Local Bounty Vegan Stuffed Bell Peppers

October 18, 2010

As you may have noticed, I get pretty excited over the recipe possibilities each new season’s produce selections offer.  No autumn pumpkin mania or summer salad obsession gets by me!  So of course, I was so excited when I cracked open the copy of Local Bounty sent to me by Book Publishing Company, only to…

Tofurky Vegan Pizza

October 18, 2010

I almost never say this, life goes too quickly as it is, but I was so glad when Friday rolled around last week.  I walked around all week feeling like someone had shaken up my brain and I couldn’t get the contents straightened out.  It was one of those weeks where every room I’d walk…

Vegan Blackstrap Gingersnap Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

Vegan Blackstrap Gingersnap Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

My dream of making every cookie in Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar is still alive and I’m one vegan cookie recipe closer with these Blackstrap Gingersnaps (page 42).  The best thing about cookies is most recipes are quick and simple, dirtying only one bowl and some measuring cups, and I can go from, “Hmm…..

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Guilt

October 14, 2010

My question today isn’t about right or wrong.  It isn’t about what, as a vegan, you should do or think.  Everyone has lines they draw, and chances are, no matter how far you’ve drawn your line, someone else has drawn theirs further.  I’ve known people who won’t get in their friends cars or sit in…

Unforgotten Vegan Cookbook Recipe Reviews

October 13, 2010

Believe it or not, sometimes I make a new recipe, take photos… and then don’t post about it.  Normally I just let them slide, but the past week or two I’ve collected a few meals I really enjoyed and still want to share, so I’ll just put them together in one little recap post!  First…

I Eat Trees Fall/Winter Apparel

October 13, 2010

I know it’s been unseasonably hot around the states, but cool weather is creeping up on us.  To celebrate autumn, the family got some new gear from the I Eat Trees shop!  If you stop by, Spreadshirt is offering 30% off orders with 3 or more long sleeved items, when you use code ADDSLEEVES (U.S.)…

Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker Fiesta Soup

October 12, 2010

This morning I tossed together another super simple, yummy recipe from The Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker, Fiesta Soup (page 35).  I have to admit, having lunch already piping hot and ready when noon rolls around is something I could really handle on a regular basis.  Actually, it’s a midday dream.  I made this recipe…

Vegan Brunch Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Vegan Brunch Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Muffins are the perfect thing to make when you’re feeling like baking.  You just can’t go wrong with muffins.  A batch makes more than you can eat in one sitting, so there are always extras to grab for a quick snack, or for breakfast as you’re running out the door, late for work with lipstick…

Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker Lasagna

October 11, 2010

There are so many wonderful things about the slow cooker, and every year around this time, its appeal returns to me.  It’s perfect for thick, hearty stews and brothy soups.  But the best thing about the slow cooker?  Dinner is ready on time and I didn’t have to do a single thing, because I did…

Vegan Agave Cupcakes Take Over The World

Vegan Agave Cupcakes Take Over The World

During my second weekend of meal planning, I realized the plan needs to be flexible.  I usually have a little more kitchen time over the weekend, but sometimes weekend adventures happen, leading to other adventures, and leaving far less cooking time than planned.  Actually, I only made one recipe all weekend, despite having seven planned!…
