Kind Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

January 21, 2010

Tonight, I officially made my first recipe from The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone!  Since I have a lifelong love (and craving) of peanut butter, I went with her chocolate peanut butter cups!  These vegan snack treats were really simple to make and required only Earth Balance, peanut butter, graham crackers, soy milk, sugar, and…

I Eat Vegan Books: The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone

January 20, 2010

Last weekend I picked up The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.  While I am already vegan, I love to continuously learn new information, tricks, methods, recipes, and just let myself become inspired in new ways.  I will also mention as a preteen, Alicia Silverstone was like my hero.  I thought she was the most beautiful,…

Yummy Vegan Banana Bread

January 20, 2010

I got this vegan bread recipe from my vegan Twitter friend, Katie, last night and by luck I just happened to have 3 ripe bananas on hand to whip up a loaf this morning.  I know I sound like a home fragrance saleswoman, but my favorite part about baking treats like this is the way…

A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Buttermilk Wheat Bread

January 19, 2010

I make a ton of bread.  I make all of the bread our family eats, unless some special treat catches my eye in the grocery store, so when I find a vegan bread recipe I want to try I usually make it a few times, toying with the ingredients and such before I call it…

Vegan Hearty Lentil Stew

January 19, 2010

When I was planning tonight’s dinner I knew exactly what I had on hand and it just seemed like one of those days where I was missing some vital ingredient from every recipe I wanted to try.  I decided to take the “throw what you have in a crock pot and call it vegan stew…

January 18, 2010

I know a lot of you are on the go and need to have a few convenience meals on hand just in case you’re running late for work or busy doing a million other things, and need a quick meal that’s one step and chow.  For days like that, I completely adore Annie Chun’s bowls. …

Homemade Vegan Pizza With Daiya Shreds

January 18, 2010

Okay, I know I just posted about vegan pizza last week, but I have a really good excuse reason for another pizza night so soon!  I recently purchased a couple of bags of Daiya shreds, one Italian and one Cheddar, and I wanted to put them up against my usual mozzarella Teese because vegan cheese…

Silk Vegan Creamer

January 18, 2010

I’m actually trying to kick the coffee habit after admitting I have a severe addiction to caffeine.  (I’m talking migraines and crappy mood swings when I missed my daily dose!)  But I do still enjoy a hot cup of coffee every now and then.  When I made the switch from vegetarian to vegan I was…

Vegan “Chicken” Fried Rice

January 17, 2010

Tonight, I made vegan fried rice, which is one of my favorite dinners.  The best thing about this dish is that you can tailor it to your, or your family’s, personal tastes.  It’s also a great way to get everyone a healthy dose of veggies, and make good use of what you have available in…

Ingredients: 7/8 cup boiling water 1 cup TVP 1 packet of your favorite taco seasoning In a bowl, pour the boiling water over…
