Calzones made with pizza dough from Vegan with a Vengeance, Field Roast Italian sausages, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, Follow Your Heart mozzarella cheese, and tomato sauce – yum! Not much more to say but if you haven’t tried to make vegan calzones, give it a try, they re easy and delicious.
Here is just random food porn from the week – cupcakes of course and some puff pastry filled with leftover cupcake filling.

Pistchio Rosewater Cupcakes
If you haven’t tried these babies from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, I highly recommend them – they’re fantastic! I made them for a friend’s birthday and they were gone in a flash.
Espresso Cream Puff Pastry
Cappuccino cupcake with espresso cream and a chocolate ganache topping, nothing more needs to be said!
This picture makes me laugh – it looks as if the cupcake is saying – eat me! Or maybe that is just my sick mind…
Have a great weekend.

To mark the start of spring, among other things, I decided to make lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting. The cupcake recipe is from Vegan with a Vengeance and the frosting is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.
Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream
The liners are from Wilton and they are called “Fuzzy Bunny“! Here’s another shot:
The gf piped the frosting in a zigzag pattern and it turned out awesome (I was feeling lazy and actually let her help for the first time!). Did I say how much I liked these liners…
Fuzzy Bunny Liners
Oh, and we actually did eat some food today aside from the cupcakes
I made breakfast potatoes (onions, garlic, and rosemary) and Tofu Scramble (Vegan With A Vengeance) with Field Roast Apple Sage Sausages
. I tried to make the Hollandaise sauce from Vegan Yum Yum
- the taste was great but the consistency was a bit off. I think it was that I couldn’t seem to get my almonds ground up enough in the food processor.
Tofu Scramble with Hollandaise
Overall a great vegan food day!
I have to admit that breakfast/brunch is easily my favorite meal category. I’ve always loved to wake up on the weekends and make a big scramble with potatoes, eggs, veggies, and practically everything in the fridge, throw it in a tortilla, add hot sauce and I’m happy! I thought those days were over now because I am not eating eggs or cheese anymore. Much to my surprise, I am happy to report that is not the case – enter the tofu scramble!
So being a vegetarian for years and dining at a lot of vegetarian/vegan restaurants in LA, I am not going to sit here and tell you that I’ve never had tofu scramble, and good ones at that. I just have never made them myself. Wow was I surprised when I followed the super easy recipe in Vegan With A Vengeance for Tofu Scramble. Not only did it look like scrambled eggs, it tasted and had the texture of them too and its cruelty free! And as an added bonus, nutritional yeast tastes like cheese! I was in heaven! Take a look:
I had it with Field Roast’s
Smoked Apple Sage sausages and toast. It all tasted fantastic and while I was taking the pictures I just wanted to eat it! Here’s a close-up:
What I really liked about this recipe is that it can be very easily changed up by adding different veggie/herbs/spices combos. I can’t wait to experiment! But just following the basic recipe it is really, really good. I mean I took the pictures, put the camera down and hoovered it! I can’t quite remember if I chewed before swallowing let alone be mindful of what I was doing – good thing I was alone… Here’s the result after several seconds if I recall correctly:
Looking at the pictures again is making me hungry! I need to run to the store to get some tortillas… Til next time.
