This cheesecake is one of those special occasions type of foods. Of course, recently I seem to be having a lot of special occasions, so maybe I need to tighten up my criteria. In this case though, it’s Father’s Day and this cake is for my dear hubby.… Continue reading

Sometimes you just gotta have gooey, especially when it comes to vegan Mac n Cheese. I don’t do the fake cheeses, but I don’t blame you if you do. I’m just averse to their ingredient list, and tend to eat them when I’m out and my options are limited.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you see a head of cabbage? For many of you I’m betting it’s cole slaw. For quite a few folks it may be sauerkraut or kimchi. For me, when I see a head of cabbage I think of stuffed cabbage.… Continue reading
It used to be that when I heard the term Caesar Salad what came to mind was a picture of Julius Caesar reclining on an imperial sofa and eating a, you guessed it, Caesar Salad.

That’s why locally grown vegetables are more desired than those transported halfway around the world. Not only do they tend to have less impact on the environment, but they’re often more nutritious and fresher. Most folks believe that fish is healthiest of meats, but most don’t connect the dots and realize that the source of all that nutrition is the sea veggies those fish eat.… Continue reading
Whenever I think about strawberries for some reason I’m always reminded of a box of Neapolitan ice cream. I don’t eat ice cream anymore with the exception of banana ice cream, but when I did, and I got one of those boxes, it seems like within a minute all the chocolate was gone and you had a choice of vanilla or strawberry.… Continue reading
Word association time. When I say “scones”, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? For me, and I think for many Americans, I picture some proper English lady or gentlemen sipping tea and delicately nibbling on a flakey little cake, possibly in either the library of a large home, or while sitting by a window overlooking a garden.… Continue reading
