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!

Here are the brownies from the Isa and Terry’s upcoming Cookie Book. This book is going to be amazing!

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!
