Frozen Chocolate Banana | ORIGINAL RECIPE

Vegan Chocolate

This Recipe Is All My Own, I Hope You'll Love It Just As Much As I Do! ^^

How To

The Bananas
Take However Many Bananas That You'd Like
(I Usually Go For One or Two Per Chocolate-Bar)
Peel Them, Cut Them Into Little Medallions, and Place Them On a Plate.

The Chocolate
Take The Chocolate, Break It Up Into Pieces, Place It In a Soup-Bowl.
Take a Boiler The Same Circumference As The Bowl, Fill It Half Full With Water.
Put The Bowl Of Chocolates On Top Of The Boiler, As If a Lid.
Set The Heat To High, And Let It Boil Until It's Hot,
And You See It's Hot Enough For The Chocolate To Start Melting. 
Use a Spoon To Fiddle With The Chocolates, To Check Their Melting-Progress. (NOT PLASTIC)

Use a Spoon To Collect and Pour The Chocolate On Top of The Medallions.
Once You've Achieved Desired Amount of Chocolate On Top Of Every Piece Of Banana.
Place The Dish In The Freezer.

Wait a Short While, Then You're Good To Go
Eat Directly Off of Your Plate

Moo-Free Ice-Cream | Trying New Recipes

Ingredients Used
Frozen Bananas
Vegan Chocolate
Frozen Strawberries

Banana Choc Yum
I've Had This Thing For a While, Where I Take Cold Bananas, And Cover It With Melted Chocolate, Then Freezing It. PURRFECT Dessert! ^^

This Dish Tasted a Little Bit Like That.
Not As Much As I'd Like. But It Resembled.

It Didn't Taste Like "Ice-Cream" At All.
It Tasted Like Smoothie. a Good Smoothie, Just Like The Stuff I Used To Buy At The Local Café.
But Still, Not Ice-Cream.

I Didn't Have Red Currants (Sadly, Cause I Am Such a Fan)
So I Decided To Make One Batch Of Chocolate Moo-Free Ice Cream, and One Of Strawberry.

I Must Say, Combining The Two, Was The Best.
And I Preferred It To Eating The Two Flavours Separately.

Applecider Waffles | Trying New Recipes

Ingredients Used

These Waffles (Well, Pancakes In My Case, As I Broke Our Waffle-Iron Way Back xD)

They Tasted EXACTLY Like The Best Café-Bought Waffles That I Used To Get As a Child! :D
I Think The Cardamom and Apple-Cider-Vinegar Did The Trick Flavourwise.
It Resulted In a Round, Perfectly Warming, Sweet Flavour. So Yummy! :D

Thai Noodle Dish | Trying New Recipes

Ingredients Used
Yellow Onion
Green Paprika Pepper
Fresh Ginger-Root

Too Peanut'y
For Me, This Dish Was Too Peanut'y In Flavour.
The Fact That The Sauce Turned Out To Be Very Dry, And a Bit Flavourless, Also Made It Just An Okay Dish, Not a New Fav.

When Making It, It Said That One Tablespoon of Chili-Oil Would Be Dangerously Close To Making It Too Hot For Some. I Gotta' Say, It Wasn't Hot at All. And I'm Sensitive To Spicy-Foods.
So If You're a BIG BIG Spicy-Fan, Go BANANAS With The Chili-Oil, When Making This Dish.
OR, Take My Mom's Advice Below, Post-Cooking! ;)

I Think This Dish Is Perfect For People Who Prefer Peanut-Flavours, 
And Who's Nit Too Big On Runny Sauces.

My Mom Thought This Dish Was Okay, And She Recommends To Add Plenty of Sesame-Oil, Soy-Sauce and Chili-Oil When Creating Your Portion. She Says This Made The Dish Fisty'er and More Savoury, and Resulted In a Rounder, Warmer Taste-Experience.

I Paired This Dish With The Explore Asian, Pad Thai Brown Rice Noodles
That I Received In My VeganCuts Snack Subscription Box a While Ago.

OMG!! :D
This Gish is a Taste-Bud Mind-Blowing Experience of EPIC Proportions! :D
It Was SO Good, I Had To Contain Myself Not To Over-Eat Myself Into an Equally Epic Tummy-Ache.
My Tummy Became Full WAAAAAY Before My Taste-Buds Did, Lets Just Put It Like That. xD
I'm Going To Be Making DOUBLE Portions Next Time, And Maybe Even TRIPLE, It Was So Savoury, and I Just Coldn't Get Enough! :D

I Didn't Have Fresh Rosemary, But It Turned Out Great Anyways! ^^

Boil This Dish For Over the Suggested 30 Minute Minimum,

If You Choose To Cook The "Meat"-Balls In The Oven;
Make Them Small, Or You'll Have To Cook Them Twice As Long or Even More,
Than The Recipe Says.

Extra Creamy Vegan Pasta | Trying New Recipes

Ingredients Used:

This Dish Was Not For Me.
So Much So, That I Felt a Little Bit Sickened/Nauseous At The Flavour.
Which Was Such a Bummer, Seeing as I'm a HUGE Fan Of Cauliflower,
Have Been Ever Since I Was a Child.
But No.... It Just Didn't Do It For Me. :(
It Was Too Fat Dairy-Milk Resembling In Flavour.
Which I've Never Been a Fan Of.

Other Than That, It Was a Very Easy and Quick Dish To Make,
Very Little Prep, Very Short Cooking-Time.
I Think It Would Be Great For Anyone In a Hurry
/Who Don't Like Over-Doing It Time-Wise When Cooking.

My Mom Absolutely Adored This Dish, 
So At Least It Won't Go To Waste.
