Oaty thumbprint biscuits and a lesson: Vegan MoFo Green Gourmet Giraffe

You know how some days you have a bottle that you bought in a spirit of excitement but it has sat in the cupboards so long that you just want to finish it.  This bottle of quandong dessert sauce was like that.  I got so desperate to use it up that I put some into a pumpkin soup.  I had forgotten when I bought it that we don't really use dessert sauce.  I thought putting it into some thumbprint biscuts was a good way to use it up, but it seems dessert sauce does not work in thumbprint biscuits (or cookies).

I made the biscuits for bookclub.  They looked perfect before they went into the oven.  When they came out, the quandong dessert sauce had bled into the dough.  It shattered my dreams of beautiful biscuits with little colourful spots of jam.

No matter.  I took them along anyway and was surprised that they were enjoyed while we discussed Those Other Women by Nicole Moriarty.  One of my friends was quite taken with the bikkies because she found them a cross between her favourite biscuits: ANZACs and sesame snaps. I really liked that they were a little chewy and full of flavour.  I must try these again with proper jam that will keep its shape.

Miso Roasted Cauliflower Bowl: Vegan MoFo Green Gourmet Giraffe

A few weeks back I was surprised to find out how dependent I am on our wifi.  We got up one morning and found that our modem was not working.  The blue light just wasn't there.  I was quite grateful for the internet on my phone.  It meant I could check on recipes on my blog for ideas for dinner.  I really like searching back through my blog to find notes on what I did previously.  So this Miso Roasted Cauliflower Bowl, like so many recipes on my blog, is a reworking of old ideas.

Perhaps it was the lack of internet that meant I had time to focus on roasting the large head of cauliflower that had sat around for days of good intentions.  Or perhaps it was just that I was procrastinating.  Mere hours after finding the wifi had died, I took it to the computer shop, only to find there was no resuscitation.  I walked out of the shop with a new modem.  But when I got home it sat in the bag until I had time to deal with it that evening.

To be fair, by the time I came home with the modem, I didn't have time to focus on it.  Though it meant I couldn't do banking or look up phone numbers or download documents or blog and all the other things I no longer can do without being online.  And in retrospect I am glad I didn't try and hook up the modem.  I took quite a while in the quiet of the evening to look...

Vegan fudge cupcakes or what to do with failed fudge - Vegan MoFo Green Gourmet Giraffe

Today I bring you tales of searching supermarket aisles for vegan ingredients, of failed fudge experiments, of meddling with favourite recipes and of finding that cupcakes are an excellent place to hide failed fudge.

It started on Friday.  I was home a bit later than intended.  So I rang and asked Sylvia to make pizza dough to get dinner started.  It was lovely when I got home and she was in the kitchen with her friend and ordering me to sit and not worry about the dough.  I was never so independent in the kitchen at 9 years old!  Then she told me they were making grubs for the cake stall the next day.  I had plans for fudge that did not turn out as I had hoped so I was quite happy she had made sure we had a contribution.

I headed to the supermarket on Friday night for my fudge ingredients.  I did not think a tin of condensed coconut milk and a block of Whittakers dark ghana choolate was a big ask.  But seems it was the impossible task.  At home I found myself gently simmering home made coconut milk for over an hour.  When I got impatient and turned up the heat it split.  I tipped off the oil and salvaged it for my fudge recipe with dark chocolate with almonds in it.  The next morning the fudge was so soft...
