Strawberries and Teenagers . . .

Sweet  . . .

Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

We recently celebrated my son's 15th birthday. I intended to make him Strawberry Shortcake but wasn't able to find a recipe that sounded fabulous. I made him Strawberry Cupcakes with Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting instead.

Tony DeJesus, Genesis 129 Project creator has been a vegan for a year and this Project is his mission.

"The Genesis 1:29 Project is a mission that we took upon to live up to the standard of Genesis 1:29 and to see if it truly is a benefit for us.  This will be a movement to take what God had started in the Garden of Eden and bring it to our present day.  In a way the purpose for this blog is to be a delicious journey into a vegan diet and do our best to bring you information in an exciting and spiritual way that will take the fear out of being a vegan.  By the way, has anyone read Genesis 1:29 yet?"

Genesis 1:29 reads: 


And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

Regardless of your religious beliefs, Tony's recipes and beautiful videos are a real treat. 

If I have time and fresh strawberries this weekend, I'll make Tony's Strawberry Shortcake recipe for my son.


California strawberries are currently sprayed with Methyl Iodide, a known carcinogen and neurotoxin. Please go to the 'Letters' section on this blog for a letter written to Lisa Jackson, EPA Administrator requesting she reinstate a ban on methyl iodide in California. Feel free to copy the letter and customize it. Written letters have the most impact.

Thank you!
