Happy Birthday Hippy Donuts

It’s my birthday and I’ll eat it if I want to!!! Happy Hippy Birthday to ME! Today is the big two nine, so I am celebrating by eating the recipes that I wanted to try but haven’t had the money or the time. First in line this morning, for breakfast…Vegan Donuts! I used the recipe […]

Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo With Mushrooms

I really love Alfredo sauce. I have always been a white sauce over red sauce kind of gal. Ever since we went vegan, I have been craving a great bowl of Fettuccine Alfredo, but I really didn’t know how I was going to substitute that heavy cream sauce. Incidentally, you can make an amazing “cheese” […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Banana Breakfast Shake

Pumpkin pie is by far, my favorite dessert ever made. As soon as fall rolls around I start coming up with ideas to utilize all of the cans of pumpkin my mom has managed to pawn off on me during the year. This morning, I was in the mood for a good pumpkin pie breakfast […]

Vegetables & Dumplings Hippy Homemaker Style

If there is one thing I just LOVED to eat, that my mother would make when I was a kid, it was Chicken n’ Dumplings. There are two ways that your dumplings can turn out; light and fluffy, or dense and doughy. My dad was a big proponent of the “light and fluffy” dumpling, so […]

Asian Inspired Ginger Sesame Coleslaw

I was really craving a good cold Asian salad with cabbage. I ended up deciding that I was going to make a coleslaw but dress it up with a Ginger Sesame dressing that would be to die for in this slaw! It really was delicious! I wasn’t sure at first if I was just loving […]

Vegetarian Hawaiian Sloppy Joes For Labor Day Deliciousness

The first time that I tried to make sloppy joe’s vegetarian style, I used tofu. I thought that I could just stir fry the tofu the way that I used to brown ground beef. That batch of “sloppy joe’s” was soooo wrong. I had no idea how to use tofu, so I hadn’t properly pressed […]

There is NO Way That Lasagna Was Vegan…Just NO Way!!!

I have to say, I was not a believer. I couldn’t imagine that I could find a vegan recipe for Lasagna that was ACTUALLY a replacement. I didn’t think that there would be one that tasted SO good, I could bring it home to my mother to try. She would adore this. I am most […]

Mini Potato Skins Stuffed With Avocado Salsa

I got this recipe from Vegetarian Times (Pg. 52, August/September 2012) magazine. It’s actually a Chloe Coscarelli recipe also in her new cookbook, “Chloe’s Kitchen”. This was soooo good. We just ate it tonight and I am so stuffed just from eating these alone. I didn’t even end up making a side dish as this […]
