Vegan MoFo 30: MoFo Ideas I Want to Try

I wrote a post for every day of the month, and my post for the 31st is already written! I saw a lot of great ideas over the course of Vegan MoFo, and I added too many cook books to my wish list. Even better, I added a bunch of lovely new blogs to my reading list.

I still want to make an effort to comment on blogs every day. The reading and writing are a lot more fun when they are part of a conversation. I think nearly every comment I made was to exclaim over beautiful things, or to try to win cookbooks, but there were a a lot of entries that made me want to try new things.

There's no way I could write a comprehensive list. In fact, I read only a few blogs regularly because I had to keep it under control somehow. It did occur to me, however, that I should have kept a running list of the things I really wanted to try, but wouldn't get around to during MoFo.

So here's a partial list. If you have suggestion, especially if it's from your own blog, please let me know! I've already thought about how to keep the MoFo spirit going, and this is one way that I can do it.

So here's my make soon list in no particular order. I'm going to print it, and stick it to the fridge so that I don't forget.

National Coming Out Day Treats

Whiskey and Ginger Truffles

Cheese Danish

Black Forest Shakes

Tofu Katsu Musubi

The Beast

Black and White Cookies

Sweet Potato w/ Apple Corn Salsa

A Vegan Meringue Topping/Hot Chocolate with Flax Meringue

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Treacle Tart (she uses this as her source)

Pennsylvania Shoo-Fly Pie

Dirt Cake

Cake Balls!

Cheezy Apple Roll-ups


  1. Good idea about keeping a running list. Next year! I bookmarked a ton of recipes, but of course, I perpetually have a couple of hundred in my browser that I haven't gotten to yet.

    I hope the MoFo spirit keeps up post-October -- it's totally tiring to keep up with and comment on a zillion blogs each week, but it's also incredible how many vegan bloggers are out there doing awesome things.

    1. Thanks! I figure if it's here, staring me in the face, and public, I'm much more likely to do. I should really print out all of the recipes today too so there are really no excuses.

      I really cut back on how many I read and comment on, which made it easier. Besides, I felt like I was sort of following some individuals' narratives, which was cool. But that's something I want to keep up with. Comments are so encouraging!

  2. I thought this was such a great post/idea even before I saw the black forest shake on here. Thank you Candy Beans, adn I am so glad you guys ae okay. Way to go for all the MoFo's posts! you brought it! great job.

    1. Thanks! I'll let you know what I think ;)

      Actually, I really want to make it when my mom visits soon, since she loves Black Forrest anything!

  3. I'm honored to have two on your list!

    A word of warning: If you make the Beast for Thanksgiving, you will never be allowed to make anything else for Thanksgiving ever. EVER AGAIN.

    1. That makes me so happy!

      To tell you the truth, I feared that about the Beast ... I'm excited!
