Oh, The Trees I Ate: November 2010

December 1, 2010

With November, ends my first Vegan MoFo.  It went so fast!  It’s been a great experience and I’ve met new people, found new blogs to read.  There were so many delicious vegan recipes shared, it would take the entire year to even make the best of them, but here are my favorite eats from the…

A Second Vegan Thanksgiving

November 29, 2010

Okay, I haven’t actually posted about the first yet, but here comes the second.  Thursday I prepared a nice little vegan Thanksgiving at our home.  Saturday, however, my we visited my mom’s for a family-style Thanksgiving feast.  I was so excited to visit, I haven’t seen my family in a couple of months, and I…

Happy Vegan Thanksgiving!

November 25, 2010

May your day be filled with loving friends and family, plentiful food and beverage, and thoughtful conversation and laughter.  I hope you take the time to remember what you’re thankful for, because as many times as we say it this season, we are still forgetting to actually do it.  Observe a forgotten tradition.  Start a…

The Joy Of Vegan Lemon Bars

The holidays are the perfect time to bring out The Joy of Vegan Baking! It’s filled with treat recipes all of your friends and family, vegan or not, will love.  These lemon bars (page 126)  tend to get people especially nostalgic, myself included.  We had a huge assortment of cookies and bars on the Christmas…

Vegan Yum Yum Stuffed Delicata Squash

November 23, 2010

When I made my Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks list, I realized I hadn’t broken out the Vegan Yum Yum in awhile.  I flipped through the book and planned several dishes for the week, but most of them were skipped in an effort to find effortless dishes to avoid standing in the kitchen for long while…

More Vegan Sauciness

November 23, 2010

Last week, I made quite a collection of sauces from The Saucy Vegetarian, and since I didn’t blog about all of them, I thought I’d mention the other few.  The best sauce was probably the Sweet n’ Smoky Vinaigrette (page 98), which I put on vegan meatball subs with Teese cheese sauce and sauteed mushrooms…

Amy’s Vegan Pot Pie

November 22, 2010

I’m still not feeling well today, and standing in the kitchen long enough to prepare a whole meal still feels exhausting, but we have to eat!  And I hate having nothing to post about!  I don’t think I’ve felt unwell enough to keep me out of the kitchen since I’ve started blogging, so it’s a…

Great Good Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

November 19, 2010

It’s Friday!  Let’s celebrate with a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe!  Flipping through the pages of More Great Good Dairy-Free Desserts Naturally, I came to the chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I think every dessert cookbook is pretty much required to have a chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I always shun them, continuing to make the…
