Post V-Day Special Dinner

It’s a new year my friends, and I am wildly busy! My guess is you are too, so I’m keeping this short and sweet, and resharing this quick and easy recipe for veggie pasta sauce! It can be as simple as four typical pantry ingredients plus a fresh vegetable. For

Veggie Pasta Sauce

The Holidays are upon us! Here in Arizona, there is a tradition which marks this time of year – many of our friends, family, and neighbors are making tamales.

I figured this was the perfect time to share my delicious dessert tamale!

It is an after dinner treat to share with friends and family, whether it’s for the holidays a Mexican themed party, you can’t go wrong!

Enter the Banana

Now, I have no doubt that many of you are like me in that I hate to throw anything away.  I will come up with ideas of how to use it rather than lose it before it gets to the point of needing to have it find its way to the compost pile. Bananas seem to be one of my weaknesses, and so enters, banana bread!

First Comes the Banana … Then the Bread

I always seem to buy way more bananas than I can use. This is particularly true when I can’t pass up that large warehouse-type store. Here lives a bunch of organic bananas, so well priced that they must find their way into my shopping cart.  So, there is typically a loaf or two of banana bread lying around. Either on the counter, in the frig, or parked and at-the-ready in the freezer.

A quick and easy batter to pull together, it can be made with ingredients that you typically would already have in your pantry. No need to purchase anything special.

My Homemade Version of Vegan “Burger” Helper

Being a Jersey girl, Jersey corn represented the much-anticipated August harvest each year.  One of the great joys of being a transplanted Jersey girl now residing in the Sedona area is the elongated corn harvesting season.  Ah, what more can a vegan food-obsessed girl ask for?!

Well, different ideas for fresh corn, that’s for sure.

Hauser & Hauser Farms in Camp Verde, Arizona, has become my ‘go-to’ stop for fresh-picked corn that is grown without all those nasty chemicals.  And I know this because I often bring home some lovely worms that have opted to take up residence in the ears of corn that made their way back home with me.  I gladly welcome these worms to their new home, my raised bed garden, where I have a worm colony that gets happily fed my organic coffee grounds with other goodies on a daily basis.

Ah, so with the abundance of fresh-picked corn on the cob, we’ve been feasting upon just quickly blanched in boiling, salted water for no more than one minute, cut off the cob and pleasantly devoured raw in our nightly garden salad, fresh-baked corn muffins, and in a myriad of one-pot chilies, etc. (thrown in just at the end before serving so as not to ruin their fresh-off-the-cob raw-ness.

But alas, pancakes were calling out to me as well.  And with the plethora of fresh ears, corn pancakes aka breakfast for dinner, were top on the agenda for the day.

Quick and easy to whip up, here’s my recipe

About Linda Voorhis

I’ve always had a love for cooking and read cookbooks and cooking magazines the way other people read books. They inspire me to create my own recipes and have taught me the ‘science’ of cooking, most especially baking.

Julia Child (definitely nothing veg about her, but probably the greatest skills technician) and my maternal Italian grandmother, Mary, were my first mentors. With the advent of the celebrity chef and abundance of television cooking shows, inspiration continued to be placed before me. Food, its preparation with love, and the creativity it sparks within me, became a passion of mine.
