Got my new cookbooks VWAV and VCTOTW...

and I have to know where to start, which is good and what I just *must* try first. 

Vice Cream is on its way or I'd start there...

Oooooh, I just made "your basic chocolate cupcakes" yesterday. I make mine with extra dark cocoa and they are SO good!  :D They remind me of the devil's food cake my mom used to make! Happy Eating! You really can't go wrong with any of the recipes though! I have a Vice Cream book, but haven't used it yet. Please share your results once you've tried some of the recipes.

i'm about to make the chickpea and broccoli casserole from vwav. I haven't tried it yet, but i've made the baked tofu recipes and they were REALLLL good. Made me see tofu in a different way, I make it a lot more now. All the sweets in vwav are good, especially the ginger sparkle cookies and the ginger-macadamia nut-carrot cake. I like ginger.

as for vctotw - two words - tiramisu cupcakes.

I really like the stewed tofu and potatoes in miso gravy.  And my omni husband ate my leftovers, too.  Here:  http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=16351.0

ohh, i hate it when that happens! you have some tasty vegan leftovers and someone eats them! this happens at my mom's house when i visit all the time. my sister eats my vegan food (covered in cheese, of course) and leaves the fleshfoods in the fridge.

Yep.  I'll make some perfect mexican rice and beans.  The leftovers get eaten in a tortilla with a TON of freakin' cheese.  That's just not right.

I just made (and pre-tasted  ;D ) the Mexican Chocolate Rice Pudding and it is outstanding.  I also just assembled a lasagna with her Tofu Ricotta. 

The corn fritters are good, too if you like that sort of thing  ;)

I've had the book about 2 weeks and I keep thumbing through it, getting inspired.

speaking of pudding, the chocolate pudding in there is also very good! use cornstarch though, not arrowroot, if you want a nice soft pudding and not a "rubbery" one  >:(

seems like i should be makin' some pudding now. oh well!!

There are sooo many tasty recipes in both books!  A couple days ago I made Isa Pizza (p. 131) from VWAV.  (I made it a little easier by using a flat ciabbata bread that I sliced for the crust.  I left out the mushrooms just because I didn't have any.  I also used a jarred pizza sauce from TJs.)  The combo of the pesto, ricotta, and kalamata olives is fantastic!  I also love the Brooklyn Pad Thai (p. 180) and The Best Pumpkin Muffins (p. 52).  As far as her cupcake book, I seriously doubt there are any bad ones.  All of the cupcakes I've tried have been delicious!
