Vegan Bridal Shower Goodies

May 31, 2010

Normally I feel like weekends fly by, but this was a long one.  I planned to go get the last few things for my bridal shower baking, but to make a long story short there were car issues and I got stuck at home.  So Friday morning my son and I finally made it to…

Vegan Portobello Steak Wraps

May 27, 2010

It’s been a really long day and the night just got away from me.  I wanted to post though, because I know tomorrow will be total baking madness.  I needed to use the leftovers and last of the produce in the refrigerator so there would be room for all the wedding shower goodies on Saturday. …

Your Thoughts Thursday: Being Bought

May 27, 2010

When I was a kid, it was a daily occurrence to hear someone say something like, “Well, would you eat that pile of dirt for ten dollars?” or “Would you kiss Jimmy for a million dollars?!”  And it was stupid.  Because no one was going to offer anyone money to do something so pointless and…

Grilled Eggplant, Bean Salad, And Vegan Cashew Cream

May 26, 2010

Today was another colorful day of eating for me!  I’m fairly sure I woke up this morning looking forward to last night’s leftovers for lunch.  That sounds a little sad, but the black bean casserole was so good.  After a morning of walks and mini-adventures, I sat down to this plateful of goodness.  I gave…

Little Man’s Vegan Green Juice

May 25, 2010

On last night’s post, Amanda mentioned I haven’t been updating everyone enough on the insane power and usefulness of my VitaMix.  And that’s so true!  It saves me so much time in the kitchen on little things, makes perfect blended juices, smoothies, and sauces, and turns out killer sorbet.  Of course, I’m sure I haven’t…

Vegan Kebabs And Grilled Pineapple

May 24, 2010

It might only be the end of May, but it’s definitely time for summer food!  Last night I made corn on the cob and sliced up a gorgeous mini watermelon.  I didn’t even grab the camera for the rest of our meal, but when I sliced this pretty baby open I had to break it…

The Blissful Chef’s Heavenly Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse

May 21, 2010

We have friends coming over tonight, and while I’m probably not above whipping out my netbook and blogging right in front of people, I figured doing it now would be the polite thing to do.  I have something completely deliciously and (un)sinfully decadent to share with you!  Today, Christy posted her recipe for Raw Chocolate…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Non-Vegan Companies

May 20, 2010

Obviously, as a vegan, you’re not going to go out and spend your dollar on a cheeseburger.  But what about buying a vegan meal at a place that also sells those cheeseburgers?  I’m not talking about contamination; It’s about the dollar.  Imagine it’s 100% guaranteed the meal is vegan, and every measure has been taken…

Steamed Veggies Alfredo And Vegan Key Lime Bars

May 19, 2010

If there are two things spring welcomes, it’s home renovations and weddings.  And we’ve been busy with a little bit of both.  My friend is getting married on June 19th and with her shower less than two weeks away, I’m stating to think I should get things “planned” outside of just sending invitations and waiting…

Vegan Salt’s Chickpea Coconut Curry

May 16, 2010

While this weekend was flying by, I had some time to make a couple of tasty meals.  Saturday’s lunch was leftover Chickpea Cutlets, and they were even better the next day.  If you haven’t flipped your Veganomicon to that one yet, I highly recommend it!  Just in case you were concerned I haven’t consumed any…
