Easy Refrigerator Pumpkin Cheesecake

Easy Refrigerator Pumpkin Cheesecake

I found this recipe online a while back, and I was dying to try it after seeing the amazing photo.  Anything that looks that good and has the word “easy” right in the title has my name written all over it!  While the original recipe wasn’t vegan, I could tell it would be easy enough [...]

“Fronch” Toast

“Fronch” Toast

The other morning I was craving a good “weekend” breakfast, but we were really short on time.  I grabbed my copy of “Vegan with a Vengeance” and went right to “Fronch” Toast, since I wasn’t really feeling a pancake vibe. After tearing through the cabinets to find my chickpea flour, I was able to pull [...]

Marinated Cheeze

Marinated Cheeze

Years ago, a friend of mine hosted a Fourth of July bbq and served this marinated cheese dish.  The flavors were totally addictive, and once I went vegan I always dreamt about making this dish with vegan cheeses.  I finally got around to doing just that, and I don’t have much more to say apart [...]

Granny Choe’s Kimchi Salsa

Granny Choe’s Kimchi Salsa

I was recently contacted by the company Granny Choe’s Kimchi Co. about trying their vegan kimchi, which was really exciting for me as it’s a food I’d never tried before.  I don’t have anything against it, it’s just that the opportunity to try it had never come up, and I never sought it out.  (And [...]

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 [...]

Tofu Benny

Tofu Benny

Behold!  The Tofu Benny from Vegan Brunch!  I might be a little too excited about this, but it’s only because it was so, so good!  And even better, it was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be.  To save time I did end up using English Muffins for the base rather [...]

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Happy 4th Vegan Month of Food!  This is my second year participating in Vegan MoFo, and I’m really excited to be a part of it again.  I’ll be posting every day of the week, along with literally hundreds of other bloggers from all over the world!  It’s big, ya’all. I decided to kick off MoFo [...]

Maya and a MoFo Wrap-Up

Maya and a MoFo Wrap-Up

I couldn’t think of a better way to end Vegan MoFo (and to celebrate Halloween at the same time) than with our beautiful cat, Maya!  I wanted to write about her for my last MoFo post because she had a lot to do with us going vegetarian. I think when you live with an animal, [...]

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 [...]

Badenjan Dip

Badenjan Dip

I saw Nigella Lawson make this Middle Eastern roasted eggplant dip on one of her cooking shows years ago, and since then I’ve made it many times for get togethers at our place, or as a dish to bring to a party. This doesn’t have an overpowering eggplant flavor, so even if it’s not your [...]

Chocolate Chip Date Cake

Chocolate Chip Date Cake

Last week in my  Bakin Wrapped Dates post I mentioned a Date Cake that I’d made, and here it is!  When I first passed the date stand at the Farmers Market I had a flash of this cake that my Mom had made when I was little.  I probably remembered it because dates sounded really [...]

Fried Plantains with Guacamole

Fried Plantains with Guacamole

A few years ago I saw a Good Eats episode featuring fried plantains.  They looked and sounded so good, and I made a mental note that I’d have to try them someday. Cut to breakfast a few months ago at Hugo’s Restaurant.  They were featuring a special that had plantains as part of the dish, [...]
