About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I'm a vegetarian, and somewhat of a "vegan by convenience" -- that is, if it's easy to replace dairy or eggs with an alternative, I'll do it. I love trying to create vegetarian and vegan versions of recipes.

Vegetarian Gravy
I made this to go with veggie-meatloaf (seitan) and mashed potatoes. I substituted fake chicken broth (made from Whole Foods fake chicken bouillon cubes). I didn't have sage, so I just put in some all purpose seasoning. Tasted great! Note: this turned out much thicker than other gravy recipes I've used in the past -- this is not necessarily a bad thing but may be useful to know.

Jeanie's Falafel
The mix was easy to prepare, and I always appreciate eggless recipes. But unfortunately, they fell apart in the oil. I've tried this twice, and it happened both times. In reading the reviews, I'm clearly not the only one who had this problem. So, perhaps this is an issue that should be addressed somewhere in the instructions -- how do you prevent them from falling apart?

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Terrific recipe. I've made these cookies as directed (with the egg), as well as with Ener-G egg replacer, and they turned out wonderfully both ways. I also tried a healthier version by replacing the margarine with Earth Balance (original). When I did this, the cookies did not spread out and flatten -- so I ended up with thick ball-like cookies. However, they were still soft and tasted terrific. I am guessing it's the margarine that makes them flatten and spread.
