Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza

This was our dessert on Valentine’s Day.  My daughter saw a non-vegan version of fruit pizza in one of her magazine’s and kept asking me to make it.

Vegan Valentine

 Vegan Valentine

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays to get creative as a vegan chef because it features the theme of love and the opportunity to use aphrodisiac ingredients like avocados, asparagus, dates and of course... chocolate.  What better way to show someone how much you love them than by cooking a fabulous meal for them?

Vegan LAVA CAKE

MOLTEN LAVA CAKE – Vegan & GF

On the way to a great recipe, there are often a lot of disasters.  I don’t usually highlight my recipe failures, however I decided to share my Vegan Molten Lava Cake recipe creation process with you.  A lot of work goes into coming-up with one of my new recipes.

Gluten Free Beef Stroganoff

Thanks to Ancient Harvest Quinoa rotelle for another perfect pasta for my recipe.   Beef Stroganoff is one of Shawn's favorite dishes so I thought I'd give it a try.  The result?  Absolutely delicious.  Perhaps too delicious, as we both devoured the entire meal (second helpings).

ENERGY WITH GELATINOUS FIBERS




I love my Chia Seed, which is the best known source of Gelatinous Fibers available.

Rawking a Gelatinous Drink


Rocking a Gelatinous Drink

Chia seeds so yummy! Have you ever used them? They are high in Omega’s and when they are gelled they become a wonderful gelatinous fiber, that works as an intestinal scrubber. Chia seeds also do not contain any estrogen like flax seeds. They are such a wonderful addition to your diet.
