I have enjoyed baking my own breads and treats for my family on the weekend as a healthier and tastier option to store-bought options.

Vegetarian Jamaican Patties

I adapted this recipe to be vegetarian. I wanted a tasty lunch dish I could carry in my lunch box with an ice pack and that would keep in the fridge for the week. I like to prepare my lunches on Sundays for the week. These keep longer than meat in the fridge for the work week. I like the taste and texture of Yves veggie cuisine "meat."
