More Vegan Yum Yum Tofu

April 30, 2010

I didn’t blog yesterday and it feels like it’s been forever (I know everyone says that)!  The inspiration just wasn’t hitting me because I’ve been guilty of doing something I haven’t done in quite some time- repeating dishes!  Yesterday, I was at Target just browsing.  When I passed the grocery section and saw the slot…

Vegan Eggplant Parmesan And Green Beans Pumpkindine

April 28, 2010

Last night I mentioned I was going to an event that wasn’t vegan-friendly, so I made a nice vegan pasta before heading out.  I had some celeriac, or celery root, I had been wanting to try, so I decided to roast it along with a head of broccoli.  I poured my favorite marinara over cooked…

Ezekiel Vegan Bread And Coconut Water

April 27, 2010

I don’t know if other people are this way or if I’m just part squirrel, but come spring and summer time, I’m hungry.  I can go all winter sustaining myself on nuts and twigs without much appetite, but when it starts to warm up I can eat everything (vegan) in sight without a second thought. …

Grocery Shopping And Vegan Cheezy Mac

April 26, 2010

There are few things in life I enjoy as much as grocery shopping.  Yes, seriously!  Tonight we went to Whole Foods to do the weekly shopping.  I really only needed to pick up produce, but I did have a few must-trys in mind.  First, my store finally put out the Daiya, so I had to…

Tofu Scramble And Loving Cafe Vegan Restaurant

April 25, 2010

Admittedly, this weekend is a blur.  I mean, all weekends go by too fast, but woah.  Friday night we drove to visit my family, stopping first at my grandma’s to make dinner.  I made a tofu scramble loaded with sliced portabella mushrooms and fresh spinach.  You can’t go wrong with a tofu scramble! Saturday morning…

Guacamole Dip And Vegan Purple Soup

April 23, 2010

Last night I went shopping with my sister in law and by the time we got home I was just too tired to blog.  Thank you, as always, for the comments on Your Thoughts Thursday; I was hoping even more people would have inspirational stories about influencing the lives of others, but since it was…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Influence

April 22, 2010

Happy Earth Day!  Stereotypically, the vegan community tends to be a more tree eating hugging crowd, but there is one school of thought both vegans and eco-enthusiasts have to overcome.  “One person can’t make a difference.”  Many people maintain this reasoning as they guzzle down their soda and toss the aluminum cans in the trash…

Grapefruit Icebox Cookies Invade My Vegan Cookie Jar

April 21, 2010

The time had come to make another glorious recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  But which one to choose??  Okay, I’m just being dramatic; I actually knew which one I was going to make because I’d purchased a big, honkin’ grapefruit for just the occasion. Not only are these Frosted Grapefruit Icebox Cookies…

Eat, Drink, And Be A Saucy Vegan

April 20, 2010

Today was an Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan day!  I started off my day with a little almond butter on toast, rather than my normal juice or smoothie.  I don’t know, it just sounded good so I went with it.  As it came close to lunchtime, I remembered I had been wanting to make the…

Gardein Vegan Rice Trios

April 20, 2010

A couple of nights ago, I mentioned that we tried the trio of Gardein vegan rice trios.  When I saw them sitting there on the refrigerated shelves with the glowing $1.99 sticker slapped on front, I knew it was the perfect opportunity for us to try them.  Now, if you’ve read my blabberings blog from the beginning,…
