A Vegan With A Bread Machine: “Cheddar” Herb Bread

March 19, 2010

Since I have a big bag of Daiya cheddar shreds living in my freezer, I’ve been thinking of countless ways to use them.  I was curious how these shreds would work in a vegan bread, hoping it would give the loaf that “cheesy” flavor.  The result is a super delicious, moist bread.  It isn’t cheesy…

A Saint Patrick’s Day Vegan Feast

March 17, 2010

I should warn you, if you’re anti-carbs you should probably stop reading this post now.  You’ll probably gain weight just from reading this (kidding, kidding)!  I’m not sure that there was really much Irish about this vegan feast other than it including potatoes, bread, and “meat”.  I meant to include some greens, but while I…

Vegan Rice Corn Chowder And Teriyaki Stir-Fry

March 16, 2010

Dinner tonight was absolutely delicious!  Okay, I bet I say delicious in every single post, but I don’t like to eat (or post about) anything that I don’t absolutely love!  I’ll get to the main event (dinner) in a minute, but first I’m going to post my lunch.  I had a really tasty and filling…

Vegan Loaded Potatoes

March 15, 2010

Potatoes, that is! Tonight, we had loaded potatoes for dinner, and oh my goodness they were good.  Potatoes are fabulous as they are, but to turn a potato into a whole meal?  Now that’s a thing of beauty!  (Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic over this potato stuff, but yum.) First, I baked organic…

Hummus Burritos, Vegan Fried Rice, And More

March 15, 2010

I wish that I could say that it was an eventful weekend, but it really wasn’t.  The cold rain kept us inside most of the time (and I could really use some Vitamin D, Mr. Sunshine!).  On Friday we took a little trip to Trader Joe’s (I haven’t been there in awhile) to get our…

Vegan Pizza With Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese

March 8, 2010

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of an awesome vegan pizza.  I love to try out different vegan cheeses to see if one reigns supreme over all others when it comes to the pie.  So far, I’ve used Chicago Soy Dairy Teese, Daiya Shreds, and just last night, Follow Your Heart.  Follow Your…

A Vegan Birthday Weekend

March 7, 2010

I haven’t gotten a chance to blog for a couple of days, but it has been an amazing weekend!  Our little boy turned two on Thursday, so we took him out for lunch and a little shopping to celebrate!  The night before, I did some research on vegan dining in chain restaurants.  We don’t live…

Dixie’s Vegan Peanut Butter Birthday Bones

March 3, 2010

Today is our dog Dixie’s 5th birthday!  To celebrate, I always make her special dog treats.  Actually, Dixie’s homemade vegan dog treats became kind of famous around here.  As simple as they are to make, family members request them for their dogs for holidays, people at my old office would buy them by the container,…

Happy Herbivore Vegan Mac N’ Cheese

March 1, 2010

Tonight I was feeling like making a vegan pasta recipe from one of my favorite blogs, so I went browsing.  When I came across Happy Herbivore’s Soy-Free Vegan Mac N’ Cheese recipe, I was sold.  I’ve only made vegan baked-style macaroni and cheese, never one with a cheese sauce, so I was excited to give…

Vegan Pan-Fried Potato Coins

February 25, 2010

Nearly everyone loves the glorious potato, and there are a ton of ways to prepare them, most of which are fabulous.  I had a few potatoes in the pantry that really needed to be used, so tonight I made pan-fried potatoes with red pepper, onion, and garlic.  It’s nothing fancy, but definitely warm and delicious. …
