yum yum

continuing my theme of making you jealous of all the great christmas presents i received this year, i just wanted to rave about vegan yum yum, which was a gift from david and ellen. i've been a reader of lauren ulm's gorgeous blog for a long time, and i even have her application on MYphone. her food photos are gorgeous; i paged through this book on christmas day and wanted to make everything. so that's what i'm gonna do, starting (so far) with:

:: broccoli almond sweet-and-sour tofu ::
:: snickerdoodles* ::
:: apple cranberry salad with country-fried seitan ::
:: apple cider brussels sprouts ::
:: baked mac and cheeze ::

everything was delicious with the sole exception of the dressing on the salad (it's made with almonds and is supposed to be a creamy dressing, but i couldn't get the texture right, and the flavor was a little dull). i can't wait to make the other ninety-five recipes in this book!

*the official cookie of the checkout girl. mine weren't quite as perfect as hers, but almost.

Those totally ARE my official cookie, but we just tried the short bread recipe from Vegan Cookies Take Over the World, and there goes the "my bum needs to get smaller" plan. Delicious!

How's not this weekend but next for your clan, btw? Mark _might_ have Sunday totally off.
