When you’re on a tight budget, it’s hard to break out of your food comfort zone. That’s definitely been the case for us lately. Our weekly meals have been a rotation of stir-fry, pasta dishes, soups and basic sandwiches. And not that that’s a bad thing; it just doesn’t make for an interesting blog. But every now and then we make something kind of new (I’ve made them one other time), as is the case with these banana biscuits (with veggie sausage and blackberry jam — not the prettiest picture, but delicious) from “Vegan Diner.” And I say “we” because my husband has become quite the baker lately. He’s been knocking out cookies, muffins, cupcakes and quick breads like it’s nobody’s business. I came home on Friday to find a fresh batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes from “Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.” They were so delicious that we ate them (with a little help from my parents) before I had the chance to take pictures.
We did manage to pick up Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s and Terry Hope Romero’s latest dessert cookbook, “Vegan Pie in the Sky.”
According to Amazon, the book isn’t due out until October 25th, but we found it at our local bookstore. We’re planning on making an apple pie today, so hopefully I’ll have something a little more exciting to post here very soon.
I hope everyone is well!!
