Yes, RAW.  As in not cooked.  And completely delicious. I am participating in a 30-day raw vegan food challenge.  More on that later. This recipe is a breeze to make and just as delicious in the dead of winter as it would be in the heat of summer.  Since it is not mashed potatoes, it ... Read more

Nov 16, 2011 Main Dish, Meatless Monday, NOW YOU'RE COOKIN': FROM SCRATCH, Vegetarian , , , 0 Comments

This isn’t much of a recipe, but as you know I don’t really follow recipes so it’s hard for me to come up with one.  I primarily cook by taste and feel, letting the dish develop as I go. Homemade mac ‘n cheese isn’t hard by any means and it tastes way better than that ... Read more

Feb 28, 2011 Main Dish, Meatless Monday , , 4 Comments

This is one of those meals that I make often without following a recipe.  It’s so easy and totally adaptable.  Use whatever you have on hand: chicken, beef, vegetables, potatoes, no potatoes, different sauces, whatever.  I chose veggies and basil cream sauce for Meatless Monday. Start by sautéing onions/peppers/celery in two tablespoons butter in a ... Read more

I’m still cooking from my pantry as part of the Clean Out the Cupboards Challenge, so for this Meatless Monday I pulled inspiration from the wonderful world of www. I don’t recall where I saw this recipe {if it was you, thank you!}, but somewhere in my wandering I came across a post about Lasagna ... Read more

I love soup. If I were on death row, my final meal request would be soup with a big glass of cold milk.  Perfection. My favorite soup of soups is Minestrone.  Light, yet hearty and loaded with veggies. For as much I love soup, I rarely make my own.  Other than potato and chili, but ... Read more

NOW YOU’RE COOKIN': MEATLESS MONDAY {VEGETARIAN PASTY}

By

Nov 14, 2010 Main Dish, Meatless Monday, Vegetarian , , 12 Comments

The inspiration for this dish came after Mister and I took a mini-holiday to Mackinac Island. While driving along the coast of Lake Michigan it seemed about every two miles we would see a sign for pasties and fudge.  Eventually we succumbed to the roadside marketing.  Mister had a pasty, I had the fudge.  Neither ...

I am still cooking from the Pillsbury Pot Pies & Casseroles 2010 magazine, albeit using none of the products they suggest.  You’re probably tired of me talking about it, but then that’s a perk of having your own blog.  You get to talk about whatever fancies your imaginations, as much and as often as you ...

Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays

Sep 29, 2010 GREEN YOUR: KITCHEN {FOOD - EAT LESS MEAT}, Meatless Monday, MIDNIGHT MANIAC MEATLESS MONDAYS, Sustainable Living , , , 11 Comments

bout a year ago I started doing Meatless Mondays. During that time the majority of our meals became meatless and Meatless Monday lost it’s focus. I guess it’s a good thing when cooking vegetarian just becomes habit and you don’t have to set aside a special day for it, but I would like to regain ... Read more
