Things I've Made Lately

Other than working my way through Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and Veganomicon (which will take me a number of years) I've made a couple of things from some newly-acquired cookbooks.

The Urban Vegan

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup - Kid-friendly and full of Vitamin A. Very easy beyond chopping root vegetables.

Spaghetti Alle Melanzane - This is my kind of comfort food. Savoury tangy eggplant tossed with pasta. Delicious after a long run.

Triple Sesame Salad Dressing - A creamy-salty-tangy dressing without any associated garlic breath. This was so yummy atop an avocado-sprout green salad.

Quiche Du Jour (Spinach & Sun-dried Tomato Combo) - Excellent crust. Tasty but my quiche didn't set.

Better Than Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries - Hearty healthy pancakes that didn't give me a sugar high. Used spelt flour.

Brownie Bites - Tasted awesome but were too delicate to get out of the muffin tin (both silicone and sprayed teflon). So I served brownie crumble topped with vanilla soy ice cream. Nobody complained.

Citrus-Scented Blueberry Muffins - I love muffins. These were light and fluffy.

Lorna Sass' Complete Vegetarian Kitchen

Hot and Zesty Black Bean Soup - So easy and so good! Packed with protein, which I had been craving.

I have a very long list of other recipes from these two books that I'd like to try. Most of the recipes are fairly straight-forward, which I appreciate after a long day of working and running.

Hi Tracy and Sarah! I love your ladies blog, its amazing. I'm just starting a blog and i was just wondering, how you created the list on the right hand side of your blog? Thanks :)

Tracy said...

Hi robynrheaa! The list on the left is a Blogger Gadget. If you use Blogger, you can configure it on the Layout page, accessible from the Dashboard.

Thank you, but can I ask you what gadget? I have been trying a lot of different gadgets and I can't seem to figure it out! Thank you for helping me!

Tracy said...

It's called the "Link List" gadget. Good luck with your blog!

sweet site. vegan with salad is my favorite.
I love all kind of Salad. It make my skin brighter and healthy. Especially, I can eat salad with many favorite foods. Like cucumber, youghurt, snack, and pasta or noodles. But I’m avoiding eating too much carbohydrate. Now, I don’t need to do that. Because I found this new product called Happy Pho by this company called Star Anise Foods – it’s a tasty Vietnamese brown rice noodles soup that I’m literally addicted to. They also have a noodles only box that I’ve been using instead of pasta. You can get them at or grocery stores in Northern California. Yum!
