Cauliflower Bisque with “Buttered” Breadcrumbs

Cauliflower Bisque with “Buttered” Breadcrumbs

The other night we had some friends over for dinner, and I thought I’d make a soup and salad type meal featuring this Cauliflower Bisque.  I’m constantly saving recipes that I find online, but I often forget to go back and actually make them.  I found this one in an old email I’d sent to [...]

Spring Panzanella Salad

Spring Panzanella Salad

This bright green spring salad is one of my favorites.  I love panzanella salads in general (who wouldn’t love a bread salad?!), and this version from Michael Chiarello is really awesome.  Thank god I finally like asparagus and peas – if you’d served this to me as a kid I’d have probably made a wise-crack [...]

Fresh Pesto Pasta with Garlic Bread

Fresh Pesto Pasta with Garlic Bread

I know that the pasta up there looks a little crazy, but man did it taste good!  I bought it at the Mangi Con Amore stand at the Hollywood Farmers Market in anticipation of wanting a simple weeknight meal, and that shape – Traditional Trofie – was recommended as going really  well with pesto sauce. [...]

Biscuits & Gravy

Biscuits & Gravy

Ah, Biscuits and Gravy, one of Ryan’s all-time favorite dishes.  Before I stopped eating meat, I’d never had “real” biscuits and gravy.  Being the picky eater that I was, the idea of blobby, white sausage gravy grossed me out.  Gravy was definitely not something I ate as a kid, and even as an adult I [...]

Cherry Almond Loaf

Cherry Almond Loaf

The other day when I was looking for a particular post, I came across this photo in a draft that I had totally forgotten about.  I have no idea how this slipped through the cracks!  I meant to write about it this summer, and just forgot I guess.  Poor loaf. I made this when Ryan [...]

Taste of Life

Taste of Life

I finally got the chance to eat some Taste of Life a couple months ago, and I’m probably the last vegan in LA to try this stuff!  It’s certainly old news to many, but since becoming a vendor at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market, Ryan and I have had it almost every week.  Apparently they’ve closed [...]

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup with Cheddar Biscuits

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup with Cheddar Biscuits

Awwww… look how much the squash and apples love each other.  They know that they taste really good together, as evidenced in this delicious soup.  I first made this years ago, back when I was watching Food Network all the time.  My favorite show was Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello, because I think that was the [...]

Strawberry Loaf with White Chocolate Chips

Strawberry Loaf with White Chocolate Chips

I love strawberries, but no matter how many I eat, I always seem to have a bunch left-over in the fridge.  I usually end up dealing with them once half of them are past saving, and I cut the rest up and throw them in the freezer for smoothies.  I know that next time I [...]

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 [...]

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

One thing I really miss since giving up meat is a good tuna sandwich.  There were a lot of reasons that we finally gave up fish (and said goodbye to non-veggie sushi, which is really what was holding us back), but one thing that was freaking us out was the amount of mercury we were [...]

Fantastic Picnic Submarine

Fantastic Picnic Submarine

I love a good sandwich, and The Fantastic Picnic Sub is our camping sandwich of choice.  This sandwich is really tasty, and even though it has a lot of veggie meat, even non-vegetarians love it.  I found this recipe somewhere online years ago (I thought on the PETA site, but when I just looked for [...]

Grilled Teese!

Grilled Teese!

I’ve been meaning to make this sandwich all month since April is National Grilled Cheese month, which I didn’t know until my sister sent me an article about it a few weeks ago.  When I realized that today was the last day of the month, and that there were only a few more hours of [...]
