Strawberry Vegan Ice Cream Forever

March 26, 2010

Okay, you’re probably thinking, “Keri, you’re blogging about a bowl of vegan ice cream.  You really have too much free time.”  Easily amused, my friends, let’s go with easily amused.  And it was a really good bowl of ice cream!  I’m mostly excited because I was so mad at my stupid blender for being a…

Vegan Messy Steves

March 25, 2010

Okay, they’re sloppy joes, but I didn’t want to be unoriginal!  My mom noticed a sale on Fantastic Foods mixes at her local store and picked us up a few.  I’ve only tried their vegan taco filling, and it was really tasty, so I was excited to get to try some of the others.  Tonight,…

Vegan Yum Yum Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes

March 25, 2010

Last night, I made a second recipe from Vegan Yum Yum, Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes.  I knew this one was going to be a hit with my sweet-flavor-loving family, but I think I underestimated exactly how big of a hit it would be (I’m not going to name names, but when I came back from…

Lunchtime Remix: Vegan Chipotle Pasta And Corn Soup

March 24, 2010

As you all know, I have a love for leftovers, and today I made lunch entirely out of them!  I took some leftover whole wheat penne and mixed in the “sausage” and veggies from last night’s Mexican Chipotle “Sausage” and Rice.  To top it all off, I used extra marinara from Monday’s Red and White…

The Joy Of Vegan German Apple Cake

March 24, 2010

Last night I pulled out The Joy of Vegan Baking and went browsing for an apple recipe.  I came to German Apple Cake and decided to give it a shot.  The ingredients in this book’s recipes are very common, and while they mostly call for for white sugar and white flour, they’d be great for…

Vegan Rice And Mexican Chipotle “Sausage”

March 23, 2010

I really love the flavor of Field Roast’s vegan grain sausages, so I picked up the Mexican Chipotle since it’s the only one we hadn’t tried.  It warns on the package that it’s hot and spicy, but since we love spicy food I wasn’t too worried about it.  After putting on a pot of brown…

Vegan Yum Yum Red And White Cauliflower Bake

March 22, 2010

Tonight, I pulled out my copy of Vegan Yum Yum and went on a hunt for a recipe I had all of the ingredients to make.  Everything in this cookbook looks absolutely delicious, but I’ve had pantry bad luck with it; it seems every time I go to make something, I’m missing at least one…

Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Raw Vegan Macaroons

March 22, 2010

When I worked in a bakery in college, the only goodies that I truly coveted were the macaroons.  I didn’t even think that I liked coconut until I met the macaroon!  I honestly haven’t had a macaroon in years, probably at least 6 years, and when I saw this recipe for the raw vegan cookies…

Veggie Dogs, Vegan Rice And Bean Burritos, And Starbucks Snacks

March 22, 2010

This weekend, we took another all-too-short trip to visit my family.  When we got in Friday night, we were getting hungry so we stopped and picked up some Lightlife Smart Dogs and buns.  I’ve actually never had a veggie dog before, so I was a little apprehensive, but with a little mustard and horseradish it…

A Surprise Vegan Beauty Gift

March 20, 2010

When I stepped out to get the mail Wednesday, I was surprised by a large box sitting on the front step.  I wasn’t expecting anything, especially anything so large, so I couldn’t imagine what it could be.  When I picked up the box and noticed the Australia post tag, I could only think of one…
