Vegan Oil-Free Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

These might be my new favorite cookie.  I know.  I’ve said that before.  Can anyone have just one favorite cookie?  No.  That’s just not fair. We must have an assortment of favorite cookies, right? I know you are looking for some oil-free recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth.  So, after hearing from many of you… Continue Reading

“Oven Dehydrated” Kale Chips (no dehydrator needed!)

  I’ve had a problem.  A kale chip problem.  I have been buying too many packages of dehydrator-made-deliciously-expensive kale chips. Why not make them myself?  Well, I don’t have a dehydrator, which truly makes the best kale chips.  I’ve made them in the oven before, but guess what?  They lose that gorgeous vibrant green color… Continue Reading

Here is an easy, cool refreshing drink for your long, hot summer days!  This drink first appeared in “eat, drink & be vegan“, and I have given you a few ‘extras’ for variety in today’s post. This “Mango Sassy” is my adaptation of the Indian drink ‘Mango Lassi’.  Instead of using soy or another non-dairy… Continue Reading

Vegan Burgers: Mushroom Pecan Sliders

I had some fun facebook this morning, playing a guessing game with this photo.  And, Dana quickly identified them as my “Mushroom Pecan Burgers, Take II” from LTEV. Why ‘take II’?  I first created this recipe for my first cookbook, The Everyday Vegan.  They were delicious, but a touch delicate and best suited for stuffing… Continue Reading

Vegetarian Summerfest 2012!

I’m back from a whirlwind week at Summerfest!  Right now I’m recalibrating, trying to figure out what time zone I’m in and what day it is!  (I owe many of you e-mails, I know, please bear with me.) But, it was a wonderful experience and so let’s hit some highlights! Summerfest is run by the… Continue Reading
