Fatfree Vegan Kitchen, will you be my Valentine?

14 Feb

I hope everyone is having a nice Valentine’s Day, filled with hearts and flowers and all that junk.  I spent my Valentine’s Day unpacking and resting after a long drive in a very large truck.  I also went grocery shopping and observed a gaggle of men and children hovering over the sparse supply of bouquets left in the floral section.

I have no recipe to post but I will tell you that Susan from Fatfree Vegan Kitchen posted a cookie recipe for Valentine’s Day.  Banana-Maple Oatmeal Cookies, to be exact.  And you should make them, because I made them this evening and they are yummy.  Actually, I made Banana-Agave Oatmeal Cookies, but I’d like to try them with maple syrup sometime.

I usually make baked oatmeal (I will get around to posting this recipe) every week to take with me to work as snacks.  What a nice change!  Thanks, Susan!

Making more soup tomorrow, I will let you know how it comes out!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

17 Jul

Oh Vegan with a Vengeance, I love you so much.

I’ve only made baked things out of this cookbook so far because I’m a fatty that loves cakes and cookies and scones and muffins. Okay I used the Tempeh Reuben recipe as a guide.

Anyway, last night I baked up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies and I’ve already had about five of them. They’re pretty super. I’m bringing them to Ithaca with me today to eat on our journey to New Jersey. There are lots of car rides ahead of me today. Chocolate chip cookies make everything better, including cars. I will someday invent a car that runs on chocolate chip cookies. Mark my words.

Anyway, I’ve made vegan cookies before and the dough usually looks like any other cookie dough. But this dough just wasn’t wet and sticky enough. It was pretty crumbly. But I rolled the dough into balls instead of just plopping it on the cookie sheet.

I was a little worried when the first batch went in the oven, but five cookies in my tummy later, I’m almost convinced that they came out awesome.

I might need to eat a few more first.
