Four new recipes and cooking as meditation

I'm back --- after most of a month spent anticipating and then celebrating the wedding of our son (who made this website.) Lots of planning,lots of friends, lots of fun, lots of plant-based meals to make! And now ---- four new plant-based recipes to share with all of you.

You may already have discovered the Peach Cream Pie on our website --- a delicious dessert Donna made for our July potluck:

Earth Holder and PlantPure projects

I have two more recipes from our Summer Potluck for you this time. Donna made a Lemon Meringue Pie using that new idea for meringue --- "aquafaba" ---- using the water from a can of chickpeas instead of eggwhites. It was delicious!

Our group and our recipe collection -- both growing

Our circle is growing ---- George in Pennsylvania is starting a new effort in the Earth Holder Sangha to promote plant based eating and now we have three more Earth Holders joining us: Marge Wurgel in San Diego, Heather Mann in Charleston, South Carolina, and Joaquin Carral in Willimantic, Connecticut. I'm looking forward to learning what plans they have for inspiring more people to eat this way....Laura Raine in Vancouver decided to join us after coming to our recent potluck in Portland, and Joanne Barrett is joining us from New York City. Welcome, everyone!

Positive steps all over the world

My husband made homemade sauerkraut last fall and we are down to the last bottle. It will be hard to wait for the kraut cabbages that only ripen in October. Believe me, homemade kraut is way better than the store-bought kind! For the sauerkraut lovers among us, here is a tasty way to enjoy it:

A movie, a call for compassion, and thoughts from Thay

First of all, I want to say hearty thanks to two Helpful Cooks, Cathy and Tom here in Portland who are helping me with the website! Cathy has already posted two things --- a movie recommendation for "Vegan Everyday Stories"--- and the last recipe from our April potluck, Brooks' Roasted Cauliflower with Chickpeas, Tomatoes and Spinach. You will find both on the Home page: the movie description is on the left, under Active Discussions, and the recipe is on the right, under both Newest Recipes and Recipe of the Week:
