Your Vegan Mom You guys, the broccoli we talked about? It's not ready yet. It cooks a long time.* In the meantime, let's talk about birthdays. In Desmond's cake from last fall (seven layers!) And last summer, Felix's pumpkin pancakes were held together by yogurt frosting (soy yogurt + raw cashews + maple syrup -> Blend until smooth.) For Grandma, we made multigrain pancakes with layers of lightly sweetened yogurt and berries. To turn our basic pancake recipe multigrain, I used a cup of whole spelt flour, 1/4 cup of cornmeal, 1/2 cup of all purpose, and 1 cup of oats in place of the 2 cups of flour called for. I love birthdays and pancakes and watching my boys snuggled up against their grandma at breakfast. It's been a good day. *(Also, I'm not 100% happy with the recipe yet.

Meat-free Loaf Cupcakes with Butternut Squash Puree The other day I was perusing Pinterest and I found a pin for Rachel Ray’s Meatloaf Muffins. If you have been reading my blog awhile, you know I love individually portioned food. So of course I needed to make some Meatlessloaf Muffins. Then I thought…why make muffins when you can make cupcakes? Earlier this week I made Mashed Butternut Squash with Sage inspired by this recipe. I figured it would be hard to say “No” to lentil/walnut meatless “cupcakes” with a sage butternut squash puree “frosting”. You can reply, “Cupcakes.” And it might, just might, be the perfect way to get them excited about lentils and squash.
