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…

Cauliflower Tacos Round 2!

Ok so normally I just chop up some Cauliflower and either just use buffalo sauce or sriracha. Sometimes I’ll use taco seasoning, but that’s about it.  Then I saw something amazing! I saw someone use one of those hand cheese grater dealies. Yes. They grated their Cauliflower on it. Here’s why I was so pumped…..because…

Vegan ‘Crab’ Cakes

Oh. My. God. Growing up in Maryland, I couldn’t live without crab cakes. But, I went vegan. Hm. Dilemma.  Artichokes, you guys!!

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…
