  1. I’m not vegan but our granddaughters are and their brother is vegetarian. I’m the only one of their relatives that makes food specifically for them. I was looking for an entree for them and have decided on the Stuffed Butternut Roast. I make almost all the sides vegan friendly. For their dessert I plan on making the Upside Down Pecan Praline Pumpkin Cake. I think these will be a hit.

    • Wow, Barbara! You’re an amazing grandmother and your family is so lucky :)
      Thank you very much for sharing, all of this sounds wonderful and will be tasty to everyone on the table I’m sure!
      Best wishes to you and your grandkids,

  2. YES! ALL of them! My husband and I have changed our eating habits to plant based. No sugar (because my husband has cancer. He is not doing chemo or radiation). He had 2 kinds of cancer which are in remission because of his diet of plant based eating however he has still eaten chicken. We are trying to go vegan all the way. No meat!
    I look forward to getting these recipes
