It AIN’T ANIMAL-FREE if it came from the flesh and blood of animals or animal cells

RE: ANIMAL-FREE LAB CELL MEAT by Sharon Davies-Tight, the Animal-Free Chef If it comes from an animal it’s not animal-free. They (the people using the word to call their animal product animal-free) need to ditch that name before someone takes them to court over it. You still need to keep stables of animals to garnerContinue reading “It AIN’T ANIMAL-FREE if it came from the flesh and blood of animals or animal cells”

DOMINEX Eggplant Veggie Fries

Bake according to package instructions is the best way. Serve right away, since just like any other fry they cool down quickly. I used a veg mayo with Poupon Dijon Mustard and smoked paprika with a little garlic powder for a dipping sauce. The breading was okay, not too much, though a bit salty. IContinue reading “DOMINEX Eggplant Veggie Fries”

Why Almost Identical – Sour Cream, Cream Cheese?

TOFUTTI FUDGING THEIR LABELS? Companies will most assuredly cite pandemic reasons for putting cream cheese into their sour cream containers or vice versa. Or, maybe they altered the recipe itself, bringing the two closer together in texture, viscosity, mouth feel and flavor. Or they didn’t have enough sour cream, so decided to sell cream cheeseContinue reading “Why Almost Identical – Sour Cream, Cream Cheese?”

Sabra Spinach & Artichoke Hummus

Steve brought home a dip over the holidays. Saw it, liked the way it looked, likes spinach and artichokes, thought it a good buy. Well, more like a good-bye.

Gia Russa Sicilian Lemon Marmalade

GIA RUSSA SICILIAN LEMON MARMALADE Steve brought home this Sicilian Lemon Marmalade, knowing I like orange marmalade and most things Italian.

Wouldn’t hesitateContinue reading “Gia Russa Sicilian Lemon Marmalade”

MY PIZZA TO CRACKER EXPERIENCE

We Want Fresh Bread Or No Bread WE CAN DO NO BREAD. We’re just not going to do stale bread. Bakers sat on their animal-based laurels too long.

They failed to do the research and development, wanting to put allContinue reading “MY PIZZA TO CRACKER EXPERIENCE”

Buffalo Soy Delight Chicken Nuggets

GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE SAUCE

One might think that a company like GHIRARDELLI would manufacture a high end chocolate sauce. PREMIUM. PROFESSIONAL. That’s what it says on the label.
