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!

Vegan MoFo, Day 25, Cook for your Best Friend

When I was a teenager, my mom hung a cross-stitch on the wall that read “Happiness is being married to your best friend.” I thought it was so cheesy at the time (get it, it’s cheese week, haha!), but it turns out that little piece of craft work had it all figured out. Being married to your best friend is really amazing. We love to spend time together, and it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, it’s always so much better together. Continue reading

Vegan MoFo, Day 23 – Fancy AF

It is time to go gourmet as we start off cheese week! Today, I’m here to show off our haute cuisine – something that will make you say, “Now that’s some fancy business!”

I’ve said it in just about every post this MoFo, but it always seems to be true. This meal started at the Farmer’s Market! We found some black garlic at Garden Treasures, one of our favorite vendors. We’ve never cooked with it before, so we asked the proprietor how to use it. He told us that it didn’t need to be cooked – just peel it and eat it, and boy was he right. Let me tell you how that small idea turned into a fancy AF dinner.
