That is cool! but am I the only one who doesn't peel their ginger? I guess maybe I would if I were using slices but I'm usually just microplaning it.

A friend sent me one of these and I saved the label so I could remember what it was and track it down online. Which I never could, at the time, so thanks for posting that. They're so freaking good.

Maybe this wouldn't seem life changing for most, but for me, getting Isa Does It has made all the difference in the meals I prepare for my family. Even my husband, a completely unrepentant omnivore, loves the food. We are eating at home so much more. Talk about saving money. I am still open to buying other cookbooks, but if I had to choose one and only one, this would be it. Thanks, Isa!

I'm not sure that this life changing, but Wegmans now has a dark chocolate bar with cinnamon glazed pecans. It's really, really tasty, and it's nice to find a vegan chocolate bar that's only $1.99.

Yeah, I just picked one up (because when it's 7 degrees and I leave the house I'll get whatever I damn well feel like at Wegs), and it really is quite good and unique! I also saw the sea salt and toffee one but didn't bother to look at the ingredients this time to see if it was ok or not.

Don't think I've seen the sea salt one, but the toffee isn't vegan.

I just had Phoney Baloney coconut bacon for the first time, and it was pretty life changing. I love that it has pig facts on the bottom of the package! Oh, and it tastes great too. I am happy to have a replacement for those nasty but bacony accidentally vegan bacon bits.

i'm glad i'm not the only one! if it's really old or manky, i will cut off the bad parts, but if it's good, it gets sliced or grated up as it is.

It's like using white pepper. I don't think I'll ever care that much about presentation to mind a few bits of pepper or ginger skin peeking out of a dish.

We should start a club for all of us who don't peel our ginger. Except, I tried the spoon thing just for the heck of it, mostly cause it looked too good to be true and I wanted to prove that it didn't really work. But it does. And it's so cool and fun, that I might be converted to be a ginger peeling person. I'm sorry.

But white pepper tastes different from black pepper. There are lots of Chinese dishes that call for white pepper, where I think black pepper would taste out of place. And, if you ever make olive penguins, you will care enough about presentation to season your filling with white pepper. But most of the time, I think flecks of black pepper add to the presentation of a dish.

I never peel my ginger if I grate it frozen, I just rinse it and toss the whole lot into the freezer. Fresh, I peel 50% of the time depending on laziness! At some point I assume I'll stop peeling all together, but I admit spoon peeling is really cool!

Trader Joe's Coconut cooking spray. Not so great for sauteing, but excellent for beard maintenance.

They're not in stores yet, but Field Roast posted a picture on Instagram the other day of apple maple breakfast sausages: http://instagram.com/p/jfKdNZrBgk/

I think we can safely assume they'll be life changing :)

I'm so excited to try those! Everything Field Roast makes is great.

They are a bit of work, but worth it because they are so cute. And people got really excited about them when I made them for a party.

I am not sure whereabouts in Wegmans to look for this. Would it be in the bakiong section or where? The place is so huge, I can spend hours in there looking at and for stuff. I really want to try it.

Also, Wegmans carries Bakers semi-sweet chocolate pieces, which are vegan. They were great in the Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies from Isa Does It.

Arlyss - look in the aisle with the candy/gum and fancy chocolate. That aisle is usually near the bulk section in the stores I shop at.
