Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Right on the heels of Part 1 of my Oscar post comes Part 2!  Here’s the “Argochoke Dip: Go Cluck Yourself”, which I posted about a few weeks ago.  This was a big hit.  We had a couple vegetarians at the party, but no other vegans.  In case you’d be worried to serve this to [...]

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

I tested another recipe over the weekend for our Oscar party, but this one would also be perfect for the Superbowl this Sunday.  I wanted to do something different than my normal Hot Artichoke Dip, and using chicken worked for one the of the title puns I’ve been working on.  I came across this recipe [...]

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Looking at the calendar yesterday I realized that we’re a lot further into November than I’d realized.  That means Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I’d better start figuring out what I’m going to make! With that in mind, I thought I’d go through past posts that would be appropriate for the holiday.  Let’s [...]

Spinach Dip

Spinach Dip

As promised, here’s the new dip I made for Ryan’s birthday get-together this past weekend.  It was my first time making the classic bread bowl spinach dip.  To be honest, I used to not really like this kind of dip at all.  After tasting this one though, I have to change my tune.  I’ll definitely [...]

Super Easy Onion Dip

Super Easy Onion Dip

Ryan’s birthday was Friday, so we had a few friends over on Saturday to celebrate.  I’d been working on a large cupcake order for a couple days, so after finishing that and helping to clean up our place, I didn’t have a lot of energy left to make food. I did end up making one [...]

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

With so much beautiful asparagus at the Farmers’ Market lately, I’ve been trying to find new recipes that feature this tasty veggie.  This one looked great and seemed really easy to veganize, and since I love the combo of lemon and asparagus together, I thought I’d give it a try. This recipe was so easy [...]

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

My mom recently gave me an adorable little cookbook called Simply Scones that has recipes for the titular biscuit-like treats and spreads to serve alongside them.  Both my mom and I love scones (and bread, and cake, and cookies…).  It’s really out of our hands I think; it must be the Bohemian blood or something. [...]

Vegan Queso Give-Away!

UPDATE: The winner of the vegan queso is Tami (vegan appetite), who commented that her “favorite snack would be wingz. Wingz dipped in queso sound fantastic!”  Thanks so much to everyone who entered! Guys, I’m really excited to announce this give-away.  You may remember a post I did a while back about Vegan Explosion’s queso.  [...]

Awesome Easy Layer Dip

Awesome Easy Layer Dip

For the life of me, I couldn’t come up with a name for this dip.  Soy Chorizo Papaya Mango Salsa?  Guacamole Chorizo Tropical something?  Tropical Spicy Creamy Chip Stuff? It’s awesome, and it’s easy, so that’s what I went with!  I made this for a Bears’ brunch we had on Sunday, and it was a [...]

White Bean Boursin

White Bean Boursin

We finally made it to the end of Vegan MoFo!  Part of me can’t believe how quickly the month flew by, and part of me can’t believe how long it took.  I’ve so enjoyed participating this year, and while it was definitely challenging at times, it was also really rewarding.  I wanted a little shot [...]

Garden Herb Spread

Garden Herb Spread

I hate it when I make a recipe that leaves leftover tofu, because I always end up forgetting about it and then find it when cleaning the fridge days (or weeks) later.  Into the trash it goes, and I’m left feeling super guilty that I wasted it.  It seems to be a cycle that never [...]

Cheezy Beer Dip

Cheezy Beer Dip

Our friends had an Oktoberfest party over the weekend, and I wanted to bring something that seemed appropriate for the occasion.  I’m not sure how authentic “Beer Cheese” dips are to the festival, but with beer right in the title, I figured it would work. I found some recipes online that used both cream cheese [...]
