Anyone who hasn't made the veggies and dumplings, do it now. I've made it with and without broccoli, with corn instead of peas, zucchini instead of broccoli.... the dumplings are perfect.

The chocolate strawberry pie recipe ruled my life all summer. We would make a pie and then the three of us would devour it in one sitting. It would be so good we would crave more even if stuffed and totally sick of it.

Normally I share my cooking and deliver some to my parents or my colleagues... but nobody else got any of this pie. I almost didn't share it with my immediate family.

I keep reading about how excellent the Mac & Cheese recipe is, and I really want to make it for my family. However, my kids and husband are severely allergic to tree nuts...has anyone tried making the recipe without the cashews?

I think it would work to omit the cashews, and then substitute plain unsweetened soymilk for the water, to give it the extra creaminess. I would also make sure to add the Earth Balance too.

Let me know how it comes out. I would love to know!

Can you try sunflower seeds? I sometimes make raw cheesey recipes with them if I'm having a poor week. It's not exactly the same but still yummy.

Thank you for the push to make this! It's my lunches this week. Had it for the first time yesterday and am going to heat a portion up now... soo delicious. The peas in the thick stew are yummy. And it was very easy to make. And fun! I loved dropping the raw dough into the stew, putting on the lid, and coming back to see the puffed-up dumplings. Very cool.

Over the weekend I made the Pumpkin Spice pancakes, English Muffins, and the Smokey Potato Scramble. All delicious! I was particulary impressed with the English Muffins. They were so good!

I made the smokey scramble this weekend, too! I also made the smokey seitan and the bbq sauce with chipotle pepper, and served in on a long roll with the diner slaw. It was intense!

I've heard of people subbing in sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or hemp seeds for tree nuts in recipes.

OK, So we can't get Soy Curls in Australia but I am desperate to try them. I've seen this exact product (with a different brandname, but same type of packaging) and it looks exactly the same as the one we get here - http://www.qiannafoods.com/system/2006/ ... 0935.shtml . Not fully understanding what soy curls are, is this similar? I cooked them once in the recommended recipe on the back, and they were awful.

Those do look slightly similar, but also drier and...strange looking. I can't say if they would be the same, but they look similar at least. Maybe the recipe just didn't give enough flavor? I've loved them every time I've had them. Once they are reconstituted, drained, flavored, and crisped..they are great. Can you order them from anywhere?

Are soy curls just 100% organic soybean, like this one? That's kinda what got me started thinking. I definitely think I would do the reconstituting, draining, flavouring and crisping next time, as I usually do with most TVP.. I think in the recipe on the package, you cooked/reconstituted it directly in the sauce. So everything tasted like.. old soy/dry TVP. Yeesh. Will give it another try. Can't order from anywhere here, I don't believe, sadly. Thanks for your help, though!

I think so! "Ingredients: Soy Curls are made from delicately textured select, non GMO, whole soybeans." Good luck!

Are the recipes kind of healthy or who-cares-they're-awesome? I'm interested in buying it either way, but I do like healthy options.

I think there's a good mix of both healthy and not so much in this book which I really appreciate. Many of the recipes use much less oil than others I've seen which is great for me.

I made the chocolate ice cream last night and it was awesome. (I had to modify the recipe because my grocery store no longer carries coconut milk. I replaced both the soy milk and coconut milk in the recipe with the asceptically packed coconut milk for drinking and cereal.) Apparently, xantham gum is the secret to creamy vegan ice cream, because this came out much richer than anything I've made before despite having less fat.

I think you can buy Soy Curls directly from Butler Foods (which makes Soy Curls), or ask them where you can buy them in Australia. If there are any Adventist stores, they might carry them, or be able to get them in. Butler Foods is an Adventist company. Although TVP may work, the flavor is different.

Hope this helps!

Disgusting confession? I used Tofutti Sour Supreme after my blender finally kicked the bucket and I had an intense craving. I don't find it sour at all, personally, cashews were better but it still tasted good to me.
