I think my favorite part of this year’s VeganMoFo has been following people’s themes through the month, congratulations to everyone who has stuck with it!
One of the most informative and hunger inducing blogs you will probably read this month is Meet the Wikos. Erinwiko has been doing an amazingly thorough job of chronicling her adventures in cooking up vegan international street food. I have learned a lot and started to really crave Okonomiyaki even though I have never tried it!Even though I mentioned Oh, LadyCakes in another round-up I have to bring up her fabulous blog again because I am so impressed that she has stuck with her pumpkin theme for this entire month! From Pumpkin chocolate chip cookie bars to Spicy pumpkin chili to today’s Pumpkin stuffed crêpes everything she has covered pumpkin from every angle and made it all look amazing! Just try and act like you don’t want this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Galette.vegan.in.brighton has been at it again with a cookbook challenge where she picks out book titles out of a hat although yesterday instead of the random number generator to pick which recipe she used her official husband generator and he chose the Veganomicon’s Banana Nut Waffles. They look so good that I want to cry about how I don’t have a waffle iron.Craft Aftermath has been doing a cookbook challenge too and I have been enjoying it because she has a lot of cookbooks that I don’t! Check out her posts Spicy Noodles and Leek Miso Soup from Kansha, Taco Night from Rick Bayless’ Mexican Everyday and or It begins with bread Parisian Daily Bread from Daniel Leader’s Local Breads if you are looking for some new books to add to your collection. And if you have never made your own chai, check out her directions for the real deal.
Cold and Sleepy Cooks has been following the letters of the alphabet everyday and I am loving the selections.J is for Jaggery, P is for Port, and of course O is for Olive. My love of olives is boundless so I can’t wait to make her olive and walnut spread which looked beautiful to me!That Pain in the Ass Vegan has one of the most inspiring and hilarious themes out there because she is basing ever recipe of the show “True Blood”. Since the show takes place in the Louisiana all the food is southern comfort but then also inspired by the characters and episodes so she has dishes like Terry’s Red Eye Gravy n’ Grits, Sam’s Shapeshifter Ham, and Jesus Saves Chili. Right now I really want to sink my teeth into Sheriff Bellefleur’s Beignets.Stick a fork in me, I’m done!
