continuing my theme of making you jealous of all the great christmas presents i received this year, i just wanted to rave about vegan yum yum, which was a gift from david and ellen. i've been a reader of lauren ulm's gorgeous blog for a long time, and i even have her application on MYphone. her food photos are gorgeous; i paged through this book on christmas day and wanted to make everything. so that's what i'm gonna do, starting (so far) with:
:: broccoli almond sweet-and-sour tofu ::
:: snickerdoodles* ::
:: apple cranberry salad with country-fried seitan ::
:: apple cider brussels sprouts ::
:: baked mac and cheeze ::
everything was delicious with the sole exception of the dressing on the salad (it's made with almonds and is supposed to be a creamy dressing, but i couldn't get the texture right, and the flavor was a little dull). i can't wait to make the other ninety-five recipes in this book!
*the official cookie of the checkout girl. mine weren't quite as perfect as hers, but almost.
