Why We Love Fall

This time of year we open our homes to friends and family and gather for many, many meals to fuel us through the colder months. Here are a few things about the Fall Season that we just love (well, some of us) and why this time of year is so inspiring for food.

There are many versions of vegan Mac and Cheese out there on the internet.  This is a simple, no fancy ingredients version with a crispy breadcrumb topping that is a real cinch to make.  This was my first time trying mustard greens (can you believe it?!) and I LOVED them! They add veggies to a Continue Reading …

Vegan Hamburger Soup

I got inspired to make a vegan version of hamburger soup by my friend Katherine who shared this recipe from allrecipes.com on her Facebook page.  It sounded delicious and easy to make – she has two young children and they liked it too!  So with a couple packages of veggie ground leftover from an event, Continue Reading …
