Catching Up with Vegan MoFo, day 28: Brunch!

The MoFo prompt for day 28 calls brunch “the under appreciated get-together meal”, but only half that sentence is actually true in our house. A get-together meal? Definitely! Brunch is almost always better when shared with friends, whether it be at a restaurant or homemade brunch shared around your dining room table. But under-appreciated? No way! We LOVE brunch! Brunch has been my favorite meal for my entire adulthood, and I can’t imagine that ever changing. I’m not sure we could appreciate brunch any more than we already do – but we’ll keep trying!

Are waffles the best brunch food? Trick question! All brunch foods are the best brunch foods.

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 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.

Chicken enchilada dip and pizza dip – just two of the reasons Mike calls me the Dip Queen of the Vegan Scene (I’m not, but that sure is cute).

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.

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 20 – Deconstructed Dish

Deconstructed?

That’s not really a word we’re used to throwing around in these parts. I mean, why take apart a perfectly good dish?! We’re far more likely to build a casserole than to neatly arrange small bits of food in a semi-circle. But, you know what? Sometimes, it pays to try something new. Continue reading

All stories are better if you read them in Sophia Petrillo’s voice

Our intrepid bloggers have been dating for just four weeks. Everything is new. Everything is terrifying. Despite the anxiety, Mike doubles down on the terror and invites Sarra to his house for a home cooked meal. Now, you have to keep in mind that at this time, Mike was still an omnivore. So, what does an omnivore that is falling madly in love with a vegan do about cooking dinner? Well, in this case, he selects the most easily veganizable dish he can think of!
