It's Foodie Friday! Foodie Friday is my weekly feature that gives you a window into my kitchen. I love to cook, I love to eat, I love to read cookbooks, and I love to inspire people to give vegan food a chance. Thus, Foodie Friday was whipped up and baked to perfection.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, a dish doesn't turn out looking pretty. Such was the case with the Wild West pasta bake from 1,000 Vegan Recipes. See for yourself:
The cookbook is all text--no pictures--so I never know what the recipe is intended to look like. That is both good and bad. Good, because I don't have to try to live up to some impossible studio-taken, gussied up photographic presentation. Bad, because some recipes you really ought to see before you jump right into making them. In the case of the Wild West pasta bake, I don't think any food stylist could have made this look good, because it isn't good. Actually, it was kind of gross.
This one, on the other hand, came out looking lovely:
The rest of my noms are from 1,000 Vegan Recipes:
Maybe I'll have better food luck next week.
P.S. Happy birthday to my brother-in-law to be!
