In the theme of laziness I'm not getting up to grab the books these recipes come from. You'll be getting the name of the book and my guess at the title of the recipe. Let's consider it a game.
Below is Thai Curry Potatoes from The Vegan Family Cookbook. We all liked this pretty well. I'm not sure why it's called curry as I tasted NONE. I'll be upping the seasoning in this. Maybe I'll just up the seasoning in half as the kids were pretty happy with the original recipe. I was happy to see the spinach and coconut being sent down their gullets.
Truffles from edbv. These are wonderful! You can see Joe and Ramsey snitching some in the background. The tablespoon of Kahlua and 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract give these truffles a fruity background flavor almost like cherry. The coconut milk does not leave any notes of coconut that I could taste. In the future I'll double this recipe so that I'm using up a whole can of coconut milk and not just half. If I'm already going to all the effort to make truffles I figure the more the merrier.
I rolled my truffles in cocoa powder and stored them in the fridge. They defiantly have a better flavor and texture if allowed to sit out for a bit before eating. These remind me of the truffles that you can get from Henry's. Those were always my favorite. They just melt on your tongue.
That's all that's up for this week. On Thursdays me and my friend go to my moms and watch Project Runway. We record it on Wednesday and then can zip through the commercials. Anyway, I have plans to make the filling from the Pumpkin Cheese Pie, edbv, as a dip and a side of the Baked Cinnamon Chips. We have paired these together before and it was sensational. I even bought brown rice tortillas from Trader Joe's (the clerk said they were really good) as my mom is gluten intolerant. Everyone who has tried the cinnamon chips has LOVED them. They are so much better then the fried version. We make them constantly.
