Here is my proposed menu for today. I say “proposed” because sometimes at the last-minute I’ll change the recipe or add something to the menu.

I just started cooking the make ahead stuff for the Vegan Mushroom Lasagna – It contains mushrooms, kale, marinara and béchamel sauce.



Bourbon Glazed Salmon Steaks

Mushroom Lasagna

Roasted Asparagus

Crescent Rolls (vegan of course)

Dessert ~ Two small cakes from Vegan Treats

I can’t wait to dig in!!


PS: I’m posting the lasagna recipe now!

Okay, I know it’s supposed to be “love” but I couldn’t help it….it’s an “l” word too!!

A Chorus Line is one of my all time favourite soundtracks. Never saw the play and I regret never having seen it. Maybe if it’s revived some day.



my lunch

This was my lunch the other day….

Was supposed to meet a friend for his bday lunch but he cancelled. So I made myself something I threw together…

Spring greens with some basil infused olive oil and a black currant vanilla balsamic (veryyyy syrupy)….and after I tossed that, I placed an avocado chopped on top w/some strawberries. On the side I cooked a tortilla.

“Cooked?”  You say?  Well, store-bought tortillas suck. I know this because I can and have made my own. My mother taught me (one of the very few things she has contributed to my life) and when you buy a pack of tortillas…. they aren’t really cooked. They’re doughy. I am alarmed at how people just take them, warm them in a microwave and then eat them.

The herecy!!  I have always cooked mine on an open gas flame.  Whenever one wasn’t available, I used a cast iron skillet.


That is the only way to get some semblance of an authentic tortilla when you buy a pack of them.

I was just sharing my lunch with you….maybe we can do this real soon!

I have a seafood salad splotch on a vegan cookbook I was reading?

I love cookbooks. I read them like novels.

I’ve been reading ….



Betty Goes Vegan

Quick-Fix Vegan

Vegan Cooking for Carnivores


All three are fabulous in their own way! I highly recommend reading them.

I have made recipes from all three and they have come out beautifully. More to come on that topic.

So that’s basically what I’ve been up to these past few months (in between being violently sick on and off).

I’m gonna tell you tho…. the Tofu Xpress is AMAZING!!! It has changed the way I view and cook tofu!


Until next time…
