Chocolate Sauce

You ever had a late night craving for some chocolate milk?  Or maybe just wanted some chocolate sauce to put on top of your almond ice cream or homemade cookies.  Well, have I got the quick solution to your problem.  I was actually working on making homemade Bailey's irish cream and I needed chocolate sauce to complete the recipe.  So here is what I made and then later I will post the Bailey's recipe to accompany it. Vegan Chocolate Sauce Makes about 1 Cup

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...

Cold Veggie Pizza

I served this one up at our Holiday Party this year and have had several requests for the recipe.  After much anticipation here it is for you.  And before anyone asks.  Yes, surprisingly Pilsbury Original Crescent Rolls are Vegan.  I had to do a little research on this and some issues arose as to the DATEM, diacetyltartaric acid esters of monoglycerides, which is often from animal sources, and is found in the ingredients list.  Luckily for us, someone wrote to Pilsbury and inquired on the matter.  Their entire response can...

Edamame Hummus

  I first had store bought Edamame Hummus at my friend Sachi's baby shower last year.  I have been wanting to make it for a while, but was kind of scared since my crappy blender did such a bad job with regular hummus.  That crappy blender died about a month ago and I decided to replace it with a food processor.  Moving on to Christmas, I got several cookbooks as gifts this year which I am super excited about trying out. One of them is Vegan A Go-Go. By: Sarah Kramer.  On...

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...

Jalapeno Popper Dip

  I made this once before when I was a vegetarian and it was so amazing.  Friday night I attended my friend Allie's birthday party which was a chips and dip party.  I though this would be the perfect opportunity to make this dip again Vegan style.  Both of my local stores were out of the regular tofutti so I had to use the herbs and chives kind.  I think it adds to the flavors, but you can use either kind.  I have to say this version is just as delicious as...

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...
