Vegetarian Recipe Retrospective: All-Time Faves!

Wholegrain Confetti Zucchini Cakes: Inspired by Crab Cakes

A few days ago, the folks at Veg Online let us know they’ve decided to recognize our site as an Outstanding Vegetarian Blog. We’re especially pleased to hear this, as a blog that is not entirely vegetarian but loves to do a whole LOT of vegetarian cooking.

(Note from Donna: When Anne and I reunited as a birth mother and daughter in 1999, it was cooking that made our reunion so joyful. She was the first vegetarian I knew who was also a phenomenal cook. She and I shared our love of cooking and bonded over my kitchen stove. We spent long hours well into the wee hours of the mornings getting to know each other and sharing our best recipes. And the rest, as they say, is history!)

We’ve always been big fans of the Meatless Monday concept and site, and our first cookbook was entirely vegetarian. In case you missed the memo, this was our first collaboration:

Our first cookbook!

And this is where the famous Ultimate Veggie Chili made its debut, eventually earning us a spot on Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown (title of recipe preceded show, just a fortuitous coincidence).

So we thought it was a perfect time to share some of our favorite vegetarian and vegan creations from the past 3 years (!) in our blogging life. Read on . . .
