I also made a seitan "turkey" loaf with the Mustard Sauce from Veganomicon, but it was not particularly gorgeous and I left it unphotographed. Of course, we have been living solely off of leftovers for the past day or so. Pumpkin Pie Milkshake, anyone? That was my balanced breakfast this morning...

Bat Boy: The Musical (the segment starts on the video at about 2:40 left) closed last Saturday. I worked the show as assistant stage manager, so my life had revolved around it for the last couple months. Over the course of the run, I brought plenty sweets for the cast to share, but it didn't even cross my mind to snap any shots. ...I'm just glad it's done.
But let's get to the real meat (so to speak) of things. I'm incredibly fortunate enough to be one of Hannah's testers for her latest cookbook, and we've already been put to work on two recipes. The latest is a Cherry Macaroon Tart.
Oh, Cherry Macaroon Tart. It's not such a secret that I'm infatuated with you. I've made you twice already. How many eyes have seen me sneak into the kitchen time and time again to steal bites of you? Perhaps it's a bit much to presume, but I think that you feel the same way. After all, you come together so easily for me - how can we not make the perfect match?
Alright, enough lusting. But it's true - I've made this twice. Sort of. My first go was a bastarized version to bring to an
Obama Day! Election Day party made with a modified crust. I red-white-and-blued it up by replacing most of the cherries with frozen blueberries and raspberries. This was mostly because upon receiving the recipe, I only had a few ounces of Trader Joe's cherries in the freezer and was dead-set on bringing this SUPREMELY QUICK AND EASY treat to the party. I made it a second time entirely against my will for the sole purpose of using Hannah's determined ingredients. It wasn't at all because those selfish Democratic bastards left me no leftovers to take home and eat later. No. Not at all.
