My husband doesn't know I write this blog.
But as a prosciutto-eating, cheese-loving,
gelato-worshipping Italian, he has been surprisingly enamored with my vegan cooking.
Because I don't tell him it's vegan.
I just tell him it's dinner.
And then smile quietly to myself
as I watch him fare la scarpetta.
So let's keep this to ourselves, shall we?
My blog is 100% Vegan...but I am not.
At the risk of offending some - and apparently I have! - I disclose that solely to give credence to this claim: unless otherwise noted, everything you find here has been successfully taste-tested on (and thoroughly enjoyed by) a kitchen full of hard-core omnivores. And I don't mean those who used to love meat until they saw "the vegan light bulb." I'm talking about those who still salivate rabidly at the thought of a bacon-wrapped steak or chorizo-stuffed dates and find anything made without butter or cheese practically inedible. Talk about a tough crowd...
I'm trying to steer our menu rotation in the more-vegan-than-not direction, but it's definitely challenging to find or create recipes that will stand up to the most discriminating omnivorous palates - mine included. In the process, many, many vegan recipes that looked more promising than they actually tasted have gone by the wayside, uneaten and thus, unpublished. I know they're out there and I'm now on a mission to find more, so this is where I share them with anyone who wants a taste.
I have an insatiable addiction to avocados.
And I just had to tell someone...
