VeganMoFo: Blondies and Brownies
Hannah Kaminsky is hands-down one of the most innovative, creative, and accurate baking cookbook authors I've encountered. Her recipes can turn something as seemingly simple as a blondie or brownie into a complex, uniquely flavorful and textural dessert suitable for any occasion. She first shared her extraordinary talent with us through her blog, Bittersweet, followed by her cookbook, My Sweet Vegan, and numerous e-cookbooks on a variety of sweet subjects. Her newest e-cookbook, Blondies and Brownies, is unparalleled.
Boasting twelve recipes (six blondies and six brownies) for a mere $5, this e-cookbook is worth every penny. I realize that sentence makes me sound like I'm Hannah's PR agent, but it's really just that I believe in Hannah and I believe in supporting our vegan community. I've found myself relying on Blondies and Brownies when I am baking for a potluck or a bake sale or just when I'm in the mood to bake. In fact, it would provide perfect last-minute recipes to whip up for your Thanksgiving feast tonight! Check out the Turkish Delight Blondies I baked this summer; they were easy to make, used ingredients I already had in my pantry, and were a huge crowd-pleaser.
