Fluffy Biscuit Topped Veg Pot Pie {plus related recipe}

Now that the holidays are over (I hope everyone had a good time) and things have settled down a little, I decided I wanted a simple, tasty, warm meal. Pot pie was the only logical answer, especially with a biscuit baked on top.  Happy New Year everyone and may your year be full of good [vegan] food.

[Microwave] Sponge Cake in a Mug with a Side of Fruit

I am a huge fan of brownie in a mug, so I thought I’d expand a little. This makes a great, quick dessert that you don’t have to invest hardly any time into. Plus, mugs are fun to eat out of, so don’t blame me if you start eating out of a mug full time.

Fresh Strawberry and Mixed Berry Banana Walnut Muffins

Every once in a while I’ll make muffins for the weekly snack. Sometimes I have a few leftover that we just didn’t get around to. Then these came along. I had a few overly ripe, (almost too ripe) bananas that needed taking care of. Also a few fresh strawberries, and about a cup of frozen mixed berries that were in the way. There had to be some way to make a muffin out of all of it, right? Absolutely right. We had zero leftover muffins last week.

Carrot Cake from The Hungry Husky

I found this interesting blog on Reddit a while back. I took one look and decided then and there that I would make and devour this carrot cake. Unfortunately, I got sick the next day and it lasted for two weeks. As soon as I felt up to it though, I made this amazing cake and enjoyed it until the last bite.

Spooky Ginger Cookies

I made about 30 of these last night. I gave Justin the choice between chocolate or ginger cookies.. even though I knew he’d choose ginger hands down. I then remembered I had some cute little cookie cutters from halloween last year. They worked beautifully with this dough. It’s firm and doesn’t spread while baking hardly at all. Justin loved them, and even though I wanted the chocolate ones, I ended up being happy in the end.

Eggplant Patties

Before the idea of becoming vegan came true, I never ate eggplant. I thought it was too complicated and bitter. Well, I cooked it once and fell in love. You can do a whole menu of tasty eggplant dishes, and most of them are super easy. That said, I made this simple recipe two nights ago when I made some coconut curry, and it paired so well I’ll probably make it again next week.

General Tso Style Tofu with Broccoli

I don’t make this dish very often, but when I do I completely enjoy it.  For this dish, I always drain and press my tofu the night before, freeze it, bake it, and then fry it. That’s not hard at all, but it can be time consuming. It definitely has a more ” meaty ” texture and is not so mushy if you take the time to prepare it that way, though. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
