Vegan contributions to Father’s Day

My Yummy Weekend! Sunday was Father’s Day! Props to all the great Dads out there! I hope you felt celebrated! We celebrated with my family on Saturday. My sister did a shrimp boil. It looked great and was a big hit with the family. We decided that my job would be appetizers, a potato salad,…

Polenta Slices with Loaded Marinara

Polenta cravings… I know this is a strange thing to crave. Why would anyone crave polenta? I have always gotten migraines from corn. They were terrible in college! Since I changed my diet, I am really feeling the effects when I do venture back into the land of dairy! Therefore, maybe dairy was giving me…

Stuffed Avocados

These have been on my mind all week. I saw a picture this weekend of a stuffed avocado. It was so very pretty. It was a picture promoting a vegan food festival. I just picked up a bag of huge avocados at Costco and I need to use them before we leave for vacation (and…

Dinner with Friends/Family

School is ending this week. In addition, not just another year, the end of elementary! The girls are heading to Intermediate School for the next 4 years! It is a strange thing to have twins because most of these milestones happen together. We are on the fast track from complete craziness to an empty nest…

Fennel Salad – Quick and Easy!

Fennel for summer! I love Fennel! I feel like I have been doing research on how to use more of it for years. It used to be hard to find. However, I am seeing it more often… Even at Trader Joe’s! For years, I have made a lentil dish with fennel, onions and carrots. I…

In need of Tex Mex.

I needed a good meal! I ate lunch with a couple of dear girlfriends today at a Mexican Food staple of Dallas. El Fenix. The Downtown location. I have heard rumors that this one is closing. I have read for months now that Mexican Food is always a good vegan friendly option. I am going…

Need a Run for the Border?

Who needs Taco Bell!? One of the first recipes I found was a Taco Bell Crunch Wrap. Vegan Style! Most tortillas are vegan. Thank your lucky stars! They are my delivery vehicle of choice for many meals. I struggle daily with what my meat-eating husband and 10 year olds will eat. This is hard all…

The BEST Breakfast Scramble I have found!

Breakfast can be a challenge. I am not a huge breakfast food fan as we have discussed before. I like savory as opposed to sweet. However, those vegan churro waffles may be my exception;) I tend to grab hummus and pretzel chips or nuts most days at my desk. There are so many mixed reviews…

Chocolate Pudding… who knew!

Vegan Pudding… get out of town! Chocolate Pudding was not a treat I thought I would ever have again! But, I was wrong and I am so happy! Last week I went to lunch at a neighborhood health food restaurant. We ordered our lunches at the counter and took a seat with a number for…

Jackfruit Taquitos for comfort!

What I made when I needed a comfort food Sunday! I reverted to Jackfruit! I had a rough weekend. Many things were good, but Friday was a rough day. Whew! Like, really tough… Much of my weekend was lovely. One of my very best friends had a wonderful birthday party on Saturday. Her parents threw…
