After 10 years of being a vegetarian, I have a good collection of veggie cookbooks. Now I would like to get a couple more meat-containing cookbooks that are full of tasty recipes, with a bit more emphasis on healthy.
Recently it was my husband Sam's birthday, and I am always responsible for making cakes on such occasions. This cake, however, was no ordinary cake. This cake had been in the works since 2007. This cake had tiny pies baked into it. Here's how I did it.
I am yearning for the delicious smells of dinner in the crock pot that I remember from childhood.
What veggie friendly meals do you cook in your crock pots? Thoughts on using meat-subs in recipes? Help us expand our meals by liberating this poor, neglected appliance!
I LOOOVE eating muffins for breakfast! However, I am the first to admit that my mother was right when she warned me that muffins are really cookies in disguise. So, I have been on a quest to find healthy muffin recipes ever since. What I've found is that most muffin recipes only have one or two factors that make them "unhealthy," like too much sugar or too much butter. FORTUNATELY, there are easy fixes for most of these problems that allow me to make the muffins healthier, while still enjoying this tasty treat.
I recently joined (and subsequently deleted my account from) a vegetarian networking website. What I got was more of an anti-meat-eater coalition. Now, don't get me wrong: there were some very kind people there, but the general attitude was aggressive. What I really just want is a supportive network for vegetarians, with little-to-no negativity. Has anyone heard of something like that?
I hated being vegan for a long time, because I was missing out on bacon cheeseburgers. So I would waiver back and forth, until the day I figured I could just make anything and everything vegan. Bacon, cheese, hamburgers, all vegan-izeable. I was not a prisoner to my healthy conscious and did not have to live in it's dark deprived shadows.
