Alive in 5 Raw Mind-Blowing Vegan Dressing

After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr, I became more enthusiastic about raw foods. And while I know how to make the raw food basics, I wanted to get myself into a raw food cookbook or two to see what those creative raw food authors had come up with. Now, my first instinct was…

Vegan Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Pecan Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes

December 9, 2010

Christmas is creeping up quickly, so I wanted to share a few of the simplest recipes from my vegan Christmas menu.  When it comes to the cranberry sauce, many people love the orange cranberry flavor combination, and that’s what I made last year for the masses, but I much prefer the plain cranberry, sugar, water…

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…

The Big Vegan Salad

September 29, 2010

I don’t know if you watched Seinfeld, I was just a kid myself when they were actually airing new episodes, but they had this running joke about “the big salad”.  If it was “the big salad”, it totally counted as a meal.  I really have no idea what was in their pretend salad, but I’m…

Vegan Speed Leek And Cauliflower Soup And Nutty Chocolate Balls

August 15, 2010

Before I get to that Speed Vegan recipe I’ve been promising you, I want to wish my mom a very Happy 44th Birthday!! Don’t freak out on me for posting your age, Mom.  You’re still young and beautiful! I have have to admit, I was a little excited to open Speed Vegan this morning.  I can have a…

Vegan Creme De Menthe Bars, Chia, And Ancho Vinaigrette

August 5, 2010

Last night I stayed up a little too late to make Averie of Love Veggies and Yoga’s Vegan Creme de Menthe Bars.  Actually, I was already up too late, and the bars didn’t take very long to make at all.  I didn’t have creme de menthe, so as Averie suggested, I used a tablespoon mint…

Awesome Cucumber Pepper Salad And Vegan French Toast

July 23, 2010

I’ve been having some pretty great kitchen luck lately.  You know when you’re just on a roll and everything you make is gold?  Yeah, that good. I’m so in love with maple dijon baked tofu that I made it again yesterday.  For some reason, baked tofu and brown rice is my biggest craving.  I’ll just…

Happy Birthday To Me, Vegan-Style

July 18, 2010

This post title probably couldn’t be more narcissistic, but I’m alright with that.  Yesterday, my family had a little birthday party for me and it was so much fun.  First was the food.  My mom made vegan black bean burgers from Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, cranberry broccoli slaw, baked beans, corn on the cob, plus…

Happy Herbivore’s Vegan Rice Pudding

June 30, 2010

Happy last day of June!  That means my birthday is in 18 days (July 18th)!  I’m trying really hard to get psyched about it this year, simply because I miss birthdays being fun.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled to have lived another year, but ever since 21 it’s just felt like another day.  I…

Vegan Portobello Steak Wraps

May 27, 2010

It’s been a really long day and the night just got away from me.  I wanted to post though, because I know tomorrow will be total baking madness.  I needed to use the leftovers and last of the produce in the refrigerator so there would be room for all the wedding shower goodies on Saturday. …
