Vegan Veggie Chili and Cornbread by Morgan
I think this is the last day for a while that I'm going to borrow recipes from other blogs....I think. The problem is that no matter how little I read this or that blog, there is alllllways something I want to try. Being fall and all Morgan's Veggie Chili and Cornbread were calling my name

Pumpkin and Azuki Beans
My son brought home a small pumpkin after a field trip to the pumpkin patch the other day. For the first time I considered that a pumpkin could actually be eaten, and that not all pumpkin made for consumption comes out of a can only to be made into a pie

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
I was so happy to find A Fresh Dille the other day. I love the blogsphere. There's never an end to inspiration or the likely-hood that you might bump into like-minded people. I love that the blog's focus not only on food, but fashion amongst other topics

Vegan Breakfast Burritos To Die For
I'm so depressed that this picture is so bad because this burrito was SOOO good! I so admire Morgan from Little House of Veggies. Pretty much everything that is ever served at her table is incredibly delicious

No camera = No posts
I haven't fallen off the vegan wagon, I promise. This perfectionist did however lose the camera battery charger. I'm unfortunately one of those creative/disorganized people who generally loses something of importance weekly. I really don't like posting pictures I'm not proud of hence the lack of posts. Lame right? Tell that to my neurotic brain

A Vegan Who Doesn't Love Tofu?
Since this whole vegan journey began, I have kept tubs of tofu in the fridge ready to be cooked or thrown into this or that. More often than not, I happen across it in the fridge and realize the expiration date is long past due

Vegan BBQ Pulled "Pork" Sandwiches - Say What!?
I had never heard of Jackfruit until this whole vegan adventure began. The little vegan restaurant I've been obsessing about uses it in a million different ways. They have "fish" tacos, chalupas, and recently added reuban and bbq sandwiches. I tried the reuban the last time, and whoa! The jackfruit looked freakily like meat

Roasted Cauliflower and Wilted Spinach Salad - Vegan Yum Yum
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I drop off my youngest kiddo for preschool. I only have one more year left with my little guy at home which is totally sad (I will most certainly cry like a baby when he goes to kindergarten), but I've been making use of the time

Pumpkin and Chocolate....Oh My!
It is the most glorious September day here in Kansas City. The humidity of summer has already passed, so I'm breaking out the flavors of fall. Yes, I'm making more cupcakes, and still not losing that last 10 pounds.  But, at least I'm still cuter 20 pounds lighter, and a girl needs a cupcake

The Mother Of All Vegan Wraps
Ok truly, this was the best wrap ever. The little local vegan restaurant I keep raving about here in KC has a portobello wrap that we adore. They use all the fabulous local veggies they can get their hands on. The chef is incredibly creative. And because I can't afford to go there every day of my life like I want, I went to the farmer's market

Mom Knows Best - Vegan Banana Bread
My mom is a fantastic cook, and seriously makes the best banana bread on earth! Every time I have made her recipe and shared it, people have gone on and on about how wonderful it is (and they are right!) This is banana bread at its best. It may be more classified as a cake because it's that good. This is my second try making this vegan style

Vegan Fried Okra and Succotash
I'm already beginning to mourn the end of summer. Today was the first day I felt a little foretelling of Autumn in the air. While the fall is very dear to me, I'll miss the juicy red tomatoes of summer and the farmer's markets. My father in law has a little plot in a community garden.  He brought over some fresh cherry tomatoes and okra

Vegan Cupcake Heaven
I love getting a new cookbook. I think they're the best kind of books, well, right behind historical fiction. Anyway, today I got my amazon shipment, and my long awaited copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. After failing miserably on a few cake recipes, I wanted to have something reliable on the shelf for reference

Vegan Chickpea Cutlets
Last winter my friend Kylea went veg for a full month to see if it would be an experiment that she could sustain for her family. She's one of those people who inspire you in many ways

Morgan's Magic - Vegan Refried Beans
Since becoming a vegan, I've found the greatest food blogs. I've taken to cooking up some of the recipes I have on a growing list from other blog writers over the last week. Vegan cooks are the most creative of foodie folks because they have to substitute and re-create recipes out of unconventional ingredients

In search of the perfect wrap
So if you've wondered where I've been, I've been on a quest to make the perfect wrap. There's a little vegan restaurant called FÜD here in Kansas City that we've been to a few times. There they have the most incredible wraps and other delectable fare. I'm not usually one to order a glorified sandwich, but man are they good at FÜD

Hurry Up Alfredo Sauce - Vegan Yum Yum
Something creamy sounded good today. Every once and a while I miss heavy whipping cream. I'm still longing to find a vegan crème brûlée recipe (since that was the dessert I'm asked to bring to gatherings most often), but we'll see if I can find one that remotely passes as the real thing

How I Love Falafel
Are you starting to wonder if I am ever, ever going to lose that last 10 lbs? I promise, I'm not only eating fried food. But, falafel is kind of healthy (I like self delusion obviously.) Protein fried in healthy fat couldn't be that bad right? Anyway, we love falafel around here

Flippin' Awesome Vegan Cinnamon Rolls
The way to Nate's heart usually involves a route taken through a pastry shop. However, for some reason unbeknownst to me (even though I've tried a ba-jillion times), yeast breads and pastries don't usually work out for me

Vegan Fried Pickles - Bar Food Sans the Bar
I have totally and completely been obsessing about fried pickles. No, I'm not pregnant. It's my OCD, maniacal side. I haven't been officially diagnosed, but when I set my mind on something, I usually take it right off the deep end. Sometimes a girl just really, really needs something deep fried
