Sweet Freedom

I have a couple more test recipes to show you from the splendid Ricki's upcoming Sweet Freedom cookbook.



This is a delicious Chocolate-Covered Caramel (Ricki posted about these here with a much more attractive photo).



Behold, a bowl of pineapple pieces topped with a dollop of Ricki's incredible Soy-Free, Sugar-Free Coconut Whipped "Cream." It took all the restraint I had to not eat every last bit of this whipped cream with a spoon!

By the way, Ricki's been nominated for a Best Food Blog Award in the Writing category over on the Well Fed Network. Voting is already closed, so keep your fingers crossed for her to win! Also, she's holding a contest for vegan goodies. Follow this link to enter.

Oh those Ricki Recipes! She is really the "sweetest" there is, and you really did rock the restraint, because that stuff is trop, trop bon!

Thanks for the shout out! Your caramels looks fabulous!! So glad you liked them and the cream, too. :)
Oh, and sorry to say that the winners have been announced and I didn't win--but it sure was fun to be part of it all. But I'll cross my fingers for you re: the contest on my blog!

Tough job being a tester for Ricki, huh? :-) Those caramels look awesome and so does the whipped cream!

Thanks :) The seitan actually comes out even better when I break it up into smaller pieces.
PS check your e-mail, lady.
