First off, the blog has a new look!! Matt and I (mostly Matt) made the custom header you see above. Walking the Vegan Line and Vegan Dad both have cool new headers, so I decided it was time for Julie’s Kind Kitchen to have one too. The header may be changed a little in the future or not. I am not sure. What do you think?
Next, I made my first loaf of homemade bread! Wee. This is just one of the cooking projects I’ve listed here. I couldn’t find the soy milk powder this bread machine recipe calls for, so I just went with the Oatmeal Bread recipe on the back of the King Arthur bread flour bag. I like it a lot, but it came out really dense. Meaning it’s great by itself heated up with butter, but too dense for any kind of sandwich. Does anyone have a recipe for a lighter bread? Also, I would like for my next loaf to be whole wheat. I have a bread machine that Matt’s mom gave me, so it can be a bread machine recipe or not. I really want to keep making bread because not only is it fun ( I like to knead!), but it’s also so much cheaper than buying bread at the store.
Next up, Galaxy Foods sent us some free samples! So far I’ve only tried the hummus and I must say it’s really freaking good. I love the non-oily taste and little red pepper chunks sprinkled throughout. Plus, it’s organic. That’s good, right?
I am not to sure what I want to make with the vegan cheese. Suggestions? The block is Cheddar and the slices are Mozzarella and Pepper Jack.
Here’s a lil’ bit of that Galaxy hummus on a plate with pita and Dreena’s Quinoa Spring Salad. This is a recipe I have been meaning to try fore-v-e-r and never got around to it. I am glad I finally did, it’s so light and fresh tasting. What a perfect snack!
Can you guess which book is open in the background? Yup, it’s Veganomicon. I have some leftover quinoa and I think I am going to make the Quinoa Almond Muffins. Quinoa in a muffin? I’ll let you know how they turn out.
Finally, my Mom is reading the blog now…HI MOM!!
