Does anyone have problems with the lemon coconut bundt cake? I've made it twice and both times it's burnt! First time I made it in a regular tin as I didn't have a bundt pan and the top was a little burnt.

This time I had the tin, so I set the oven for an hour but checked it after 40 minutes and it was overcooked and a bit burnt. When I turned it out the sides were burnt too! GAH.

Maybe our oven is just too fierce and next time I make it, I'll turn the oven down, but it's annoying, because I really like the cake - burny bits aside!

I've made this cake at least 4 times. I have an oven thermometer and made sure the temp was correct, and it still took MUCH less time than it lists on the recipe. I can always smell it and tell that it's close to being ready, so thankfully I've never burned it. It's my favorite cake and I watch it very carefully when it's baking. :)

Yeah I'm gonna definitely try again and turn the oven down and only cook it for half an hour then check it.

In fact, I think I might have a thermometer somewhere, I'll have to dig it out.

I've made that cake 2-3 times and don't remember having to change anything.

I've made it about 4 times and haven't changed anything except I baked it in a 9x13 baking pan cuz I didn't have a bunt, always turned out perfect. I just got a bunt pan and will be making this cake again soon because it is one of my faves!

I made the chocolate walnut cookies but using the white choc cherry varation, sooo yummy! I only made half a batch since it was just me eating them but now I wish I had made a whole batch, probably a good thing I didn't though :P

Just wanted to chime in on the lemon coconut bundt cake: 1) made it a bunch of times and never had any problems; 2) it's even better if you add blueberries!

I made the rustic white beans and mushrooms last night. I'm...not sure about them. The only feedback online seems to be how amazing they are, and to be fair my omni dad liked them more than I did, but I found them pretty bland.

I'm French, so the undeniable French-ness of these made me really want to love them. Alas.

I admit I didn't serve them with the tomato couscous as suggested, because that combination seemed odd to me, but maybe I should just trust Isa & Terry and make some to go with the leftovers. Unless someone else has other ideas for tricking out these beans?

That's one of my favorite things in the book, and I've never made the tomato couscous. Maybe you just don't like them.

I think that might be the case. I don't want to give up on them just yet though, because I don't think they taste bad. The flavours are nice, I just can't eat more than a few bites without feeling like something's missing.

I'm kind of determined to find a way to serve them that I enjoy. It's weirdly frustrating to read a recipe and think 'yes I'll love this!'...then you don't. =P

Over mashed potatoes?! You could probably serve a turd over mashed potatoes and it would be good.

I thought this recipe sounded good so I made it today. I loved the beans! I didn't have any leeks, so I left those out, and I didn't discard the onions/carrots/celery but diced them instead (discarding veggies makes me sad). Next time I'll double the mushrooms.

I had it with the tomato couscous (without capers) and I think it went well together. So if you don't want to go the mashed potatoes route, the tomato couscous is definitely a good idea. It's a very quick recipe!

Thanks for weighing in! I almost made the couscous last night, then I realised I didn't have all the ingredients and got lazy. In the meantime, my dad ate all the leftover beans. Must try the two together next time though.

Has anyone made the chewy oatmeal raisin cookies? There just seems to be way less liquid than I'd think you need (1/3 brown cup rice syrup, 1/3 c soymilk, 1/2c oil) to 2.333 c flour and 2 cups oatmeal. But I'm no baker.

Just wanted to confirm before I put in a ton of time and ingredients.

I've made them! I remember they tasted kinda "healthy" if that makes sense, but I don't remember them being too dry or anything.

Thanks! Its snowy and cold and I think oatmeal raisin cookies are perfect for days like today, but a bad cookie is a sad waste of ingredients and todder distraction time :)

I'm thinking of subbing applesauce for some of the oil, which may make it even more healthy and cakey...

Last night my husband & I made the kale and potato enchiladas. I had made them before (by myself) and thought they were too much work, but it was a reasonable effort for two people. Three changes: I doubled the sauce, added black beans to the filling, and topped it with the pine nut crema from Viva Vegan. One of the best meals I've ever made!

The chickpea cutlets with the lemony roasted potatoes and a side of roasted asparagus is perfect. I love the little blurbs in the beginning of the recipes with food pairing recommendations.
