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.

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.

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 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:
