Vegan On The Cheap Peanut Penne And Three Bean Loaf

Vegan On The Cheap Peanut Penne And Three Bean Loaf

After my first meal planning shopping trip, I mentioned the grocery bills hadn’t been so pretty.  Hoping to live and learn, I decided to lighten up the meal expenses by pulling out my trusty Vegan on the Cheap.  I love how this cookbook’s dishes are priced out to be under $2 per serving, and many…

Local Bounty Vegan Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties

October 20, 2010

Once again, Local Bounty demonstrates seasonal goodness with these autumn-worthy Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties (page 126). Acorn squash is a favorite because most people have tried it, or at least heard of it, and many people are comfortable grabbing it from the market without panicking over what to do with it.  It’s delicious…

Vegan Brunch Pumpkin Bran Muffins

October 20, 2010

Oh, Isa, how did you ever think to take a baked good so bland and ordinary as the bran muffin and bedazzle it up with flavors as magical as pumpkin and spice?  I can’t say I’ve ever baked bran muffins, but when I came across the recipe for Pumpkin Bran Muffins (page 167) in Vegan…

Local Bounty Vegan Pasta With Collard Greens

October 19, 2010

It’s almost too simple to post… almost.  Most of us have made this dish.  The afternoon slipped away, you had to go pick the kids up from school unexpectedly or take the spare set of keys to your husband because he locked his in the car (that one is me), and by the time you…

Vegan Peanut Butter And Mexican Snickerdoodle Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

October 19, 2010

Two more down… a lot to go… Last week, I made two more vegan cookie recipes from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar to share with my little class.  I chose to make Peanut Butter Crisscrosses (page 81) first, because I thought a simple peanut butter cookie would be well-received, and I wanted to have…

Local Bounty Vegan Stuffed Bell Peppers

October 18, 2010

As you may have noticed, I get pretty excited over the recipe possibilities each new season’s produce selections offer.  No autumn pumpkin mania or summer salad obsession gets by me!  So of course, I was so excited when I cracked open the copy of Local Bounty sent to me by Book Publishing Company, only to…

Vegan Blackstrap Gingersnap Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

My dream of making every cookie in Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar is still alive and I’m one vegan cookie recipe closer with these Blackstrap Gingersnaps (page 42).  The best thing about cookies is most recipes are quick and simple, dirtying only one bowl and some measuring cups, and I can go from, “Hmm…..

Unforgotten Vegan Cookbook Recipe Reviews

October 13, 2010

Believe it or not, sometimes I make a new recipe, take photos… and then don’t post about it.  Normally I just let them slide, but the past week or two I’ve collected a few meals I really enjoyed and still want to share, so I’ll just put them together in one little recap post!  First…

Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker Fiesta Soup

October 12, 2010

This morning I tossed together another super simple, yummy recipe from The Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker, Fiesta Soup (page 35).  I have to admit, having lunch already piping hot and ready when noon rolls around is something I could really handle on a regular basis.  Actually, it’s a midday dream.  I made this recipe…

Vegan Brunch Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Vegan Brunch Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Muffins are the perfect thing to make when you’re feeling like baking.  You just can’t go wrong with muffins.  A batch makes more than you can eat in one sitting, so there are always extras to grab for a quick snack, or for breakfast as you’re running out the door, late for work with lipstick…
