Veggie Salad (Vegan)

Buffalo Cauliflower Ring (Vegetarian) 

I tried a Pinterest recipe once when I used to eat meat. It was a Buffalo Chicken Ring and it turned out deliciously awesome!  Buuuuut there was WAY too many crescent carbs and of course chicken. So I docked it up vegetarian style!  First things first, you gotta roast an onion and a head of…

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…
