Welcome!

Welcome to Romeo's Food Lady! This blog contains recipes for delicious vegetarian food. Most of these are not MY recipes, just a compilation of great veggie food I've found from all over the place, usually tweaked just a little. It's intended to be a reference you can consult again and again rather than a daily inspiration. After more than 25 years of being a vegetarian, I know what tastes good.
Romeo's Food Lady is named after my friend and cat, Romeo. Romeo is not a vegetarian, but his Food Lady is. Enjoy!

Peepaw's Peach Cobbler

A most excellent dessert!  I don't know where my grandfather - who we always called "Peepaw" (don't ask me the origin of that...I don't really know) - got this recipe, but thank goodness he did!  Easy, delicious, perfect.
 

 
Ingredients:
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder (try to find aluminum-free baking powder)
3/4 c. sugar (unless you're using FRESH peaches, then use 1 c. sugar)
3/4 c. almond milk (OK, I admit that Peepaw used cow's milk, but making it dairy-free with almond milk is even more awesome.)
1 stick vegan margarine (ditto above)
1 large can sliced peaches in heavy syrup (or try it with an approximately equal amount of peeled, sliced fresh peaches)
 
Method:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Melt vegan margarine in a small casserole dish (I used a glass 8"x8" dish.) by putting the dish in the preheating oven.
 
In a medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.  Stir in the almond milk.
 
Pour the flour and almond milk mixture into the dish over the melted butter.  Pour the peaches AND their syrup (if using canned peaches) over the flour mixture.  Bake for about 45 minutes, and serve warm.  Serves 4-6.
