Earth Balance And Whole Foods Holiday Bake-Off

November 21, 2010

In celebration of the launch of their new site, Made Just Right, Earth Balace is giving away a tub or their vegan butter everyday, and on November 29th, they’re kicking off a 4-week recipe contest.  Eight people will win a $400 gift card to Whole Foods Market and a year’s supply of Earth Balance.  I’ve…

Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks On My Wish List

November 19, 2010

Last night, I posted my Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks, but I thought it would be fun to share the cookbooks I’ve picked out for future conquest.  Most of them are either brand new or not yet released, but there are a couple I have no excuses for not owning!  Here are the cookbooks currently on…

Great Good Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

November 19, 2010

It’s Friday!  Let’s celebrate with a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe!  Flipping through the pages of More Great Good Dairy-Free Desserts Naturally, I came to the chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I think every dessert cookbook is pretty much required to have a chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I always shun them, continuing to make the…

My Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks

November 18, 2010

There are so many amazing vegan cookbooks out there.  Your shelves are probably already so jammed with unturned pages of recipes that every time you read about a new one your mind just wanders back to that unloved shelf.  I wish I could say I felt the same way, or maybe I don’t, but I…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Mid Vegan MoFo

November 18, 2010

I was planning to go back to my usual topics for this YTT, but since everyone might be a little too exhausted from all that cooking, baking, and creating to think too hard, I’ve decided to go with something a little more MoFo.  This is my first Vegan MoFo and I’ve loved scrolling through all…

Vegan Heavenly Horseradish Sauce

November 17, 2010

If it’s vegan and has horseradish in it, sign me up!  When my eye catches the word “horseradish” in a recipe title, it’s as good as made in my kitchen.  Well, I guess I’m not so certain about horseradish desserts, but luckily I haven’t come across any of those yet.  Horseradish cupcakes anyone?  Hey, I’m…

Vegan Garbanzo And Carrot Sauce

November 17, 2010

It’s true we eat with our eyes, and The Saucy Vegetarian‘s Garbanzo and Carrot Sauce (page 95) really isn’t the prettiest sauce I’ve seen.  When I served it to the husband, I’m fairly certain he looked at me like, “Did you just serve me a giant blob of mustard over brown rice and broccoli?”  While it…

Vegan Holiday Gift Suggestions

November 16, 2010

If you celebrate any winter gift-giving holiday, chances are you’ve begun to consider, or stress-out about, finding gifts for your friends and family.  Sure, your loved ones probably aren’t all vegan, but it’s your dollar and you’re probably going to be spending it on gifts that fit your lifestyle as well as theirs.  Or maybe…

Great Good Vegan New Orleans Bread Pudding

November 16, 2010

I know it’s Tuesday, but it really feels like Monday #2 over here.  I’m sure learning to go to bed earlier would make my mornings more pleasant, but for now I’ll just have to perk up with a cup of coffee and a nice bowl of warm bread pudding.  Mmm.. bread pudding… the breakfast of…

Saucy Vegan Maple Dijon and Ume Mustard Cream

November 15, 2010

Sauce can do a lot for a meal.  I love how you can take a completely ordinary weeknight meal and make it awesome with any number of easy sauces.  That’s where The Saucy Vegetarian comes in.  It’s an entire cook(less) book of sauces!  As far as I can tell, all sauces in this book are…
