Another wonderful celebration of VEGAN food at the monthly potluck in Boulder Creek.
I created VEGI burgers from onion red and white, broccoli, and potatoes bound together in a tempura batter and pan fried crispy and hot, then topped with lettuce, cabbage, tomato sauce with garlic and basil, oregano.
Hamburger buns and bagels, as well as corn tortillas crisp from the stove top pans provided assortment of buns and rolls.
, Mushrooms sauteed in sesame seed oil, added toppings,
Acorn squash with maple syrup and walnuts were the desert.
Hibiscus iced tea to drink.
Guests brought sliced watermelon and cantaloupe.
Life celebrates the living!

I will have a few images to share shortly.

Saving All Life On Earth

Recent letter to the Editors of several local newspapers:

I have response to the recent article on Global Warming. Co2 is not the major cause. Co2 is needed by plants to create Oxygen and we can replant our forests, now decimated by 1/2 , made into cow pastures, to help ease the imbalance.

Methane Gas is the most deadly and destructive of all the greenhouse gases, created by 8 billion humans and their livestock, most notably cows. It accounts for 28 percent currently and outweighs all the Co2 sources combined.

This is the inconvenient truth Al Gore does not mention because his family is living off cattle ranching, and your article writer, Gamble, missed this as well.

Methane is something each of us must do something about. We need no government to curtail what we choose to eat.

Unless we can return to Eden, remember the Fruits of the Trees, and all growing, plant based foods as our intended "Meat", all life is being destroyed for our ignorance and violence. There is every good reason to stop the practice of eating flesh.

To those who argue that the bible gives them the right to kill, and site practices from 1 A.D,overlooking Genesis,

What do you think God would say to the current extinctions of all life being driven by out of control population numbers of humans and animals raised to kill for their flesh?

Can you sacrifice your desire for flesh and return to the Garden of Eden, where no violence was committed, where we were instructed to eat the fruits of the trees?

We are in Biblical times of Armageddon and Revelations where 60% of everything living is currently dying.

We have become the beast.

Unless we enlighten and rethink our destruction and violence on earth, all life is currently collapsing.

Only we can stop the killing, the destruction, and pray we can do it in time to avert the current collapse.

To the scientists of the world, who weep for the current path of destruction, do not give up on your outreach. The entire cycle of life is crying out to us to enlighten.

I am hosting VEGAN potlucks every first Friday in Boulder Creek, CA. at Saint Michael's community hall as a means of drawing media attention to this most serious problem of our times.

You can reach me at, or to RSVP at least 1 week in advance.

We are trying to showcase the most exquisite foods on our planet, the only ones capable of healing us and our world.

I am photographing the most interesting foods brought, along with recipes at my broadcast website: "

All who come are asked to participate by bringing their favorite dishes and are being asked to speak about how they created them.

Post your recipes to the email addresses listed for RSVP. I'll be posting them at my website and Facebook, and other appropriate outlets.

All are being asked to bring their own tablesettings, and assist with clean up, sweeping the halls, getting the dishes washed and the kitchen clean.

If you are a talented VEGAN chef you are most especially welcome, as this is intended as educational outreach and shifting thinking.

We sacrifice nothing by embracing a non-violent, plant based diet, and have all life to gain.

VEGAN! " Great Gourmets" Broadcast Series of Tamara Lynn Scott

Sample Plate of VEGAN Food: Portabella Pizza, 6 mushroom/roasted potato/onion/brussel sprout/asparagus, sweet peppers, celery, watermelon.

I am now hosting the only VEGAN potluck in the Santa Cruz Mountains every First Friday of the month at 11:30 a.m. in the Saint Michael's Community Hall on Pine Street.

All are invited to participate, which means bringing your favorite VEGAN foods and drinks to share. I'll be photographing these foods. Post your recipes and any images you have of them at this website, or send to my email address at Let me know if you are planning to come and what you'll be bringing, and if you want to be added to the email list.

All must RSVP and all must participate in clean up of the hall.

Bring your own picnic basket with non-disposable table settings. We do this to eliminate clean up, breakage, and paper plates or plastic forks.

I'll be posting the best foods here at this website, along with other posting locations, and may invite some to be featured in the Broadcast Series: " Great Gourmets".

I am doing this because we are now loosing 200 species a DAY due to 8 billion humans on animal based diets killing everything that lives. This is an unprecedented loss of life caused by humans and only we can help turn this around by getting back to the garden, a " RETURN to EDEN."

I am now focused on presenting the best choices of diet, namely VEGAN, the only sustainable, environmentally friendly diet, as recommended to us in Genesis. Perhaps God knew something about what is happening now.

Here are a few of the foods being brought to the table.

Bring your own tuperware to take the left overs back home with you, and back out into the community for those who need it.

Everyone who comes is taking home more than they are bringing.

For Valentines' Day

You may not believe in eternity,
in love that never dies
but lives on from life to life,
but in my case, I know this to be.
I have dreams that cover many lives and times and experiences,
and I have recognized my true husband from many threads and many times.
It is not that important the time we have to spend with each other,
because we are never parted.
There is important work we have come into each incarnation to accomplish,
and there have been many years of being apart in each of these.
It does not diminish the love, but increases it, as we each know each other,
communicate over all time and space,
and know there is no end.
We are always in each others heart and mind
and our thoughts cross over all time.
The greatest love of all, serves all, and does not impede.
So today, as all days, I send my love, my heart, my understanding,
that in times of greatest need,
the needs of all are served by each of us,
doing what we most need to do and be,
joined in the eternal heart beat,
the eternal be.

( Written for the one who knows,
the one who hears and sees,
the one whose whisper is in a thousand dreams.
Over all time we will always be
in love that is greater than we.)
