Are green smoothies “over” yet? I hope not because I’ve been acting like I just discovered them. After a winter of oatmeal with berries, oatmeal with cherries, oatmeal with apples, oatmeal with oatmeal, I’m happy the weather has warmed up and I can drink my breakfast rather than gum it. And I love that I […]

I’m usually all about the food–check out the hundreds of recipes in my Recipe Index–but I received so many requests for photos of Loki that I couldn’t say no. I think a few of you are almost as obsessed with Loki as I am! Loki is an indoor cat who is determined to be outside. […]

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. My surgery went very well, and I’m up and about and feeling more normal every day. Your emails and messages of support have meant so much to me and are surely speeding up my recovery. Resting and recuperating gave me an unexpected opportunity to sample other people’s […]

Before I get to the recipe, I have a favor to ask of you. On Tuesday, I’ll be having surgery, which will probably be followed by a few weeks of rest and follow-up treatments. I’m positive that I will be fine, but I may not be posting or answering email as much in the coming […]

This is probably the fastest chili I’ve ever made without using canned beans. The secret is black beluga lentils, which cook quickly and keep their shapes, giving this chili a very hearty texture. I combined them with split red lentils, which cook just as quickly but break down to create a thicker broth. Together they […]

I’ve been having so much fun following our new kitten, Loki, around with a camera that I haven’t cooked anything new this week. Instead, I’d like to show all of you fans of Loki a side of him you haven’t seen yet. In most of his photos, he’s staring soulfully into the camera, the picture […]

Laziness and lack of planning. If anyone ever asks me the source of my “culinary creativity,” I will have to admit that I owe it all to the fact that I put off cooking until the last minute and then have to break cooking rules and take shortcuts in order to get dinner on the […]

Last week I shared the Simple Chopped Salad that my whole family continues to love. My daughter would be happy to eat it every night, and she even asked me to make it for her school lunch. For my own lunchtime salad, I prefer something a little spicier and without the high-fat olives and walnuts, […]

A minor miracle occurred at my house on Thursday night when my teenager went back for a third helping of salad. And not just any salad–a salad that contained radishes, which she “hates.” We were having the salad with two of her favorites dishes, mac and cheese and roasted asparagus, and it was no surprise […]

It’s been a big week here in the FatFree Vegan household. First of all, last Saturday we got a new family member! If you’re a Facebook follower or NewsBites reader, you’ve already been subjected to the cuteness that is our still unnamed kitten. But in case you’ve missed one of my press releases, here’s the […]
