Food rundown.


Thursday night's dinner: macaroni with esme's special sauce (delicious!) with steamed carrots and kale. Haven't made this sauce in so long and so glad I thought of it. Husband approved!


Saturday's lunch: romaine salad with red cabbage, cucumber, homemade croutons and tahini dill dressing,


Saturday's dessert: parsnip-carrot cake with a mess of a cream "cheese" glaze (didn't set up at all!) Got the recipe for this cake in a bargain book I found at Borders called 'The Ultimate Book of Vegan Cooking'. I had problems with the batter because the recipe didn't call for enough liquid so I had to add some in increments. Good thing the cake turned out. It was wonderfully spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and very moist but the frosting recipe was a disaster. It didn't ruin the taste so I was happy enough.


Saturday's dinner: glorious quesadilla with Daiya cheese, roasted red peppers and caramelized onions. This is a vegan copycat of Giada's Italian quesadilla recipe. Amaaaazing.

Those quesadillas look tasty. That is really the only way I miss cheese at all. I had daiya at Z pizza, but have yet to pick some up at whole foods. It looks like quesadillas are def the reason to do so, thanks for the inspiration!

That cake looks great. I even like the look of the frosting running down the side!

It's been too long since I've had esme's special sauce, too. Everything looks great, but I love that quesadilla shot.

The quesadillas look awesome, and Esme's sauce recipe looks really tasty. Nice salad too - I'm missing my fresh greens this winter, and it looks fantastic!

All your food looks fantastic, it makes me feel hungry!

p.s. I bought that book from the border too, I've never tried any recipe but it's good to know that you had problem with this cake!
