2006 (ok, so not really "last" year).
Thanksgiving Dinner - Tofurkey & gravy, stuffing, wheat roll, rutabega, potaotes, squash, pickled dilly beans, something unknown, cranberry sauce.
Sugar Cookies. From an old Veggie Life magazine. Really thin and crisp. The white stuff is coconut.
Polynesian Tofu - this was ok. which is surprising. there is another dish in that cookbook, "Neptune's Gift", which is AMAZING!
Chocolate Smlove Pie - A while back, I made Chocolate Smlove Pie from PPK. I think that this is also in Veganomicon. it's really really good. i made them as individual sized pies.
Vegan with a Vengeance:
So I'm not sure why the store bought ones have to suck so much ;-).
Chili w/ seitan - The best veg chili ever! I perfer it w/out seitan (just double the beans).
another cookbook that you should pack them wrapped up in lettuce. It keeps them moist but not super soggy.
Tempeh Sausage. These were ok, but sort of bland for my tastes. If I made them again, I'd spice them up.
Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World:
Boston vs. Brooklyn Crème Cupcakes - good. need to eat them quickly so they don't get dry. not a problem, though ;-).
Marble Cupcakes - They are so delicious. They have a nice tang to them. very dense and moist. worth my most unfavorite part of makng them - the swirling. i use vanilla frosting on them.
Cappuccino Crème Cupcakes - very good. very moist. i frosted them w/ chocolate frosting plust chocolate ganache.
Everyday Dish DVD
Internet Recipe Gambling...
Coffee Cake - very dry. not sure what I did wrong.
crispy green onion pancakes - not good. I guess I'll have to go a restaurant to get these. Or keep trying. Hmmmm... I'll go to the
resturant. I lost the link.
Pigeon Peas in Coconut milk - I couldn't find pigeon peas, so I used black eyed peas. and added a ton of spices. very good w/ my
fake injera recipe.
Cheesy Quackers - these were really really good. they were gone before they cooled. I guess I was warned about that...
B’couscous I love you! - good, but a tad bit bland. with spices added, yum.
Corn Chowder - easy soup that is good. trick is to blend everything but the corn. then add the corn in. skip the salt because the
boullion will have enough salt. Though I agree that I too don't like an overpowering boullion taste.
Irish Soda Bread - this was a disaster. I've tried 2 recipes. one veganized, one not. I haven't given up yet...
Tempeh Burger - I was thumbing through the July/August VT issue and found a bunch of burger recipes that i wanted to try. The issue had 4 different burgers. one was a Tempeh burger that had beets in it for moistness. I don't know if it was because I got a dry beet, but it was only ok.
Nappa Cabbage Salad with Peanut Dressing - pretty good
Garlicky Spinach soup - pretty good
Chewy Granola Bars - I also found a recipe in a VT issue for Chewy Granola Bars. They are very sweet, but worth the sugar fest. I'm sure you could make them with less brown sugar than is called for. I added in dried pineapple, raisins and dates. Egg replacer = Ener'G.
I used some leftover Rose drummettes (soy analog) from the Teapot in WA to make a sandwich. I put in green onions, follow your heart mayo, celery, salt, pepper. Simple but good. yes, the plate is the top of a tupperware container. I go all out for fancy pix.
