Lasagna Stoup

This recipe is actually a Rachel Ray recipe that I (easily) veganized. I think it's a great recipe for households with vegetarians and non-vegetarians trying to live in harmony OR for omnivores who are looking for some healthy alternatives. I say this because I'm well aware that not all things that are vegetarian/vegan taste as awesome to omnivores - especially any kind of mock "meat" or "cheese". But I have found that veggie grounds (among many other things!) are an excpetion to that. Whether it's spaghetti sauce or taco salad or whatever, veggie grounds are SO easily disguisable that no one will have to be scared that they're eating something vegetarian... We all know how frightening it can be! AND it's super delicious. I make this pretty often because it's easy, yummy, and makes great left-overs. And as a side note, you'll find that your left-overs will no longer be "stoup" - the lasagna noodles suck up all the liquid and it kinda just becomes plain ol' lasagna - but still very good!!

East Coast Coffee Cake

This recipe is, of course, from one of my favorites; Vegan Brunch. Matt and I recently had a day off together, and this doesn't happen very often so I decided to make something special for breakfast. I didn't feel like going to the store and so I just flipped through my recipe books until I found something that I had all of the indredients for. I really don't have a lot of personal experience in making or eating coffee cake, but I figured it had to be delicious so I gave it a whirl! OF COURSE it turned out AWESOME and the two of us literally finished off the whole batch in less than 24 hours.

Tempeh Helper

I got this recipe from Isa's Post Punk Kitchen Blog. I'm not going to bother re-typing the whole recipe, but I DID want to share with everyone how wonderful it was. When I first saw this recipe, I knew it was something that I had to make. I even e-mailed the recipe post to Matt just because I knew how much it would excite him. We both love homey recipes that remind us of stuff that we used to eat growing up, so I knew this would be perfect. And it was! Here are some more photos of my Tempeh Helper adventure:
