Fajitas with Spicy Rice and Beans

I bought brown rice tortillas at Trader Joes, and decided to do something with them other than quesadillas, which have become a regular in my meal rotation. I decide on fajitas, which are only slightly different than quesadillas, but that’s okay. I used onions, mushrooms and lots

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Medley with Nori Strips

This is another recipe from Vegetarian Times. I think it looked a little more exciting in the magazine than it really was, but it was still good, so that’s okay. The recipe called for one sweet potato, three rutabagas, an onion, baby carrots (I used three full

The recipe calls for blanched savoy cabbage leaves, but I accidentally bought napa cabbage instead. Napa cabbage is much more delicate than other varieties,

Slow Cooker Chili

This was another meal made in the slow cooker for a busy day. It was kind of spur of the moment decision the night before. My chili usually has zucchini, yellow squash and mushrooms in it, but I didn’t have all of those things on hand this

Amy’s Mac and Cheese

While browsing the freezer section at Whole Foods, I noticed that Amy’s now has a vegan, gluten-free mac and cheese! It’s made with rice noodles and Daiya cheese. I was so excited to try it, that Dennis and I heated it up and had it as a

Dennis was so sweet – he brought home gluten-free goodies from Sweet Avenue Bake Shop! Sweet Avenue is located in Rutherford NJ, and they are well known for their vegan cupcakes, but they also have vegan cookies and candy bars. Dennis got me a delicious chocolate cupcake
