Vegan consideration awards go to:

What I have had time to cook this Christmas:
Kakie's friend Julie posted that I should DEFINITELY make the microwave caramel corn I had linked back on this blog post . So I did. I didn't have two of the ingredients so subbed maple syrup for corn syrup and evaporated cane juice for brown sugar and all turned out well. And of course vegan butter for dairy butter. But watch out for your microwave because the carmel will go EVERYWHERE if you are not careful. And it was good! Thanks Julie!
Chocolate Pumpkin Pie with walnut crust.
Grogg/Wassail. I had a breakdown in Virgina and had to make some : )
