This weekend I’ve been up to some cooking creations for the saint (vegan, veggan and vegetarian). I wanted to share a few photos and some recipe instructions for a few of the things I made. I’m not a professional chef. I learned to cook by doing research (usually on Google and YouTube) and experimenting in the kitchen through trial and error. I season to my taste and use fresh or organic ingredients whenever possible. This is how I learned to cook. Enjoy.
Mr. Swinebottom and I have been cookin’. And we’re not cookin’ up trouble, at least not this time. Scurry on over and let’s see this masterpiece…
Smoothies are very quick to make and delicious. You don’t need a lot of items and hold that sugar, you crazy person. It’s not needed. Grab your frozen fruit, coconut milk, blender and let’s sashay!
On Sundays, I’ve been making big meals lately. Big meals equals leftovers which means lunch is done for tomorrow with extra servings to spare. Save money, eat great, write more. Ding, a ling ring…We have a winner. 🏆
Spaghetti for a crowd, here we go. A garlic bread recipe is thrown in at the end as a bonus. You are welcome. 🥖
Make your own spaghetti sauces, people. Garlic bread, too. It’s not expensive and it’s simple. Stop buying premade sauces that are pumped with salt and frozen garlic bread with ingredients you don’t have a hope of trying to pronounce. Your grandchildren will thank you.
Hello there. It’s been quite a week. It’s time for some good food. I give you a gift from…me. An Arcian specialty. Let me know if it helps your writing and gets your fingers twitching to finally kill off that annoying side character of yours.
Chef’s knife at the ready? Now, now…Kill your character later, after you’re done chopping the vegetables. Priorities. Let’s begin. 🔪
Here’s another cheap, healthy and yummy recipe for you, Arcians. Eat it to write Chapter 27 or to enjoy while reading my book, Memory Bound. Ahem. 📖
Here it is, my vegan Crock Pot chili, one of the Saint’s favorites. Good anytime of the year, but especially in the Winter. High protein, high flavor, easy to make. Creates lots of leftovers unless you decide to eat it all in one sitting.
Take a break from writing Chapter 46 and let’s fuel up, shall we?
You’ll need a chef’s knife, can opener, a cutting board, a Crock-Pot and a frying pan. A Labrador with an intense gaze who also starred in your book is optional, but highly recommended.
I researched some vegan recipes this morning. This recipe is mostly based on this wonderful dish by YouTuber Monson Made This. I subscribed to his channel recently and really love his calm, patient demeanor while he cooks and explains the food preparation to his viewers. I don’t like when chefs hurry (depending on the dish) or yell. Cooking is a relaxing art, I think, and should bring joy. And deliciousness.
If you’d like to see what I did, with the ingredients I had on hand, fly on, little Arcian.
Hello, Arcians. Need some fuel to write Chapter 29? Look no further. Here’s something I put together with some inspiration from Cheap Lazy Vegan. Rose made a recipe similar to this and I took it and flew.
I call it: lunch.
