Vegan Chicken Salad Sandwich

I was asked by one of my subscribers if I had a recipe for vegan chicken salad and at the time I didn’t; but it got me thinking about how I use to LOVE this chicken salad my dad would buy from the deli counter when I was a kid. Thinking it would be fun to recreate that recipe but veganize it, I decided to give it a shot! I have seen a couple “chicken” alternatives in the store but I decided to go with Tofurkeys slow roasted chik’n because I wanted the taste of slow cooked chicken…

Detroit Style Pizza – Fully Loaded Veggie

I absolutely LOVE pizza, my favorite form is Detroit style pizza! Although I personally have never been to Detroit a few pizza places in my area make it and OMG, so freaking good. What I love most about Detroit style pizza compared to regular round pizza is the fact the dough is almost Focaccia like; my absolute favorite part of the pizza is the crispy corners. *DROOLS*I have tried to make this pizza twice and I realized my failure was all in the pan, you have to make sure you do this in a deep rectangle dish.
