Rosemary Cornmeal Waffles

Man, I've been wanting a waffle iron for a long time. This morning I finally got one. When BandMan said he wanted waffles for his Father's Day breakfast, my mind immediately started cycling through which restaurant would have vegan waffles and not be packed this morning - but then it occurred to me that for the same price as going out, I could just buy a waffle iron and make some bomb ass waffles myself; so I did (and that's what I like to call a win-win situation).

Remember a while ago when I told you that I received a care package from a reader? That care package came equipped with some white cornmeal - which is my favorite kind of cornmeal but it's super hard to find here in Boise - and this is the first dish I made with it.

I made these waffles with my personal preferences which are probably way different than your personal preferences; so if you want to sub out the milk, go for it. Any dairy free milk will taste good. If you don't have white cornmeal, screw it; use reggae cornmeal instead. But don't let the rosemary scare you, it's perf in this dish.

Optional toppings include maple syrup, a drizzle of agave, powdered sugar, pumpkin butter (in the pic below), apple butter, etc. Just go with your heart - everything will taste good on these little babies.

2 c cashew milk 
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 c white cornmeal 
1 c rice flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c raw sugar
2 tbsp minced rosemary
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c canola oil
  1. Mix together the cashew milk and the apple cider vinegar and set it to the side for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Combine your dry ingredients and then add in your wet ingredients.
  3. Pour a cup of the batter in your waffle iron and cook to your desired done-ness.
  4. Dress it up (or don't) and chow down.

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

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…
