Hey everyone! How have you all been? It’s a bit late to say this but Happy New Year to everyone! I have been out for so long. I missed a lot! I took a whole lot of time off from blogging, I don’t know how it happened. I took many pictures of food that I cooked I guess to lazy to blog about them. couldn’t take it any more, I just had to start blogging again! Hopefully I will not stop blogging again from now on, I really hope I don’t!
I have started testing recipes for Isa and Terry’s upcoming Cookie Book. So far I have made the Brownies from the new book. These brownies tasted really really good. This is just how a brownie is supposed to taste like! The next following weeks I am going to be testing the last of cookies that are left to test. I am really excited!
Earlier this week, for the first time I made burgers! I made the Veganomicon Black Bean Burgers. The black bean burgers were really tasty! I used a fry and bake method for them because I wasn’t sure they would firm up from frying. I think it was because I put to much water. Next time I would probably reduce the amount of water for these. So anyway after I fried them until they were golden about 3 minutes per side, I baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes until they were nice and firm to the touch. To accompany the burgers I made some sweet potato fries which I spiked up with some chili powder. The fries were really good…this was my first time I made sweet potato fries so I was really excited about them! These black-bean burgers have inspired me to make more burgers from now on!
These burgers are awesome!
Here are some Ginger Pear Waffles from vwav that I made earlier today. These waffles were really tasty and had nice spice from them which I enjoyed. I wish there was a little more pear flavor in the waffles but I used apple cider instead of the pear juice as I didn’t have pear juice. Next time I think I will take Isa’s tip and fold in crystallized ginger in the waffles. Imagine how good that would be!
Wow..It’s been really fun writing this post! I am really trilled to be apart of this awesome blogging community once again!
