Here’s how it works:

  1. Take a picture of the items in your freezer
  2. Post the picture to your blog and give a summary of the items
  3. Tag 5 vegan bloggers


Here’s a look into my freezer:

  • mock eel
  • veggie healthy chicken
  • veggie smoked chicken
  • bac’n ham
  • citrus spare ribs
  • bbq pork
  • Eggplant slices
  • broccoli
  • stir fry vegetables
  • corn
  • peas
  • filo dough
  • ice
  • Frangelico
  • edamame

So it seems we have a freezer full of veggie meats and vegetables. Neil and I went on a MayWah (vegieworld.com) shopping spree about a month ago and we are still eating our massive supply of veggie meats.

Veganmofo- Apple Almond- Crumb Cake Muffins

We had some left over apples that were beyond what I like eating; pretty much as soon as they get soft I am over them. So I decided to make some muffins.

For Muffins:

  • 1 c flour
  • 1/2 c almond meal
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/4 c + 2T sugar
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t ground allspice
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 3/4 plain soy milk
  • 1/3 c canola oil
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c grated apple
  • 1/2 c diced apple

For Topping:

  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t ground allspice
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 T canola oil
  • 1/4 c maple granola

Prepare the topping by mixing all the dry topping ingredients except the granola together in a small bowl. Drizzle the oil in 1 T at a time while mixing with your fingertips until crumbs form. It may be slightly went. Then add the granola in and mix to crumble. Set aside

Preheat oven to 375F, line the muffin tin.

In a large mixing bowl mix together th flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, spices, salt and almond meal. Create a well in the center and add the soy milk, oil and vanilla. Mix, then fold in the grated and chopped apple.

Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full. Sprinkle the crumb topping over each muffin. Bake for 22 min.

Veganmofo- Foo Kin Chinese

This weekend my husband and I went to Cooperstown, NY. I had done some research prior to our trip and was feeling pretty disappointed because it seemed that there were no vegan options in this town except for your standard veggie sandwiches, salads and veggie burgers. However, to our surpirse we found a great Chinese restaurant that had a number of vegan options.

Foo Kin Chinese is located right around the corner from the Baseball Hall of Fame and is small and kinda sketchy looking but amazing. It is all family run, the dad cooks the kids seat and serve and the mom helps out as well.

We had:
(Steamed or) Fried Vegetable Dumplings (6) 3.95- These were amazing they were filled with mushrooms and cabbage and were just so good and the sauce that came with them was amazing as well.
then we split:
GENERAL TSO’s BEAN CURD 8.25
Fried bean curd w. sautéed broccoli
with hot & spicy sauce.
This was good too the tofu was all crispy and yummy the sauce was good not the best general tso’s I’ve ever had but it was satisfying.
Their other vegan options include:
  • Vegetables
    (w. Rice)
    Per Order
    Bean Curd w. Garlic Sauce 7.25
    Bean Curd w. Szechuan Sauce 7.25
    Bean Curd w. Mixed Vegetables 7.25
    Kung Po Bean Curd 7.25
    Bean Curd w. Broccoli 7.25
    Broccoli w. Black Bean Sauce 6.25
    Mixed Chinese Vegetables 6.25
    Sautéed Broccoli 6.25
    Broccoli w. Garlic Sauce 6.25
    Stir Fried Snow Peas 7.25
    Buddhist Delight 7.25
  • Diet Dishes Special
    (w. Rice & Ginger Sauce)
    Per Order
    Mixed Vegetables or Plain Broccoli 6.00
    Steamed Snow Peas 6.95
    Bean Curd w. Mixed Vegetables 6.95
  • Sesame Cold Noodles 3.95

Overall we enjoyed it and were glad that we found something vegan in Cooperstown that wasn’t just a veggie burger.

Christmas Came Early

My in-laws are here right now and last night we had Christmas with them, early I know, eh? However we are not going to be able to make it the Maritmes before Easter weekend so since they were coming here anyways we decided to celebrate Christmas in October. I was lucky enough to receive a nice holder for my cookbooks so that when I am making things my hands don’t make my book all dirty and I won’t have to prop it open with cans or anything else that will hold the pages down. I also received:

I am so excited to start making things from it!

Response from my inquiry about vegan options:
Hi,

All our stock pastas contain eggs at this point in time. However, the pizza crust and sauce is egg/animal free. You could do a vegan pizza if you opt to go without any cheese. We also make our own pita bread for sandwiches, so there are vegan options there. We’ve tested some vegan pastas, but haven’t produced any yet. If you were interested in a special order, we could arrange to make a batch of fettuccini or spaghetti. Unfortunately there isn’t much demand for Vegan though, so I’d have to ask you to purchase at least half the batch, which would be 10 lbs. I’d try to sell the other half here. Shelf life is almost indefinite if kept frozen.
Thanks,Dan
