MoFo 20! Quick & Easy Vegan Celebrations.

I left the house fairly early yesterday morning, checked the mail on my way out and to my surprise, my copy of Quick & Easy Vegan Celebrations had arrived!

I couldn't wait to rip the package open and thumb through all the recipes to figure out what I would make first. A few things caught my eye, the Au Gratin Potatoes (Pg.124), the Tempeh Cakes with spicy Remoulade (Pg.34), the Creamy Brocolli and Cauliflower Soup (Pg.122) and the one I am most excited about making is the Classic Macaroni and Cheeze (Pg. 174). I promptly made a trip to the grocery store to make sure I had all the ingredients and also picked up a little extra so I could make the brocolli soup as well. It is getting really cold here, in fact we had our first snowfall last night so all that is on my mind lately is warm, comfort foods. I am so excited to make so many recipes out of this book and am very grateful to Alicia C. Simpson for not only writing such a kick ass cookbook but for allowing me the opportunity to win it! She even signed it for me :) Unfortunately I did not have a very productive day and didn't actually get to making anything but I will leave you with this droolworthy photo of the Mac n Cheeze I plan on making very soon!

Macaroni and Cheeze


  1. Ooh I have this too but haven't looked through it much. Do you have her other cookbook? I didn't like the looks of that one (comfort food) because it's less my style of eating but I'm excited for this book!

  2. I don't but after browsing through this book I might have to put it on my wishlist. I try not to eat like that either but comfort foods are one of my favorite things.
