So, here's the deal:
My family is having a huge Christmas get together-like most families- and everybody is bringing something. I volunteered for candies, as did my grandma. I'm the only vegan-or vegetarian for that matter- so I'll be bringing vegan candies. But I have no idea what kind of candy to bring so here's my question:
What's your favorite vegan candy and where can I find the recipes? :]
I was making the White Bean and Roasted Garlic soup in VwaV recently and saw how Isa referred to roasted garlic as "restaurant flavor." This got me to thinking, what cheap/easy ingredients do you guys add to your food for instant restaurant/sophisticated/really good flavor?
Roasted sesame seeds
Roasted garlic =]
Hello. I'm hosting a birthday party for my mom. It's going to be at 2:00 in the afternoon so I'm not going to make anything major or anything that would lend itself to a "sit down" dinner. Essentially, I need to make finger foods. I'm doing a European/tea party sort of theme. I'll make currant scones, mini quiches, tea sandwiches, chocolate strawberries, mini tarts, a cookie plate and a big chocolate cake with coconut-pecan filling and tons of chocolate frosting. I have the sweets covered, but I really need some good ideas for savory things. What do you think would be good on a tea sandwich? I think non-vegans (everyone other than me) would be grossed out by vegan cream cheese, so I'm not even going to try it.
I haven't found any product by googling, so I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to make maple nut goodies without gelatin? (As far as I know, gelatin is the only problematic ingredient for veg*ns, but I may not be remembering correctly.) I'd love you forever for any help you can offer.
If i am trying to make the peppermint bark- what kind of chocolate should i use (i am doing regular dark) so would like a bag of melted down chocolate chips work or would they be to soft to work with this recipe?
