coconut creamed spinach – Recipe by Love and Lemons I started this with the best intentions, really. I was going to make a version of Jack’s mom’s famous creamed spinach… top it with crispy shallots because they remind me of my dad and the infamous green bean casserole (his favorite thing). I was going to make just a few tweaks — but a few shiitakes and a can of coconut milk later, it became less of a “twist” and more of a left turn. Albeit, a delicious left turn. I absolutely love coconut – if you don’t, this one might not be for you. The coconut is not merely a dairy replacement here, it’s flavor is front and center… sweet, rich and creamy… with a little tang from a tiny bit of lemon.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Irish Stew Vegetarian Irish Stew I can’t believe how busy I’ve been lately. A huge work project came to fruition–finally! The POWER Of Veggie Protein! Since I have been a vegetarian/vegan since 1948, I can honestly tell you that I have never been diagnosed as: deficient in protein or diagnosed with any disease, whatsoever. When I had my test results come back a few months ago, my kidneys, my liver, my cholesterol, blood sugar, heart were all in great shape. I will be 91 in August. My wife, Linda (she's 58) just got her blood report back as well, and it showed her protein levels as being perfectly normal and she is a pretty strict Vegan. Her blood sugar was also normal and we JUICE A LOT!

Baked Banana Tempura I’ve been dying to make something with the Vietnamese Extra Fancy Cinnamon I picked up from Penzeys Spices. Every time I get a whiff of it, I want to bake something. Something easy but healthy, I decided to try a baked version of banana tempura. I used the batter-baked method from The 30-Minute Vegan. Roasted Cauliflower - Your Vegan Mom Totally addicting bar snack or nutritious side dish? You decide. I am completely fine with it being both. Float Away Eons ago when my sister and I were but wee tots and my parents still exercised the authority to restrict my intake of sweets, I remember the harshest restrictions being placed on soda. Occasional candies and chocolates were okay, but soda? Only once a year, on New Year’s Eve were my sister and I allowed the pleasure of the bubbly liquid.
