4;; Most disastrous food failure?

V’con’s “MacDaddy” –  I think it would have been best NOT baked, or just broiled for  bit to brown the top. It was seriously dry and not tasty. I couldn’t even pawn it off on other veg*ns 😦

5;; Favorite pickled item?

Mustard Pickles ! With onions, cucumber, and baby bits of cauliflower. Oh, and pickled beets!

6;; How do you organize your recipes?

My vegan cookbooks are stacked on top of each other largest to smallest. Zine’s included. I have recipes all through my journals that are tagged and labeled for easy access. Any printouts from the internet I have organized by the type of dish in one big, black binder covered in AR stickers. There are also bookmarks on my computer and random papers strewn about from times I did not have my notebook or have acquired the recipe pre-written.

7;; Compost, trash, or garbage disposal?

Trash, recycling, and compost! I have my own compost. I don’t trust the city with my good food scraps. They belong in my garden.

8;; If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 foods…what would they be (don’t worry about how you’ll cook them)?

Are we talking whole foods or dishes? Without knowing I cannot proceed.

9;; Fondest food memory from your childhood?
I have too many! Probably that period in my life where I would get the frosted mini-wheats and saw off the unfrosted size on the  edge of the box leaving a deep fluffy mess of shredded wheat at the bottom of the bag. This would irritate my best friend Kathleen so much, and I would giggle.

10;; Favorite vegan ice cream?

Praline Pecan Soy Decadent !

11;; Most loved kitchen appliance?

Immersion Blender!

15;; Favourite vegan recipe to serve to an omni friend?

16;; Seitan, tofu, or tempeh?

All of the above, please. They are all part of a healthy, happy diet and I do NOT approve of you making me choose. Harumph!

17;; Favorite meal to cook (or time of day to cook)?

Mid-morning or Mid-evening! I like to bake on a whim late at night and in the mornings I am down for heavy prep and heavy dish duty.

18;; What is sitting on top of your refrigerator?

A big, leafy plant. An orange bread box. A panda head lunch box. Two black mugs in the shape of coal miners heads. Some vintage bottles full of beach glass.
