Recipe: Spinach Herb Pistachio Pesto

Summer is winding down. Already I’m feeling blue! I’m a summer girl, so it’s hard for me to say farewell to the warm weather – SUNSHINE (vitamin D!) – abundant summer fruits and vegetables – and herbs. One of my cold-weather coping mechanisms is to batch and freeze pesto at the end of summer… for… Continue Reading

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

So, why not have some fun with it?  Use different beans, different nut/seed butters, and different seasonings?  A perfect example of taking hummus in a new direction is… Continue Reading

Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip (without the junk)

If you have LTEV, you’re probably well aware of my love for all things saucy and dippy! I have a whole chapter devoted to them in that book. Indeed, I often say I’m saucy. Just don’t call me dippy. And, I do believe I have made some form of artichoke dip or spread in each… Continue Reading
