Vegan MoFo #13–Pumpkin Pie Bites

What’s better than pumpkin pie?  Pumpkin pie bites with chocolate cookie crusts! I’m not sure why I thought a chocolate crust and pumpkin pie filling would go together (other than Halloween colors are orange and black, so I thought it’d be festive at least!), but they do oh-so-fabulously.  The pie filling recipe is from Liz‘s […]

Vegan MoFo #12–Brussels Sprouts

Sometimes really bad things happen to people–random acts of violence, robberies, muggings, etc.  And it’s really fucked up.  And it makes you question the government that is supposedly taking care of its people.  No worries, I’m fine, I’ve just been helping take care of someone who was affected. Caramelized Tofu & Brussels Sprouts So, short […]

Vegan MoFo #10–Vegan Warming

I found a blooming gardenia bush on one of my walks this week.  October and gardenias?  Who knew!  Is it global climate change or a little gardenia that just wants to bloom? Remember how I said I’m vegan for environmental reasons? Well, Fred over at Fragments from Floyd pointed me towards an interesting article that […]

Vegan MoFo #9–Crack Cookies

Remember the crack biscuits?  Well, I now bring you crack cookies.  These are the best vegan cookies I’ve ever had.  EVER.  Granted, I’m a cookie snob, but these are chewy and moist and crunchy and chocolatey and not too sweet and nutty and.  There are a lot of ands I could keep adding on.  And […]

Vegan MoFo # 8–Vegan Junk Food

I’m not quite sure what I’d do without Liz. She makes cute vegan things, writes fabulous recipes (example soon to come!), and informs me of radtastic who-knew-it-could-be-vegan snacks. Thus, I provide for you a photo montage of my newest obsession–vegan Doritos. I’m afraid I may live on these chips during road trips, drinking binges, and […]

Vegan MoFo #7–Rainy Day Chili

It’s raining!  It’s only 65 degrees outside!  It’s a miracle! While it may be October 8, when everyone is supposed to be feeling fallish, it’s been a [insert sarcasm] nice sunny humid 85 degrees here for the past week.  Soul killing.  But it was colder in the distant past, and I’m hoping it will be […]

Vegan MoFo #6–Vegan Walking

I love walking.  I love walking so much that I used to have a blog that pretty much only documented the long (5+ mile) walks that I take.  That blog is now merged here, so you can back track through the archives and find a few posts with pictures and musings. For now, I’m going […]

Vegan MoFo #5–Seitanic Pot Pie

I’ve seen quite a few pot pie recipes going around lately–something to do with that combo of cooler weather, autumnal appeitites, and Vegan MoFo.  (smile) Pot pies, or pot pie-esque dishes are the ultimate comfort food to me.  I remember when my mom would throw a Marie Calendar’s Chicken Pot Pie into the microwave when […]

Vegan MoFo #4–Remember the Seitans

So it’s only my 4th post, but the 5th day of MoFo…so I’m going to call it #4.  How am I supposed to keep tabs!  Agh!  I’m an English major, yo, I don’t do math.  (smile) (edit, I’ve switched to a numbering system, so #4 it is!) So remember when the Seitan o’ Greatness recipe […]

Vegan MoFo #3–Dinner in a Bowl

Happy Friday!  I’m going to keep it short (already a bit exhausted from three days of MoFo goodness), but just wanted to share the easiest most satisfying down-home dinner I’ve had in a long time: Tofutti Guacamole Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes Julienned Carrot and Zucchini lightly sauted in olive oil with almond slivers (a la […]
