Manicotti deliciousness...

So Sunday was Father 's day. As many of you have probably guessed, I have started dieting hardcore which means my recipes for vegan delight must wait until my boring rabbit food diet is through.

But, even the best dieters know, you can't be good 100% of the time so I whipped up a Italian favorite in celebration of Jake being a wonderful daddy and boyfriend. Good job baby :)

Vegan Manicotti

Dry, uncooked Manicotti shells (check the label!)

Red pasta or spaghetti sauce

Shredded mozzarella


2 cubes extra firm tofu

4 tablespoons chopped garlic

2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons of Italian Seasoning

1/4 cup shredded vegan mozzarella

In a bowl, use an electric mixer to whip together all of te filling ingredients. They should become creamy. Load into a gallon size ziplock bag and cut off a corner to create your own little makeshift pastry bag.

Fill each manicotti shell (half on one side, half on the other), and lay them 1 layer deep in a casserole dish. When all the shells are filled, cover with a layer of spaghetti sauce and sprinkle with "cheese".

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes.


With Love,

Summer Reading List

The last BOOK BOOK I read was over Memorial Day weekend, and I didn't even finished it. One of those fluff books, you know? Romantic, enduring lead character, but a mysterious shawl that kills people? That kind of crap.

It's been ages since I actually picked up a book book that hasn't involved how to cook vegan, so it's become my summer quest.

First book:
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

By Ransom Riggs

I'm half way through, and can't put it down! And BONUS, it has pictures! Ill review it when I'm finished, but it's looking very, very promising!!! :)

What are you reading this summer?
