Aug 20


We’ve been planning on making these for days, but finally got around to it today. Not really sure how we managed to delay something as awesome as brownies, but it happened. I love pulling my baking recipes from The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. I had to modify the brownie recipe slightly since …

Black Bean Phyllo Wraps

If asked, I would say that black beans are our bean of choice around here. I like to prep one or two pounds in my slow cooker and use during the week for various meals – nachos, black bean quinoa burgers, chili, whatever strikes our fancy. This week I wanted something a little different. I’m …

Vegan Southern-style Biscuits

Saturdays around here usually mean a hearty breakfast of some sort. Cinnamon oatmeal pancakes and sausage are our usual dish, but I found us lacking maple syrup, so I had to switch to Plan B – Sausage Biscuits. While I make a lot of our food from scratch, sausage isn’t yet one of them. I …

Dinnertime Roundup Part 2

Lots of cooking here at Casa Mitchell, and rather than put them into individual posts, I thought I would catch up with a short update and some food porn. Finally invested in a full size (4 quart) crockpot. My old one is from when I was a single graduate student, and is a bit small …

Banana Walnut Bread

This is my tried and true recipe for Banana Walnut Bread. It’s a family favorite, and the dish my husband requests most (and complains that I don’t make often enough…). Banana bread is a quick bread that can be enjoyed as a warm breakfast bread, or even as a dessert. With a preschooler in the …
