VeganMofo Giveaway: a 2fer!

Tonight's dinner was completely uninspired.  A soggy sandwich that I forgot to bring to work for lunch today and a bowl of cereal.

So...tonight's post is a GIVEAWAY!  Leave a comment (on the Blog or on Facebook) telling me your favorite Thanksgiving dessert (because I am feeling uninspired for that meal as well) and I will pick 1 random winner to receive 2 copies of 500 Vegan Recipes...yep, 2.  That's one for you, and one to give away! 

Yes, I will ship international.  I will pick a winner, at 10 pm PST on Friday 11/12/10.

Inspire me, people.

I love pumpkin cheesecake. Not a huge fan of traditional apple pie, but apple strudel hits the spot!

This year I'd like to work on a crunchy caramelized garnish for the cheesecake - bourbon based.

Andrea said...

I'd have to say last year's dessert of almond tuilles with pumpkin mousse is my new favorite.

icitea said...

Mmm... I love cranberry trifle the best! Don't know how to make it, but my aunt makes one every year for the potlucks. It's to die for...

It's all about pecan pie!

celyn said...

Thank you for the lovely giveaway! If I could have a dream Thanksgiving, I wouldn't have dessert; I would instead have a Dr. Cow nut cheese plate. However, if this was not possible, I have never been able to resist pecan pie!

Elisabeth said...

Tofu Pumpkin pie with candied cranberries!

Jackie Smith (the other one) said...

cheap purchase - Trader Joe's apple streudel

expen$ive purchase - Real Food Daily's gingerbread cake (INCREDIBLE)

make at home - coconut lemon bundt cake from Veganomicon

Apple or Pumpkin Pie - call me unadventurous but I don't really get to eat them other times in the year!

Samantha said...

This year I made (for Canadian thanksgiving) a chocolate-pumpkin pudding (I had intended to make a pie but was too busy with the other courses to make a crust). It went over very well and was rather easy: blend together mori nu tofu, pumpkin, cocoa, maple syrup, cinnamon/nutmeg/cloves/ginger, throw in dark chocolate shavings, et voila!

Tastes Like Chick'n' said...

pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! yum!

kittee said...

I really love my mom's fruit compote, there is a link to it on pakupaku.info if you wanna see it. It is basically canned fruit in a sugar simple, but it is amazing with stuffin' and all the trimmings and really easy to make, too.

I'm making the pecan pie from the Millenium cookbook with a bourbon sauce to go with it. If you want to get away from pie, a couple years ago I made a pumpkin roulade from Bryanna's Vegan Feast newsletter that was outrageously good.

Ali - YumVeggieBurger said...

not too surprising, but my favorite is pumpkin pie... followed by a slice of pecan pie! my grandmother always served both (large family) and I loved balancing the spice of the pumpkin with the overly-sweet sweetness of the pecan.

Tami said...

My favorite is cranberry cake with warm butter sauce, a family tradition that was easily veganized. The cake isn't overly sweet, but the rich and warm butter sauce is amazing. When I eat it, I'm reminded of my childhood.

bitt said...

Chai-chocolate raw cheesecake is so amazing. it's my seasonal fave

Jeni Treehugger said...

This is a GREAT give-away!
We don't have thanksgiving this side of the pond but I can imagine I'd want to make something light after all the delicious main course chowing that has been going on. So bearing that in mind I'd make something like Cranberry sorbet.

HayMarket8 said...

My nana's cherry pie. She used to bake one especially for me each year because I could not be trusted to share. I miss her.

Nichole said...

ever since i made apple strudel the first time for christmas a few years ago i'm not allowed to come to holiday dinners without it! there also has to be something pumpkiny to satisfy me.

sgcorrie said...

The black bottom peanut butter silk pie from VwaV. OH MY GOODNESS.

amymylove said...

vegan pumpkin pie!!!

Emma said...

What a fab giveaway, all my friends are interested in vegan cooking now I've been sharing my delights! I'd love to give one of them a cookbook (as well as keep one for myself of course!). Well, we don't have thanksgiving over here in England but I think I would like to make a chocolate tart with a gingerbread crust..
That sounds yummy and a little seasonal :)

Kuku said...

My favourite custard pie in a dessert bowl: black-forest cherry dessert. :)

Ingen said...

We don't celebrate thanksgiving here... But I wouldn't say no to a pecan pie!

k, also kk, also kara, also kristina said...

My mom's pecan pie. I'm going home for Thanksgiving this year, and I'm planning on stealing a bunch of her recipes and veganizing them. This is definitely on my list.`

phoenix said...

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with vegan tiramisu. But then we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here, at least not the same way. If you want something more seasonal, I'd say cranberry trifle or gingerbread apple cake. :)

Jessica said...

Black Bottom Cupcakes (with chocolate chips in the cream cheese) were always a treat in my family on Thanksgiving. Now I veganize them and everyone loves them!

Vanessa said...

I'm Canadian so I already did Thanksgiving. This year I made the Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar pumpkin brownies! They didn't set properly unfortuantely (too hard to find tinned pumpkin in the UK so had to used jarred stuff that had the same consistency as baby food) but they were still great all goey served with ice cream. Everyone loved them! New favourite!

Kip said...

Whenever I'm back in the states for Thanksgiving with my family, I'd have to say it's all about the pies. That's mainly because I don't eat them so much here in the UK, so it's a novelty! mmm Pumpkin.

KTBuns said...

Pumpkin roll, yum yum!!

Anonymous said...

If it has to be traditional, then it has to be pumpkin pie. But my favorite dessert that I have eaten on thanksgiving had to be peanut butter cheesecake with a pretzel crust. It was a PITA to make, but sooooo worth it in the end.

Laura H-B said...

I like Your Vegan Mom's Chocolate Pecan Pie (http://www.yourveganmom.com/your_vegan_mom/2009/12/chocolate-pecan-pie.html) ! I add peanut butter to it, yummm!

Hannah said...

I did a Thanksgiving test-run of a stuffed delicata squash, and really loved it... Hopefully I'll post the recipe soon!

Linny said...

Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake - thanks for the giveaway!!

Jade said...

I love the pumpkin cheesecake, too, but the best thing I ever made was a caramel apple pie! Yummy!

Keri - I Eat Trees said...

Chocolate mousse caramel apple pie and Pumpkin Pecan Cranberry Cheesecake... Yeah, those sound awesome! :D

RachelBethany said...

Pomegranate or pumpkin cheesecake!

rivka said...

I am so excited to be making pumpkin cheesecake!

Noelle said...

Vegan pecan pie because that has always been my favorite, made with maple syrup. YUM!

Leah said...

I love http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2007/11/double-layer-pumpkin-cheesecake.html/comment-page-1#comment-7891

Sooo good!

Vegan in Salem said...

Normally I would say Pumpkin Pie..but I just discovered these Pumpkin Pie Brownie Cupcakes on the Oh She Glows blog, and I am so making those for Thanksgiving dessert! NOM!

Jennifer C. said...

vegan sweet potato casserole and vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Those are the two I'm making this year. They are delish!

Anonymous said...

Well, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Estonia. But I think I'd love pumpkin pie because I love everything made of pumpkin. :)

Shanna said...

Chocolate Cake

VeggieAmanda said...

Thanks for having a giveaway! Awesome! My favorite dessert is a vegan apple and cranberry pie. Mmm!

Chi Princesa said...

Banana Pudding!

Sara Thompson said...

Typically I say that my favorite is pecan pie, but this year I am looking forward to making gingerbread with pumpkin spice icing from Oh She Glows. I've already made it twice since she posted it and am addicted! I keep thinking about it! The frosting is so simple, yet so tasty! I may make it into a roll, just to be different for T-giving.

Adeline said...

Can't beat warm apple pie!

Nicole said...

I made my pumpkin brownie tarts for Canadian Thanksgiving.

Anonymous said...

Green Bean Casserole is where it's at! :)

Steph Timms said...

I adore the Pumpkin Crumb Cake with the Pecan Streusel.

Naptime Scrapper said...

We always do a fruit crisp here. Our Thanksgiving is already over but this year we did apple cranberry, it was delish!

The Kuntrageous Vegan said...

Pecan Pumpkin Pie...mmmm.

Shannon said...

I love pumpkin pie, duh, but I always make something with cranberries. Last year I made a cranberry upside down cake, it was so pretty! Cranberry bundt cake has been made as well.

moonsword said...

Brandied Fig Cookies

Molly G said...

Yes, I know I'm dull, but Pumpkin Pie. Good, old fashioned, vegan pumpkin pie. Based on Bryanna Clark Grogan's recipe found here: http://veganconnection.com/recipes/pumpkin_pie.htm It's a winner every time!!

Erin said...

Fudge! My grandmother made the best fudge...

Chocolate is great but peanut butter is better.

Jane M said...

I'm going to have to go with gingerbread cupcakes smothered in pumpkin icing. sooo yummy!

Stacey said...

A relatively new Thanksgiving favorite of mine is the Pioneer Woman's Mashed Potatoes recipe. It can easily be veganized. It allows you to make your mashed potatoes the day before and free up more space/time in your kitchen on Thanksgiving day.

sara said...

i'm a fan of good ol' pecan pie. i never eat it any other time of the year, so it's a treat. this year, however, i'm being tempted into making apple pie with pecan crust. decisions, decisions!

Jessie said...

I'm a fan of cranberry desserts. I once made a cranberry=apple upside down cake that was a big hit.

I really just subbed out the pineapple for cranberries and apples in a basic pineapple upside down cake.

markustrombonus said...

Pecan Pie all the way.

Kristen said...

Definitely the pumpkin cheesecake from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. Last year my family demanded I make another after they polished off the first one I made.

Stacy said...

My mom's sweet potato pie. It is sweetened with only real maple syrup and out of this world!

I would absolutely love to win the 500 Vegan Recipes!

susan said...

pumpkin roll AND apples and walnuts rolled in phyllo dough....

Erin said...

Usually I would go with the standard pumpkin pie, but we have a friend who doesn't like pumpkin, so I've done cranberry-spice bundt cake in the past, and am thinking about the Gingerbread Apple Pie from Vegan With a Vengeance this year.

*Autumn Tao* said...

Apple pie.. .any style!

vegan, today! said...

My dad's side of the family is Italian so I like to make cannoli's filled with pumpkin cream cheese (homemade, cashew-based cheese) and drizzle it with (more homemade) caramel sauce. walnuts for garnish!

Shirley said...

Pumpkin pie here too. But I usually use carrots because I seldom see pumpkins here. Something I would like to try is chocolate pumpkin squares.

Lisa Veggie said...

Apple crisp! Healthier than pie, and easier, too. I like the recipe in the Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.

Josiane said...

Pecan pie! I really need to veganize my grandma's recipe or to make up my own because I won't go without pecan pie again this year... or maybe I could follow the one in 500 Vegan Recipes - there must be a recipe for pecan pie in there, right? :)
Thanks for offering a chance at winning the book! I'd love to add it to my bookshelf, and I already know who'd be blessed with the second copy.

Stefanie said...

Pumpkin pie or pecan pie. They are traditional but are a most have.

Natalie said...

no thanksgiving is complete without pumpkin pie... i know it's so basic but its so delicious and my favorite kind of pie!

Sue said...

Apple crisp with whipped coconut milk topping.

Anonymous said...

Apple pie all the way. Or an apple crumble cheesecake.

Tomdan said...

Berry crumble =]

Emily said...

Apple pie with home-made crust, filling, and lattice top. A slice topped with some coconut milk ice cream is perfection!

radioactivegan said...

There is a really great dish in the November VegNews magazine from about 2 years ago. It was some sort of thing in a crust ... I'm not at home to find the title, but it's delicious. I've made it every year since I got the recipe.

Sarah Goblot said...

pumpkin cheezecake!

Jan Scholl said...

I am not a big dessert eater but something I made with matzo crackers and chocolate a while back was said to be dessert crack by my daughter!

mama said...

Banana bread with dark chocolate chunks and cashew cream. Yum!

Marla said...

My personal fave for Thanksgiving is apple pie, but I will also cave a make pumpkin pie brownies for the pumpkin lovers in my family. (I am not one!)

Claryn said...

Pecan pie, though pumpkin trifle (pumpkin pudding, whipped cream, & ginger snaps) comes in a close second!

Hannah said...

Hmm, well, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, but can I make my ideal dessert up? A pecan ice with maple syrup in the filling and salted pecans on top :)

Anonymous said...

Thanksgiving is my excuse to make one of my faves, pumpkin pie...mmmm, pumpkin pie with the perfect flaky crust! And when I want something a little different...chocolate pumpkin pie, with same perfect flaky crust. Mmmm.

KittyPaws said...

Amazing apple dumplings that my mother makes. It is an old french recipe that encases cut apples in an amazing dough then sticky sauce is poured on top. She veganized it years ago for me!

Jesse D. said...

Derby Pie - essentially a sinful pecan pie with loads of chocolate chunks.

HeyitsBeth said...

I'd have to go with Tal Ronnen's recipe for Oven Roasted Banana Cheesecake with Spiced Pecan Crust and Maple Rum Sauce that got posted over on Vegansaurus. I mean, have you SEEN that thing?!? It's insane!

Big Momma said...

Cranberry sauce -- for real!! I know its not traditionally a dessert, but it's dessert for me!

Aurelie Laroye said...

Pumpkin gnocchi!

peggy said...

my favorite thanksgiving dessert is peanut butter-choc creme pie (made with silken tofu of course!)

i don't often turn away any vegan dessert though!

SweetKaroline said...

my favorite dessert for thanksgiving is definitely pecan pie!

yumyum

sara said...

i gotta have my pumpkin pie on thanksgiving!

heather said...

can my favorite dessert be more mashed potatoes? If not, then my next thanksgiving love is pumpkin cupcakes!

Seglare said...

Cranberry-toffee cake is probably my favorite; but I also love everything with apples in it. :)

anne-laure said...

Salted butter caramel tart... which I usally eat the day after, since I'm always too full to eat sweets after the thanksgiving meal!

Emmer Mae said...

Pumpkin bread pudding! Yum :)

Anonymous said...

I don't have a favorite Thanksgiving dessert, but my sister made a trifle one year that was awesome. Recreating a trifle vegan-style sounds like it could be a fun and worthwhile adventure!

nurseta03 said...

vegan pumpkin coffee cake with extra streusel and glaze :oP so good...

NatureGuided said...

We make a simple but amazing vegan chocolate cake with a chocolate glaze that is so, so good and will be taking to our vegan Thanksgiving potluck this year...

Heather said...

Pumpkin Chocolate Pie! Seriously awesome.

Anonymous said...

I call this a twist on the traditional - dark chocolate pecan pie! YUMMO!

susank said...

Pumpkin anything-- I usually make a pie with graham cracker crust. And gingerbread cupcakes from PPK, with creamcheeze frosting. Those are always a hit.

This is totally boring and unimaginative, but apple pie. Preferable with vanilla So Delicious.

Caeli said...

I don't do thanksgiving, but i'm gonna say chocolate cherry cheesecake, CHYEAH! yummy!

I like to make a pumpkin pie with a pecan pie topping...yum

Sweet Potato Pie

I love Bryanna's pumpkin pie, but this year I'm supplementing with the tiramisu from Urban Vegan and a big box of Bluestocking BonBons. We're having about 15 people over, and desserts go quickly!

VeriityKae said...

Raw vegan pumpkin pie tartletts!

Brandi said...

I've got to say my favorite thanksgiving desert is pumpkin pie, mmmmm. It's so original, but I love it.

Chelsea said...

I'm going to be oh-so-original here and say pumpkin cheezecake. Specifically FFV's pumpkin cheezecake. Apparently I'm not the only one. :)

I've been eyeing 500 Vegan Recipes forever!

Elizabeth said...

I like to keep it simple with good ol' pumpkin pie. I only wish I could remember which recipe I used last year that turned out phenomenal (as opposed to the one 2 years ago which was a giant FAIL).

Vegmers said...

I made a pear pie (along with the traditional pumpkin) this year. I posted my recipe here: http://amachinations.mooo.com/2010/11/08/vegan-mofo-mondays .

Good luck finding inspiration!

Aaron said...

raw pumpkin cheesecake is where it's at @_@
