Vegan Pancakes
To make healthier vegan pancakes, replace the oil by adding 3 TBS ground flax seed, use whole wheat pastry flour in place of refined white flour, use 1 TBS Grade B Maple Syrup in place of refined white sugar. Please note that when using ground flaxseed the pancakes will tend to brown quicker.

Italian Peas
Oh how wonderful this recipe tastes! Honestly, I have never had better tasting peas. I followed the recipe exactly. I thought at first a whole "medium" onion would be too much but it was just right. The peas are not at all mushy. Frozen peas are the way to go unless you shell fresh ones. Medium low heat using a gas oven is how I made them and 15 minutes was all it took once the peas were added.

Penne Pasta with Veggies
I followed this recipe and it turned out oily at the bottom and dry/crunchy on the top. I tried it because of all the reviews but my first thought was that it needed some sauce. I will not make this recipe again, even with sauce.
