BBQ Eggplant Sandwiches And ABC Vegan Cookies

September 15, 2010

My panini press has been getting a lot of lovin’ lately, like this barbecue grilled eggplant sandwich with grilled onions and spinach on whole wheat vegan bread.  I guess that means my cast iron grill pan is getting a lot of love as well!  I served our barbecue eggplant sandwiches with steamed acorn squash, one…

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…

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…

Vegan Mini Polenta Pizzas, Udon, And Fresh Fig Bars

I was planning on blogging about all of this last night after I put my little man to bed, but it’s all a blur.  I definitely don’t remember falling asleep, but next thing I knew I was waking up, grabbing for a clock.  Eleven o’clock?!  Dang it!  It was too late to gather enough brain…

Vegan Pasta, Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie, And No-Bake Cookies On The Cheap

Vegan Pasta, Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie, And No-Bake Cookies On The Cheap

As you may remember, I was very excited to get started when I purchased Vegan on the Cheap.  But after coming up short on ingredients a few times, it got pushed aside and spent a few weeks buried in my cookbook collection.  When I pulled it from the pile last night, I decided I was…

Vegan Creme De Menthe Bars, Chia, And Ancho Vinaigrette

August 5, 2010

Last night I stayed up a little too late to make Averie of Love Veggies and Yoga’s Vegan Creme de Menthe Bars.  Actually, I was already up too late, and the bars didn’t take very long to make at all.  I didn’t have creme de menthe, so as Averie suggested, I used a tablespoon mint…

Vegan Summer Weekend – Chili Dogs, Burgers, And More

Aside from a Saturday migraine, we had a great summer weekend!  We spent the afternoons in the in-laws’ pool, the evenings bike riding, and post-toddler bed time working on I Eat Trees, still slightly pink from the sun.  You might notice some things out of place and some things missing, but don’t worry, we’re just…

Happy Birthday To Me, Vegan-Style

July 18, 2010

This post title probably couldn’t be more narcissistic, but I’m alright with that.  Yesterday, my family had a little birthday party for me and it was so much fun.  First was the food.  My mom made vegan black bean burgers from Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, cranberry broccoli slaw, baked beans, corn on the cob, plus…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillow Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

June 24, 2010

Remember a long time ago I had a dream?  Well, I didn’t forget about it.  Be my child a hoodlum, my career path come to a dead halt, but gosh darn it, I’m making all of those cookies!  No, I’m just kidding.  I don’t have a career path.  Anyway, I think these bad boys may…
