Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

We used to go to a Mexican restaurant called Don Tequila’s when we lived in Ohio. We enjoyed their Mexican Shrimp Cocktail so much that one of the servers gave me the ingredients list once. Not the amount of each ingredient, just the ingredient. I never made it until yesterday, and what I came up … Continue reading

Succotash

I know… ew… lima beans. That’s what I thought too, but it’s good, trust me. My favorite succotash is at Bone Fish Grill but after having it twice and love, love, loving it, it never fails that I miss it being back on their menu by a day or two every time I go there … Continue reading

This recipe is from my newest cookbook Forks Over Knives. Eat these alone with a salad, on top of quinoa, rice or other grain or on a hamburger bun for a vegan ‘hamburger.’  They are thick and “meaty” and take on the flavor of whatever marinade you put on them. Yum. Yum. I served mine … Continue reading
