Sauteed Italian green beans and cauliflower with onion, sweet red roasted peppers and Kalamata olive tossed with a sweet sour smoky barbecue sauce!

Beets and prunes make it happen. Beet and prune meat – just like that! A delicacy worth the praise. For the commonist and elitist alike!

Makes 1 cup of heaven on earthContinue reading “Russian-Lithuanian Beet And Prune Pate GOAT”
AFC version of a mild, creamy cheezy textural liverwurst. Why? Because I’m Baltic, Slavic, Germanic and Cossack and can’t make up my mind, so I put all of it in my newest meaty cheese formula. You say you already did that? Nyet. You put the cheese in the meat loaf, you didn’t reconfigure the meat and the cheese to make it one union under the sky of creation. I did. Yes, it is worthy!

Missions regarding: All of Sharon’s writing, cooking and art sites – free style, editorial, prose, activism
AFC GLOBAL MISSIONS ABSOLUTE
I am on a mission to keep animals out of my food, medicine, clothing, non-food products, science, engineering, art, architecture, entertainment…
I do not have to debate the mission.
I already know where I stand.
Using thought, word and deed I transmit my mission to all beings.
Maybe the world doesn’t want an ANIMAL-FREE CUISINE.
Maybe the world doesn’t want a better life through the application of THE FIVE PRINCIPLES.
When the animals are no longer considered slaughter-worthy and/or the world moves on to new exploits, the world will turn exclusively to plants.
When it does, I will have already spent decades developing a world class MAINSTREAM ANIMAL-FREE CUISINE that has already been shared around the world!
And when that happens, the world will want to MATCH it WITH a plan for a better more peaceful and cooperative future for all. And I will already have spent decades preparing for that tide through my own application of THE FIVE PRINCIPLES TO A BETTER LIFE in my own life, which has also been shared around the world – year after year after year. As a result, I know how it works and understand the pitfalls.
Although my focus has been on animal rights, throughout my career I knew the shortest way to my goals was to keep the human animal relevant at all stages of engagement, so I intertwined all animals including the human animal into one lifelong project.
That was quite a job and the highest mountain any human ever climbed alone and succeeded!
So why do it for free?
To keep my work corruption-free. When someone pays a salary, they dictate the terms, meaning what and how and when I write, and the type of recipes I develop, and the suggestions I give in all areas of surviving and thriving for all life.
In addition, I chose not to put my name on other people’s words who work behind the scenes as contributors.
I take credit and responsibility for all of my art – from writing to cooking to painting to activism. That’s who I am and how I prefer to fly.
Although through the lengthy and arduous developmental stages of development I worked alone, I don’t anticipate that being the case for much longer.
THE AFC BLUEPRINT is absolutely inclusive. The worst, best and all the rest of humanity are welcome to the table.
Sharon Lee Davies-Tight, at your service

Mushroom Corn INSTANT Potatoes
I like them fresh, I like them canned, I like them instant. POTATOES. Especially mashed with gravy. These instants did not disappoint. No milk, no butter. CANNED PORTABELLA AND CORN SEAL THE DEAL. Ahh.
Makes 8 cupsContinue reading “Mushroom Corn Instant Potatoes”
Green Beans And Mushroom Gravy
Except for the green beans, everything else major is canned, bottled or boxed. No slicing and dicing. A great comfort gravy with stellar canned mushrooms and peas from the DOLLAR STORE! I’ll be going back for more! More gravy too. This won’t last long in this house!
Total dish makes 7 cupsContinue reading “Green Beans And Mushroom Gravy”
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RECIPE.
The Recipe Is Everything That Matters.
THE RECIPE IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS.
You say you don’t want a recipe. You laugh and say we don’t need your crazy dumass recipes. You’re dismissive when you say it’s not helping us.
We need help you say, and all you do is cook.
We have plenty of recipes, you say.
You keep asking God to help you, so naturally that’s where I went. Why go elsewhere? Do you even know what you want? Do you know where and how to get it?
I travelled along your lines to help you figure out what you’re asking God. You know don’t you, that the universe is God and God is the universe – in many forms and continues to grow in all directions including inward.
You say: Forget the damn recipes; we need help not a recipe.
That’s what the universe recognizes and the way in which the universe communicates – through recipes.
Formulas, measurements, combinations, methods, ingredients or contents, interaction.
It’s all about the recipe.
Do you have one to show the God you pray to or the universe from which you expect miracles?
What’s the formula for your success? Individually. Forget the group. One person.
White people are neither the problem nor the solution. You give them too much credit and too much blame and where does it get you?
The universe needs all lives to survive and thrive. And you’re blocking the recipe by making one ingredient more important and leaving out critical ingredients to the success of the recipe.
The universe said no to your mattering formula. All matter matters – all the time – and you told the universe you wanted to change that recipe.
But you didn’t come up with a better one. You made the existing one worse.
Animals in the pot is not the recipe for their survival nor yours.
Go back and make the recipe better.
Recipes are the only thing the universe cares about. That’s what the universe is – a recipe.
That’s what you are – a recipe.
That’s what God is – the recipe.

Makes 3-3/4 cupsContinue reading “AFC ORIGINAL CHEESEBURGER”
IMPOSSIBLE BURGER WITH SAUERKRAUT
Steve and I are thin burger people. When eating out or grilling we always wanted thin patties. The Impossible Burger is always served thick, probably to justify the high price – except at Burger King where it neither resembles nor tastes like an Impossible Burger.
The first burgers we pan-fried at home were fairly thick – still though, they didn’t taste like the ones I get served in a restaurant.
Frankly I don’t know how chefs at restaurants cook them, but the cooked at home ones are better in flavor and texture in my view, and Steve’s view too.
I divided the burger meat in half and made two thick burgers from one half the meat, then made three thin burgers from the other half. Although both were great; we both preferred the thin version.
And I put some char on them. That’s what’s lacking when served out, the char. What are you afraid of? Cancer from char? Any evidence to support that claim, except in lab rats? Show me one person who died from well-done in any meat category – plant or animal.
Makes 4-6Continue reading “IMPOSSIBLE BURGER WITH SAUERKRAUT”
AFC ICED PEANUT APRICOT CREAM
WORLD’S BEST TASTING ICED CREAM! No added sugar in case you wonder where the sugar is in the recipe. It’s already in the other ingredients, no need to add more. If you’re allergic to peanuts, try another iced cream; I’ve got plenty of them! Take a peek: AFC FROZEN DESSERTS, AFC TEST KITCHEN ICED DESSERTS,
Makes 3-3/4 cups cream before freezingContinue reading “AFC Iced Peanut Apricot Cream”
OPEN-FACE ARTICHOKE CHILI KAISER ROLLS
SWEET CHILI. That’s what Steve always says he wants. No heat except lots of black pepper. He’s that kind of guy – black pepper with everything and lots of it!
This chili smokes without the heat!! Yeah, we upscaled this simple chili, adding a French Italian Scottish twinge just to excite the Spanish! The German part is the ride! You know, the boat! Substitute the English Muffin if you like! Both work great!
Makes 6 cupsContinue reading “AFC Open-Face Artichoke Chili Kaiser Rolls”
SMOKED ALMOND CHERRY SPREAD
Fresh cherries, dairy free cream cheese, smoked almonds, Dijon mustard, Kalamata olives with saffron, or not, make this simply prepared spread look and taste more sophisticated and complex than it is! Why not impress somebody tonight? I am.
Steve says, “Remarkable; it’s like an exquisite ham salad with a delicious sweetness. I’d say it’s a home run”.
Makes 4-1/2 cups
AFC NEAPOLITAN ICE-CREAM
My father’s favorite ice-cream, Neapolitan three flavors in one carton. Well, I made an animal-free Neapolitan all rolled into one. I didn’t keep the flavors separate. But it tastes the same to me. The memory of Neapolitan gets activated when I eat it. Maybe some day I’ll figure out how to do layers. I’m not even sure if they still do them. This one’s for you Dad!! With hugs and kisses on top!!
Makes 3 cupsContinue reading “AFC Neapolitan Ice-Cream”
GINGER GOLD CHEW CUPCAKES
Golden raisins, crystallized ginger, sliced almonds, smoky soy protein, bananas mixed with oats, flour, flax, sugar brown & white, coriander, turmeric, powder gums and apple cider vinegar. Topped with brown sugar and baked to rise to new heights in culinary diet fare!
Except for the sliced almonds, no fat. Sugar content is low in comparison to most baked goods, offsetting the glycemic index with the apple cider vinegar added protein and complex carbs.
One muffin is a meal!
Right out of the oven you think you’re eating a caramelized butter cake with pockets of soft banana contrasted with crispy coriander sugared dough. Later the melt is muted, exposing all the textures and flavors!
No need for margarine or spreads!
Makes 12 cupcakes and 1, 8 inch round cakeContinue reading “AFC Ginger Gold Chew Cupcakes”
Blueberry Pumpkin Chew Cupcakes
Okay, now that you’ve been introduced to the chew in previous recipes, we’re going to take this deeper into chew territory where the chew gets tougher.
This is a dense pudding chew. Different yes. Delightful yes. Filling, satisfying. Whipped plant cream anyone? Company coming? Yes.
Right from the oven, still warm, equals a Native Indian pudding chew. Room temperature, several hours later, and the tough emerges triumphant.
Serve with dipping sauces: Grade A maple syrup or Smokey Orange Marmalade Syrup. Top with plant whip cream, sprinkle with chopped cilantro and Walk On Water!
Or, eat that TOUGH all by itself. Cold. Hint of cigar, believe it or not!
Makes 12 plus 1 custard cupContinue reading “AFC Blueberry Pumpkin Chew Cupcakes”
AFC Blueberry Walnut Chew Cupcakes
These styled cupcakes are all about the chew. Yes, they’re heavier than what you’re accustomed to – mostly air – and mostly air tastes good. These are different. Not your run of the mill cupcake. These have distinction on their side and something else no other cupcake possesses: A Chew. Yes. It’s all about the Chew. It’s all in the Chew. The Chew is where it’s at.
A new Chew via a different texture. Not the same as old. Better. The Chew Cupcake is superior.
Soft, warm mouth-feel even when they’re chilled.
Cupcake Supremacy. Yes. No doubt The Chew Cupcake is superior to all cupcakes.
Makes 18 cupcakesContinue reading “AFC Blueberry Walnut Chew Cupcakes”
FRUIT AND NUT CHOCOLATE CHEW CUPCAKES
Before taste-testing I only had one question for Steve. Muffin or cupcake? What do you think? Upon tasting he said, “a muffcake”. Half muffin half cake. Later I changed it to chew cakes – that was the distinguishing feature.
Not a pudding cake, not an air-stuffed bakery bought cake. Homemade, dry enough, moist enough, dense enough, flavorful enough, whereby you don’t taste the flour, crispy enough. Buckwheat adds something; I just don’t know what – yet!
Steve added, “and P.S. it tastes great.” Steve already warned me to put his ChewCakes aside for today’s game as the Browns take on the undefeated Patriots at Foxboro!
On his way out to the grocery store I hollered to him, “you better get some Tofutti cream cheese to have with them”.
Makes 12 cupcakesContinue reading “AFC Fruit And Nut Chocolate Chew Cupcakes”
ORANGE PECAN CORN CHEW CUPCAKES
For some time now I wanted to add a corn bread chew cupcake to my collection. Seeings though I’m not fond of the strong maize flavor of corn meal I decided to use real corn – in a can – that doesn’t have that strong maize flavor.
And this is the result: an orange pecan corn chew cake with coriander, tarragon, smoke, allspice and extra virgin olive oil! Yes, Steve likes them – “Those cupcakes are good, really good; that’s a nice chew, very nice chew!”
Makes 15 chew cupcakesContinue reading “AFC Orange Pecan Corn Chew Cupcakes”

RED VELVET CRANBERRY OAT PIE
Old Fashioned Oats, a little Tapioca, beet root powder, cocoa, cranberries and coriander! Versatile meal pie – breakfast, lunch, after dinner, midnight snack!
Serves 8 or moreContinue reading “AFC Red Velvet Cranberry Oat Pie”
PLANT PEPPERONI SAUCE
For subs, pasta or muffin/bun pizzas. A simple, thick tomato sauce with Italian seasonings and Pepperoni Crumble! If serving with pasta it’s best to use penne or elbow, shell or bow tie macaroni. If you want more liquid add more tomato product or tomato juice. Due to the thickness it does not work well over spaghetti type pasta. This is a hearty sauce. It also works well as taco meat and sauce combined. You’ll like it! We love it!
Makes 6 cupsContinue reading “AFC Plant Pepperoni Sauce”
SUPER BOWL GOAT HOT DOGS
Smart Life Jumbo Hot Dogs cooked briefly in extra virgin olive oil with oregano, smoked paprika and ADOBO seasoning. Served in a SUPERIOR BUN with Daiya Blue Cheeze Dressing, sauteed onion and mustard! A different slant on a traditional favorite wins the game!
