July 3rd, 2004


My housemate went peach-picking and now we have a million peaches. I was planning on making a Red, White, and Blueberry cobbler for the Fourth of July (from "Vegan Planet," it's strawberry and blueberry), but we have so many that I probably want to put some peaches in it, too.

Now, question: what can you do with peaches, other than eat them straight or make them into cobblers?

Every 4th of July, My Mom and I make a layered dessert. Put cubes of angel food cake in the bottom of a large glass bowl. Then whipped cream. Then strawberries and blueberries. Repeat.
So I got the strawberries, blueberries and hip whip, but I'm wondering about this cake.
The only vegan angelfood cake recipe I can find is: this one and I don't understand how that would work w/o any baking soda/powder or egg replacer.
So does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe a plain vanilla cake with lots of egg replacer? heh. thanks!

iron rich foods

I was feeling abnormally tired and dizzy, was having trouble sleeping, wasn't hungry etc so I went to the doctor and he thinks I'm iron-deficient anemic. Apparently it's quite common in young women, especially vegetarians. He gave me 300mg iron pills to take daily and suggested I eat more iron rich foods so I was wondering if anyone here has any good and easy recipes involving iron. I'm going away for a couple of weeks on Tuesday so I need meals which can be easily prepared and stored for a couple of days. Easy to pack lunches would be great too. Thanks a lot,

This week a new type of veggie burgers appeared in the supermarket (and on sale, but it wasnt marked). They're called Vegelicious. They have 2 veggie based patties: VEgetable and Santa Fe Style, as well as Hamburger style which is mainly soy based. All vegan. They have meatballs too, but theyre not vegan friendly. ITs a private company and theyre really good- I love the SantaFe. I didnt know if anyone else has ever seen these, or just giving a heads up when you end up at a non-health food based store to check them out.
