    What a great story and tribute. As much as you thank Angela, I think she owes you a huge thanks with this review. I’ve noticed more and more how other bloggers are reviewing books and this one is glowing, you can buy this stuff.

  • Sarah | Well and Full07/09/2016 - 2:50 pm

    YES I’m not the only one!! I too have such a hard time owning up to my blogging career, and it’s because I also feel like it’s not a “real” job (read: instagramming food pics all day). And especially with my parents/grandparents generations, they don’t understand blogging as a job. But it takes so much work to do what we do, and we should be proud of it! I know it’s a journey to this feeling, though, and I accept that. But it infinitely reassures me that you’ve had these feelings too! Especially since you have one of the most beautiful food blogs out there :)ReplyCancel

  • sarah07/09/2016 - 5:33 pm

    It’s Angela brownies on page 199, that had me sold on the book.I bought it yesterday, just for that recipe and the beautiful photos. I just couldn’t take my eyes of the book.

    Angela was also one of the first favorite plant-based bloggers I started reading years ago, then Sarah Britton, and then you Laura. Your blog I seem to come to your space the most often because 90% of the time, when I’m in a food rut, I something I love here and I just happen to have everything in my pantry (this is really rare). I don’t find this on any other blog. So thank you for all your hard work and yummy content, and I can’t wait for your book to come outReplyCancel

    Laura, I can’t thank you enough for your kind words. They truly blew me away! I honestly had no idea that my blog was one of the first you started to read. It’s so funny to me that you had that full circle moment because I totally felt the same way when I was asked to do the same for your book!

cacao hazelnut latte with herbal coffee - The First Messpin it!
So I’m here, not with an alcoholic libation to help you celebrate the long weekend, but with something a bit cozier to keep you going once it’s over. Preparation in life is key, especially post-holiday weekend life. I’ve been turning to some sort of herbal coffee concoction around 3 or so pretty much every day–sometimes just simple with a splash of non-dairy milk/creamer and sometimes blended up into something a bit more elaborate like this. It gets me through that hangry slump that sometimes has me contemplating a trip to the convenience store for a salty snack. This is the time of year that I start craving new routines and an overall fresh glance at my day-to-day. This little sip tends to lead to a definitive pause. I enjoy this one slowly, and I find that I’m much less likely to go for a late night snack when I take the time to enjoy it. Weird? I don’t know. It works for me in a big way. View full post »

For what it’s worth, all of these links were great :). In terms of your book tour (!!!), I already said this to you via Instagram but you should absolutely come to the Bay Area.

    I love fall/winter… which is weird for everyone around me as I live in Portugal with mostly good weather. I just embrace the cold with all my being, the sweaters, the boots, the scarfs, tha blankets…aah, so cozy! Honestly, iss there something better than to watch movies or read a book in the sofa with a hot beverage and cozy warm clothes and a blanket?

    Laura, I love your tips on making successful dishes for a potluck. I too find that, even if I’m dealing with picky eaters, if I make a killer & beautiful veggie dish, it will often be the first bowl licked clean. I’ve been loving the book as well and hoping to make something from it next weekend. And you are really good at photographing brown foods, these look SO appetizing :)ReplyCancel

    This sounds really good. Is it possible to make this in a crock pot as opposed to baking them in an oven? Just curious….ReplyCancel

    • Laura18/08/2016 - 8:25 am

      I think it would definitely work! Once you have the beans at the first boiled stage, transfer all of the liquid and beans to the crockpot. Throw the miso, molasses etc in as well, and then I would put it to the “high” setting. Then just keep checking on it/stirring it up every 30 minutes or so.

    • Laura18/08/2016 - 11:24 am

      Hey Lee! My stove is just a basic electric one with a smooth cooktop. Induction ranges are amazing though–you can boil a pot of water with those things so fast! I’ve used them at some cooking classes and demos and stuff and they really do perform with the speed of gas. I think the only drawback is that you have to ensure that all of your pots/pans/skillets are compatible.

  • Kristin18/08/2016 - 2:28 pm

    These look amazing so much so that I don’t think I can wait overnight to soak them. Any recommendations for cooking the beans first in a pressure cooker? Should I under cook them? Should I still put in the recommended amount of broth/water to the pot with the sauce?

    Thanks for the help!ReplyCancel

    • Laura18/08/2016 - 3:17 pm

  • Lynn long18/08/2016 - 5:32 pm

    Perhaps the miso in your recipe is only for taste, but miso has so much more to offer. By adding it at the end of the cooking time, you’ll also get the probiotic benefits of the miso. Long cooking, especially at high temperatures, will kill all the beneficial stuff miso has. In macrobiotic cooking we always add miso at the end and simmer for only a few minutes before serving.ReplyCancel

  • Daria19/08/2016 - 2:11 am

    I am living and working in UK and we are serving everyday baked beans with brakfast but… there is nothing better than homemade baked beans – I love them so much, this is way I don’t like to buy the ready ones. I really need to try your recipe! With miso it has to be very intresting flavour :)

    Hi Laura,
    This recipe looks gorgeous and so delicious, as always! Do you think – from a time saving point of view – it’s possible to make this with canned beans? Just stir in the sauce with the canned beans, and simmer them in the oven? I’m curious to hear your thoughts!ReplyCancel

    • Laura23/08/2016 - 11:42 am

      Hey Katja,
      I think that would be do-able. In this recipe, when the beans go into the oven, they definitely aren’t cooked all the way through. With that in mind, I might reduce all liquid components in this recipe by about a third. And when they go in the oven, I’d stir in about 1-2 cups of vegetable stock. Be mindful that if you use canned/cooked beans, after baking in the oven, they’re going to be reeeeaaallly soft (but probably still really tasty). Hope some of this is helpful!

  • Allyson21/08/2016 - 1:14 pm

    These baked beans sound excellent (beans+miso=yes), but I’m also salivating at the thought of your corn salad. Potluck food is tricky because there’s so many diets out there, and so many picky eaters, but sometimes magic strikes and you find just the right thing.ReplyCancel

    • Laura23/08/2016 - 11:44 am

      The first boil was roughly 20 minutes for me. It will really depend on the freshness of your dried beans though. The blowing trick is really helpful to assess the doneness!

    I so appreciate your philosophy of how you approach bringing food to potlucks- familiar with a bit of flair, and getting people to love eating vegetables. You have the gift to make everything look gorgeous, so I’m sure your dishes are always such a hit! Baked beans are such comfort food- so intrigued by this version with the miso, tamari, and ginger. Sounds and looks SO good.ReplyCancel

Peach Crumble Shake with Chia - The First Mess (vegan)pin it!
Once August is here, I make versions of this peach crumble shake pretty much every day. Sometimes I’ll use a handful of berries in the mix, some greens, or I’ll nix the protein powder or something, but the basic formula is there.

Sometimes you’re just not in the mood for the taste of banana, ya know?  View full post »

    I keep getting reminders that I need to up my breakfast game, like this one. This looks beautiful- and I’ve never thought of adding oats to my smoothies.ReplyCancel

    I go to Starbucks maybe every few weeks but I too was thrilled once they added Coconut milk. I drink only espresso drinks and an iced latte with coconut milk is quite tasty and I consider it a dessert drink because they use original and not unsweetened milk. :)ReplyCancel

    This looks awesome! Totally making it for breakfast tomorrow. Also, the coconut milk at starbucks IS totally weird! Or I guess just sweetened. Love the links as always <3ReplyCancel

    I never thought of adding lemon juice to a smoothie before, but I love the idea. I have to try this with a dash of cardamon!ReplyCancel

    I took the liberty of roasting the peaches before freezing to make this shake. TOTALLY MOUTHWATERING.ReplyCancel
