Mom’s Taco Salad with a Twist!

My mom has been making a homemade taco salad since I was alive. I realized a few years ago that she had been making it for so long that some family members were excited to get a taste of it at a summer party for the first time in years (possibly decades). This is a... Continue Reading →

Katherine’s Thai Chili Recipe

I love finding delicious vegan recipes that can be used all year long...especially during Lent and other fasting days within the Orthodox calendar.

Over-the-Rainbow Minestrone

We are in day eleven of the Dormition Fast. I was originally hoping to blog about a vegan-friendly food item every day for the first fourteen days of August during this fasting cycle...As you can see, I am eleven days late.

Shiitake Portobello Stew

This amazing Lenten stew is outrageously delicious (assuming you like mushrooms and dishes with a little kick). This recipe is found on page 163 of Dr. Joel Fuhrman's cookbook entitled, "Eat to Live Cookbook."

Well, this is no... Continue Reading →

So here it goes: 1 1/2 pounds peeled, de-veined large shrimp 1 tbsp. olive oil the juice of 1 lemon plus 1 lemon cut into... Continue Reading →

Creamed Pork Chops (Crock-Pot)

My mother-in-law came over for dinner last night. Since we had been in Indianapolis all weekend, I didn't have time to run to the grocery store. I rummaged through the freezer the night before to figure what I could make and I found two pork chops (one for her and one for Dan as I... Continue Reading →
