Hello again! I haven't been posting much lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking lots of great vegan food. 

Here's a sampling of what's been simmering (or baking!) in my kitchen: (oh, and just to let you know, I'm not in Pittsburgh right now with my cookbook stash, so the recipe names might not exactly be accurate. But rest assured, I'll come back and make corrections!)

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. I decided to make cupcakes for her instead of a big ole cake. Cream cookie cupcakes from 500 Vegan Recipes with an agave chocolate frosting. This is a very moist, delicious cupcake. Definitely chocolate overload.

Here's a picture of the cupcakes, pre-frosting.
And a picture of my mother-in-law with a frosted cupcake and her birthday candle!
Now, I don't want to mislead you into thinking that I just make desserts 24/7. There's also breakfast food ...

Like the tofu scramble I made the other day (I used the recipe from Vegan Brunch) with Perfect Pumpkin muffins (Vegan with a Vengeance) and diner potatoes (Vegan Brunch).
I've also been delving a bit into macrobiotics, like the Nishime recipe from The Kind Diet.
And a polenta seitan casserole, also from The Kind Diet!

Finally, the tortilla poblano casserole from Viva Vegan! Can I just say again that I love this cookbook?

I'm actually planning a Tex-Mex/Latin American vegan Thanksgiving dinner, so stay tuned for pictures from that!
