The last time I posted this soup, I was whining, because the weather was in the 60s and going to drop to the 50s. Right now it is 50 degrees and going lower. Tomorrow will be even colder. This is our winter right now. So what better than a bowl of Sweet Potato Chipotle Bisque? Pure comfort food for Jim and me!
Jim and I have been hibernating today. The after effects of Hurricane Patricia are still with us. Who would have thunk that a hurricane in the Pacific would have this big an impact? It’s been raining since early yesterday morning. We go a lot of rain. Not the 18 inches that had been expected. But a good amount. Overall, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Some flash flood warnings. If you are smart, you just stay home.
One good thing that happened was that with all the heavy winds, most of the dead fronds came off my palm trees. Those trees is about 50 feet tall and still growing. I had been planning on getting my tree guy to come and clean off the tree for winter. Not now.
With the rains the temperature is dropping. It’s about 66 now and will get a lot cooler. Jim just told me that the wind was 37 miles per hour. This is not our usual October weather. It is definitely soup weather. I pulled out my recipe for Sweet Potato Chiplote Bisque. I have been making this soup for awhile. I actually do it in the summer. It is such a great soup. I love the sweetness of the potato with the kick from the chipotle pepper.
I originally got the recipe from Creative TV’s show ‘Vegan Mashup’. So yes, this is all vegan. You can use regular dairy products and it will turn out fine. Later I found the recipe on line at The Vegan Latina. Read the rest of this entry »

I was web surfing yesterday(yes on New Years Day) and came across something old. Sloppy Joes! I use to love them when I was a kid. When I made them. My mom’s sloppy Joes were definitely different. This recipe is reminiscent of how I made them. I think that you will love this recipe!
Let me start by saying… these ain’t your mama’s manwiches and you’ll never use jarred, canned, or packaged sloppy joe mix again. These are hearty, rich, and full of flavor. Since my husband and I became pescetarians I haven’t even thought about making sloppy joes, but when I saw Beyond Meat crumbles in the grocery […]
With Labor Day coming up in the next week, I thought that I would find something to post for you labor day picnic. Here is something that I posted a year ago. These dishes are easy to make and delicious!
As a vegetarian, when you go to picnics, it’s hard to leave it feeling like you had a decent. It’s even harder living in Texas, where BBQ is ubiquitous. The only vegetable dishes are …

It is getting hot on Galveston Island. It looks like we are going to stay in the mid 90s over the next week. So! I decided to do a replay of my Classic Cold Noodles with Peanut Sauce.
This is spicy and crunchy. The salad always tastes better the next day! The recipe makes a big batch that is several dinners for two
I live in a place where we really enjoy food! We love to get together for breakfast. If there’s a meeting you will always have someone bringing something to eat. With all the talking we do, w…

I am addicted to traveling to far away places. Especially places, that seem out of the way. Places that few people know about! I saw this post about a spicy salsa, that sounded so yummy. When I checked out Peachy Tales blog, I found that she was from Mauritius!
I don’t know a lot about the Islands, but as Jim says “Google is your friend!” It’s in Africa. The Mauritian Culture is incredibly diverse. The religions are diverse. And everything is reflected in their cuisine. I so want to go there now!
Mangiare! Mangiare! ( Eat! Eat! ) Those were the words that my Mama would always be screaming to me back during my childhood days. I still recall how I used to hate eating tomatoes back then may it be when Mama makes piquant salsa, or just plain red sauce. Now there is no greater fan […]

The weather we have had over the past week has not been typical for us at all! Temperatures of 100 t0 101! I live on a beautiful island where the weather is pretty moderate. When the people who live on the mainland have temps of > 105, we are usually a balmy 95 degrees.
I saw this recipe for ice tea and immediately felt cooler. I love the idea of making it in a ball. And lime is so much more refreshing than lemon, don’t you think? Thanks for this lovely recipe!
Well, did you ever get that feeling, that no matter how much you drink your thirst does not cease? Quite typical in the summer, isn’t it? No wonder when the temperatures breach 35ºC / 95ºF, the body is constantly producing sweat to cool off and thus depletes all the water reservoirs. Sounds like a great […]

Living in cow country(Texas), I am so jealous. We are starting to see cities with food trucks around the state. However, vegetarian? I think we are going to have a little bit of a wait for those.
At least restaurants are much more vegetarian friendly these days. When we moved here we were lucky to get a Cesar’s salad without the meat. I would ask for a vegetarian entree for dinners and receptions and get boiled vegetables. Yuck!
I was at a banquet recently, where my main entree was a delicious tofu dish. Times are a changin’!
SO here is a post about all the food trucks you see lingering around the streets of Vancouver. This is the first roundup of some of the trucks – I have listed four of them with vegetarian options. Over a period of time I am going to do more posts with food trucks. Hope you […]

The first time that I ever ate fire roasted tomatoes was at a international food fair. It was a bruschetta. I thought that I had died and gone to heaven. The intensity of the tomatoes with a smoky undertone. I loved it. I loved it even more when I found out that these were canned tomatoes. I could use them anytime of the year.
Here is a great salsa recipe to make.
You can make this salsa anytime! It is a simple salsa made with canned fire roasted tomatoes and a few other ingredients. Get out the food processor and in a few minutes you are done! You will need: 1/2 -1 fresh jalapeno pepper (ha- la payn-yo! pepper) 1/4 -1/2 white onion 2 garlic cloves a […]
