Cauliflower Wings

Tonight, I made Vegan Richa's Baked Mango Sriracha Cauliflower Wings. They were pretty freakin' delicious! I thought about making them for the Superbowl Party I went to yesterday, but it was mostly guys and no vegans, so I didn't think they'd really like them that much. I think I made a good choice because everything they served yesterday had meat in it: buffalo chicken dip, grilled barbecue and buffalo wings, and burgers. I was very glad that I'd thought ahead and brought my own veggie-friendly snacks.

The wings did kind of stick to the cookie sheet after baking, but that might have just been because I used aluminum foil on the sheet to keep the clean-up easy. I would recommend some non-stick spray. Also, 1/4 cup of sriracha was a little bit too spicy for me, so I added more preserves and juice to balance it out. I put my wings on top of some millet and drizzled the glaze on top. Delicious dinner.

I would definitely make these again!

Also, hubby wasn't here for dinner, so that means plenty of leftovers to bring for lunch tomorrow!

Superbowl Spread

Today I'm going to a Superbowl Party! I'm not much of a football fan, but I'll use any excuse for a party. I enjoy watching the commercials sometimes, too. None of my friends are vegan, so I figured that I should probably bring some awesome snacks to share so I don't feel deprived. I'm bringing one sweet treat and another more substantial snack. (Also, I had some General Tso's Vegan Chicken for dinner instead of buffalo wings. Same thing, right?)

Here are the ingredients for my brownies:
I didn't actually use the brown sugar, and there was maple syrup involved.
My mini-cupcake tray to make brownie bites!
I used the recipe from Party Vegan. To adjust for the bites, instead of pan brownies, I only cooked them for about 15-18 minutes instead of 35 minutes.
Finished brownie bites!
They're tastier than they look from my silly camera phone picture!
I had some extra batter so I made another brownie for myself. 
My grandma made me that cupcake potholder. Isn't it cute?
Hummus platter with whole wheat and white pitas and three different kinds of bell peppers.

I hope you guys have/had a great Superbowl!
