Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

This recipe from Betty Goes Vegan was easy and SO delicious.  I loved the bright lemon flavor, and I don’t think I would have thought to use lemon juice in a mock chicken salad.  It’s so good!  I used to not be a fan of celery in pretty much anything, but it was great in [...]

C’est La Vegan on Instagram

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the most technologically savvy person, and I feel like I’ve been out of things for over a year, so cut me some slack when I tell you that I’m just finally starting to use Instagram.  Yes, I’m very behind the curve here. Now that I’m up to [...]

Beef-less Stew with Herb Biscuits

Happy New Year!  Ryan and I flew back yesterday, and I took the opportunity last night to use my Christmas present from him – a Le Creuset dutch oven and matching trivet!  I’ve wanted one of these for a loooooooooong time.  I was always torn about which color I’d want, but when I saw that [...]

Buffalo “Chicken” Dip

Buffalo “Chicken” Dip

Before going vegan I used to love buffalo chicken fingers – not the wings, but fried chicken tenders in buffalo sauce.  I never really understood the point of eating a wing (I still don’t), and bones in food always freaked me out.  Obviously, it’s been a while since I’ve eaten real buffalo chicken anything, but [...]

Gardein Scallopini with Mashed Zebra Potatoes & Roasted Asparagus

Never heard of zebra potatoes before?  Neither had I, until Ryan found these at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market.  We couldn’t resist picking some up to experiment.  Of course you never have to twist my arm to try a new variety of potato!

Irish “Steak” and Stout Stew

Irish “Steak” and Stout Stew

Despite my red hair and unwavering love of Ireland, I’m not actually Irish.  Well, we think there may have been some Celtic blood in there somewhere, and all our Irish friends tell me that I look so Irish that has to be the case.  Plus, being raised right outside Chicago and then living in the [...]

“Faux Bird Fried”

I mentioned in my first post from our Oscar party that I made a couple old favorites in addition to some new recipes.  This is one of the former, definitely worth making over and over again!  These fried chicken bites are what we served for the film “The Blind Side.”  You might recognize the photo [...]

Just looking at this photo makes my mouth water.  I really, really, really used to love fried chicken.  Love it like it was actually my favorite food kind of love.  Throw in some mashed potatoes and biscuits and I was in heaven.
