I'm Bringing Chocolate Back...

You'll get what I mean in my new t/s post, where you'll also find my new Raw Orange Chocolate Truffles recipe, and also my Hot Coco-Cocoa recipe (from ed&bv).

And... the winner of the Top Chef giveaway is annalene, who commented:
1. I would love to see Isa Chandra Moskowitz as a guest judge, how perfect would that be?
2. Anything dealing with making a vegan cheese.
3. Make baby food!)

Annalene, please e-mail me at dreena@everydayvegan.com so I can get your mailing address.

To another matter... I've been asked for help with locating a private vegan chef in the Baltimore, Maryland area: Candidates must be vegan/vegetarian, and able to work as a live-out private chef, full-time for 1 person.  Prior experience cooking vegan gourmet meals is required.  Duties also include administrating the household - including running errands, paying bills, coordinating subcontractors for house maintenance.  If you want to apply for this position, or know someone that is interested, you can e-mail me at dreena@everydayvegan.com and I'll help get you in touch.

All for now... oh, except something to read and think about...

Those look yummy!

Please take a look at my blog to see a recipe I created for Oreo-Peanut-Butter Truffles. I'd love to hear what you think! They're (of course) vegan.

Bringing chocolate back... did it ever go away? ;)

Those look (and sound) really yummy! Unfortunately we have nut allergies in our house so they would be a big no-no.

On another totally un-related note, I recently purchased Vive le Vegan and every recipe I've tried so far I just love. I do have a question/comment about the Moroccan Chickpea patties. Are these supposed be firm enough to be like a burger? While they were absolutely scrumptious, I found them very soft and not really suitable for a burger. No biggie though, I just ate them as is. This recipe would actually be good as a dip or a quesadilla filling. Anyways, I was just wondering if it was something I did (or didn't do) or if the recipe is supposed to make a soft patty instead of a more firmer veggie burger thing?

GreenGal, you're in ultimate truffle territory with that concoction! Crazy yummy I'm guessing?!

Lacia, thanks for the note, and yes, those patties are far better eaten on their own rather than try to eat as a burger. They are too delicate for a burger bun - though, you could pop them in a pita and that would work. I drizzle them with a sauce and eat that way, with a side of roasted potatoes or something else. I did a post quite some time back with more info on them, if you want to check it out here http://vivelevegan.blogspot.com/2006/06/moroccan-chickpea-patties.html

Thanks so much for your reply Dreena. I just LOVE that recipe and I don't care how I eat it, just as long as I get to eat it! I have yet to find a recipe of yours that I don't like.
