2nd Annual New Year's Brunch

Want to kick off the year in grand style?  Have a vegan brunch!!  After a night of partying (or just dreaming away the past year), the trick to recovery is to sleep late, lay back, relax, and enjoy grazing on fabulous vegan fare the next day.  Or all weekend.

This was the second New Year's Brunch for Well on Wheels and I learned from my past experience that it was going to be a potluck.  This chef needs a little break after the holidays, too!  So, I offered up three of my favorite brunchy items:  Southwestern Tofu Scramble with salsa and guacamole, Apple Walnut Pancakes with real maple syrup, and Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Cranberry Pecan Streusel.

Guests contributed some equally delectable treats to the buffet table:  Blueberry Scones, Banana Muffins, Die-and-Go-to-Heaven Tofu Quiche, Peach and Berry Cobbler, Fruit Salad, Cole Slaw, Italian Stew, Spiced Rice with Raisins, Salad, and fresh salsa.  The colors and flavors brightened the room on this cloudy winter day.

Thank you to all who joined us in celebrating the start of the new year (and new decade).  I think it's gonna be a good one!

Everything for your 2nd New Year's Brunch looked so delicious. I wish I could have been there. If you plan one for next year, I'll have to be sure to attend. Maybe you might want to host another one before then.

I'll do my best to make it an annual event. In the mean time, check my calendar at for upcoming dinners/events.

would you mind sharing the Tofu Quiche recipe?

ann, sorry, I've been sworn to secrecy on the quiche! actually, it isn't even mine - one of my guests at the brunch brought it, and she got the recipe from a restaurant in Ithaca.
