Vegan Bake Sale Testing and Viva Vegan by Terry Romero now available!!!

If you follow me on Facebook or here for that matter, you know I do a bit of testing for awesome vegan cookbook authors. My latest ventures into the test kitchen are for Carla Kelley's upcoming Vegan Bake Sale. I've been known to be pretty good at getting around the kitchen, but not so great at the whole baking thing. Enter Carla whose recipes are turning me into a respectable baker. As a matter of fact, people may start thinking I'm good at this thanks to her recipes!! There is no release date for the book yet, but I will post here when I find out.

Here is a little sampling of some of the goods. The first one is my absolute favorite.

Car Tire Cookies

I have traditionally had issues with yeasted baked goods. These Hot Cross Buns were perfect!

Hot Cross Buns

Lemon Mousse Pie

The savory stuff is brag-worthy as well

Up Side Down Olive, Sun Dried Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper “Cake”

Asparagus, Pine Nut, and Roasted Garlic Quiche

Viva Vegan is OuT!!!!!!!

In other testing news, a while back I was testing for Terry Romero's Viva Vegan. Viva Vegan has hit the shelves. You can get it through Amazon or at B & N. If you want to check out some pictures of the fabulous vegan fare and you are a member of Flickr, Click here to see my testing album. You can also see some of my pictures tagged Viva Vegan on this blog.

May I recommend the Spicy Tortilla Casserole with Roasted Pablanos?
Omnis and Veggies both love this one!
