Balsamic Glazed Carrots
a little too balsamic like other reviewers said. i think it would be good with a hint of balsimic- but with this was too overwhelming.

Pecan Pie V
this was great. my husband is a huge pecan pie fan. in fact- its his favorite dessert and he can eat half a pie in one sitting. I was tired of him buying the garbage one in the freezer department so i made this one. It tastes so much better. I used it with a buttery flaky pie crust on this site.

Vegan Cupcakes
my taste tester was my toddler. I said "Charlie!! try a CUPCAKE" I knew if it tasted bad- she would shake her head "No" if i tried to offer her more. Instead she came back and her spoke her first two syllable word "Kekcay"=cupcake. she loved it. ran back for more and more. I baked these for a friend that is doing the 30 day vegan trial to see if she could like it. It was her birthday and so i thought i'd try these. She loved them. Even the table of men across from us at the restaurant we went to- who initially snickered when i told them they were vegan cupcakes- had one and liked it. I used the confectioner sugar and orange juice icing someone else recommended. It gave it a nice citrus kick.
