Rick Bayless' 24 hour cajeta

I was reading "The Family Circle" and found a recipe for 24 hour cajeta. For those who don't know, cajeta is a milk based caramel and is great on ice cream, cake, etc. I wanted to try it, it appears to be very easy to make in that all you have to do it cook it in a crockpot for about 24 hours. :) the only thing is that I'm a vegan and can't use milk! So I've decided to try either almond or soy milk.  Coconut milk is also in the running.  I'm off to make decisions and to try it. I'll let you know how it progresses!  Wish me luck!

I found the recipe interesting and did try it - which was a disaster!! Started it in my crock pot around 6pm. Got up around 6 a.m. next day and went to kitchen ready to stir as indicated. What I found was a congealed mess. Could not even stir. Had to dig out of crock pot and toss. Yes, I did follow recipe as stated.

About Me
I'm a reformed vegetarian. I used to add eggs and cheese to my diet but have decided that if I'm going to be really committed to vegetarianism, then I need to be a vegan. It's a lot tougher then I thought it would be, most vegetarian meals use eggs and/or cheese so it's an adventure to replace them with substitutions and taste what happens.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican food. My favorite thing to make is green TVP enchiladas. My best friend gave me the recipe using chicken but I started using TVP and they come out wonderfully!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My children and I love to make pumpkin bars. We always make them when the pumpkins are harvested.
My cooking triumphs
I baked and frosted a cake with a barbie in it. My daughter absolutely loved it, of course she was only three years old.
My cooking tragedies
I was 15 and my mother left me in charge of making a meatloaf which I mixed and put in the oven at 350. Shortly afterward we started smelling smoke and when I opened the oven door smoke started billowing out and I could see a small grease fire. I had to call the fire department, they came out and the fire was no more.
