    I liked the vegan baked beans, a lot. Thank you

    One thing I did note is that your cooking time was 22 minutes…..may work for soaked beans but for dry beans it needs 40 minutes plus natural release to be softer.

    I will be using this recipe ongoing, it was really good.

      Thanks so much for making the recipe and for your feedback. I will adjust the recipe and tinker with it a bit more based on your suggestions. Thanks again!

    Hi there, I want to make your coq au vin recipe, and I see butter & flour on the ingredient list but not mentioned later… I assume it is to thicken the stew? Does it go in before the oven or afterwards?

    Hello from Homer Glen. I just pe-ordered your cookbook after reading about it in the local Patch. I’m the cook in the house & always looking for new recipes. I’m following a carb restricted diet (diabetic) and having great success lowering A1C numbers, losing weight. This is a question and suggestion. I haven’t read completely thru your blog yet but plan to soon. I don’t know if you have any low carb recipes or keto recipes available. Creating/adding a low carb recipe section would certainly draw more attention to your blog and/or cookbook. Folks following a low carb/keto diet are looking for nutritional breakdown (servings, calories, calories from fat, sodium, carbs, protein, etc) included with each recipe. Please give it some consideration. Take care and wishing you the best of success. Thank you

      Thanks for ordering the book and for your suggestions. I am not following the keto diet. I am not a registered dietitian so I do not feel totally comfortable dishing out nutritional information. I try to include a variety of vegan, dairy free, carb free, gluten free, low carb and even whole30 types of recipes on the site. Feel free to search through for any recipe that fits your dietary restrictions. Thanks for commenting.

    Your English muffin recipe calls for 2 tsp baking powder dissolved in 1 tbsp water — but I don’t see that it’s used…
    Please explain. Thank you so much!

      My mistake. You add in the mixture once the dough has risen. I will adjust the recipe.
