Pate-Style Vegan Appetizer
Pate-Style Vegan Appetizer

I attended a baby shower for my sister-in-law, hosted by GreenB.E.A.N. Delivery owner Beth Blessing. As she welcomed me into her home, Beth pointed out several vegan appetizers on the baby buffet. And as awesome as it is to have someone recognize AND cater to the vegan diet, hummus and a nut bowl aren’t exactly culinary […]



Egg Nog Recipe
Egg nog Recipe for a delicious Holiday drink!

I decided to start a new holiday tradition this year by making egg nog. I have always liked egg nog, but never made it and actually didn’t even drink it all that often. It was always one of those things that I intended on making, but never did because a) Sarah thinks it is pretty […]



Orange Christmas Almond Bars
Orange Christmas Almond Bars

This recipe is a variation on one that I have perfected over the last couple years, and it’sdefinitely one of my all time favorites when I need to come up with something delicious and a bit out of the ordinary. It’s highly adaptable to whatever ingredients you have on hand or what flavors you like. […]



Red chili pork tamale.
Happy Tamale Day! Red Chile Pork Tamale Recipe

Before I met Jeff, and many years ago, I lived in Arizona. While there I aptly honed my Mexican cooking skills which I treasure dearly, and also learned about a wonderful tradition with my Mexican friends. Every December before the holidays (which for Mexicans, stretches from the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Dec. […]



Orange Vegan Cookies
Orange Vegan Cookies

My grandmother was not known for her cooking skills. But I still like my toast “well-done”, as the flavor arouses memories of her silly stories and nutty adventures. She answered to Grandma Dorothy or Dirty Dotty, depending on the crowd, and even a normal, boring day with her was memorable. She was wise, witty and […]



Flavored Popcorn
Popcorn Flavoring Recipes

Sarah and I are popcorn fanatics. We love just about any kind of popcorn. Sometimes we’ll go to the movies just because we are craving movie theater popcorn, even if there isn’t really anything we want to see. I know, I know movie theater popcorn is overpriced and laden with fat, but come on, it […]



Chocolate Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Sugar Cookies

There is something special about making cut-out cookies, like these Chocolate Sugar Cookies. I think it’s because they take a little more effort – you aren’t just plopping down scoops of dough and shoving pans in the oven. You have to chill the dough, and roll it and cut it and carefully place each cookie […]



No Bake Vegan Pecan Pie
No Bake Vegan Pecan Pie

Traditional Pecan Gets a Delicious Makeover! Gluten Free and No Bake Vegan Pie They say cliches are overused because they offer universal truths, but anyone who has tried their hand at Grandma’s pie recipe will acknowledge that whoever coined the phrase “easy as pie” obviously missed the boat. Because baking a pie is FOR SURE […]



How to make Potato Chips
How to make Potato Chips (BBQ chips)

This may come as a surprise, but I am not a huge snacker. I will admit that this was a huge advantage for me during the past eight months of weight loss (I lost 60 pounds by the way). But there is one snack that I do get a craving for on a fairly regular […]



Molasses Cookies (Molasses Spice Crinkles)
Molasses Cookies (Molasses Spice Crinkles)

I love to make Christmas Molasses Cookies. It is so nice to have a good variety on hand for taking to a friend, or sharing at some of the special holiday events we all have this time of year. I divide my holiday baking into two categories – the fast and easy old standbys, and […]
