Friday Feast: Homemade Mayo

Posted Dec 19 2014 in , ,

Healthy Mayo? Sign me up! This spread has zero added fat, zero eggs, zero oil, and is SO, so good. Plus, it costs about $2.00 to make. SCORE! I stopped being a die-hard vegan, but some of the tricks of the trade I’d learned stayed in my repertoire. Mayonnaise on a sandwich when I was […]

Friday Feast: 6-layer dip

Posted Dec 12 2014 in , , ,

Why 6 Layers? Why not 7? Well, because that’s the way I made it. If you want a layer 7, grab some black olives. Mr. Lemmony doesn’t care for olives, so that step is a no-go in our household. ūüėČ Last week, I shared the recipe for chili-lime tortilla chips (baked, so you can eat […]

Bean & Corn Quesadilla

Posted Aug 22 2014 in , ,

I have been on a quesadilla kick lately. I think because they are easy, and often lunchtimes sneaks up on me. Whenever I’m in the middle of writing or editing, I tend to blow right through lunch, subsisting on whatever I had for breakfast and coffee in between. So by the time I make it […]

Journey Back from Veganville      

Posted Aug 21 2014 in , ,

Hi, my name is Jessica and I used to be a vegan. Weird that I feel the need to confess that, right? Except when you make a food change as drastically as I did (in 2011, I ate a bacon cheeseburger on a Saturday and went vegan on a Sunday) people notice, want to talk […]
