I'm not even a huge fan of coconut cake, but this looked so fabulous, I thought I'd share this ...

I'm curious, Pamela-- did you warm it up when you got there, or serve it cold? Sounds worth a try!

I brought Vegan Basmati Rice Dinner to a party last night: in a 3 qt. saucepan put 1 box of frozen peas in 6 c. water with 1 can of Chick Peas, 1 tsp. Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Base, 1 finely minced carrot and 1/2 finely minced onion; then rinse in a colander 3 c. Basmati Rice and add to the water with 1 tsp. each Curry Powder, Cumin, Coriander, Cayenne, Turmeric and Seasoned Salt.  Simmer all together for 25 minutes. Cool and containerize and make a sensation at a potluck. (Everybody liked mine.)

Did you know you can use tofu straight out of the store? I can have 8 oz. of raw tofu on my food program, and I like abundance, so I'd rather use that than 4 oz. of cooked tofu. For me, great-tasting tofu only takes 3 seasonings: garlic, tamari, and House of Tsang Hot Chili Sesame Sauce. The tamari and chilies add salt and pepper flavors and the sesame adds a wonderful piquancy. I have a salad alongside with a creamy dressing like Ranch or Caesar and it takes off a bit of the heat from the chilies. A yummy vegan summer meal.

We had grilled salmon fillet the other day for dinner and it was delicious. First, I purchased a full fillet of atlantic salmon with the skin on. I whisked the zest and juice of 1/2 lemon combined with 1 tablespoon of orange marmalade, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper and salt to taste. Then I thinly sliced 1/2 a medium sized yellow onion and tossed this in the mixture then layered it along the length of the flesh side of the fillet and then poured the marinade over the whole piece. marinade for 15 to 20 minutes while you prepare the grill. Place skin side down on a preheated low grill for about 15 minutes until large flakes separated when checked for doneness. Don't worry if the skin sticks to the grill, just slide the meat onto a plate and enjoy. It really was the tastiest salmon I've had in a long time.
