20 Minute (Vegan) Sloppy Joes

Saturday night at home. After a day of rain and grey skies a cozy movie night was in order.  We decided on the movie Yesterday and enjoyed some comfort food to go with it.  This vegan version of sloppy joes will not disappoint.  I didn’t really remember what the original ones are supposed to taste…

Moroccan Lentil “Lamb Pops” With Couscous Salad (Vegan)

4:30pm Tuesday.  We’ve been in isolation for 1 week now.  I’ve made it a point to have a list of things to do every day.  No sitting around all day although every evening has been movie night. Dinner will be the split pea soup I made yesterday.  Not being able to just run out to…

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup (Vegan).

The greatest dishes are very simple   Cooking has been keeping me occupied while we hunker down at home.

Potato Gnocchi In White Wine With Mushrooms And Feta (Vegetarian)

Things are getting a little spooky.   There’s a silence in the city.  We grocery shopped this afternoon, empty shelves and people hidden behind masks.  The Coronavirus panic has set in.  All sporting events have been cancelled.  I literally got a pot of water on the stove for dinner tonight and our water shut off suddenly. …

Vegan Mushroom Spinach Stroganoff (On Pappardelle)

We’ve been waiting for the rain to come for 3 days and every morning the Weather Network changes it’s story;  rain coming tomorrow.  Today is Sunday, 9:44pm.  The city sparkles in the dark night.  I’m sitting at our bedroom window atop a pile of pillows, laptop resting on the window sill and the wind coming…

It’s…

Cauliflower and Potato Curry (Vegan)

The house is swirling with the scent of exotic spices.  Curry, Garam Masala, Ginger, I imagine this is what it smells like walking through a spice market in India.  We turned our clocks back this weekend and as I write the sun has long set. I started my Christmas shopping today. I start early every…
