~ La Trattoria at Villa del Palmar Flamingos, Puerto Vallarta ~

I feel very lucky that I was able to spend a week in Puerto Vallarta with my mother! It was a very hot week though … 32 – 34 C in fact with the humidity reaching up to 75%! Kinda like living in a sauna, so it was especially hot for my mama bear being a bit older. I mean even for me, it was … Continue reading ~ La Trattoria at Villa del Palmar Flamingos, Puerto Vallarta ~

~ Saturday Morning Tofu-Vegy Stir-fry ~

I was going to make a Scrambled Tofu, and it turned into a Tofu-Vegy Stir-Fry…. 🙂 It doesn’t really matter does it…. either way, it tasted delicious, scrumptious! Ate that with Bread by Ed, and later, I’ll whip up some rice, and eat the rest with that! 🙂 I cut up an onion, 2 cloves of garlic (would have used more, like 4 or 5, … Continue reading ~ Saturday Morning Tofu-Vegy Stir-fry ~

I was in the Liquor Store buying some beer for a friend who fixed our cracked kitchen window and I came upon this beautiful bottle of wine and thought I should try it …. A very delicious Merlot ($22.00) which I quite enjoyed with my Pasta and Kale & Tomato Sauce from Dr. Neal Barnard’s Book “The Cancer Survivor’s Guide”.

~ The little Town of Ymir ~

I started out the morning with a walk to Sheep Creek with the dogs, Denny and Donner. Another gorgeous hot day, 27 C, and not so smokey from the nearby fires. British Columbia is having a bad time with fires this year, worse than any other!! Even in Whistler, we had so much smoke, you couldn’t see the mountains … only a very, very faint … Continue reading ~ The little Town of Ymir ~

~ A Crispy, Juicy, Crunchy, Raw Black Bean, Vegy, Fruit Salad ~

So as I was stretching, and doing my Ab work-out at the Gym, I was envisioning a crispy, juicy, crunchy, raw salad for dinner.

So I just threw together…. quick and simple…. 1 can of black … Continue reading ~ A Crispy, Juicy, Crunchy, Raw Black Bean, Vegy, Fruit Salad ~

~ A Simple Vegan Spaghetti Sauce and the Value of Potassium ~

I realize I have already posted a Spaghetti Dinner but I like this one better, so I had to share …. plus I’ve learned, in the meantime, how important Potassium is! Start by dicing up an onion, and 4 cloves of garlic, then saute them in a big pot with a little water. Maybe 5 minutes. Then add 2 stalks of celery diced up, 2 … Continue reading ~ A Simple Vegan Spaghetti Sauce and the Value of Potassium ~

~ Delicious Vegan Scalloped Potatoes for Bernard’s Birthday Party ~

I’ve made this recipe twice now, once without the mushrooms, onions and garlic, and last night, with the mushrooms, onions and garlic. I like the addition of these ingredients. This wasn’t in the recipe, but I thought I’d add it just because. I brought this dish along to a 55th Birthday Party Potluck Celebration, but unfortunately, did not know that the birthday boy doesn’t like … Continue reading ~ Delicious Vegan Scalloped Potatoes for Bernard’s Birthday Party ~

~ Creamy Vegetable Curry with Rice ~

This has quickly become a favourite of mine, and my 16 year old son even likes it! So awesome!!  I was given this book, “Oh She Glows“, last Christmas and I have been slowly going through the delicious recipes of Angela’s. It’s a beautiful book and the recipes are so yummy!  Per usual, I have made some changes….. Soak 1/2 cup of raw cashews for … Continue reading ~ Creamy Vegetable Curry with Rice ~
