Nursery Rhyme Time

This little vegan went to market. This little omni stayed home. This little vegan had chocolate cake and a creme-filled cupcake. This little scavenger had none. This little vegan got 4 chocolate bars. And these little piggies got none. (Do you see a trend?)

Ethiopian = Yum

Pin It!

Just had the most amazing vegan Ethiopian food! See all of this food? This is the Vegetarian Sample Platter. By the time I was done, it was ALL gone (including the rather large sourdough crepe– called “injera”– on which the food was served). I also ate some of the veggies on my dad’s plate. I […]

Easy Meals

Pin It!

What do you serve on those days when you’re soooo busy with everything else that there’s no time to even think about—let alone make—a gourmet meal? The following are two recipes I know I can count on; they’re both easy, quick to make, and taste delicious. (Of course, stir fries and pasta marinara are two […]

Finally, my meme

Pin It!

I’ve loved learning more about some of the other bloggers out there, so now it’s my turn to share about me by listing a character trait for each letter of my first name– Katie. K is for kind. As a vegan, I guess this one is a given. In my life, I’ve rescued and nursed […]

My macaroni of choice tonight was Vitaspelt baby shells. I loved every bite (and sip)! And for dessert… Amazing homemade peanut butter cookies, baked […]

Mini Fat Free Tofu Quiches

Presenting the mini tofu quiches from fatfreevegan.com! I’m sure you’ve all seen these before on other blogs. If you haven’t made them yet, I highly recommend you do so (and you’ll want to make a double batch because these babies go fast)! Here they are, uncooked and ready to go into the oven. And here’s […]

Meet the Parents

Pin It!

My parents aren’t vegetarian, but they’ve been so supportive, over the years, of my lifestyle. They’re always up for tasting vegan food, and my soy-o-phobic mom recently switched to Silk in her coffee!!! I’m the luckiest girl in the world! I know I’m supposed to be the animal lover… but there’s NO WAY I’d let […]

I’m 21!!!!

I had an amazing 21st birthday… Maybe my favorite ever. Since this is a blog about veganism, the following pictures are of the vegan highlights of my day: I celebrated the day with HOT PINK strawberry cake! . I also had a glass of champagne.  I am 21, after all 😉

Will Ferrell is one smart Elf!

A quick post before I go out to do some more pre-birthday celebrating. No, I’m not the best photographer… but that doesn’t diminish the yumminess of my lunch today. I roasted up some veggies with a lot of garlic, salt, other spices, and a bit of pepper. Then I tossed in (errr, gently placed in) […]

The most important meal of the day

I like to experiment with my oatmeal, and the following recipe is the best experiment I’ve come up with so far (stay tuned)… . Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal Fusion Prepare a serving of oatmeal, using non-dairy milk […]
