All my links and buttons are back! So now I can take a peek. They were not showing for a long time. I am not sure what the problem was, but I won’t 'look a gift horse in the mouth’!

I have many, many vegetarian recipes that are not too foreign for those who want to forgo meat temporarily, or just to vary the diet occasionally. I will post a few as soon as I can. I would have done it sooner, but didn’t get my comp back in time to help with Lent.
Next year!

Catie, I really appreciate all the tips and I'm sure anyone else who sees this cookbook will too. I tend to forget when I'm preparing Lenten meals that there are hordes of vegetarians out there who do this all the time! Thanks for the reminder. I hope you get your settings straightened out--cookbooks are normally very easy to navigate.

You know, I cannot do so. I may have to check my settings, as they may have changed it at the computer shop. Thanks for the reminder Julia.
Now I just have to remember what cookbook had my recipe!

Catie, You can view all the recipes in each cookbook by clicking on the cookbook and using the next page feature. It also has the Large View option.

I wish they listed the recipes contained within the book. What happened to that feature? It was a deciding factor in buying the book at times.
A member put one of my recipes in their cookbook recently. I received a notice. But I do not know which one, as I couldn’t see the list of recipes included in the book. Just curious.

Ellen, if it helps....
For bacon, one can use any of the multiple brands of vegan, or vegetarian bacon available these days, just be sure to add any needed fat, or oil when browning in a skillet, as faux bacon will not be fatty. Also, you can add liquid smoke, (it has no animal ingredients in it, just smoked based flavor) available at any grocery store, to add a true ‘smoky bacon flavor’ to the dish. There are fake ‘bacon bits’ at the grocery store as well. I have used various methods to add that bacon quality to vegetarian dishes over the years. They can work very well when you are missing the real thing. I know,,,,,,nothing can REALLY be a replacement for the real thing, but...
Also, there are vegetarian meat tasting broths, bullion cubes and powders that can be added to recipes if one misses the meat flavor in the casserole or dish on is making.

If you are making a pizza, or casserole with cheese, smoked cheese, like smoked cheddar, or smoked gouda, etc., can serve as a replacement for bacon, and cheddar, i.e.
I have a good friend who loves her pineapple and ‘meat’ pizza, by using smoked cheese to replace the meats.
A tiny fyi if it helps,
Have a blessed Lenten season,
Catie
