Vegan Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are a family favorite around here, so I couldn’t let a month of vegan meals pass without creating a vegan version of my homemade Sloppy Joe recipe.  The funny thing about Sloppy Joes is that even most of the canned sauces are already vegan, so technically, this could be a two ingredient recipe, but since we’re trying to challenge ourselves this month, I […]

Vegan steak and potato foil pouches

Vegan Steak and Potato Foil Pouches

Vegan Steak and Potato Foil Pouches is not a typo, though it is a strange name for a recipe post.    This all began when Bus Boy asked me if I could make garlic steak and potato foil packs for dinner.  I told him they weren’t vegan, and he politely asked me if I could please, Please, PLEASE, make them vegan.  How could I refuse my firstborn?  […]

Four “Accidentally Vegan” Soups

These four vegan soups are not new to Patty Cake’s Pantry.    Just as I did for the Vegan Entrees, I looked through my site to see if there were any vegan soups already in my culinary arsenal.  Until this month, I never set out with the intention of writing a vegan recipe,  but as I reviewed my recipes, I found that I had accidentally created […]

Vegan Butter

It’s day three of my 30 days of vegan, and I’m reporting my third food related crisis.   I really hope this becomes easier as the month progresses.  My problem was that I needed butter.   I had planned to make a simple and delicious tomato sauce to serve over pasta, but my family expects garlic bread with all pasta dishes.  To make garlic bread, I […]

Vegan Recipes for Easter

Vegan Recipes for Easter

Today is the first day of my 30 days of vegan series.  It’s also Easter Sunday.  I realize that it’s also April Fool’s Day, but it’s no April Fool’s joke that Patty Cake’s Pantry will be vegan for the next 30 days.  I hadn’t really thought about Easter when I agreed to spend the next 30 days blogging about Vegan recipes.  Our traditional Easter fare […]

Benita Gibbs of At Meme's Table

Interview with Benita Gibbs from “At Meme’s Table”

As part of our preparation for the 30 days of vegan series, we are trying to learn as much as we can about a vegan diet in order to ensure a successful month.  Today, we are sharing an interview with Benita Gibbs of “At Meme’s Table.”  Benita and her husband, Tony, were the first people that Baker’s Man and I met when we attended The […]
