Hey! I Won Something! - Gluten Free Day 3

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I made some stuffing to take part in Hannah's barley stuffing challenge.  

Lucky for me, I was the only one who decided to actually MAKE a barley stuffing, so guess what?  I won!  Yay!!  You have the privilege of viewing the recipe right here!  ABC Stuffing.  

Hehe.  Seriously though, I was super excited because not do I get the pleasure of winning, but I also get the pleasure of recieving a wonderful gift from Hannah in the mail yesterday!!

If you can't tell, it is a copy of the Everyday Dish cooking DVD with Julie Hasson, Dreena Burton, and Bryanna Clark Grogan!  Thank you so much Hannah, I really do appreciate it!  Not only because I get to watch a vegan cooking show on my own TV, but because it is chock full of recipes!  I am something of a cookbook hoarder, I love them.  

Obviously though, this is not in book form.  Just as I was prepared to sit down and watch this with pencil and paper in hand, I noticed a little note on the CD that said "Print Recipes from DVD-ROM drive".  Print?  Awesome!  

So because I'm really cool, I totally didn't format them all, print them out, and make my own little cookbook with them.  

Oh wait, I did.  

The first thing on my list is Dreena's Mint Melties.  Definitely.  I don't have any of these ladies' books, so this is really cool.  Thanks again Hannah!  

Now, I admit I have been on a little Vegan with A Vengeance kick lately.  I have ingredients for two other recipes all ready for tomorrow and Friday too.  Today we had Stewed Tofu and Potatoes in Miso Gravy.

This was good, homey and warm.  My mom said it was the perfect meal you'd like to have on a snowy day.  I almost completely followed the recipe as given (for once), although I used barley miso instead of chickpea...I've never seen chickpea miso.  I also added kale.  

Anyone have any super awesome onion tricks?  Its usually not so bad, but I was literally in tears between the shallots and one very very large onion! 

I had a fabulous day at the gym today.  I started a new workout routine, I'm doing a body split for the first time in over two years, my routines are usually full body.  Today was chest day, then a 3 mile run.  It went really well, I'm feeling really good about it, which was great because I didn't love the last plan I did.     

Big thanks again to Hannah!  


  1. I keep seeing that recipe and it looks even more delicious than the title sounds!!! Mmm, I agree...the perfect meal for a snowy day (like today!)

  2. I'm jealous that you actually had a snowy day today! It was just cold here, brr.

  3. how nice that you won the dvd! your printed book looks great. I have a couple of dvds worth of family recipes. I think I should print and bind them like you did :)

  4. That's really cool that you have a dvd of family recipes!

  5. Yay, I'm so glad you liked the prize! I was really struggling to figure out what to send, so it's a relief to hear that you're already enjoying it! Can't wait to hear what you think of the recipes that you make as well. :)

    Congrats again on winning!
