Fresh Vegan Tacos Supreme

March 11, 2010

Tacos, again?! No, seriously, but these are amazing!  If I’m making TVP for vegan tacos I usually just use plain and add seasonings, but when I saw this already taco-seasoned TVP from Fantastic World Foods, I decided to give it a shot.  Wow!  This taco filling has amazing flavor and is literally ready in minutes…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Receiving Gifts

March 11, 2010

I figure that I spend enough time filling the internet with my thoughts and opinions, so the least that I can do is dedicate one post per week to asking for yours!  Besides, I love conversation and I’m hoping this is a way to trick get you all to  converse with me.  The questions can…

Pink Protein Power Vegan Smoothie

March 11, 2010

Man, if I could just think of a word for smoothie that started with P, I’d be awesome! Anyway, it’s not that I need a lot of extra protein in my diet, but honestly I’m just bad at breakfast.  I love to make breakfast foods at other meals, but I guess my appetite just doesn’t…

Bleu Moon Sweets Vegan Italian Popcorn

March 10, 2010

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered Italian popcorn, but the other night I broke it out during movie night and it’s so good that I just had to blog about it!  For some reason I think I was imagining vegan popcorn with Italian dressing dumped over it or something, but that isn’t…

Go Raw Live Vegan Chocolate

March 10, 2010

I was originally enticed by a post on Veg Out With Us featuring these raw vegan chocolate treats, and when I noticed that they were sweetened with agave nectar I was sold!  I had been wanting to find myself a little agave sweet treat and these looked perfect for the job.  I think I could…

Dr. Cow Vegan Tree Nut Cheeses

March 9, 2010

I’ve been wanting to try Dr. Cow’s nut vegan cheeses since I first heard about them over a year ago, but having heard extreme mixed reviews, just hadn’t taken the chance until now.  I admit I was raised on cheese.  Growing up, my mom was a buyer for a chain of grocery stores and was…

Vegan Pizza With Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese

March 8, 2010

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of an awesome vegan pizza.  I love to try out different vegan cheeses to see if one reigns supreme over all others when it comes to the pie.  So far, I’ve used Chicago Soy Dairy Teese, Daiya Shreds, and just last night, Follow Your Heart.  Follow Your…

A Vegan Birthday Weekend

March 7, 2010

I haven’t gotten a chance to blog for a couple of days, but it has been an amazing weekend!  Our little boy turned two on Thursday, so we took him out for lunch and a little shopping to celebrate!  The night before, I did some research on vegan dining in chain restaurants.  We don’t live…

Bunny Monkey Vegan Smoothie

March 4, 2010

I’m so addicted to vegan smoothies!  It’s like a chilly treat, but I can get all kinds of healthy nutrients in there and tons of energy.  My current favorite smoothie ingredients, aside from the fruits and veggies, are peanut butter or raw cocoa powder.  Everything is better with chocolate right?  My Bunny Monkey smoothie is…

Dixie’s Vegan Peanut Butter Birthday Bones

March 3, 2010

Today is our dog Dixie’s 5th birthday!  To celebrate, I always make her special dog treats.  Actually, Dixie’s homemade vegan dog treats became kind of famous around here.  As simple as they are to make, family members request them for their dogs for holidays, people at my old office would buy them by the container,…
