misslynx: (Misc - Small Manageable Goats)
I happened upon the blog at Post-Punk Kitchen last night (that's the web site run by the authors of Vegan with a Vengeance, The Veganomicon, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, etc.), and when I went to add the RSS feed to my LJ friends page, apparently it didn't have a syndicated feed set up here yet, which somewhat astonishes me. So I made one for it - if anyone wants to have awesome vegan recipes regularly showing up on your friends page (whether or not you are actually vegan - most of these recipes look delicious purely on their own merits, and can probably be enjoyed by anyone), add [ profile] theppk_blog.

In related news: despite my hair-raising adventures in baking stuff for [ profile] the_moogie's Christmas party, I am filled with the desire to bake again. My spiffy new Serious Cupcake Pan demands to be filled again, and I am contemplating trying my hand at Irish soda bread as well (largely because unlike other forms of bread, it sounds relatively easy and nearly idiot-proof). Or cornbread, for which there is a tasty-sounding recipe in the Veganomicon.

I think I most desirous of making something that is not sweet first, because I have eaten a lot of sugar over the past few days. It is dangerous to send leftover cookies and cupcakes home with me, especially when the cupcakes are too sticky to hand out to random people as I did with a few of the cookies. Thus the idea of making bread or biscuits or something. But the directions for making yeast breads are terrifyingly incomprehensible to me, and sourdough bread (which I actually like better than yeast bread as a general rule) requires complicated microbiological voodoo. But soda bread pretty much just requires grade-school chemistry (put an acid and a base together, and presto foamy), which I'm pretty sure I can handle. And cornbread doesn't even require that.

Stay tuned for the further baking adventures of our intrepid heroine...
