Buffalo Blue Cheese Vegetarian Taquitos

Buffalo Blue Cheese Vegetarian Taquitos by Alison's AllspiceThese buffalo blue cheese vegetarian taquitos were created completely on a whim.   Oftentimes I buy a few extra ingredients that aren’t on my grocery list at the store, simply because they are on sale. One night when I needed a quick weeknight meal, I riffled through the fridge and found some 6-inch tortillas, so I whipped up these taquitos .  I had seen a vegan buffalo taquitos pin on pinterest and thought it looked like a fantastic idea, but I hadn’t even look at the recipe.

Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Veggie Bacon

Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Veggie Bacon

I love to eat salads at restaurants.  They are always so much more indulgent than the salads I tend to make at home.  After trying blue cheese wedge salad at many restaurants,  I couldn’t resist remaking the recipe at home.  This salad recipe is made with iceburg lettuce.  This is the only time I use iceburg in my kitchen.  Other lettuces don’t hold up to my standards for a wedge.  The crispness and texture are perfect, and I can indulge in my blue cheese obsession.  The only true down side to iceburg lettuce is that it is not nutritious like other leafy greens.

Black and Blue Veggie Burger

Black and blue is a flavor combination that is hard to beat!  Tangy blue cheese and spicy blackening season complement each other so well, it is a classic combination.  Before I started to focus on whole foods, I would put blackening seasoning and blue cheese on frozen burgers.  This homemade black and blue veggie burger is so much better, and better for you!Black and Blue Veggie Burger Continue reading

Cracker Crust Pizza

Hello Friends!  This is another recipe fantastic for football season!  Some thin crust pizzas lack in crust texture. You get a slice and it flops in your hand.  The flavor is all there, but that’s just because you have a delivery service for ooey-gooey cheese.  This pizza crust is thin and crispy, the best of both worlds!
