Next up, Soyrizo black bean breakfast patties with a cheezy verde sauce. that is a mouthful eh?
i love having breakfast for dinner, and with the added bonus of scoring a waffle maker for my birthday(thanks Lynn!), no we can really seal the deal. here we have the patties, the sauce with nutritional yeast, spices and verde sauce. fresh tomatoes, homemade waffles and pineapple.
quite a feast!

curry skills are now awesome. waffle skills are still coming along. i am much too impatient for that waffle maker.......
i will be working on putting together all these recipes in text for anyone interested. my recipe writing down skills obviously need improvment. hopefully i will be posting more lolo porn too...hehe.

Coffee cake is delicious!

so we decided to have tacos for dinner the other night. really simple, but really really good. we had these awesome avocados and my tacos were loaded with a traditional style guac. yum. the tacos were also filled with tomatoes, cilantro, fresh cabbage, and vegan taco filling. a nice fruit salad(peaches,nectarines,pineapple,banana,and grapes with agave) on the side and a great white beer from lost coast brewery and we are chillin.
here we go:

While we were at the grocery store buying a few things and getting stuff to make tacos, we saw a box mix of coffee cake. we thought this looked great. so, after we had tacos i made
a version of this coffee cake. It was so good! I only took one picture of it though...which really doesn't do this enough justice. I did make a few adjustments in the egg replacer department and it turned out wonderful. our new favorite dessert. here it is
