Thanksgiving may be over, but I'm still cooking more than ever before. I have a mteric assload of vegetables to shred without a food processor tonight (I'm making the Autumn Latkes from Veganomicon), so instead of taking time to upload pictures and write real things, I give you the Food Snobbery survey (and apologies for not writing anything yesterday; when the sun sets early and I'm cooking all day, there's no time to blog before the sabbath!).
1. Favorite non-dairy milk?
I never drank milk, so I haven't really tried many non-dairy milks. Most recipes I make call for soy milk and Silk is the easiest to find, so I usually get that, so I guess that's my answer.
2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to cook?
a - Autumn Latkes
b - Mac Daddy, also from Veganomicon
c - I think it's time for jerky, AKA left over tofu + an experimental marinade + my dehydrator = an accident waiting to happen.
3. Topping of choice for popcorn?
I like it plain.
4. Most disastrous recipe/meal failure?
I haven't had any serious disasters yet, unless you count things that are ready about six hours after I expect them to be. The thing that's come out the worst so far would probably be the VWAV matzo balls, though.
5. Favorite pickled item?
Cucumbers! (Yes, I'm boring)
6. How do you organize your recipes?
An email draft full of links.
7. Compost, trash, or garbage disposal?
8. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 foods…what would they be (don’t worry about how you’ll cook them)?
Jerquee, bread and....something sweet. Cupcakes? Cupcakes.
9. Fondest food memory from your childhood?
Finally getting to order food for myself at a fancy restaurant. I wanted fettucini alfredo and asked for "fettucini al-scaredo" (alfredo sounds like afraido in Brooklynese).
10. Favorite vegan ice cream?
I've only had Tofutti. It's OK.
11. Most loved kitchen appliance?
Blender. Makes me think I maybe don't need a food processor.
12. Spice/herb you would die without?
13. Cookbook you have owned for the longest time?
Jewish Vegetarian Cooking by Rose Friedman. Have never used it.
14. Favorite flavor of jam/jelly?
Strawberry, I think.
15. Favorite vegan recipe to serve to an omni friend?
Tofu Pumpkin Pie.
16. Seitan, tofu, or tempeh?
Tofu. I still haven't tried to cook seitan (which is stupid since it's in my blog name, I know. Sorry).
17. Favorite meal to cook (or time of day to cook)?
18. What is sitting on top of your refrigerator?
Asparagus and onions.
19. Name 3 items in your freezer without looking.
A tofurkey, leftover VWAV vegetable broth and leftover Tomato-Rice Soup with Roasted Garlic and Navy Beans from Veganomicon.
20. What’s on your grocery list?
Tumeric, black cocoa powder, soy milk powder and golden raisins.
21. Favorite grocery store?
Sunac in Williamsburg.
22. Name a recipe you’d love to veganize, but haven’t yet.
After reading this, egg rolls.
23. Food blog you read the most (besides Isa’s because I know you check it everyday). Or maybe the top 3?
I kind of go with ones with easy to remember names, so I check Fat Free Vegan, Vegan Chicks Rock and VeganYumYum nearly (and sometimes more than) daily.
24. Favorite vegan candy/chocolate?
25. Most extravagant food item purchased lately?
McClure's pickles. $12 for a jar of pickles! I will use everything in that jar (and the jar itself), I swears it!
26. How did you get so pretty?
That's how my mommy and daddy made me! (Note: that's the actual answer I used to give when I was little and people asked me how I got so smart).
