I recently went through my mom's recipe collection again, looking for sugary inspiration and I stumbled upon one that was given to her by one of our family friends. Actually, the family friend I'm talking about has a daughter who's vegan. So this recipe is dedicated to you Jennifer! Next time I'll have to make it the way your Mom actually had it written down.
So I should probably explain how I went wrong. On the recipe card, it had all the ingredients and directions on the front. It basically said to throw the ingredients in a blender or food processor (which I did) and put into a pan and bake for 10 minutes to set. So I did. I then proceeded to flip over the recipe later and realized that was the directions for the pie crust alone, not the filling. Oops. I'm definitely going to make this again since it's so good! You'll just have to wait for my 2nd edition!
- Somewhere around 40 vanilla wafer cookies
- 1/4 cup melted margarine (I used Earth Balance Margarine)
- 2 medium bananas
- 1 quart of vegan strawberry ice cream, softened
- 8 oz of canned, crushed pineapple
- 1 cup of vegan whipped cream
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts
So off the topic of the pie for a second, this week I came up with the idea of "Vegan Confessions". I know we'd all like to think we're perfect, but we're not. Also, I know being "Vegan" doesn't automatically make you a certain way, we're all so completely different! What spawned this idea was that I was sitting in the kitchen at my Aunt and Uncle's house and Keeva was lying next to me. Then I noticed a bug crawling on her and as I took a closer look, it was a tick! Now, she's had ticks crawling on her before and I usually go put them outside, but this time I flushed it down the drain, and guilt ensued.
"Hi, My name is Matthew, and I killed a bug" There, I said it! Does anybody else have any Vegan confessions they'd like to fess up to? Vegan Heartland is a safe place, so don't be shy!
