Several days ago, I made a recipe from Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan, by Dreena Burton. (I found a copy of this recipe online here, but I don't know if they had permissions to post it-and it leaves out the chipotle)At the time, I really needed to find a use for all my sweet potatoes. This recipe is amazing! It's the Sweet and Sour Chipotle Tempeh with Sweet Potatoes. If you have this book.....you MUST make this. It's really sweet though, so even though I already cut down on the sugars, I would do it even more next time. I left out the oil and I used chipotle powder. I also bought a fresh pineapple to use in it.....and eat the rest :) So good.
Then I made Ani Phyo's Raw Sun Burgers from Ani's Raw Food Kitchen. (And I really want her new book....maybe one of these days!). I didn't have a dehydrator, so for me, these worked better as a "spread" on my sprouted grain bread. And, to top it off, I put some raw ranch dressing on top and it was sooooo good! The dressing is from Rawdawg Rory (click on his recipe videos). It's my new favorite thing! I had it on some salad the other day and then on some potatoes yesterday....you HAVE to try it. The only thing is that it called for a bit too much salt for me, so I'll go light on that next time. These "raw" people are so creative! If only I could come up with this stuff.

Ok, let's move on to dessert. Averie always has delicious stuff on her site, and so I made her Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Softserve . This stuff is unbelievable!
And here's some more Zucchini Spiral pics, with raw marinara:
Ok, I think maybe I'm caught up???
Vacation planning.....which would you pick and why?
Portland, Maine or Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Thinking of doing a weekend at one or the other sometime this summer.
