Vegan Vittles Pecan Sticky Buns

October 4, 2010
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…

Vegan Pumpkin Harvest Rice

October 1, 2010

Yesterday morning, I flipped on the news to catch the weather.  I know I can just look it up online, but it makes me smile to “catch the weather” because it was something that seemed so grown up when I was a child.  My grandma would always say things like, “Oh shoot, I was hoping…

The Big Vegan Salad

September 29, 2010

I don’t know if you watched Seinfeld, I was just a kid myself when they were actually airing new episodes, but they had this running joke about “the big salad”.  If it was “the big salad”, it totally counted as a meal.  I really have no idea what was in their pretend salad, but I’m…

Making Teese Vegan Pizza With A Friend

September 27, 2010

I finally got around to trying the “new” Teese!  This past weekend, I traded a little vegan pizza-making lesson for a photography lesson with my friend, Jameson (you may remember him from his famous Vegan Taco Soup Recipe).  I highly recommend trading free knowledge with your friends; it’s like playing school, but grown up and…

Vegan Salt And Pepper Pumpkin Seeds

September 24, 2010

Since it’s officially fall, I’m now allowed to post all things pumpkin without further explanation!  When I sawed open my pumpkin for Lick It’s Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream, I also cleaned the seeds and roasted them for one of my favorite fall snacks- pumpkin seeds!  Like popcorn, it can be a lot of fun to play with…

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

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…

Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream

September 19, 2010

The first official day of fall may be a few days away, but I would hate to leave you unprepared!  You may have noticed I’m a bit of an autumn enthusiast, and growing up, one of my many favorite things about the season was the local ice cream shop’s homemade pumpkin ice cream.  My mom…

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Quinoa Casserole

September 17, 2010

A casserole can be a beautiful thing.  You take what’s in the refrigerator or pantry, get a little creative, and end up with a full meal baked into a single dish.  Plus, casserole leftovers are always the best!  Once all those flavors get a chance to combine, it’s perfection.  This vegan casserole has a little of…
