Whew! Busy, busy

Posted Feb 17 2012 11:34am
I am also determined to share more original or adapted recipes for all you hungry vegans out there! I am working on two cookbooks at the moment, and you should expect to see an announcement about the first (including a recipe or two from it) very soon.

I had a wonderful Valentine's Day and I hope you did as well. Chris and I went to a restaurant called The Steeping Room, which serves specialty tea by the pot and has several vegan options for not only main courses but also desserts.  I tried their grilled vegetable sandwich. It had eggplant, peppers, butternut squash, and mushrooms with a very unique lentil walnut spread, all on vegan ciabatta. I haven't had anything like it! I would have taken pictures but the atmosphere was fancy for the occasion and dimly lit.

For dessert, I made a fascinating blondie with marshmallows and chocolate chips in the batter! I had to make "brown sugar" for the recipe. The molasses flavor was a bit overpowering but overall these goodies were DELICIOUS! I'll be making a few changes and posting the recipe as soon as I consider it perfect. Here's what the first batch looked like.
I also tried making Chris vegan chocolate and chocolate covered strawberries from scratch, but the chocolate never solidified after I melted it :-(

Finally, I'm getting excited about Austin's first ever Veg Fest coming up on March 31st! There will be vendors and speakers and live music. Cool! You can and should expect pictures, presuming that I get the day off from work.

That's all I have for now. Thanks for reading!
