I decided to step out of my comfort zone and into the world of making a cooking video! For my first venture into this unknown territory I played it safe and did all my cooking off camera and invite you into my kitchen to take a peek at the finished products. This allowed me to get my feet wet so to speak without being completely terrified and making a fool of myself! At least that is what I hope. I told hubby Tom I wanted to make a test video first just so I could get a feel for what I wanted to say and how the video was set up and so forth. He said take one was good enough to use so, I went with it. Of course after viewing it again I saw all the things I forgot to say or things I wished I had said a different way. At the end there is a long pause where he was mouthing to me to wrap it up! I just have to laugh about it now and hope that I get better with practice. I will post the recipe links for the recipes mentioned in the video.
Donna’s Cheeze Sauce is a recipe that my friend Donna came up with and it’s the best plant based home made cheeze sauce I have tasted. You will want to use it on your baked potatoes, your veggies and as a dip for oven fries!
My daughter and I both love the Chili Lentils for tacos. It makes a big batch and they freeze well. Today I cheated and used a package of Trader Joe’s already cooked lentils – so easy. I like easy.
In the video I forgot to mention what I was going to do with the acorn squash I roasted. This is one of my favorite fall recipes. First of all I love acorn squash and the filling is to die for. This past weekend I made a double batch of the filling to take to a pot luck. Instead of stuffing a squash I roasted some delicata squash and diced it to add to the stuffing mixture. It turned out really good! Curry Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash.
Hearing from you the reader makes me so happy. Seriously I love getting to know people through my blog and have even had the wonderful opportunity to meet some of you in real life!
I plan on making more videos and would enjoy having your ideas of what you would like to see in future videos. Please leave me a comment and share your ideas.
Thank you for all the support.
A Little Nutmeg Nugget: When I started this blog in January of 2010 I followed what I understood to be a healthy version of the standard American diet, ironically also known as the “SAD” diet. As interest in my own health and how it was affected by the food I ate evolved, I transitioned to a whole food plant based diet also known as “WFPB” diet. I have wrestled with the fact that this blog still contains all those posts and recipes from the SAD way of eating I have left behind. I no longer advocate for anyone to eat that way. At this time I am leaving those recipes and posts here. It is a record of my journey and how I came to follow a WFPB way of eating. It is my hope that those who still come here for those old recipes will be curious about what I am doing now. Perhaps they will dip their toes across the line as I did and try some plant based recipes and learn more about the health benefits.
