My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it.

April 17, 2018 Vegan Nachos and Cheese Sauce


I saw this amazing Vegan Hollandaise recipe from www.hookedonplants.ca I had to get cashews to actually try it. I made a few changes using the ingredients I had. The result is so good it inspired me to write a blog post.

The recipe calls to soak cashews overnight I soaked them for 10 minutes. I also replaced the lemon juice with pressured cooked ginger lemon my friend made for me. I used curry spice, herbamare sea salt, and pepper for seasoning.


I put all the following ingredients in the magic bullet 

half a cup of cashews
1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
seasoning

After blending it was too runny so I added another 10 cashews and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast



The texture is great except I should have soaked the additional cashews

To make tortilla chips



heat a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil in a pan (I used olive this time coconut in the past)

fold corn tortilla (365 by whole foods is my preferred tortilla) into triangles and fry for a minute


I can't get over how healthy this sauce is it tastes very indulgent. I will likely use it instead of mayo in the future.

Enjoy
