Pumpkin bread pudding

Before going vegan I tried pumpkin bread pudding for the first time while visiting Whole Foods. It was delicious. I found myself going back for more at least once a week. After going vegan I never thought to veganize it. I’m not sure why. I guess it was one of those things I assumed was far too complicated and just stayed away? In fact the first time I tried to veganize it I failed miserably. Last night I decided to try again. I had everything on hand and decided to just go for it. Luckily this time I ended up with a delicious pumpkin bread pudding.

I’m not going to post the recipe just yet. There are a few things I want to try out before sharing with you all. I’d love to add toasted crushed pecans and maybe even a little bourbon. I didn’t have either of those on hand which is why I didn’t do it in the first place. I do think they’d be great additions. Especially the toasted pecans. Yum!

Holiday baking

These are the delicious gingerbread cookies that Ethan and I baked last week. Every year I make gingerbread cookies I use the same recipe. I don’t add the cloves though. I know I’ve mentioned this before… I don’t care for cloves. It really is a quick and easy gingerbread cookie recipe. Of course I’m the one who ends up eating them all. No one here likes gingerbread. I know. How weird are these people?

Anyway, not everyone says meh at cookies. In fact lots of people love them. Which is why I’ll be sending some delicious baked cookies to my close family and friends this year for Christmas. My cousins have already voted for a pumpkin/oatmeal combo. I’m not really sure what to send everyone else though. What are your favorite holiday cookies? Is there something you bake more of during the holidays? I’d really appreciate your input. I do have a holiday baking cookbook, but I’d rather see what you wonderful people have planned.

Oh and before I go, EatAChiquita featured my Banana Bread French Toast! You can read the article and get the full recipe here. Isn’t that cool? It sort of made my day.

Butterscotch cookies

One of the things I love most about the holidays is baking. I’ve always loved baking and have been known to whip up batches of cookies and brownies in the middle of the night. That’s right. When most people are sleeping I’m in the kitchen baking up a storm. It’s peaceful and it’s usually the ONLY time I get the entire kitchen all to myself. Anyway, I tend to bake a lot more during the holidays. I guess most people do? To me the holidays just aren’t complete unless they’re filled with lots of delicious baked goods. In fact this year I’m hoping to send out lots of goodies to family and friends. I know. BEST GIFT EVAR! :)

The cookies shown are supposed to be butterscotch. I only found a handful of recipes online and the majority called for pecans. I used all of my pecans during Thanksgiving so I had to leave that out. I didn’t think it would make much of a difference, but I guess it did because these taste like butt. I suppose I could have done something wrong somewhere along the line. I am still sick after all. After the first batch ended up in the trash I figured I’d dress up the others with some Christmas colored sprinkles so that I could at least get a pretty picture out of the deal. So there you have it. I ended Vegan MoFo on a fail. But hey, there’s always tomorrow. Or the next day?

Probably the next day. I’m hoping everyone continues to blog lots of delicious vegan goodness. I’m going to need lots of ideas/inspiration throughout the holiday season. Take care fellow MoFockers. I’ve seriously been dying to say that all month.
