Spinach “Ricotta” Rolls

Hey, my little chickpeas! Sorry for not posting here for a while, but I’m having way too much fun over on Youtube! I can only do so much in a day, so creating art is what I choose more often than not. Anyway, we are here, in Florida, hunkered down as we get high winds … Continue reading

If there’s one thing I miss since being diagnosed with a cow’s milk allergy — it’s ricotta cheese. I found this recipe at Tastes Lovely dot com Sunday and I made a lasagna immediately thereafter. It was delicious! With the leftover ricotta we had open-faced ricotta sandwiches drizzled with olive oil and salt and pepper … Continue reading

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

Sesame Encrusted Tofu Steaks

I love tofu! But, it gets such a bad rap for no reason and it’s so good for us! We eat it each week; sometimes several times per week. I eat it because I love it, but it also inadvertently helps reduce my menopausal hot flashes. I will link some articles at the bottom of … Continue reading
