Cookie Time!

Pin It!

. . . . . . . Christmas cookies made so far: 1. Chocolate-covered peanut butter balls (shown in yesterday’s post; good guess, Selina!) . . . . . . . 2. No-bake oatmeal cookies (adapted from this recipe, but without the nuts and with less sugar) . . . . . . . . […]

Handsome (Naked!) Men Invade my Kitchen

Pin It!

Gingerbread men, that is. Oooh, spicy! Naked gingerbread men, waiting to be clothed.  (Gives new meaning to the words “food porn” doesn’t it?) . . . . . . . . . . .. .   Gingerbread couples… all dressed up and nowhere to go. Feeling hot hot hot! . . . . . . […]

One little, Two little, Three little vegans…

Pin It!

Four little, Five little, Six little vegans… Who knew there were so many vegans in Dallas, Texas?! Starting this blog has been a blessing, because it’s enabled three other Dallas vegans to find me. Since I’d previously never met another vegan in Dallas, I knew we would *have to* get together! So one cool Friday […]

We want to be chocolate-covered, too!

Pin It!

It has come to our attention that Katie’s been making and eating lots of chocolate things lately… we do not appreciate being left out of all this chocolate-ness. Katie says that we can’t have chocolate because it is bad for doggies, but we believe Katie is simply being greedy and wants to keep all the […]

What’s with the lack of chocolate posts?!

Pin It!

I’m not living up to my title very well, am I? Rest assured that even though the Little Vegan isn’t posting about chocolate, she is still consuming it in ridiculously exorbitant quantities. Just in case anyone was worried ;o) But here’s a chocolate post for ya! My friend is from Ohio, so I decided to […]

The recipe that will make you say, "Grilled Cheese Who?"

Pin It!

For many years, I believed that a plain peanut butter and banana sandwich was the best thing ever invented. But that all changed during one creative hour in my kitchen… Ladies and Gentlemen, without further ado, I present to you the Sandwich of Dreams– layers of gooey peanut butter goodness, sweet, ripe banana, and plump, […]

Texas Caviar and Watermelon Salsa

Pin It!

. . . . . .. Amidst the mounds of brisket, ribs, pork-laden beans, and other offending foods you’ll find at the typical Texas barbecue, there’s one dish that is actually vegan. Here’s my family’s recipe for the dish known as Texas Caviar: Texas Caviar INGREDIENTS: 1-1/2 cups chopped, seeded tomato 1/3 cup thinly sliced […]

Taking a break from the food posts to show off my new stuff

Pin It!

When I saw this shirt at Urban Outfitters, I was jumping up and down in the store. (Maybe not the best way to discredit the stereotype that vegans are oddballs!)   Oooh-Aaah… I can use it to carry my groceries so I won’t waste paper/plastic :o). Cute bumper sticker– I don’t own this yet, but […]

Yet another Thanksgiving post

Pin It!

We’ve all been there– someone discovers that you’re a vegan and feels the need to shout it out to the world (or at least the room): “Hey everybody, look at the freak!” Suddenly you’re being bombarded with questions and comments from every direction. “How do you live on just salad greens?” “Don’t you miss good, […]

It’s NOT all about the pie

Pin It!

Something unfortunate happened that almost ruined my Thanksgiving. I had to stop and reflect and say to myself, “Katie, what is this day REALLY supposed to be about?”  The unfortunate “something” was the burning of a freshly-made apple pie. I peeled about 5 pounds of apples, cut them, seasoned them with sugar and all sorts […]

I'm Thankful for…

Pin It!

My wonderful family and friends, including all of you terrific bloggers… My amazing life… Being able to enjoy a delicious, cruelty-free Thanksgiving feast… And these two munchkin-heads ;o) Food pictures will be up soon!
