Most of these are my own creations, or sometimes, adaptations of others creations.  I hope you enjoy them!!

Vegan Porcupine Balls

Does anyone else have foods that you only like when your mom makes them?  This is a recipe from my Mom's collection that I decided to make Vegan.  It was a little bit of a challenge since the main ingredient in hers is ground beef.  Since I am able to make a pretty tasty beef substitute I thought I would give it a try.  It turned out really good. Porcupine Balls Makes 12 Ingredients: For "Beef": 1 1/2 Cups TVP 1 1/2 Cups Water 4 Tbsp Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp Vegan Worcestershire 2 Tbsp Nutritional...

Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins

These are perfect for a breakfast on the go, or a late night munchie.  Each Muffin contains about 188 Calories and 8 grams of fat if you use these ingredients. If you wanted to cut the calorie and fat count down even more, you can substitute 1/4 Cup Applesauce for the Oil. Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins Makes 12 Muffins   Ingredients: 1 ¾ Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour ½ Cup Raw Sugar ½ tsp Baking Soda 2 tsp Baking Powder 2 tbsp cocoa powder ¼ tsp Cinnamon ½ Cup non-dairy semisweet chocolate chips 2 Tbsp Ground...

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

I got a bit of a sweet tooth late last night and decided to make some peanut butter cookies.  I used to work at a restaurant in Wilmington, NC that had a bakery in it and we made these really easy peanut butter cookies.  The only problem with their recipe was, they used egg.  So I changed up the recipe a little and used more healthy versions of the ingredients like raw sugar and organic un-salted peanut butter.  You can use whatever peanut butter you have on...

Pecan Raisin Biscotti

Hot Tamales

So, it has taken me a while to get this recipe up.  This is mostly due to the fact that it is a long one and I have been procrastinating typing it up.  Tamales are a little time consuming to make, so I recommend attempting this one on a weekend or whenever you have a day off.  The results are amazing and so awesome since it is hard to find a good vegan hot tamale, or even a vegetarian one for that matter. I can assure you...

Vegan Sausage Patties

I used to really enjoy the Morningstar Sausage Patties in my Vegetarian days, but since they are not Vegan friendly I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I know there are other brands that are Vegan, but I just prefer to make my own.  This list of ingredients looks long, but keep in mind that most of it is spices and you can omit a couple if you do not have them.  The fennel is a must, as is the Cayenne and Black Pepper, but the rest is just the combination I came up with...

Natchitoches Pies

Keeping with the Vegan in Louisiana theme I decided to try my hand at the famous Natchitoches Meat Pies.  TVP is always a good substitute for anything that would normally require ground meat.  If you can not find TVP in your area or if you are rushed for time, you can use Boca Crumbles or Fantastic World Food's Taco Filling. Both of these meat substitutes are Vegan.  The MorningStar Farms version is not, it contains both dairy and egg. To make mine a bit healthier I chose to use whole wheat flour and also to...

Peanut Butter Blondies

This is my adaptation of a recipe I found in  Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by: Moskowitz and Romero. This dessert recipe is not only delicious, but really high in protein.  Peanuts are already a good provider and I added to the content by using garbanzo bean flour.  This flour adds only a slight nuttiness to the flavor and is great for desserts.  As a bonus, this flour is gluten free for anyone out there suffering that allergy. Top one of these off with a drizzle of my delicious chocolate sauce and enjoy. Peanut...

Taco Bell Style Mexican Pizza

Ever have a craving for one of those really bad for you treats like a Mexican Pizza from Taco Bell?  Before I went vegan every now and then I would have a Mexican Pizza with all beans, no meat.  They are delicious but probably not very healthy.  Now you can make your very own Vegan version of this at home. Slightly more healthy than it's fast food counterpart.  This is made with seasoned beans, but if you have it on hand, add a layer of TVP "ground beef", or gimme lean crumbles to your beans. You can...

Vegan Irish Cream

  As a bartender I know so many delicious shots that require Irish Cream.  Because of the whole dairy thing (blech!) I can not have it anymore.  So I did some searching online and found where my fellow Vegan's had been working on recreating the recipe.  I tried my own hand at it and the results are amazingly similar.  So, next party at my house, bring on the shots!!! Vegan Irish Cream Ingredients: 3/4 Cup Irish Whiskey 1 Pint...
