By jove, I think I've got it.
My weekend conquer-the-recipe quest, fueled by Julia Child DVDs, and recipe contests is bearing fruit.
I'm not going to lie. There was a delicious nugget of gold, FINALLY, at the end of the recipe rainbow. But I had to slog through a few fails before I found it.
And the other two recipes... One...still a fail...but it was only attept two and the future tweaks are in mind and promising.
The third. Well. Four out of four of us liked it. So it's a keeper. I'm not going to share them quite yet. Gotta send them into the contest first. But. They're coming.
And. Somehow I've ended up finding or buying three more Vegan cook books. Yup. I'm crazed.
