Vegan Sweet and Salty Glazed Sweet Potato Fries

February 18, 2010

I first became obsessed with sweet potato fries when I was 17.  My dad took me to NYC as my high school graduation present, and we spent most of our trip looking for and eating awesome food.  I can’t even tell you the name of the restaurant, but it was in NYC I had my…

Vegan Steamed Veggie And Adzuki Bean Quinoa

February 18, 2010

I love making up big pots of things like this not only because they make awesome leftovers, but because they’re simple enough to add this or that and completely change the dish to something new the next day.  For example, last night I ate this as a simply and fresh vegan quinoa dish with just…

Vegan Cheesecake Bars

February 17, 2010

Last night I had a major craving for vegan cheesecake, but I pushed the idea aside because I knew I didn’t have the ingredients for a graham cracker crust, or a ready-made one on hand.  After mentally searching the pantry for sweet-treat ideas, it was like a light bulb moment;  make cheesecake bars with a…

Vegan Lemon Squares

February 12, 2010

Since we had company all week, I haven’t been as adventurous with my recipe creations, sticking to my stand-by favorites such as veggie stew, pasta, pizza, and fried rice.  Instead, I’ve made “fun desserts” to finish off the meals.  I actually have made these vegan lemon squares once before in my preblogging days, but with…

A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Jalapeño Bread

February 9, 2010

I think this one is my new favorite vegan bread! It’s spicy, but not so much so that it’s unenjoyable, and so soft and light.  I made this as a compliment to a pinto bean and veggie stew, but I will definitely be making it up again often for a side to everything from soups…

Vegan Coconut Cookies

February 9, 2010

Okay, so these vegan cookies aren’t exactly (at all) healthy, but since my dad is in town visiting, I thought I’d make some tasty treats.  I found the Choose Your Own Option Cookies recipe on VegWeb.com.  I was actually looking for a coconut cookie recipe when I found it, so I chose to use coconut,…

Vegan Praline Sweet Potato Mash

February 4, 2010

This is great to make as a sweet little dessert-like vegan side dish for any meal, but I also love to make it on a larger scale for holidays and family get-togethers.  It looks so pretty and delicious in a nice serving dish topped off with sparkling brown sugar and toasted pecan halves.  But last…

Smoky Vegan Red Beans & Rice

February 3, 2010

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling well so I went to VegWeb early to look for a crock pot recipe so that dinner would just be ready to plate and eat when feeding time rolled around.  I found this recipe for Smoky Vegan Red Beans & Rice and I didn’t have everything, but I happened to have…

A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Sun Dried Tomato Herb Bread

February 3, 2010

I bought a package of organic sun dried tomatoes on my last trip to Whole Foods because they were in one of those end cap extras type displays that I always end up falling for even though I have no real ingredient plans for the item.  I remembered them yesterday when I was about to…

Good Ol’ Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

February 2, 2010

Chocolate chip cookies were always my job.  When there was going to be a family get-together, I made the chocolate chip cookies.  I’ve had that back-of-the-package recipe memorized since I was like 8.  So instead of letting that used brain space go to waste, I just made the recipe I already knew vegan.  With only…
