Blogging buddies make my week a success!

This weeks food has been made possible by 3 really super blogging buddies. First I need to send a big thank you out to Julie of Everydaydish.tv for her enchiladas recipe. Our ladies group at church has a progressive dinner each year for Christmas. This year the theme was Mexican and the main dish was enchiladas. Seeing that I wanted to eat too I needed to make vegan enchiladas, which I have never done. I emailed Julie and the same day I received an email from her describing how she makes them. Thank you so much! I followed her cooking directions along with a yummy filling of black beans, sauteed leeks, chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic, cumin the addition of some Gimmi Lean "meat" and some extra Follow Your Heart Cheddar Cheeze over the top of 2 big cans of enchiladas sauce. They were the hit of the dinner. People were shocked to see me eating them and kept saying, "Thought you were vegan". Well, vegans can have just as much fun as the rest of you. Ladies were tasting from my plate and going to get some of their own. Good thing I made 2 pans of them. Sadly in all the hurrying I forgot to take a decent picture so this is all I have to offer. They are so good!!! Boy I want to make some more!!!





My next big Thank you goes out to Becks for asking Jess if I could have her mum's awesome vegan biscuit recipe. Mum, I want to thank you for your fantastic recipe and Jess for allowing me to try them. You have an awesome MUM!!! I have not had a decent biscuit since going vegan 2 years ago. As you can see I had a comfort meal of biscuits and gravy. Brandie made some scramble tofu to go along. Thank you so much sharing!




Ok everyone, lets see what yummy comfort meals we can all come up
with as our weather turn chilly!

Jessica totally rocks!
How great that the ladies at your group loved the enchiladas~ I find omnis to be very suspicious of vegan food ~ like I'd be eating it if it wasn't awesome?!? (actually I would rather eat 'meh' food than an animal, but I don't have to because vegan grub is great!).
I'm glad you finally got to eat vegan biscuits >:o)

YAY for awesome blogging buddies! How nice of Julie to respond on the same day, I am the slowest email responder alive!

Becks is so very kind, I'm not surprised she did that for you!

Nothing thrills me more than when I make a dish that is vegetarian and some times even vegan and poele still go nuts for it.

Why is there such a misconception that all of our food tastes like tree bark. Clue in omnivores, there is another whole world out there besides beef, chiken, pork and seafood.

vegan bloggers unite! too cool!

The enchiladas look amazing and I'm glad that they loved them. really was there any doubt?

the biscuits look fabulous. Makes me want to get in the kitchen.
