Vcon & Vbrunch festivus

Over the past few months, I've made some delicious Isa/Terry recipes.

Veganomicon

bean balls. I'm probably the last person to try this recipe. They were really good, but a bit mushy. I think some breadcrumbs or something like that would fix that.
Apricot BBQ Sauce w/ Tofu. This is a delicious messy way to eat tofu. Not my first or last time making this sauce. It's not spicy at all, so add some if you like it that way.

The same sauce, but w/ seitan - which is even better than the tofu version.

Vegan Brunch

Vanilla pancakes. They aren't kidding, these have a ton of vanilla in them, but are oh so good. to the left is a super blueberry banana soy guava smoothie.

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins. lots o' lemon in these. They weren't really fluffy muffins, but more dense. They didn't last long.
Pumpkin French Toast. This was the first time making this recipe and it was good. I put in lots less clove than called for and didn't soak the bread that long. Also, it wasn't a crusty husk like called for. Perfection. The second time, I followed the recipe exactly and it was too clovey and the batter (?) didn't soak evenly. So lesson is that I need to not follow recipes so closely :)

Welcome to my closet of boxes. This was the one door that I thought I could safely open w/out cats being able to squeeze into. That was the case for the past 5+ years. Chippy decided that was long enough.

PS. Hillside Quickies is opening a new restaurant, Plum. I can hardly wait.

Everything looks really good to me, but I'm super stuffed, having just gotten home from a fantastic vegan meet-up dinner, so it's a little hard to be excited by food. If I ever eat again, I'd like to try that pumpkin french toast.

A new Quickie's? Where?

Yum, I'm loving Vegan Brunch at the moment. So far my faves are banana flapjacks, broccoli quiche and the omelet - yum.

Nope, you're not last! I haven't made the beanballs yet either! I'm lazy and making balls out of food seems....like it takes too long or something :P They look good though, I think I need to get off my bottom and make them!

And I REALLY need to make some of that Apricot BBQ Sauce!!! I've only just recently discovered the deliciousness of making your own!

I've not tried the Beanballs either! Those look delicious - it all does.
Your closet must be cat paradise! Chippy looks like he's in box heaven!

I've made those beanballs too and also thought they were a little mushy! They're good though so I let it slide.

I just bought vegan brunch, there's so many great looking recipes in it, I can't wait to dig in.

What is it with cats and boxes? Some weird attraction thing going on there.
