Ladies and Gentlemen,

I present to you: The PPK Pumpkin Pie. The PPKPP, so to speak.

I want to make it now. Same as these incredibly good-looking white choc-chip macadamia cookies, these marvelous pumpkin cupcakes, the chocolate pumpkin loaf and so many others. Vegan Mofo just brought all these amazing baked good recipes to the light, and I’d love to try them all out Speaking of which, I’ve also been eyeing these vegan gingerbread cookies.

Problem: who’s gonna eat all this stuff?

I certainly couldn’t shouldn’t eat that number of muffins, cupcakes and other sugary things every week. I have fed my housemates a lot, but I don’t want to have to force-feed them if it’s too much. I would love to just bake a ton and then donate it to bake sales all the time, but where to find out about bake sales? Food banks are also an option I guess, but I’d feel like I was acting naiive; bringing there fancy pies when maybe they just could have done better with some vegetables and fruit, or even the plain ingredients to bake something themselves.

Strange dilemma, I know. But still: What do you do with excess baked goods? Do you ever bake just for the heck of it, not for actually having the final product?

Now, don’t get me wrong here. Baking some juicy chocolate brownies and them just staring at them for their aesthetic worth is not my favourite thing to do. I love to actually try my creations, and eat yummy things (who doesn’t?). Still, I would love to find a use for them, other just for the joy of baking (and of course showing pictures on this blog).

Please help me out here. There must be someone out there in need of vegan pies.

Oh, Pie

One of my coworkers is holding a bake sale for an Alzheimer’s Foundation tomorrow.

Of course, I happily agreed to bake something.

And this is not just some pie, it is a heavenly, heavenly creature.
Always on the lookout for new opportunities to try recipes from Veganomicon, I chose this one.
My recent obsession with chocolate & peanut butter combos lead me to this recipe:

Smlove Pie.

If you want to follow along, find the recipe on the Vegan Superheroblog or on Mad Vegan in the Kitchen.

Check out the pictures.

Pie..

Oh glorious Pie

Leftovers were utilized and turned into mini pies for the house mates 🙂
They couldn’t believe that these were vegan!

Pretty damn sure this is gonna sell well at the bake sale.

Have a good Monday night!

One problem I have found is that it seems hard to find somewhere in town to buy quick, ready-made lunch in town. None of Tesco’s lunch deals are vegan – the few vegetarian sandwiches and pies all contain either egg, cheese or mayonnaise.

In an attempt to still get lunch which does not consist of a plain piece of fruit or bread, I went into the WholeFood store and bought this:

“Pie with fresh marinated vegetables in a jerky style sauce”
That sounds great – really does not live up to the expectations though. I guess heating it up would have helped, but due to the lack of a microwave it was just not.. so great. The picture pretty much sums it up:

Eurgh. I guess for now bringing home-made lunches or going back home for lunch is the easiest alternative. There are some clever websites like VeganLunchBox that should give some hints.
