Vegan Desserts ... or not ...

Tonight I took Cathy to karate. While there, I alternated between reading through a vegan baking book and ogling the hot guest instructor (who may be approximately my age and may even be single). He'll be gone next week and back the following week, so I'll be ogling again on that Tuesday... I wonder if I can lose 10 pounds in 12 days? ...

Now, I raised my kids vegetarian, but I'm being dragged kicking and screaming toward this vegan thing. Maryanne has already pronounced herself vegan, and Cathy is well on her way. I finally mastered vegetarian gluten-free cooking and baking... now I have to make it vegan, too???

Anyway, so I was looking through this book on vegan baking for ideas. Like how to replace eggs when baking chocolate chip cookies. And butter.

Then I came across this great four-ingredient recipe for chocolate mousse, relying heavily on tofu.

In the car on the way home, I enthused to Cathy about this recipe.

“We can make vegan chocolate mousse!” I declared.

“Chocolate moose?” she responded. “In what universe is chocolate moose vegan???”
