The GREAT Holiday Recipe Collection

22nd Nov 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

Re-runs are on TV.  Re-runs are on this blog… it’s a “slow news day” as it were, and since Thanksgiving is coming up, why not create a “best of” recipes blog?  It’ll be your one stop shop!

An all vegetarian, mostly vegan recipes list for your holiday get-togethers.  Great for Thanksgiving, Diwali, Hanukkah‎, Kwanzaa‎, Festivus, Eid ul-Fitr عيد الفطر, Christmas, or the also popular Xmas…

Here are some of my favorite recipe creations (dreamt up here)…

  • S’mores Pouches – super fun, not too difficult, I’m really proud of this creation…
  • Chantrelle & Gruyere Quiche – I also made it with a Cheetos crust, but don’t feel as if you have to follow suit…
  • Jalapeno Brie Poppers – Great served with a blueberry compote!
  • Taco Scones – How could something so easy and so delicious never have been conceived of before?  These are flippin’ brilliant (and versatile for substitutions).  Have some salsa, guacamole or sour cream on hand for dippin’…
  • Savory Feta & Kalamata Pound Cake – I took an olive oil poundcake recipe and “Greek’d” it up.  It’s a fave!
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly Cocktail paired with…
    Grilled Mac & Cheese Sandwiches
    – This was one of my favorite, unique recipes.  It took some time to test (oh no, I have to taste test vodka again!?).  The pairing with the grilled mac & cheese sandwiches worked really well.  The peanut vodka is too late to start for Thanksgiving, but I’d recommend trying it!

Here are some classics… they’d go great for your holiday noshing…

RECIPE: Easy Pumpkin Cheesecake

5th Nov 11 (Sat) 2 comments

A little belated, but for the Gonzalo Bergara Quartet house concert, there was a potluck element, and I brought…

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Makes 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 (8 ounce) cream cheese containers
    there are good vegan options, like Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 small pie pumpkin (roasted) or 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger, all-spice, nutmeg mixture)
  • 1 graham cracker crust – prepared or homemade
  • optional: whipped topping

Steps: prep time ~10 minutes, cook/cool time varies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat cream cheese until soft. Add in sugar, and continue mixing.
  3. Add in pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.
  4. Pour into prepared crust, and bake for 35-40 minutes until soft but still set in the center.
  5. Let cool for 1 hour, then refrigerate for 3+ hours.

Since the above recipe is fairly remedial ( but still delicious), if you want to “fancy” it up… here’s a great, more complicated recipe with a ginger-pecan crust and sugared pumpkin seeds!  Hat-tip to Panda le Chef for passing on that fancier recipe (I’ll have to try it soon).

Hint… this mushroom gravy also works great for a vegan option over top of Thanksgiving stuffing and mashed potatoes. That’s what I’m doing for tomorrow’s festivities. Yum!

RECIPE: Vegan Biscuits & Gravy Vegan Biscuits & Gravy I made some vegan biscuits and gravy for Veggie Supper Club last night.  Our theme was “Breakfast for Dinner.”  We also brought a vegan version of Amish Baked Oatmeal (with fresh blackberries from our backyard) and sparkling white wine, OJ & grenadine for breakfast cocktails. :)  If you stumbled in here from… Read More
