Ann’s Eggless Blueberry Muffins

These wholesome eggless blueberry muffins are quick and easy to make and only take 25 minutes in the oven.

Freeze Those Avocados

Avocado season is in full swing, and we saw some super deals when we were on the road over the holidays: $5.00 for five avocados, or even better, $10.00 for fifteen.

Vegetarian Asparagus & Tomato Quiche

Every Christmas I’m on the lookout for delicious, nutritious, uncomplicated, vegetarian dishes to accompany the more traditional fare.
