Oooooops! I meant to post the winner of my Xagave giveaway earlier today but time was consumed too quickly. Anyways, the winner is commenter #17, Claryn, from the Hell Yeah It’s Vegan blog. Congratulations! Here is what Claryn had to say about her favorite use for agave:
“I like to use agave nectar in candy — particularly macadamia caramel clusters (drizzled with dark chocolate), which I’ve blogged about before. Yum!”
There are so many wonderful recipes on Claryn’s blog – you should take a peek and see for yourself. I will contact you via e-mail Claryn so that we can arrange shipping of your prize!! And, for everybody else, if you are interested in purchasing some Xagave, head over to their website and you can get free shipping by typing TAHINITOO into the payment information page!! How grand is that?! Now we can all have a little extra sweetness in our lives. Big thanks to Robyn at BetterBody Foods & Nutrition for her generosity.
Oh, and speaking of sweetness, I have been busy testing recipes for Celine and Joni’s second (!!!!!) cookbook, The Complete Guide to Vegan Substitutions. Here is a photo of a delicious Cranberry Banana Cake that disappeared pretty quickly after Tim found it in the kitchen:
It’s like banana bread in cake form, studded with tart cranberries, walnuts, and white chocolate chips.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
