Calzone Night

Calzone

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.

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.

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.

Vegan Cheese!

Pepper Crusted Cashew Goat Cheese

So as my tag line says, I love cheese and that has been my biggest challenge going vegan. I know there are many vegan “cheese” alternatives but all leave much to be desired. Much to my surprise and delight,  the April issue of Vegetarian Times  has several vegan cheese recipes and I jumped at the chance to try them. The one thing I can tell you about making nut cheeses is patience. They are not labor intensive but you need to have the patience to soak the nuts overnight, let it sit for 12 hours… Well, I can assure you the patience pays off! This cheese really does have the consistency of a soft spreadable cheese and has all the qualities I always enjoyed from cheese!

I joked around with the gf and told her when she came home tonight she might find me passed out, comatose, with an empty cracker box and a butter knife on my lap, this might indeed be the case…
If you like cheese and are vegan, I highly recommend you seach out this issue of VT and make some nut cheese!
