Vegan Vittles Stuffing Casserole And Raw For Dessert Pumpkin Pie

October 8, 2010

I’m still on an autumn recipe kick, so the stuffing casserole recipe (page 138) from Vegan Vittles sounded just perfect.  As a kid, I loved stuffing, but I thought it was a Thanksgiving-exclusive dish, and I always had to have my own batch made without celery.  Nothing ruined stuffing for me like biting into soft…

Gooda Uncheese And Vegan Vittles Maple Walnut Granola

One thing I’d never never really gotten into until I started reading blogs?  Granola.  Outside of our little blogging community, I’ve never really heard granola painted in a positive light.  It’s generally classified as a hippie health food, even though I know for a fact there are as many ways to make it unhealthy as…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Your Vegan Questions

October 7, 2010

It feels like I’ve asked a lot of questions!  I love reading your thoughtful responses and I think many of you enjoy reading people’s comments also, even if you’re not feeling like commenting on that particular question.  Trust me, I could think of questions endlessly, but what I really want to know is what you’d…

Raw For Dessert One Bowl Brownies And Vegan Vittles Stroganoff

October 6, 2010

Don’t get me wrong, my mom could bake.  She worked in the same bakery I did, long before I worked there, and the holiday season meant it was time to make 25 different kinds of cookies at her house.  But when it came to dinners, we had that box with the smiling hand on it…

Vegan Vittles Muffins That Taste Like Donuts And Tomato Bread Soup

October 6, 2010

Muffins that taste like doughnuts?  What will they think of next? Ice cream that tastes like cookie dough?  Oh, they have that, you say?  Huh.  And one last question.  Do you write doughnuts or donuts?  Because something in me really wants to write doughnuts even though I’m fairly certain both are widely accepted.  When I…

Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

I could sum it all up in “this is one amazing recipe”, but that would be a mighty short blog post.  Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs” (page 154) are so delicious, I’d serve them to my non-vegan friends and family in a heartbeat.  And I just don’t think I could say that about many…

Vegan Meal Planning Adventures

October 5, 2010

“You know, Keri, adding the word “adventures” to something doesn’t actually make it more exciting…”  I know, but meal planning is exciting!  Imagine never coming home after a long day and wondering, “What the heck am I going to make?”, never searching the pantry to put together an adequate meal in your already exhausted mind,…

Vegan Vittles Stick-To-Your-Ribs Chili

Vegan Vittles Stick-To-Your-Ribs Chili

It’s autumn and we all know what that means- chili season!  As a kid, chili really grossed me out.  I know, gasp, but there were always those big floppy skinless tomato slices hanging out in there, not to mention celery, my childhood arch nemesis.  My mom would spend all day making it, and I’d be…

Vegan Vittles Pecan Sticky Buns

Let’s start Monday off with something warm, gooey, and sweet!  These Pecan Sticky Buns (page 68) are from my new favorite cookbook, Vegan Vittles, another from Book Publishing Company.  I’ve been cooking through it lately and every single recipe is nothing short of amazing.  I’ve decided Jo Stepaniak is my vegan cookbook hero!  She writes recipes…

Vegan Pumpkin Harvest Rice

October 1, 2010

Yesterday morning, I flipped on the news to catch the weather.  I know I can just look it up online, but it makes me smile to “catch the weather” because it was something that seemed so grown up when I was a child.  My grandma would always say things like, “Oh shoot, I was hoping…
