Vegan MoFo #23–Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

Twenty-three posts out of thirty-one ain’t too shabby!  Besides, three is a holy number, right?  And I went three posts over the goal of twenty, so that makes me a vegan cooking saintess.  (smile) I could wax on about how much Vegan MoFo 2008 has taught me: all the glories and riches of vegan cooking […]

Vegan MoFo #22–Perfect Split Pea Soup

I never thought I would say this, but I’m in love with Martha Stewart’s recipes.  I spent hours on her site the other day clicking through album after album of food porn, oogling recipes, and finding the random delicious already vegan recipes mixed in with pig and fish extravaganzas.  It was a hedonistic experience not […]

Vegan MoFo #21–Herb Batter Bread

I’m getting a bit MoFoed out, not gonna lie.  But on the upside, it dropped below freezing last night!  In Georgia!  It is so ridiculously beautiful outside right now–crisp, clean, bright air, filtered sunlight, the leaves finally changing colors, blue sky–I can’t ask for anything better. Proof that it’s really cold in my apartment–until now, […]

Vegan MoFo #20–“Beef,” Leek, and Barley Soup

Ahhh Friday night.  A pie in the oven, rain down outside, wind howling through the trees, no central heat, and three cats pumped up on catnip. Right now I’m making the poet a s’mlove pie for tomorrow’s celebration–he’s taking his final comprehensive exam for his master’s program at 9 am!  I know he’s going to […]

Vegan MoFo #19–Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Hey look, I made it!  I’m still alive!  Sometimes I wonder why I love academia…it’s certainly not for the papers.  I promise to keep my whining to a minimum next semester when I’m pounding out chapter after chapter of my thesis.  (smile) Remember the pumpkin pie bites?  Well, because I didn’t make a regular sized […]

Vegan MoFo #18–Vegan Paper Writing

This is what my life looked like last night and how it still looks this morning (except that I’ve moved onto coffee now).  At least I had some hot chocolate to keep me & my massive book of Thomas Hardy‘s collected poetry company! Vegan Peppermint Hot Chocolate 1 cup soymilk 1.5 tbsp cocoa 2 tbsp […]

Vegan MoFo #17–Vegan Walking II

I’m a bit tired of typing.  And I’m only part-way finished with my seminar paper, with just over 24 hours to go, so I’m going to leave you with a few pre-fall (but still taken in the month of October) photographs of my favorite walk between my house and Little Five Points/Reynoldstown.  In case you […]

Vegan MoFo #16–Okra Bowl

I am so so so sorry I’ve been MIA this weekend.  I feel dirty for not posting… it’s just that things keep piling up and I can’t get a handle on it.  Major presentation for one of my seminars today?  Yep.  Have I prepared?  Nope.  Major paper due for my other seminar on Wednesday?  Yep.  […]

Vegan MoFo #15–Anatomy of a Freezer

I’m generally not a big fan of memes, but Knits with Carrots tagged me for the freezer one.  Since I live in an apartment by myself, my freezer isn’t very full and is quite boring.  But here goes! On top, lots of ice trays and ice packs On the left, one and half bags of […]

Vegan MoFo #14–National Feral Cat Day & World Bread Day

First off, it’s National Feral Cat Day and where would I be without my Miss Dorian Gray?  A feral momma cat in my mother’s neighborhood left two tiny mewing furballs on her front porch this past June.  The kittens fit in the palm of my hand and I fell in love with a gray, huge-pawed, […]
