Cutting A Sandwich Without Squishing The Insides Out

Cutting A Sandwich Without Squishing The Insides Out It may not always work, especially if it’s a mile high sandwich, in which case you don’t cut the sandwich. Otherwise…

Morning Star Veggie Dog Sandwich

Who says you have to eat a hot dog on a hot dog bun? What if you don’t have any? What if all the hot dog buns are pandemic-style stale? Well, then try the burger buns. Are they stale too? Not today is okay with me. Then burger buns it is! Serves 6

Beyond Sausage Straight Up Or On A Bun

Use Original or Sweet Italian, whichever you have on hand (beware the sweet is more hot than not). Many times I forego the bun to limit the carbs. Sometimes I just want the A-F meat. Who says I have to have the bun with it? The slaughter industries who mix the barn with the gardenContinue reading “Beyond Sausage Straight Up Or On A Bun”

Mayo substitutes for margarine when grilling sandwiches? Smoothes on easy – no bread tears from applying cold margarine to the bread before grilling it.

Home Fries and JUST EGG Omlet

HOME FRIES AND JUST EGG OMLET Perfect for restaurant fare. Holds up well. You heard of putting chopped scrambled egg in fried rice? Well, as I was going to do that I noticed some diced potatoes in the pantry, so went with them instead. Decided to use only salt, pepper and rosemary for seasoning and likedContinue reading “Home Fries and JUST EGG Omlet”

The Perversion Of Food

The Perversity Of Food What’s your lean? Where’s your marble? Why does it always have to be Chicken Parmesan? All you can do is copy?  Where’s your imagination? Somebody locked you into their culinary demands that never can be changed? What is this all about? Prey or pray tell? Mamma or government. Spread your culinaryContinue reading “The Perversion Of Food”

Undressing A Bottle

Now this is the way to undress a bottle – perfect label remover. Some labels remove easily, most don’t. I like to reuse my containers and why not, I paid for them. But label removable can be so difficult it’s not worth the time. Pick an edge and start peeling, just like that, easy asContinue reading “Undressing A Bottle”

Air Frying Tater Tots

Steve bought tater tots a while back. Little did I know the first food I try on my new air fryer would be those. Since most tater tots are crispy outside, and I’m the one with sensitive gums that have no back chewing teeth, I cooked half of them a shorter time, then crisped theContinue reading “Air Frying Tater Tots”

Standardized Viscosity

Standardized Viscosity Ever notice how there’s only one basic consistency of pudding or mousse or gelatin, even gravy? I don’t know who sets the standard, but it happens and for whatever reason everybody who sells pudding, mousse, gelatin, even gravy either copies one another or they settle into one viscosity level. A cook assigned toContinue reading “Standardized Viscosity”

AFC GLOBAL MISSIONS ABSOLUTE

I already know where I stand.Continue reading “AFC GLOBAL MISSIONS ABSOLUTE”

Aladdin’s Eatery WestLake, Ohio

Located at Crocker Park Open-Air Mall Steve and I went all the way out to Crocker Park for lunch and there wasn’t much in the way of animal-free options on anybody’s menu, so we settled on Aladdin’s Eatery knowing at least whatever we got wouldn’t contain animals. Well, not the entire menu is animal-free, butContinue reading “Aladdin’s Eatery WestLake, Ohio”

DONATO’S PIZZA LAKEWOOD, OHIO

We got there on the last day of the featured cauliflower wings. Don’t know if they’ll be coming back, but if people in the restaurant don’t tell the customer, then of course they won’t sell. That’s a feature I see in all restaurants whether we eat-in or take-out. Not the cauliflower wings, but employees whoContinue reading “DONATO’S PIZZA LAKEWOOD, OHIO”

Tofu Cloth Instructions

TOFU CLOTH INSTRUCTIONS ClipBoard: After a few years, my tofu cloth made from a polyester curtain sprang some holes. Since I didn’t have any spare curtain fabric, I used instead one of Steve’s old white cotton T-shirts. It work just as fine. For many recipes you’ll want to squeeze the liquid out of the blockContinue reading “Tofu Cloth Instructions”

TASTE THE BLOOD

SMOKED PAPRIKA is the key ingredient added to animal-free recipes tasting of blood. Other additives that enhance the smoked paprika thus the blood taste are garlic powder, dry mustard, turmeric and sea salt. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight AFC BLOOD RED ITALIAN SAUSAGE BURGER©

Replicating Recipes

REPLICATING RECIPES It seems that some recipes, no matter how you prepare them, turn out perfectly every time. Other recipes, no mater how precisely you follow the instructions, turn out differently every time. The reason for this is that some recipes are more susceptible to variations (no matter how slight) than others. If you experienceContinue reading “Replicating Recipes”

DUMBING DOWN RECIPES

DUMBING DOWN RECIPES I don’t dumb down recipes. Everybody does it in order to make the recipe sound as simple as possible. If I did it, I’d be defeating the purpose of teaching you the correct way, or at least the way I did it. Dumbing down a recipe leaves too much open for interpretationContinue reading “DUMBING DOWN RECIPES”

What Veggie Means Here

When I use the word “veggie” in my recipes or writing I’m referring to animal-free/plant-based. Veggie means vegetable. I am not referring to vegetarian, which usually means containing eggs and/or dairy. Eggs and/or dairy are not plants, so go figure on how the world now accepts eggs and dairy as plants.  

Restaurant Review Criteria

Pictures is how I do the review. Pictures of the food I order, eat and like. If I don’t like it, I don’t post it. Animal-Free is the primary non-negotiable criterion. Service is not what I review. If a restaurant is so dirty that I can’t stand the smell of it, I’ll walk out asContinue reading “Restaurant Review Criteria”

TO ANIMAL CHEFS re: MENU PLANNING FOR VEGANS

Since there’s a lot of negativity directed at people who don’t eat animals, it’s in the interest of the animal chefs, who have to design restaurant menus that include animal-free (vegan) options for these folks, to grasp the reasons behind their commitment. Viewing this well-made and respected documentary (Earthlings) helps the animal chef understand the decisionContinue reading “TO ANIMAL CHEFS re: MENU PLANNING FOR VEGANS”
