chick pea bars or vegan blonde brownie...I googled it and came across a blog with a recipe I thought might work for me and adapted it. You can do the same and adapt it to your liking. I am keeping them in the fridge. They are gf ef df sf but not sugar free and have mini choc chips (Enjoy Life). They are delicious!

GF noodle casserole...not the age old tuna anymore.

I used to love to make and eat tuna noodle casserole...wellllll now that I am trying to be a vegan I decided to try making a variation. I boiled GF noodles and sauteed chopped mushrooms in olive oil then thickened it with GF baking mix and added rice milk until desired thickness, stirring constantly. I also added salt and pepper. My salad has Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, chopped onion and carrots and cucumber. I spritzed the salad with extra virgin olive oil and added salt and pepper. YUM!

Hello again!
I have not posted since the Summer of 2012. I could not access this site for some reason and stopped trying. I tried today and was able to get on so I will be blogging once again.
I find being gluten free, casein free ( I do some cheese on gf pizza because I got tired of trying the alternatives and not being pleased), soy free, egg free, and for the most part vegan with some meat, chicken, and fish slipping in when I order out and there are soups or dishes that are not vegan.
I embarked on this trying to be vegan regime after ending up in the ER with stomach pains and noticing that for days after that I only had vegetables and rice and did not have meat, fish, or poultry and felt better. I guess I would call what I do...plant based diet.
I am looking forward to getting back to blogging. I have missed it. I spend time at facebook, but this site has been wonderfully cathartic and helpful  to me in the past so here I am...back again!
