About Me

I have been an Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian for a few years and am considering making the switch to a full Vegan diet. I decided to become a vegetarian because I could no longer disassociate the meat on my plate from the loving, kind and peaceful animal it had once been. I have always been an animal lover, so I guess this was a natural progression. I am not a diet or nutrition expert by any means, I am just a woman on a mission to eat better, feel better and live better.

Christmas Dinner

Hello!  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Yule, and Happy Festivus!  This is why I usually say "Happy Holidays" because there are so many people of different faiths celebrating holidays this time of year and I want to respect the beliefs of each of my friends regardless of their faith.  I hope you all have been blessed enough this season to be surrounded by those you love, creating wonderful memories and enjoying great food.

I haven't posted much these past two weeks because I've been so busy preparing and shopping for today, plus my mom still has appointments for her cancer treatment and I always go with her to each one.  I apologize that it's been so long.  I'm sure the two of you that read my blog have been busy as well and probably haven't noticed.

I just wanted to quickly share a recipe with you that I tried today for the first time.  In a word, it was AMAZING.  It's so creamy, sweet and decadent, and it's simply the best way I've ever had sweet potatoes.  This is now a definite must have for many, many years to come.

The recipe I am referring to is Sweet Potato and Kale Gratin.  I got this recipe from one of my favorite vegetarian blogs I follow, Oh My Veggies.  She knows what she's doing because I love her recipes.  You simply HAVE to try this.  I am not a huge sweet potato fan, or at least, I didn't used to be, but this dish has made me a believer.  I have a love affair with kale, so that didn't surprise me so much, but pairing it with the sweet potatoes, heavy cream and nutmeg is out of this world!

I hope you all give this a try.  It doesn't have to be for a large meal, either, just be sure to make plenty because it won't last long!

Happy Holidays to each of you.  I wish you nothing but peace, love and happiness.
