Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

October 5, 2010
Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

I could sum it all up in “this is one amazing recipe”, but that would be a mighty short blog post.  Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs” (page 154) are so delicious, I’d serve them to my non-vegan friends and family in a heartbeat.  And I just don’t think I could say that about many…

Vegan Vittles Stick-To-Your-Ribs Chili

Vegan Vittles Stick-To-Your-Ribs Chili

It’s autumn and we all know what that means- chili season!  As a kid, chili really grossed me out.  I know, gasp, but there were always those big floppy skinless tomato slices hanging out in there, not to mention celery, my childhood arch nemesis.  My mom would spend all day making it, and I’d be…

Vegan Vittles Pecan Sticky Buns

Let’s start Monday off with something warm, gooey, and sweet!  These Pecan Sticky Buns (page 68) are from my new favorite cookbook, Vegan Vittles, another from Book Publishing Company.  I’ve been cooking through it lately and every single recipe is nothing short of amazing.  I’ve decided Jo Stepaniak is my vegan cookbook hero!  She writes recipes…

Chicago Diner Vegan Cutlets

September 29, 2010

Save a fish; fry a tofu!  Okay, that was corny… but do it anyway.  The Chicago Diner Cookbook calls these “Diner Cutlets” (page 101), but they actually reminded me of something you’d see at a fish fry or maybe on a bun with tartar sauce.  Actually, this cookbook also has a recipe for tartar sauce,…

Vegan Brownies Invade My Cookie Jar

September 28, 2010

This “use up what is already in the pantry” week has already been tough.  As a self-proclaimed grocery shopping enthusiast, I can take on a Whole Foods with the fervor of most women set loose in a shoe shop.  My inner food nerd (okay, maybe it’s not so inner) is very excited about my impending meal planning,…

Pumpkin Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

September 27, 2010

I hope you didn’t think I was kidding about the “all-things pumpkin” stuff.  It’s fall and I’m obsessed, but I’m excited to see many of you are also going pumpkin-crazy!  To keep with the trend, I made a batch of Sell Your Soul Pumpkin Cookies (page 51) from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  Because…

Vegan Chili Cheese Fries And Farro With Butternut Squash

Vegan Chili Cheese Fries And Farro With Butternut Squash

To me, chili cheese fries should be a “need I say more” sort of thing, but maybe you didn’t have a “cheese fries” stage in your younger years like I did.  Actually, these fries are drizzled with two different vegan cheese recipes: the first, a yellow cheese sauce recipe from Post Punk Kitchen, and the…

Chicago Diner Vegan Seitan Pot Pie

September 21, 2010

I couldn’t even tell you the last time I ate pot pie.  It was definitely before college.  It isn’t that I don’t like pot pie, I love it, but making it myself seemed too time-consuming, and those freezer section pot pies are just caloric death traps.  When you check the back of the box you’re…

Lick It Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Vegan Ice Cream

While I don’t know how anyone could not love pumpkin ice cream, I wanted to give you another option for starting your own personal vegan ice cream buffet.  This chocolate chip cookie dough vegan ice cream recipe (page 14) is another from Lick It, and I just can’t say enough great things about this vegan ice…

Chicago Diner Vegan Cream Of Broccoli Soup And Cornbread Muffins

Chicago Diner Vegan Cream Of Broccoli Soup And Cornbread Muffins

When I ate at The Chicago Diner for the first time, I was so excited about their vegan food I wanted all things The Chicago Diner: the t-shirts, the packaged treats, the cookbook.  I didn’t end up getting any of those things because it was our first stop in the city and we thought we’d…
