I'm in my second year at uni and didnt get the opportunity to cook myself meals before I started uni, so my passion for cooking developed solely over feeding myself on a student's budget last year. I plan to share this passion and see if I can reach out to some students in a similar way =]

I really miss being able to click on people's website links from right under their avatars. Is it possible to bring this back? I guess I should ask somewhere else.

Anyhow, I am going to do "Around The World in 30 Days," a different meal from a different country - in geographical order! - for the whole month.

Truth be told though, I am cheating and doing some advanced cooking. Tonight we are having Haitian Voo Doo Chicken. For realzies!

I was just gonna wing it since this is my first MoFo, but we're leaving Chicago on Nov 6th on a road trip to Montana, where we'll be staying for a month. So...I think I'll do sort of a "vegan on the road" theme along with a "Vegan in Billings, Montana" theme. I know there is a group in Billings that does monthly vegan potlucks, so I'll make sure to attend that as well!

I'll be blogging at VeganBunzOfCinnamon


While Montana may not seem to be the vegan mecca, they have an incredible grocery store in town that has a great bulk section and lots of great vegan stuffs called the Good Earth Market.


Ooh, I've been to that place! They used to have really delicious Vegan Macaroni Salad. I hope they still make it....

Is it weird that I'm looking forward to Papa John's???

I'm going to steal Mo's idea of doing a video blog. I've never done one and MoFo is the perfect time to try!

I'm also going to attempt a few big cooking projects in honor of mofo, including ba pao and pierogies.

I will be working a LOT (like sixty plus hours a week) in November, so my theme will be delicious food for people without a lot of time.

Me and the wife are starting a whole new blog, http://ourlifeinsandarna.wordpress.com/, that will go live on 1 November. We will make traditional Swedish home cooking only for a month, with recipes of course. Lots of soy meat and seitan....

Is it too late to jump on the MoFo bandwagon?

Ummm... I think I'm going to take pictures of my favourite vegan treats from shops and restaurants around here (bunny-shaped doushabao!!!!), and thanks to my amazing ppk swap partner I also have a brand-new copy of American Vegan Kitchen now, which means I really need to cook more and post pics. Sounds like a plan?

My plan is to introduce some recipes from my region in germany to the vegan world.
This idea came to my mind because germans and especially people from my region, which is were cosmopolitan and mordern compared to most of german regions seems to lose the connection to tradiotinal recipes.
I first planed do to some japanese and turkish recipes too, because we have lots of migrants from turkey and japan living here in Düsseldorf but then I decided to go all traditional.
I red lots of articles about this kind of food so far and the fact that the food had to be vegetarian or even vegan eccept of sundays lunch in the past made me wonder how the experiment will end, because the opinion that most of the people living here have is, that traditional german food has to have tons of meat in it.
The other point is, that I want to show that every region in germany has its own unique recipes and that it's not the same bavarian and often even austrian food everywhere.
I hope, that I will be able to bring back some memories from my childhood and to discover traditional dishes from my region, that I never had before.

I've never really done a theme before for mofo, but this year I'm doing a general theme of 'favorites'. It will include some favorite restaurants, favorite recipes, favorite cookbooks, favorite kitchen things, etc. On Friday's I plan to do a cookbook review/giveaway.

All these ideas mentioned sound great and I can't wait to read your blogs!

Cookbook challenge is fun - where you make something new from random cookbooks?? one year I did a hummus challenge and made humus from a bunch of cookbooks and did a taste off to see which one I liked best.

Wow! Sounds great!!! I've just checked Your blog and two first recipes are great and since tradirional dishes in Central Europe are similar (or at least ingredients and the idea) I think that I will use them in the future.

I'm doing vegan lunch for adults. Mainly packing lunches, but maybe some lunch memories, too.

I tried the "wing it" approach last mofo and pretty much failed. I'm thinking I'll write them all on the weekends, then post daily.
I'm not set on a theme, but I'm toying around with "Vegan A-Z" with each post dealing with a letter of the alphabet. Hard thing is that leaves 4 days unaccounted for.

There's the wordless Wednesday meme. It would be a good contrast with the alphabet.

I should probably take your lead Kelly! If I don't plan, it probably won't be a good Mofo.

I liked my theme last year of veganizing favorite recipes that people sent me. I don't think I will have time for that this year. Maybe I will feature a local vegan friendly place each week and post one of thier dishes every day. Then I can be lazy and not cook...wait, that won't work because I love to cook. Maybe I will feature the many ways to use the many different types of chile peppers or regional ingredients. Oh blast! I still have no idea. I must nail this down stat.

OH my blog? Vegan Conversion Challenge. Come visit.


I think that at least once a week you should feature Fred cooking.

What about featuring vegan wines? I thought about doing a vegan Booze-day once a week, but you two would be much better than me.

I get a bi-weekly produce box from an organic buyers coop/club, I was thinking I would up it to a weekly box, and then do my best to use the entire box. The box is completely random, so it requires some creative planning and google-fu to find recipes. Would prob shoot for a 4-5 course meal, and post the menu during the weekend prior to the gathering. Then post each recipe 1 day at a time starting Monday, with reviews and suggestions from friends that tried them. That way I can attempt to follow my boring calorie restricted mostly grain, beans, and steamed veggie diet during the week, and still have plenty to blog about for MoFo M-F...
