Isa’s ‘Vegan with a Vengeance- 10th Anniversary Edition’ – The Queen of Post Punk Kitchen strikes again!

Isa’s ‘Vegan with a Vengeance- 10th Anniversary Edition’ – The Queen of Post Punk Kitchen strikes again!

   Have you ever just wanted to curl up next to a dessert and just snuggle?  That’s what Isa’s Macadamia Blondies did to me when I made a batch.  My first of what will be many batches, I’m certain.  These decadent Maple Syrup drenched Blondies are just one of so many recipes that I’ve tried in the past few months from her newest book ‘Vegan with a Vengeance’   from Da Capo Lifelong Books  Born and raised in Brooklyn, Isa Chandra Moskowitz began her vegan cooking journey over two decades ago. In 2003, she created the Post Punk Kitchen community access TV show to give vegans something to watch. In conjunction with the show, she also started the PPK website to support an online vegan cooking and baking community.  And having been quite the punk rocker in my day and now being a Vegan for the last 3 years myself – let’s just say I fell in love this summer with Isa and her newest, coolest recipe collection. ♥ This book is edgy, like Isa.  It’s delicious and looks at food with a cruelty free mindset while still being  ‘in your face’.  She loves food and she loves animals.  Her two…

Denise’s  “Double Mint Chocolate Muffins, Eggs & Bacon” – from Pink Vegan – Breakfast In Bed-Fest entry #7

My ‘Breakfast In Bed-Festival’ this year is really just a sneaky way of sharing my favorite Vegan bloggers best breakfast recipes with you all and having a bit of competitive fun all the while.  As I have said too many lots of times before, I leave out for work in the pre-pre-dawn hours, more like the middle of the night for some, I’m sure. I don’t get the luxury very often to enjoy a wonderfully fresh home made breakfast to enjoy in the comfort of my home.  So I’m hosting a little monthly highlight this year of the best of the best in healthy breakfast ideas for days when I am able to spend more time enjoying breakfast. I’ve asked 12 of the most creative, health conscious and economically minded  bloggers to each share 1 breakfast that highlights both their own website and their own ingenuity for eating healthily, kindly and creatively.  At year’s end, we’ll have a little vote on which month’s posting you all enjoyed the most and congratulate the winner with a few kind words and some prizes.  There’s a Pinterest board you can follow to see how the event unfolds each month with all the recipes and news about my…

Annie’s ‘Loaded Muffins’

Annie’s ‘Loaded Muffins’

  I fell in love with this recipe the first time I saw Annie’s post last month for ‘Loaded Morning Muffins with Crumb Topping’. There are just so many luscious flavors, maple, ……nuts, spice and fruit, vanilla, cinnamon….oats, ginger….YUM. I’ve made up similar recipes when I’m trying to clean out the cupboard or fridge.  Sometimes they work out (sometimes not) But these big beauties work great, even if you have to switch out a few items to clean out your own supplies 🙂 I did make a few changes in mine and they worked out fine. I used fresh peaches in place of the apricots & carrots. Used Sweet Potato instead of Pumpkin. And crushed up some granola for the crumb topping. You can find Annie’s original recipe in it’s purely awesome state here. Whether you use fresh fruit or dried the nutrition and flavors of these ‘loaded’ little cakes will not disappoint.  I made up a double batch of batter and froze half of it to experiment soon to make some ‘Loaded’ waffles as well.  If they’re half as good as these muffins turned out, I’ll be loading up on those too. An Unrefined Vegan has so many wonderfully…
