Happy National Linguine Day!

Bloggers of the Day: Ketty & Neal at Luminous Vegans

I came for the cobbler, fell in love with Nikko and Miles, discovered Ketty's craftiness and Neal's epic talents and happily remain for Ketty's imaginative and inspiring recipes. She cooks a lot like my mom...a little of this, a handful of that magically transform into a masterpiece of yumfulness! Witness the wonder of Luminous Linguine!  ;)

How do you love your linguine? Do you prefer long noodles or short shapes? Big dogs or little kittens? What's one of your hidden crafty talents?  :)

Happy Eat a Hoagie Day!

Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food

Quick & Easy Vegan Celebrations

Hoagie, hero, grinder, sub...a big fat doublehandful of a sandwich can go by many names but it needs to be superpacked with your fave sammie ingredients and sauces and wedged into a giant chunk of bread. Go with traditional vegan meats and cheeses or take it up a notch with Alice's spectacular tempeh!

In addition to her professional website, Alice runs two foodfocused websites...The Lady and Seitan where she puts a vegan spin on Paula Deen's southern cooking and Vegan Guinea Pig where she posts reviews and recipes of her own. Her hoagie is a crowdpleaser especially on gamedays like today...if you don't have all the ingredients, sub in what you like and make your hoagie your own!  :)

Happy National Peanut Day!

Blogger of the Day: Kimberly at Two Black Haired Girls

Kimberly is magically talented at many things...
• she's an awardwinning writer of fascinating fiction and supernatural spookyness
• she dreams up airy and ethereal melodies
• she teaches singing and musical performance
• she's a faithful companion to The Kikimonster!

In between all of that she creates compassionate deliciousness in her kitchen! She serves everything from pancakes to pizzas but she's half Japanese so noodles and raw rolls rule her realm! Peanuts enrich many of her dishes...of course if you don't prefer peanuts, just sub in your favorite nut!  :)

Do you mix noodles and nuts? What's your favorite sweet nutty treat? Would you rather be a famous & talented writer or a famous & talented singer?  ;)

Happy Fresh Fig Day!

Blogger of the Day: Adair at Lentil Breakdown

Dried figs are delish all year long but fresh figs are a seasonal treat, peaking in late summer/early fall. They provide fiber and calcium and potassium and sweetly satisfying energy...I like them best as a power snack with a handful of cashews but brilliant Adair dresses them up in a quick dip of chocolate. Her vegfriendly Lentil Breakdown simmers with sly and clever wit, a touch of food politics and plenty of healthy seasonal fare. We're nearing the end of the luscious Calimyrna fig season so scoop some up and plunge them into a daring dip...yumza!  ;)

Do you eat fresh figs? Which variety is your favorite? What other seasonal fruits do you look for in fall? What's your favorite power snack?  :)
