Vegan Christmas Menu

November 30, 2010

Every year, my grandma pays for the ingredients to whip up a family Christmas feast, and I do the actual whipping up.  Preparing a huge meal without the grocery bill?  I’ll take it!  Since she likes to know her grocery list and budget early, I usually have to pick out the vegan Christmas menu before…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Vegan Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Vegan Sweet Potato Quesadillas

If you’re looking for something other than the usual sandwich or salad to make for a meal in a hurry, break out your panini press or grill pan and give these quesadillas a try!  They aren’t your average quesadillas because rather than being held together by packaged vegan cheese, these are stuffed with whipped sweet…

Vegan Deli Tempeh Pecan Salad

Vegan Deli Tempeh Pecan Salad

When I decided on Vegan Deli‘s Tempeh Pecan Salad (page 80) for a weekend lunch, I thought it would be tasty, but I can’t say I was expecting anything special.  The recipe only has 6 ingredients, and no deli salad could be better than Awesome Eggless Salad!  After a no-effort preparation and a couple hours…
