Suckatash 2.0

Ryan recently re-vamped his website, and it looks even more fantastic than it already did!  He now has a section on his site to highlight the food photography he’s done for me over the past few years, which features some really amazing and mouthwatering images.  I’m so proud of him (and so grateful for his [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Mini Biscotti Give-Away!

Mini Biscotti Give-Away!

UPDATE: The winner of the biscotti give-away is Robin, who said… Oh biscotti! I haven’t had one in more than a decade since I became vegan. These look delicious. My favorite Thanksgiving dessert are crescent rolls filled with homemade cranberry sauce and dusted with cinnamon sugar. Congratulations, Robin!  Thanks to everyone who entered, and be [...]

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 [...]

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake

After about four different Thanksgiving celebrations stretched over two weeks, I think I can official say that I’m over it.  Although I bet if you give me about a week I’ll probably be ready for more! On the actual holiday we had about eight friends over, and I ended up serving green bean casserole (and [...]

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes

Yesterday I said sweet potato casserole might be my favorite Thanksgiving side, but mashed potatoes give it a run for its money.  I know they seem too simple to do a post about, but I love them so much that I just can’t help myself. We don’t save them just for the holidays either.  Both [...]

SusanV’s Sweet Potato Casserole

SusanV’s Sweet Potato Casserole

What you’re looking at might be my favorite Thanksgiving side.  I can’t even begin to put into words how much I love this sweet potato casserole.  I found the recipe last year on the Fat Free Vegan Kitchen blog and asked my friend Laurel to bring it to our vegan Thanksgiving.  She was nice enough [...]

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I know that Brussels sprouts have a reputation for being disgusting, but when they’re cooked the right way, they’re actually really delicious.  Any vegetable is pretty gross when overcooked, so if you’ve had a bad experience with Brussels sprouts, please give them another chance.  If the fact that they taste great isn’t enough to convince [...]

Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

Ah, the classic Green Bean Casserole.  As a kid, I absolutely hated it.  Once I got older, I learned to appreciate it.  Once I started to cook, I learned to love it. I think anyone who’s ever made a Thanksgiving meal is familiar with the famous condensed-soup version of this recipe, but making this from [...]
