Christmas 2011: Vegan food experimentation – the good, the bad, and the really really nasty!

SO my mom and I went on a cooking bonanza during the holiday…some of it was AWESOME (those recipes coming!)…those that were terrible, well those are going to stay quiet, but I will of course post pictures! 🙂  Enjoy.

Vegan Buried Cherry fudge cookies – simply awesome and addictive. Thankfully we made 21 dozen, 18 of which we gave away 🙂
Vegan Guacamole (yes, I know, you’re wondering: isn’t guacamole already vegan? Answer: nope, most places add sour cream or yogurt…some add cheese). VERY very good and very easy. My secret ingredient…well, you’d never guess 🙂
Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies – Absolutely NASTY. OMG. There were actually a previous batch, which we thought was the worst. Then we had these…we were wrong the first time. Both batches: inedible. Sigh.
Vegan Nachos: AWESOME! I love it! I made my own nacho cheese, and we were really really happy with them 🙂
“Creamy” Pasta: Absolutely the most disgusting thing we made. I tried the “sauce” before it went into the oven, and would not even try a little bit when it came out. GROSS!!! Forks over Knives recipe: EPIC FAIL!!!!
Mixed Berry compote with Brandy: Awesome dessert! Made a mixed berry compote with brandy (aw yeah), filo dough, and soy vanilla ice cream. Pretty great!
Chili: Best Chili I have ever made! I made enough to last me a month…but that’s ok with me! Seriously awesome and spicy – and of course, completely vegan (with soy crumble). Add a little vegan sour cream, daiya and yummmm 🙂
These are just a few of the highlights…Hope you enjoyed reading my foibles…many more to come to be sure 🙂 LOL.
