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 [...]

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 [...]

Marshmallow Mint Cookie Bark

Marshmallow Mint Cookie Bark

I bought some Rocky Road Bark from Sweet & Sara over the summer when I was stocking up on marshmallows for a camping trip, and I finally finished it off last week after hording it for months.  Of course as soon as I finished it I wanted more. I thought, why not try my hand [...]

Pumpkin Butterscotch Trifle

Pumpkin Butterscotch Trifle

I was having a hard time deciding what to make for dessert this Thanksgiving.  I wanted to make something different, but still appropriate for the holiday.  There must have been some divine intervention on Wednesday, because I found myself suddenly thinking about a pumpkin trifle, and the rest was history! I used the recipe for [...]

Ceci with Garlic and Sage

Ceci with Garlic and Sage

I’ve made these Ceci (Chickpeas) with Garlic and Sage a couple times now, and I think I’m finally getting the hang of this Michael Chiarello recipe.  The first time I made these I followed the recipe exactly, but I found my skillet very crowded and they just didn’t crisp up as much as I would [...]

Easy Chestnut Soup

Easy Chestnut Soup

For some reason I’ve really been wanting to cook with chestnut this year.  I have to admit that I’m intimidated to roast them myself, and they can also be a bit pricey.  Fortunately Trader Joe’s has pre-cooked vacuum-sealed packages of them that are so convenient to use and are also reasonable priced.  Aw yeah! I [...]

Mini Radish Tartine

Mini Radish Tartine

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I thought I’d feature recipes this week that would work for the holiday, starting with these incredibly simple mini radish tartines. Before designing a menu for afternoon tea, I’d never had a radish sandwich before.  I knew that radishes served with butter were a classic french treat, and [...]

Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

Guys, I’m feeling beat today.  It’s gray and drizzly, which is actually kind of nice, but it isn’t helping me to feel more awake.  It’s been a long week, I  have a busy weekend coming up, and then lots of cooking next week for Thanksgiving. Why am I telling you all this?  Because this Cheesy [...]

Heirloom Sweet Peppers

Heirloom Sweet Peppers

Every autumn I admire the the piles of colorful peppers at the Farmers Market that seem to be overflowing from every stand this time of year.  They start to show up at the end of the summer season, and they look so beautiful that I’ve always felt like I should be buying them up like [...]

Peanut Butter Oatsies from The Kitchen & The Garden Patch

Peanut Butter Oatsies from The Kitchen & The Garden Patch

I was recently sent a copy of the vegan cookbook “The Kitchen & The Garden Patch” by Melissa Bergen.  Melissa wrote, designed and self-published this beautiful book, and she included a vintage kitchen linen and seed packet in my package.  So adorable! This cookbook reminds me of my Mom’s cookbooks that I so enjoyed looking [...]

Baked Granola

Baked Granola

Granola is so easy to make from scratch, and it would be worth it even if it were more difficult.  Most recipes out there are already vegan, often with the exception of honey, which is really easy to substitute for.  Every now and then you come across a recipe that calls for butter, but again, [...]

Michael Chiarello Book Signing

Michael Chiarello Book Signing

When I saw that Michael Chiarello was going to be singing copies of his new book, “Bottega”, at the Williams-Sonoma store in Beverly Hills, I was a little nervous about going.  If you’re familiar with my blog, then you know how much I love veganizing his recipes.  I’ve featured a handful of my favorites here, [...]

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

I know the temperatures have dropped for most of us, but even when it’s cold out I still can’t resist a good shake.  When I was little my mom would sometimes make me killer chocolate shakes, and they were one of my favorites things in the whole world. Of course, you can make a non-dairy [...]
