Sunshine, Salad, Subway, And Snuggles

March 31, 2010

Today was another beautiful day!  The little guy and I spent most of the morning playing outside- looking for flowers, finding sticks that looked like letters, and just generally enjoying the sunshine.  I even got chased around by a wasp or two!  When lunchtime came around, I was in the mood for something fresh but…

Vegan Basil Citrus Portobello Steaks

March 31, 2010

While I was doing my Saturday shopping, I picked up a few mushrooms to make vegan portobello steaks.  I’ve loved these big, meaty mushrooms ever since I was a kid and they’re so hospitable to playing with a variety of flavors and seasonings in marinades and sauces.  This time I made a citrusy, tangy marinade…

Vegan Grilled Tempeh, Roasted Golden Beets, And Crispy Kale

March 30, 2010

Today was a beautiful day; I’m so happy to see the sunshine again!  After an afternoon outside with my toddler of tossing beanbags and drawing on the sidewalk, we came inside to plan dinner.  As you have probably noticed, I’ve been in a real cookbook mood lately.  I think joining the blogging community made me…

Vegan Caramel Pecan Bars Invade My Cookie Jar

March 30, 2010

Okay, not really.  If I put these in the cookie jar, no one would ever get their hand out because they’re so gooey and caramely, but absolutely delicious just the same!  As you may have read, last Saturday I purchased Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and it’s wasn’t an easy decision which vegan cookies…

Raw Vegan Alfredo Sauce With Shiitake Mushrooms

March 29, 2010

I’ve been wanting to make a vegan alfredo sauce for a long time now, so when my Twitter friend Mariesa tweeted about her raw alfredo (you can find her raw recipe blog here), I decided to give it a try!  I wasn’t exactly sure how much of seasoning I wanted to add, so I kept…

What’s In Your Vegan Makeup Bag?

March 29, 2010

Awhile back I did a What’s In Your Vegan Shower? post and I really enjoyed finding out what products you use and love!  The thing is, most of us are pros at knowing which foods are vegan and healthy, but when it comes to toiletries and household products, “natural” and “cruelty-free” products can be misleading. …

Vegan Yum Yum Broccoli Almond Sweet-And-Sour Tofu

March 28, 2010

Even though I got a new cookbook last weekend, there was still one recipe from Vegan Yum Yum I was wanting to make before I got into the next book.  If you can find it, good vegan Chinese takeout is a wonderful thing.  Unfortunately, we don’t have local vegan restaurant options so when I saw…

Saturday Shopping With Keri

March 27, 2010

Awhile back I had a request for a must-have vegan pantry list and I added it to my to-blog list.  Well, today while I was shopping I was looking through my handbag  for my grocery list and and found said to-blog list.  Oops!  I think that is going to be a really fun post so…

Happy Herbivore’s Vegan Black Bean Brownies

March 26, 2010

I’ve been wanting to try Happy Herbivore’s vegan black bean brownies for quite some time now, and tonight I decided it was time to make a batch. I would have preferred to make Lindsay’s recipe exactly as written, but due to my lack of ingredients I had to make a couple of changes.  Since I…

Vegan Snack Time: Ants On A Log

March 26, 2010

I know I’m a nerd, but I when I made this vegan snack I got a little nostalgic.  Did any of you ever eat “ants on a log” as a kid?  I actually had a Care Bears cookbook with the “recipe” for these, along with other simply things to make.  I think there was a…
