|The Far Eastland Bowl|
I'm not really very adventurous when I travel by myself - I much prefer to have a companion when I'm banging around a new city. So I was proud of myself for even going. (But damn, I'm old. I wish I had made it to Grins at Vanderbilt, but I think going to another college-age restaurant would have seriously demolished any ego I had left at that point...hahahaha!)
SO, to celebrate my middle-aged mom-ness and love of vegan food, I bring you some Halloween cookies I made with my kids:
I veganized my Mom's recipe for Vanilla Cookies, which I would share with you here, but I'm not satisfied with my veganizing on this recipe yet. The original recipe calls for FOUR eggs, so I used Ener-G to replace them, and as Isa Chandra says, well, they had a taste. I've never noticed Ener-G taste before, but I've never tried to replace four eggs worth of ingredient before either. My family didn't notice; they gobbled them up! But I need to work on this one before it's share-worthy. The frosting is from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, and the decor are just vegan chocolate chips and walnut pieces. They were good, just not great. I'll try to get these right by Christmas.
Happy Halloween, everyone! I've got four more nights to squeeze in scary movies before my family tells me to knock it off! How about you?
