  • vegan animal fries? Yes, please!

  • Thank you Candice – you are amazing.

    I tried your vegan grazing platter over the holidays and everyone loved it – and I just put it out there.

    Our two little grandsons ( age 4 and 1) could not believe their good fortune at having an entire table filled with food – worked for them !!! and such a relaxing way to share. I also put out a pot of your Pumpkin sage soup – so so delicious.

    One of my fav recipes of all time is your rice paper bacon. I loved “fakin bakin” and tomato sandwiches and I could not believe how good it tasted – I crisp up my “bakin” and bag it and it stays crispy. If others have not tried it – you should.
    I marinade and bake and then cut – too finicky to cut and marinade – it works like a charm. I prep a batch every so often.

    Have an amazing 2019 Candice – and thanks for helping keep us healthy and happy. You are the best.
