Grilled Marinated Swordfish
The flavors were good but a little too tangy.. it needed a little sweetness. Maybe more herbs. In any case what helped the marinade soak in was to poke the fish all the way through with a fork. And like another commenter I am also in NYC and it's the middle of the polar vortex so grilling isn't an option, but I used a stovetop grill which resulted in a nice aesthetic (see photo). I served it with sweet and sour kale. I would try it again and maybe make some adjustments.

Powdered Sugar
I used a food processor and followed the instructions exactly.. I processed each small batch for about 5 minutes. It was almost like powdered sugar, but not quite. Then I tried to use it in frosting and it resulted in gritty butter that I had to throw away. I'll be sticking to store bought.

Vegan Lasagna I
FANTASTIC RECIPE. I was not expecting it to come out so good. Not only it exceeded expectation, I think it may be in the top 5 best lasagnas I have ever had in my life! I made a couple of modifications - I added a lot more salt than the recipe calls for (personal preference), about 2 tbs sugar to the tomato sauce (a MUST to cut the acidity) and like a previous commenter suggested, I mixed the crumbled tofu with a roux made of flour, vegan margarine and vegetable oil. A non-vegan would never be able to tell the difference. I wasn't even expecting THAT part - the tofu is indistinguishable from ricotta cheese in this recipe! I never write recipe reviews so I was definitively blown away by this one. And I'm not even vegan, I just like the challenge (and health benefits) of vegan cooking. Thank you so much for this recipe!
