Super smoothie

I just got a lovely new super blender (600 watts) for the sole purpose of making some power smoothies. I thought I'd share one I just made. It's good for a mid afternoon snack or breakfast. Feel free to add whatever, 3/4 of a cup of cooked instant oatmeal provides a good amount of fiber. Don't worry, you can barely taste it (plus oatmeal is good anyway!)

Essentials?

Hey, I'm Molly and I'm a vegetarian but I often cook vegan recipes. I'm moving tomorrow and I was wondering if someone could provide me with a list of essentials for vegan cooking. It'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks. :)

coconut flan type pupu?

Okay, so a long time ago I made a type of pupu (Hawaiian appetizer) using coconut milk, sugar, and probably one other ingredient. I remember it be insanely easy, as it mostly required bringing the milk to a boil, adding the other ingredients, then cooling it in the fridge and cutting into squares.

But I can't find the recipe anywhere (and why is there no ethnic Hawaiian food in the archives?! you people need to get to work on the island meals! ;)...so I'm wondering if anyone here knows what I'm talking about... a google search has proved fruitless at this point.

Thanks :)
