A Ton of Stuff!

I just realized I haven’t posted anything for days even though I have been cooking. I’ve been crazy busy with the new pup, some nice distractions,  and we had some pipe problems in my building which have resulted in scores of repairmen! So on to the food! First up I made some Rosemary Focaccia Rolls using the recipe from Veganomicon:

I just love the way these turned out. My kitchen smelled wonderful as they were baking!


I used them for black bean burgers:

I finally was able to try a vegan donut from Dee’s Bakery, all I can say is YUM!
Vegan Donuts!

Vegan Donuts!

If you live in Los Angeles get your @ss up early and head over to Intelligentsia or the other various places that carry these donuts, they are definitely worth the effort!   UPDATE: DON’T PATRONIZE! PLEASE SEE THIS!
I also made a Mexican Chocolate Cake that has cayenne pepper in it. I’ve decided that I have a bottle of the world’s hottest cayenne pepper because I just put in a teeny tiny pinch and this cake is on fire! I used the recipe from here.

It looks all nice and sweet but its on fire! I tell you! It’s actually really tasty with some vanilla vegan ice cream and berries.
Fire in your mouth!

I have also been trying out more tester recipes for Terry’s Vegan Latina book but I think I’ll save those shots for another post – til then…

    I am not a vegetarian, but your pictures are very inspiring. You really make the food look good – it probably tastes good too. Do you eat cupcakes every day?
