This fruit salad (like most fruit salads, right??) is very simple to throw together and oh so tasty. The use of avocados, mangoes, and bananas only adds to the extra creamy deliciousness.
Speaking of deliciousness: VeganMofo is still going strong!! But my google reader may not survive this one. It is so chock full of awesome vegan eats, it just may explode. Seriously, I have got a lot of catching up to do!
It is in hectic (and yummy) times like these, that a nice easy fruit salad is the perfect treat to whip up. So easy, so sweet, so good.
Undeniably, nog is one of my most favorite things about winter. And even though I appreciate the prepackaged vegan nogs that are available this time of year, I find them somewhat lacking in flavor and in texture. So, I opt to make my own… and keep the other stuff around for a dire emergency.
Yes, I do like nog that much.
Here’s a simple pumpkin nog recipe that satisfies my most intense winter night cravings. Delicious with or without booze. :)
I don’t know how I would make it through an entire VeganMoFo without having a survey or two to bail me out on my days when I can’t properly blog. Keri from “I Eat Trees” posted this little gem the other day, so I jumped on the chance to use up one of my “lazy cards”.
A while back (like a LONG while back) I was contacted by the friendly folks at Luna and Larry’s asking if I would be interested in doing a product review of their Coconut Bliss ice cream. Oh, man… was I ever!
If you already happen to have some roasted squash lying around, this recipe is extremely simple, and if you don’t— roasting up a squash only adds a thin layer of complexity to the dish. I enjoy making these types of dinners – especially when I am having a “lazy” day. Which, happens more often than not around my kitchen. :)
This stew is perfect comfort food, and it makes enough to serve a hungry family of four.
If you love hummus and have never had the pleasure of using it as a base for your pizza, I highly recommend trying it out. It works especially well with roasted peppers and an abundance of ingredients. I decided to roast my own peppers and make my own crust, so I opted for the deli-bought hummus -high in cumin content. The more flavorful the hummus the yummier the pizza. The crust recipe below compliments the hummus quite nicely. But feel free to save lots of time by purchasing crust, hummus, and roasted peppers in lieu of making your own. I am happy to say that this pizza was a sensation last night for dinner.
Today I had an overwhelming craving for something cinnamony. I also had some freshly purchased raw Spanish peanuts sitting on my kitchen counter. Even though I have made peanut brittle many, many times, I had never thought to change the recipe even the teensiest bit. So, I went all out and added cinnamon.
I know. I am terribly creative.
I realize that vegan peanut brittle isn’t exactly hard to come by, nor am I the slightest bit unique in thinking of adding such a common spice to such a common candy. But, if you have never tried it before, do so. It is really, really good.
