Unfortunately, I do not have a pic of the soup. It consisted of kidney beans, carrots, potatoes, peas, green beans, onions, corn and tomatoes. It was perfect for the weather we are experiencing. Yesterday we went from the mid-70's to the 40's. It was snowing this morning.
My baby was the pie. I made Bryanna Clark Grogan's tofu-less pumpkin pie this year. Last year I made a tofu based one. Guess which one tasted the best...yeah, NOT the tofu one. Last year was my first experience with a tofu-based pie. I definitely picked up on the soybean aftertaste. This year was a taste success. The pie was creamy and not too spicy. I used 3 Tbsp of cornstarch and I did cut back a bit on the spices after reading other's opinions. It firmed up nicely after sitting all night.Yes, I was too lazy to make my own crust. It was very late, and I was very tired. Sue me.
Freshly cut. Radiating yumminess. Pure, vegan yumminess. Eat that, omnis. I think I am going to make another one of these for the December birthday party at work.

Though, this batch did come out somewhat fuller, thicker. Whatevs, they were good.
Their beauty is blinding. Okay, so it's the oven light.

And a top shot because I love how bread cracks on top:
And another just because:
Lastly, I have read and re-read my Veganomicon, every time finding something else that I am dying to make. This is my habit with every cookbook I buy now:
Look real close. See all the little pink pieces of paper at the top? I don't have the heart to defile a cookbook buy folding the corners down, so I stick post-it's on the pages with recipes I want to make.

There they are in the pan, after the initial massacre straight out of the oven. It was beautiful.
Here they are close-up, in all their fudgey glory. The recipe was based on the sour cream cookies I made a couple of months ago. I used an Endangered Species chocolate bar and threw in some walnuts, and of course used Tofutti Better than Sour Cream. They're dreamy.
