Happy Casserole Day!

Bloggers of the Day: Annie & Dan at Meet The Shannons
Pubs: Betty Goes Vegan

Annie and Dan Shannon are the retrocool couple behind the Betty Crocker Project, vegifying Betty Crocker's oldfashioned favorites into crueltyfree comfort food classics. While they do create their own original dishes, their BCP recipes satisfy your hunger in the way that only simmering stews and sizzling skilletfries from back in The Apron Era can. This is flavorful and filling potluck and Sunday dinner kind of stuff. Casseroles are king in this cuisine, but they're not worth their weight in noodles unless they're covered in golden crunch...crushed chips, fried onions and crispy tater tots crown these marvelous meals. Scoop up a plateful, come back for seconds, then sink into your happy casserole place.  :)

Occasionally they veganize other cookbooks too...  ;)

The Shannons also feature vegan city and restaurant guides, pantry guides and fashion guides, as well as an Action Center providing links to animalfriendly and compassionate causes. Currently they are raising funds through Farm Sanctuary's Walk For can too!  :)

How does your favorite casserole roll? Do you top it with crunchies and crispies? Do you wear an apron when you cook?  :)

• Corn Chowder Day...stir up some sunshiney yum!  :)

Ellen is a Bellingham-based mom concerned with feeding her family healthy wholesome nonGMO meals that are crueltyfree and downright delicious! She writes articles such as BBQ THROWDOWN: Vegan vs. carnivore, husband vs. wife and Fall to winter: Changes in the kitchen for the local press that include plenty of her hungerstomping recipes too. Her Corn Chowder is exactly what chowder should be...warm, comfy and soulfully yumful. Catch more of her cornbased dishes and explore the rest of this mama's menu!  :)

Corn starch counts too...  :)

• 1 ear of corn = about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of corn kernels
• Ellen recommends Trader Joe's Roasted Corn if you can't get fresh corn

Which world food issue concerns you the most? Do films like King Corn inspire you to act? What traditional corn dish is your favorite? Are you being nice to your boss today?  ;)
