This was the last creation of my old kitchen- Blueberry hazelnut coffee, modified from a coffeecake in La Dolce Vegan. I'll try to repost my modified recipe before I return the book to the library. I'm trying to accept LDV for the "quick/easy" recipes it prides itself on, but I flip the pages wanting something complicated not calling for "vegan cheese" with more than a few ingredients.
Why the blueberry addition? 5 lbs of fresh picked blueberries from Sauvie Island~ (aka the best part of unpacking/waiting for the POD weekend) Penne with chopped roma tomatoes, spinach, cremini mushrooms and garlic. The tomatoes and the garlic sat overnight and were juicy awesome. Behind it - glass of red wine, I forget what.
Last of the frozen Courage Burgers, on Dave's Killer Rye bread with lettuce, tomato, tempeh bacon!, Vegenaise and Frank's Red Hot. Yowza. A side of the best potatoes ever, csa share yukon gold roasted with coarse sea salt, freshly ground pepper, canola oil and fresh dill.
Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti from The Wholesoy Cookbook. I made a light cocoa/vanilla icing and decorated the top with toasted coconut. We had a guest coming over, and these popped out at me because the recipe called for silken tofu, which I had, but even toying with it, I wasn't happy with the end result. Tofu didn't belong in these guys, but the hazelnut meal was nice. The best biscotti I've made has always used Ener-g, and I'm not a big user of that in the first place. I posted my favorite biscotti recipe here.
Well that's it for now as blogger beta isn't showing more than a few photos, even though they seem to upload - there is more in store: including vegan alfredo and VWAV breakfast grub. I haven't had time to visit many other blogs, so what's new with you? I've dyed my hair and been reading while trying to think of ideas for all the fresh herbs my boss gifted me. Any tips on the blogger beta are also appreciated.
