Foodie Friday: Sunday Edition

It's Foodie Friday! Foodie Friday is my weekly feature that gives you a window into my kitchen. I love to cook, I love to eat, I love to read cookbooks, and I love to inspire people to give vegan food a chance. Thus, Foodie Friday was whipped up and baked to perfection.
I didn't work on this post on Friday because I was just plain tired out from wrestling with poor sick Jasper in our twice-daily attempts to force-feed him his medicine. He thrashes, he bites, and he foams at the mouth--I'm going to try to take a picture of him post-drugs. He looks rabid.

But on to the food. Not pictured this week: vegan Shamrock shakes and chocolate peanut butter shakes. After revisiting my Shamrock shake recipe, I wasn't satisfied with it, so I called a do-over on myself today. The result was different, but not necessarily in a good way. I'm still not satisfied. Back to the test kitchen on this one... and back to the grocery store for more nondairy ice cream.

As promised, last Friday night I made Maris' soft pretzel recipe. And then I made another batch, tripled, because Jason ate most of my share while I wasn't looking. Tricky!

I served them with home-brewed miso mustard mayonnaise, and it was divine. Just combine 5 packets of Chinese hot mustard (from any Chinese takeout restaurant), 1 spoonful of Vegenaise, and two spoonfuls of miso paste. Stir well and dip away!

And some Robin Robertson recipes:

pumpkin bread with cranberries (from 1,000 Vegan Recipes)

red bean and sweet potato curry (from Vegan Planet)

sesame soba noodles (from 1,000 Vegan Recipes)

ginger-spice brownies (from 1,000 Vegan Recipes)

My next challenge: tonight's dinner. I have no idea what to make!

Definitely post the vegan Shamrock shake recipe. I'm SO intrigued to see it and hear how it tastes

I love pumpkin bread, and I love cranberries, so the combination sounds drool-worthy!

Anything from Maris is usually a win. Looks great!
