More Soup! And a VCIYCJ Giveaway from Perseus Books

Ecch, sorry for the bad nighttime photograph! This is a bad photo of a batch of delicious curried carrot soup, a recipe I found in Joanna Vaught's Yellow Rose Recipes. The soup is very rich, so I added in lots of lemon to brighten it, and was happy. There's an optional cilantro garnish that I didn't use, and I am sure that would be a good taste-brightener as well. Anyway, if you have been considering purchasing YRR, now is the time to do so, because copies are dwindling fast. I hear there is an amazing green beans recipe in here, and I hear rave reviews about the sloppy Joannas and the mustard-crusted seitan at the PPK.

  3. I just made Mom's Lentil Soup from YRR. It was amazing! I was eying the carrot curry soup the whole time, though ... that might be my next one!

  4. The soup sounds like the perfect winter soup. :) I think my favorite cookies are gingerbread (more the dough than the cookies ;)) - and vegan chocolate chip cookies.

  5. Veganizing the original toll house recipe is my favorite for now althouth I've heard tantalizing rumors about the samoas in this book!

  6. I love chocolate chip cookies. I could eat about 100 of them if I let myself. I would love to win this book though so I can give it to my coworker. Her 6 year old daughter recently discovered the horrors of factory farmed eggs and won't eat them anymore.

  11. Oh man! I like cooking with a lot going on, like chocolate cookies with peanut butter filling! But one of my favorites that I managed to veganize after lots of work were rainbow cookies! Mmm. I've been eying this book for ages!

  18. I've only ever had one cookie jar.
    It had a glass base with a wood lid. When I was younger, I put the lid in the dishwater and it never quite fit correctly after that!

    I love oatmeal raisin cookies!

  19. Eee! I've been wanting this book for ages. I remember that my grandparents always used to have this thin, spic-flavored, almond-filled windmill cookies at their house. I wasn't super keen on the flavor, but I loved that they were shaped like windmills!

    P.S. The soup still looks good, despite the nighttime photo! :D
