I am on full alert. My madre is coming into town in two days and I want (must/need) to make sure everything is perfect for her. She's been reading my blog and looking at all the pictures of my food and new found love for cooking ... so I hope I live up to her culinary expectations! My mom has done so much for me over the years ... I hope the least I can do is make her a decent meal or two. XOXO mama ~ wo ai ni!

Sicilian Collard Greens (The Kind Diet). I made the Superhero version with shoyu & pumpkin seeds & served it over brown rice.

Baked Plaintains ... topped with cinnamon & a bit of sea salt. So good!

Fried Udon Noodles (The Kind Diet). I added broccoli & mushrooms to the recipe.

Clean, Mean Burritos (The Kind Diet).

Banana Oat Pancakes topped with Red Raspberries. OMG.

Speaking of mommas ... Mother's Day brunch was vegan and delicious! I made spring rolls, my mother-in-law made fruit salad and my sister-in-law brought vegan red velvet cake! It was lovely and not a single animal was harmed for our celebration. Yay!
