Where have I been?

I've been in California for the past two weeks and I have bundles and bundles of posts to update as soon as I'm back home and settled back into my husband's arms and puppy/kitty cuddles. I miss all my lil furry babies! I'm coming back to Austin tonight y'all, and I can't wait!

Blog Love: Butter and Sugar

My housemate's blog Butter and Sugar is HERE. Many of my recent posts have been colaborations with her, and sneak peaks at some of her delicious dishes. Check out her site for some great easily vegan-izable treats and meals (for those that are not already vegan).

Here's some pics of her working her magic in our kitchen... Not pictured are her vegan chocolate chip cookies (we ate them too fast), which are by far the BEST homemade cookies I have ever eaten. I need to get that recipe!!!

Recipes: Standard Summer Taco Time

As usual, one of my favorite summer dinners. When its more than just me and my husband eating, I always serve buffet-style. Crunchy taco shells make things more fun too.

Brown Rice- In a rice cooker, added 1 vegan bullion cube with the water.

Protein- Sauteed onions, garlic, tomatoes, and bell pepper. Added salt/ground pepper to taste. Added 2 cans of black beans, half of which I smashed with a fork (thanks to Rachel Ray's Technique).

Fillings- Housemates made a Cabbage Slaw (so yummy!), chopped red bell pepper, and Daiya Cheeze.

Salsa- My husband's secret, super-spicy Ghost Pepper recipe. shhh, I can't tell!

Recipes: Pad Thai

Our housemates made this amazing Thai dinner. I don't have their recipes yet, but hopefully will post soon... Summer nights are starting to cool down, which means we get to eat in the back patio every night!
