Delurk yourselves! :)

Whoops...our Thanksgiving dinner of stuffed manicotti and brownies was so delicious, we ate it all too quickly before I remembered to take pictures! I will post the recipe soon though. I'm quite proud of it, as Billy ate most of the recipe including leftovers, and it's a task to try and get him to eat leftovers.

Here's an apricot loaf I made from How It All Vegan, in an effort to make recipes from some of my more neglected cookbooks. I'm not a huge fan of dried apricots, but I was gifted with a large bag of them and wanted to try them out before just tossing them. The bread itself is quite lovely, with apricot juice but next time I would drastically reduce the amount of dried fruit or substitute for one I like. If you love dried apricots, this bread is for you!


And finally, if you have been stopping by, I'm asking that you leave a comment, even just to say hi. Why? Because I'd like to say hello, and stop by your blog if you have one! Plus, it makes a girl feel good to see some comments after her hard work...ok, not hard, but still :)

There is an apricot bread in HIAV? I've much neglected this book too this past few years. It used to be my only vegan cookbook when I turned vegan some 10 years ago, but I didn't try this recipe. And since I like dried apricot, I must give it a try. Thanks!

Hi! I found your blog through a 'vegan blog' search on google. I love blogs that post recipes AND pics! I'm not fully vegan, but I can't eat meat or dairy. :) Just thought I would say hi.

Hi, I recently started blogging about vegan desserts (as a start). Found your blog, love it! Do you happen to have the recipe for the nanaimo bars? The link in your post about them no longer works. So if you DO have it, please share -- bethannabel@gmail.com. I'm also looking for La Dolce Vegan's B'nanner Bars - do you have that recipe?
