I have an embarrassing number of e-mails wondering whether I have dropped off the face of blogging forever. Eeeep.
No, I have not.
People, Thank-You. But I am just not that interesting, I don't have anything amazing or yummy to report or any breath-taking photos I just have to share.
Life has somehow charged into overdrive and I'm attempting to keep up. Or catch up. The rest of my blogger-friends seem to be surviving beautifully, but somehow I'm a bit swamped. After Christmas it'll be WAY less crazy in this household and I'll be back to blogging as much as ever. Not to fear; I enjoy cooking vegan, creating messes, inventing interesting recipes and eating tasty food FAR too much NOT to keep talking (or blogging) about it.
But, for those who asked - here's what the Fairly Odd Tofu Family has been doing the last few weeks...
¤ Dressing up pretty for School Christmas Concerts, Holiday Banquets, Choir Productions and other fun and festive Christmas-type events.
¤ Playing the Role of VERY PROUD MOM for all my kids' events.
¤ Hanging out with loved ones. (My oldest 'Sprout' and her Auntie - aren't they beautiful?)
¤ Hanging out with crazy friends.
¤ Choosing and cutting the "perfect" tree. (The tiny one above was for my oldest daughter's dorm room).
¤ Playing in the snow.
¤ And baking Christmas cookies!!
YES! I have a recipe, and it's actually a timely, and useful one!!
Here's my all-purpose basic sugar-cookie recipe. It's simple vegan-ized Betty Crocker or someone, more of a short-bread texture than some Christmas Cookies. I didn't include a frosting recipe because that part is open to your preference and interpretation....
1 cup (2 sticks) vegan margarine (I use Nucoa because it's cheap, but Willow Run is good too)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
"Egg-replacer": 1 Tbsp. tofu blended with 1 Tbsp. soymilk and 1 tsp. flax seeds
