Banana Orange Muffins

Banana Orange Muffins wasn't at all what I intended to make today. I was going to make my Pecan Muffins (with lots of fruit) but I didn't have most of the ingredients. Now, I never run out of cinnamon as I always try to have backups of everything. You know, put the item on the grocery list before you actually run out. But here I was even out of cinnamon. About that time, my husband walked into the kitchen and said, "What are you doing?"  I said, "I don't really know!"...

Healthy Snack Recipe: Oat & Brown Rice Nut Snacks

This Healthy Snack Recipe, specifically Oat and Brown Rice Nut Snacks, keeps me from eating less healthy foods when I am nearly always looking for something to snack on after dinner.   My go-to after dinner snack is usually fruit. Watermelon or cantaloupe in the summer. Oranges, tangerines, or grapefruit in the winter. But sometimes I just don't feel like fruit.   And that's when these lovely little snacks come in handy. After dinner. I don’t know about you, but the longer the day wears on, the hungrier I get. Especially if I’m not busy....

Cheesy Meatless Vegan Pasta

Well, I must say. This is one cheesy meatless vegan pasta among my healthy vegan recipes that all of my family likes. Hooray for me!

No Oil Vegan Asparagus Risotto

This healthy vegan recipe, Oil free Asparagus Risotto with Peas and Mushrooms, is one of the best risotto recipes I have ever had. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Asparagus Risotto. Problem is with this dish, it is traditionally made with cheese. Every time I see it on a restaurant menu, my taste buds start their thing. So I just had to start making this at home.   Though vegan, my family even loves this dish. In fact, they request it. And that is definitely saying something. I feel quite confident, that once you've...

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Appetizer

When my friend, Charlotte, brought this Red Bell Pepper Appetizer, a Healthy Vegan Recipe, over to our place for dinner one night when we were in the islands, it didn’t last very long.

Invite friends over for a meal, but instead of a sit down dinner, have a buffet of strictly appetizers - finger foods. You could have a variety of about...
