I have been going through a lot lately, I have been fighting an infection due to several painful abscesses on two of my teeth. I am having a surgery next week and I have been a mess because of that. My anxiety and fear from the surgery are making my life miserable and I cannot wait for this to be over. In the last few days two very nice things happened that made my days a little brighter and put a smile on my face. Several months ago Eating Well bought a recipe from me. They recently published the recipe in their newest cookbook and sent me a copy. I was thrilled to see my recipe in a beautiful cookbook. It felt really good :-) They even took a nice picture of the pie and put in the cookbook as well. That is probably one of my best recipes for a dessert so far: "Chocolate Raspberry Tofu Pie".
This is the cookbook :-) You can buy it from Amazon, it has a lot of vegan recipes, and most of the vegetarian recipes in this book can be easily veganized. Each recipe has a nutritional information and many of them have very useful and informative notes.
Few days ago I got a beautiful surprise package from my friends at the Czech Vegan Society .
The package was full of vegan goodies, spices, salamis, pates, delicious cookies, spreads, puddings, and a big supply of my favorite vanilla sugar that I use for baking :-) These guys are wonderful, they are working very hard on making Czech Republic a better and more compassionate place and they are raising awareness about veganism and cruelty-free living. Czech Republic is fairly new to veganism and there is not a big vegan community so it is very impressive that they are doing this despite all the hard-headed meat-eating population. Please, check out their website, they have an English version as well.
