I have a confession...I love Costco. Who doesn't? What's not to love? When I see a great deal, I can't turn it down, hence the reason there is a 10 pound bag of lentils in my pantry. It went unopened for about 2 weeks and then I panicked. What am I going to do with [...]

Can you really ever have too many chili recipes? The answer is no. I love beer chili. It makes an already hearty chili even heartier. This recipe is similar to my signature chili recipe, but with MORE BEER and MORE MEAT! My preferred beer of choice if I'm going to make a chili is an [...]

Vegan Pumpkin Bread

By |October 20th, 2015|All Recipes, Party Food, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Vegan pumpkin bread, in my opinion, is just as tasty, if not better than pumpkin bread made with butter and eggs. It's certainly lighter and fluffier while still being dense and hearty. Spread some hazelnut spread on a slice, or drizzle the entire loaf with a spiced glaze and you're good to go! Add some [...]

Every time I go to a restaurant and see a roasted beet salad, I order it. These salads can range from $12 - $20 a pop depending on where you go! After my third beet salad out on the town, within a two week time frame, I decided I'd make my own! Why not? I've [...]

My mother-in-law went on an international trip. As a thank you for a ride to the airport, she unloaded all of the leftover produce she had harvested from her garden and gave it to us in one glorious veggie heap. We're talking tomatoes on tomatoes on tomatoes and tons of green beans! Needless to say, [...]
