Vegan Brunch Pumpkin French Toast

October 26, 2010
Vegan Brunch Pumpkin French Toast

As I stood on my porch, hovering over breakfast with a camera rather than a fork, my neighbor walked out to hang up her laundry.  It wasn’t the first time I’ve been “caught” playing food paparazzi, neighbors on either side quite frequently witness me snapping away towards bowls of pasta or loaves of bread, but…

Sublime Seven-Layer Vegan Pizza

October 25, 2010

Everyone most likely knows what I’m talking about when I mention 7-layer dip, but have you ever translated into pizza?!  I have a confession to go with this amazing recipe from The Sublime Restaurant Cookbook.  When I first came to the 7-Layer Vegan Pizza recipe (page 50), I had one of those, “Why didn’t I…

The Domestic Vegan’s Pumpkin Yeast Bread

It’s no secret I love my bread machine.  Sure, making bread by hand isn’t much more difficult and can but fun, but I think somehow the bread machine fulfills my childhood desire for one of those fancy Easy Bake Ovens.  Those commercials made it look so cool didn’t they?!  You’re just chillin’ in your room,…

Vegan On The Cheap Peanut Penne And Three Bean Loaf

After my first meal planning shopping trip, I mentioned the grocery bills hadn’t been so pretty.  Hoping to live and learn, I decided to lighten up the meal expenses by pulling out my trusty Vegan on the Cheap.  I love how this cookbook’s dishes are priced out to be under $2 per serving, and many…

Quick Vegan Pumpkin Seed Brittle

Have I made this recipe before? Absolutely.  Have I made it this season?  Three times.  Have I blogged about it yet?  No, because I can’t keep anyone’s hands out of it long enough to take a photo.  And we all know I can’t make a post without a photo… unless Thursdays count… Anyway, this vegan…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Children

October 21, 2010

Back in June, we discussed raising vegan children.  I’ve had quite a few people raise the discussion topic since that post, so I thought it would be a great time to revisit it.  Maybe last time you weren’t confident enough in your response to share it, perhaps your opinion has changed, or possibly you weren’t…

Local Bounty Vegan Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties

October 20, 2010

Once again, Local Bounty demonstrates seasonal goodness with these autumn-worthy Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties (page 126). Acorn squash is a favorite because most people have tried it, or at least heard of it, and many people are comfortable grabbing it from the market without panicking over what to do with it.  It’s delicious…

Vegan Brunch Pumpkin Bran Muffins

October 20, 2010

Oh, Isa, how did you ever think to take a baked good so bland and ordinary as the bran muffin and bedazzle it up with flavors as magical as pumpkin and spice?  I can’t say I’ve ever baked bran muffins, but when I came across the recipe for Pumpkin Bran Muffins (page 167) in Vegan…

Local Bounty Vegan Pasta With Collard Greens

October 19, 2010

It’s almost too simple to post… almost.  Most of us have made this dish.  The afternoon slipped away, you had to go pick the kids up from school unexpectedly or take the spare set of keys to your husband because he locked his in the car (that one is me), and by the time you…

Vegan Peanut Butter And Mexican Snickerdoodle Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

October 19, 2010

Two more down… a lot to go… Last week, I made two more vegan cookie recipes from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar to share with my little class.  I chose to make Peanut Butter Crisscrosses (page 81) first, because I thought a simple peanut butter cookie would be well-received, and I wanted to have…
