Crispy Orange Soy Curls

When nothing else seems palatable? Chinese Food!
Here is Chris's Tangerine Seitan but with a big ol' juicy navel orange and Soy Curls instead of seitan over brown rice. This recipe is soooo easy and fun to trade out tangerine for orange or lemon. Good stuff.

And speaking of good stuff, is there ever a bad time to make Dreena's Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies from Vive to make one feel better? I say nope! I add a 1/2 tsp of almond extract along with the vanilla for a super tasty version. Good thing that the recipe only makes 8-10 or my tummy'd be aching due to overindulgence for sure!

Sorry that pic stinks. That's what happens when you've waited for them to cool enough to eat them and you just can't wait any longer! (and by 'you', I mean me!)

mmm, I love Asian dishes - so full of flavor!!

There's never a bad time for some of Dreena's homestyle chocolate chip cookies (carob chips for me though!) - I'm glad you're still able to cook and bake delicious foods, and am hoping that your taste aversions that you mentioned before will clear up! :0)

What are soy curls exactly? Do you make them or buy them? The cookies look fantastic and would you believe I've never made them before? I've been trying to keep sugar out of the house (and therefore, out of my stomach), but with family coming for a visit next week, I really want to wow them with great vegan food. These cookies seem like the way to go - have you ever made them and then freezed them? If so, do they taste ok after they've been thawed? I'm trying to do all my baking this week so I can just pull things out as we go. Ok, I'll stop blathering on - hope you're feeling better soon!
