( The-pantry-is-bare oatmeal chocolate chip coconut pecan sconish-cookie recipe...Collapse )
I love olive oil soap. Somehow it does wonders for my complexion. However, I don't have frequent access to stores that sell the Kiss My Face version, and I can't justify the price (since it usually melts on me anyway). I did find it handmade for a buck a bar at an Italian grocery back home, though come to think about it I don't know if it's especially vegan (I'll have to check with the shop next time, I guess. Old-school family owned shop = weird blank stares ahoy when I ask). Does anyone have recipes for simple olive oil soap? I'd prefer no glycerin in the recipe (do they even make veg glycerin soap?) as that kind just icks me out.
(I didn't even know you could buy fruit by the bushel in the midst of winter, but yes it's true!)
Anyhow, I've already made a pie and now I'm out of ideas.
I don't think my family can eat all of these raw before they go bad (Raw apples don't like me anyhow).
So, other than eating lots and lots and lots of pie, what could I do with these?
I'm thinking of maybe making applesauce! Anyone know any good simple tried-tested-true recipes?
(I have both a blender and food processor, if either of those are needed!)
Any ideas, tips, recipes etc greatly appreciated!
editing to say: WOW. that was a lot of exclamation points. Pardon those, I'm sleep deprived.
PS I don't really eat sandwiches.
EDIT: Thanks for the ideas, everyone! Right now, my tempeh is soaking in a sweet and tangy marinade. I think I will bread it tonight, serve it with roasted eggplant and top it with onions and mushrooms sauteed in balsamic vinegar.
The only things I would suggest to change, are to use soymilk instead of water, and to stir in the vinegar at the very end--not with all the other ingredients. This will result in an incredibly rich and fluffy cake! I've made it a few times and definitely like it better plain, without frosting. It's too good to cover it up! I ended up picking off the frosting and giving it to my boyfriend. :)

I'm having a devil of a time thinking of things that don't involve onions, garlic (presumably also things like chives and shallots) or soy.
Also, I'm hoping to go shopping sometime in the next couple hours, so the sooner the better :)
EDIT: I just got the word that onions and garlic are now ok, so that should be easy to work with. Thanks!
anyway here's the recipie:
3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/2 cups of orange juice
1 teaspoon of vanilla
combine flour, baking powder, and brown sugar. add oil, mix with a fork until small lumps form. combine orange juice and vanilla, and then add to dough. mix until moist, knead dough with hands and shape into rectangle. cover liberally with cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar ((you can also add pecans, or raisins, or whatever else you like in your rolls. put in as much as you want)). roll lengthwise and slice into 8-10 pieces. place on cookie sheet, and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. cook at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
1 cup of confectioner's sugar
1/8 cup of water
2 tablespoons of soy milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 cups of margarine
combine sugar, soymilk, vanilla, and half of the margarine. slowly add the water and remaining margarine, while mixing the frosting with a beater. you may have to add more sugar/butter/water depending on the sweetness and consistancy that you like.. i just kind of played around with it until it tasted good. put the frosting in the fridge for an hour or so for it to get firm. spread over hot cinnamon buns, let cool, and then add more! i've already had like four today, they're fabulous :)
^_^ I really do love how she tries.
erica_the_vegan 's journal. They were absolutely delicious. I can't stop eating them!!! Thanks for the recipe. Which cookbook were these from? I can't find that entry anymore..
This is the Spring Vegetable Risotto from The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen. It was really tasty, the first risotto I've made myself, and it's my boyfriend's new favorite meal.
