VeganMoFo: Birthdays

Birthday Cake

August means a lot of birthday parties and celebrations in my family. The last week of August brings 3 family members birthdays! Its hectic but fun and we get to enjoy lots of cake and good food! The cake above was from Sweet Avenue Bakeshop in Rutherford, NJ for a surprise birthday party for me thrown by my family. I had absolutely no idea it was happening. It was a true surprise and I still don’t know how it happened without me knowing. I tend to know everything that is going on or will at least pick up some hints. 1 month later and I still find myself thinking “How?”. 

I can't wait to dig into @sotastyvegan 's BLT Kale Salad plus some of the other treats I bought from her stand at the Farmers Market in Montclair today.

BLT Kale Salad

I like to celebrate my birthday with food. In honesty I like to celebrate just general life with food but on birthday’s I’ll go the extra mile like heading up to the new Tuesday Farmers Market in Montclair, NJ where I visit Sally Owen’s SO Tasty Vegan stand where she sells some of the most delicious food including the BLT Kale Salad above. I savored every bite because I didn’t want it to ever end. 

B-Day Dinner: Chickpea and Cauliflower Tacos w. Cilantro Lime Crema. #vegan

Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Tacos

Since my birthday fell on a Tuesday the only option for dinner were Tacos! This is one of those rare times where I actually made something I’ve pinned on Pinterest.  This was the second time I’ve made this recipe by Two Peas and Their Pod. Its a recipe that made me angry that I didn’t come up with it myself! It is so easy to make. The first time I made it for friends of ours and they loved it so much they ended up making it for themselves a few time after. I like serving these with a side of sauteed kale. Some people like to add to the kale to the tacos. 

 

Throwback Thursday: Mushroom Cream Sauce

Creamy Mushroom Linguini

I am taking things back to 1 year and 1 day ago to my Post and Recipe for Mushroom Cream Sauce.

This quickly became one of my most popular recipes online, on pinterest and at home last year. We eat it at least 2 times a month as is or with a variety of vegetables added to it like peppers, carrots and zucchini which make it more like a primavera sauce. As I’m typing this post out I’m gearing up to make it for dinner tonight along with some garlic bread and a big salad. I can’t wait!
