I recently bought some Gouda Style Sheese from Rabbit Food Grocery (Austin’s vegan grocery store that I wrote about in this post). As an experiment to see how it would melt, I decided to make a polenta pizza. The Sheese didn’t get as goey and melty as Daiya cheese gets, but the pizza turned out […]

Yay Halloween! Time for costumes and pumpkins and other fun things. This Halloween was especially fun and we hosted a pumpkin carving party at our place. Once the jackolanterns have been made, many people just roast the seeds and toss all the guts away. This is an incredible waste because pumpkin innards are edible and delicious. […]

Check out these vegan finger cookies my friend, Lilli, made for our Halloween Party. They’re made with homemade bread and almonds and I think they’re pretty amazing!

And we had green beans, broccoli, grilled mushroom and onions, lemonade and orange juice. I’ve been wanting to make vegan chicken […]

It’s important to remember that the margarine should be very cold when it’s combined with the dry ingredients (salt, baking powder, flour). The colder the margarine, the flakier the biscuits. For this reason, it’s best to combine the […]

Sorry for the long hiatus. Here’s a fun picture of a cookie cake I made this weekend for my sister’s birthday. I made two different types of cookie dough (this one and this one). Then I got carried away with the icing and blueberries, and it ended up looking like a bunch of evil eyes.

I don’t feel like writing, so I’m just going to post this pretty picture. My friend made this for breakfast the other day. Not sure what all was in it – he mentioned something about flax seeds, hempseed oil, asafoetida powder, and beets. It was good!

My coworker introduced me to this site. It’s an Indian cooking blog (all veggie, mostly vegan) and with beautiful food photos. I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet, but hopefully I will soon. https://www.nandyala.org/mahanandi

I’m not very good at posting sequentially after each potluck – I just post photos as I come across them. Here is one I came across recently from the stuffed food potluck we hosted a while ago. Everyone made such amazing food that night. We had stuffed mushrooms, stuffed chard leaves, stuffed tomatoes, stuffed peppers, […]
