  1. I love all of your recipes! I copy them down and pass them on to my vegetarian neighbor but have tried your veggie enchiladas and they where delicious!

    Not like you take requests or anything or have time on your hands but I would love to see more of your recipes(I've already gotten all the ones you've posted).

    You sound as if you are feeling better today. I see my prayers for you helped. Have a great day!

  2. Oh my gosh...you are like a prayer answered for me this morning! Okay, that's a bit dramatic I guess, but I did sit down at the computer as I'm trying to plan for week's menu for shopping and these sound great! I just added them to the menu and can't wait to try them. THANKS for sharing!

    Veggie enchiladas...ooh, I missed those! Maybe I'll do a search. ;)

  3. It all sounded good until the raisins ha! So I might just have to try it without those :)

  4. That sounds delicious! I'll have to try that one.

  5. Anytiem I bring a meal to someone(after a baby, or hospiatl stay etc) I ALWAYS bring your pasta dish you posted a while back. It is one of my favorites. I need to get a few things but will try this sometime soon.

  6. Hmm. It actually sounds good! thats coming from a die hard meat eater so Im thinking I need to try making these one day ,Thanks :)

  7. I have been making these lentil tacos for so so long! This used to be one of my weekly staple dinners.

    I haven't actually thought about making them for quite some time, so THANKS for the memory refresher! I think my little boy would LOVE. THEM.

  8. I am goint to try these.minus the raisins though! Sound yummy

  9. Not weird at all! Totally something we would make.

    I love the way you think.

  10. That does sound really good -- and I am not even vegetarian. Yum!

  11. That looks very good to me! I think you should have an all recipe blog! I am planning on trying to go off dairy after the first of the year because I believe it has contributed to severe excema. I am going to miss my beloved cheese and ice cream so! I will be in need of flavorful new recipes I can try to get my whole family to eat- where do you get all your recipes?

  12. yummmmmo! that sounds delish, but would make Alec's tongue itch...(still no beans or lentils for him, maybe someday...)

  13. This sounds so yummy! I make a great lentil rice casserole that we serve on taco shells...so I don't think lentils on tacos sounds weird. :-) It's healthy and tastes so good!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  14. sounds yummy except for the onion and chilli....maybe I'll have these once I regain the ability to eat!! darn twinnies


  15. Did you use red or green lentils?

  16. Mmmm. Brittany! It sounds so good. Another recipe to try.

    In fact, I'd forgotten to tell you that we made your Veggie Bean Potpie...for the second time since you posted it. And your Chickpea Curry is a favorite in our house.

    Keep those healthy meals coming.


  17. YUMMy indeed! If only I can remember it...when I'm at the market.

  18. Sounds delicious to me!

  19. OH Yum! I am definitely going to try that out this coming week. THanks!

  20. Thanks for the recipe! It sounds wonderful and it is on our menu for tonight. My kids (especially my 16mo) LOVE lentils, so I think it'll be a hit.:)


Thank you for blessing me with your words!
