St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

Thanks to a brilliant idea from Ryan, I turned our Irish Steak and Stout Stew into Shepherd’s Pie last night.  I was going to top the stew with pastry crust and make Colcannon to serve on the side.  After making the stew and mashing the potatoes Ryan asked if it would be crazy to just [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

This recipe from Betty Goes Vegan was easy and SO delicious.  I loved the bright lemon flavor, and I don’t think I would have thought to use lemon juice in a mock chicken salad.  It’s so good!  I used to not be a fan of celery in pretty much anything, but it was great in [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 2 – Artichoke Newburg

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 2 – Artichoke Newburg

I’m back with another recipe from Betty Goes Vegan.  Since I made something sweet last time, I decided to go the savory route this time. I should start by saying that I’ve never had Lobster Newburg, the dish that this one is based on.  Because of that, I can’t really speak to how similar this [...]

Simple Crusty Bread

Simple Crusty Bread

I’ve been meaning to post about this bread for a long time, but I hadn’t actually made it in over a year.  Back when I was still doing Moveable Feast dinners with Alix (of the fantastic Cute + Delicious blog), she sent this recipe to me for our Spanish feast. I came back to this [...]

Quick Noodles with Kale & Tofu – Updated

Quick Noodles with Kale & Tofu – Updated

While making this the other night, I realized that I’ve changed a few things in this recipe but never updated you guys.  Ryan and I love this meal so much that we probably make it once every couple weeks.  I usually don’t mix it up too much, but I found myself out of the noodles [...]

C’est La Vegan on Instagram

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the most technologically savvy person, and I feel like I’ve been out of things for over a year, so cut me some slack when I tell you that I’m just finally starting to use Instagram.  Yes, I’m very behind the curve here. Now that I’m up to [...]

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Hi, guys!  I’m slowly coming out from under the craziness that is having a newborn baby to care for, and I actually have a minute to write up a post.  I hope to have more time before another two months (or more… ahem) goes by. Let me start by saying that if you have any [...]

Quick Noodles with Kale & Tofu

If you’re anything like me, you spend many a night standing in front of the cabinets or fridge trying to figure out what the heck to make for dinner.  After a long day, the last thing I want to do is cook, but you can only have cereal for dinner so many nights before it [...]

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 [...]

Comfort Food Dinner

Comfort Food Dinner

It’s been a while since I’ve done any cooking that’s more involved than my beloved Quick Noodles w/ Kale & Tofu or Pasta w/ “Meat” Sauce (I make versions of these weekly), but Ryan’s best friend was in town the other night so I wanted to cook a more substantial dinner.  I’d also been craving [...]

C’est La Video: Pasta with “Meat” Sauce & Speedy Garlic Bread

Do you guys know about Meatless Mondays?  If you’re one of my non-vegan readers, you may not have heard of this campaign, but it’s becoming more and more mainstream, and now even Oprah is in on it.  I’ve been wanting to start a Meatless Monday feature on the blog for a while now, and I’m [...]

Portland – Part 2

Portland – Part 2

In my last Portland post I brought you up to speed on the first couple days of our trip.  Sunday I was in workshops all day for Vida Vegan Con, and as a result, I was totally wiped out that evening.  So we ended up just wandering around the neighborhood near the hotel (which is [...]

Portland – Part 1

Portland – Part 1

Ryan and I got to Portland Friday morning, and after an early check-in, some unpacking and map-studying, we hit the ground running.  We started at Hungry Tiger Too and had some nachos and tofufuffalo wings (tofu buffalo wings).  Ryan was able to kick off his craft beer tour of Portland, and I was in heaven [...]
