Vegan Queso | pamela salzman

My oldest daughter is a freshman in college, if you can believe it.  I totally cannot believe because I feel like I was just in college!  She’s going to school in Texas where she is enjoying a lot of (shocking, I’m sure) Tex-Mex food.  When we went to visit over Parents’ Weekend, our first meal…

During the holidays, I find myself saying quite often, “Oh, what the heck.  It’s the holidays,” as I add a handful of cheese or have an extra cookie.  But the “holidays” aren’t just one day.  They start around Halloween and stretch until New Years Day, at which point most people I know declare the beginning…

What’s your feeling about hors d’oeuvres on Thanksgiving?  I know most people (like me) spend so much time cooking so much food for arguably the biggest meal of the year.  No one wants his or her guests to fill up before they’ve even had one bite of turkey.  I get that.  But I also like…

Mini Chicken Tostadas Recipe (vegetarian adaptable)

mini chicken tostadas

You guys know I love watching football.  However, I’m not such a fan that I’ll watch just any game with teams that I don’t care much about.  So unfortunately for me, this has been a very boring season.  All the teams I root for didn’t make the playoffs.  And even the teams I root against…

cauliflower crust pizza

I always spend Christmas week in New York with my family and it’s a great time catching up, celebrating and eating.  Eating a lot.  It’s a bit hard for me to follow my normal food routine when I am there.  I don’t have my juicer, or access to the juice bars which are all over…
