Well....I know...its been a minute since my last post. Shameful! I've been a busy bee lately. Many apologies!
I have (no surprise) been reading some great new cookbooks. My favorite by far has been Vegan Soul Kitchen from Terry Bryant. THIS COOKBOOK IS PHENOMENAL!
When I first picked it up at the library, it was on a whim. I was thinking that it might be interesting, but didn't really expect to like it that much. Boy - I was wrong! The ingredients are accessable and up to my whole, natural food standards, and even though I am not vegan, I love that I now have an arsenal of recipes to go to that do not use dairy or eggs. These recipes are such a far cry from your traditional "soul food" dishes - but in a VERY good way. I will be buying this book from Amazon - and I suggest you do the same (or at least go get it from your library!).
As I said before, I've been crazy busy, and haven't had time to bake like I would like. So I unfortunately do not have any recipes or stories to share. I plan on making several dishes, though, from Vegan Soul Kitchen, and will post my triumphs (or failures) as they come.
