Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker Lasagna

October 11, 2010

There are so many wonderful things about the slow cooker, and every year around this time, its appeal returns to me.  It’s perfect for thick, hearty stews and brothy soups.  But the best thing about the slow cooker?  Dinner is ready on time and I didn’t have to do a single thing, because I did…

Vegan Agave Cupcakes Take Over The World

Vegan Agave Cupcakes Take Over The World

During my second weekend of meal planning, I realized the plan needs to be flexible.  I usually have a little more kitchen time over the weekend, but sometimes weekend adventures happen, leading to other adventures, and leaving far less cooking time than planned.  Actually, I only made one recipe all weekend, despite having seven planned!…

Vegan Vittles Stuffing Casserole And Raw For Dessert Pumpkin Pie

October 8, 2010

I’m still on an autumn recipe kick, so the stuffing casserole recipe (page 138) from Vegan Vittles sounded just perfect.  As a kid, I loved stuffing, but I thought it was a Thanksgiving-exclusive dish, and I always had to have my own batch made without celery.  Nothing ruined stuffing for me like biting into soft…

Gooda Uncheese And Vegan Vittles Maple Walnut Granola

Gooda Uncheese And Vegan Vittles Maple Walnut Granola

One thing I’d never never really gotten into until I started reading blogs?  Granola.  Outside of our little blogging community, I’ve never really heard granola painted in a positive light.  It’s generally classified as a hippie health food, even though I know for a fact there are as many ways to make it unhealthy as…

Raw For Dessert One Bowl Brownies And Vegan Vittles Stroganoff

October 6, 2010

Don’t get me wrong, my mom could bake.  She worked in the same bakery I did, long before I worked there, and the holiday season meant it was time to make 25 different kinds of cookies at her house.  But when it came to dinners, we had that box with the smiling hand on it…

Vegan Vittles Muffins That Taste Like Donuts And Tomato Bread Soup

October 6, 2010

Muffins that taste like doughnuts?  What will they think of next? Ice cream that tastes like cookie dough?  Oh, they have that, you say?  Huh.  And one last question.  Do you write doughnuts or donuts?  Because something in me really wants to write doughnuts even though I’m fairly certain both are widely accepted.  When I…

Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

I could sum it all up in “this is one amazing recipe”, but that would be a mighty short blog post.  Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs” (page 154) are so delicious, I’d serve them to my non-vegan friends and family in a heartbeat.  And I just don’t think I could say that about many…

Vegan Vittles Stick-To-Your-Ribs Chili

Vegan Vittles Stick-To-Your-Ribs Chili

It’s autumn and we all know what that means- chili season!  As a kid, chili really grossed me out.  I know, gasp, but there were always those big floppy skinless tomato slices hanging out in there, not to mention celery, my childhood arch nemesis.  My mom would spend all day making it, and I’d be…

Chicago Diner Vegan Cutlets

September 29, 2010

Save a fish; fry a tofu!  Okay, that was corny… but do it anyway.  The Chicago Diner Cookbook calls these “Diner Cutlets” (page 101), but they actually reminded me of something you’d see at a fish fry or maybe on a bun with tartar sauce.  Actually, this cookbook also has a recipe for tartar sauce,…

Vegan Brownies Invade My Cookie Jar

September 28, 2010

This “use up what is already in the pantry” week has already been tough.  As a self-proclaimed grocery shopping enthusiast, I can take on a Whole Foods with the fervor of most women set loose in a shoe shop.  My inner food nerd (okay, maybe it’s not so inner) is very excited about my impending meal planning,…
