Vegan Peanut Penne Pasta

Share


Pasta dishes can sometimes be complicated while others super simple. This Penne Pasta Recipe literally has dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes. I was really impressed with how easy everything was and how delicious it turned out. Almost all the ingredients I had on hand at home and so I just decided to whip something up real quick.

Delicious Rating: I rated this easy to cook, and delicious to eat, viagra 40mg and a definite on cooking again. Use different veggies if you prefer but the carrot and broccoli combo is great. Less spice for children. We had some leftovers and it was important that I add some more soy milk to the pasta when I reheated it for a smooth texture of the sauce. Let me know how this recipe turns out for you!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Share

Peanut Butter Cookies have to be a classic in most homes. I can remember being young and waiting by the oven for the peanut butter cookies to be done. As a kid you already feel a bit special being able to make the ‘criss-cross’ pattern with the fork. Now you wait. You watch through the tiny window oven until they are done. Yum! Warm cookies fresh out of the oven are always the best. But the true test is how the hold up 30-minutes later. Still soft and chewy? Or hard and crunchy?

Delicious Rating: These didn’t stand up to the test of time. Hot out the oven they are soft and chewy. Smooth peanut butter taste and great dunked in milk. But 30 minutes or so later, or even the next day, super crunchy and hard. The consensus? Easy recipe to make & bake, good out of the oven, but won’t make again. Stick to my Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies made with Oatmeal and let me know what you think!

Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Share

I am not a big cookie fan. Sure, clinic see I like cookies but I am not Cookie Monster who devours every cookie in site. But these Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies I did devour. They were sooo soft and actually chewy. I love a peanut butter cookie that tastes a lot like peanut butter. Sometimes peanut butter cookies can be crunchy and hard, pilule and hardly even taste like peanut butter! These are the exact opposite and perfect for the peanut butter lover.

Delicious Rating: Oatmeal is the secret ingredient in these cookies. It really adds some depth of flavor and constitutes to the super chewiness of the cookie. This easy recipe is my only go-to for peanut butter cookies. This is the best I have made and eaten. They are just delicious! Please share your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe with me so I can compare!

Szechuan Peanut Pasta

Share

A Pasta that can be served at room temperature is known as a Pasta Salad. They are great for picnics or barbecues. If you are a working mom, pasta salads are great to make ahead of a busy day and serve for dinner. I made this on a very hot day and it worked out great to eat out on the patio. If you like peanut butter then this recipe is definitely for you. The heat is kicked up with red pepper flakes so if that isn’t for you, please omit! What is great is that this can be served for all your vegetarian or vegan friends and it is delicious even for carnivores. Yay for Vegetarian & Vegan Recipes!

This recipe comes from “The Good Housekeeping Step-by-Step Cookbook.” My Dad gave me this cookbook after I got married. It has become my favorite of the few cookbooks that I own. Every recipe that I want to cook has been dog-eared or bookmarked with a post-it. Others that I have cooked have notes and food stains all over! So this Szechuan Peanut Pasta is one of my “Bookmarked Recipes” and perfect for the challenge of the same name hosted by Jacqueline from Tinned Tomatoes and Ruth’s Kitchen Experiments is the Challenge founder!

It is also going to be sent into Anamika at the “Taste Junction” for her event “Drive Me Nuts”! This is my 3rd & 4th food blog event! Yay!

Delicious Rating: A very simple and easy dinner this is. You can use leftover pasta as well to use it up. The sauce is delicious! It is creamy, spicy, and salty all together. Don’t overcook the snow peas. The crunch gives such great texture to the pasta and sauce. As it sits the sauce does get a bit too creamy. If this happens to you add 1/4 cup of pasta water or any hot water and stir. The sauce will loosen up and it will be easy to serve. I really liked this pasta salad. I plan on making this easy recipe again in the future.
