I made the Carrot Pineapple Sunshine Muffins yesterday and they are soooo good! Very moist and tasty. Lots of different flavor elements. In fact, I am going to make another batch as soon as these are gone, which won't take too long, since I still have more pineapple left. I think I'll add some walnuts next time since I love nuts in my baked goods.



So far I have been in heaven with the muffin recipes I've tried from Veganomicon and VwaV.

Thanks for the offer. Though I've never been to Pensacola, I know all about it. I had family and friends stationed there for awhile. From everyone I know I've heard it's not the most fun place to be (to say it nicely, lol). But the rest of Florida is beautiful and lots of fun!

Everything is up in the air for us right now. He's getting out. Can you believe it?! In the middle of all this economic craziness he's gonna get out. I'm so glad cause I've wanted him out since the get-go but it's an awful time to go changing game-plans. We might move back west, which would involve renting/selling this house, and of course moving cross country. He wants to go back to school and be close to his family but I love my job and my family and friends are all here. It's insane really. Then last week he gets a job offer in DC but ended up turning it down. So truly, I have no idea where I'll be in 6 months. Might be here, might be in WA, Dubai, DC- no clue. See? totally up in the air, lol. So I'm right there with ya, Babe

I just had the spicy tempeh nori rolls, and they were great! Though I added too much sesame oil - I didn't have the spicy oil, so I mixed sesame oil with chili paste, but when I added it to the tempeh and tasted it, it wasn't spicy. So silly me, instead of adding ONLY more chili paste, I added more paste mixed with oil, and then it was spicy enough but too sesame-y . But it was really good! I also made a caramelized tofu roll and some all veggie rolls. I haven't made homemade sushi in a long time, so this was awesome!

I finally got this from the library! I'm definitely making the chickpea cutlets. What else should I make? I'll have to look through this long thread, too lol.

I recommend the garlic saffron rice as a great side dish!



Also pretty much any of the desserts. The fudgy wudgy blueberry brownies are to die for! And the chocolate-chocolate chip walnut cookies. Seriously good. I made some of these for a chocolate bake sale at work, and they were gone within half an hour!



I really love the acorn squash and black bean empanadas, though they do take a bit of time to make.



I've heard GREAT things about the penne vodka from Danakscully but haven't tried it yet (I need to pick up some vodka!).



Most of the recipes are great! In fact, you should just go and photocopy the whole book before you have to bring it back to the library

Thanks, I'll be sure to try those all out!



Heheh I'd like to! I've been looking through it and it looks fantastic. I'll have to at least write down some recipes and perhaps purchase it at a later date. I'm actually excited to cook!

Here are the recipes I've made in picture form. For me, I like to see pictures rather than read recipes. I'm visual, nothing "reads" great to me, pictures make me



Abbey's right, the Penne Vodka is something I LOVE. It's also VERY easy to make and you can keep all of the ingredients on hand.

I made the Saffron Garlic rice last night to go with Chili Cornmeal Crusted Tofu and my own version of sweet potato fries. Delicious, delicious, delicious. The items complimented each other quite well. My bf especially loved the rice. So freaking simple. There's something about the addition of almonds to rice that is just awesome. I think I may be making the rice again before the week is done since the first batch got devoured. We stuffed ourselves silly.



I've been having focusing issues with *both* of my cameras so I haven't been able to take pics. Sucks too since our plates looked so purty last night. Maybe I'll try again to get pics of the tofu since there's a few pieces of that left, surprisingly.

I served them with guacamole, but they were perfect by themselves.

MMM those look so good! I made mine into circles because I thought it was easier than squares. I found the instructions "roll the dough into an 8x12 rectangle" laughable - who can roll dough into a rectangle? Mine always ends up shaped like an amoeba LOL. So I figured if I would have to reroll it anyway to make it into a square, I might as well cut circles and be done with it. Aren't they awesome?? They're one of my favourite things from V'con so far.

*raises hand* When I get my dough to be as big as I want it, I just fold the sides into straight edges (fold the dough in) and roll it out briefly (if that makes sense).



They were VERY yummy and easier than I thought they were going to be. Definately a keeper recipe

Even hot pockets? "There is the vegetarian Hot Pocket for those of us who don't want to eat meat, but still would like diarrhea."

Hmm, good point. Let's just say that the bf is always joking how I should live in Greece or Mexico b/c I always go for pocket or wrap style foods.

I'm the same way... I like foods with crust (pot pies especially). Anything full of fat, I LOVE Honestly though, the crust wasn't too bad. The recipe made a lot and I was able to feel full after eating just one (paired with broccoli).

Making the empanadas today! I already finished the acorn squash baking part, lol. I figured that takes a lot of time away from what I have to do later. Maybe I can make them up and bake them and just heat up again at dinner time?

YAY! Yes, you can do that. I just nuke mine in the microwave for 30 seconds, then transfer them to the toaster oven.
