Cupcakes, getting a job, mac n' cheese, and staying balanced... and the kitchen sink.

Cookbook * Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
Recipe * Cappuccino Cupcakes Filled with Espresso Creme
Yumm or Yuck * Yumm

I got a job in January and moved house in February - in the process I have been a bad blogger and even worse cook! I am reminded through this experience that you can only have so much thai take-out, deli food and (oh -gasp) frozen dinners. I really do miss cooking - it is a fun/creative type outlet for me and I enjoy the process of cooking as much as eating. Plus, I think it is far easier to balance your diet when you cook at home.
Below are some photos taken over the last few months that I haven't had a chance to blog on.

First, cupcakes made by a good friend here in Seattle. She isn't vegan, but loves the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World cookbook - which of course makes any good friend a great friend, especially when they make cupcakes for YOU!! These were sooo delicious!


Cookbook * The Real Food Daily Cookbook
Recipe * Mac n' Cheese
Yumm or Yuck * Yumm

And here is a pic of my new favorite mac n' cheese recipe taken from Real Food Daily. The cheese sauce is amazing - I might add less agar next time so it isn't as thick. Wondering what agar is - here is a pic below. Far better than the Vegan Planet recipe - I think. Good stuff!

I have been a bad cook lately too, because I've been busy. Anyway, I'll have to try out those recipes. Thanks!

You might like the Vegan Forums.

I ran across your blog a while back and was wondering if you would be back... it's great! I had just been wondering about the mac-n-cheese recipe you chose.. maybe we'll give it a shot - I still haven't found "the" one...

I just found this blog. Is this a cookbook blog (like my www.delectablevegetable.blogspot.com) or do you just test recipes. The mac and cheese looks good, but too bad it uses agar agar. I love the stuff, but its crazy expensive.

Thanks guys!! Do try the cheese sauce - best when right out of the oven.

Liliy, try buying your agar at a asian food market - it is MUCH cheaper than buying it at a natural food store.

Agar (aka agar agar or kanten) is a sea vegetable/seaweed. It gels like gelatin, but it doesn't need to be refridgerated in order to set(although it does help). You typically use 1 tablespoon agar flakes(it also comes in bars and powder, but I've only used flakes) per cup of liquid for a firm-set gel, or less for a thick liquid. You can use agar and a starchy thickener like arrowroot or kuzu powder to make a sort of "custard", too.

The stuff you find at Asian markets is typically not very good quality, and often contains sugar, colors and other additives.

I don't really like Eden brand agar because it seems like the flakes take an awfully long time to soften. I like Mitoku or Ohsawa brand, but these brands are typically mail order.

I've been a bad blogger myself LOL

The Mac n' cheeze looks simply amazing.

I should try those cupcakes, too.
