Your Thoughts Thursday: Mid Vegan MoFo

November 18, 2010

I was planning to go back to my usual topics for this YTT, but since everyone might be a little too exhausted from all that cooking, baking, and creating to think too hard, I’ve decided to go with something a little more MoFo.  This is my first Vegan MoFo and I’ve loved scrolling through all…

Vegan Heavenly Horseradish Sauce

November 17, 2010

If it’s vegan and has horseradish in it, sign me up!  When my eye catches the word “horseradish” in a recipe title, it’s as good as made in my kitchen.  Well, I guess I’m not so certain about horseradish desserts, but luckily I haven’t come across any of those yet.  Horseradish cupcakes anyone?  Hey, I’m…

Vegan Garbanzo And Carrot Sauce

November 17, 2010

It’s true we eat with our eyes, and The Saucy Vegetarian‘s Garbanzo and Carrot Sauce (page 95) really isn’t the prettiest sauce I’ve seen.  When I served it to the husband, I’m fairly certain he looked at me like, “Did you just serve me a giant blob of mustard over brown rice and broccoli?”  While it…

Great Good Vegan New Orleans Bread Pudding

November 16, 2010

I know it’s Tuesday, but it really feels like Monday #2 over here.  I’m sure learning to go to bed earlier would make my mornings more pleasant, but for now I’ll just have to perk up with a cup of coffee and a nice bowl of warm bread pudding.  Mmm.. bread pudding… the breakfast of…

Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Nothing says holidays like a bag of candy canes and a hammer, does it?  Sure, peppermint pieces can be found, but I can’t think of any reason to go looking for them when I have a perfectly good excuse to use a hammer to break things!  When I was younger, we stalked the ice cream…

The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook Giveaway

November 14, 2010

**Giveaway Closed** Congratulations to our winner, Lacey, who said, “I went ahead and blogged and tweeted about this. I adore making simple nut cheeses that are based on macadamia nuts and raw zucchini, plus a little water, lemon juice, garlic, whole grain mustard and s&p. Homemade parma is awesome too.”  I’ll be contacting you for…

Vegan Carrot Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

Hold the phones! This is important news!  I have a new favorite vegan cookie recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  Phew, I know you were on the edge of your seat.  Carrot Raisin Spice Chewies (page 37) with lemon glaze are now the official I Eat Trees cookie.  Well, I Eat Trees doesn’t…

Eat, Drink, And Be Vegan Burgers And Potato Squashers

November 13, 2010

I should start off by saying, these Spicoli Burgers (page 145) from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan are hands down the best vegan burgers I have ever made.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore Veganomicon‘s Black Bean Burgers, but these are just extraordinary!  The Spicoli Burgers are rice and hemp seed based burgers, with red…

Adopt A Turkey And Hug A Vegan

November 13, 2010

As a vegan in an entirely vegan household, you may be surprised to hear I not only spent money on a turkey, but that turkey is going to be right in the center of my dining room table come Thanksgiving.  Okay, not the turkey per se, but a photo of the turkey.  I’m sure if…

Eat, Drink, And Be Vegan Jumble-aya

November 12, 2010

It’s simply been too long since I’ve cracked open my copy of Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.  I don’t know how that pretty spring green book got pushed to the bottom of the pile, but it certainly doesn’t belong there!  When I pulled it out this week, I was doing my weekly meal planning, looking…
