Vegan MoFo - I've Been Outed, the Chocolate e-Cookbook Is Imminent!

Well, I've been outed. I've been secretly working on a soy-free, all chocolate e-cookbook for way too long, and yesterday Becks publicly *poked* me about it, so now I have to stop procrastinating and finish it up! Becks consulted with me before she outed me though, don't think she did it out of rudeness! :)

Want a sneak peek?

Whaddyathink? Look good? All recipes are free of margarine, not because I have something against it, but because I know soy-free margarine is hard to find for some of you. Hmmm. Now I feel terrible that I'm showing you pictures of my goodies but not sharing any recipes. Can I make it up to you with some of my previous soy-free chocolate recipes?

Well, there it is. Now that it's out in the open I'm going to have to start working hard. No more procrastination! Starting tomorrow...

Question for the soy-free peeps: Is it difficult for you find soy-free chocolate chips and baking bars? I'm talking about that pesky soy-lecithin stuff that they add to everything.

  5. It is amazing! No wonder Becks made it since the Not a Rabbit blog is out of this world! Your blog is beautiful, too. All the fascinating ideas, recipes, pictures and design. I got a Halloween inspiration from your blog :-)

  12. Your treats all look amazing! Saw your question about the soy-free chocolate, and yes, it's tough to find soy-free chocolate chips (Enjoy Life makes some though and I also like to buy a bar of really good chocolate and then break it into chunks), but baking bars are usually soy-free. Keep us posted on your book!

  26. Yay for your e-book! I knew your mousse would be in it and I still have not made it (bad Mandee!)

    Yes, it is SO difficult to find soy free chocolate :( Plamil do make some, I think one of their bars uses sunflower lecithin instead of soy.
