Oh LisaPunk, I'm so sad you don't like Chloe's Mac for some reason, it's one of my fave recipes! I only cook it off the website though, and heard the cookbook version is baked? I found, the other day, that baking my no-tuna casserole made the sauce lose some major flavour. I have no idea why this is, as the sauce was o tasty in the pot. I wonder if just doing it stove top would help you?

Also, when I make it, I use a pile of minced garlic instead of garlic powder in the sauce. Wonder if that makes a difference.

Don't get me wrong, it is a mild flavour over all. I just want everyone to like it as much as I do lol.

I'm not a fan of her Mac either, instead I prefer this one: http://vegnews.com/articles/page.do?catId=10&pageId=40

I'm with you Moon....I like it just fine, but my kids LOVE it. I think it's the mild flavor (and I use the one out of the cookbook).

Made the Chipotle Chop salad for Thanksgiving. It was great - even the omnis loved it (although they did ask what the quinoa was...). I thought it was a bit of a pain to saute the garlic, beans, and spices together (and I put in about 1 tsp chili powder). I think that next time I'll just add drained beans to the salad, and add the chili powder and garlic to the dressing.

I just made the country meatloaf again but since I only had one packag of tempeh, I subbed a cup of reconstituted tvp for one of the packs of tempeh. It turned out quite well!

It was also the first time I've ever made the golden gravy (the last time I wanted to make it I discovered bugs in my flour) and I'm pretty sure this is now my favorite gravy! (Or at least tied with the miso gravy from reFresh.)

The beauty is, I've now got several days worth of leftovers for lunch.

Good to know about the cake. I've had my eye on that cake for over a year now but have yet to make it. Will try it soon.

the only advice i have is definitely follow the advice about adding the espresso mix to the frosting SLOWLY and tasting it to see your preferred level of espresso flavor.

I made the Mocha Almond Fudge cake last May for my husband's b-day. it was my first foray into vegan baking. and my first thought that "I can really do this vegan thing"...baking is my hobby and I was afraid that I would have to give it up. since then I have realized that pretty much anything can be vegan-ized.

I'm with you Moon....I like it just fine, but my kids LOVE it. I think it's the mild flavor (and I use the one out of the cookbook).


Needing some serious comfort food tonight, so whipped up Chloe's mac n cheese from the cookbook, although I have another go-to mac that I really enjoy - because I remembered the discussion here.

My subs were:
3 tbsp ketchup in place of 2 tbsp tomato paste/agave (no tom paste on hand)
white rice flour instead of AP
corn elbow macaroni (GF)

*book says to bake, but I didn't take that step, nor did I include the broccoli suggested in the online version

Very mild, indeed! Mildest vegan mac n cheese I've had (since many contain miso for the depth/cheesiness), and I can see why kids would like it (will test on teenager when he returns home from beach bonfire). It is reminiscent of the ol' Kraft version, IMO - and the sauce is thick and smooth from the roux, really nice mouth feel.

(ETA: the color is nice! could have been the 3rd tbsp of ketchup, but a pleasing hue: not too orange-y nor too pale)

I will be rotating this with my other old stand-by, depending on my mood. It's a nice pantry-friendly version with few ingredients.

Thanx for the commentary, friends! Always fun to make a new-to-me recipe that is someone else's tried and true. ☺

I made my first Chloe's Kitchen recipes today.
Cheesy Broccoli Soup (Not in the bread bowl.)
The Indian Trio: Saag Aloo, Chana Masala & Veggie Biryani. (Not the garlic naan tho!)
Garlicky Greens. Subbed cavolo nero for the kale.
I found the recipes easy to follow & fairly quick & simple.
I'm looking forward to exploring this book some more.

i got the baking book from the library.

i want to make the brownies - do you think they can stay in the fridge for a few days as we eat through the pan? not much of a sweet tooth lately...i don't want to make them and they go to crepe the next day.

for brownies it usually takes us at least a few days to eat them. i always just leave them on the counter with saran wrap over the dish. i dont take them out of the baking pan i just put the saran wrap right over that.

My technique for storing baked goods is to put a few in the fridge & most in the freezer. Assuming you don't mind heating them up to eat. I like em warm.

Made the Mushroom Stroganoff pasta dish today and threw some asparagus and tofu into the mix. Oh, and some toasted walnuts. It was very good! I was pleasantly surprised, because it just seemed like it would be blah or something. It's been a while since I pulled Chloe's Kitchen off the shelf, but it's taking up residence on my counter now while I revisit it!
