Chewy pumpkin-cranberry bars filled with delicious little chocolatey bits. Yum.
Healthy Breakfast Cookies Recipe I shared a brilliant breakfast over at Once a Month Meals and I just had to share it here, too: Healthy Breakfast Cookies. Lest you think I’ve developed a super duper mega ego, I say brilliant because I adapted the idea from another blogger. Myscha posted What’s Cooking? Breakfast Cookies over at […]
Day 339. Today’s This Week’s Cravings theme is Christmas Baking: Sweets, Treats, Candy and Gift Ideas. I decided I wanted to do cranberry and pistachio muffins for the red and green Christmas theme. And, since I had about 1/4 cup pumpkin puree left in the fridge, I decided to make the recipe vegan. I found […]
Day 332. Happy French Toast Day! Today’s This Week’s Cravings theme is French Toast, Pancakes and Waffles. A few months ago, I found a great kids cookbook at a thrift store for less than $2. The Fairy Godmother Wands French toast: nonstick cooking spray 1 egg 1/3 cup milk 1/2 teaspoon vanilla dash of ground […]
Day 329. After a day of culinary debauchery, we’re going to take a break this evening and have our leftovers mixed into a green leafy salad. I think this will be light and delicious and may put a dent in some of our leftovers. You can do this with just about any leftovers. I’ve used […]
I’m sharing a side dish that can also hold its own as a vegan and vegetarian main dish: Butternut Squash Quinoa Stuffing. I had a beautiful butternut squash in my most recent CSA box and craisins.

This month, I’ll be cooking vegan all week long (instead of only Mondays) in honor of VeganMoFo. Be sure to go check out all the […]

Day 15. I really wanted to test the new beef substitute on something in which only real beef is usually used. So, I went with something I usually hate. Meatloaf. Yuck. It’s so gross, meat and ketchup with some eggs and bread crumbs mixed into it. Disgusting. But, I found a more delicious-sounding version—cherry blue […]
OK, so I noticed this year (because I have two babies and I pay attention to this stuff now) that canned cranberry sauce is chock full of high fructose corn syrup and other nasty stuff. So, first off I made a Food Network recipe on the stovetop. But, it’s kind of a pain to do […]
