Spitzbuba holiday cookies

According to the cookbook Ive been using, no one really knows why these cookies are called spitzbuba. All the same I made them because I think almonds taste good in cookies. Also, its nice to have something sweet for a coffee break.  The recipe was very easy to veganize as well because the only non-veganContinue reading “Spitzbuba holiday cookies”

Ithaca gets a food truck

I have been having a very busy weekend, so this post is extra short. I have to say posting every day is a lot of work! If you have ever visited Ithaca, NY you probably already know we don’t have many vegan food options. Many restaurants are vegan friendly, but none are 100% vegan. ThisContinue reading “Ithaca gets a food truck”

himmel und erde (heaven and earth)

Last week I was happy to get pears, and potatoes among other things from my CSA.  I love the changing variety of produce during late summer  and early fall.  All the perfect of ingredients for delicious comfort foods.  As soon as I came home with my share, I knew I had to make another ofContinue reading “himmel und erde (heaven and earth)”

Spaghetti Eis (ice cream)

My favorite brand of vegan ice cream is probably Temptation by Chicago Vegan Foods.  They make so many amazing flavors; there hasn’t been even one I didn’t love.  Unfortunately, for me there are really only two places around here I can get this particular brand of ice cream.  The first place that carries this brandContinue reading “Spaghetti Eis (ice cream)”

yeast dumplings and sauerkraut

I love, love, love, dumplings in just about any form.  These yeast dumplings are easy to make, and yummy. They came out just the way I remember. Moist on the outside, sort of dry and airy inside.  They really are quite delicious! My Swabian cookbook suggests serving them on a bed of sauerkraut. The originalContinue reading “yeast dumplings and sauerkraut”

Gaisburger Marsch Stew

I wanted to post something earlier today, but today has been so very busy.  Specifically I was catching up with my Digital Libraries class.  I actually made this soup a few days ago, but I’m posting it now.  It’s not cheating if I made something a while ago right? Anyway, Gaisburger Marsch is a typicalContinue reading “Gaisburger Marsch Stew”

gluten-free breaded kohlrabi

Breaded kohlrabi and salad, it’s what’s for lunch! Kohlrabi is a popular vegetable in Germany, or maybe just with my family.  I often eat it raw in salads, or as a stand in for cucumbers.  I have even made it a few times with falafel and vegan tzatziki sauce. This recipe inspiration however, did notContinue reading “gluten-free breaded kohlrabi”

homemade pasta

It’s finally Sunday, and I made it through one week of vegan mofo blogging!  I don’t know what you had for breakfast today, but over here in my little corner of the world we are enjoying fresh fruit from our CSA. The plate has yellow watermelon, nectarine, and plum slices. Along with delicious bread fromContinue reading “homemade pasta”
