Well, it is about time I do this book. I have been procrasternating for ever and finally I muistered up enough courage to put pen to paper and once I got started it was hard to stop. There were so many ideas floating around in my head but, because this is my first book I decided to keep it simpl where beginners can use this as a guide to making fresh healthy vegan meal.. I think it worked.
The book is called Livin' It Up Vegan and the recipes  are  quick  and easy, fun and delicious. Please go to my authors page and like. https://www.facebook.com/ReesaMckenziebook

Super Bowl Spicy Chicken

Making Herb steamed snapper fish
Today was one of those days I that I made fish, steamed snapper fish at that. They were fresh and I think Christina got them from Florida but, where ever they came they were fresh. Fish are always easy to cook but, you must be careful because like me you could easily over cook them.
