These chocolate chunk cookies certainly weren't a disappointment . The chunks of chocolate make a change from chocolate chips & I actually really liked the orange flavour. These cookies reminded me of a Chocolate Orange, y'know that non-vegan ball of orange flavoured chocolate segments? They made me think of christmas because chocolate oranges were the gift of choice between my friends & I at school!
Next out of the hat was Veganomicon & the generator chose me page 109, Lemony Roasted Potatoes which I served with the next recipe outa the hat, the Firestorm Falaf-hell from Please Don't Feed The Bears.
The potatoes were amazing! I think I might've chopped them too large or something though because these took around 2 hours to cook rather than the 55 min's the recipe suggested! The potatoes actually went perfectly with the baked falaf-hell but only because these aren't really falafel, not as I know them anyway. They didn't contain any parsley, cumin or coriander and were more like a lemony chickpea burger. They were delicious but I think I'll stick to the baked falafel recipe in AFR next time I want something to stuff in my pita pocket!
That should have been the end of the challenge for today but as I have a tattoo appointment tomorrow I decided to make one of the recipes meant for tomorrow today. I know that I'll be too wiped to make three recipes, including TWO more cookie recipes tomorrow...seriously this recipe generator is biased, either that or I have too many baking books?! Anyway, as it came out first I baked the Black & Whites from Hannah Kaminsky's first cookbook My Sweet Vegan. These NYC inspired cookies are massive & iced with both white & chocolate icing, hence the name.
These soft cookies were fantastic, seriously, I think that they're what dreams are made of! They're perfect. I love My Sweet Vegan but I don't turn to it that often because the recipes do often use quite expensive ingredients (this one had margarine, a lot of icing sugar and sour cream) and the recipes can often be quite time consuming. That said everything I've ever made from this cookbook has been completely worth the time & cost, one of my favourite recipes ever is the Silken Chocolate Mousse Cake & I'll definitely be making these cookies again.
