Of course, I was inspired by Vegan Lunch Box, and not satisfied enough with posting the occasional food porn in Veganfoodpics on Livejournal. This year I'm focusing on writing and posting actual recipes, eating local and organic throughout the winter, soups, testing more and more PPK recipes and feeling productive, buying another 'real' culinary knife and still being cooking-obsessed - the flat out reason I made GetSconed! (which I must credit Thomas for naming). Somehow, I hope to improve at digital photography and presentation in this upcoming year, as well. I'm aiming for a new camera within 9 months.
With making this blog, I hoped some people would have to be interested in seeing what another food blogger was up to, as I am with them. I want to thank some of the first blogs I started reading on a regular basis (and hearing from as well) - Vegan*Core, Eat Air!,What the hell does aVegan Eat Anyway?, Fatfree Vegan, ViveLe Vegan! and Eat Peace Please.
Back on track and misty eyed, here's some food porn:
Cinnamon Apple 'Buttermilk' Waffles- made with whole wheat pastry and oat flour.
Topped with maple syrup (the good stuff!), sliced apples and a dash of cinnamon.
Pan fried cajun tofu (dipped in a cajun spice mix, paprika, sea salt) - rubbed and topped with roasted garlic, oven roasted potato rounds (sea salt, freshly grounder pepper and garlic) and
fresh spinach. I felt like tofu for breakfast the other day, and then realized it was lunch time. I had also restocked on ketchup (organicWoodstock) and wanted to use it.
Chicken-fried seitan cutlet and green beans. Quite simple, really. The seitan cutlet is a test recipe for next year's PPK book. Those were Trader Joe's frozen organic green beans and weren't half bad. It's more of a Thomas recipe than a Jess, but I survived : )
These were a bitch to make but worth it. Homestyle potato rolls - another PPK test recipe.
You know the PPK banana bread is so awesome, right? This one is super duper good as well - the basic recipe minus 1/8 cup of sugar, plus chopped pecans and an extra banana, since I had 4 all mushy and ready.
So thank you for reading my blog, and commenting, asking questions, etc. I appreciate everything!
I probably won't be posting for a bit, as my sister and her boyfriend arrive tommorow! We'll have plenty to do, not to mention cooking together, including her specialty - gumbo, cupcakes and potluck treats for the weekend.
