Yes, you word police, I know "veganness" isn't a word but this is my blog and for this post it is most definitely a word. Now let's get on with this, shall we?
I know I am not alone when I say that I find my fellow bloggers to be some of the most thoughtful and nicest people on the triple w. Jessica from Awesome. Vegan. Rad. was so kind to send me some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies which are an excellent fall treat, if I do say so myself. If you love pumpkin, this cookie is for you, my friend. Jessica got the recipe from Have Cake, Will Travel which has a lot of yummy looking vegan recipes so go check it out! Check both blogs out! But wait! At least have the courtesy to finish reading my post first, there will be plenty of time to check out both of those blogs later.
While we are on the subject of pumpkin, let me say that you absolutely HAVE to make these pumpkin cinnamon rolls from Don't Eat Off the Sidewalk! We had them as a Saturday morning treat and they were absolutely divine. The pumpkin doesn't come through a whole lot so even if you don't think you like pumpkin, make these and you will not be disappointed! I made them the night before all the way up to the second rise then just put them in the fridge until morning and baked them. I added some cinnamon and cardamom to the icing to give it a little extra pop and I am already planning on making them again! I also made a tofu scramble to go along side so that I wouldn't feel like my breakfast was a complete sugar rush.
Sunday morning breakfast was another hit although on the savory side this time. Vegan sausage gravy and biscuits! I made the biscuits from Veganomicon and the sausage gravy I just made up in my head. I browned Gimme Lean sausage and added fennel and lots and lots of black pepper. Then I added in some flour and soymilk and just let it thicken up. I used to eat real sausage gravy all the time as a child and this blows that grease-laden mess out of the water.
Look at this big, beautiful bread I made. I love being all domestic and stuff.
Lastly, here are two dinners that my husband prepared for me so that I could get a semi-break from the kitchen. I say semi because I can't completely stay out of the kitchen. I always have to be making something.
Here is mac and "cheese" and roasted brussels sprouts and a hummus plate. He even took the pics!
Okay, now you are free to go check out the above mentioned blogs. Go on.
