Tonight’s dinner for my little vegan princess….

I wanted this to look artsy but I suck at that apparently LOL

I made a variation of my mushroom pie…used unsweetened almond milk, added tarragon, used baby ports, added nutmeg, freshly ground salt and pepper, a cup of chopped collard greens,  and a teeny kick of cayenne…. AND used little puff pastry shells…. We loved the little “hats.” LOL

I asked my dd if she wanted one or two. She said “one” but I made two and that little child ate both. YAY. I knew it. Do I know my kid or what??

The almond milk worked splendidly. I am still learning about milks. It was definitely creamier than other milks. If I had thought ahead, I would have thawed out some cashew cream … which recipe you can find here on “Vegan Cooking for the Carnivore”

This dude is amazing. I can’t wait to try some of his other recipes.

Well that was my excitement of the day except for the mini rain shower we had when it was sunny. It was nice, in my house, all quiet….just listening to the rain drops….

Until my next “adventure” ….

…wait…do Guinea Pigs oink or do they just make muffled grunts?

My family is my Guinea Pig tonight. Making Polenta Casserole (Vegan)….after reading several recipes and forums, I came up with something I think will be tasty….

I’ll be back later to update this post… if I make it out of the dining room alive!


Below is before the oven…after I took the shot, I sprinkled some paprika on it for colour.



Both of them liked it!! And they had seconds…YAY!!

Below are photos of it after I took it out of the oven



and then one after I cut into it for service so you could see the filling.


Find the recipe here on my Road Tests page.


Have a great night!
