Back in the saddle again…

I think most bloggers will agree with me – have you ever had a post that attracted a lot of buzz, the most hits, the most comments, yada, yada, yada… So you decide to leave it up for a while. Then as the days pass you wonder, I am ever gonna be able to replicate that? All of  a sudden nothing seems “blogworthy” and well, you all probably know the rest of the story. So I decided that today is the day I finally post something, anything, and as it might not be as exciting as Daiya cheese here is what I’ve been up to in the kitchen lately…

Testing, testing, testing and then some more testing. I have to admit, I love testing recipes for upcoming cookbooks! Here are some pictures for Julie Hasson’s  upcoming Vegan Diner book:

Dark Chocolate Cherry Cake

Chocolate, cherries, and rum = yum!
Chocolate chip cookies, also from Julie:


Next up is Vegan Latina food porn, Terry Hope Romero’s  upcoming book. Check out these seitan and potato tacos – one of my favorite taco recipes:

Roasted corn like the kind you get from street vendors with cashew cream and ancho chili powder. I could eat this everyday! Oh and look at this lovely horchata:


I almost died when I had this – VEGAN CUBAN SANDWICH – that’s right! Terry is a genious:

And finally some bread pudding with mango and guava – delicious!

So I guess that’s it for now. Leave a comment and say Hi! if you want, my feelings won’t get hurt if you don’t…

    I have to say, I’ve been seeing Vegan Latina tester pics floating around the blogosphere but none of them have really made me want to buy the book like these do. Horchata!!!! Hola ole!!!!!

    I’d say that’s a pretty good follow-up! Amazing pictures too. I really get a kick out of recipe testing, I just wish I could get in on some more of it because everything you posted looks so delicious! I’m super excited about both of these books.
