When Cold outside Boy What are you Cooking

Well its cold outside in Alabama and all I can think off is eating something warm. So I’m going to make me some chili. I use a special ingredient in my chili that may seem a little weird but it work. I use a whole bottle of Guinness and it’s that chili on fire. Oh and you cant have chili with out the corn bread. Man this corn bread so good I think if the people at Jiffy bread tasted it they would change their recipe.

I had a great Thanksgiving holiday but I am so tired of leftovers and I really wanted so pasta. I set out to find a great recipe for vegan Alfredo sauce and I did. This sauce was so dang good I wanted to put it on everything. I made some whole wheat spiral pasta and I grilled some Garden Chicken Patties and sauteed some spinach yummy in our tummy lol.

Thanksgiving Feast

The Holidays are my favorite time of year. I started cooking late Tuesday Night( I will never cook late again lol). I didn't finish cooking until 4:30 am Wednesday. It was all worth it at the end because the food was great. I really hate that I didn't take pictures of this meal. I can't believe my meat eating family like my Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes they were the hit of the day.

Thanksgiving Menu

Mixed Green: Turnip, Collard and Mustard greens
Southern Fried Corn with Vegan Bacon crumbles
Southern Cornbread Dressing
Tofurkey Loaf
Vegan Mac and Cheese
Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes

I never though that I could make a whole Holiday feast without meat, but I did and I am so proud of myself. I didn't overeat this year but I was still sleepy after. Maybe they put something in the Tofurkey lol. Until next time Keep on Cooking God's goodness

I want a sandwich

The theme for today is comfort food. I have always been a fan of grilled chicken sandwiches and French fries from chilis. So yesterday my friend Stacy came over and I set out to make this happen. It turned out wonderful and I’m and I had to make it again for a quick Sunday dinner. The sandwich is pretty straightforward. It’s a Garden Vegan chicken, Vegan Bacon, Vegan Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato and Onions.

Inspired by Clay

Have you ever had a craving for pasta? Well today was that day for me. About two months ago I was with my boy Clay in Santa Monica Ca, and he invited me to dinner at his favorite restaurant. It was a small family own spot off in the cut, but very nice and cozy. Well Clay was raving about this doggone Vodka sauce all day so I had to try it. I must say it did not disappoint me. Today I want to make that sauce for dinner. I went online and found a great Vodka sauce recipe and I was off to Publix. I bought all the ingredients for the sauce and some fresh herbs. I also found some new Garden brand stuff Vegan chicken. I thought the sauce and the vegan chicken would go great together and I was so right. I added some whole-wheat pasta and the meal was complete.
