Comfort Foods and I need your input on recipes!


I'm home after a couple of days in MA with my beautiful nieces, wonderful SIL and brother. I just LOVE my family so much and am so grateful they are close. Having nieces is such a joy. My boys share the same age difference almost to the days (but they are 17 and 19 now!) so it's so much fun seeing two little girls play. It takes me back in years! I am so excited about my third niece/nephew coming! I think it's a boy. I had dreams of a little boy on more than one occasion.

....but I digress..  I'm back home and lunch was this simple Indian Spiced lentils and leftover Kale Salad.

While in MA I made a big batch of Shepherds Pie using my All Purpose Seitan.  I liked it, but I picked the seitan out. bleh. I need to get more main dish recipes written out which I am going to work on over the next week or so.

Speaking of recipes, have you check out my new Recipe Page? It's a work in progress, but slowly I am getting things together in one place.

What sort of main dishes ( or recipes in general ) would you like to see?

  1. Looks great to me. Why did you pick out the seitan? How about a nice baked bean recipe in honor of your new england trip?

  2. I am kind of allergic to wheat and I despise seitan! I have pretty much mastered the preparation of seitan trying to find a way I like it, but no luck. It's a good thing anyway since I break out in hives when I make it/eat it.

    Great idea about the baked beans. I live in New England, so I should have a good baked bean recipe!

  6. So, is your brother and fam vegan too? That is so cool. Neices and nephews are a lot of fun. I know I've greatly enjoyed all of mine.

    As far as recipes go...anything you come up with is fabulous! Staying on the New England theme, what about a vegan NE clam chowder?

  9. I am loving your recipes! Today I made your chocolate pecan pie (I used walnuts). It's in the freezer right now but we can't wait to try it.

  10. Personally, I am looking for recipes without the addition of oil that are "volumetric"--meaning lots of very low calorie ingredients. High greens. Low nuts. Hope my suggestions help.

  11. Hi! I agree with those who said they already love what you do, and would like to see recipes w/less wheat and fat. I'm always looking for recipes that are fast or that you can make ahead, or both, since I work late and have to whip up food quickly for 2 hungry kids. My preference is for fresh whole foods whenever possible, especially greens. Wouldn't mind seeing what you can do with grains like amaranth, millet, and quinoa. Thanks!

  12. I love your blog and have been following almost daily (as daily as my children allow) for new recipes.
    Yea,I agree about the beans and the thai dishes; our family loves both of those. How about a nice chili recipe? I've love to see what you do with chili.

    Have a great day!
