Spicy BBQ and Cornbread December 30, 2009

Filed under: Food Talk — Kala @ 3:04 pm

Hmmm, we haven’t posted here in a while, December has been pretty busy!  But last night’s dinner was yummy enough for me to grab a camera so here we go.  All I knew last night was that I wanted cornbread, so I build dinner around that idea 🙂  I came up with yummy spicy bbq beans, onions, and seitan and it was delicious.  And went well with the cornbread!  There isn’t really a recipe for the sauce, there’s some tomato paste, ketchup, lots of chipotle peppers, maple syrup, and pepper.   



Chocolaty Crinkle Cookies December 9, 2009

Crinkle cookies are on of those things that we really only make around the holidays so that makes them extra special 🙂  This year, I tried the recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and they came out super awesome!  The only change I made to the recipe was that I subbed some Ener-G for the flax seeds because we never have flax around.  We even shared some with the neighbors ’cause we’re sweet like that 🙂

Professional cookie decorators we are not:

They may look like we made them with our feet but they sure are yummy!  They’re also really fun to make, baking and decorating gingerbread men is one of my favorite Christmas activities 🙂  We always use this awesome recipe from the ppk, love it, and we make at least 2 batches a season because they’re so good! 



Sushi, lunch of awesomeness! December 1, 2009

I think sushi just might be my favorite thing to have for lunch, especially when it’s homemade:

Plus it’s so fun to make even if we don’t make the most gorgeous rolls in the world 🙂
