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…

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…

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.

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 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…

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…

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…
