Fall Food So Good.

I’m still under the weather. It sucks because I’m missing out on some fun, but I’d really just like to get better. My energy level is in the toilet, but I’ve still been attempting some cookery. I have about enough energy to prep something, then rest. Then once I build more energy, I have about enough to make something, rest again and then eat. It’s obnoxious, but I know an important part of getting well is eating nutritious food. If only cooking delicious, nutritious food didn’t take so long and so much energy. Hmm, thinking I ought to consult Quick-Fix Vegetarian if I can find it—which ps, does anyone know why this book isn’t called Quick-Fix Vegan? 100% of the recipes are vegan, so I’m not really sure why the title chooses the word vegetarian. I actually bought the book when I was still vegetarian expecting it to have dairy recipes, but was pleasantly surprised. Not long after the purchase I became vegan anyway, so I started using that book a lot. There is a recipe in there for a stuffed, slow cooked kabocha which is great. Yeels…I do need to find that book.

Anyhow, I thought I’d share some of my latest eats, aka, what has been going in my belly. Recipes are from various books, blogs or my own. I love sharing recipes, but some aren’t ready to be shared yet and some I just keep to myself. πŸ˜‰

  1. I can vouch that the pumpkin cinnamon rolls were FANTASTIC… and I’m a pretty tough cinnamon roll critic (one of my favorite foods).

    And everything else looks like it could find room in my belly!

  2. Hi! As the author of Quick-Fix Vegetarian, I wanted to answer your question about the title. It was the decision of the publisher to use the word “vegetarian” at that time (this was a few years ago before the word “vegan” became a household word). And also, I think, because there are some people who use the term “vegetarian” to refer to “plant-based” food — using “ovo” and “lacto” when they include eggs or dairy in their diet. Sorry for the confusion, but I’m so glad you like Quick-Fix Vegetarian! BTW, last month my new book, Quick-Fix Vegan came out. It’s filled with all new and different vegan recipes — kind of like a companion volume to the first book.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by the blog and clarifying the title. I love the book and your others–I have a big collection. Glad I happened to buy Quick-Fix as it was really helpful when I made the transition to vegan a few years back. πŸ™‚ I am def going to be picking up Quick-Fix vegan too! I need more “quick” in my life when it comes to meal making!
