    Review of Cook Off Bright Blessings, Film Lovers! I found another African gem of a film, and this one made history as being the first one from Zimbabwe to sign a deal to be shown on Netflix!

    Television Show Review & Interview With Jane Velez Mitchell – A New Day/A New Chef

    Television Show Review – A New Day A New Chef     I was glad to be asked to review a new vegan cooking show; personally, I had been having some difficulty sticking to my vegan diet and watching this show helped. As we are all aware, plant-based foods are fast overtaking animal-based foods in sales. Even those who are avowed meat eaters will occasionally have a plant-based meal. This is a boon to our bodies, our environment and, of course, the animals. Because of this fast growing trend in taste and lifestyle, more and more guidance is needed for those who wish to try veganism. Cookbooks abound, but it…

    Yorkshire Pudding I thought for this months recipe I would do one of my favorite sides. Yorkshire Pudding. Nope its not a pudding at all, the name sure does confuse a lot of people.

The Yorkshire pudding was known as a “dripping pudding” because of its use of the juices from the meat — and was served as an appetizer to fill up the person due to the relative scarcity and usually small portions of meat that would be served. It is a British recipe started about 1737. It has been changed up a…

    Witchy Fingers Stew aka String Bean Stew   Today we are going to make a delicious stew that I call witchy fingers stew since the string beans look like a witch’s fingers. It is a great stew to serve up for Beltane. It has a little kick to it but if your not into spicy you can omit the cayenne pepper. The spice is for the fire of Beltane. The Earthy string beans, onions, celery and meat go so well together. Beltane is a time to celebrate fertility of the Earth, fire and abundance. It is celebrated on May 1st in the Northern Hemisphere and on November 1st in the…
