Amy's Kitchen: Even though I'm usually a hardcore carnivore, I have fallen in at least like ( if not love ) with Amy's Kitchen, which has a line of organic vegetarian/vegan dishes available at the grocery store. Among the many dishes are chili mac, cheese enchiladas and the new swirls ( in flavors such as cheddar jalapeno as well as artichoke and Parmesan ).
