Dark Wholemeal Bread with Flax Seeds

October, where have you gone?! My goodness, it’s been a crazy-awesome month MoFoing with you all. I wish I could have kept up the pace a bit better, but the conference in Houston, Alternative Thanksgiving, and school kept getting in the way. You all were so inspiring and now I’ve got a long list of […]

Curried Winter Squash Soup

This week has been a little bit insane, and it’s aiming to be only more so until November hits on Sunday, so bear with me these last few days of Vegan MoFo 2009. I tried…but, well, last year was a bit more successful on the daily posting side of things. Lately I’ve been making a […]

Apple Butter

First of all, I swam a mile today!!!! Wooohooo! It’s not my first, but it’s been awhile since I’ve dedicated enough time and energy to attempt one, and I feel like I might be getting back on track exercise wise. Last week I started swimming with my friend A. here and it’s made all the […]

Tempeh Tube Sausage

Saturday–thank goodness. This week seems like it’s dragged on and on. Most of this might be due to the 3:45 am wake up time I had on Tuesday for filming the morning show segments. Most of this might be related to the fact that I gave up coffee this week (seriously not the best week […]

Pan Roasted Hen of the Woods Mushrooms with Maple Pumpkin Polenta and Tatsoi “Spoon” Mustard Greens

While I owe you guys a recap of my Alternative Thanksgiving talk and demo this past Tuesday night, I just must share this amazing, oh-my-goodness-this-is-the-perfect-autumn-easy-but-fancy-pants dinner. Last week Barbara of Dish ‘n’ That shared the most amazing looking polenta recipe from Cuisine magazine: Maple Pumpkin Polenta. As soon as she posted it, I knew I […]

Southwestern Cabbage Soup

I’m starting to get a little burned out on cooking right now, just a little. If you head over to the Thanksgiving Tutorials section you’ll find lots of new goodies: gluten-free cornbread, stuffed acorn squash, cranberry orange relish (among others). By this time next week I’ll be in Thanksgiving overload–and it’s only October! It is […]

Perfect Vegan Gluten-Free Pie Crust

You know those moments when all of a sudden you realize that you’ve totally rocked something out?  Moments when skipping and singing “by jove, I’ve got it” don’t seem unreasonable, when all things vegan and gluten-free seem possible?  Well, I had one of those moments the other day, and let me tell you, it rocked. […]

Alternative Thanksgiving

I’m really due to give you another recipe, but first a quick announcement for anyone in the Southwestern Virginia area. Next week, Tuesday, October 20, I will be giving a demonstration and talk on vegan and gluten-free Thanksgiving menus at the main branch of the Roanoke Public Library. The event begins at 6 p.m. and […]

More RVA Goodness

Saturday morning I headed back to Roanoke, but not before scarfing down a delicious vegan brunch. I dragged my family over to 821 Cafe in the VCU/Fan area. I’d wanted to go to Ipanema’s brunch so so so badly, but they only serve it on Sundays and everyone in my family wanted pancakes and omlettes, […]

Richmond, I love You

Crossroads’ Vegan Tofu Scramble Breakfast Burrito with Vegan Cheese and Vegan Sausage and a side of hash browns (cup of coffee behind) I lied, I have internet and delicious vegan brunch in my belly. Richmond, fair city, I love you.  And Jessy, thank you thank you thank you for all the yummy suggestions!  I’m so […]
