Vegan Brie

In my vegetarian days I always enjoyed a good brie.  Since then I have wanted to try my hand at making one.  I started with the recipe from The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak and adapted it and changed it to suite my own tastes.  I also wanted to make a brie that was hot and inside a pastry.  The afore mentioned is a cold brie so I had to change it quite a bit.  This is a very easy recipe, although it is a little time consuming.  The "cheese" has to set for at least 4 hours and...

Super Easy Kale Chips

Seitan – and I don’t mean the guy with horns
