As we’re in self-imposed quarantine, and we want to avoid wandering around in the (potential) contagion zone, it’s time to do a Use What Ya Got vegetarian meal for Fast and Abstinence Friday
It’s Fast and Abstinence Friday again, so time to bust out one of my favourite vegetarian recipes. I cannot stress enough how easy and how delicious this is. Once again, I struggle with the “denial” part because this is just so supremely good. And it’s leafy greens. You’re totally supposed to eat leafy greens. And… […]
I didn’t actually eat meat. But it tasted like meat, and it has a good mouth-feel like real meat, so did I actually do the spirit of the exercise?

Pasta and Peas is on my absolute top 5 La Famiglia’s comfort food list. If you can’t have chicken soup because you’re observing the abstinence of, say, Fridays during Lent, or Christmas Eve, you can bet that there’s gonna be Pasta and Peas. I loves me all the pasta, from Mac and Cheese from a […]
So, it’s Lent now, and that means no meat on Fridays. Rigatoni Pasta Pie is a dish that is impressive to look at, but not really difficult to make. If you have someone you want to impress, do this. You can totally do it – I know you can.
