Vegan Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze

March 29th, 2015

2013 was the first time in ten years I had had anything remotely close to ham.  As far as I can tell, there are very few vegetarian ham alternatives except for the Cheerful loaf by Loving Hut which I made for Easter that year (I wrote about it here for more info).  I chose to

Vegan Ham with Mango Chutney Glaze

April 30th, 2014

Last year I wrote about the surprise vegan Easter feast I made for my husband.  One of the main features of the surprise was the vegan ham, called a Cheerful Loaf made by the Loving Hut.  Yes, I know the name is a little off-putting.  So is the fact that I had to order it

Vegan Scalloped Potatoes

April 6th, 2014

Here is another recipe that you can serve as a vegan side for your Easter feast… When I came across this recipe for Dairy Free Scalloped Potatoes from Tessa the Domestic Diva, I immediately pinned it so I could make it on a special occasion for my vegan husband.  My husband has very good self

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

January 19th, 2014

Do you remember that 80’s song “Forever Young” by Alphaville?  That title pretty much sums up my mentality for the majority of my teens and twenties.  I felt I would always just be a twenty-something…youth like diamonds in the sun and diamonds are forever. But soon I will be 33 and quite frankly I’m still

Happy 2014!

January 4th, 2014

So, here we are at the beginning of another year – a time for fresh starts.  And, wow, do I need to start fresh! 2013 was like a blur of disorganization, unhappiness, and transition.  So please forgive me for disappearing during the latter part of last year!  Those three elements came to a head in

Tofurky Roast

November 10th, 2013

A Tofurky Roast is the vegetarian alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving turkey.  I’ve written in the past my love for the Tofurky Roast.  I can’t say it enough.  Back in my non-vegetarian days, I never looked forward to turkey at Thanksgiving or Christmas.  But now I cannot wait for those holidays so I can have

Green Bean and Potato Casserole

November 3rd, 2013

At Thanksgiving, you really can’t beat a traditional Green Bean Casserole.  You know the one on the back of the Durkee’s French Fried Onions canister. But sometimes I like to mix things up with a slightly different version.  When I’m feeling non-traditional, I make a Green Bean and Potato Casserole.  This casserole recipe is just

Vegan Zucchini Bread

September 29th, 2013

As I mentioned in the Zucchini Squares post, my mother-in-law gave me a rather large zucchini that made the aforementioned recipe as well as today’s post, which might as well be called “The Best Darned Zucchini Bread Ever Baked.” But for simplicity’s sake, let’s just go with Vegan Zucchini Bread! Now, let me start by

Vegetarian Sausage & Pepper Pasta Bake

September 15th, 2013

I’ve got to be honest.  Aside from kielbasa, I’ve never really liked sausage. So why am I adding it to this pasta bake recipe, you ask? Guilt. Sometimes when the carb-induced guilt gets to be too much, I need to balance pasta with some protein.  And while sausage isn’t my most favorite protein, it was
