Veganomicon's scalloped potatoes

Tonight I made a fabulous recipe from Veganomicon. Actually, I made two recipes, and my husband and I enjoyed them both. The first one is called Herb-Scalloped Potatoes. They were delicious. As with the Lemony Roasted Potatoes, I had to play with the oven time a bit, but that's okay. I also realized that I definitely have to make more than the recipe calls for. We ate every bit of it - even the baby ate it! I'll post my revised recipe after I make it again and have time to play with it a bit. They're made from potatoes, soymilk, broth, nooch, and spices.

The other recipe I made was the Southwestern Corn Pudding. It's sweet and chewy and very nice. Unfortunately, only my four year old would eat it, so I won't be making it again. It was a very pretty dish. The picture from my phone does NOT do the dish justice. I used blue corn meal, plus there was red from the red pepper, green from the jalapeno, and yellow from the corn - very colorful!

The peanut butter/banana crepe roll ups were iffy. I screwed them up this morning. I mashed the banana up too much making it very gooey. When I made them for the rest of us for lunch, I just mashed the banana enough to squish it a bit, and the roll ups were good. The kids are willing to give them another shot tomorrow.

Hurry Up Alfredo

I tried a new recipe tonight from a blog I follow: Vegan Yum Yum. Apparently she has a cookbook coming out and this recipe is going to be in it. This recipe is super easy and pretty tasty. It was a little bland for me, but my family chowed down on it. I changed it up a little using Bragg for the tamari. I only had one tablespoon though of Bragg, so I used it and then added one teaspoon of salt. Next time I am going to plan on sauteing some vegetables to add to it. Sorry for the poor picture. My camera isn't working, so I took this on my phone. Here's the recipe Hurry Up Alfredo

I've been trying to brain storm some new ideas for the kidlets lunches. One idea I came up with was to make cornmeal crepes and put some peanut butter, honey, and bananas in the middle. I made the crepes tonight. I used this crepes recipe blueberry crepes. I'm anxious to see how they roll ups turn out.
