I Eat Vegan Books: Animal Ingredients A To Z by The EG Smith Collective

January 25, 2010

I wanted to share this really useful little vegan book with those of you who don’t already own a copy.  Animal Ingredients is such a useful tool to have handy for both new vegans and seasoned vegans alike.  This book not only contains a list of animal derived ingredients, including those you didn’t even realize…

Vegan (Brown) Rice Crispy Treats

January 24, 2010

This is a super quick and simple vegan dessert or snack to make that pleases most anyone.  Since it has only a few ingredients, these treats are great to take to a potluck or picnic when you don’t have a lot of time or money to create a dish.  Also, since Ricemellow Marshmallow Creme uses…

A Little Vegan Bread Blabber

January 24, 2010

Lately, I’ve really been loving creating my own vegan bread recipes for my bread machine because I rarely find a recipe I like without modifications anyway, so why not?  I decided to make all of our own bread awhile back after I got sick of reading the 700 ingredients on the back of every bread…

Vegan Crock Pot Black Bean Soup

January 24, 2010

I soaked some black beans overnight, not quite sure what I was going to make with them.  When I got up this morning, I observed the black pot of soaked bean water, and decided to create some sort of vegan soup or stew to save myself the effort of finding and recreating a recipe (and…

Simply Organic Spice Rack

January 22, 2010

Hi.  My name is Keri, and I’m a vegan food nerd.  You’d think I got a new car or something judging by how excited I am over my new spice rack stocked with all of my favorite organic spices!!  (For the record, I would be less excited over a new car than a new spice…

Maddison Avenue Vegan Soy Candle Love

January 22, 2010

For those rare moments when my house doesn’t smell like delicious food anyway (because I’m a cookoholic),  I’m always on the look out for a good pure vegan soy candle.  Okay, I really do just love (vegan) candles.  There’s something cozy and warm about a lit candle or two in the dim evening light, perfect…

I Eat Vegan Books: The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone

January 20, 2010

Last weekend I picked up The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.  While I am already vegan, I love to continuously learn new information, tricks, methods, recipes, and just let myself become inspired in new ways.  I will also mention as a preteen, Alicia Silverstone was like my hero.  I thought she was the most beautiful,…

Vegan Hearty Lentil Stew

January 19, 2010

When I was planning tonight’s dinner I knew exactly what I had on hand and it just seemed like one of those days where I was missing some vital ingredient from every recipe I wanted to try.  I decided to take the “throw what you have in a crock pot and call it vegan stew…

Annie Chun’s Vegan Noodle Bowls

January 18, 2010

I know a lot of you are on the go and need to have a few convenience meals on hand just in case you’re running late for work or busy doing a million other things, and need a quick meal that’s one step and chow.  For days like that, I completely adore Annie Chun’s bowls. …

Silk Vegan Creamer

January 18, 2010

I’m actually trying to kick the coffee habit after admitting I have a severe addiction to caffeine.  (I’m talking migraines and crappy mood swings when I missed my daily dose!)  But I do still enjoy a hot cup of coffee every now and then.  When I made the switch from vegetarian to vegan I was…
