Green Chile Cheesy Sauce

Green Chile Cheesy Sauce

Every vegan home cook needs a solid cheesy sauce that they can use for everything from nachos to burgers to pasta or even as a stand-alone dip. This is that sauce. We enjoyed it most recently over a Mexican Lasagna (recipe coming soon). Best part is […]

French-Style Baguette

French-Style Baguette

Though I usually go the easier route and just pick up baguettes in the bakery, occasionally I do enjoy baking the bread from scratch. If you’ve never made your own French bread, I recommend giving it a shot. It’s really very simple! All it takes […]

Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots

Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots

Leek and potato soup.  Whether you add the carrots or don’t (they do add a nice pop of color), you just can’t beat this type of soup, especially on a cold and rainy day like the one we’re having here today. These are the days […]

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Confession: I’ve fallen into a bit of a junk food snacking rut over the last few weeks. Is it my imagination or are the snack food aisles at the supermarket really so much better this time of year? I may have gotten a little carried […]

Vegetable Stew

Vegetable Stew

This hearty vegan stew definitely hits the spot on a cool autumn day! And the recipe is very forgiving so throw in whatever seasonal vegetables you have on hand. I almost always overbuy on potatoes and celery and have found soups and stews to be an […]

Hearty Vegetable and Orzo Soup

Hearty Vegetable and Orzo Soup

I was never much of a soup eater until fairly recently. Our 4-year old loves soups like no one I’ve ever seen and would probably be just fine with me serving some version of it every day. So, we’ve naturally all adapted and become almost weekly soup eaters. […]

Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese

Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese

You know those days when you don’t want to turn on the oven or do any real cooking on the stove but you could really go for some good old-fashioned cheesy carb-loaded comfort food? I had one of those days last week and this mac […]

Sourdough Stuffing with Vegan Chicken, Apples, and Sage

Sourdough Stuffing with Vegan Chicken, Apples, and Sage

One thing I know for sure about stuffing is that everyone has an opinion on what makes a good one. Personally, I prefer mine with a little crunch and minus any cream-of soups which is the exact opposite of the cornbread-based dressing I was exposed to […]

Vegan Chicken Pot Pie

Vegan Chicken Pot Pie

This is classic, stick-to-your-ribs comfort food, vegan style! Today, I’m sharing what has been my go-to method of preparing chicken pot pie for several years and, after making the switch to vegan ingredients, the response remains the same – this pie is completely devoured by […]
