Recipe Successes

We have been trying some of the new recipes from the cookbooks I received as gifts and have already had some successes. Our favourite of the bunch so far is Chloe's Kitchen by Chloe Coscarelli, a former winner of the TV show "Cupcake Wars" who surprised everybody with how tasty vegan cupcakes could be. Her latest book is taking on the rest of the food world and has some great surprises in store for the uninitiated. 

We have tried and loved the following recipes so far: "Best-Ever Baked Macaroni and Cheese,"


"Chinese Takeout Chow Mein,"

and "Pancakes for Dinner." This last one was delicious, but the batter was too thick and they ended up being an inch and a half high. We would add more liquid next time - might even have missed an ingredient somewhere, who knows. So no pictures until we get them right!

We look forward to trying more recipes from this cookbook as well as the others.
