Raw Vegan Chocolate Truffles from Matthew Kenney & Meredith Baird

This 12 hour course covers a lot! Talk about bang for your buck. This class is awesome! What a fantastic weekend experience for a friend, or better yet, an amazing experiential gift for that special someone in your…

Vegan Cauliflower Sage Stuffing with Way Better Snacks

Thanksgiving is in three days, and we are planning our holiday menu. Scott and I are spending Thanksgiving in NYC with our dear friends Kat and Wayne. We are all attending the famous Candle 79 vegan thanksgiving feast, and we are so excited! So, here is my last Thanksgiving recipe for this year, and I wanted to celebrate Way Better tortilla chips today. These non-gmo tortilla chips are the healthiest ones I've seen. They're made from sprouted ingredients, and are gluten-free, kosher,…

Lemon Garlic Green Beans with Sliced Almonds

I threw this simple alkaline vegan holiday dish together last Christmas with some simple fresh ingredients that were on hand at the house, and the results were spectacular. The dish was a huge hit, and I have been saving them to share for these holidays! I served these at our Thanksgiving potluck last weekend and they were a sensation. Instead of using canned soup, cream, butter or other toxic flavorings you find in so many holiday green bean dishes, this recipe is light with a…

Vegan Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes

No self-respecting thanksgiving dinner is complete without a truckload of delicious creamy mashed potatoes. I absolutely love them! It is a special treat for me, as I don’t eat potatoes on a daily, or even a weekly basis. Following a mostly alkaline vegan diet, and being susceptible to candida, I eat them sparingly. When I do eat potatoes, I always eat red skinned potatoes, the only potatoes allowed on the Body Ecology Diet, an anti-candida immune boosting regime that successfully…

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Candied Maple Pecans

Our Holiday Giveaway is proving to be very popular. I will announce the winner on Dec 11th, so good Luck! Until then, I will continue sharing some fabulous vegan holiday recipes I am making at home with my cookware. As I mentioned when I posted the Spicy Roasted Candied Maple Pecans earlier this week, I was inspired by Bryant Terry’s Thanksgiving menu in the holiday issue of the Vegetarian Times to add some candied maple pecans to a vegan version of my mother-in-law Sandra Hanes’s…

Candied Maple Pecans from Stacey Aswad

I survived Hurricane Sandy in NYC, and I'm back in L.A feeling incredibly fortunate. My love and thoughts go out to the victims of this horrible tragedy, and my admiration and respect extended to the hard-working rescue and support teams that brought the city back to life. It was such as surreal time walking up the street to Penn Station right before the storm. As the wind picked up and the rain started, Scott and I stood there bewildered as we looked up the street and didn't see…

This incredible vegan paella comes from Mariel Hemgingway - actor, presenter, author, speaker, environmental activist, yogi, and holistic living goddess.

At the age of thirteen, Mariel took Hollywood by storm with her debut performance in Lipstick. Four years later her work in Woody Allen’s Manhattan earned…

Vegan Tofu Walnut Stuffing from Blossom Restaurant

This tofu walnut stuffing from Blossom Restaurant will blow your mind. This vegan jewel in NYC is one of my favorite Manhatten haunts. It's pretty hard to walk around the Chelsea area without "Blossoming!" Pamela and her trusty team have got the vegan market covered, and they fly the plant-based flag in spectacular fashion. I met Pamela Blackwell (the owner) and her rock star manager, R.J Thompson, when I strolled into the new Blossom Du Jour location in midtown a few months ago.…
