Fresh Figs with Strawberry Cream

When ready to serve, split figs and place on dessert dishes. Top with chilled cream.


Watermelon-Mango Smoothie

1 ripe mango, cubed
2 cups cubed seedless watermelon


Fruit and Tofu Shooters

1/2 pineapple, peeled and chopped
1 banana, peeled and sliced …



Mix all ingredients well. I used a plastic container, with top, and shake like a palm tree during Hurricane Andrew. This drink is wonderful cold, but served steaming hot, it’s pure heaven.

Maple-Nut Raisin Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese

As a poor vegan college student, I have to be creative. I just reached the culmination of my cooking achievements with this cream cheese. I have to share it with someone, I hope someone out there likes it.

Bryanna’s Low-Fat Creamy “Caesar” Dressing

Traditional Caesar dressings are primarily oil, but why drench a fat-free green salad in oil? This delicious dressing makes enough for two BIG salads, and also makes a good dip for raw veggies.


Tofu Breakfast Burritos

This was in a “Mother’s Day Brunch” menu in Cooking Light. I was very impressed! I changed cheese to soy cheese, but other than that, I thought it was great that they were using tofu!
