The lemon bars do not disappoint! Thank you everyone for pointing me in the right direction!

dooooo iiiit! i still think of V'con as having involved recipes that you really need to dedicate time and effort to, but i was amazed how easy this was. i served it with steamed broccoli, which made a great, simple weeknight dinner. totally making it again.

A question about the Mac Daddy!

I want to make it for tonight but when I get home from work it will be pretty late. Do you suppose I can do everything up to the baking point and leave the casserole in the fridge the 5 hours I'm gone, give it a stir and pop it in the oven when I get home? Does anyone see an potential issues with that, knowing the recipe?

I have two delightful Meyer lemons in my fridge to use up. I think I'll make lemon bars with them! It's been a while...

I broke my V'con virginity last night and made the curry baked tofu. I had it for lunch today with bread and mayo. So yum.

For the lemon bars, is it ok to use agar powder instead of flakes? What's the conversion?

I used one teaspoon of agar powder to replace each tablespoon of agar flakes in the recipe. Other than that I followed it exactly even though the powder probably doesn't need as much boiling time as the flakes. I figured that way the same amount of steam would boil off. They came out lovely.

Awesome, I have really missed lemon bars so I can't wait to try them this weekend.

I scream, you scream - the Vcon Vanilla Ice Cream is FAB! And a PERFECT accompaniment for the warm Berry Crisp (which became mixed berries and frozen peaches based on freezer contents).

I'd never been a big fruit pie/fruit dessert person, but there is something centering about a bit of warm fruit crisp/crumble/pie with cold, melty vanilla ice cream... and this sure fit the bill. So easy, so good.

After the debacle that was my attempt at vanilla ice cream from Vegan Diner (frozen solid and icy, not quite the right mouth feel), I am beyond delighted at the ease and texture of the Vcon Vanilla. My teenager actually liked it more soft-serve, out of the ice cream freezer - but my preference is the scoopable form after freezing overnight. Firm, but scoopable, no ice crystals to be seen.

Can't wait to try the variations - and I'm itching to make some cookie sandwiches with all the great ideas listed in the book! Far more cost-effective than Coconut Bliss ($$$$$).

The pound cake recipe from V'con is outstanding! It was devoured pretty quickly at our monthly vegan potluck.

My dad was just telling me how he was offered pound cake at a gathering recently, but they were handing out the recipe and he looked at it. After he saw what a nightmare the standard ingredients are, he couldn't eat it. So this would be such a nice surprise for him I think.

I think it's great that your dad reads recipes and acts accordingly!

I'm bringing it to a family get together tomorrow. I made it last weekend and froze it, so I'll defrost it tonight and we'll have it tomorrow with strawberries and whipped cream (MimiCreme, I think. I don't have time to make Isa's Rad Whip.)

He likes to report to me about his wise decisions. Post-heart attack. He is so close to going vegan!

Enjoy the cake!

I made the Backyard BBQ sauce last night for the first time (I think that is what it is called?) for BBQ soy curls later this week.

O. M. G. that stuff is so good! I did add some barrel aged Jack Daniels to mine, and blended it after it cooled. It was super good. My partner loves the JD jarred stuff, but this is BETTER. I kept putting my fingers in the pot last night when it was cooling.

It made a ton, I hope it saves in the fridge ok. I think I want to use it on burgers this weekend maybe. Or make beans with it, for a super fast cheater type baked bean recipe.

It saves for a little while, maybe a week. The baked tofu recipe that uses it is really really easy and good too!

It freezes well! I use a few small jars so I don't have to thaw it all at once.

It is indeed. and you know what makes it even more fantastic? Frying up a slice the next day and slathering EB on it.
It's like frying the tops of corn muffins, which is awesome, right?? Only this is better. It's like Heaven.

{creeping over, tail between legs, to re-post this in Vcon thread, instead of the 2-year-old VCon challenge thread - sorry for dup!}

I used a little less chile powder, used orange and yellow bell peppers instead of green, and also a few drops of liquid smoke. I really enjoyed it last nite, atop homemade artisan bread, sprinkled with nooch.

BUT today, during a nasty heat wave: Cold Snobby Joe leftovers. Mixed with cold brown rice. In a bowl. Sprinkled with nooch. For breakfast. And again for dinner. <YUM. FABULOUS. And a blessing when turning on the stove is the LAST thing I want to do...>
