MAY

In 1223 Church on May 6, 2011 at 11:54 pm

It’s May. MAAAY.

It’s been three months since I have posted anything in this blog! This blog I once poured my heart and brains into! I even made that header.  To be honest, as much as I love it,  it’s the reason I’ m have entered into scandalous territories of neglect. The fact that Fish Food shows up over the header in big red text really irks me. I am ashamed of it.

I would like some help with that, thanks!

Aside from that, I’m still EATING and I’m still eating VEGAN and now I have come to terms with my WHEAT INTOLERANCE. Now I love life even more because of all the painless tummy times I’ve been having! What joy. Seriously. A torso that feels like a hard, inflated bruise is not a good time.

SO!

I should be here! And I should be at XGFX, too! And in the garden growing as much as my knowledge and luck will let me!

 Let me fill you in on the latter part of February!

Mexican Style Salsa Potatoes

Oh I wish I could remember what I put in this outstanding  potato dish. Sigh!

Quesadilla!

Touch me all over, you sultry quesadilla. I could have you every day. Onions, green pepper, mushrooms mixed with cheddar and mozza Daiya… yes please!

Fiery Falafel Scramble

One morning when I was out of my usual scramble ingredients I had this genius idea to use FALAFEL MIX! It was ah-maze-ing! I added some chili flakes and kept the colors fiery with red pepper, corn, and carrots!

Taquito, taquito!

For the “meat” on the inside I used The Ordinary Vegetarian’s “Super Veggie Lentil Taco Meat” recipe mixed with some cheddar Daiya! I baked these babies to retain their healthfulness. Here’s a picture before they entered my heat chamber:

Taquitos uncooked

Siamese Twin Velvet Pancakes

I know this isn’t a super sexy picture of vegan pancakes but I hope you can appreciate their Siamese twin nature. Plus, these pancakes were velvet to the touch. So lush.

Phew!

I’ll be back soon with MARCH!

January Wrappin’

In 1223 Church on February 3, 2011 at 2:14 am

Wrap wrap wrappin’ it up! These are the goodies I made in the last week of January!

I can stroke one off my Future Dishes (stroke one off, hehe) because I made…

 

Carrot Cake Pancakes!

Yeah, that’s maple cream cheese sauce on top with maple roasted shelled flax. I don’t lie, friends.

The recipe made 14 pancakes! I still have four at work in the freezer just begging to be toasted up. Next time I will most definitely be adding a drip of molasses to that recipe as well as some chopped pecans!

Here’s the shex-ay batter shot:

 

…b-b-b-batter up!

 

The noodle binge continues with a Chinese Style Teriyaki Noodle dish with broccoli and carrots. Friggin’ yum.

 

The sauce is aptly named “Teriyaki Divine!”

Oh, and in case you were wondering about a hot inside shot of that birthday cake… Here she is!

That’s what I like to see!

And lastly, some sweet sweet Daiya action for y’all. Discounted baguette with some homemade pizza sauce, onions, green pepper, mushroom, and Daiya. I wish baguette agreed with me. Seems it puts up quite a battle in my stomach. Sadness.

Magical Mini Pizzas on Baguette

Feel free to leave me some comment love! It would really make my day!

Birthday Cake

In 1223 Church on January 28, 2011 at 10:51 am

Yesterday was my dear friend Dale’s birthday! I made him this cake (: It’s a basic chocolate cake with chocolate peanut butter cream cheeze icing!

 

Happy Birthday, Dale!

The recipe I used was Tara’s Chocolate Cake from Sarah Kramer’s “La Dolce Vegan!” It was given many thumbs up and rants at the Birthday Potluck!

 

Also I recently broke out my Tu-No Casserole for a potluck. Huuuuge hit! Such great wintertime comfort food. It’s a recipe I know I’ll be making regularly for the rest of my life. Takes me straight back to the ol’ childhood.

This is her, nude, without her soda cracker crumbles. It’s really the best way to understand her depth and enjoy what she has to offer if you can’t really be with her.

 

Naked Tu-NO Casserole

 

One more potluck treasure from this month: Ginger Crinkle Cookies !!! Tried and true, this recipe is above and beyond any other ginger cookie I have ever had OR tried. It’s crinkly and crunch on the outisde and moist, chewy, and spicy on the inside.

This time I rolled them in orange and pink decorators sugar. Sexy!

 

So you understand their intensity.

 

Showin' off on my favourite baby plate.

Oh, I’m off to make somebreakfast scramble and fetch my coffee! Hope everyone enjoys the blog’s new “look” and name! Soon it will link you back to the main page. CSS is frisky.

This month has been delightful food wise. Earlier I ordered 10lbs of Daiya from Karmavore! That makes everything allllright.

I’ve been really into mac ‘n cheeze due to the winter weather, short days, and the simple fact that it is deeeeerichious!

Mac ‘n Daiya!

Mid month I got together with a friend who is living in San Francisco right now, just home visiting on a work trip. We went to Morris East for some tasty wood fired pizza. Always a pleasure.

Roasted Vegetable Pizza with extra onions

Then my friend Molly and I exchanged vegan boxes for the holidays. Chocolate Caramel popcorn, Mac-n-chip cookie, chocolate bars, gummi bunnies, and ginger mints! Check-check-check it out!!!

SWEET TREATS

Over the Holidays I found myself indulging in something dirty dirty dirty. Mr.Noodles.

When I realized what I did to myself I vowed to find a way to make hot, spicy, brothy noodles at home!

When I re-read what Meghan Telphner has to say about MSG, and all the other names MSG can be labelled as, it reignited my fuel for the fire! No more MSG for me.

So, this is what I make:

Hot Noodz, you got what I want.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Shimmer me timbers, baby! These noodles look fiiine.

Broth time!

Small pot – Med-High

2C H2O

1 T Braggs

1/2 tsp Sriracha

1/2 tsp Lemongrass Paste

1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

1 T sugar

 

Once that gets to the boiling point take a small dish and mix 1T cornstarch and 2T water, mix this well until there are no clumps.

Pour into the broth mixture and stir in quickly. This will thicken it a tiny bit.

Meanwhile, you should have been cooking your skinny rice noodles or whatever tickles your fancy.

This is enough broth to pour over 2-3 bowls of noodles,depending on how brothy you like your noodz.

The Scramble Diaries;; pt. 2

In 1223 Church on January 25, 2011 at 7:11 pm

Basic, yet bold.

This is my fall-back scramble. Onions, green pepper, carrots, and mushrooms. Standard spicing: Braggs, nooch, basil, tumeric, and garlic. You really can’t go wrong with it. If Boy George has taught me anything, it’s how to make a good scramble. This time around I left everything a little bigger than my normal dice’r up attitude demands. I think I was onto something because, hot damn! this scramble was perfect.

Oh, she's a beaut.

 

Tofu Scramble: It never gets old.

The Scramble Diaries;; pt. 1

In 1223 Church on January 24, 2011 at 11:41 am

I’m just gonna slide in here and give you something fresh.

Seems I have started what’s called The Scramble Diaries. I make a lot of scramble. It’s always different. I feel it deserves it’s own special focus.

Yesterday I didn’t have any carrots or mushrooms (gasp!) so I improvised with

corn and dill!

 

 

Roasted Red Pepper Scramble with Corn and Dill

What a babe! Look close, do you see those slivers of dill? This scramble was SO good it didn’t need katsup, salt, or hot sauce! Can you even imagine that? I never thought I would see the day. I wasn’t even looking forward to that day, but let me tell you I will gladly have it roll around again.

Here she is on the plate with my homemade hashbrowns:

 

The lucky scramble mingles with hashbrowns.

Hot damn!

I’m not posting any recipes right now, but if you ask nicely I might cough one or two up.
