Sundried Tomato Scrambled Tofu Recipe

May 10th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie


Perhaps the hardest thing to give up when attempting a vegan lifestyle are eggs.

Let's face it.

Just type in google images right now "breakfast ideas" and watch what comes up.

In fact, I will do it for you now and tell you what I got:

  1. Pancakes (made with 1 egg).
  2. Breakfast Burritos (made with egg whites).
  3. Spinach and Mushroom Frittatas (made with 4 eggs).
  4. Over easy egg and avocado (made with eggs...I guess you knew that).
  5. Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich (made with meat and ....you have it...eggs).

 

Eggs are pretty impressive aren't they? 100% the most popular breakfast selection - at least in America that is... (they love 'em in Europe too though, so I know that).

So that's why the problem exists for people trying to go vegan. What are you to do about your morning breakfast when everything seems to center around eggs?

Well the answer is ~ (more…)


gluten free carrot cake

Gluten Free Carrot Cake. Courtesy: Teri Gruss

Moist and luscious, gluten-free carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is a gluten-free favorite at my house. The cake freezes well and the recipe makes one round layer cake, one 13x9-inch sheet cake or 36 cupcakes. Three cups of grated carrots add healthy carotene, a nutrient that the body uses to make vitamin A. Not bad for a cake! (more…)

Gluten Free Green Chile and Cheese Omelet

April 29th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

At one of my favorite grocery stores, they make a chile relleno casserole that is delicious. I found out it has flour so I've been researching how to make it gluten-free at home; it wasn't too hard. Well I just didn't feel like making a full-on casserole so I opted for a puffy omelet instead.

I took a couple of quick pics and decided to share them with you. Sometimes the simplest things in life can be the best. I hope you try it and enjoy it!

Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Corn and Black Bean Salsa

April 22nd, 2013 by Jenny Manseau

shrimp-0051I would grill all year-long if I could. This year we had so much crazy snow drifts that it was a bit impossible to do. I love my grill dearly…great flavors, you can grill pretty much anything, its outside with the sun and the fresh air, easy clean up, and less fats are used! We grill steaks, chicken, burgers, hot dogs, hot sausages, shrimp, fish, pizza, and veggies…tons of veggies! Last year I bought one of those little grill baskets for I think $3.00 and it works like a charm, especially for mushrooms.

Last week we got the tank refilled and have used it quite a bit since. We are both trying to get in better shape and eat healthier (a follow-up post to my I’m on a mission…post will appear soon, I promise!). So the grill comes in very handy for (more…)

sweetnsavorylife vegan gluten free doughnutI would like to first thank Bob's Red Mill for making this possible. Their products are awesome in taste and quality, and that is why I am truly a fan!  I never would have thought that I could make absolutely the best cake donuts both gluten free and vegan before this.  I mean, let's be honest - there is not a lot of vegan and gluten free online. You search online and you find gluten free donuts - with eggs.  You find vegan donuts - with (more…)

Thai Vegetable Soup Recipe

March 28th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

Although it has been warm inside with all of this baking, it has been quite chilly outside for me. And so, I thought that besides announcing the winners of the giveaway this week, I thought it would be fitting to share a delicious soup with you that I stumbled upon from Elana's Pantry. I love Elana. She has nice recipe ideas, and her recipes actually work!

This soup is (yes) both gluten free and vegan, and adds that delicious Thai style to it, which for me, is marvelous!thai veggie soup elanas pantry (more…)

Gluten-free Dairy-free Blueberry Muffin Recipe

March 14th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

Whether you make your own gluten-free flour mix or buy one like Auntie’s Flour Blend, it’s easy to make really tasty muffins. You just need a fool-proof recipe!

I’ve been making these muffins for about 5 years. When my daughter was first diagnosed with a gluten and dairy sensitivity, I put my best foot forward and figured out the perfect combination of ingredients to create a moist and flavorful end product. There are a few rules, though, that are important to follow. Here are my suggestions:blueberry_muffins

It turns out that more than Idahoans love potatoes!

I did some research, and it appears that potatoes are America's favorite vegetable. I never really knew that concretely, but from a personal standpoint, I can understand why!baked home fries mexicali (more…)

Orange Raspberry Blueberry Muffins Recipe

March 4th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

I once was in a shopping mall in California (Sears, I believe), and read a screen t-shirt that was soooo hilarious to me that I took a picture of it. It said (and I quote), "Muffins are just ugly cupcakes". It had a picture of this beautifully conceited cupcake staring down its low-esteemed muffin companion.

I know - pretty mean - but I had to laugh!

Now of course, I view it as "Cupcakes are just pretty muffins with hats on", but that is neither here nor there.DSC_0239-1

Kale and Beef in Chestnut Sauce

February 20th, 2013 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

Wanna hear something funny? When I first started my blog, I intended it to be an even mix of meals, breads, soups, desserts, etc. that mirrored how we eat. When I re-did my recipe index, I realized that notion bit the dust a few years back, and surprise, surprise, it seems like my blog is brought to you by the letter C and the word chocolate. Not that I don’t love chocolate, but I’d kinda like to balance things a little more.  Just cause.

Then again, as I look at my very un-photogenic, super-yumtastic stew, maybe part of my decision is because dessert photographs better? (more…)
