{Recipe} Vegetarian Swedish Meatball Sauce

I've been trying to perfect a Vegetarian Swedish Meatball Sauce and I think I'm getting close.
 Ingredients:
2 TBS butter  (or Earth Balance if vegan)
2 TBS all purpose flour
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup milk (can also use cream, 1/2 & 1/2 or dairy free milk)
Seasonings: Nutmeg, soy saucer/liquid aminos), rosemary, salt & pepper
Worcestershire Sauce
 Melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Cook on low to medium for a few minutes. Add milk and broth. Whisk in pan.
 I forgot to take a photo of the Worcestershire Sauce earlier. Here it is! Make sure it's vegetarian (no anchovies, please).
Whisk in seasonings to taste.
 I also made some spinach. I love how it looks all piled up in the pan before it cooks.
 Keep whisking sauce until it thickens. This batch didn't get super thick because I used skim milk but it was still very tasty.
Pour it on your favorite veggie meatballs (I like Trader Joe's brand) and sprinkle on some parsley.  
(Red potatoes go nicely with the potatoes and sauce.)
Enjoy!
P.S. I hear Ikea is getting vegetarian meatballs soon, I can't wait!

Birthday In a Box - Take 2

I made my first Birthday in a Box two years ago for College Girl.
Now, my niece is away at a college so I put together one for her.
I checked out everything I had for her and tested it out in the box to make it would all fit.
The balloons were filled with cash and air and I wrapped up the gifts that wouldn't fit in balloons.
I popped a gift card into her birthday card and told her to make sure she popped all of the balloons. :)
It's such a fun way to send a gift!

{Recipe} P. F. Chang Style Cucumbers

I was looking for a way to spice up my cucumbers and remembered that I really loved P.F. Chang's Shanghai Cucumbers.  I found this recipe that replicates the taste of their zesty appetizer/side dish.
 They are really light and refreshing, gluten free and so easy to make. If you're in a cucumber rut, you might want to give these a try!
 Ingredients:
12 oz peeled and seeded cucumbers, cut into 1 inch chunks (I didn't seed mine)
3 TBS gluten free soy sauce ( I used Braggs Liquid Aminos)
1 tsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (I didn't toast mine)
Mix soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil together. Pour over cucumbers and mix well. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top.
Enjoy!

Let's keep in touch!
