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)
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.Continue reading
Vegan MoFo, Day 24: Party!
We’ve got a lot going on lately! In fact, this week we happen to be preparing for a party we’re throwing this coming Friday night. Due to busy-ness, I decided to approach this prompt differently than I might otherwise have during a less busy week. Instead of making party food, I thought I’d showcase foods we’ve made for parties in the past.
Vegan MoFo, Day 22: Unconventional Grains
I know, there’s no post for day 21. There will be – I hope to make it up tomorrow. This weekend has had many things, most of them wonderful but one of them heartbreaking. I’ll tell you all more about them when I have more time tomorrow. For now, let’s talk about unconventional grains – well, one specifically.
Vegan MoFo, Day 18: CHOCOLATE!
Not just chocolate, friends. Chocolate and pumpkin!
Vegan MoFo, Day 17: Let’s Get Boozy!
We’ve both cooked with alcohol a fair bit (Mike probably more than I), but when it came down to it, there was only one choice for this prompt.
Vegan MoFo, Day 13: Sell Yourself!
If you were going to market a food you make, what would it be?
When I first read this prompt, I knew exactly what I was going to talk about: canned goods. Mike and I started canning farmer’s market produce a few years ago, and I’ve spent most of the past few summers preserving foods (this summer has been the exception). Here are just a few of the things we’ve canned:
Vegan MoFo, Day 10: Secret Ingredient!
Today’s challenge in Vegan MoFo-land is to talk about an unconventional ingredient or product that we use. Well, there is one secret ingredient that we discovered last year that we use just about every day. We’re talking about San Juan Island Sea Salt‘s Popcorn Blend (or “yellow salt” as we like to call it around the Fake Meat and True Love house)!
Vegan MoFo, Day 9: Go Go Gadget
A kitchen gadget we couldn’t live without? I thought a lot about which kitchen tool I’d pick for this prompt, but Mike had one answer and one answer only:
Vegan MoFo, Day 10 – Something Blue
I have seen so many creative blog posts today! I am loving the countless ways people chose to interpret this prompt! Mike and I talked about “thinking outside of the box” for this prompt – or, rather, outside of the blueberry. But last year, at the height of berry season (and after I had made our fill of jams), I canned a quart and a pint of blueberry pie filling. And while I knew I didn’t want to make a pie, I was eager to crack open one of those jars for this prompt. I also challenged myself to make something I’d never made before.
