Today I'm making the chocolate truffle mint pie. Thin Mints were one of my favorite things in the world, pre-vegan, so I think it will be right up my alley.

Did you love it?! I love that pie so much!

I made the mac & cheese for dinner tonight and added a half cup of Daiya pepperjack shreds. Holy yum! I think this might become my go to mac & cheese recipe. I cut the smoked paprika down to 1/2 teaspoon because I only like it in small amounts.

I like the creaminess that cashews add to the sauce, and the recipe has just the right amount of nooch. <3

I made the crispy chickpea onion rings the other night, so good! I loved that the recipe was a bit different from all the standard ones you see everywhere else, and the seasoning was perfect. This book hasn't let me down yet!

I made the veggies with dumplings for dinner tonight (with some variations) and it was really good! Plus it made a lot, so I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

The Diner Granola is the BEST granola I've ever had and we go through a lot of granola/cereal in our house. This morning I added the raw millet as Julie suggested on her website - made the recipe even better.

Using Mihl's speculoos/Spekulatius spice blend instead of the cinnamon makes your taste buds happy happy.

The chili was so good! I like it on the soupier side, and it was a really quick meal, too.

I almost got the ingredients to make this the other day but then it got too hot out all of a sudden. I will jump on it on the next rainy day we have here. :)

I made the Great Smoky Mountain Cheeze today. Wow. Blew my mind. I'm going to be eating grilled cheeses all week long.

For anyone that doesn't have Vegan Diner, I put up the recipe and video for the Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, plus a gluten-free variation. It's on www.everydaydish.tv

oh yeah those cookies are amazing, 'cause they're tasty as hell and very basic, and about 2/3rd the oil of other cookies I make! so for us they are a more frequent treat, though I do find I have to cut the choc chips down a bit because I end up with too many left in the bowl that just won't mix into the batter.

one issue I'm having with the book is that some recipes call for instant yeast and I don't really see that in stores much...sometimes I sub active dry yeast but in those cases, alter the recipe a bit in order to mix the yeast with the liquid. Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong there, i.e. does it really matter to the recipe if I don't use instant yeast?

Thanks! Rapid Rise Yeast is supposed to be almost the same as Instant Yeast. Here in Portland I get instant yeast super cheap at Cash & Carry, which is a restaurant supply type store, open to the public. I think it's about $3 for 1pound of Saf Instant Yeast. The reason I like using instant is that it always gives the dough a great rise, is pretty much fool-proof and you don't have to activate it, just mix it into the dry ingredients.

You should be able to sub regular active dry yeast for the instant. I believe the ratio is 1 tbsp active dry yeast equals 2 tsp instant yeast. You will have to dissolve and activate the yeast in warm water with a pinch of sugar though.

Hope that helps.

Julie

I don't know how I ever got through essay-writing season at uni before I had smoky mountain cheese! All I have time to make at the moment is grilled cheeses, but I kind of love having the excuse to eat so many.

I've barely been cooking lately, been eating pretty terribly! I pretty much live at the library. Today I tried really hard not to eat two packets of Oreos.

In other news, I ordered this book!

Haha, I'm 'studying' in bed and there's an empty Oreo packet right next to me. The shame!

For those of you who have made the loaf, what kind of crumbles did you use? I have some Boca ones that really need to get used but the one time I tried them they were so gross I'm terrified of ruining a whole recipe with them.



I used Gimme Lean ground beef style, sauteed for a few minutes and broken up into small pieces, because I didn't have frozen crumbles around. It was great with these.

Made the Very Vanilla Ice Cream. The only thing I changed was the ratio of coconut to soy milk - I used more coconut milk. Came out very tasty!

Did you include the xanthan gum? I want to try her ice creams but I'm not sure where to find that stuff.

I really want to try this. I just need to remember to get the agar. Do you think that it's kind of low in calories/fat? It looks so good but I am not sure that now is the time. (just started calorie-counting)

I'm counting calories right now too so I figured it out when I made it! According to the site I use to track, it's about 100 calories for 1/8th of the recipe (which is plenty for one sandwich).

Xantham gum just makes ice cream creamier, as far as I'm aware. You can leave it out without any major damage. It's getting easier to find, I used to only be able to get it at the health food store but I saw some in the health food aisle of the supermarket the other day, too.

The garlic mayo is awesome. I licked it from the spoon, which is gross if you do it with store-bought mayo, but it worked terrific with this stuff.

I've been feeling pretty crappy today so I made the Veggies and Dumplings with two small chickn style cutlets tossed in and it's exactly what I needed. Too bad my husband is anti-dumpling.

Yeah I've noticed in the grocery stores they've started putting it with the gluten free stuff because people tend to use it in gf cooking.
