  • Zesty Corn Salad

    Zesty Corn Salad

     Enjoy this as either a salad or a toping for fajitas or burrito bowls. I like using Spice House’s fajita seasoning – but you can use whatever brand you want, make your own, or use taco seasoning.

     In the mood for some classic Lo Mein? This dish is a great Lenten adaptation.

  • Vegan Classic Jiffy Corn Pudding

    Vegan Classic Jiffy Corn Pudding

     Corn pudding is a classic dish for my childhood. This is an adaptation from the recipe my grandma used for every holiday dinner. The original recipe uses sour cream, butter and eggs. This vegan version is a relatively straight conversion, using Neat eggs (or other egg replacer), almond yogurt and plant based butter. It has…

     Enjoy these delicious chocolate chip banana muffins for breakfast or even as dessert. It’s a great option as well for fellowship hour.

     These breakfast cookies are easy to whip up. Enjoy them for breakfast, an afternoon snack or a healthy dessert. Use natural ingredients when possible. I like using organic natural peanut butter, lightly sweetened dried cranberries and good quality chocolate chips.

     This chili can easily be adapted to be oil free or sugar free. It is flavorful and filling.

  • Four Bean Salad II

    Four Bean Salad II

    This four bean salad recipe is great for a quick side to enjoy all week long. I like to make the bean salad for lunches and even sides for dinner. Make sure to let it marinate for around 24 hours to get the full taste (though I enjoy taking a taste early!)

  • Spiced Pancakes

    Spiced Pancakes

     After a crazy week, I love to relax and make a Saturday breakfast for my family, especially pancakes. I love the smell wafting through the air as I make them, and the maple syrup drizzling down the sides when they are served. It is often difficult to convert recipes to work with a vegan or…

  • Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

    Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

     The best vegan pancakes are pancakes made of ingredients you typically have in your pantry that are still fluffy and tasty. These pancakes, based of the “Fluffiest Vegan Pancakes” from Tasty Vegetarian are easy to make and don’t require special vegan ingredients. You don’t even need flax seed or chia seed for an alternative to…

  • Quick Chocolate Mug Cake

    Quick Chocolate Mug Cake

     Some days you just crave a chocolatey treat. I’ve been in the mood for it all week long, but most chocolate cakes, including mug cakes, have eggs – or at least milk. This cake, based on the chocolate mug cake recipe from Table For Two certainly satisfied my sweet tooth! The coconut milk adds an…

  • No-Knead Bread

    No-Knead Bread

    During Lent, we often are limited on time. Often I want to make homemade bread, but I just don’t have time to do the mixing, kneading, raising, etc. This is the perfect answer to this problem: minimal hands-on time, versatile and easy to make, while still giving you an artisan-style loaf of bread.

  • Crispy Cajun Fish Tacos

    Crispy Cajun Fish Tacos

     Fish tacos are great for a weekday dinner, especially during the Nativity fast on fish days.   I like to make these tacos with tilapia cut into small chunks.  Any white fish would work.   Make sure to cut the fish into similar size pieces.  Put them in a gallon size ziploc bag with seasoning…
