i've missed you all SO MUCH and am so sorry i haven't been present enough on this blog. i really appreciate everyone's patience and understanding. i know i don't have to explain myself since i'm bizzay chasing around 2 small children, working full-time, and cooking up a big mess of food for us hungry folks.
i love kitsch spellin'. when it comes to vegan food, there's plenty of it. point in case: burgerz. the "z" is because it's fake and that's fine with me. let those cows roam the fields. a cow would probably like this burger and wonder how the hell i made such a fine sandwich. i took a recipe for walnut oatmeal burgers i was given at the local food bank and made some additions with spices and lentils. the result was a very tasty crunchy patty that i happily topped with avocado. no real recipe, but you could take just about any lentil loaf recipe and make patties out of it and get a good vegan burger. i kicked it up a notch and rolled this baby in some crushed up triscuits. i greased a cookie sheet, turned the oven up to 350, baked for 10 on each side, and they were good. brought some into work for the omni/vegetarian set and all were thoroughly impressed. they'd probably be really rockin' fried, but i wanted to be a bit healthier.

here's another gem from veganomicon : banana chocolate chip bread pudding. i don't think i made it wet enough, so it was kind of solid, but damn was it good. the leftovers got a little soggy and they were even better. this was made some time ago, so it's probably not a good dish to make in the heat of the summer. since this is a cupboard cleaner dessert, it is easy and ideal to make for a potluck. everyone else will just think you spent hours making it.

i think i've found a way to manage more posts. i've really been doing a ton of stuff in the kitchen, so i've been taking pics and making drafts so i can just type the narrative when i have some free time. in our next fun entry, i'll show off some dishes from american vegan kitchen, which is turning out to be my favorite cookbook of the year.

HOLY WOW. I love veggie burgers so much and these look like they are delicious! But could anything be better than that bread pudding? I'll take seconds please!
