The 4 Ingredient Vegan Mediterranean Penne, Roasted Green Beans, And Bliss Balls

August 29, 2010

As you may have guessed, The 4 Ingredient Vegan is filled with vegan recipes that can be made with just four ingredients.  The only exceptions to the rule are water, salt, pepper, and oil or margarine, which don’t count towards the four ingredients, and the occasional optional or suggested ingredient.  These recipes sometimes utilize canned, premade,…

Vegan Twice-Baked Spaghetti, Cupcakes, Cocktail Weenies, And Spinakopizza

I took advantage of the weekend to make a few test recipes from Hearty Vegan, so since I can’t share recipes due to the binding contracts of cross-my-heart and pinky swear, let’s just call this an inspirational post.  You know, inspiring you to get in the kitchen.  Hey, at least I tried to put a…

Vegan Mini Polenta Pizzas, Udon, And Fresh Fig Bars

I was planning on blogging about all of this last night after I put my little man to bed, but it’s all a blur.  I definitely don’t remember falling asleep, but next thing I knew I was waking up, grabbing for a clock.  Eleven o’clock?!  Dang it!  It was too late to gather enough brain…

Moroccan-Inspired Lentil Soup And Three-Grain Bread On The Cheap

I should call this post my ode to the slow-cooker, because how wonderful is it to prepare dinner in the morning and have no more to prepare in the evening than getting out bowls and spoons?!  We had a lot planned tonight, so knowing we were guaranteed a meal without a mad-dash through the kitchen,…

Vegan Comfort Loaf With Mushroom Gravy On The Cheap

August 23, 2010

Tonight’s post will be short because I’ve got my mind on curling up with a book, but I just had to share my cozy dinner.  I can’t remember the last time food actually made me feel warm and fuzzy, but Vegan on the Cheap‘s Comfort Loaf (page 154) did just that.  And as if the…

Vegan Pasta, Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie, And No-Bake Cookies On The Cheap

As you may remember, I was very excited to get started when I purchased Vegan on the Cheap.  But after coming up short on ingredients a few times, it got pushed aside and spent a few weeks buried in my cookbook collection.  When I pulled it from the pile last night, I decided I was…

Homemade Vegan Lemon Ice Cream And When Corn Isn’t Vegan

Homemade Vegan Lemon Ice Cream And When Corn Isn’t Vegan

I was putting an ice cream maker on my list of kitchen appliances I need, and I use the word need loosely here, when I suddenly remembered something.  Didn’t we get some sort of ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer for our wedding?!  Sure enough, after a little digging, I pulled out…

Speed Vegan Miso Mashed Potatoes, Fried Jalapeños, And Braised Tofu

August 18, 2010

Last night, I was definitely running late for a class I’m taking through a local university, and all I could get out for dinner was a cucumber salad and miso mashed potatoes, two recipes from Speed Vegan.  The funny thing is, I actually opted to use the time I didn’t have to eat, to take…

Speed Vegan Linguine With Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce And Balsamic Mushrooms

August 17, 2010

Tonight’s dinner was seriously out of this world amazing.  I once again cracked open Speed Vegan to make Linguine with Sun-dried Tomato Sauce.  To accompany the vegan pasta I decided on the Balsamic Mushrooms, partly because they sounded delicious and partly because I had mushrooms. The flavors of olive oil, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes all…

A Vegan Breakfast Sandwich, Cinnamon Bread, And Corn Dip

Whoops!  I don’t know how it happened, but one second I was putting my little man to bed, and the next I was waking up in my bed, grabbing for the clock in the darkness.  I hate that feeling! When you wake up and you’re like, “Wait. Where am I?  Is it day or night?!”…
