Vegan Enchilada Bake, Baked Ziti, And Pesto Linguine On The Cheap

October 29, 2010

I’ve been really leaning on Vegan on the Cheap lately to fill in some of my weeknight meals with more affordable dishes.  I was slow to get started, but now that I’ve cracked this cookbook I just can’t stay out of it!  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a hardcore enchilada fan, and I wasn’t sure…

Sublime Vegan Picatta

October 27, 2010

When I sat down to plan from The Sublime Restaurant Cookbook, I honestly didn’t think I’d be raving about it as much as I am.  Just judging by the recipe titles and photos, I was mentally whining that they seemed pricey and a lot of work for a small amount of food.  But  I was…

Book Publishing Company’s Luscious Vegan Desserts campaign is coming to an end, but there’s still enough time for me to get in another recipe or two!  There’s also still time left for entering to win one of their fabulous vegan cookbooks, so hop on over to their site to enter.  In celebration of vegan dessert…

Sublime Grilled Vegan Seitan Steak

“Do you need this junk in the Vita-Mix?” “I have no idea what you’re talking about.” “In the Vita-Mix. I don’t know what it is.” “Son of a biscuit!” How often do you prepare something to accompany a dish and completely forget until you (or your husband) finds it after the meal is already over? …

Vegan Brunch Pumpkin French Toast

As I stood on my porch, hovering over breakfast with a camera rather than a fork, my neighbor walked out to hang up her laundry.  It wasn’t the first time I’ve been “caught” playing food paparazzi, neighbors on either side quite frequently witness me snapping away towards bowls of pasta or loaves of bread, but…

Sublime Seven-Layer Vegan Pizza

October 25, 2010

Everyone most likely knows what I’m talking about when I mention 7-layer dip, but have you ever translated into pizza?!  I have a confession to go with this amazing recipe from The Sublime Restaurant Cookbook.  When I first came to the 7-Layer Vegan Pizza recipe (page 50), I had one of those, “Why didn’t I…

Vegan On The Cheap Peanut Penne And Three Bean Loaf

After my first meal planning shopping trip, I mentioned the grocery bills hadn’t been so pretty.  Hoping to live and learn, I decided to lighten up the meal expenses by pulling out my trusty Vegan on the Cheap.  I love how this cookbook’s dishes are priced out to be under $2 per serving, and many…

Local Bounty Vegan Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties

October 20, 2010

Once again, Local Bounty demonstrates seasonal goodness with these autumn-worthy Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties (page 126). Acorn squash is a favorite because most people have tried it, or at least heard of it, and many people are comfortable grabbing it from the market without panicking over what to do with it.  It’s delicious…

Local Bounty Vegan Pasta With Collard Greens

October 19, 2010

It’s almost too simple to post… almost.  Most of us have made this dish.  The afternoon slipped away, you had to go pick the kids up from school unexpectedly or take the spare set of keys to your husband because he locked his in the car (that one is me), and by the time you…

Vegan Peanut Butter And Mexican Snickerdoodle Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

October 19, 2010

Two more down… a lot to go… Last week, I made two more vegan cookie recipes from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar to share with my little class.  I chose to make Peanut Butter Crisscrosses (page 81) first, because I thought a simple peanut butter cookie would be well-received, and I wanted to have…
