sesame baked tofu.

this is the first time i've cooked with tofu!
very simple recipe. very easy. and tasty. :)

i just ate the tofu over rice and added some toasted almonds.
the next day when i had it for leftovers i poured coconut milk on top.
yum. :)
next time i make this sesame baked tofu, i want to add some veggies to it or something.
or a sauce (like the coconut milk).

nachos/cinnamon rolls/falafel/milkshakes/junk food

I haven't been vegan for very long, so besides a lot of baking that I had been doing for a long while, and dinners, I haven't gotten a chance to experience the other side of vegan cooking-- all the junk food.

An omnivore friend is staying over tonight and I want it to be a total junk food party, so we're going to make nachos using THIS RECIPE, cinnamon rolls using THIS RECIPE, and falafels using that Fantastic Foods mix.
I don't think I'll have any trouble with those, but I also wanted to make milkshakes which is something I've never done, even as a non-vegan. Vanilla soy ice cream+Oreos=milkshake/McFlurry type thing in a blender? Maybe?
I picked up this huge bottle of Hazelnut syrup flavoring, too, and don't really know what to do with it. The bottle says to make italian sodas or coffee drinks, but I'm thinking plain hazelnut would be boring. Would it be a bad idea to do soda water+flavoring+maybe a chocolate soy ice cream as a kind of float?

So yeah, anything else you guys have fun eating and making that has absolutely no nutritional value (or at least doesn't taste like it?)
Thank you a lot in advance!

Mango-Orange Pie

That Lemon Meringue Pie was SO good I had to try something else.

Alterations:
1.5 cups liquid = 1 pureed mango + enough apple juice to equal 1.5 cups. (perhaps orange juice would have been better)
sugar = 3/4 cup
Orange juice and orange zest

This is a great summer pie and so easy to make!
