I have my new computer mostly figured out now. Pictures are still giving me a bit of problem but I'll brave forward.

I can only hear about how awesome a recipe is for so long before I have to cave and try it. This is how it was with the Blackened Tofu from edbv. I can totally see what all the hype is about. I loved the crust that the tofu got and the seasoning was spot on. Even the kids liked it.
I bought The Nutritional Yeast Cookbook because it was on sale for like $4. Who could pass that up. The first recipe we tried was the Melty White Cheese. I served it over macaroni and Ramsey was the only one who would eat it. I didn't even bother with a picture.

I was a little afraid with that kick off but found another promising looking recipe. I crossed my fingers and made Pasta with Sweet Onions & Pine Nuts. This was much better. Joe and I both enjoyed it and the kids were cool unless they got a chunk of onion. The dish itself looks pretty bland and would be a bit more eye catching, and healthy, with some broccoli or other veg. I'll make this again.
Last up is a slight variation on Lolo's Baked Vegan Donuts. We had a friend in town who is as crazy over lemon as I am. I made her lemon donuts as a treat. I left out the nutmeg and cinnamon and used lemon juice instead of soy milk. They turned out great and were frosted with left over lemon cream cheese frosting.

Hopefully, I'm back on track now and can figure out this new photo software.

I've been hearing a lot about that blackened tofu as well. I guess I will have to try it. Your donuts look so good!
