Savory Zucchini Bread with Olives

I'm a pretty terrible baker. No seriously it's true. I know its true because baking is a science and I'm no scientist. For real though, I am no good at cooking from recipes. I'm really good at writing them, I just suck at following them. So because I don't understand the science behind baking and I'm rogue when it comes to following instructions, my baking projects usually turn to shit.

This one wasn't too bad though. I actually love how it turned out. This bread is a whole ass meal so don't be thinking you'll just have some on the side. It's super filling, ok.

It's also gluten free because Vegan MoFo decreed it so.  I don't have a problem with the gluten free part of the prompt (just the baking part). I'm not gluten intolerant but I do eat gluten free most of the time - I'd say 90% of the time. I admit that my love for beer gets in the way of making that 100% of the time - but eh, what are ya gonna do?

Have a slice of this bread in the morning for breakfast with a cup of black coffee.

ICYMI, yesterday I shared my go-to tip for making a creamy dish when you forgot to soak some cashews, or you're cooking for someone with a nut allergy. Check it out by clicking HERE!

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
