CHUNG’S VEGETABLE POTSTICKERS

Was I impressed with these potstickers or what? Steve too. I never have high expectations for prepared veggie frozen foods, so I was pleasantly surprised by the quality, texture, flavor and the way they cooked up ( no breakage). The directions say to heat  2 T. oil in skillet on medium-high heat. Turn heat toContinue reading “CHUNG’S VEGETABLE POTSTICKERS”

TOFU SHIRATAKI MACARONI

I like everything about tofu pasta.  A great invention. I made a stir-fry the other night, then added these at the end. They only take a few minutes to prepare. Very easy. They don’t taste and texture like grain pasta, but who cares when both taste and texture please the palate. CHECK OUT VEGGIE SAUSAGEContinue reading “TOFU SHIRATAKI MACARONI”

MANN’S STRINGLESS SUGAR SNAP PEAS

One thing I don’t like about sugar snap peas are the strings, especially when they’re frozen. When fresh, I can remove the strings, though it’s time-consuming and a nuisance. I like the fact that these don’t have strings. And they’re so tender and sweet, requiring very little cooking.

SKIPPY PEANUT BUTTER

When I was a kid, my mother always bought Skippy brand. Skippy was the ‘IT’ peanut butter back then. She also read Prevention Magazine and consumerism reports, which made her switch to Jif – for whatever reason. I hadn’t had Skippy peanut butter in decades till a few days ago, and it tasted more likeContinue reading “SKIPPY PEANUT BUTTER”

ALMOND DREAM NON-DAIRY YOGURT – LOW FAT

If I were cutting back on my fat consumption, yogurt wouldn’t even come to mind. Yet, I can never eat just one of these containers at a time, so maybe the low fat isn’t a bad idea. Basically, I like all the animal-free yogurts I try. Each is a little different in flavor, texture andContinue reading “ALMOND DREAM NON-DAIRY YOGURT – LOW FAT”

STONYFIELD O’SOY SOY YOGURT

A couple of years ago Steve brought this yogurt home. I read the label and it had milk on it. I was disappointed because a lot of vegan Facebook friends recommended it. I even took a picture of it and posted it on Facebook. Well, Steve brought it home again a few days ago. IContinue reading “STONYFIELD O’SOY SOY YOGURT”

FAR EAST HOT-CHINESE MUSTARD

I fully expected this mustard to taste and texture like the hot mustard I get at a Chinese restaurant. Not so. It has vinegar in it, which tones down the heat a little, and is considerably thicker. I like it as a variant of the traditional Chinese mustard, and have used it as a condimentContinue reading “FAR EAST HOT-CHINESE MUSTARD”

GRANDMOTHER’S FIG PASTRY FILLING

Now this was a surprise to me. I bought it to make fig cookies, but instead ending up smearing it on toast, any time of day or night – with or without a nut butter. I look forward to trying it on black Russian bread – one of my favorites. I’ll get to the cookiesContinue reading “GRANDMOTHER’S FIG PASTRY FILLING”

SO DELICIOUS CULTURED COCONUT MILK – PASSIONATE MANGO

Yogurt and fruit mixed. Thin, but then sometimes I like my dessert puddings thin too, so I enjoyed. I still don’t know why all yogurt makers fill the cups about one half inch from the top. Every time I open one it looks like somebody has already taken a couple spoonfuls!
