Samoas Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar And Chard Frittata Brunch

Samoas Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar And Chard Frittata Brunch

I know yesterday we covered Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s awesomeness, but her most underrated work is definitely Vegan Brunch.  How do I know that?  Well, I actually purchased the book after she tweeted it was one of her favorites, but her lowest-selling on Amazon.   After making her recipe for Swiss Chard Frittata (page 35), I definitely…

Snickerdoodle Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

September 12, 2010

Little man and I had a wonderful day today shopping with my dad.  First, we stopped at Costco to pick up some essentials like quinoa, olive oil, agave, and such.  They have quite a few great organic finds and Dad even found organic cotton pajamas for the little guy.  After Costco, we went over to…

Noodle Soup And Vegan Pizza

I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited to see summer fade into fall.  And it seems like it’s happening so quickly!  This weekend we were visiting my family and I didn’t pack anything even remotely warm.  After a few chilling outings, I ended up at the store purchasing 3 sweatshirts- one men’s, one…

Vegan Utopia Sticky Toffee Pudding

We got home too late tonight to prepare much of a dinner.  I just tossed together whole wheat rotini, marinara, and cooked navy beans, all leftover ingredients from previous meals, and topped off with homemade vegan parmesan . So all I really have for you tonight is another vegan dessert recipe from Sweet Utopia, but…

Utopia Vegan Chocolate Cake, Party Food, And Veganomicon Cutlets

September 5, 2010

It isn’t a birthday celebration without cake, and this weekend we celebrated a few family birthdays: my mom’s 44th, her boyfriend’s 46th, and the big 4-0 for my beloved uncle.  My little guy turned 2.5, and I know some of you probably think that isn’t a real birthday… But what I’m getting at is, I…

Vegan Temptuccino, Irish Nachos, And Take-Out-Less Noodles

Last week, I won a giveaway for a Tempt prize package over at Love Veggies and Yoga, and was excited my prize arrived so quickly.  I scored 3 cartons of Tempt hemp milk, a container of their high protein powder, 2 vouchers for a pint of ice cream, a hemp tote bag, and a hemp…

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…

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…
