come on, everybody's doing it...

yep, here's that freakin' vegan survey that so many people are doing. I'm nothing if not a follower... oh, and there's some craziness going on with the text formatting here...blogger seems to like italics, no matter what I do...

1. Favorite non-dairy milk?
vanilla unsweetened almond milk...yum.

2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to cook?
Crunchy Chocolate Truffle Pie, some sort of GF vegan scones, pumpkin rice pudding

3. Topping of choice for popcorn?

penzys' northwoods seasoning....or nooch/maple syrup (kinda like kettle corn ish?)

4. Most disastrous recipe/meal failure?
Katie's birthday last year...first attempt at veganizing a cake...kinda fell apart...had to mold it back into shape...or into some sort of shape.... It may not have looked pretty but it sure tasted good., very, um, dense. I'll have to find the pictures and post them some time, it was quite amusing

5. Favorite pickled item?

carrots and garlic...or maybe watermelon?

6. How do you organize your recipes?
in a folder on my desktop and in my favorites folder and in a little index card holder and in a folder and in a bunched up pile in the kitchen...aka, i don't organize my recipes...

7. Compost, trash, or garbage disposal?
trash/disposal currently but we've stated a compost pile at the new house. Oh yes, and there's the insta-compost machines, the rabbits and pigs, who eat green scraps, carrot butts, etc.

8. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 foods...what would they be (don't worry about how you'll cook them)?
apples, lentils, dark chocolate cake

9. Fondest food memory from your childhood?
my mom's shepard's pie. or making snickerdoodles at my grandmother's house with my cousins and using FAR too much food coloring to make them "pretty"

10. Favorite vegan ice cream?
temptations or purely decadent chocolate peanutbutter. Someone needs to make a wheat-free chocolate peanutbutter pretzel vegan ice cream...i still pine for my ben and jerry's chubby hubby!

11. Most loved kitchen appliance?
immersion blender or mandoline

12. Spice/herb you would die without?

13. Cookbook you have owned for the longest time?
Compassionate Cook

14. Favorite flavor of jam/jelly?
elderberry or grape or blueberry/apricot

15. Favorite vegan recipe to serve to an omni friend?
anything with vegan chocolate mousse...but now susan's "impossible pumpkin pie" may be the new go-to recipe, since EVERYONE loved it

16. Seitan, tofu, or tempeh?
tempeh just to eat straight (or at least minimally modified) but tofu is so versitile, I use it a lot more often.

17. Favorite meal to cook (or time of day to cook)?
dinner or brunch

18. What is sitting on top of your refrigerator?
an empty cooler, a jar of quinoa, a jar of black mustard seeds, a whole lot of cans of beer and a bunch of newspapers

19. Name 3 items in your freezer without looking.
tomato paste, ground flax seed, the last 3 crispy chocolate peanut butter cupcakes...

20. What's on your grocery list?
nooch, apples, "veggies for thanksgiving", frozen fruit, tofu, tempeh, soy yogurt.

21. Favorite grocery store?
wegmans...followed closely by trader joes and then by harvest co-op in cambridge, MA

22. Name a recipe you'd love to veganize, but haven't yet.
angel food cake...haha

23. Food blog you read the most (besides Isa's because I know you check it everyday). Or maybe the top 3?
have cake, will travel, where's the revolution?, fat free vegan

24. Favorite vegan candy/chocolate?

green and black's mint bar...or anything chocolate over 65%

25. Most extravagant food item purchased lately?
various holiday soy beverages...and excessive amounts of sugar cookie tea

26. What was your favorite food BEFORE becoming veg*n?
bbq chicken...and before going vegan, grilled cheese

27. Veganaise or Nayonaise?: um, whichever one tastes like miracle whip. I usually make my own mayo-like stuff, though

28. What is one recipe or ingredient or cooking technique that you've become familiar with in the last year that you can't imagine you ever lived without?

29. What is your favorite veg*n cookbook?

not to be a stereotype, but VWAV...though I haven't bought a new cookbook in a long time and haven't seen a lot of the new ones that sound so very awesome.

30. Make up another question (and answer it!)

yay, I love reading surveys! I'm a total joiner!
That chocolate truffle pie recipe you linked to looks wonderful- you're right, anything with vegan chocolate mousse is awesome.
I hope your house drama ends well!
