Vegan Brownies
I tried Certified MOxie's tips and mixed the water and flour first and let it sit for few minutes before adding everything else, and I used vegetable shortening instead of oil (not quite a full cup). I also used raw sugar. I added a few splashes of my morning coffee too and just mix it all with a fork. Finally, I used mini muffin tins because I am taking these to a potluck. Omg I just ate the first one- YUM! I am a crappy cook and please note I did use another recipe last night (Best Brownies) and tried to vegenize it by using egg substitute and olive oil in place of butter and eggs. They came out very oily and not so good. As I am going to a potluck I thought I better try again and voila-- the brownies came out fab!! I think the tips from Certified Moxie helped a lot. I am not a huge brownie fan, but these are rather luscious. I have to try not to eat more bfore the potluck now.

Vegan Crepes
OMG, so good. I went vegan about 6 months ago and I thought crepes were gone from my life forever. I made this recipe with vanilla almond milk and subbed the margarine for olive oil. I skipped the maple syrup. I did let the batter sit in the fridge for at least an hour. I had no problems flipping the crepes. I used a non stick crepe pan brushed in olive oil, and the long spatula I bought years ago specifically for crepes, but honestly I think any spatula would work. I used the ALL RECIPES converter doo-hickey to change this to 6 portions. Came out great! We had ours with strawberries and rice milk whipped cream. Hellllllooooooo good lord a mercy. I will make this recipe again, and try a savory version with spinach or something. So good.

Tofu Quiche with Broccoli
Very nice! We modified the heck out of it, but that's what one does with quiche recipes, right? Anyways we are delighted to be eating quiche again since we have gone vegan. I used very firm tofu and drained it by putting it between cutting boards and paper towels and stick a pot on top. I will not use a blender again, you can moosh it with a fork. We skipped the nutmeg. I used one shallot instead of an onion and I did not saute it. I threw in some vegan bacon all chopped up and some chopped olives. I used the tiniest bit of vegan parmesian cause that is all I had, and we hate vegan cheese anyways. I put some nutritional yeast on top though. We used no crust at all, just baked it in a loaf pan. It looked like a crustless quiche and tasted awesome. The kids devoured it and I am required to make this again. I will add more vegan parm next time and some roasted red peppers.
