Cookbook Addict / Last Day of Freedom


Image totally lifted from CompassionateCooks.com.

While we were at Mooshoes in NYC I picked up two pairs of shoes and yet another cookbook. Because normal people buy their cookbooks at shoe stores. At any rate it is so good it tricked my mother into eating tofu. (Shhh! I didn't tell her!) Of course it was only 1/4 of a cup to replace some egg but still. So far I have only tried the lemon bars and brownie recipes but they came out pretty well. They were the first things for me to try because up to now all vegan brownies I have found have been such a pain in the ass to make and I had no idea how to veganize lemon bars.

So maybe you would like to know what this book is. It is The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks' Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. It is 288 pages long and includes beautiful photographs, a glossary, conversion tables, a polite explanation why milk sucks (if you don't already know) and other useful tips.

Also this is the last day of freedom before Amos and I start our new jobs. Blagh. If you know us and actually care where we will be working I am working here and Amos here. Did I already post this information? Who knows.

I am sorry but milk does not suck!! Mother's milk rocks!! Just came from a La Leche League meeting. Can you tell? Ian would agree I think. You've just gotta get your source right:-)
