Delicious Pumpkin Butter!

Forgive the blurry photograph. I was all too excited about the DELICIOUS PUMPKIN BUTTER* I had just made! I put some of this on some Wasa Crispbread and munched until I could no longer munch. Om nom nom!

That’s right. Be jealous.

* If you don’t like cooking things in the microwave, you won’t like this method. There are other ways. I use this method to use up all of my “left over” pumpkin from other recipes.


I am only to eat out of my pantry/fridge until the first of November. Let’s hope it works. Oh the life of a poor college student…!

Alright, Nooch. You win this time.

Baked Nooch Encrusted Vegetarian Mock Duck (canned Seitan)

Nutritional Yeast. I don’t get it. It sounds awesome. It has this strange musky smell, though. And the taste its somewhat bitter. Right now, I’ve got Asian canned seitan that’s been covered in Nooch. Will it taste good? We’ll see in about 10 minutes…

What are some guilt-free, vegan snacks that you enjoy?

Yeah so I did it, I finally bought Vegan with a Vengeance. Consider me hooked.

My ballet midterm was today. It was awesome except for the part where I slipped and hurt my left knee. Oh snap. But in other news, I made some Quick Spinach and Chickpea Curry that I found over at fatfreevegan. Delicious. The only thing I changed is that I used fresh baby spinach instead of the frozen type. I added it in like the last 3 minutes of cooking because spinach cooks faaaaast. 😀

The garam masala is really what makes this dish. I constantly ask myself if I’m tasting something sweet or spicy with this dish. The answer? Both. Awesome.
