curse love of eating has definitely been passed down in my family. It has gone from my grandma to my mom, then on to me and my sisters, I then passed it on to my daughters and finally it has been passed down to my grand-kids! We all love family get-togethers because we know there will be lots of yummy food to be shared. I have many friends who love to be invited to our get-togethers because they know there will be great food served!! My becoming vegan was a concern to some of my family as well as my friends. They were afraid they would no longer get the great tasting foods I have made through the years. (I honestly was a bit concerned myself when I first decided to become Vegan) Well I love proving them as well as myself wrong!! Between my oldest daughter who is Vegan and myself, we are having a blast proving them wrong. My daughter definitely has a wonderful flair of coming up with great Vegan dishes (tho she can be stingy with sharing her exact recipes!!! LOL ) It’s been fun finding ways to modify family favorites as well as find new great tasting recipes to add to our favorites. Cooking for my family and friends is definitely a great joy to me!
I am a very blessed grandma with 11 grand-kids. I love teaching my grand-kids that eating Vegan is not only healthy for them, but also quite easy and yummy too! At one point a few of them were vegetarian but all have gone back to eating meat now. I am hoping as they become older they will make the choice to give up meat again and maybe even become Vegan. I love that they enjoy all the new recipes I share with them. Recently I had 8 of them (plus my 12-year-old!) over for a Movie Night Extravaganza and needed to make a yummy but easy breakfast to please them all. I had lots of ripe bananas left from my Bountiful Baskets and decided I would make Banana Nut Muffins. I found a few recipes that had some of what I was looking for and I modified them into one I was happy with. I was more than happy with the results as well as the kids were too!! I will be using this recipe to make mini loaves for the holidays also. Serving these Banana Nut Muffins along with Gala Melon slices was a great breakfast that the kids loved! 🙂
