Can going vegan prevent cancer? Surprisingly, the answer seems to be yes.
Welcome to this thirteenth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week. Ramson cream, feijoa loaf and down-home tacos – Recipes of the Day from April 15-21, 2016 This week’s fare includes two new-to-me ingredients from international waters. The first recipe, from a German cook in Denmark, uses ramsons (wild garlic). The fourth recipe, from the southern hemisphere, calls for feijoa, a popular fruit there. I hope to find the wild garlic at my local green grocer, but I doubt I’ll find feijoas, so I’ll try figs in that quick bread. As for the salad, it’s a springtime favorite in our house. I’m especially looking forward to trying the vegan lentil-walnut-meat filling on taco night, and that berry cashew smoothie bowl? That’s a new one on me, too. Which recipe do you want to try first?

Welcome to this tenth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week. From an unusual hummus to peanut butter fudge – Recipes of the Day from March 25-31, 2016 Are you a fan of edamame? My sweetheart loves it, so when I stirred up a batch of edamame and hemp heart hummus? Score! Another hit on the home front: My own asparagus quiche–first of the season. We also enjoyed kale and farro together this week, but didn’t get a chance to try Rachel’s luscious honey Dijon dressing. Next time! Late this week, I comforted a sore throat and clogged sinuses with Shannon’s glowing turmeric lemonade, and I’m not waiting till I get another cold to enjoy it again. Yum! We’ve yet to sample the peanut butter fudge, but oh my, weekend treat coming up.
