Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Nothing says holidays like a bag of candy canes and a hammer, does it?  Sure, peppermint pieces can be found, but I can’t think of any reason to go looking for them when I have a perfectly good excuse to use a hammer to break things!  When I was younger, we stalked the ice cream…

The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook Giveaway

November 14, 2010

**Giveaway Closed** Congratulations to our winner, Lacey, who said, “I went ahead and blogged and tweeted about this. I adore making simple nut cheeses that are based on macadamia nuts and raw zucchini, plus a little water, lemon juice, garlic, whole grain mustard and s&p. Homemade parma is awesome too.”  I’ll be contacting you for…

Vegan Carrot Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

Vegan Carrot Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

Hold the phones! This is important news!  I have a new favorite vegan cookie recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  Phew, I know you were on the edge of your seat.  Carrot Raisin Spice Chewies (page 37) with lemon glaze are now the official I Eat Trees cookie.  Well, I Eat Trees doesn’t…

Eat, Drink, And Be Vegan Burgers And Potato Squashers

November 13, 2010

I should start off by saying, these Spicoli Burgers (page 145) from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan are hands down the best vegan burgers I have ever made.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore Veganomicon‘s Black Bean Burgers, but these are just extraordinary!  The Spicoli Burgers are rice and hemp seed based burgers, with red…

Adopt A Turkey And Hug A Vegan

November 13, 2010

As a vegan in an entirely vegan household, you may be surprised to hear I not only spent money on a turkey, but that turkey is going to be right in the center of my dining room table come Thanksgiving.  Okay, not the turkey per se, but a photo of the turkey.  I’m sure if…

Eat, Drink, And Be Vegan Jumble-aya

November 12, 2010

It’s simply been too long since I’ve cracked open my copy of Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.  I don’t know how that pretty spring green book got pushed to the bottom of the pile, but it certainly doesn’t belong there!  When I pulled it out this week, I was doing my weekly meal planning, looking…

Vegan Brunch Garden Herb Spread

November 12, 2010

I’m so good about finding a use for every last leftover carrot or misplaced potato.  Bread doesn’t last long enough around here to even worry about any going to waste, and you all know leftovers are my favorite lunches.  But when it comes to half a package of tofu, there’s a good chance I’m going…

Vegan Brunch Tofu Benny

Vegan Brunch Tofu Benny

You know I’m excited about this one!  Tofu Benny (page 67)from Vegan Brunch has been on my to-make list since before I even purchased the cookbook.  I don’t know exactly what kept me from making it sooner, perhaps it seemed as thought it would be time-consuming, but it may be because I really don’t make…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Advice

November 11, 2010

It seems counter-intuitive, what with all the “traditional” carcass this time of year, but the holidays definitely seem to be a popular time to go vegan. Perhaps it’s the compassion and love in the holiday air, or as Isa put it, “Maybe because that dead bird in the middle of the table starts to seem…

Vegan Deli Cold Sesame Noodles

November 10, 2010

I’m so glad many of you are planning to try the Tempeh Pecan Salad!  I really think you’ll enjoy it.  Even if tempeh isn’t your thing, and I’m trying to imagine I don’t love it because I do, I think that recipe would be a great one to make because it has such great flavor…
