Hey my Vegan gang. I have a truly wonderful treat for you. I love this guy and the way he cooks and presents it.

If you are thinking about a meat free diet starting with the New Year coming up, or going all the way and going totally vegan, take a look at this. Or perhaps you are a vegan of many years and looking for some fresh inspiration. This video is the place.

Hope you enjoyed it and are getting inspired to try some of these.

Remember. Instead of thinking about what you are giving up, think about what you are gaining — a whole new world of taste sensations, plus blessing everyone around you, the animals, the planet . . . and yourself of course. Everyone. Everything. Yes ma’am!

A very Merry Christmas. See you in the New Year. If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave them in comments.

Love y’all,

P.S. Oh my stars. Almost forgot about the champagne for New Year’s.

Easy Vegan Eggnog

Collection of Santa mugs with egg nog.

Hey, it’s Patsy. I am going to do a quick in and out of here to share with you my favorite eggnog recipe from Minimalist Baker.

We kick the Christmas season off drinking eggnog while decorating the Christmas tree. From then on I always keep fresh batches in the fridge for guests dropping in along the way serving it in my vast collection of Santa mugs. So festive. So cheerful and fun.

My favorite Santa mug. Got it from Etsy.
My favorite Santa mug. Got it from Etsy. They just sold out or I would link it. Darn! Too cute not to share.

If I am going to make a boozy version, I add the bourbon last, then leave it sit in the fridge and least overnight once. The eggnog absorbs the bourbon so it flavors it and doesn’t overwhelm it. It makes it smooth and so, so good.

So here we go. The ingredients you will need to make the Minimalist Baker eggnog recipe are:


US Customary – Metric
3 cups dairy-free milk (preferably homemade // we love a cashew-almond blend — see instructions)
1 14-oz can full-fat coconut milk (use light for lighter eggnog)
4-6 Tbsp maple syrup, plus more to taste (substitute up to half with coconut sugar)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more to taste
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, plus more to taste
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp ground cardamom (optional)

FOR SERVING optional
1 ounce bourbon (per 8-ounce serving)
Coconut whipped cream
Cinnamon or nutmeg

We add a sprinkle of nutmeg to ours and go without the whipped cream. Every household is different. No matter what you choose, it’s delicious and oh, so Christmas-sy!

Hugs galore and Merry, Merry. . . !

Healthy Potato Carrot Tomato Soup by The Vegan 8

Vegan 8 Potato Carrot Tomato Soup featured image.

Greetings everyone from Patsy.

This deliciously filling soup by The Vegan 8 is just what the doctor ordered for the cold weather coming up or already arrived. And it gives us a tasty break between the cooking marathon that is Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The lady behind The Vegan 8 calls her cooking site that because it’s vegan and her recipes have only 8 ingredients.

Her Instagram post on this highly recommended soup recipe is coming up, but first, here’s a look at what goes in it.

• red onion
• garlic
• gold potatoes
• carrots
• regular paprika
• ground coriander
• fire-roasted tomatoes
• chili pepper sauce

Rotel and Hunt’s both sell canned fire-roasted tomatoes. Target, Walmart and Kroger’s stock them among others.

Get the recipe at The Vegan 8 website here »

Here’s her Instagram post.

Some people think it’s too hot — burns your mouth, makes your sinuses run — others find it is just the right amount of heat. My husband thinks it’s just right and my daughter and I think it’s a bit hot. So I cook it for us girls without all that heat, and let my husband add the chili pepper sauce to his taste. He helps put out the fire with an ice cold beer.

Here’s the recipe link again.

By the way, if you wonder what beers are vegan, check out this list.

We love chilis and stews and soups at our house. Or anything “one pot”. How about you?

I will be back, don’t know when yet, with some Christmas ideas plus links to previous Christmas posts here on Tuesday’s Horse that have gotten the best reviews. Let me know what you need some inspiration on.

I am boogey-ing on out of here for now.

Love, Patsy.
