When I was a kid, I loved tater tots! Any finger foods were a plus but tater tots were the best. Crunchy, greasy, little potato bites, sure to please! I’ve even been known to order a side with my husband and enjoy them from time to time.
I stumbled on a new recipe for Zucchini Tots that sparked my curiosity! I had a ripe zucchini begging to be used and a hankering for a salty snack. I modified the recipe to “veganize” it, popped the buggers in the oven and before long Jerry and I ate all of them wondering what happened to them so quickly! : - )
This recipe is a much healthier than the standard tater tots, especially any found eating out, plus it is really simple to make. Enjoy it time and time again, I know we will!
This meal is like having salsa in a skillet with lime infused asparagus on top of a bed of rice. The flavor is sensational, the meal is satisfying and it leaves your body feeling invigorated from all the spices and vitamin C!
Take some some rice and place it in the rice cooker and press go! What a great invention, I love our rice cooker! Then take some nopales cactus, 1/2 of a white onion, 4 serrano peppers, 2 tomatoes, a handful of fresh cilantro, 4 cloves of garlic, 1/2 can of black olives, 1 lime and saute them together in a wok. Seasoned with cumin, salt, pepper, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Meanwhile, saute the asparagus in olive oil, the juice of 1 lime, salt and pepper. Cook until heated throughout. Place a bed of rice in a bowl, top with the Summer Veggie mixture and surround with Asparagus. Mama mia!
To your health!!
I recently celebrated my birthday with the love of my life, Gerald, who treated me like a princess. When we ended the day I had a hankering for something chocolate and sweet. What a perfect day to make a chocolate cake! I started out with a chocolate cacao cake but felt like it was missing something. With the stars aligned in my favor this day....I recalled a delicious dirty chai I had the other day and thought...that is it! The missing ingredient....chai. We ❤️ Chai Lattes and my sister just so happened to send us a homemade mix that was to diiiieee forrr...okay well at least wrestle for! I told her she could patent it. It took the cake to a whole new level. I didn't stop there either, I decided to make a chai frosted glazed that was sensational! This cake is 100% vegan, gluten-free, moist, and sure to please! I'll be making this again and again. Join me in a delicious recipe and enjoy a slice or slab of it.
Also right in time for my birthday was a generous gift from Hawaii! The Oils of Aloha was by far my favorite! Rich, smooth and sensational. I actually used it in this recipe. It may be why it was so incredibly moist. I'm having the hardest time not making another batch, yum! The Da Kine spice is also quite clever and has added a tasty new spice to our meals! Who made this possbile? The wonderful Aloha spirit of Mulvadi, aloha and Mahalo!!!!
Thank you ALL for your continued support!!! May you shine brightly with unconditional love!

I was having WAY too much fun making these delicious veggie burgers for my husband and I. Fresh veggies on top make it a sensation! It's a rare occasion that I opt for buns and I'm not sure why because MAN it makes one heck of a tasty difference. This patty is quick, simple and a true craving buster. I have you covered for Meatless Monday or any day you want a burger! Prep the potatoes, place them in the oven, prep the patty, while it's cooking prep the veggies and buns. Mix the fries, place the buns in the oven and toast until lightly brown or the vegan cheese is melted. Place the veggie patty on the bun, top with your favorite fresh vegetables and sauce and say thanks to the food gods for the delicious meal that is about to take place! Dig in!!!!
