cheesy veggie nuggets

Ohmygoodness! I was craving McDonald’s chicken nuggets a few days ago when my daughter and her boyfriend brought some home to enjoy with a movie. You have to understand, I never ate chicken nuggets even when I did eat meat, but for some darn reason I couldn’t get them out of my head. Sooooo, I…

mushroom walnut burger

I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect Vegetarian/Vegan burger, and I think it’s finally happened. There are a couple others I love too, but this one is my favorite. It’s so delicious, and so good for you, you can eat a burger every day and not feel guilty. I started by using Mark…

big vegan buddha bowl

This is so fabulous and filling! It’s a fun recipe too! Make the different parts of the bowl, line them up on the counter “bar” style, and let everyone choose their own ingredients, sauces, and toppings. Use vegan ingredients to make this truly vegan, or if you’re not concerned about that, add a little goat…

choc-oat chip peanut butter banana cookies

Okay. These cookies are too good to be true. That doesn’t happen very often in the land where something is: egg free, gluten free, and dairy free. They’re super soft, chewy, and delicious. They’re loaded with dark chocolate (which we all know is health food.) They’re pretty high in protein for a cookie because of…

tempeh reuben {vegetarian}

I made this delicious, vegetarian tempeh reuben sandwich for myself on St. Patrick’s Day. I loved every yummy bite, and I didn’t miss the corned beef one little bit! Tempeh is a delicious, versatile, fermented soy bean cake that is wonderful in so many ways. I think of it as the chicken of the vegetarian…

kenny rogers mayonnaise carrot cake

My favorite recipe for carrot cake can be found in a little cookbook called “Cooking With Kenny Rogers.” It’s a collection of yummy recipes featuring Dole pineapple. Dole and Kenny collaborated to make this fun cookbook, and every recipe I’ve tried so far has been delicious! This cake is amazingly rich, moist, and delicious. It’s…

easy cheesy bean burritos {vegetarian}

I’ve been focusing on eating a more plant-based diet these days. I have to say, I am LOVING the way it makes me feel. I was a vegetarian (and yes, even a vegan) many years ago, so this isn’t my first rodeo. It makes me so happy that there are so many more foods and…

grandma’s creamy mac & cheese veggie soup

Who doesn’t love a cozy bowl of creamy, cheesy soup on a cold winter day? I dreamed up this soup because I was craving creamy veggie soup and mac & cheese at the same time. This soup is the best of both worlds. It’s extremely easy to prepare, and there’s a good chance you have…

{3 minute} chocolate chip peanut butter banana mug muffin

This ooey, gooey, chocolaty, peanut-buttery muffin only takes 3 minutes to make from start to finish (once you have all your ingredients gathered.) It’s a great recipe for college students, after school snacks, coffee breaks, tea time, and busy mornings! You’re going to love how delicious and easy this is! Butter a large, microwave-safe mug.…

homemade nut goodie candy bars

Pearson’s Nut Goodie has been my favorite candy bar for as long as I can remember. Well, that’s not entirely true. Pearson’s used to offer a candy bar called the Seven Up Bar that was even better, but they stopped making them. I can’t imagine why. It was a bar with seven different cream filling…
