Southwestern Vegan Mac And Teese

Southwestern Vegan Mac And Teese

Last week, on a particularly less-than-perfect day, I received a nice little package from Chicago Soy Dairy with 2 flavors of their well-known vegan cheese, Teese, and a package of my favorite vegan marshmallows, Dandies. It’s amazing what a pick-me-up getting a package can be! As soon as I saw the tube of creamy cheddar…

Our Veggie Kitchen Vegan Chickpea Alfredo

What a beautiful day! It was so lovely, we got out our bikes and went for a ride! It’s so nice to get back outside. When we got home from riding, the husband requested black bean burgers, so I got to making my go-to black bean burgers with the recipe from Veganomicon. I’d forgotten how…

Meet The Vegan Lover’s Pizza Casserole

We’ve read to our little man since days after he was born, but I remember when I couldn’t wait for the day he would sit through an entire story, sitting on the edge of his seat instead of mentally, and often physically, wondering off mid-book. I guess I got what I wished for because now…

Alicia’s Vegan Rustic Pasta

February 11, 2011

Ever since I arranged my cookbooks neatly on their little shelf at our new place, I haven’t even touched them. It’s just so unlike me to go a whole week without cracking open one of my favorite vegan cookbooks, let alone a whole month! So after catching up on some blog reading, including a few…

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…

Saucy Vegan Maple Dijon and Ume Mustard Cream

November 15, 2010

Sauce can do a lot for a meal.  I love how you can take a completely ordinary weeknight meal and make it awesome with any number of easy sauces.  That’s where The Saucy Vegetarian comes in.  It’s an entire cook(less) book of sauces!  As far as I can tell, all sauces in this book are…

Vegan Deli Cold Sesame Noodles

November 10, 2010

I’m so glad many of you are planning to try the Tempeh Pecan Salad!  I really think you’ll enjoy it.  Even if tempeh isn’t your thing, and I’m trying to imagine I don’t love it because I do, I think that recipe would be a great one to make because it has such great flavor…

Asian Fusion Vegan Hot Pot

Hey, look, I finally made it out of the Philippines!  The recipe for Hot Pot With Udon Noodles (page 82) can be found in Asian Fusion‘s Japanese section, the section I was supposed to make supposed to make sushi from before my great sushi-making curse struck once again.  According to the book, Japanese hot pots…

Vegan Enchilada Bake, Baked Ziti, And Pesto Linguine On The Cheap

October 29, 2010

I’ve been really leaning on Vegan on the Cheap lately to fill in some of my weeknight meals with more affordable dishes.  I was slow to get started, but now that I’ve cracked this cookbook I just can’t stay out of it!  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a hardcore enchilada fan, and I wasn’t sure…

Vegan On The Cheap Peanut Penne And Three Bean Loaf

After my first meal planning shopping trip, I mentioned the grocery bills hadn’t been so pretty.  Hoping to live and learn, I decided to lighten up the meal expenses by pulling out my trusty Vegan on the Cheap.  I love how this cookbook’s dishes are priced out to be under $2 per serving, and many…
