Vegan MoFo Day 31: Halloween Enchiladas

Well, I didn’t quite get to post every day this month, but I did post way more than last year or the year before. I posted 28 out of 31 days, and I’m pretty proud of that. I’m okay, other than a little whiplash, but my car slipped on the ice this weekend, wrestled with a tree, and lost. I was feeling a little miserable, so I ended up pounding a fancy soda, half a sleeve of accidentally vegan cookies, and passing out in sugar coma on the sofa. So, I took a little... Read More

MoFo Day 28: Banana Split Ice Cream

I really needed a night off yesterday. I have a lot of deadlines at work, and put in over 50 hours this week. I could barely make myself dinner last night, and I didn’t think anyone wanted to see a bowl of reheated greens and Gardein, even though it was tasty. I did get 7 glorious hours of sleep, and almost felt like a normal person today. I’ve been thinking about the recipe for banana split cashew ice cream that Dawn posted at veg-am since I read it. Despite the plummeting... Read More

MoFo Day 24: Simple Supper

I ended up working really late, so tonight’s dinner was really quick and easy. Honestly, when it isn’t MoFo, a lot of my meals are like this. Some tofu, tempeh, seitan, or beans, and a vegetable or two. Tonight I baked some tofu marinated in mango puree, pineapple juice, ginger, coconut, tamari, garlic, and sesame oil, drizzled with Sriracha, and served alongside some sauteed kale. Not pictured are the hummus and crackers I had before, and the Tempt Vanilla and Pomegranate... Read More

MoFo Day 23: Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

I saw these Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts on Oh She Glows a few months ago, but didn’t make them until this weekend. I had just enough pumpkin left over from my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Ginger Muffins for a batch. I only have one mini doughnut pan, so I made the rest as holes. These little treats have a delicate crumb, and are nicely flavored with pumpkin pie spices. Don’t skip the cinnamon sugar coating! The only change I made was to use caramel flavored flax oil, because…I... Read More

MoFo Day 21: Oh, Crepes!

I remember crepes being one of the few things I actually liked at iHop. They were served with lingonberry jam and powdered sugar. Then, I had crepes on my very first vacation with Carl nearly 7 years ago. We were in Paris, also a first, and I bought one from a cart. It was January, so the air was cold, but the warm, soft, and chewy crepe warmed my hands as the chocolate and banana melted into it. I like pancakes, but I love, love, love crepes, so I wonder why I’ve been vegan... Read More

MoFo Day 19: Easy Yeasted Bread

It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for a recipe from Pinterest. I decided to make the Easy Little Bread Recipe I’ve been eying from 101 Cookbooks. Heidi’s blog was one of the first food blogs I read, and I continue to enjoy the way she makes simple, wholesome ingredients look and taste so good. I was really attracted to this bread because of how easy it seemed to put together. Even though I’m easily distracted, especially after a particularly long day at... Read More

MoFo Day 18: Roasted Cabbage with Lemon

I was planning on making the Roasted Cabbage with Lemon recipe I found over at Kayln’s Kitchen for Pinterest Wednesday, but when I forgot that I bought a head of cabbage, then ordered 2 pounds from my produce delivery, I suddenly found myself needing to cook a lot of cabbage, quickly. I brushed the slices with 1 tablespoon of oil whisked with 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, then sprinkled them with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. The next time I make this, I’llĀ  leave... Read More

MoFo Day 17: Rings of Fire

I’d picked a song for Music Monday, then I was browsing the MoFo blog and came across La Vida Vegga’s post for delicata squash rings, which led me to Kittee’s post. Immediately, Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” popped into my head, and it’s been stuck there all day. I like Johnny Cash, so that isn’t such a bad thing. Ring of Fire Roseanne Cash says that “Ring of Fire” is about the tranformative power of love. Well, I certainly... Read More

MoFo Day 15: Flax Attack

I spent much of the day trying to decide how to use of some of my flax. The timing wasn’t right for waffles or pancakes, and reading all the pumpkin recipes popping up made me think about a quick bread or muffins. I found a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Bread over at Fat Free Vegan and decided to modify it. I was a little worried that I’d end up with bricks when I subbed flax and oat bran for so much of the flour, changed the sweeteners and used whole wheat pastry flour,... Read More

MoFo Day 13: Raw Mango Cheesecake

It’s Raw Food Thursday! I wanted to make a small dessert, so I soaked 1/2 cup of raw cashews on my way out this morning, and figured I’d plan around it. I have lots of frozen mango in the freezer, so I thought I’d look for a raw mango cheesecake. I found lots of recipes that I want to try later, but this berry cheesecake recipe at Chow Vegan seemed like the easiest to modify, and was already scaled to a reasonable size. I used some crystallized ginger in the... Read More
