My Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks

November 18, 2010

There are so many amazing vegan cookbooks out there.  Your shelves are probably already so jammed with unturned pages of recipes that every time you read about a new one your mind just wanders back to that unloved shelf.  I wish I could say I felt the same way, or maybe I don’t, but I…

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Perhaps I enjoyed the vibrancy of Asian Fusion‘s dishes or perhaps I’m just trying to compensate for these solid grey clouds that have taken residence over our home, but even when moving to another cookbook, I chose colorful.  It certainly isn’t primavera here, but I couldn’t help but be drawn to the simplicity of Quinoa…

Vegan Vittles Pot Roast

November 3, 2010

Thought I would be burnt out on Vegan Vittles after that week of Vittles madness?  Never!  I made this Pot Roast (page 156) as a regular week-night family meal, but it was so amazing that I immediately decided it needed an upgrade to main dish for one of my family’s vegan holiday meals.  It isn’t…

Unforgotten Vegan Cookbook Recipe Reviews

October 13, 2010

Believe it or not, sometimes I make a new recipe, take photos… and then don’t post about it.  Normally I just let them slide, but the past week or two I’ve collected a few meals I really enjoyed and still want to share, so I’ll just put them together in one little recap post!  First…

Gooda Uncheese And Vegan Vittles Maple Walnut Granola

Gooda Uncheese And Vegan Vittles Maple Walnut Granola

One thing I’d never never really gotten into until I started reading blogs?  Granola.  Outside of our little blogging community, I’ve never really heard granola painted in a positive light.  It’s generally classified as a hippie health food, even though I know for a fact there are as many ways to make it unhealthy as…

Raw For Dessert One Bowl Brownies And Vegan Vittles Stroganoff

October 6, 2010

Don’t get me wrong, my mom could bake.  She worked in the same bakery I did, long before I worked there, and the holiday season meant it was time to make 25 different kinds of cookies at her house.  But when it came to dinners, we had that box with the smiling hand on it…

Vegan Vittles Muffins That Taste Like Donuts And Tomato Bread Soup

October 6, 2010

Muffins that taste like doughnuts?  What will they think of next? Ice cream that tastes like cookie dough?  Oh, they have that, you say?  Huh.  And one last question.  Do you write doughnuts or donuts?  Because something in me really wants to write doughnuts even though I’m fairly certain both are widely accepted.  When I…

Vegan Vittles Barbecue-Style Braised Short “Ribs”

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

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…
