Vegan Brie

In my vegetarian days I always enjoyed a good brie.  Since then I have wanted to try my hand at making one.  I started with the recipe from The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak and adapted it and changed it to suite my own tastes.  I also wanted to make a brie that was hot and inside a pastry.  The afore mentioned is a cold brie so I had to change it quite a bit.  This is a very easy recipe, although it is a little time consuming.  The "cheese" has to set for at least 4 hours and...

Breakfast Casserole

I am going out of town this week for the Region 8 Gymnastics Congress and in order to make sure my poor husband doesn't survive by eating Ramen noodles and PB and J sandwiches I always try to make something he can eat on for a few days while I am away. This time I decided to do breakfast. I used to make this when I used to eat eggs and have wanted to try it Vegan for some time now.  This is the super yummy result of this! Breakfast Casserole

Super Easy Kale Chips

So, I know I posted about Kale Chips once before, but this is an alternative recipe for making them that is faster and easier.  Kale is so very good for you so make these for a snack or a side to go with your lunch. Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. Boiling decreases the level of sulforaphane; however, steaming, microwaving, or stir frying do not result in significant loss. Along with other...

Vegan Tom Kha Soup

As we made our way from Louisiana to North Carolina we stayed a night in Savannah, GA.  We were starving and wandered around downtown until we found a restaurant called Saigon located at 4 W Broughton Street.  They were extremely Vegan Friendly and would make almost anything on the menu Vegan if you wanted it including the soups.  William ordered the Tom Ka Soup and it was absolutely delicious.  I had the Bun Ca Ri which was a curried noodle salad bowl.  Mine was good, but I have to admit...

Eggless Egg Salad

For the past few weeks I have been working out really hard.  I started doing P90X which is a real butt kicker. That combined with the fact that the temperature outside is already in the high 90's is changing my eating habits a little.  So for lunch today after my workout I wanted something light, but satisfying.  I have seen lots of recipes for eggless egg salad in the past, so I decided to take my favorite aspects from a couple of them and combine that with the ingredients...
