Chili Cheese Dogs

Tofu Pups, Amy’s spicy chili, and Daiya cheddar “cheese”. I didn’t have any buns so I just had them on a plate.

English Muffin Pizzas

I made mini pizzas from gf English muffins! I used pizza sauce, Daiya mozzarella, and topped them with some onions and broccoli. I just popped these bad boys in the toaster for a just a couple minutes. Amazingly yummy. Daiya is so fantastic!

Recreating old favorites to be vegan and gluten-free

Everyone knows these, right?

Like pretty much everyone ever, I loved these. And I have found a way to make something that tastes just like them!

The format is different (ie no actual cone) but I think the taste is there. Vanilla ice cream topped with rice Chex cereal, Reese’s peanut butter sauce, and chocolate fudge sauce. It’s close enough for me!

Cinnamon Apple Buckwheat Muffins

These muffins are wooonderful. I originally decided to try this recipe because I’d never baked with buckwheat before, and it looked very simple. Well, the batter was simple, but peeling a large apple takes forever! Next time I make these muffins I’m going to try blueberries instead of apples, I think that will work well. I altered the recipe a little bit – I used 1 tbsp of cinnamon instead of 1 tsp, 2 cups of apples instead of 1.5, and I ended up with enough batter for 13 muffins instead of 12. Another change I made was to bake them for a little longer – 29 minutes instead of 25.

I put the 13th muffin in paw-shaped muffin cup I got for free from The Animal Rescue Site. A paw shaped muffin, adorable!! I ate two of these muffins right out of the oven with a little Earth Balance. They’re pretty healthy and delicious, a perfect breakfast muffin!

Tonight for dinner I made my usual sauted chard with onions and garlic, plus something new! Last Thanksgiving my husband’s mom made roasted parsnips for dinner. I’d never had parsnips before, but I loved them. I never got around to actually buying some and cooking them myself until now. And oh boy, I can only describe them with WOW. Very very yummy.

Chard, onions, and garlic on the left. Parsnips on the right.

Parsnips recipe!

– 1 lb of parsnips (1 bag) cut into small sticks
– 2 tbsp Earth Balance
– Nutmeg
– Brown sugar

In a medium saucepan melt the Earth Balance and add the nutmeg and brown sugar (I just threw some in without measuring, so add to taste). Add the parsnips, stirring to coat all with the buttery sauce and cover. Let them cook for around 5-10 minutes until they’re soft, stirring periodically. Eat and enjoy!

Brownie Sundae

One of the fudge brownies topped with Trader Joe’s vanilla soy ice cream, chocolate fudge, and peanut butter sauce. YUM!

Chocolate Fudge Coffee Brownies

I used this recipe and added two tablespoons of instant coffee. Unfortunately, the coffee flavor wasn’t very strong at all and I wanted them to scream COFFEE in each bite. Oh well, I’ll try again later with more added, or maybe some coffee extract. They were still delicious though! Also, an important note. In my last recipe I used a different kind of chocolate chips (I forget what it was) then in the recipe and this time I used the Enjoy Life rice milk chocolate chips that the recipe calls for. I was surprised to find they were actually the cheapest chocolate chips at the store (I got them at a local co-op). So in addition to being dairy and soy-free, that’s another plus!
