Vegan Biscuits And Sausage Gravy

December 27, 2010

Hello, everyone!  As you may have noticed (or not), I took a week off my daily blogging to enjoy the holidays with my family.  If you blog, you know a week feels like a year, so I hope you all haven’t forgotten about me!  We had a fantastic Christmas, and the little man really got…

Vegan Crab Cakes

December 17, 2010

While I’ve read wonderful things about Match products on other blogs, they aren’t available around here, so I had never actually tasted them to see for myself.  But when I was ordering the Match roast from Vegan Essentials for the holidays, I decided it was a great opportunity to try one of their other offerings. …

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegans And Soy

December 16, 2010

Unlike anything else in the healthy eating world (and by that I mean just like everything else in the healthy eating world), there is mixed information on soy.  According to the soymilk box, soy is going to save our heart, our family’s lives, the world.  And much of the general public associates soy with “healthy”…

Gardein Vegan Spring Rolls And Beefless Bites

December 15, 2010

Just in time for holiday party season, Gardein has come up with two new appetizer recipes to share, chick’n spring rolls and beefless bites.  Send these pretty babies around the room and I’m guessing you’re going to get your tray back licked clean.  I love that the ingredient lists are kept brief because goodness knows…

Match Vegan Roast And Gardein Turk’y

December 14, 2010

Not long ago, if you wanted to buy a vegan roast, your options were pretty much Tofurky or Tofurky.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love Tofurky roast, but since variety is the spice of life and we’d hate for people to use up all their best Tofurky jokes prematurely (Okay, maybe demand has something…

Breakfast Treats: Vegan Kringle And Oatmeal Bars

December 13, 2010

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m just not one to whip up an elaborate breakfast on an average day.  I love breakfast foods, but I usually save them for “breakfast for dinner” days.  But sometimes, like holidays and weekends, something special is in order.  If I’m already preparing a huge meal for later in the day,…

Vegan Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Pecan Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes

December 9, 2010

Christmas is creeping up quickly, so I wanted to share a few of the simplest recipes from my vegan Christmas menu.  When it comes to the cranberry sauce, many people love the orange cranberry flavor combination, and that’s what I made last year for the masses, but I much prefer the plain cranberry, sugar, water…

Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole With Marshmallows

December 8, 2010

This sweet potato casserole truly belongs on the dessert table, but it looks so pretty with the meal spread, as well.  No matter where or when you decide to serve it, everyone will swarm towards this classic holiday dish.  And you’ll be happy to make it for them every year because the recipe is so…

Vegan Mushroom Stuffing

December 7, 2010

I wanted to take a little break from the holiday recipes to get in my vegan stocking stuffer ideas, but now I’ll work my way back into the eats.  First, I don’t think I’ve posted a photo of my little man in awhile, so these are from meeting Santa this weekend.  I don’t know about…

Vegan Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas

December 6, 2010

I’m not sure why, but the stockings were always my favorite part of Christmas.  Maybe it’s because I usually knew what I was getting, but the stocking was a complete surprise, or perhaps I just have an affinity for mini goodies, but either way, I looked forward to dumping out that sock of treasures!  If…
