Me, Myself, and I

Yesterday afternoon P and some of his friends went out on the lake to wake board, and I had the evening all by myself. I was in the mood to do a little baking, because its been a while, so I went to the library and found a vegan cook book and decided to give it a try. I came home, made a homemade pizza, put Frank on the radio, and began to bake. I made a vegan spice cake, vegan brownies with tofu, and vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. And you know what, they were not good. UHH. But that is ok. The spice cake is the best of the 3, it just does not have a ton of flavor, and I need to make some icing to go on it. The brownies, while very chewy, have 0 taste. P got home, picked up the brownies, took a bite, and had to spit it out. That's how bad they were! The cookies got tossed immediately because they were not even edible.
But, despite my set back as the next great vegan baker (Just kidding, I am not even sure there is such a thing) I had a really good time. I really enjoy baking and trying new things. So I am going back to the library to return the book and see what else I can find.
One more thing, my library now how this feature when you check out that tells you how much money you have saved by checking out books, and so far this year, I have saved more than $300.00 by checking out books rather than buying them. Sweet!

oh, since when did you become vegan? just kidding! I have had those recipe flops too. LOVE checking out recipe books at the library now. It is like trying before you buy. Hope your next book produces a few yummies.

Hehe! I've never tried tofu or any vegan dishes so I'll wait until you achieve great vegan baker status and get your recipes! How was the pizza?
