Hollywood Bowl Picnic!

Hollywood Bowl Picnic!

I really, really, really love the Hollywood Bowl.  I’m ashamed to say that the first few years Ryan and I lived in LA we never went to the Bowl.  We were, of course, kicking ourselves when we finally did go and saw what we’d been missing.  What could make for a better summer night than [...]

Corn & Edamame Sesame Salad

Corn & Edamame Sesame Salad

Now for the best part of going to The Hollywood Bowl – the food!  It’s been a while since we’ve entertained or since I’ve cooked real food, so I was excited to try some new recipes.  I looked through Veganomicon because I hadn’t done that in a while, and tried to find some things that [...]

Tempeh Pate

Tempeh Pate

The next dish that I made for our Hollywood Bowl Picnic was the tempeh pate from the Native Foods Cookbook.  This is one of my favorite recipes, and I can’t even count how many times I’ve made this.  We’ve eaten it in Palm Springs wraps (Ryan’s favorite), I’ve baked it in puff pastry, served it [...]

Tomato-Zucchini Fritters with Cashew-Cucumber Dip

Tomato-Zucchini Fritters with Cashew-Cucumber Dip

This was the final savory dish for our Hollywood Bowl picnic.  Both recipes are from Veganomicon, and the technical (but too long for a blog post title) names of both are Greek-Style Tomato-Zucchini Fritters with Fresh Herbs and Mediterranean-Style Cashew-Cucumber Dip.  That’s a mouthful!  No pun intended… These fritters were a huge hit.  I chose [...]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

I spend a ton of time baking, and when I bake for myself I like to try new things so it doesn’t just feel like work.  I wanted to make a fun and easy-to-eat dessert to bring to the Bowl, so I searched though all my recipes that I dream about having time to test.  [...]

NEW WEBSITE & ONLINE STORE!!

We’re so excited to say that after a lot of work, we’re finally ready to launch the new website and online store for C’est La V Bakeshop!  I say “we” did a lot of work, but the bulk of it was done by Ryan and our good friend Robert of LoopLava.  With the new online [...]

Mac & Cheese!

Mac & Cheese!

This is one of my all time favorite meals.  It’s so good, and really easy to make.  We’ve also served this to lots of non-vegans, and everyone loves it.  They tend to be a little skeptical about vegan mac n’ cheese, but this recipe always wins them over.  All that being said, it’s not the [...]

Grilled Zucchini with Almond Feta & Madison’s Garden Dressing

Grilled Zucchini with Almond Feta & Madison’s Garden Dressing

The title of this dish is a mouthful, but it’s actually much simpler than it sounds.  It’s really just a mish-mosh of recipes I’ve been wanting to try for awhile now.  The first recipe is the Almond Feta with Herb Oil from the April edition of Vegetarian Times magazine.  This recipe takes patience, but most [...]
