Catching Up with Vegan MoFo, Day 26: Showstopper Dessert

Another make-up post, squeaking in just under the wire (1 more hour until the end of MoFo on the west coast!). This was supposed to be from last week, but life and party prep got all lifey and stressful and we just didn’t get it done. I thought it’d make a nice Halloween dessert, so I made it today!

Vegan MoFo, Day 31: HALLOWEEN! (part 1)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I’ve talked about our Birthoween parties both here and on Instagram, and for this final MoFo Halloween prompt, I’m going to show you what I made for this year’s Birthoween party, which we threw this past Friday.

Monster snot! (Spooky queso with black beans, black olives, and home-canned rotel – and boo chips.)

Vegan MoFo, Day 30 – Practice run a dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or another upcoming holiday

We take Thanksgiving very seriously around here. I mean, when you love food as much as we do, you have to take the opportunity to make way, way too much of it and share it with your family!

Vegan MoFo, Day 27 (Catching Up) – Meals for the Young (at Heart)

We’re definitely playing catch-up today here at the Fake Meat & True Love house after a week of party planning, holding said party, and binge-watching the new season of Stranger Things. Thursday’s prompt was “Meals for the young (at heart)”. We wanted to pick something that we loved when we were young, but make it a bit more “grown up” and fancy.

For both Sarra and I, many a childhood meal consisted of fish sticks and macaroni and cheese. We both liked our fish sticks with ketchup, but Sarra usually skipped the ketchup if there was macaroni and cheese available, since she could dip the fish sticks right in the excess cheese sauce from the macaroni. We both loved it, and since it’s a classic slice of Americana on a plate, it’s still right up our alley. So then, how can we make it better? Well, read on to find out!

Vegan MoFo, Day 29 – History

Today’s prompt: History – What would you cook for your favorite historical figure? Well, our pick for this prompt leans a little more towards celebrity rather than historical, and by historical, we mean famous starting this time last year. Why are we twisting it so far? Well, we spent a large chunk of our weekend binge watching Season 2 of Stranger Things. The first season absolutely blew our minds, so we new that we would need to set aside time to watch it right away. I could go on and on, but we really should be talking about food here on our food blog. Continue reading

Catching Up with Vegan MoFo, day 21: Potatoes!

Making the humble potato the star of the show.

Yeah, this post was due 8 days ago. I know! But 8 days ago was Mike’s birthday. and even though I made this dish earlier that week, we were just too busy on the 21st for me to get it posted. In fact, we’ve been busy every day until today.

And this will be a fairly short one. Because I’d intended to post this on Mike’s birthday, I hadn’t planned to write much at all. But I did cook, and I did take photos – albeit poorly-lit ones!
