Vegan Cookies from a Mix

I just wanna say hi to everyone here. This is a fantastic place to get inspiration and the warm fuzzies. I've been kind of obsessed with baking and I used to be terrible at it. It snowed yesterday and was the perfect day for making the house smell nice. So, I made these Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies Fancied Up


Ciao!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies Fancied Up
1/4 tub Earth Balance, softened (1 stick equivalent)
1 T soy flour mixed well with 3 T water
1 pkg (20 oz.) Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Stir margarine until fluffy. Add in soy/water mixture and blend well. Add remaining ingredients and mix till nice dough is formed. Roll into balls and bake as package directs (375 for like 14 mins.)

juicer

i thought you might have some tips....
my juicer doesn't make enough juice,it turns most of the fruit to pulp. i feel like i'm wasting fruit by using the juicer : / maybe i'm doing something wrong?
i thought someone here might know how to get more juice out of a juicer? if that's possible. thanks

Dulse versus kelp granules in faux fish recipes

I purchased dulse and kelp granules for making a faux fish recipe, and I realized once I came home that the recipe only calls for kelp granules. However, I have seen comments suggesting that dulse also has a "fishy" taste. For those of you who have used dulse in recipes, would adding it to a faux fish recipe be overkill? What other types of recipes can I use dulse?

your best sandwich!

so what is your favorite sandwich to make that's not exactly keeping healthy or light in mind? it's just one of those days needin' some comfort food and a sandwich is what i have in mind.

also, please try to keep the tofu/tempeh/seitan/other 'speciality' vegan foods (i.e. vegan cheeses) at a minimum as i'm trying to keep the price down.
