I got off track a little bit with my food pictures and posts for the past month and a half. I just kind of lost heart - not just about food but about lots of other things. Not to worry - I was still eating and mostly taking pictures of what I ate - I just didn't bother to download my photos.
I have done some cooking and lots of eating though. Here is a picture of the dulce sin leche cupcakes (recipe from VCTOTW)that I plan on making for the next vegan dinner:
I scored a dinner at Bridg's one night - jerk seitan with coconut rice and roasted asparagus:
This was some good stuff. She even made the seitan from scratch. I can't remember where she got the recipe from.....maybe a Sarah Kramer book?
And last night, I made vegan pound cake - first read about in Bazu's blog. Pound cake was always one of those few things that I really missed. My mother made it every year around Christmas time to give as gifts. I remember her telling me that her secret was to add the eggs (ewwww, yucko!) individually and beat thoroughly after each one. This cake recipe is as good as I remember pound cake tasting - oh happy day! After 9 years to finally eat pound cake again :-)
I made a double recipe and baked one large loaf and 3 mini loaves. I used lemon extract and got a little creative with some leftover batter. I tossed some poppyseeds in and baked it in muffin tins. This made the richest, densest, delicious lemon poppyseed muffins ever!
So there you have it, a little vegan food love going out into cyberspace :-)
