Veggie Dill Dip

I used to love those sour cream dill dips that people served at wedding showers and parties.  Didn’t you think you were being so healthy… dunking carrots and broccoli into this creamy dip?! It did not matter if you could not tell that the carrot was a carrot anymore, and that the carrot was completely submersed in sour cream!! […]

Mango Tomato Salsa

My whole family is addicted to this salsa!  This recipe combines a few of my favorite foods:  tomatoes, mango, & cilantro!  Triple YUM!   This recipe is delicious with a great tortilla chip, or I think it would be really great over black or refried beans.  While hanging out at the pool this summer, I […]

Mediterranean Salsa

This is a delicious and versatile salsa! It is totally addicting which is okay because its 100% healthy and low in fat!  My dad and stepmom visited us this week in Vegas all the way from Florida.  We spent a lot of time eating and then eating some more – while we were eating lunch, […]

Creamy Basil Sauce

I was in the mood for a creamy sauce yesterday, but I wanted something that was lower in fat than the usual vegan cream sauces.  Using what I had at the house, I created this Creamy Basil Pesto that is perfect for whole wheat pasta, bean pastas (which I love!), used as a veggie sauce, […]

Romantic Vegan Dinner for Two (Anniversary Recipes)

We had the most relaxing and delicious evening last night!  Our 4 year anniversary could not have been better.  I have been working on a few recipes for our anniversary dinner, and I was very pleased with how these turned out.  I wanted to make something a little fancier than usual, but something that was […]

Classic Oil-Free Hummus

This is my mom’s favorite snack! I made this for my mom as her first SOS-Free recipe.  Now she makes this recipe every week to keep in her refrigerator as handy and healthy snack!  I have always loved hummus, but its so dang salty when bought pre-made…not to mention full of oil. Ugh! I can’t even handle it. […]

Seafood Vegan Dip

A beach breeze must be blowing through Las Vegas!  My last post was Tropical Smoothies, and now this! 🙂 If you are eating a plant based vegan diet and sometimes miss the taste of the sea…this creamy dip is for you!  This appetizer dip is great anytime of the day, and I love to eat […]

“Half the Fat” Pineapple Guacamole

Are you avocado obsessed?! This recipe will satisfy your cravings for creamy avocado, but it won’t do the damage to your waistline.  🙂  I first encountered Pineapple Guacamole at a delicious Mexican restaurant in Texas years ago…actually it was bacon pineapple guacamole, but let’s forget the bacon part! Haha! I eat a low fat vegan […]

Chocolate Blueberry Salad Dressing

I love a huge delicious salad!  You know what I dislike the most about a huge delicious salad? That would be when a nutritious salad is covered in oil…aka traditional salad dressing.  OMG. Stop it.  Eeeekkk! A salad should be one of the most nutritious meals of the day!  The oil is adding 100% fat […]

Easy Marinara Sauce over Spaghetti Squash

When I think about nostalgic childhood meals, one of my favorites was my dad’s spaghetti.  I remember his secret trick was to add a little brown sugar to the sauce to give it that delicious sweet yet savory flavor.  This marinara sauce is reminiscent of his delicious family recipe, but this one is extra special […]
