OK, seriously...

Has it really been that long??? October 8th since last post??? OK, seriously, I'm gonna get on it. We've been so busy...and making so many great things at the shop. Did you get a chance to have our Sweet Potato Pie with Brown Sugar Meringue topping? Ridiculous! We also did an awesome Vegan Maple Pecan Pie. Insane.

Just so you know, I kept seeing all these vegan pecan pie recipes with agar agar and soy milk and expensive mystery ingredient 8000, but they are all so unnecessary. A little arrowroot powder (way less expensive than agar-agar) does the trick just fine. Use any "regular" pecan pie recipe you find, substitute 1 Tbsp flax meal PLUS 1 Tbsp of water for each egg called for in the "regular" recipe, add 2 Tbsp arrowroot powder, mix and bake as normal (you may have to increase baking time slightly) and there you have it: Vegan Pecan Pie. It's really that go for it!

I truly love what I do.

grace & peace,
