these are some of my goals. they're not all of my goals, mind you, just a few of my goals relevent to this blog.
vegan jello shots
i've tried twice, and the second time was measurably better than the first, and when frozen was like a vodka granita, but still a little gross. i won't share the recipe, because it's still awful, but it will be here soon enough.
i've been a vegan since i was fifteen. so i've never had one.
yeah, i know you can buy vegan whipped cream, and it's pretty good, too. but i want to get a dispenser with a nitrous oxide canister and i want to make almond, hazelnut, coconut, and soy-based whips. but kids, whip-its give you brain damage, and you want to be clever vegan hedonists, right? well, maybe just a few times.
ok, i've made vegan cinnamon buns before and they were great, but i don't have a recipe exactly, so i'll have to make them again. the same goes for doughnuts. chocolate-frosted doughnuts. that's right.
nut and soy based cheeses
there are a million recipes out there for vegan cheeses. which of them are any good? i don't want to eat anything that tastes like ear wax. also, i want the cheese to melt on my pizza, goddammit. my great-grandparents did not get on a boat and cross the atlantic to put me in a world without pizza. actually, vegan gourmet cheese alternative is fabulous. but we're going to work out a recipe. guess what's in it? agar agar. that's right.
there's vegan nutella at at least one hasidic grocery store (on hewes street a block or two below broadway) but it's not as good as it could be. too sweet, not rich enough.
