Even though we're having a pretty uncomfortable heat spell this weekend, I still wanted to use my oven to make this meatloaf dinner. The recipe was made by using the Magical Loaf Studio. Mine was black bean based and I also added tofu. The vegetables I used were celery, onions, carrot and cauliflower, basically what was in the fridge that needed to be used!
I have an old vintage cookbook that I inherited from my Canadian mother in law that has this recipe in it. Don't know why it's called Radio pudding but the recipe is similar to a french canadian dessert called "pouding chomeur" that my mother in law always made.

Last week I made this broccoli rice casserole following one of those old Campbell's recipes. Instead of cream of mushroom soup, I used Imagine portobello mushroom soup. It was good. Next time I'll add more soup and more salt.
Saw this pull apart cheesebread recipe going around that I had to make vegan. You basically melt Earth Balance, add garlic and scallions. Then you pour this mixture into the crevices of your cut up bread loaf. Wrap it in foil and bake for 10 minutes at 350 F. Then unwrap and fill with cheese, then bake for another 15 minutes unwrapped at about 400 F.
And for weekend dessert, mocha blueberry cake! I used this recipe. I used blueberry instead of plain yogurt so mine had a hint of blueberry flavor.

Here's a good weeknight meal idea. Saute a small chopped onion, 1/2 a chopped green bell pepper and garlic in oil until soft. Then add some cumin, chili powder, salt, a can of white beans (drained and rinsed), 1 cup of tomato sauce, a couple tablespoons of bbq sauce, a teaspoon of sugar, a squirt of mustard and a spoonful of white vinegar and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve on buttered toast. You're welcome!

Tofu scramble sandwich!
This is all for me! I kind of winged it with the frosting. I mixed up in a bowl: a couple TB peanut butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and almond milk. Start with small amounts and work your way to the sweetness and consistency you like. I liked it on the thicker spreadable side though I'm sure it would have still worked as a runny glaze.

Our new cooker. It was time to upgrade to a Zojirushi which is a very well respected brand. It's a japanese brand but the conventional cooker I got was made in Thailand. Since I am Thai, I thought that was a good sign. I ordered it on Amazon and it arrived a couple days later. It's pretty! I grew up using rice cookers with flowers on them.
