More from "Comfort Foods"

I woke up this morning at 6:45 with Billy when he got up for work....highly unorthodox for me! I decided to use the time wisely and make us a delicious breakfast, courtesy of Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Foods. I have now cooked three meals in a row that Billy and I both ate! :P Good wifey much?!?

French Toast- Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Foods

I made it with some cinnamon raisin bread we had, so it was even better.

Breakfast Sausage- Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Foods

These are made with gluten flour and are very flavourful. I will use a bit less water next time to firm up the texture. These definitely need to be pan fried before serving, or else they're too mushy for "sausage".

Before frying:

Linguine with Marinara- Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Foods

This was dinner last night. Very good and simple to make. I used TVP in the sauce which is optional but adds a little something.

Peanut Butter Blondies- Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar

And this was dessert! Fantabulous...then again, anything with pb is! Next time, I will bake these for a few minutes longer, as they're very delicate and crumble easily.

WOW those blondies look amazing, I've always wanted to try making them. I think I will! :)

Everything looks good! I'm thinking on buying another vegan cookbook, can you recommend the Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Foods? I noticed that you cooked a lot out of it!

C, I do recommend it!! There's nothing too fancy or complicated, but there's a lot of good food! This cook book revived my love of vegan cooking when I was going through a major slump.
