A Vegetarian Meal Idea

Its not always easy to create a vegetarian meal that doesn’t involve beans and lentils. Its also harder cooking for people that are meat eaters. With this meal, it is sure to win hearts (and stomachs). Its also a perfect Autumn dinner on a cold day! I started by marinating some firm tofu the night…

Hobo dinner for $5

Who says you can’t cook a delicious meal for $5? With a little creativity and some herbs from the pantry, no one could guess you spent close to nothing for this food. This is also a quick and easy dinner for a single person!! My grocery bill was $3 for 5 chicken drumsticks (on sale),…

Flourless Banana Pancakes

How do you make pancakes without flour? That was my first question when I came across this recipe on the internet.  This recipe intrigued me because I imagined pancakes to be fluffy and doughy. Not something I would think eggs and banana would create. To create these pancakes, you need 1 banana and 2 eggs….

Somedays cooking for one can be tedious. I sometimes get so lazy that I end up just opening up a can of tuna and eating it with a bowl of salad. Today I decided not to be so lazy and make dinner instead. This is an easy and quick light dinner that you can make….

Vegan and Gluten Free Peanut Butter Brownies

Having to cut out dairy from my diet has proved to be very challenging. Having to also make sure to make gluten-free and dairy-free recipes proved even more of a challenge. Making sure you take into account of multiple food intolerances leaves you with limited choices in foods and desserts. I found this recipe that…

Dehydrating Things

Why dehydrate your food? I dehydrate fruits because they are going to spoil. I dehydrate mostly in the summer and fall month when there is an abundance of fruits and veggies. I love dehydrating watermelon and apples. They make healthy snacks for work but recently I got into dehydrating veggies (until my dehydrator died). During…

Friday was a lazy day for me.  All I wanted to do was get some rest but I also wanted a nice tasty snack.  In my search for gluten free breads I stumbled across homemade chickpea flour.  What made this nice was that I could make my own flour.  I always try to have chickpeas…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Avocado Pudding

In my quest to replace dairy in my life, I stumbled upon a dairy free chocolate peanut butter pudding made from bananas and avocados. The recipe was posted on Huffington Post so you would think that it would taste pretty good. I gave it a shot! First buy ripe avocados. You will need 1 1/2 (but…

Dairy-free Ice Cream Cake

Having restrictions in your diet doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy what you eat.  You just need to find ways to work around it. It allows you to try new things and expand your food choices. My sister just recently stopped having dairy. I guess that is a good thing because dairy isn’t really that…
