Stuffed mushrooms with soft nut cheese and mustard sauce

I don't know if it's the lack of complete darkness in Sweden at this time of year, or the festivities of the long weekend we just had, but I haven't been sleeping much lately - so forgive me in advance if this post isn't what you thought it would be!

Veggs Benedict Florentine with vegan hollandaise sauce

I know a lot of people consider fresh pasta to be superior, but in many dishes that doesn't really need to the case, and well, dry pasta is a whole lot cheaper! As a kid, I always loved ravioli. Ah, man it ... Continue Reading
