Moving right along….
We are getting settled into our new place. I will post pictures of the kitchen next time. We have great neighbors and an awesome landlord. Our neighbor brought us vegan cupcakes from a local bakeshop and our landlord brought us eggplant and tomatoes from her organic garden as well as figs and pecans from her trees. It is definitely making the transition easier.
Thursday I created a recipe for baked cake donuts. We jokingly call them “Unholy Cake Donute” because we don’t have a donut pan and had to use a muffin pan. They were delicious! The boys loved them, all three. Here is the recipe for you to enjoy.
Unholy Cake Donuts
2t baking powder
1t apple cider vinegar
1/2c soy yogurt
2T margarine, softened
1c powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease a donut pan or muffin pan. In a small bowl, combine the soymilk and vinegar and set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients. Add the soured milk, yogurt, and margarine. Stir until blended. Pour the batter into the donut pan or muffin pan, filling each cup 2/3 full. Bake 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes and then place on a baking rack. Yield: 1 ½ dozen donuts.
For the glaze:
Blend all the ingredients in a small bowl. Dip each donut in the glaze. Serve. You can also add sprinkles or toasted coconut to your donuts.

Last night I felt like making us cookies. The local grocery co-op makes amazing cashew butter cookies. I thought I would replicate the recipe and figure out all of the ingredients. Well, I did and they were delicious. And a lot cheaper that $1.25-1.50 per cookie. We call them, “Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies”. They were so tasty with a ice cold glass of soymilk.
This week I made our Spicy Summer Curry recipe. It is spicy and sweet. I especially love the homemade seitan and mango in this dish. Little Bear loved it. He is our spicy baby.
It is still warm here. And when I mean warm I am talking in the 100s F. It is supposed to be 105F next week. Meh. Josh wanted a cool dish so I made a udon noodle bowl. It hit the spot. Cool and refreshing. The boys liked it too.
We also grilled some portabellos and made burgers. Yum. It was so good with fresh avocado. We also made sweet potato fries, not pictured.
I also made quesadillas for us. We made spinach, black bean, & Daiya cheese. I served it with a side of Spanish rice, mango pico, and roasted potatoes. It definitely hit the spot.
I also made a not so healthy, but pretty darn tasty Southern dish. I call this one, “Craig inspired”. Because it is something our friend Craig would inhale and ask for seconds. It is Southern and awesome like he is. All that’s missing was a ice cold beer. 🙂 It is a plate full of fried okra, Southern fried chickUN seitan fingers, mashed potatoes, and homemade cream gravy.
And of course the last meal for the post would be tacos. Oh how we love tacos. Such goodness.

Well, we are off to a potluck this evening that is part of the local vegetarian network. We are bringing our curried quiche with greens dish. YUM!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
peas and love….
