A Vegan Breakfast Sandwich, Cinnamon Bread, And Corn Dip

A Vegan Breakfast Sandwich, Cinnamon Bread, And Corn Dip

Whoops!  I don’t know how it happened, but one second I was putting my little man to bed, and the next I was waking up in my bed, grabbing for the clock in the darkness.  I hate that feeling! When you wake up and you’re like, “Wait. Where am I?  Is it day or night?!”…

Sautéed Vegan Cheese Tortellinis And Vegan Mozzarella Bread

Tonight I hand-made tortellinis, expecting to develop a huge respect for vegan pasta in the process.  The recipe I used is a test recipe from Hearty Vegan (testing is only a couple more weeks if you’re sick of being tormented with pictures of yet to be published recipes).  While it was definitely more time consuming…

Vegan Uncheese Peanut Butter Fudge Pie

Vegan Uncheese Peanut Butter Fudge Pie

Remember yesterday when I said I couldn’t eat a whole pie anytime soon?  Well, that was before I tried this pie.  I’m still not planning on eating the whole thing, but the Peanut Butter Fudge Pie (page 173) from The Ulitmate Uncheese Cookbook has invoked vegan=pie-eating desires within me I never knew I had. Oh,…

Vegan Uncheese Zucchini Herb Calzones And Lemon Teasecake

If you can’t tell from my last post, I’m crazy about The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook.  So why would I want to end the party already?!  This morning, I thumbed through this new-to-me cookbook classic in search of the perfect lunch.  When I found Cheezy Zucchini and Herb Calzones (page 130), I knew we had a…

Vegan Uncheese Fondue And Jalapeño Bratwurst

August 8, 2010

I’m going to be honest with you; I had to really restrain myself from titling this post “OMG!@#$%^&* Vegan Fondue!!!!111″, but somehow I managed to pull it together…  The good people over at Book Publishing Company were so kind as to send me a copy of The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook (and Speed Vegan, but more…

Gardein Chick’n Scallopini Over Garlic Vegan Pasta

Gardein Chick’n Scallopini Over Garlic Vegan Pasta

Happy Saturday!  Today’s eats have been entirely leftovers and fresh fruits and veggies straight out of the fridge.  Frozen leftover black bean burgers from Veganomicon were a lifesaver when I walked in from the grocery store only to drop my bags and hear, “What’s for dinner? It’s time to eat.”  “Oh, great, I have no…

Eating Vegan At Copper Dog Cafe

August 6, 2010

When my husband saw an article in the paper about a vegan-friendly restaurant opening up in Lafayette, we had to check it out.  So last night, we packed up our little family and headed out on our dinner adventure. Copper Dog Cafe is located in a historic downtown location and couldn’t be more beautiful.  The…

Vegan Creme De Menthe Bars, Chia, And Ancho Vinaigrette

August 5, 2010

Last night I stayed up a little too late to make Averie of Love Veggies and Yoga’s Vegan Creme de Menthe Bars.  Actually, I was already up too late, and the bars didn’t take very long to make at all.  I didn’t have creme de menthe, so as Averie suggested, I used a tablespoon mint…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Types Of Vegan

August 5, 2010

When I joined the online vegan community, I honestly hadn’t realized the great divide between different “types” of vegans.  I was naive to think a vegan was simply a vegan, but I was quickly schooled on the “denominations” within us and which beliefs set each group apart.  People choose to be vegan for all different…

BBQ Baked Tofu And Vegan Fried Okra

It’s a hot, beautiful day and I’ve already taken the little man on two bike rides!  This morning, as we were rounding the last street on our adventure before heading towards home, we came across a man leaf blowing the pebbles, leaf pieces, and dirt from his portion of the already clean street.  He had…
