Pumpkin Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

September 27, 2010

I hope you didn’t think I was kidding about the “all-things pumpkin” stuff.  It’s fall and I’m obsessed, but I’m excited to see many of you are also going pumpkin-crazy!  To keep with the trend, I made a batch of Sell Your Soul Pumpkin Cookies (page 51) from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  Because…

Vegan Chili Cheese Fries And Farro With Butternut Squash

To me, chili cheese fries should be a “need I say more” sort of thing, but maybe you didn’t have a “cheese fries” stage in your younger years like I did.  Actually, these fries are drizzled with two different vegan cheese recipes: the first, a yellow cheese sauce recipe from Post Punk Kitchen, and the…

Chicago Diner Vegan Seitan Pot Pie

September 21, 2010

I couldn’t even tell you the last time I ate pot pie.  It was definitely before college.  It isn’t that I don’t like pot pie, I love it, but making it myself seemed too time-consuming, and those freezer section pot pies are just caloric death traps.  When you check the back of the box you’re…

While I don’t know how anyone could not love pumpkin ice cream, I wanted to give you another option for starting your own personal vegan ice cream buffet.  This chocolate chip cookie dough vegan ice cream recipe (page 14) is another from Lick It, and I just can’t say enough great things about this vegan ice…

Chicago Diner Vegan Cream Of Broccoli Soup And Cornbread Muffins

When I ate at The Chicago Diner for the first time, I was so excited about their vegan food I wanted all things The Chicago Diner: the t-shirts, the packaged treats, the cookbook.  I didn’t end up getting any of those things because it was our first stop in the city and we thought we’d…

Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream

September 19, 2010

The first official day of fall may be a few days away, but I would hate to leave you unprepared!  You may have noticed I’m a bit of an autumn enthusiast, and growing up, one of my many favorite things about the season was the local ice cream shop’s homemade pumpkin ice cream.  My mom…

Samoas Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar And Chard Frittata Brunch

I know yesterday we covered Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s awesomeness, but her most underrated work is definitely Vegan Brunch.  How do I know that?  Well, I actually purchased the book after she tweeted it was one of her favorites, but her lowest-selling on Amazon.   After making her recipe for Swiss Chard Frittata (page 35), I definitely…

Snickerdoodle Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

September 12, 2010

Little man and I had a wonderful day today shopping with my dad.  First, we stopped at Costco to pick up some essentials like quinoa, olive oil, agave, and such.  They have quite a few great organic finds and Dad even found organic cotton pajamas for the little guy.  After Costco, we went over to…

Vegan Utopia Sticky Toffee Pudding

We got home too late tonight to prepare much of a dinner.  I just tossed together whole wheat rotini, marinara, and cooked navy beans, all leftover ingredients from previous meals, and topped off with homemade vegan parmesan . So all I really have for you tonight is another vegan dessert recipe from Sweet Utopia, but…

Utopia Vegan Chocolate Cake, Party Food, And Veganomicon Cutlets

September 5, 2010

It isn’t a birthday celebration without cake, and this weekend we celebrated a few family birthdays: my mom’s 44th, her boyfriend’s 46th, and the big 4-0 for my beloved uncle.  My little guy turned 2.5, and I know some of you probably think that isn’t a real birthday… But what I’m getting at is, I…
