good, and so ridiculously pretty, I just had to share the recipe! These healthy little collard green veggie wraps are actually really easy to prepare. Just…

vegan “beyond meat” swedish meatballs

We made Swedish meatballs for Christmas and they turned out so completely amazing I could hardly believe it! I was a little worried that Beyond Meat wouldn’t translate to Swedish meatballs, and took another risk by not doing a test run prior to Christmas day. Everyone, including the meat eaters, loved these meatballs! I was…

crispy italian fries {air fryer recipe}

So have you bought an air fryer yet? I’m in love with mine. Once you get the hang of using one you can create crispy, delicious foods that have virtually no oil in them. Junk food without the junk. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a pile of crispy french fries every day? With an air…

soft brownie cookies {brookies}

It’s official. I’m on a chocolate kick. I haven’t really made anything other than chocolate treats for Christmas this year and we only have a few days to go. I have plans for making more stuff, but we’ll see. Who else makes grand plans for cooking, baking, crafting, and decorating EVERY year, and ends up…
