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.

  1. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  3. 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...

  4. 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!

  5. Tofu Pumpkin pie with candied cranberries!

    ReplyDelete
  6. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  8. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  9. pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! yum!

    ReplyDelete
  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  13. 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.

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

  15. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  17. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  19. 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 :)

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  22. 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.`

    ReplyDelete
  23. 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. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  26. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  30. Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake - thanks for the giveaway!!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pomegranate or pumpkin cheesecake!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am so excited to be making pumpkin cheesecake!

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

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

    Sooo good!

    ReplyDelete
  37. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  38. 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!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  41. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  43. I adore the Pumpkin Crumb Cake with the Pecan Streusel.

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

    ReplyDelete
  45. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  46. 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!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Fudge! My grandmother made the best fudge...

    Chocolate is great but peanut butter is better.

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

    ReplyDelete
  49. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  51. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  52. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  53. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  55. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  56. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  57. This comment has been removed by the author.

  58. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  60. 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.

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

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

    nataliejso@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  63. Apple crisp with whipped coconut milk topping.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  66. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  67. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  69. 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!)

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

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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 :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  73. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  75. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  77. Pumpkin gnocchi!

    ReplyDelete
  78. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  79. my favorite dessert for thanksgiving is definitely pecan pie!

    yumyum

    ReplyDelete
  80. i gotta have my pumpkin pie on thanksgiving!

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  84. Pumpkin bread pudding! Yum :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  87. 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...

    ReplyDelete
  88. Pumpkin Chocolate Pie! Seriously awesome.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  91. I am a big fan of apple crisp...SO good!

    Courtney

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  95. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  97. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  98. 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).

    ReplyDelete
  99. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  100. raw pumpkin cheesecake is where it's at @_@
