Everyone that knows me knows I love corn – heck, I think it should be its own food group – its that good and versatile! When I saw this recipe on the tester site for Terry Hope Romero’s upcoming Vegan Latina book (yeah, yeah, I’m talking about this again!) I knew I had to make it. Creamy corn with garlic scapes in an empanada – need I say more!!

So I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never had oyster mushrooms. I typically stick to white, crimini, shiitake, and portabellas. Part of the reason I enjoy testing so much is because it gives me the opportunity to try new things. I’ve been wanting to try oyster mushrooms so when I saw a recipe using them from Terry Hope Romero, I jumped on it and am so glad I did. I picked up these beauties at the farmer’s market this weekend:
And after using the super secret tester recipe I got this:
So be on the lookout for Terry’s upcoming book and go ahead, be adventurous and try something new – like me, you might discover that you actually love something that you haven’t tried before!
Now, what to do with all the squash…

Today marks the beginning of VeganMoFo 2009! The challenge is to blog about all things vegan food related daily for the whole month of October and I can’t think of a better way to start than vegan snickerdoodles! The recipe is from Vegetarian Times and can be found here. These are super easy and taste oh so yummy!
For more info about VeganMoFo head over to Kittee’s blog for all of the details.
I had been neglecting the blog a bit because it was just too darn hot here in Los Angeles and I was feeling uninspired. Now that the weather is starting to cooperate I am totally excited for VeganMoFo and for the beginning of fall foods! While going through my photos today I found this pancake shot from a while back that I never posted. Pancakes with whole berry sauce from Vegan Brunch!
These are some of the best empanadas I have had! If I haven’t said it enough, this book is gonna rock the vegan world by storm! Here is a close-up of the inside:

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:

I haven’t been cooking much this week because I’ve been a little occupied with:

So I am a recipe tester for Terry Hope Romero’s upcoming Vegan Latina cookbook. This is my first time being a tester and I feel very fortunate to try out new recipes and especially because they are Latin recipes. I am Cuban and am accustomed to eating lots of Latin food so veganized old favorites is just well, fantastic. So far everything I have tried has been great – I can’t wait for the book to come out! Here are some teaser photos, enjoy!
Yeah, that’s right, homemade pupusas! Aren’t they pretty and oh sooo tasty!
