A Little Trip And Vegan Taco Soup

July 31, 2010

I’ll keep this post short and sweet because I know it’s Friday night, but when I haven’t blogged for a couple of days I miss you all!  My mom and I took a little trip to Shipshewana, Indiana to check out the flea market.  We didn’t really find anything while we were there, because what…

Kale Chips And Vegan Pasta Salad

Kale Chips And Vegan Pasta Salad

Even with my devout love of kale, I’d never made or tried a kale chip until last night.  I’ve seen various recipes for them around blogs; I’ve even seen them packaged for sale on shelves at Whole Foods.  And despite wanting to make them for so long, this poor recipe kept getting pushed aside.  Finally,…

Vegan Pasta Alfredo And Lemon Poppyseed Scones

It’s been such a lovely Monday! Yep, I really used the words lovely and Monday in the same sentence. This morning the little man and I got in an hour bike ride; I wanted to go longer but he insisted it was time for a snack- some fruit, preferably a mango.  His demands are getting…

Vegan Summer Weekend – Chili Dogs, Burgers, And More

Aside from a Saturday migraine, we had a great summer weekend!  We spent the afternoons in the in-laws’ pool, the evenings bike riding, and post-toddler bed time working on I Eat Trees, still slightly pink from the sun.  You might notice some things out of place and some things missing, but don’t worry, we’re just…

Awesome Cucumber Pepper Salad And Vegan French Toast

July 23, 2010

I’ve been having some pretty great kitchen luck lately.  You know when you’re just on a roll and everything you make is gold?  Yeah, that good. I’m so in love with maple dijon baked tofu that I made it again yesterday.  For some reason, baked tofu and brown rice is my biggest craving.  I’ll just…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Selective Veganism

July 22, 2010

Last week, Stacey Bendet, designer and founder of the alice + olivia brand, showed up at an event wearing a fur vest.  The thing is, Bendet is “vegan”.  She commented, “I’m vegan, actually. I don’t eat [animals], I don’t put meat in my body. So every once in a while I think it’s okay to…

Stuffed Peppers And The Joy Of Vegan Baking Brownies

July 20, 2010

I’m not even going to talk about it, because I know I this stuff pops up way too often on my blog, but there may or may not have been raw carrot and zucchini noodles with raw alfredo on my plate at lunch.  It was an official clean out the fridge leftovers lunch, as far…

Happy Birthday To Me, Vegan-Style

July 18, 2010

This post title probably couldn’t be more narcissistic, but I’m alright with that.  Yesterday, my family had a little birthday party for me and it was so much fun.  First was the food.  My mom made vegan black bean burgers from Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, cranberry broccoli slaw, baked beans, corn on the cob, plus…

And we’re back with the birthday celebration giveaways.  There will be one more after this one, but it will have to start slightly after my birthday (July 18th) since the goods haven’t arrived yet.  That’s alright,…
