Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Why would a vegan, ever care to create a vegan Philly cheese steak sandwich? Even though I have had my fair share of food containing animal parts and by-products while growing up in France, I must confess that I have never tasted a steak sandwich during my carnivorous years in the US. For some reason, it didn’t appeal […]

Vegan beet soup

Vegan Borscht – Beet Soup

I woke up early this morning to discover my garden covered by a thick blanket of snow. Every little branch had a layer, every item was covered perfectly. It was a scene straight out of a Japanese garden in the winter. Breathtaking! For some reason, all I could think about was making a nice borscht, […]

I proceeded by cutting them into small pieces, each with a sprout and planted them in my garden covering […]

Creamy Mushroom Fettucini

Wild Mushroom Fettucini with Wilted Spinach Salad

Ok, so I may have spoken too fast. Summer hasn’t arrived yet. It looks like the seasons have shifted a whole month forward. April showers are now May showers and the temperatures aren’t exactly summer like these days. Apparently with the various large earthquakes and tsunamis, the earth’s axis has shifted more than one degree. […]
