Vegan Quesadilla Sunshine Burgers

June 17, 2010

I’m not through with my Chicago dining adventures yet; tomorrow morning will be Karyn’s Cooked, but a girl’s got to eat in the now too!  When we got home from our trip, the fridge was completely bare.  I knew we were leaving, so I worked my wasteless food planning system to ensure no produce went…

Vegan In Chicago: Chicago Diner

June 16, 2010

Hi everyone!  I’ve missed you!  We spent Monday and Tuesday in Chicago with my dad and ate some awesome vegan food.  Oh, and we also visited a couple museums and the planetarium, but let’s stick to what’s really important here- the food!   Since we ate quite a lot at each place, I’m going to give…

Purely Decadent Vegan Ice Cream

June 14, 2010

Busy, busy, busy!  We had a great weekend visiting my mom, and once again she stocked her fridge with plenty of goodies for us.  Last night, I made a quick and easy vegan whole wheat penne with portabella mushrooms and yellow and green zucchini.  I just cooked the pasta and lightly sauteed the veggies, tossed…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Kids

June 10, 2010

When it comes to children, new parents quickly realize it’s more than just bringing a new family member into their lives.  There are so many decisions to be made- schools of thought on how do everything from diapering to sleeping, schooling to diet, and everything in between.  Some tirelessly research every possible option, while others…

A Sandwich, Vegan Pizza, And Trifle

June 9, 2010

Today’s lunchtime remix sandwich was pretty epic.  There were a couple of grilled portobellos and eggplant slices left from last night’s dinner, so I decided to make sandwiches with them.  I paninied (that’s a verb now) grilled eggplant and  a grilled portobello, topped with basil and garlic marinara and a little vegan cheddar Daiya on…

Curry, Vegan Fried Okra, And A Quiz

June 8, 2010

I know fried okra isn’t exactly healthy, but it’s so good.  And easy to make vegan!  As a side dish to last night’s dinner, I used this recipe, halved it, and made vegan buttermilk by adding a little vinegar to soy milk and letting it sit for 10 minutes.  Oh, and I used far less…

Vegamazing Vegan Ham And Pineapple Pizza

June 7, 2010

After this crazy-busy month of June is over I’ll stop taking these three day weekends from blogging.  I really don’t think my brain can handle a whole three days on hold!  I’m not sure what it is about blogging that makes it so hard to get back  to, but the first post after a few…

ED&BV Lemon Garlic Vegan Pasta And Vanilla Snow Cones

June 4, 2010

Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan just joined my cookbook collection a couple of months ago, but it somehow already worked its way out of my repertoire.  We couldn’t have that, so yesterday afternoon I started flipping through  the pages for a recipe with ingredients I had in the pantry.  When I came to Lemon Garlic…

Potato Casserole And Averie’s Vegan Soft Serve

June 3, 2010

I’ll start with yesterday’s lunchtime remix, because it was a really tasty one!  Over mixed greens, I piled cold leftover fajita casserole, and topped it off with a little salsa.  I surrounded the whole delicious mess with tortilla chips for yummy decoration.  This vegan fajita salad was as good as, if not better than, the…

Vegan Fajita Casserole

June 2, 2010

Last night’s dinner was like someone stole the tortillas and I was forced to dump all the fajita ingredients into a big casserole dish!  Oh, and I grilled some corn on the cob too.  I should spare you the picture of this vegan casserole in the baking dish because the lighting really accented the baked-on…
