Impossible Meatloaf

I posted the process of making this meatloaf, using Impossible Foods grounds, on my Instagram story last night and received so many requests for an actual recipe I figured I better get to it! This is sort of a hybrid recipe – I know some people use onion soup mix for their meatloaf. My grandmother,…

Little Lil’s Pizzelles

Growing up, one of the first things I learned to help my grandmother make is an Italian flat cookie called a pizzelle. They are made from a thick batter using an electric pizzelle iron. We would make these for each ‘major’ holiday – Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We would also make them during the year…

Ground Flax Ravioli

So here we are a month into a Stay at Home quarantine to help curb the spread of COVID-19 – what a crazy time to be alive.  As frustrating as this self isolating can be, it has freed up time to work on or tweak recipes.  Last Sunday was Easter. Growing up we always had…

Little Lil’s Impossible Meatballs

Meatballs were probably one of the first foods that I cooked with my grandmother, Little Lil.  I made meatballs every week for years, and for the past seven years I have tried to recreate a vegan version of those meatballs.  Various version using lentils or mushrooms mixed with vital wheat gluten have come close.  However…

Mac & Miso Cheesy II

For my second Mac Down competition we decided to tweak the recipe in order to pack a little more flavor and achieve a smoother, creamier texture.  Violife took the vegan scene by storm, with their creamy, flavor filled cheese that melts really well.  Their cheddar is on point flavor wise, so we decided to test…

Vegan Burger @ Habit Burger

When I became vegan, the only thing I really sought to “replace” was a good burger. As a rule, if I see a vegan burger on a menu, I’ll give it a try. Supporting my quest,  Habit Burger in King of Prussia, PA was nice enough to invite me to try out their new vegan burger. …

Waffled Tofu?!

The other night I was scrolling through my IG Page and came across some shenanigans from my friends The Food Duo.  Seems like they were bored one night and decided to toss some tofu into a waffle iron! Low and behold not only did it look really good, they confirmed that it tasted great!  So…

Partake Foods – Mini Cookies!

During the second day of exploring the vast halls of the Natural Products Expo West I came across another table that had vegan cookies.  Not one to pass up a vegan cookie, I decided to check it out.  I was greeted by Jeremy of Partake Foods. He was friendly and engaging, he explained some of…

DeLuscious Cookies

This is the first of many blogs about my finds at the Natural Products Expo West 2018.  This was my second Expo experience and first on the West Coast – larger by far from its East Coast counterpart.  So companies set up here really need to stand out to be noticed.  Let me tell you,…
