The first trial was fabulous, so I will be finalizing that recipe for you soon… Continue Reading

Hummus Tortilla Pizzas: How-To and Hummus/Topping Suggestions

I’ve always loved thin-crust pizzas. Just as I am very fond (understatement) of sauces and dips, I enjoy a thin crust pizza because it lets all the flavors and the textures of the toppings shine through! Sure, there are times for that comforting dough-y pizza, but I’ll choose a crispy, thin crust brimming with tasty… Continue Reading

Vegan Travel Tips, My Trip To Newfoundland, and Hummus Recipes!

If I’ve seemed a little distant the past few weeks, it’s because I was – literally. We took a family trip back to Newfoundland to visit family with our girls. The last time we visited was 6 years ago, before our youngest was born. It’s a day-long trip with a 4 1/2 hour time difference. Some… Continue Reading

Mexican Bean Soup with Chipotle Avocado Cream and Guacamole Tip (vegan and gluten-free)

When you open a cookbook, a recipe may “jump out” because of its title, its reputation (we know how blogging can hype a recipe long before a cookbook reaches bookshelves), or of course because of its photos.  With the volume of recipes in LTEV, I almost wish I had written two separate cookbooks so that… Continue Reading

So, the last few months you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to. I’ve been posting plenty of recipes, but haven’t been talking much about personal things or our family.

Chickpea and Artichoke “Bliss in a Dish”: One-Pot Wonder (vegan and gluten-free)

(Update: Those with a sweet tooth, scroll on down to bottom of post for news of a NEW dessert e-cookbook!) Naming recipes is not something that always comes naturally to me.  I often describe components in the dish, or try to convey how the dish makes me feel.  A few (just a few!) of the… Continue Reading
