Cakey, fudgy, allspicy bombshells
I was not expecting Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar from baking power couple Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero to be in stores yet. I almost ordered it online but am glad that I didn't or I might be waiting on it.
Waking up to blondies
I paged through the book and decided to buy it for the blondie recipes alone. What I love about blondies is that they are a blank canvas. With 43 cents worth of sweet potato (.88 lb at Spring Garden Supermarket), the Spiced Sweet Potato Blondies came together quickly. I had no idea that they would taste like Natalie Portman's beauty.
I discovered another surprise in the beginning pages of the book (media praise). One of the lines from the Philadelphia City Paper was plucked from a book review that I did for Veganomicon from 2007. Somebody actually read it.
I am already loving this book and have signed a contract to make Lazy Samoas for my fiancé. The Silk Nog in my fridge is begging to be a blondie sacrifice. I am opening an only-blondie truck underneath the Girard El in three years.
