One of my 40 before 40 goals is to create a cookbook of my favorite 40 vegan recipes.  I am not going to invent 40 new recipes, but capture my favorite recipes modified to be vegan or my favorite recipes from vegan cookbooks.  And I am going to make each recipe three times the same way to make sure it is right – and not take lazy shortcuts in the name of “creativity”.

One of my first challenges will be cream of mushroom soup.  Being white and from the midwest, some of my favorite recipes use this pantry staple.  I have a bead on a white mushroom sauce recipe that I recently found.

And there will be lots of potato recipes.  Here is my planned list:

1. “Chicken” in pastry

2. “Chicken” crepes

3. “Beef” Stroganoff – my favorite food ever

4. Fourth of July Chocolate Cake

5. Snickerdoodle Bars

6. Comfort Casserole

7. Bangin’ Breakfast Sammie

8. Banana Splitted and Cherried and Chocolated Bread

25. Spankin’ Spring Salad

26. Stupid Summer Salad
