Vegan Marshmallows!

I want to die a delicious death where I'm smothered in these vegan marshmallows. I must be the last person to find out, but these marshmallows come from and awesome company called Dandies. I have been, thus far, so dissatisfied with my vegan marshmallow experiences. They always have a weird texture, or are way too sugary, or are sometimes brown (which I guess matters to me more than it should). But the most awesome thing about Dandies marshmallows is that they are sweetened with Beet sugar. This means so much to those of use who try to stay away from white sugars (which aren't really vegan) and who try to avoid evaporated cane juice.

Here's the ingredient listing:
Vanilla Dandies Vegan Marshmallows Ingredients:
Corn Syrup, Vegan Beet Sugar, Corn Starch, Corn Dextrose, Water, Carrageenan, Soy Protein, Natural Vanilla Flavor

Dandies claims that Rice Krispie treats come out exactly as if you were using evil marshmallows (obviously, not vegan).

So exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I recently discovered these on an awesome blog, Vegan Eats & Treats, when Amey posted about making S'mores. I can't wait to make my own! Thank you, Amey.

I'm back and with Biscuits.

What?! It's only been about 4 months since my last post. Alright, I promise. I'm trying to be a lot better about doing this consistently. I promise!

I have to post about these awesome biscuits I've been baking. They come from
Vegan with a Vengeance, an awesome vegan cookbook. They're baking soda biscuits.
The recipe is soooo easy, that's why I love them. Anything that's easy to make I'll do over and over again. The best part is that you can modify them to whatever flavor you enjoy. I wanted a savory biscuit, so I added fresh rosemary and dried oregano, sage, and thyme. It was a freaking Scarborough Fair biscuit. They go so well with soups and chilis. I paired them with white bean patties that also came from VWAV.

So yummy!
