Spicy Crab Puffs

I have a puff pastry addiction. And they’re on sale at my grocery. We are vegan, who go vegetarian about once a week. We are also from Maryland. So, Maryland Blue Crab will never leave our lives. I’m ok with it. We also only eat crab about one meal every three months. 🦀  I also…

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

Ok, so, I forget to get peppers at the grocery store. We had some leftover Tostitos, Greggy used them as a dip and I crushed mine on top. My point being, it’s a great stuffed pepper recipe but you could also just eat it straight up!  This is another one of those ‘use what you…

Buffalo Cauliflower Wings 

I already have a recipe for regular Cauliflower ‘wings’ in place of chicken, found here 👇🏼 Cauliflower Wings Recipe But, they’re just so delicious, I wanted to remind you that you can toss them in buffalo sauce for game nights!

Carrots in a Blanket

Pigs in a blanket is one of my most favorite of all the times. So, when we went mostly vegan/vegetarian, this was a struggle to substitute. Look, it’s not the same. But, it’s pretty delicious and pretty healthy too! I use a vegan puff pastry I’ve found but sometimes I can only find the vegetrian…

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

These are for you meat eaters! I made these years ago before we went vegan but I remember them being so delicious, that I just had to share! They’re super easy, yet make you look super skilled! 😜 Ingredients: Pillsbury cinnamon roll tube  Bacon  Directions: Place the number of bacon strips as there are cinnamon…

Buffalo Cauliflower Puffs

Lazy Saturday means being a fat kid…and vegetarian! My infamous Spinach and Artichoke Puffs were such a hit, I was thinking of what other classic ‘dips’ I could shove into puff pastry.  Because….puff pastry.  Mmmmm….puff pastry….. Ok, back on subject here….just look! 👇🏼 Ingredients: 1 sheet puff pastry (thawed if you’re using the frozen kind…

Charleston Caviar

My brother made this once. He took much pride in his knife skills! This was what made me like beans! I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does! And yes, it’s vegan!  Ingredients: 2 cans black beans  1 can mexicorn/fiesta corn 1 can petite diced tomatoes  1 cucumber  1/2 red onion  Good…

Corn and Broccoli Casserole

This Easter we went vegetarian with the family! My mom still brought a ham and my sister in law added bacon to her potatoes, but she made sure to leave half of them without bacon in a different container!  Check out that plate of Easter goodness! Who needs ham anyways? I tested out this corn…

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

One of the staples I make sure is always in my freezer is a 5 pack of frozen bread dough from the frozen section of the grocery store! It’s my secret weapon for many things! SUPER EASY!  I use it for pizzas, regular bread when I run out, homemade hot pockets, this cinnamon swirl bread…

Sushi A La Cherise 

I love sushi! Buuuuut, I live in a small town with only one sushi place this is ridiculously over priced.  Years ago when I worked in the mental health field, one of my clients wanted to learn to make sushi. So, googled and YouTubed how to make sushi. I took that memory and my newer…

Buffalo Cauliflower Dip

This, folks, is vegetarian. And oh so delicious! This can be a nice side on a weekend, a football snack or a pot luck party dish!  I have always been obsessed with buffalo chicken dip but since becoming mostly vegan/vegetarian, I needed something to fulfill my cravings! Oh yeah, and I hate tofu or any…
