Vegan Beef (Mushroom) Stroganoff

Vegan Beef (Mushroom) Stroganoff

I love garlic.  So much that earlier this week I attempted to make a recipe for 2 people with 8 cloves of garlic.  It was not successful. In this recipe I used 6 cloves of garlic.  As I was chopping them up, I thought about how I could call this something awesome like “Vampire Repellant”.

Yesterday two things happened.  I wore long sleeves, and I put in the Gilmore Girls DVDs. I realize this probably means nothing you you.  To me, this means Fall is coming. I know I get enthusiastic about fall a little early.  Like, as soon as September hits I start suggesting we go apple picking, eat

I grew up watching the TGIF tv lineup on Friday night.  Yep, I am a child of the 90s!  I had a t shirt that changed colors in the sun and lots and lots of scrunchies. One of the shows I loved watching on TGIF was Boy Meets World.  I think it was hard not

I first became a vegetarian when I was about 13.  I grew up going to sleep away camp in New Hampshire every year, and one year I made this friend who everyone thought was the coolest girl ever.  She was a vegetarian, and so from then on I was too.  That pretty much lasted until

I am convinced cabbage is some kind of miracle food that somehow regenerates when I am not looking.  I feel like I haven’t bought cabbage in weeks, but somehow I still always have a half of a cabbage in my fridge. I really can’t complain since it is so healthy, and also keeps so well.  And

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup

I am not always super upbeat and positive, but I really try to see the positive, and to be positive.  Because there really is a rainbow from every rain and all that stuff Sesame Street always tried to teach you. So while winter is cold, and can start feeling long, I am taking time to

Sweet Potato Pancakes (vegan)

Usually I do a lot of planning for my recipes.  I plan what I am going to make and how, and what I am going to serve it with.  For the braised cabbage recipe I posted Monday, I had made that several times for myself just because I really like sitting down to enjoy a

Acorn Squash and Caramelized Onion Pizza (vegan)

Why are caramelized onions so good on pizza!?  It’s crazy how good the combo is. I am revving up for Thanksgiving here behind the scenes, putting together a 2013 menu that is maybe the easiest recipes I have ever done for a holiday.  I am super excited to share it. Since that will be dominating

I think I am a closet anglophile.  Though perhaps I don’t keep it as hidden as I think I do. If something is British, there is a pretty good chance I am going to love it.  Like, Jamie Oliver is my hero, Harry Potter is one of my all time favorite books, Doctor Who is

Oktoberfest Quinoa

In my quest to make the most of the amazing fall season, I went to an Oktoberfest this past weekend.  It was clear that for many the main focus was to celebrate the season by drinking the largest possible volume of beer.  Now, I don’t drink much, but I actually did have a beer at

Vegetarian Leek and Gruyere Risotto

I kind of disappeared from the internet world last week.  It was for the best reason… Hubby and I went to Disney World!! He had a conference for work down there, and I got to tag along (and frolic around in my favorite place ever!). I think I am likely going to be talking about

I am “back” from my staycation, and boy was it awesome.  I think the fact that I read 2 whole books in a few days is a pretty good indication of how amazing and relaxing the time off was.  I needed it because it had been so long since I had been able to devour
