Vegan Gingerbread Cupcakes Take Over The World

November 10, 2010

I had big plans for Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World‘s Gingerbread Cupcakes (page 53).  I chopped a little extra crystallized ginger to decorate my Lemony Buttercream (page 96) topped cakes, but when I looked back over at the pile, I could have sworn it was getting smaller.   Knowing I must be crazy, I…

Vegan Sweet Potato Quesadillas

If you’re looking for something other than the usual sandwich or salad to make for a meal in a hurry, break out your panini press or grill pan and give these quesadillas a try!  They aren’t your average quesadillas because rather than being held together by packaged vegan cheese, these are stuffed with whipped sweet…

The Joy Of Vegan Fall Fruit Crisp

November 9, 2010

There’s nothing better than the warm, spicy scent of baking vegan cobbler or crisp on a cool autumn day.   Okay, there may be a few things better, but just work with me here.  This weekend, I warmed up my home with Fall Fruit Crisp (page 142) from The Joy of Vegan Baking.  The recipe suggests…

Planning a Thanksgiving meal can be a very stressful task, especially if your home is going to be filled with loved ones you’re dying to impress with your beloved vegan dishes.  Here are a few Thanksgiving menu suggestions from the I Eat Trees collection.  In order to be of the most help possible, I only…

Vegan Deli Tempeh Pecan Salad

Vegan Deli Tempeh Pecan Salad

When I decided on Vegan Deli‘s Tempeh Pecan Salad (page 80) for a weekend lunch, I thought it would be tasty, but I can’t say I was expecting anything special.  The recipe only has 6 ingredients, and no deli salad could be better than Awesome Eggless Salad!  After a no-effort preparation and a couple hours…

Vegan Corned Seitan With Cabbage And Chili With Dumplings On The Cheap

November 6, 2010

The past few weeks, I’ve been sharing a few budget-friendly meals from Vegan on the Cheap I’ve relied on to soften the grocery bill shock, so I figured why not keep it up?  This week I made two from the cookbook’s slow cooker section, the perfect type of recipe for morning people.  If you’re one…

Vegan Fried Rice

November 6, 2010

Most of us have an “end of the grocery week” day.  It’s the day when you’re jamming every single piece of leftover produce in the fridge into a soup, a pasta, anything to salvage it from the dreaded gone-to-waste-bin.  I hate seeing even half an onion or head of cabbage go unused, so I’ve found…

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Perhaps I enjoyed the vibrancy of Asian Fusion‘s dishes or perhaps I’m just trying to compensate for these solid grey clouds that have taken residence over our home, but even when moving to another cookbook, I chose colorful.  It certainly isn’t primavera here, but I couldn’t help but be drawn to the simplicity of Quinoa…

The Joy Of Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake

It’s time to add another photo to The I Eat Trees Vegan Pumpkin Recipes Collection!  Around the blog world, I’ve seen quite a few bloggers mention in nostalgic fashion that The Joy of Vegan Baking was either their very first vegan cookbook or their first vegan dessert cookbook.  It was mine!  Most of the recipes…
