Spud Lust Hungry Peasant Soup

Oi, my new work gig is keeping me busy. Last week the only new thing I managed to cook up was a batch of brownies, and while they prompted spontaneous ecstasies from people I’m more than happy to spontaneously ecstasy, I can’t really pass them off as my own. Head on over to Sweetest Menu…

Bean Lovers' Chili

Last week I promised chili to go with those ground corn muffins, so this week we have a hearty winter chili recipe that’ll have you lapping up all kinds of beans and liking it! Funny story … the Sprouts grocery store in my area had their canned beans displayed on an endcap, and I had…

Ground Corn Muffins

Sorry I’ve been AWOL for the past couple of weeks! I got an amazing if challenging new job writing up reports for an organization that does assessments for asylum cases, so my plate (so to speak) is a lot fuller. I had a few disappointing trysts with Yukon Gold potatoes in the meantime – I…

Smoked (Cauliflower) Head & Jammy Cheesy Tacos

Ok, so I didn’t manage to get this out on Tuesday, but who said tacos were only for Tuesdays? Tacos are for eating EVERY DAY, amirite? And there are so many ways to add variety and fun if you just get creative. These particular garden pockets came about after my impromptu lunch at a brand…

Come to Mama Vegan Lasagna

Today’s recipe title may make some of you think immediately of Lady Gaga, but Etta James recorded a much dirtier song by that name back when gaga was probably all the Lady had in her vocabulary. Call my number, 777-six-NINE-six-NINE, I’ll give you a fix. ‘Cause I’ve got your favorite toy, Guaranteed to bring you…

Nerdgasm Jedi (Root-Leaf) Stew

I hope everyone had a great holiday week! I didn’t manage to get a recipe out last weekend, although I did make some baked (instead of fried) potato latkes. They were good, but not stellar. That recipe still needs some tweaking. Speaking of stellar, however, last weekend was practically a national holiday for us sci-fi…

Scottish Fetish Vegan Scones (with a Light Currant)

Certain Anglo accents have the power to spawn whole fetishes unto themselves. Some people find posh English accents a huge aphrodisiac; others get hot and bothered over a broad-voweled outback drawl. For my part, I could turn James McAvoy reading the terms and conditions of my operating system into an entire sexual orientation. And don’t…

Sure Thing Minestrone

After the great American cookoff holiday this week and the last couple of new, more labor-intensive recipes, I thought I’d keep things uncomplicated and go back to one of my favorite easy one-pot staples, a crowd-pleasing soup that cooks who’ve been around the block a few times may take for granted but that really does…

Stuff a Vegan Savory Mushroom Stuffed Squash

American (U.S.) Thanksgiving is upon us this week, and that means it’s time for some hearty stuffing. (Our former countryfolk across the pond will know what I’m talking about, even if we’re more or less celebrating the beginning of our very messy breakup.) If there’s a special vegan in your life you’ve been wanting to…

Chocorrupted Pumpkin Pie

Before Thanksgiving rolled around I wanted to make something seasonal my high school BFF could make for dessert to share with her vegan sister-in-law, but also something wicked chocolatey as we both share an undying passion for chocolate (we could decimate a jumbo bag of M&Ms between us after school). At first I thought of…
