Welcome to my food blog.
I try to eat healthy which is difficult because I am currently living in the midwest and I was raised in the DEEP South, which means I grew up with the philosophy that absolutely everything can be fried and gravy is as necessary as salt.
Time to revamp this intro a bit.
I gave up meat in November of 2010 and slowly evolved into a vegan diet and lifestyle.
I live with four other people in my house (all omnis) but my 13 year old boys are pretty veg receptive. I raised them as lacto-ovo vegetarians until they were about four.
I do occasionally eat faux meat and tofu but not often and my recipes will reflect that.
Usually, the meals I make are for one but some days I cook for five, some for three and sometimes just for my lunches. I bring my lunch everyday since a vegan meal in the middle of the bible belt is hard to come by.
I hate recipes that have 400 ingredients or take hours to prepare and cook. Who has that kind of time? Sometimes I want to prepare something elaborate but, most nights I like to keep it simple.
I cook more by instinct than by recipes and I love trying recipes that I can veganize.

Vegan thin crust pizza from Patxi’s Chicago Pizza in San Francisco. Garlic, spinach, red onions and Daiya on vegan sauce and crust. We didn’t have time to get the Chicago style deep dish this time but I highly recommend the deep dish. Patxi’s makes the best deep dish out side of Chicagoland. Yum…..
Vegan pizza for lunch.
Mushrooms, spinach, black olives, bell peppers, tomatoes and Daiya mozzarella shreds. Sprinkled the whole thing with Italian seasoning right before baking.
