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 [...]

Tofu Egg Salad Crescent Cups

Tofu Egg Salad Crescent Cups

I couldn’t get eggs and asparagus out of my head when I was thinking about what to make for Easter this year, so I decided to bring both together in these tasty little Easter-inspired Tofu Egg Salad Crescent Cups. What really sets these apart is an ingredient that I learned about from vegan goddess Isa [...]

“Pretzels: Based on the recipe ‘Soft Pretzels’ by Colleen”

“Pretzels: Based on the recipe ‘Soft Pretzels’ by Colleen”

These Pretzel bites were what we served for the film “Precious: Based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire”.  I’ve made them before in classic pretzel shape, and they were so good that I was looking for a chance to make them again. I was originally going to do these for “Inglourious Basterds” as “Inglourious Dough [...]

“Faux Bird Fried”

“Faux Bird Fried”

I mentioned in my first post from our Oscar party that I made a couple old favorites in addition to some new recipes.  This is one of the former, definitely worth making over and over again!  These fried chicken bites are what we served for the film “The Blind Side.”  You might recognize the photo [...]

“The Herb Popper”

Ah, the Oscars… so many stars, and such a great opportunity to get together with friends and make fun of them.  Okay, not all of them, just most of them.  If you’ve read my posts from last year’s Oscars, you know that for the past three years Ryan and I have hosted a little soiree [...]

Pretzels

Pretzels

You know what’s coming this weekend…  That’s right – it’s Super Bowl time!  Now I must admit that I’ve never actually been much of a football fan, but I’ve always been a food fan and game food is some pretty great food.  I don’t have anything against the actual game, but being the youngest of [...]

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Bean Dip”

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Bean Dip”

The past couple of years my husband and I have hosted an Oscar party, and last year we thought it would be fun to make dishes that had names punning (is that a word?) the best picture nominees.  Two examples from last year were “There Will Not Be Blood Meatballs” and “No Dairy For Old [...]

“Soydog Millionaire”

“Soydog Millionaire”

These couldn’t be simpler.  Cut soy hot dogs into pieces, wrap in crescent roll dough, and bake.  I know that crescent rolls are full of chemicals and not-so-great-for-you ingredients, but they happen to be vegan, they’re easy and pretty yummy.  I was nervous about using faux hot dogs because in the past I’ve never really [...]

“No MILK Queso”

“No MILK Queso”

Everyone expected us to do “SoyMILK” or something like that for this one.  When you’re making vegan food and playing on the name “MILK”, it’s kind of too easy, but I didn’t want to do something really obvious.  This is Vegan Explosion‘s queso recipe.  It’s awesome.  No one would know it’s vegan, and it’s really [...]
