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 [...]

Last year I made an Aphrodisiac Pasta dish for Valentine’s Day, and this year I wanted to make something else that also incorporates foods with aphrodisiac qualities.  This would make a great start to your main meal, or a nice light lunch to get you ready for the big night.  It’s pretty effortless to throw [...]

I’m still working my way through showing you guys everything I served at our Bears’ Brunch, even though we’re long past Bears talk since they blew the game last weekend.  My nephew is a Steelers fan (we’re not sure where that came from), so we’ll all be rooting for them in the Super Bowl. I’ll [...]

Even though it’s technically fall, we’re still dealing with some very hot weather here in Los Angeles, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to let up anytime soon.  Since heirloom tomatoes still abound at the farmers’ market, and given that it feels like summer here, I thought I’d share this Grilled Avocado and Heirloom [...]

Escarole Salad with Avocados and Oranges

Escarole Salad with Avocados and Oranges

I sometimes forget how great a simple salad can be.  This one is from Janet Fletcher’s “Fresh From the Farmers’ Market”, and I used a mix of baby escarole and frisee lettuces.  Combined with the shallot vinaigrette, avocados, and oranges, this salad is full of different textures and flavors, all of them fantastic.  It calls [...]

Green Market Salad

Green Market Salad

A few years ago I was in Manhattan for some improv shows, staying with my best friend, the beautiful and talented Jennifer Valle.  We took a raw foods dessert class at Matthew Kenny’s The Plant in Brooklyn.  Those desserts were some of the best I’ve ever had, and it definitely peaked my interest in raw foods.

I was trying to think of what to make for dinner the other day, and it was one of those hot days when you know you’re not going to feel like cooking, but you want something good to eat.  I’d gone to Whole Foods and saw a chicken salad they make that I actually used [...]

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

One thing I really miss since giving up meat is a good tuna sandwich.  There were a lot of reasons that we finally gave up fish (and said goodbye to non-veggie sushi, which is really what was holding us back), but one thing that was freaking us out was the amount of mercury we were [...]

Simple Lunch Salad

I was shopping at Whole Foods a few weeks ago and I was so excited to see that they were carrying sunergia mediterranean herb soy feta.  On it’s own I thought it was just okay, so I ended up using it in this simple salad.  It’s romaine, sun dried tomatoes, sliced red onion and a [...]
