Orange Cookies for Halloween

Vegan Sausage Patties

I used to really enjoy the Morningstar Sausage Patties in my Vegetarian days, but since they are not Vegan friendly I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I know there are other brands that are Vegan, but I just prefer to make my own.  This list of ingredients looks long, but keep in mind that most of it is spices and you can omit a couple if you do not have them.  The fennel is a must, as is the Cayenne and Black Pepper, but the rest is just the combination I came up with...

Natchitoches Pies

Keeping with the Vegan in Louisiana theme I decided to try my hand at the famous Natchitoches Meat Pies.  TVP is always a good substitute for anything that would normally require ground meat.  If you can not find TVP in your area or if you are rushed for time, you can use Boca Crumbles or Fantastic World Food's Taco Filling. Both of these meat substitutes are Vegan.  The MorningStar Farms version is not, it contains both dairy and egg. To make mine a bit healthier I chose to use whole wheat flour and also to...

Vegan King Cake

  In honor of the approaching Mardi Gras season, I decided I needed to veganize the traditional King Cake.  I see them all around me this time of year.  Every grocery store has them, and without fail someone always brings one to a party.  For myself and my fellow Vegans, it sucks that we can not take part in this tradition. So I took it upon myself to study up on how to make a King Cake and veganize the recipe.  For anyone not familiar...

Happy New Year Quiche

Happy New Year to all!!  Welcome to 2011.  I hope this year brings health, happiness, and success to everyone.  This also marks the 1 year anniversary of the Coppage house going vegan.  We continue to be happy about this decision and are learning and growing as people because of it.  It is still a struggle to go out and eat and it is a constant battle of defending our decision to other people, but we know this is right for us. To continue with the tradition of black eyed peas...

What To Do With Leftover Cranberry Sauce

I made homemade Cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries this year.  It was delicious, but I had a lot leftover.  I started looking around online for ideas of what I could do with it so I wouldn't have to waste it.  I found lots of recipes for cranberry muffins which would probably be good, but just didn't sound very appealing to me.  What I did find that sounded appealing to me was Coffee Cake.  I couldn't find a vegan recipe so I took one that...
