Happy VeganMoFo!



Today marks the beginning of VeganMoFo 2009! The challenge is to blog about all things vegan food related daily for the whole month of October and I can’t think of a better way to start than vegan snickerdoodles! The recipe is from Vegetarian Times and can be found here. These are super easy and taste oh so yummy!

For more info about VeganMoFo head over to Kittee’s blog  for all of the details.

I had been neglecting the blog a bit because it was just too darn hot here in Los Angeles and I was feeling uninspired. Now that the weather is starting to cooperate I am totally excited for VeganMoFo and for the beginning of fall foods! While going through my photos today I found this pancake shot from a while back that I never posted. Pancakes with whole berry sauce from Vegan Brunch!



I am still testing for Terry Hope Romero’s Vegan Latina cookbook and the latest recipe I tried was Sweet & Salty Seitan and Potato Empanadas. These empanadas are so damn good – the dough is to die for and the filling is the perfect balance between sweet and spicy.


These are some of the best empanadas I have had! If I haven’t said it enough, this book is gonna rock the vegan world by storm! Here is a close-up of the inside:

The pictures don’t even do these justice because they are that good!
Well I guess that will do it for the 1st installment of VeganMoFo for me. Stay tuned for many more to come…heck, by the end of the month you might even be sick of me…

    Thank you for linking to the snickerdoodle recipe. I just tried Isa’s take on them and would love to attempt an original version, too. Mouthwatering pancakes and those empanadas are calling my name!

    Snickerdoodles are my most-requested cookies. I recently veganized my famous-within-my-circle (prevegan)recipe and am back to whipping these up for friends and family!
