Friday Giveaway Mania!

by IsaChandra

 

Thanks for participating! All 1000 plus of you. I included both entrants here and on the PPK 100 post and came up with 4 winners. Winners, I will be contacting you shortly. And the winners are…

Willow who said
“I absolutely need to start making “broth bags” (#11). I always over think making broth, and end up buying because it’s just easier, but this might just make my life easier.
Broth in the crockpot? perfect right? You just throw it in there and forget about it.
;o)
The Quinoa sushi is also on my list…”

Willow will also get the $100 donation to the kitty charity of her choice.

Sarah Cowett who said
“I think I could make a vegan meal from your list. For the main course, my family and I love tacos, and I would definitely love to try out the lentil taco meat. Also, although the thought of green smoothies is unappetizing to me, one that tasted like Skittles might make me change my mind! Finally for dessert, the Obsessive Confection Disorder caramels look insanely gorgeous.”

Bonnie who said
“Make your own mixes was genius for me. Being a mom of four this makes a quick grab and eat kind of deal. Hope I win!!!
Love all you do,
Bonnie”

And lastly…
matthew who said
I really want to have at the vegusto cheeses!

Congrats, all!

    I just recently tried chia seeds for the first time, and i LOVE them! they are so small and magical – great as a thickener, and full of healthy nutrients!! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:04 pm: Gayle P

    I LOVE Massaged Kale Salads. Everyone should try it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:04 pm: Marisa

    BBQ soy curls, quinoa sushi, vegan Cadbury eggs, and doughnuts. That is just what I want to try/do off the top of my head!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:05 pm: Kristen

    I cannot wait to try Vegusto cheeses. Where can I get me some of that!?

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:06 pm: Myles

    The vegan big mac at Doomies in LA is incredible! I’ve had it twice so far and will order it at any opportunity! So good!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:06 pm: Karen

    I just found out there’s a local tempeh maker, so this year I’m going to find where I can buy her stuff and GO CRAZY with it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:06 pm: Slogsdon

    I know I’m looking forward to some vegan cheesecake :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:06 pm: Gretchen

    I’m still trying to find Speculoos somewhere near me!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm: Kim

    I just made the caulipots for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I adored them! I’ll be making them again soon.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm: Ryan H.

    I made the massage kale salad for myself and some friends. EVERYONE loved it!! Also I can’t wait to turn my growing bag of scraps into my own veggie broth!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm: Devon

    caulipots have changed my life. true story!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm: ian miller

    I love the Viva Vegan steamed seitan, and I *STILL* haven’t tried FFL Queso! I am a horrible vegan. :(

    And I also just DLed the GoVegan! app. THANKS!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Sharla

    i haven’t had cheesecake since going vegan, it’s definitely my #1 thing i want to try!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Dana DeMaster

    mmmmm…..beet burgers. I never thought ‘beet burgers’ and ‘anticipation’ would go together, but there you are

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Wendy Watson

    I tried soaked cashews for a couple of your recipes! I also love Pinterest.
    Can’t wait for the snow to melt for us to try grilled Kale.
    Thanks!!
    Wendy

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Jackie

    I want to try “Food for Lovers Queso”. We’re big on vegan nachos and tacos in my house and always love trying out new cheese sauces and recipes for them.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Lorelei

    I will definitely be getting one of these this year: http://www.tofuxpress.com/ Partner and I are going to start making tofu at home, and I know we’ll need this!

    Thanks for doing a giveaway!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Laura

    I am looking forward to trying out coconut flour this year, especially since it is gluten-free. Bonus twinkie flavor activated!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm: Sara

    I actually tried veggie dogs for the first time this last week and I’m sold!! :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: sophia

    I tired the marinated tofu sandwich and it was delicious!!! I also really want to make the chickpea flour tofu but it looks a little complicated – maybe if we finally get a snow day!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: amanda

    falafel.nachos. i think we’re making them for our non-superbowl party, actually!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Jeanette E.

    My hands down favorite dish is the caramelized onion and pumpkin ziti from Veganomicon! Also, the dill horseradish hummus from AFR, which is not something I thought I would like, I now eat for lunch almost every day. And I would LOVE to try to make some vegan pies (hint, hint!) :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Laura Beth

    There are so many things on the list I want to try, such as the Vegan Cadbury Eggs, the avocado masher, Vegusto Cheese, and the Falafel Nachos. I can’t wait to get started on trying all of them!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Errrin

    I caved and purchased a Tofu Xpress. Its nice to go on a tofu binge and not have 20 dishtowels to launder afterwards.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Shannon

    Chia seeds, speculoos, and doughnut pans have changed my life for the better!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Lyndi Flugum-Collins

    I’m just starting on Pinterest, so I can’t wait to get into it more! And I look forward to trying more vegan slow cooking.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Christi

    I’m totally excited to try the vegan Cadbury Eggs!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Vicky

    I’m going to try burdock root – if I ever find it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Courtney

    Just received fresh organic kale in our home produce delivery box and with the 80+ degree weather here in LA this weekend, I’ve got to try the Grilled Kale.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: irina

    Dunwell Donuts = oh. em. gee. The best donuts I’ve ever had, especially the coconut flavor!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Amanda @ Hungry Vegan Traveler

    I have tried AND LOVED the nachos at FuD in Kansas City!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Courtney

    Coconut whipped cream. I’m convinced it is better than dairy whipped cream and ABSOLUTELY better than whipped cream in a can.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm: Crystal E

    The Falafel Nachos are like combining two of my favorite foods ever. I can’t wait to delve into that recipe!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Steve

    Caulipots are awesome (#9), and I will absolutely check out Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food ASAP (#2). And here’s proof that I’m a big fan of #100: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DzRkOYal-D8/TqTZECqbOII/AAAAAAAAAak/ZffTMIeoa80/s1600/brewprep.jpg

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Lexi Rodrigo

    Do we answer here or at the bottom of the Top 100 post? Anyway, I’d love to try a tofu press. I know you don’t even use one, Isa, but I can imagine how much easier it would make my life :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Eric P.

    I can’t wait to try the OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese. I used to make a vegetarian mac & cheese with squash, but a vegan version would surely squash the competition!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Nancy

    I used lentils for the first time last year when making my tacos. It was amazing and is now a regular in rotation for taco nights!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Angela

    Oh man! Sign me up for the Quinoa Sushi! I love out of the normal fusion stuff and I’m dying to try this soon.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: veganlinda

    Love the steamed seitan from Viva Vegan! Tried soy curls for the first time too. So many great things on the list!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Lisa Adams-May

    I’d love to try the quinoa sushi! I have a packet sitting in the back of my cupboard, feeling like a spare wheel whenever I put it with dishes. This should be perfect!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm: Cindy

    Soaked cashews seem to have a ton of purposes, but I haven’t tried them yet; I’m eager to try recipes that call for them. I hope to spend a weekend in KC sometime in 2012, so I imagine the FUD nachos are in my future, too. I pre-ordered the next issue of Chickpea a few weeks ago, so I am eager to see that; the digital version of the previous issue is gorgeous. Candy bars! I definitely want to try making my own.. honestly, I’d like to make it through the whole list where the items involve making something, because 2012 is my Year 2 for vegan cooking. Last year I just started to become familiar with substitutions and the new ingredients; I’d really like to increase my skills/knowledge quite a bit in 2012.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Shana Donskey

    I am interested in getting a Magic Bullet, I cook every day, I use a recipe from your site once a week ! I also would love to try Beet Burgers, it just sounds incredible!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Brenda

    I love soy-free veganaise, and all of your recipes ;)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Mary Beth Schuler

    I discovered the vegan coconut whip cream. It is amazing, and has changed my pies!! Yummy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Sarah Greis

    I tried coconut Yogurt this year and hated it. I swore off of Vegan yogurt. Than the other day I was at a Key Foods and they had raspberry soy yogurt on sale three for a dollar, so I thought I’d give it another chance….and I loved it! I can’t wait to mix it with fresh fruits!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Heather

    I just moved to Kansas City and can’t wait to go to FUD and try the nachos (and everything else)!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: melanie

    i was in LA recently and my first stop was doomies. vegan big mac ftw! living in portland, it’s a breeze finding anything i crave…but doomie’s big mac and their fried chicken are unreal, and definitely not something you find anywhere here in the nw.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Maggie

    I tried Pinterest for the first time a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it. I found some super-cool recipes, and hope to share some of my own.

    This year I look forward to trying: massaged kale salads, chia seeds, butternut squash mac & cheese, cultured cashew cheese and coconut whipped cream. YUM!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Kyle

    Skittles Juice!!!!!!! Skittles Jucie!!!!!! Skittles Juice!!! I have a brand new juicer/extractor and I cannot wait to fire it up and make this magic. YUMMMYYYYYYYYYY! <3

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Megan

    I’m going to try the anise/fennel seed mix. I LOVE fennel, so if this is even better, well, I’ll be in heaven!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Lori

    I bought coconut flour on a whim and now I put it in almost all my baked goods.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: krystyna

    make your own candy? yes please!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Jodie Munster

    Peppermint Chocolate Cupcakes :) beautiful :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Anne M.

    Tried the Obsessive Confection Disorder sweets at two different events this year – they’re awesome! Also, I’m looking forward to trying the Smoky Soy Curls.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: Emily

    I live in Paris and as of yet haven’t found the magical Vegusto cheese. I will continue searching to my dying day, for wondrously tasty vegan cheese is the rarest of buried treasure.

    Thanks for such a warm-hearted show of generosity to the internetz!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm: silvi

    I tried the butternut squas mac n cheese and bookmark like other 50!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Rachael

    I am SO intrigued by chickpea tofu! Chickpeas are my favorite legumes, so it HAS the be the best.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Jessica

    I am really looking forward to getting a copy of Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food! And I’ve just made my first batch of Broth Bag vegetable broth–which may be the greatest homecooking idea ever.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Larissa

    I’m totally going to get Sarah Kramer’s vegan app for my iPad! So excited!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Erica

    I really want to try deviled eggs – I used to eat them as a non-veg, and miss that taste!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Marissa Wollard

    The Eggplant & Black Eyed Pea Curry looks so bomb.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Kat

    It’s hard for me to pick because there is just too much vegan goodness going on in that list, but I’m going to say SOAKED CASHEWS for the win, man. What can’t they do? I’ve made raw cheezecakes, gravies, salad dressings and even a Dorito-craving-killing RAWCHO CHEESE that I pretty much want to bathe in. Soaked cashews are a simple, epic, vegan miracle and I thank you for broadcasting this via your awesome list.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Denise V

    I love that Chia seeds are starting to get some recognition! I’ve been all over that shit for many years. Also, massaged kale salads. So good.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Heather Roy

    I’ve recently been experimenting with soaking cashews since seeing it on the ppk 100 list! AMAZING!!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Laura Oliver

    I can’t wait to crack that stapled spine of Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Lizzie

    Pinterest and garden tomatoes were great additions to my 2011, maybe refrigerator pickles should play a part in 2012….

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Bonnie

    Make your own mixes was genius for me. Being a mom of four this makes a quick grab and eat kind of deal. Hope I win!!!
    Love all you do,

    Bonnie

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm: Megan

    Can’t wait to get Caribbean Vegan. Roti….mmmmmm!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Jordan

    Don’t know if we’re supposed to post here or on the Top 100 page, but this is what I posted there:
    “My favourite discovery from the list is “71)Agar agar Powder.” I made Rad Whip and the Grasshopper Pie from VPitS and it went over really well–I think it’s pretty neat how it functions and it makes me feel like a scientist.”

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Katrina

    Soaked cashews changed my life. No, really. I was so excited to try them in conjunction with your newest “Vegan Pie in the Sky” and I have been impressing family, friends and coworkers left and right. Also, I love Pinterest- I have literally spent hours on the site looking at arts and crafts and of course getting ideas for vegan cooking and baking projects! I really hope to be a randomly chosen winner! Thanks PPK!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Emmakat

    I really need to make the banoffee pie! Also I am so curious about that vegan deviled egg recipe I might have to try it. Ooh, but butternut squash mac and cheese sounds glorious!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Becca

    I love the idea of the broth bag — genius! And I need a tofu xpress stat.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Mark

    Pinterest is a dirty obsession. I love to hate that place and the amount of time I spent/waste browsing.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: mara owens

    as i am a madwoman for baking and am looking for the holy grail of pie crusts, i plan on trying the olive oil crust as soon as i have a moment to do so! i love your site, and read daily. keep it coming, you guys just rock the damn casbah.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Asia

    I want to try my hand at making the Devilled Eggs for sure and invest in a nice cast iron pan. And grilled kale?! Bring on grilling season!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Summer

    Hand pies! I want them! Oh and I’ve been intrigued by these caulipots for quite some time. Off to the store I go.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Marisa

    I tried the butternut squash Mac n cheese from oh she glows. Also loving the soaked cashews! Can’t wait to try vegan cadbury eggs. Thanks as always for sharing such wonderfully yummy recipes. Whenever I make something from your site it never fails to be the best thing ever!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Jessica

    I look forward to trying out some sweet massage kale salads & making it part of my regular eating life. I LOVE soaked cashews for their awesome cheesy/creamy versatility. Thanks for making Vegan AWESOME!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: chickpeafreak

    MMMmmmmm…chickpea tofu! Two crazy worlds have collided. YUM! =)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Rachel

    I really want to try cashews in recipes. I’ve never used them to make cheese, so that’s number one on my list.
    I’m a huge fan of daiya but there are just some things it can’t do – like be in cheesecake! *drool*

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Jael

    Ooohhh… I really want to try that Burmese chickpea tofu! Also, when I get over my pregnant disdain for lentils, that lentil taco meat sounds pretty grand as well.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Sylvia

    I’ve become a huge fan of massaged kale salads and I’ve got my first broth bag filing up in the freezer. That is such a brilliant way to use up scraps.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm: Robyn

    Quinoa sushi sounds delicious!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Kayte CookWatts

    I am looking forward to trying your eggnog- I found it right after the holidays- the reviews are fantastic!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Jan Marie

    Do we comment here or on the list to win? Just in case I’m doing both! Mmmm – I’ve already tried quite a few of these! Massaged Kale Salads are my current daily obsession. What I MOST WANT to try, however, is Vegusto Cheese. Bring It!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Dors

    I got a Tofu XPress for the holidays and I just love it!!! I find I’m eating more tofu dishes because it’s so easy to press tofu now. The tofu goes into the press and into the fridge early in the day and I have perfectly pressed tofu in time for dinner. It’s like a miracle!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Margo

    I use coconut whipped cream on everything! It tastes way better than dairy whipped cream. I’m also a HUGE fan of vegan Cadbury Eggs, yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Padraic

    I look forward to trying the Lentil Taco Meat. Right now I press Tofu and scramble it for tacos, but I want to give that recipe a try!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Amanda

    Since I have the pleasure of living in LA with so many vegan options I must try Doomie’s for the Big Mac! Never heard of the place but it looks sooooo good!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Stacey MacLeod

    The Chicago Diner cookie dough “milk” shake sounds delicious. I had a bad addiction to their chocolate mouse cake. My husband works in the Whole Foods bakery and I would ask him to bring me home a piece every night.
    Hopefully we will make it out to Chi-town sometime this year, to try the milkshake..

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:14 pm: Bari

    I’m making it my personal goal to get to absolutely everything on the list by the end of this year!! I’ve definitely fallen into a rut, and it reignited my passion for vegan food. I just received my order of Food For Lovers Queso, and I’m slathering it on everything!! Next up: Falachos! I can skip around the list, right? :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Candace

    I started using Kombu this year, and it really does make “amazabeans!” Also, love Caulipots!

    Want to try Lentil Taco Meat and the Olive Oil Pie Crust :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Rachel

    Doughnut pan! All I hear on blogs is mini vegan doughuts! Too much torture! Looks like I need to find a pan and a recipe and start living, ha!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: nyki d.

    PINTEREST. and soaked cashews…damn. so delicious and versatile <3

    xo: nyki

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Kristin

    OMG Vegan Cadbury Eggs!!! How have I missed these? I’m definitely looking forward to those :D Also, I’ve recently tried 00 flour and love it love it. It’s awesomeness for focaccia.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Sara

    Tried #69 Coconut whipped cream, very simple recipe and crazy tasty on vanilla cupcakes.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Bob

    I look forward to trying: Dulce de Leche, Beer Battered Avocado Tacos, Chickpea Tofu, Cultured Cashew Cheese, and Smoky Soy Curls.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Joshua Flint

    Vegan Mozzarella Sticks with panko bread crumbs is possible one of the best things my wife and I have made sense going vegan. We are also real big on chia seeds in our green smoothies in the morning , they are soooooooo good.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Traci M.

    The absolute ONLY thing I find worth mentioning is that I’ve not only tried Food for Lovers vegan queso… I’m IN LOVE WITH IT. I happen to know and am friends with the creators/owners (they’re a husband and wife team!) and I truly believe that the reason this queso is so amazing is because THEY are so in love with each other, and that love is put into everything about their company. I still remember when the PPK 100 came out and they immediately posted on facebook how SO excited they were about it being on the list. So, not only is their queso amazingly delicious… they are the sweetest vegans I know. Representing Austin, TX ya’ll!! Also…… I would probably be happy if the only prize here was the $100 to my fave kitty charity. :) Thanks for this opportunity Isa!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: Tammy

    Your pecan pie recipe and pancake recipes are two new things I tried (and loved!) recently. I’m looking forward to branching out into tempeh and seitan–have eaten both but haven’t made anything with them at home. Yet. :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm: MK

    I need to try the tofu xpress!! I need to find a faster and more efficient way to press.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm: Almira Tanner

    So, apparently I’m not that exciting since I’ve barely done any of the PPK 100… but I recently used agar agar powder for the first time in the Key Lime Pie from VPITS and I didn’t screw it up. It was delicious! I’m looking forward to a whole bunch of things, but mostly soaking cashews so I can make some awesome cheesecake!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm: Michele

    I’m a fairly new vegan (9 months) and have learned so much from your blog/cookbooks! Soaked cashews make so many yummy things possible! My nonvegan husband thought I was nuts when I made a lasagna out of cashew cream and macadamia ricotta, but he loved it! Thank you for all your great ideas!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm: Lisa

    I’ve now had Soy Curls (YUM!) and would really like to try the Tofu Xpress next. Ace list, appreciate your hard work!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm: rick

    I love this list. My partner and I made the Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese earlier this week, directly due to you including it here, and it was delish! In fact, that whole site is awesome. Next mission: making homemade candy bars.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm: sara

    I am really excited about the soy-free vegenaise, as well as many other new soy-free products I’ve seen this year. And not quite on the list, but I’m really excited that I learned how to make caramels over the holiday season. I plan to incorporate that into my already delicious peanut butter cup recipe (see, this is kind of like the ‘home-made candy bar’ item). I’m excited for Vegan Cadbury eggs and the Vegusto cheese, should it ever find its way to the midwest. And i’m excited about the chickpea tofu.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm: Melanie Yo

    I am very interested in trying the mushroom hot pot and the chana masala! I have tried and loved a few of your desserts. I have the vegan baking pretty well. But I am currently most excited about the mushroom hot pot and chana masala as I am trying to expand my vegan cooking repertoire. Since sadly I cannot exist on frosting alone.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm: Lauren Rossi Harroun

    I am, and have been, completely obsessed with using my cast iron pans for cooking everything since I first got them years ago. Loving the PPK 100 so far, and can’t wait to try out lots of the links – perhaps 100 days of PPK are in order!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm: Melissa

    I love following #100 – iPad in the Kitchen. I recently bought the ebook of Vegan Brunch & it’s awesome to be able to listen to tunes & make tempeh bacon all from the same device!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm: Jason

    #84 Beet Burgers. Also gonna hit those baked balsamic beets but this burger sounds so good. Love the tip about the cast iron skillet.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm: Kim Y

    Tried Blentec! I’m looking forward to chia seeds (just got some!) <3 :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm: Misty

    I would like to try Kale and soy curls. I’ve only used kale in smoothies and not heard much on the other. Many thanks & blessings!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm: Mike.

    Speculoos!
    I went all the way to Belgium for it (ok, maybe for some Trappist Ale and the like as well).
    Delighted it is easier to find on this side of the Atlantic now.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm: Jen

    I’m so looking forward to trying the devilled eggs!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm: Cassie B

    Falafel. Nachos. I mean. Nachos. Falafel. I … my brain is broken from NEVER HAVING THOUGHT OF THIS MYSELF. Oh my bob, I don’t know how anything could sound better. FALAFEL NACHOS. #deadfromdelicious

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm: Cristy

    Love: Vegan Cheesecake and Loafs (Loaves?)
    Want: Peanut Flour and Coconut Whip Cream! Also, Speculoos.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm: Tzivya

    I’m a mega PPK fan and have liked almost everything I’ve made from your recipes so far…
    Best ever is the Pecan Bars from the Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar!
    I’ve fed these to many a pecan bar/pie lover and they couldn’t believe they were vegan!
    Hope I win :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm: Chantelle MacKinnon

    #93 steamed seitan from viva vegan! I picked up the book at the Vegetarian Food Fair in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and brought it back East to Nova Scotia! The vegans and vegetarians in the beautiful Annapolis Valley…especially Tupperville are grateful for these fabulous recipes! Thank you

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Tina

    So many awesome choices. But I must try the vegan Cadbury eggs someday! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Robin Freeman

    I had heard of chia seeds a little bit, but had no idea what to do with them. When I read the PPK 100 I finally decided to give them a try and make chocolate chia pudding. I’m in love with it–brought it to work and my colleagues all loved it too!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Carolyn

    I am completely obsessed with OhSheGlows butternut squash mac and cheese, and I make the sauce in my magic bullet, so there’s two already! Everything on the list looks so amazing though; in fact, I’m on my way to make some coconut whipped cream right now! Thanks a million for all the glorious things, they make me so happy.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Brandy

    Tried and loved: my new Tofu XPress, Biscoff spread, making your vegan pumpkin cheesecake (having never made any kind of cheesecake before), and making Kittee’s awesome Ethiopian recipes.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Sara

    I finally tried Speculoos and thought it was pretty dreamy, but I might be able to try those FUD nachos when I visit my sis in KC, along with many other things on that lovely menu.

    -Sara-

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Sarah Cowett

    I think I could make a vegan meal from your list. For the main course, my family and I love tacos, and I would definitely love to try out the lentil taco meat. Also, although the thought of green smoothies is unappetizing to me, one that tasted like Skittles might make me change my mind! Finally for dessert, the Obsessive Confection Disorder caramels look insanely gorgeous.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Emily Jean

    For the Friday Giveaway Mania! I’ve been using my Cast Iron Pan to make everything this year! Made some Chickpea Cutlets and Scrambled Tofu last week, as well as some sautéed Kale, and they were all delicious and cooked perfectly!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Chelsea

    I’m looking forward to trying more kale recipes, such as the grilled kale and massage kale salad. Tried it for the first time this year, and much to my surprise I really enjoyed it! Oh, and the Falachos. Two of my favorite foods merged into one delicious dish? Yes, please!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: Jessibee

    I look forward to trying coconut whipped cream! Hopefully on top of a delicious pie from Vegan Pie in the Sky :) I also think I may bite the bullet (har har har) and get a Magic Bullet. I was always pretty sure they were some kind of gimmick but with your seal of approval, I think it’s time I picked one up!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm: krista

    I want to try the parboiled oven fries–they look really good!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:20 pm: Erin

    I’ve been needing to take the time to make a vegan pumpkin cheesecake from your cookbook. It looks amazing and
    i know I’m gonna love every bite of it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:20 pm: mike

    Made homemade seitan last night! It was amazing.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:20 pm: Kelly Beltramo

    I have really wanted to make Refrigerator Pickles. I must do that soon! Oh, and the Falafel Nachos look very yummy. Thank you so much for all the great recipes and ideas that you post.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:20 pm: Ilaria

    Quinoa sushi! I absolutely have to try it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: supercarrot

    i still haven’t ever made coconut whipped cream. i i think i will remedy that soonishly.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Dawn (Vegan Fazool)

    To try: Chia seeds! I’m still a little afraid of them, er, um, their effect, that is :) I have a bag ready to go, though. Soon!
    Know and love: My TofuXPress, baby! And coconut flour, been using it all year with a lot of success.

    XOXO

    P.S. Oh please please please let me win something! I’ve never won a giveaway before, and this is the Cadillac of giveaways! Thanks for the chance, Isa!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Amanda in AK

    I love the concept of Vegan Slow Cooking. We live in Alaska, and this time of year anything simmering in a crock pot is always a good thing! My husband is NOT vegan, but my toddler son and I are. Minimal prep time and ‘magically’ having a meal ready would be super!

    We really appreciate you coming up with the 100— some things I had never even heard of! I would also love to try Quinoa sushi…. sounds awesome!

    Thank you again for helping me to show vegan and non vegans that our lifestyle isn’t something to feared! And in the land of hunting animals and having heads on walls, that is saying something.

    Amanda

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Ashley F.

    I’m excited to try out #28 – Tofu Xpress! I just got mine yesterday and I’m super excited to try it out – the book pressing works fine, but this is soooo much easier! Thank you for this AMAZING giveaway!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Judy Maxwell

    cultured cashew cheese! and grilled Kale!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: wealhtheow

    Definitely looking forward to trying the butternut squash mac & cheez. Also caulipots and anything on that page that have to do with chocolates.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Miranda G.

    Gotta be kale salads, yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: jomamma

    Can’t wait to try chia seeds, and the Magic Bullet so I can make homemade baby food for my wee one…but I could totally name 98 more things…

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Chelsea

    I can’t wait for a chance to try the pumpkin cheesecake. I’m currently drooling just thinking about it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:21 pm: Seana

    I love massaged kale salads – I eat this all the time in the warmer months. I am really curious about trying the deviled eggs and the falafel nachos.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Keith

    I think I can’t resist giving #70 the Falafel Nachos a try. Two of my favorite things, together at last.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Laura

    The beet burgers look pretty groovy! I love beets!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Erin

    Favorite: vanilla beans.
    Thing I want to try next: Speculoos!

    Great list!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Kimberley landsman

    Vegan pumpkin cheesecake… I shared a little and ate a LOT. I even saved a piece for my elderly raccoon friend, Maury & Alice, who visit our garbage area nightly, they too give it a thumbs up. Chai seeds… How FUN are they, my favorite kombuchi tea now makes flavors with chai seeds in it, I feel like I’m 8 years old slurping down the soft crunch of them.
    ;)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Anne Bresnahan

    I love pinterest! Great inspiration!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Terri

    I got a sexy green stand mixer for Christmas and tried my hand at vegan baking for the very first time. The mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles were a smashing success! Can’t wait to make them again.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: christina taylor

    I’ve had a pound of dried Gigante beans sitting in a jar for about 2 months now and I am just waiting to find the perfect recipe for them! I had to special order them from a specialty food store because no one sells them around me. First time i’ll be cooking with them so I want to make it a pretty spectacular meal because I just LOVE these beans. Is it crazy to love a bean?

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Karen Hakamaki

    As a “new” vegan, I have tried so many of the 100 for the first time in 2011. Soaked cashews are amazing and I now use chia on an almost daily basis. However, my absolute favourite of the 100 is “cooking for someone you love.” Because I am making vegan meals, my omnivorous hubby is now eating more vegan and much less meat! I am also spreading the love by exchanging recipes and yummy vegan food with my mother (who also went vegan shortly after I did). I look forward to spreading the love even further as I try more of the 100!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Marya

    Cooking for someone (or someones) I love! Especially when that someone is an omni, is trying vegan food…and is blown away!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Maeve

    I’ve already tried a few of these and they were great, like the soaked cashews and the vegan queso, but I am looking forward to trying them all particularly vegan slow-cooking, the falafel nachos, and the quinoa sushi!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm: Gretchen manzer

    Cant wait to dry vegan deviled eggs! I had myself convinced it was just one of those things there will never be a replacement for. Never say never i guess!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Allison L.

    I need to try Chia Seeds, specifically to make chia seed pudding, and Soaked Cashews, specifically to make the cheesecakes in your new pie book! I am also hoping to one day have an iPod in my kitchen (but the other two options seem more likely in the near future).

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Winona

    Grilled kale- can’t believe I haven’t tried that yet. Love making kale chips and sautee0mmm

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Brittany Breithaupt

    I can’t wait to try beet burgers! They sound amazing!!! For the things I love, I love my Tofu Xpress that I got for my vegan wedding!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Heather

    I’m going to go with the Vegan Big Mac At Doomie’s, LA. Potentially visiting this summer and it looks amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Tiffany Wilson

    I have started working with Agar agar powder. I have been making my own block cheezes. I also tried to make a custard with it and used to much:) I could have put it in a jello mold and made little stars out of them. it looked kind of like a flan.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Sage A

    Vegan Cadbury Eggs! Cadbury Creme Eggs are one of the only seasonal treats that I swoon for. I am so, so excited to try the Vegan Cadbury Eggs.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Celeste from Growing Up Veg

    I’d love to try the Tofu Xpress, and plan to harvest some burdock root from my backyard this year,

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm: Christine

    I miss good cheesecake and I really want to try vegan cheesecake. When I became vegan I knew I would miss the taste of certain things but my ethics won out.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: Angela R.

    77) Chloe Coscarelli’s Pumpkin Tiramisu.. AMAZING!!! Cannot wait to try this. Pumpkin and tiramisu together?? AHH!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: Jarrad

    I can’t wait to try/make 97) Vegan Dad’s Hot Cross Buns

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: urbaninfogirl

    Vegan cadbury eggs?! OMG totally want to try those!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: Karina

    I am also a relatively recent vegan (as of 05/01/2011), so I am still trying out alot of things (although I believe I have tried every vegan pie in the sky recipe! I have not used soaked cashews yet (the horror!) so that will be next on my list. I also MUST have vegan cadbury cream eggs. It sounds so wrong, yet still so right. I love that I am at a place where I am moving away from the more “boring” conventional vegan ingredients and starting to experiment!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: molly

    Since reading the post I’ve tried the butternut mac and cheese (and have made it twice!), chi seeds and the broth bag! I’ve excited to try cultured cashew cheese, deviled eggs and a bunch of other things on the list! <3

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: RH

    I’ve been crazy for chia seeds lately… chia puddings every morning! I also love adding soaked cashews to my smoothies for a dreamy creamy post-workout treat.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: Greg

    I wanna try making my own candy bars! mmm

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm: Christina Morrison

    I love PPK’s spaghetti pomodoro. I had never had spaghetti sauce NOT from a jar and now I only make spaghetti noodles with fresh tomatoes!

    Now if I could only master the tofu balls . . .

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Morgan

    Soaked cashews have blown my mind this past year. As a recent vegetarian/vegan and a girl raised Italian, I had been missing yummy creamy sauces. Another thing that has been fun is cooking vegan for my boyfriend, who is as far from vegan as you can get. And he loves what I cook! Awesome! Your website has been my go to for all things yummy and vegan. :]

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Willow

    I absolutely need to start making “broth bags” (#11). I always over think making broth, and end up buying because it’s just easier, but this might just make my life easier.

    Broth in the crockpot? perfect right? You just throw it in there and forget about it.

    ;o)

    The Quinoa sushi is also on my list…

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Lindsey

    Vegan Cadbury motherfluffing Eggs. My kryptonite… love Love LOVE! Also can’t wait to try some vegan slow cooking in my fancy new Crock pot!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Wendy

    Loved the orange cranberry muffins. Delicious! Looking forward to trying more recipes in my vegan freezer exchange.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Katie B

    Soaking cashews! I probably soak cashews at least 3x per week. They are necessary for creamy – but healthy salad dressings! I even got my father hooked on them, yay!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Jacqueline

    I got into using Chia this year both as a secondary ingredient and as a primary ingredient in chia puddings. I would love to try a donut pan this year though.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: Angie B.

    I reeeeeeally want to try making my own seitan. I just wish I could find chickpea flour in this town fffffff!!!

    Also my cast iron skillets are my favoritest kitchen tools ever. <3

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm: gail

    i would love to try the tofu xpress this year! every time i press tofu, and stack cans on top, i think: i need one of those tofu press thingys :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: Angela

    The magical bark-to-snake transformation of kombu is delicious, to boot, and I’m thrilled by the prospect of getting my hands on a copy of Elizabeth Andoh’s cookbook Kansha this year. Itadakimasu!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: Katie

    I have the Cuisinart Green Gourmet Skillet and I looooove it! I searched for a long time to find a great toxic free non-stick and it was well worth the wait! I’ve been using mine for over a year and it still works great.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: gloria kersh

    I have not tried the vegan cheesecake but I WOULD love to give it a whirl. — thank you for the 100 list. It’s almost as awesome as ya’ll are!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: Susan Fowler

    I got the Tofu Xpress this past year. It is so freaking awesome. I wish I had gotten two and I wish I had gotten one sooner. It seems pricey till you try it.

    This is not on your list, Isa, but I made your chickpea cutlets for the first time the day after Thanksgiving as I was looking for something to eat with leftover mashed potatoes and gravy. I used the double batch recipe you have posted on ppk and paid especially close attention to all the extremely helpful photos. Not only were they awesome but the successful venture emboldened me to try making my own seitan chicken and later, seitan ham. So thank you for finally getting me over my fear of homemade seitan.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: Jackie @ Vegan Yack Attack!

    Oh gosh, there’s so many things on your PPK 100 that I’ve tried or have been dying to try! I’ve wanted the Tofu Xpress ever since I saw a post about it, and I haven’t eaten at Doomie’s in forever so the Big Mac sounds AMAZING! Who doesn’t love Oh She Glows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese? I made my own version and it was SO good.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: Emily

    Ooh, so much to choose from!! I adore Pinterest, and I’m stoked to try soaking cashews, falachos, grilled kale, and chickpea tofu. I love the Stoner Vegan illustrations, and the Weekly Vegan Menu blog. And since I may in all likelihood be going to grad school in NYC, I gotta check out Steamed Dumplings & Assorted Wheat Gluten at House of Vegetarian!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm: Alyssa

    I made the pumpkin cheesecake and my non-veg parents were quite literally licking their plates! Vegan cheesecake and soaked cashews for all kinds of wins.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: todd

    cripes! there’s 100 things on this list and i am supposed to choose just one? i will cheat and list two things that have me smacking my lips: the saoji masala tempeh sounds amazing; because i am a tofu-holic, i think i should really look into getting a tofu-xpress.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: April

    I for sure LOVE my magic bullet! I tried the garlic peeling method and I could not believe it worked (although it gave my arms quite the workout!) I want to try to quinoa sushi. Looks yummo!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: Michelle

    OMG! I am totally excited to try those vegan devilled eggs!!!! Also, I grabbed a bag of chia seeds that I am looking forward to experimenting with!! Love you!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: Celina

    I just joined Pinterest [#3] about a week ago and I am in love! I can’t wait to try out the Tofu Xpress [#28] because I still can’t make tofu well which i suspect has something to do with my poor planning/time management skills and general impatience. Thanks for the list Isa!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: Lauren

    Chickpea tofu looks so amazing! I want to scramble it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: frandroid atreides

    Chickpea tofu! Oh my dog! Making this ASAP! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: natnadam

    Loved: massaged kale salads – I’d eat one every day if I could! (I should!) Need to try: donut pans. Since I’m nowhere near Mighty-O, Voodoo or Dunwell, I might as well try making them myself.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: Melanie

    Here’s hoping I get back to NYC this year and if I do, this will be at the top of my list:

    66) Steamed Dumplings and Assorted Wheat gluten at House Of Vegetarian, NYC

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: PG

    Vegan cheesecake. I bought a springform pan expressly for this purpose. I just need to find an occasion, or maybe I don’t need an occasion at all.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: Jen d

    I have an Indoor Mushroom Growing Kit growing right now and it is MAGICAL!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm: Melissa

    I made the butternut squash mac n cheese from Oh She Glows and it was amazing! I highly recommend it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm: jamie

    i look forward to trying the lentil taco filling, and the handpies (something from the new pie cookbook which i got for xmas). also happy to report that i have replaced all of my skillet pans with cast iron. i even put them in the oven to bake stuff. i would love to get a nice cast iron baking sheet, if such a thing exists.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm: Anna George

    I have been wanting a Tofu Xpress since last year!! This will be the year I grab one up. i really hate pressing tofu. Takes so long… is so boring. :(

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm: Lindsey

    Caulipots and kale salad! Yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm: Jennifer C.

    Pinterest, for sure, has changed my vegan cooking life this year. So many wonderful recipes!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm: teapot

    Speculoos changed my life for the better. I am planning on caulipots for tonight and suspect they will do the same!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm: Jenny

    Massaged kale salad is probably the most awesome thing ever. That’s something I tried this last year and loved. Especially with avocado chunks, miso dressing, and lots of seeds. Yum.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Liz

    Hopefully I’ll be able to trek downstate to NYC and Long Island soon so I can get my hands on some Dunwell Donuts and 3 Brothers Pizza Cafe!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Leah

    I love my tofu xpress, soaked cashews, spekuloos, pinterest, magic bullet for smoothies, massaged kale salads, chia seeds, unsweetened plain soygurt, OSG squash mac and cheese, agar agar, steamed seitan, buying vegan food on amazon, cooking for someone i love, and just got a copy of papa tofu loves ethiopian!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Sara

    My friend brought me a copy of Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian from VidaVeganCon this summer and I’m smitten. Smitten with the book, Kittee Berns and Papa Tofu!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Kristine Wiffen

    Caulipots and soaked cashews and quinoa sushi! Oh my! So many amazingly delicious vegan treats and cheats have revolutionized my year. And, I can’t wait to try me some massaged kale salad. PS You rock my world, PPK! ;)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Steve Killen

    The deviled eggs come out at #1 for me to try. We just got kala namak to make your tofu omelettes, and I long remember deviled eggs from my family gatherings–now a practical vegan, I look forward to the challenge!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Jen O

    Awesome giveaway! I’ve made a resolution this year to make my own veggie broth as much as possible. I have a ziplock bag halfway ready for my first batch! I also checked out Chickpea Magazine from your link and I think it’s a great read – I’m excited to see how it evolves this year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Dan

    Falachos…can’t believe I haven’t tried this yet. Looks amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm: Derek

    I’m definitely trying falafel nachos. Actually, I will probably be trying them many times!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm: Jenelle

    My favorite discovery of 2011 was vegan slow cooking thanks to the cookbook. Didn’t realize I could go way beyond soups.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm: Jinxi

    I have wanted a Tofu Xpress for so long and I do believe that 2012 is the year to give in and splurge on one.
    Oh, and how much does grilled kale rule? Seriously…so good! <3

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm: Daria

    This year, the goal is to finally get a Tofu Xpress. There’s a tub of tofu in my fridge that really wants to be pressed by it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm: Elizabeth

    I love the FFL queso, it is so yummy! I also put kombu in all of my soups and beans. I just bought some chia seeds so I will try these out tonight!

    I’m looking forward to doing some refrigerator pickling this summer!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:31 pm: Melissa Morrison

    I got the Tofu Express for Christmas. It’s awesome and so easy! A must have!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm: Dina

    I already have all the books but I want to win a t-shirt! I’ve covered a lot of the things on the list so far … i think one of the most useful ones is Steamed Seitan. Also I love coconut flour.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm: Melissa

    Hey! I love the top 100! I can’t list all the products that I’ve tried and loved, but I will say that one of my favorites (I can’t pick just one favorite) is soaked cashews! My husband and I tried cashew queso, and LOVE it, we almost always have some on hand. By extension, I love vegan cheesecake, rad whip, etc etc. I’m intrigued by the deviled eggs, that is a must try! Thanks!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm: Andrea LaBonte

    Looking forward to finally trying brown rice syrup!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm: Leala

    I love my Tofu Xpress! It’s awesome! There are so many things on your list that I want to try. Coconut whipped cream, lentil taco meat, beet burgers, the list goes on and on. BTW, we absolutely LOVE your pumpkin waffles. The downside is we eat them so fast. Even when I try to save a couple for later, I end up snacking on it until they’re gone! Thanks for expanding my knowledge and experience of veganism. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm: Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday

    Hot Cross Buns! Yum.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm: Phoebe

    I live in KCMO and will definitely be trying out the FUD nachos ASAP! I was so excited to see my hometown represented, and a restaurant that will be new to me! THANK YOU!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm: Jenn

    Hands down, Fud Nachos in KCMO! We go there all the time. To try… coconut whipped cream.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm: Stacey

    Massaged kale salads, for sure! Have committed to making that and kale chips for the first time in 2012.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm: Jill

    Pinterest has totally changed the way I find and store my web recipes! Not only is it inspiring but it opens up so many more possibilities!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm: Alyse

    I live on massaged kale salad, and the unsweeted westsoy was the best thing that happened to vegan yogurt this year! Finally able to make rich sauces without worrying about it being crazy sweet!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:34 pm: Kat-owl

    This year a tofu xpress will join the army of awesome kitchen gadgets in our house. Stoked to have more options when preparing tofu! No more wasted paper tools and tofu mush!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:34 pm: Stephanie

    Grilled kale! I love kale and have never tried it that way but it sounds SO GOOD! :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:34 pm: Sarah

    I have been enjoying whole spices in the last year, and just recently tried the combination of Anise/fennel seed in my stovetop chai recipe! I agree that they are very similiar, but I love this combination. Mmmm. Thanks ppk! Next on my list is your pumpkin cheesecake recipe! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:34 pm: megs

    SPECULOOS. I think my blood is half Speculoos by now.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:34 pm: Amanda

    I definitely want to try the vegan cadbury eggs and the pumpkin cheesecake with pecan topping!! And the blackened scrambled tofu and garlicky grits…I’m a southern gal after all!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Lesley

    I have to answer both questions because I can’t choose just one!

    I’m most looking forward to trying the broth bag. My husband and I throw our food scraps in the freezer until we have enough to put on our compost pile, so it’ll be super easy to separate the veggie scraps for a broth bag. And since we make a lot of soup, it’ll be nice to start using homemade broth instead of store-bought.

    The thing that I already tried and love is Lagusta’s Luscious chocolates. I live in New Paltz, NY, so I am lucky enough to be able to enjoy them whenever I want. My favorite by far is her Smoky Corn on the Cob. The combination of flavors is divine!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Christina

    Love soaked cashews and I can’t wait to try the tofu express!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Clare

    I’m really excited to try the OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese and the Vegan Stoner’s Baked Banana Cake! It’s in the oven now. Yum!! And the Chicago Diner Cookie Dough Shake is the bee’s knees!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Sheenasaurus

    I’m gonna make falafel nachos tonight thanks to the ppk’s list! I don’t have any of your schwag, but have been an avid follower in the last couple months!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Tara Marie

    Oh, goodness. I’m awfully excited to try olive oil piecrust, and those deviled eggs are adorable. I attempted the beet burgers a few years ago and thoroughly botched them- inedible, but I’d like to have one made by someone else :) And of course lentil taco filling is a weekly standby… My 4 year old sings the “peanut butter” song and in place of “jelly” she does “lentils” with jazz hands. We maybe eat loads of lentils.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Alix

    oh man, so many on the list spoke to me. but 2011 for me was the year of massaged kale salads and coconut whipped cream. and chia seeds. and pinterest. and coconut flour…

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm: Aaron

    I nearly stopped reading at #1, soaked cashews, because I had a feeling it was what I was missing all my life. I’m sick of everything “creamy” I make tasting like f’ing soymilk. So I marched right into the kitchen and made a big batch. I used some in a creamy soup recipe that called for soymilk and it was, in fact, what I was missing. Thanks!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm: Anna J

    I tried chia seeds in kombucha and in fresh apple cider last year – really delicious! Makes me want to add them to everything.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm: Lauren

    Buying vegan food on amazon to share the nooch love! I sent my mom and aunt nooch via amazon and got em hooked!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm: Michelle B

    Massaged Kale? Yes! Can’t get enough kale. Now I can play with it too. Yippee!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm: wendy

    that quinoa sushi! always looking for new ways to eat it …

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm: Victoria Siangco

    I love the Vegan Slow Cooker by Kathy Hester. Recipes I can throw together before work and come home to a dinner that’s ready. I really want to try the beet burgers. There’s a resturant here who makes them but they are grilled along side beef and chicken. I can’t wait to make my own.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm: Stephanie Brown

    I love, love, love soaked cashews – can’t believe it took me so many years to discover them!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm: Cindy

    I recently tried coconut butter and am hooked on it!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm: Deena

    I bought that indoor mushroom growing kit for a friend–I’m excited to try the mushrooms that they’re growing! I got my first cast iron skillet recently and LOVE IT. I’ll definitely be checking out cultured cashew cheese!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm: Kristine

    I want to try to be the very best me I can be…that means enjoying the freakin hell out of every single moment…and I am taking chia seed pudding with me for the ride!!! Peace!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm: Emily Amarnick

    *oohhh, I can’t wait to try massaged kale salads, Soy free Veganase ,Coconut whipped cream and chia seeds. (Chia seed pudding anyone?)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:38 pm: Kaycee

    I would love to try those Vegan Cadbury Eggs, the Vegan Big Mac at Doomies, and the skittles juice (been looking everywhere for a recipe with no success btw). I have/ tried and love the Tofu Xpress, Magic Bullet, Sweet and Sara Marshmallows and I’m obsessed with VKRees Photography. Best I’ve ever seen!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:38 pm: Ashley

    I definitely want to try vegan cadbury eggs! and will soon try to make coconut whipped cream….YUM!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:39 pm: Lou

    This is awesome because pie in the sky will complete my collection!! I can’t wait to try caulipots (cauliflower as mashed potatoes). Yummmmmy

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:39 pm: Utility cyclist

    Soaked cashews are great. Sooo yummy.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:39 pm: caroline m.

    it’s a tie between pinterest and massaged kale salads. both are a daily necessity :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:39 pm: Jenny B

    Massaged kale sounds delicious! I really look forward to trying the Vegan Stoner recipes though…

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:39 pm: Chelsea

    Peeling garlic in 10 seconds is a revelation for me. I’m ready to leave work early just so I can give it a try!!

    When we moved to Hawaii my husband convinced me to give up my slow cooker. 2 years later I finally got a new one and I’m committed to using it once a week. It’s so amazing to come home from work and have dinner already made.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:40 pm: Britta

    Quinoa sushi is pretty much the most awesome idea ever. I can’t wait to try it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:40 pm: Megan

    I finally this year tried cultured cashew cheese, and making my own massage kale salads – now I’m eating kale salad like every day. :B So yummy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:41 pm: Nataleigh

    I have SUCH a sweet tooth, so I’ve GOT to have #61, the Chicago Diner’s Cookie Dough Shake! I am a cookie dough fiend–the kid that would rather eat dough than baked cookies when I was younger (really, the fact that I avoided salmonella was amazing)–and that hasn’t changed a bit since I grew up and went vegan!

    I heard so many amazing things about this milkshake, and was so thrilled to try it when I went to Chicago in August of last year. My trip lasted less than 18 hours, but I managed to make it to the Diner…but they were all out of cookie dough :( so I settled for Chocolate Peanut Butter.

    I still dream of it, and hope to have one this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:41 pm: Anne

    I want to try Vegan Slow Cooking. I bought the book already, now I just have to get out the crock pot and try some recipes!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm: Emily

    I have been loving my tofu xpress, massaged kale salads, and green juice, but I’m excited to grill kale!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm: Bill Gasper

    Which items do you look forward to trying this year? I look forward to trying:
    8) Obsessive Confection Disorder
    26) Dumpling squash
    25) Dunwell Donuts
    29) Vegan Cadbury Eggs
    I guess I like sweets.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm: Dawn

    I am hoping to try the Tofu Xpress..I have wanted one for a few months now! I would also like to try growing my own mushrooms. A friend of mine in WI has been bringing mushrooms down to Central IL for me and I just love it, but I would like to try it for myself. And Vegan Cadbury Eggs…..no way… my fiance is going to love that!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm: Kyle

    Looking forward to trying the broth bag idea…ingenious! (also eyeing the steamed seitan)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm: Allison

    I reallly want to try those sea salt caramels!!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm: Josh

    Cant wait to try speculoos, dunwell donuts, and refrigerator pickles which I am going to make later today. Already tried soaked cashews to make cashew cream yummo and the quinoa pasta was very good. O yea and def gotta try that dulce de leche can’t wait!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:43 pm: Gulf Breeze Vegan

    Thanks to you, I love beet burgers, hooked on chia seeds, and my new fav vegan mac n cheese recipe with butternut squash!! Thank you!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm: Sapna Llano

    Love your recipes!! Can’t wait to try chickpea tofu. Also love caulipots!! Thank you!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm: Orazie Slayton

    I would like to try the ancho lentil tacos and I must say I have go to try how to peel garlic in 10 second, I actually may do it when I get home just for the heck of it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm: Jennifer Gonzlez

    I have found a new love for soaked cashews! I put them in all of my smoothies and soups! It gives a nutty taste with a creamy consistency!
    I would love a IPAD in the kitchen! I am constantly going online looking at recipes and having to copy them. It would be so wonderful to have one so I can look at the recipe online as I am cooking!
    Also,who doesn’t love grilled Kale:)!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:45 pm: Kristina

    Lagusta’s chocolates of the month!! I love fine vegan chocolates!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:45 pm: Erin

    I want to try FUD nachos, sweet and sarah marshmallows and lentil taco meat.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:45 pm: Lyndsay Orwig

    I’m going to be trying Chia Seeds for the first time in the near future, which I’m kind of excited about. But what I’m most excited about is getting down to LA to try Doomie’s Vegan Big Mac. Also, I’ve been to Gracias Madre several times, but I still haven’t tried their flan—will do so next time I go!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:45 pm: Megan

    Quinoa sushi was a total eye opener!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: Kate

    Massaged kale salads… Amazing and a nice change to all the cooked kale loving happening in my kitchen. Hope to give chia more of a chance this year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: Christy Smith

    I am going to try to use tofu more often other than your “fish and chips” recipe from Vegan Brunch:) Especially the pecan pie from the book I want to win from you hint hint. I would also like to try to come up with the recipe for Veganaise that I can make at home cause I am really really craving it and don’t want to spend sooooo much money on it and when I do I will share with everyone. I am also going to delve into the world of canning veggies.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: Spencer

    I found some speculoos at trader joe’s last year and it made my life. I’m hoping to try soy curls at some point this year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: Autum

    I tried Kale chips recently and fell in LOVE! They are delicious. I also have an answer to the other question, I’m making homemade bread for the first time and am very excited to try it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: mme_kty

    For me, it’s the agar agar powder. I’ve had a devil of a time finding it where I live, but I found it on Vegan Essentials! I’ve got friends who are LDS, so it might be fun to make them a vegan version of Green Jello or some such. . . wild, I know.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: shawnee

    Handpies and chickpea tofu are next up on my list of things to try. Thanks!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: Sharyn

    Soaked cashews have been HUGE in my kitchen this year. When blended, they make superior mac n cheez, faux ricotta, and the SMOOTHEST, best soups. Also, Food for Lovers Queso is delicious. And I desperately would like a Vegan Cadbury Egg, to see if they are as good as I seem to remember them being as a child. (are they??0

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: Greg

    I love raw massaged kale salads! I also can’t wait to get my hands the Caribbean Vegan cookbook. Already ordered it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: CarrotyCarrots

    I would love to try the vegan slow cooking recipes! Love my slow cooker – so brilliant to have a cooked meal when I get home late from work and the house smells amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm: katy

    #1, soaked cashews, have recently changed my life! and I want to try the butternut squash mac-and-cheese.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:47 pm: Tara

    I can’t wait to try speculoos and the vegan cadbury creme eggs!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:47 pm: Oraxia

    I just bought some kala namak, so I’m super excited to try a lot of the fake egg stuff (including the awesome Deviled Egg recipe! Part of me wants to add avocado to the yolk part and make ‘em green eggs, lol). I’m also unreasonably excited about vegan donuts :P

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:47 pm: Kayleigh

    I an a peanut butter fanatic! Nothing can keep me from consuming the stuff!
    My waistline didn’t like this very much, so I started using peanut flour in my baked goods and smoothies.
    It is absolutely heavenly! And fun to work with …especially when licking the vegan batter! ;)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:47 pm: Janet

    The coconut whipped cream made my Thanksgiving (and my children) very, very happy. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:48 pm: Laura B.

    I am a kitchen gadget-addict so the Tofu XPress will be a necessary purchase. Food wise, I can’t WAIT to make the cheesecake pictured at #75. It looks so incredibly decadent :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:48 pm: Stacy

    Whole Spices! Terry’s got me finding, roasting and blending the most fascinating spice blends. I am completely converted to the “make your own blend” (Good thing that I’ve saved so many empty glass spice jars for the custom blends)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:48 pm: Rebecca

    I’m going to make Saoji Masala Tempeh. I found the stone flower at http://spicesonline.info/indian-spices/black-stone-flower-dagadfool-dagadphool-dagadful-p-12.html, and have already used it for some easy marinated tempeh fingers. It has a peculiar sharp, minerally taste.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:48 pm: Sarah

    I can’t wait to try the pumpkin tiramisu! I’ve had to avoid everything while nursing my highly allergic son. He just weaned three days ago, so I’m making a list of all of the things I can’t wait to eat or try – like the yummy pumpkin tiramisu b/c we’ve had to avoid things like coconut! I am dying for some coconut cream!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm: IzzyStardust

    I LOVE your Black-Eyed Peas and Greens recipe from Appetite For Reduction. I make it about once a week. ALSO – Can’t wait to try Vegusto, which is rumored to make its way over to the states later this year. Excited!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm: Christine

    Oh! I got some of the plain silk yogurt, it awesome in sweet and savory things! Love it!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm: shawn phillips

    I want to try the coconut whipped cream!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm: Jeanie

    I’m not sure whether we’re supposed to comment on this page or on the top 100 post, but I got an iPad and love using it in the kitchen. I can play some music and easily refer to online recipes while I’m cooking.

    I am vegetarian but want to cook more vegan meals this year. I made your ginger/carrot/macadamia/coconut cake last year and it was awesome.

    I have been contemplating getting a Tofu Xpress but I was not sure if it’s worth it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm: Mo

    My favorites:
    83 (mostly because I want to gnaw on that beardy guy for a while)
    1 (I’ve been making a lot more nut cheeses/sauces lately)
    5 ( massaged kale is amazing! now I can stop making endless kale chips and make endless kale salads instead.)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm: Jessica

    I am going to try to add more variety to the veggies in my diet. I’d love a great cookbook to give me some ideas on tasty ways to incorporate new things!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:50 pm: Jennifer

    I want to try the falafel nachos!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: Becca

    I’m really excited to try the vegan slow cooker recipes. With a baby on the way (any day now!), I’ve been looking for easy healthful dinner ideas for once I go back to work, and this is going to be a great resource.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: Kate Merriman

    That massaged kale salad looks awesome – how have I missed that until now? Might even be trying it tonight!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: Meghan

    Massaged kale salad, as garlicky as you got. Oh my lord it’s good.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: Nana Sadie

    Wow! Tons of comments!! I am so excited by the prospect of Lentil Taco fillings (I printed the Lentil-Walnut Taco Meat II). LOVE Mexican, and this just sounds yummy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: paulb

    I’m looking forward to figuring out how to use wheat germ. Also, I just received a pair of Fred’s Mix Stix, which are sure to make my baking more fun and more musical.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: krb323

    dunwell donuts – yummmmmy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: Corey C

    The Homegrown Smoker is on of THE best things ever. I spend a good amount of my time in a building right across the street and all I can do is swoon over the food being served through their window. Also, gnocchi at Portobello- I. Can’t. Even. Handle. It. Those are easily two of my favorite spots in pdx, which says a lot given the amount of incredible vegan food here, and how much I love food. Oh and refrigerator pickles… it’s a given that those are found in my fridge nowadays. They’re so tasty and easy and I just want to snack on them all the time. I wish the dilly stew with rosemary dumplings made the PPK 100 list. I have made that numerous times for folks skeptical of vegan treats and they’ve always loved it. YAHYAHYAH! Here’s to vegan cooking and my life revolving around it. And puppies. Who doesn’t love puppies?

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm: Kelly

    I look forward to trying so many things!

    36) Refrigerator Pickles
    - because we love pickles!

    37) OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese
    - because even though i love VegNews mac & cheese i should branch out

    64) Lentil Taco Meat
    - because even though my boyfriend loves his Boca or Lightlife crumbles, this is healthier

    69) Coconut Whipped Cream
    - because I have never made vegan whipped cream

    I haven’t tried much….

    94) Food for Lovers Vegan Queso (SO GOOD)
    98) Cooking for Someone You Love (<3)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm: Shanan

    I just picked up a copy of Vegan Brunch so . . . .gravy! Navy bean, smoked almond and mushroom. It’s been 17 years since I’ve had anything even resembling gravy. So, this is a big deal.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm: Tiana

    Holy lord, I am so glad I live in LA. Now I can actually try things I see on the internet! (Does not happen when you live in rural Ohio.) I am DEFINITELY going to be trying the vegan Big Mac at Doomie’s.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm: Regan

    I am excited to make vegan cheesecake, I am an avid lover of cheesecake, but have yet to try any vegan versions! This is going on my to do list for sure!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm: Shannin

    I think I really need to hop on the Southshore to head to Chicago for that cookie dough milkshake.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:53 pm: Cory

    The Dumpling squash is something I do all the time. Love it. My wife just ordered vegan cupcakes take over the world. I can’t wait to get it and try some recipes out!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:53 pm: Leah S-B

    I must try coconut whipped cream this year! Yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:53 pm: Rosalie

    Caulipots are happening in my kitchen in 2012 FO SHO! I have had that bookmarked in AFR forever.

    (PS I am in love with Appetite for Reduction, it makes my “New Years detox/healthy eating plan” actually fun since there’s all this great stuff to cook and eat.)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:54 pm: Chools

    I needed a new pan and saw the Cuisinart Green Gourmet Skillet, it looks good. Showed it to ‘the boss’ and she’s maybe going to get me one for my birthday next month. It’s even on special offer on Amazon so maybe there will be another present as well!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:54 pm: Alicia MacLean

    I look forward to trying garden tomatoes…in my new dehydrator! My uncle (in law) just told me how they’re da bomb dehydrated, and as I just received a dehydrator for my bday, GAME ON!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:54 pm: Hannah Joy Curious

    Coconut flour is top of the shopping list for the next trip to the food co-op as this household contains a hardcore veganized coconutter (previous SAD eater who embraced all things vegan through love, cakes and discovering that portobello mushrooms made awesome burger stand-ins through this site!). As for the iPad, it is often in the kitchen, unsurprisingly on a PPK page!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:55 pm: Anna

    Massaged Kale Salads: I treat myself to such a salad at a Veggie Grill near my home regularly, I’m in love with the flavor and nutrition! And, using the recipes posted on PPK 100, I look forward to making them at home!

    I tried soaked cashews #1 in the Mac & Shews (YUM) and now I use them for everything–my own queso, mock alfredo sauce, etc…Amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:55 pm: Benji

    I’m on a ‘soaked cashew’ kick at the moment. The one thing I occasionally crave / miss as a vegan is cheese. And not even fancy cheese, just cheese in general – I thought I’d never be able to have a convincing Mac and Cheese ever again. So when I made ‘Mac and Shews’ the other night, I was blown away by it. The soaked cashew recipes do such a good job of creating a cheesy taste and texture I’m not even going to miss cheese anymore.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:55 pm: Lindsey

    I’m super interested in trying the broth bag. That sounds awesome.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:56 pm: Pam

    I recently moved to Milwaukee, and the cookie dough shake at the Chicago Diner in Boystown is AMAZING! I thought I would never eat a shake again! It’s fortunate that I have to travel for an hour and a half to get there, or I would have to buy new pants.

    I’ve been really wanting to start venturing into desserts, because it’s my least experienced vegan baking area, and because desserts are friend catchers! I look forward to finding many new delicious recipes through my hero, Isa. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:56 pm: Erin

    I loved the massaged kale salad I made for lunch this week. Kale, jalapenos, roasted red pepper and tahini lemon dressing! I’d never had a kale salad before, but man, I will definitely be having them in the future! It was delicious.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:56 pm: Lauren

    I loved making my own vegan candy bars this Halloween! Fork and Beans had excellent recipes. And thanks for sharing V.K. Rees’ photography; this is gorgeous.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:57 pm: Ally

    I have tried “#37) OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese” and it was WONDERFUL! Now it is one of my regular recipes to cook.

    Also, I can’t wait to try chia seeds…I have a mini-jar full that I now know what to do with thanks to that post!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:57 pm: Kelly

    I received a Tofu Xpress for Christmas. I LOVE IT.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:57 pm: Hope

    I want to try the vegan Cadbury eggs, the cookie dough shake @ Chicago Diner, vegan cheesecake (with regular pantry ingredients), hand pies, cast iron pan, and devilled eggs!! Sounds yummy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:58 pm: Declan

    Puffy Pillow Pancakes are AWESOME!! Also I love the alliteration :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:58 pm: Priscilla

    I am super intrigued by the Vegusto cheese! It looks so yummy and not as processed as a lot of the vegan cheeses out there these days. I am also planning to get me a copy of the Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian. Thanks for the list; it was a fun read!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:59 pm: Irene

    I want to try that vegan big mac. It’d be awful/wonderful at the same time.

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:59 pm: maria

    hard to choose but since i have been meaning to try using soaked cashews in recipes for ages i am definitely putting that at the top of the list for this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 7:59 pm: Emily

    Well, there are so many good choices-but I really want to try peanut flour, keep up with chickpea magazine, and futz around more with the slow cooker in my apartment. And the avocado masher!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Beth

    I wanna try the Skittles Juice, but can’t find a recipe for it anywhere! HALP!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Caitlin

    I too loved the massaged kale salads!!! Also tried the brulee grapefruit, and it was delicious…I’ve read this list about seven times and it’s full of wonderful things to try! Next up is my own version of the avocado tacos from Seabirds and the OhSheGlows butternut squash mac and cheese. I hope I speak on behalf of all your readers when I say THANK YOU for all the hard work assembling the list…it definitely made me a) hungry and b) excited to cook!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Linda

    I really want to try one of the mushroom grow-at-home kits!! I work with fungi but none of them are this tasty :) I also look forward to trying to make my own chocolate bars… I haven’t had any sort of chocolate bar (other than, y’know, a bar of dark chocolate) since I went vegan three years ago!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Leslie

    Oooooh, vegan cheesecake please!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Bev

    I tried and loved vegan cheesecake recently (loving the pumpkin cheesecake, thanks Asa!), and this year I’m going for Vegusto cheese, and vegan Creme Eggs, and all the new Vegannaise flavors, and falafel nachos and just being the most well fed vegan out there! Who says eating vegan is boring? Pfft!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Tara

    I’ve been dying to make something with curry and I think Isa’s Broccoli Curry Udon is just the thing I need. And anything from Vegan Brunch :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm: Jessie

    This year I loved the corn chowder and I am excited to give the coconut flour a try for baking sounds yummy!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm: Malinda

    I was really excited to see Down To Earth Fertilizer on the list because I want to start gardening. Unfortunately, no stores in my area carry any of their products.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm: Kristen

    #54 Sweet & Sara marshmallows. I buy the big 2 lb bag of marshmallows that I say I will use for baking, but really I just snack on them when I make dinner.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm: Joanne

    I look forward to trying grilled kale, pinterest and beet burgers!!!!!!!! There’s so much good food I have yet to try. I have never been much of a cook but am starting to develop a love for it. Great list! (crossing fingers to win)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm: Lily

    I can’t wait to pick up a copy of Kansha. I’ve been meaning to make more Japanese food at home, and this seems like the perfect excuse to add another cookbook to my collection.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm: Sidhe

    We’ve tried out the soaked cashews sooooooo much this past year (The Pumpkin Cheesecake pie with pecan topping blew the socks off my meatly family at Thanksgiving), and I look forward to figuring out new and exciting ways to use them as I try to more raw (raw-er? rawr? eh.)

    Other things I NEED to try out – white balsamic vinegar (I’ve heard about it, but I haven’t tried it yet), fresh yuba, and OMG the cheso recipe! In my pre-vegan days, I could scarf me some cheese like you wouldn’t believe. Happily, after being converted to faux cheese via your Cheezy Sauce recipe, I adore trying out new vegan cheese things. Yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm: kim

    Being a newbie vegan, I was worried about missing chocolate the most. Like seriously, Vegan Cadbury Eggs? I so can’t wait to try them. My vedge hubby and I can’t wait to try them. YAY!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm: Corey Z

    Grilled kale?! I hadn’t even thought of that. Awesome. Maybe I can convince my toddler that these are green chips? I’m also looking forward to trying out some of your cupcake recipes in the next month. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm: Christie N.

    I want/going to try soaked cashews this year! I love tortilla chips!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm: Giovanni

    I loved coconut flour thanks to the PPK 100. It makes pancakes and so many things just wonderful!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm: Tina

    I love the cookie dough shake!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm: Molly Lansdowne

    I am looking forward to trying lentil taco meat!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm: karen

    its hard to get kale here so i ordered on from another box scheme provider – tried massaged kale salad and it was sooo yummie :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm: Kristy

    Holy crap! I think I need to try falafel nachos for dinner. Of course, we had falafel for dinner the other night, but who’s counting?

    I also will be ordering a slow cooker soon, so vegan slow cooking is a must along with getting the Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food zine because I’ve yet to try Ethiopian.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm: Holly

    That Vegusto cheese looks pretty intense. And the Food For Lovers queso. WANT. I have a cheese problem, maybe.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:04 pm: Adrea

    Hmmm, I’m one of the many Pinterest addicts. And I have a giant bag of chia seeds in my fridge at all times. I want to try FUD nachos, coconut flour, agar agar powder ( because of vegan pie in the sky of course) and coconut whipped cream too. Annnnnd now I want some vegan dessert!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:04 pm: Jess

    I would love to try the macnocheeto burrito. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to visit Portland in the near future!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:04 pm: Gray

    We use Kombu all the time! Lots of yummy vitamins + great flavah, love it in Yudofu!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:05 pm: Jennifer F.

    I bought a Blendtec last year and it was perhaps the best investment I’ve made (except maybe for my superhero cakelette pan). I also love Sarah Kramer’s app. Vegan app that are accurate and helpful are, sadly, a rarity. I’m interested in trying a massaged kale salad, as well as doing a bit of traveling to check out some of the tasty treats you listed. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:05 pm: Jo

    I’m way pumped to start baking with coconut flour!!! Way. Pumped.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:05 pm: Laura Marie

    FAVORITES: I think my favorite new thing I’ve tried in 2011 was soaking cashews. I can’t get over the change in consistency! I’ve always just been sorta lazy about it! I plan on making cultured cashew cheese for a superbowl party next weekend. Hopefully it won’t be a disaster. I’ve also done lentil taco meat, caulipots (<3), chia seeds, and a bunch of other stuff from the list. Oh and as far as utility goes, I think a cast iron pan should be on the top 100 every year. And donut pan is bomb!
    WANTS: I'm on a sushi roll, so i think the quinoa sushi is a great idea. And after reading this I NEED to make my own candy bars. Tofu xpress piques my curiosity hardcore. And I just learned that Camera+ was a real thing…so I'll have to fork over the $2 to check that out.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:06 pm: Maria

    Massaged kale salad is great. Next up for me is grilled kale! How have I not heard of this before?

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:06 pm: Christina

    Refrigerator pickles. Why haven’t I tried them before? I have no excuse.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:06 pm: Natalie

    Tried and loved… I’ve got to go with lentil taco meat (#64). PPK’s ancho lentil tacos are amazing and have thankfully replaced my frozen TVP crumbles for an easy weekday dinner that everyone enjoys. I’d love to try Angela’s butternut squash mac ‘n cheese (#37) as I really like her site and the recipe looks great.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:07 pm: Amanda

    I have had and LOVED my Tofu Xpress for several years now, and I just got the Magic Bullet for Christmas and I’m loving it. I didn’t know fruit smoothies were going to be so addicting! And 2012 is going to be the year that I FINALLY invest in a cast iron skillet. And if I win I want my $100 to go to Cats Cradle Shelter in Fargo, ND to help with the medical care for the cats they just took in from a hoarding case this week.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:07 pm: Sara

    I can’t wait to try quinoa sushi! I am surprised I haven’t seen any yet in vancouver. #sushicapitalofNA

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm: Katie

    I have been meaning to get my hands on a copy of Papa Tofu. From everything I’ve heard, it sounds AMAZING

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm: Colleen

    I love my Tofu XPress. It’s one of those things you didn’t know you needed until you have. Say good bye to wasted paper towels and a leaning tower of random kitchen items!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm: Patricia

    Definitely most looking forward to #75, tofutti-less vegan cheesecake?! I’m salivating and I feel all fainty.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm: Anneh

    I have tried Oh She Glows’ Butternut Mac-n-cheese. It rocks.

    I think that the falafel nachos sound pretty good…maybe I’ll try that soon! Also, I’m intrigued by the sound of vegan cheesecake but have always been too lazy to try making it. My dad turns 65 in June, and that would be the perfect opportunity (note to self)!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:09 pm: Philip

    I have to confess that I’m looking forward to trying the Vegan Cadbury Eggs

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:09 pm: Ana

    I downloaded the Camera+ app and LOVE it and am looking forward to trying the beer battered avocado tacos from Seabirds!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:09 pm: Nadine

    I’m so into #31, loafs! What’s not to love? They are fun to make (kinda feel like a breadmaking genius, but not quite the ordeal making bread requires you to go through) and if done vegan and done right, good for you and delicious! Loaf love!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:09 pm: Kate

    I love chia seeds!! I’m looking for ways to incorporate them into more of my dishes. Also…I have to try the beet burgers–they sound awesome!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:09 pm: Sonia

    I look forward to making recipes from “Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food.” Infact, after I read your list, I purchased it almost immediately! I’m watching my calories, so I haven’t made anything yet, but I look forward to it!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:10 pm: Valerie

    I WISH I had a tofu XPress to play with! And I do like cupcakes better than acid-washed jeans, but I’m going to try some loaves. The link to loaves is busted, but my go-to loaf is the Banana Bread in Veganomican. I’m looking forward to trying others!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:10 pm: Andy Dufresne

    It’s hard to decide which I’m most excited to try this year, although I’m happy to report I’m already savvy to quite a few items on the list. Before I had to return it to the library, I made a few delicious meals from Vegan Diner. I’m hoping to acquire the book for my personal collection so I can try, among other recipes, the smoky soy curls, number 82!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:10 pm: rad

    caulipots! portobello’s gnocchi! vegan cheesecake! beet burgers! nom.nom.nom

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:12 pm: Michelle

    I’m excited to get my own broth bag rolling. Best idea ever! I’ve begun filling a bag this week in my freezer with scraps.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm: cody

    i just tried tempeh for the first time this year, and loved it! definitely opened up my vegan options. i had a great sandwich at the green seed food truck in houston.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm: Carrie Marchant

    Grilled Kale is the BOMB! And I’m slowly adding cast iron to my kitchen. Loving it!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm: Tina

    My boyfriend and I have been experimenting with making vegan cheeses using agar agar, and I think we’ve got a handle on it. But coconut whipped cream and vegan cheesecake are on my to do list! Thanks Isa!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm: Krystle

    I’m excited to finally get my hands on a Tofu Xpress! I look forward to having something other than cookbooks to press my tofu.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:14 pm: LS

    I’m looking forward to trying the lentil taco meat and refrigerator pickles. I’ve tried and loved massaged kale salads.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:14 pm: Lys

    I tried speculoos for the first time this years and LOVED it! Then I tried the cookie butter and I think I need cookie butter rehab. So good!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:14 pm: Simona

    I just moved to New Mexico…so I’ll try super delicious GREEN CHILI on everything!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:15 pm: Sarah

    I haven’t had a vegan cheesecake yet, so I definitely want to try one of those out. Also tempeh, which I still haven’t tried out even though I’ve been vegan for over a year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:15 pm: Moira Elizabeth

    I recently tried the Oh She Glows walnut lentil meat and absolutely LOVED it. I am also absolutely dying to get my hands on a Tofu Xpress!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:15 pm: Doran

    I am absolutely obsessed with chickpeas!!!!!! Everything from hummus to exotic chickpea dishes! I am absolutely going to check out the Chickpea Magazine! How fun and clever! Also, I have had a beet burger and it was delicious! I plan on making a version of this at home!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm: Esa

    I LOVE soaked cashews! Who can say no to raw cheezecake, or yummy dips, or cashew creme in black-bean soup?! Yum!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm: Danielle

    I bought a TofuExpress last year and let’s be honest, it is the greatest thing since Degrassi High. Whenever I use it I just want to kiss whatever bright mind came up with such a contraption. Long live tofu!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm: Sam

    While this is not nearly the healthiest/heartiest item on the PPK 100, I can’t get over my current obsession with Biscoff/Speculoos spread!! On bread, on crackers, with fruit, in spoonfulls going straight into my mouth… I WANT ALL OF THE BISCOFF.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm: Linda Royce

    Have tried and loved so many!! Lady night quinoa white bean and kale stew so awesome my four year old granddaughter ate every bite and took leftivers to school! I think she is the only vegan 4 year old in her class! Would live to win vegan with avengesnce and a size large t shirt!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:18 pm: boober

    oh my god, vegan cadbury eggs. between these and the recent vegan frapp options at starbucks my world is changing to a deeply delicious one.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:18 pm: Liz

    So I love your cook books and the only one missing from my shelf is Vegan Brunch! Brunch being one of the more tricky vegan meals I would love to have some ideas to spruce things up a bit. In terms of the 100 list, I am looking forward to buying my first Tofu Xpress very very soon. So excited. Thank you for hosting this giveaway <3

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:18 pm: Kate

    Thank you thank you thank you for not asking me to follow or like anything!

    I would like to try making number 9 – Caulipots!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:18 pm: Adam

    I am really dying to try Vegan Dad’s hot cross buns recipe! My partner and I both agree that they look and sound delicious – now I just have to work up the courage to attempt the buns. In other news, I’m on a new chia kick!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:19 pm: Katie

    I recently got a TofuXpress and it has really changed my appreciation for tofu! Next up I can’t wait to try anything at Gracias Madre,SF…of course I’d have to get to SF first but someday!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:19 pm: Stephanie

    The butternut squash mac n cheese from OSG was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Definitely one of my top favorite dishes in 2011!

    PS, Isa I’ve got your truffle brownies in the oven as we speak! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:20 pm: ndpittman

    I love OSG Butternut Squash mac and cheeze! I love hiding vegetables in comfort food. Same thing with Caulipots. Oh man, the OSG Butternut sauce on caulipots might be really good–that might be the thing to try this year coming up!! Really though, I just want to actually make a pie from VPITS.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:20 pm: amara

    I’m going to NYC in a few weeks and can’t wait to try Dunwell Donuts! When I saw this I probably got more excited about the donuts than the trip I was about to go on. The middle east is cool, but it doesn’t have vegan donuts.

    And getting to cook for someone I loved was pretty awesome while it lasted.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:20 pm: April in Autumn

    I just like seeing what everyone is giving props to! I want to try the tofu paprikas. My Hungarian grandpa made a mean chicken paprikas which was one of my favorite things when I was little. Can’t wait to get something similar.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm: Erin

    I am excited to try chia seed pudding, a yoga teacher told me about it. My partner is already in love with the Synergy kombucha with chia seeds added.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm: Jennifer

    I’ve been curious about the tofu X-press for a while. I wish there was a lending library of kitchen gadgets for those of us who fear commitment.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm: Sandi

    The PPK 100 introduced me to Pinterest. I had heard about it & was unsure about joining until I read that the PPK was officially on board with it. I love it & have gotten a lot of my friends to start pinning. Thanks Isa!!! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm: Monica

    I think this past year was the first year I ever tried Speculoos spread. Of course I loved it, what’s not to love about COOKIE SPREAD? :) And now, before I go to uni, I want to buy a VitaMix so I can blend stuff on the spot! I also still desperately need to make vegan cheesecake.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm: Carin S.

    Tried the Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes. OMG. Too too good to be true! This is now my go-to cupcake recipe!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm: Sarah

    I am starting to put chia seeds in my smoothies! Yay! I also am trying a recipe for a massaged kale salad next week. Yum town. Thanks!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:22 pm: Jen

    I can’t wait to try tofu misozuke (http://blogs.sfweekly.com/foodie/2011/12/vegan_foie_gras_in_process.php)… aka the vegan foie gras. It’s supposedly amazing, although I’ve never been tempted to try the real thing. Now to put my order in!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:22 pm: Ally H.

    I love ‘The Vegan Stoner’!

    Something I would really love is a DONUT PAN…Mmmm.

    As for the winings: Womens shirt size S, and a copy of ‘Appetite for Reduction’!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:23 pm: Megan

    I wanna try some of that skittle juice! coke and skittles, coke and skittles.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:24 pm: b.a.d.

    Squash mac-n-cheese is my favourite. But the cashew love has got me wanting more!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:24 pm: stephanie

    Coconut whipped cream and soaked cashews! c:

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:24 pm: Joan

    Well since soaking cashews and Food For Lovers Queso have already changed my life…I am anxious to try OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese because I’ve never met a Mac and Cheese I didn’t like!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:24 pm: Kristin

    I would LOVE to try the vegan big mac, but alas I’m in Texas.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:24 pm: Lili Foster

    I’ve really wanted to try a make my own chocolate bars ! I bet they would be way more yum than shop ones :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:25 pm: Mindy

    Umm… Two words. Pumpkin Cheesecake. Goodness!! Can’t wait to try it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:25 pm: Kristi

    I want to try #45 Devilled Eggs — I had a lot of delicious success with Vegan Crunk’s Vegan Deviled “Eggy” Bites: http://vegancrunk.blogspot.com/2009/07/vegan-deviled-eggs-yes-i-did.html

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:26 pm: Rusty

    I already love cashew cheeses and vegan queso of any kind and really want to try Queso for Lovers; looks tasty!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:26 pm: Mel

    My husband randomly brought home #96, the indoor mushroom grower! It totally grew mushrooms. Then we harvested them and didn’t throw out the kit, and it spontaneously grew more mushrooms! They only tasted okay, but the whole idea was cool.

    Also, vegan cheescake! Before I became vegan I never liked dairy cheesecake but I LOVE all the vegan ones I’ve made.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:26 pm: poopiebitch

    The garlic peeling thing kind of rocked my world. My house, my baby, my husband, myself… we all smelled of garlic for weeks, because I put it in EVERYTHING, because why not? It was so easy to peel! I’m really looking forward to trying quinoa sushi this year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:26 pm: Noelle

    I love beets with almost anything, so I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into a beet burger!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:27 pm: jm

    I plan on making the caulipots on Monday with Lentil loaf and mushroom gravy. YUM!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:27 pm: Sarah

    There are so many great things on the list, but I will embarrassingly admit that I’m all about the Vegan Cadbury Eggs. I’m definitely a Cadbury Vegan…

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:27 pm: Amanda

    It is on the top of my goals this year to get to NYC and eat at Dunwell!! Everytime I see their posts on Facebook/Twitter, I catch myself salivating! ;-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:27 pm: Katie Beane

    I love, love, love the cookbook Caribbean Vegan by Taymer Mason, especially the recipe for Trinidadian Doubles (just like they tasted when I was in Trinidad last year!). Cookie Dough shakes from the Chicago Diner are kind of an obsession for me. They probably what I most look forward to when planning a trip to Chi-town.

    I am really looking forward to trying Coconut Whipped Cream, and Vegan Cadbury Eggs. How decadent. Also I have purchased Kansha, by Elizabeth Andoh, but not made anything yet. Shame on me; I really need to get on that.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:27 pm: Carrie

    The yuba!! I’ve had a pack frozen in my freezer forever and I couldn’t decide what to do with it until I saw the PPK 100!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:28 pm: Laura

    I can’t wait to culture some cashew cheese! I also now *need* a tofu press and my kale is a lot more relaxed than it used to be!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:28 pm: Chubble

    I want cultured cashew cheese!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:28 pm: Sarah

    I just ordered Biscoff spread and am really excited to try it! I also cannot wait to try the vegan Cadbury Eggs… I am definitely going to order them when they are posted back on Etsy. Thanks!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:29 pm: Kate

    VEGAN CADBURY EGGS!! I am a vegan mother of 4 vegan children and I loved being able to share with them one of my favorite goodies from when I was younger, while staying true to our values. The kids loved them (and so did my husband and I)! And I loved being able to treat them with a special nostalgic treat! Easter as well as other holidays are a terrific time to celebrate new traditions not focus on what we “can’t” do anymore. We love to decorate sugar cookie “eggs” and fill easter baskets with goodies and now we can add the cadbury eggs to our growing list of traditions that make our holidays special and cruelty free! Thank you Isa!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:29 pm: Erin

    Things I’ve tried and loved: Speculoos, Obsessive Confection Disorder, Dunwell Dougnuts, hand pies, Chicago Diner shakes, the MacNoCheeto burrito, Smoky Soy Curls, Lagusta’s Chocolate of the Month club, Viva Vegan’s white seitan, FFL vegan queso … well, at least it’s not ENTIRELY sweets. :)

    I’m most looking forward to trying the Vegusto cheese I keep hearing about, but there’s lots on that list I have planned for this year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:29 pm: Ellie

    Last Easter I made Vegan Dad’s hot cross buns. They went over so amazingly that I didn’t actually get to eat one! This Easter, I’m looking forward to making an extra batch to hide just for myself!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:30 pm: jen

    Last year was the year of scratch, cast iron pans and straight-up coconut oil for everything – lip balm, face/body moisturizer, cooking… This year, what to do with kim (roasted seaweed)! And attempting an indoor only garden.
    These are added to my to-do list (and thank you!):
    5. more kale!; 12. coconut flour; 48. burmese tofu; 53. quinoa sushi – maybe with the kim?!;83. what? seriously? must try peeling garlic by not peeling it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:30 pm: Poppy

    I’m looking forward to trying lentil taco meat. I haven’t done much cooking with lentils yet and that looks really good :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:30 pm: Dianne

    I really want to try chia seeds and learn more about making vegan cheese substitutes ;-) thanks so much for an opportunity to win such wonderful prizes!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:30 pm: noe

    Massaged kale salads.. YUM!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm: Tracy

    Acorn squash & black bean empanadas!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm: diana

    coconut flour – have some sitting on the shelf and still haven’t figured out how to use it

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm: Ashley

    Love kale juiced and sauteed- need to try massaged kale salad asap!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm: Cathy

    I’m addicted to pinterest and I love using my ipad in the kitchen! I can’t wait to try the vegan cheesecake recipe.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:32 pm: Marla

    I would like to try Taymer Mason’s Caribbean Vegan cookbook for something different!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:33 pm: babette

    I love that 100 post.

    This year, I’ve tried and loved chia seeds (in puddings), vanilla beans (I made my own extract) and white balsamic vinegar (great in dressings)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:33 pm: Renee

    I tried butternut squash mac & cheese and loved it! Maybe I’ll get brave enough to try one of the tofu dishes…

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:33 pm: Rebecca

    I just got the “Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food” zine so I am looking forward to trying out some of those recipes!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:34 pm: Tamara

    I bought a tofuxpress, had and loved the vegan big mac at doomie’s, had the beer battered tacos from seabirds,read chickpea magazine, bought a slower cooker and vegan slow cooker cookbooks, got on pinterest, have camera +, and really look forward to trying to make so falafel nachos. Thanks for this giveaway and I hope I win!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:35 pm: Harriette Halepis

    Prize or no prize, you introduced me to coconut whipped cream, fork and beans blog, and Cadbury-eque eggs — so, for that alone, I thank you (and I’d love to rock that t-shirt!). :-D

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:35 pm: Brigid

    Hand pies! I so want to make hand pies next. But I have been cooking for people I love more lately and that has been wonderful, too.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:35 pm: Aislinn

    I’m asking for the tofuxpress for my birthday! I eat at least 2 pounds of tofu a week, and since I can’t devote the space in my kitchen or fridge to press it (nor can I deal with all those wet kitchen towels), I always end up eating it all floppy and watery. Then I feel sorry for myself because everyone else is having lovely chewy tofu and here I am with mushy pap…well, no longer! At least I hope not. Better ask me again in a few weeks once the gadget is in my hands.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:35 pm: Angela

    I really want to try chia seeds! I’ve found many recipes with them listed but still have yet to order some. I’m going to muster up the courage and get some online. Then I can chia seed it up!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:35 pm: Justine

    Oh, massaged kale! And I have an infant who loves black beans and chick peas … so I can’t wait to experiment on her. :) How timely, too … I was just thinking I really need a new veg cookbook. (*shutting eyes and wishing hard that the random number generator picks me*)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:36 pm: Ashley

    So many delicious things on that list! The chickpea tofu intrigues me most.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:36 pm: Laura

    My garden gave me too many cucumbers to eat, but not enough cucumbers to for-real pickle, so I did refrigerator pickles. Quick, easy, and delicious! I might just try them again this year too.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:36 pm: Audrey

    What an awesome giveaway!

    Okay, here goes: I love Tofu Xpress, Pinterest, chia seeds, agar powder, soaked cashews, green juice, and peanut flour.

    I want to try: quinoa pasta, parboiled oven fries, white balsamic, maple extract, coconut flour, partially frozen olive oil, your recipes for vegan cheesecake, a stovetop smoker, green gourmet skillet, soaked cashews, dumpling squash…and a lot of other stuff!

    I have tried (since the list went up): the technique to peel garlic, the VegNews marinated tofu sandwich, and the idea for freezing ginger.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:36 pm: eve k

    Refrigerator pickles!!! Cause I am kinda lazy.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:37 pm: Stacy

    LOVE soaked cashews for cooking, and really want to try the lentil taco meat. There can never be enough tacos in my life.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:37 pm: Ailise

    Caulipots! Helped me change my non-cauliflower eating husband into a Cauliflower lover! Thank you!!! :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:37 pm: kim_chic

    I don’t have an iPad for (#100 iPad in the kitchen) but I’m very glad my iPhone has a decent cover (I dropped a little tahini on it). GoVegan App’s recipe for Original Pepper Tofu Jerky was loved by even the most carnivorous kid in my family. I have to make more for the backyard camping outing this weekend! Happy campers!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:38 pm: Eve Love

    wouhou! that’s a nice giveaway!!
    I already shared the PPK top 100 on facebook as soon as it came out
    My personal classics: # 1 – 11 – 32 – 64 – 71 – 73 – 78 – 80 – 83 – 95 – 98
    What i’ld like to try soon: # 4 – 5 – 9 – 12 – 14 – 20 – 84 – 88 – 91- 96

    really hope i get to win this.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:38 pm: H.N. James

    I made brownies with chia seeds that were ok (but not so OMG AMAZING as the Raspberry Truffle brownies you posted recently! I got rave reviews for those), but I am definitely looking forward to making the OhSheGlows butternut squash mac & cheese!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:38 pm: Dawn

    I have had, loved and nominated for the ppk 100 – soy free vegenaise. Such a cool thing to finally be able to have chickpea salad like the rest of the cool kids. Also loved the coconut whipped cream. Really want to get a donut pan. BTW, cool giveaway. Thanks :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:38 pm: Kelli

    I would love to do #98 Cooking for Someone You Love. Or, I would like someone to do this for me! I am the cook of the family, but my husband and I have talked a lot about how much we enjoy cooking together, on the rare occasions that it happens. This year, I’d like to cook for someone I love and WITH someone I love :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:39 pm: Alex

    I love this- and I want to try and make things from the vegan slow cooker! It shall keep me from only eating vegan junk this cold, cold winter.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:39 pm: Beckah

    Massaged Kale salads, for the win. Tried and love!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:40 pm: Lynn

    I really, really want some dulce de leche RIGHT NOW.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:40 pm: helbury

    I need to try those smoky soy curls from Julie Hasson’s Vegan Diner.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:41 pm: Ashlee

    What an awesome giveaway!!

    I love The Vegan Stoner and have been having fun with Chia Seeds. But, I’m really looking forward to trying the Vegan Cadbury Eggs!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Rachel

    Salt and Pepper bark! YUM. That caught my eye when I looked over the list :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Kim

    I have been eating my way through a bag of the new formula of S & S marshmallows for the past couple of weeks, and they are so freakin’ good. I want to try to make the lentil taco meat, and the hot cross buns, and just about everything else!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Laura

    #71 agar-agar powder hit my radar in 2008 through Mary Jane Butters and her “Chill-Over Powder”. Great stuff! A bit of a learning curve, but sooo much better than gelatine and so much more stable in summer recipes. I also have been cooking with cast iron since 1976 and substituting lentils for hamburger in tacos and sloppy joes (love your recipe BTW… great for a crowd). Vegan definitely a cuisine and I love it. Looking forward to trying more stuff in the PPK 100…

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Jessica

    BEET BURGERS!! And anything with beets really! The candied ones you put on FB the other day were delish!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Stephanie

    A few things that I’m excited to try are chia seeds (getting some tomorrow), Food for Lovers Queso, and the OhSheGlows recipe for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese!

    What I have on the list and love is the Magic Bullet, so great for dressing and for grinding flax seeds, and the Tofu Xpress. These two machines have made me so happy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Heather Stranberg

    I live in KC so I’m lucky to be able to have Fud nachos pretty often, and they really are amazing! But what I absolutely cannot wait to try are the vegan cream eggs. Cadbury cream eggs have been my all time favorite candy my whole life.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm: Jessica

    I really want to try out a cast iron pan.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:43 pm: Blair G.

    I am so excited to try vegan cadburry eggs! Freakin’ sweet!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:43 pm: Amy Lu

    I love all of the pies I’ve made from Vegan Pie in the Sky: boston cream pie! key lime pie! blueberry cheesecake! I had no idea what agar powder was before I got this cookbook and it is truly amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:43 pm: Beth

    Camera + for iPhone! After reading your post about it and how it has a food setting I knew I had to try it out.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:43 pm: Mia

    Sounds like I need to try out Massaged Kale salad! & I want to try chia seeds, but I keep on spacing out whenever I’m at a store that might have them.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:43 pm: Kelley

    Grateful for the suggested Avocado masher!!! I will also mention my desire to try the Coconut flour, but stop there otherwise my post will be too long. The PPK 100 is a great year in review!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:44 pm: Chels

    Soaked cashews have blown my mind.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:44 pm: Seitansaiddance

    I love Three Bros. I go there with om nb I friends, but we all srestha order from the vegan menu. Amazing.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:44 pm: Angey

    I started juicing, inspired by the doc “Fat,Sick, and Nearly Dead”, and feel soooo great. I didn’t realize just how few fruits and veggies I was eating. I’m not fasting, just adding lots of fresh juice. My skin and hair has never looked better!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:46 pm: chyk

    cookie dough milkshakes sounds delish

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:46 pm: Bill

    I’m going to have to give grilled kale a try this year. We always have tons of kale from our garden. Also, looking forward to getting a cast iron pan this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:46 pm: sterhymeswtree

    I need a tofu xpress!

    Things you didn’t mention that are AWESOME: spraying chalkboard spray on your mason jars so you can write down what’s in them and when you put it there…and then wash it off easily! (featured on the broth bag entry)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:47 pm: carole winn

    i love the vegan taco “meat”! and lots of other your stuff!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:47 pm: Vivienne

    OhSheGlows butternut squash mac ‘n’ cheese! I can’t WAIT to try it. Picking just one thing was hard… There’s so many things I can’t wait to try! And so many revelations that I had this year that I loved–caulipots, Magic Bullet, and more. Oh, such a good year to be vegan!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm: Connie

    I recently purchased “Appetite for Reduction” and although everything I’ve tried so far is awesomely delicious….I think I am in love with “Pasta Los Angeles”…….it has all the flavors I love….YOU ARE AWESOME!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm: Looloo

    HAH GEEZ. I bookmarked so many things from that 100 list. Mostly recipes I want to try soon and places to eat when we travel. I updated my Amazon wish/buy later list with things that aren’t easy for me like white choc chips (the newish vegan BF is so sad without these in his regular life) and vanilla beans.

    BUT THE SINGLE GREATEST ITEM, the item I literally just did because I make 36-odd cupcakes a week, dip into my cambro of premixed dry ingredients for my cupcake recipes! I was FUMING that I hadn’t thought of this already. This saved me so much mental clutter, such a wonderful tip to get through a constantly cooking life! It even revitalised my drive to take the minutes here and there to have premixed salad dressings/ sauces etc in the fridge for quick meals later. Hooray!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm: dooley.noted

    ooo..i miss KC so much, i’m going to require a visit back to FUD this year..

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm: Rachel Wechsler

    I’m looking forward to trying Dunwell Donuts! I saw a video about the business and the donuts look delicious! I also love to support local businesses so I will be making my way to their shop soon :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm: Erin

    Boy oh boy. I’m all over massaged kale salads and I hope to acquire a Tofu Xpress this year! Wish I could try the vegan dishes mentioned at the selected restaurants…but gotta find a reason to get out of Texas!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:50 pm: Marie

    I just recently went vegan. I am having a blast cooking with all these crazy new ingredients I was always too scared to try. For example I had never had fresh pomegranate, fresh mango, bok choy, quinoa, chickpea flour, almond milk, soy icecream, tofu etc. The list is long. My favorite thing so far is Isa’s Fronch toast from Vegan with a vengeance. WAY better than normal old french toast. I am looking forward to trying seitan (I have only had tofu and tempeh) in the future.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:51 pm: Libby

    Thanks for doing this! I’ve tried #98 a bunch (cooking for someone I love), but it’s a good reminder to do this more for sure. Also, I’ll have to try your tip for the iPad in the kitchen. I usually just leave it to chance.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:53 pm: mary

    The cultured Cashew Cheese. I have really enjoyed using cashews in my cooking and this looks like a tastey way to kick it up a little.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:53 pm: Nick K.

    Sent this list to my ma and she told me I absolutely must make the OhSheGlows Mac. Very much hope to get around to it in the next week or so!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:54 pm: Alyson

    i love using frozen ginger and look forward to making beet burgers!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:54 pm: MollyG

    There are too many in the 100 that I have tried and loved or desperately want to try to count. But I’ll choose a simple one: Frozen Ginger. peeling it, chopping it into manageable pieces and freezing it right when I get home from grocery sopping makes adding a hunk to my green juice (or curry) super easy! Just like fresh without the hassle!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:54 pm: Joelle

    Oh defiantly looking forward to trying the butternut mac N Cheese. Gooey squashy goodness is one of the best goddnesses out there!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:55 pm: kristin z.

    garden tomatoes! my boyfriend and i planted 30 pots last year. SUCH A GOOD IDEA. heirloom tomatoes that i grew myself? yes please!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:55 pm: Sheridan

    I have tried and love Oh She Glows Butternut Squash Mac n’ Cheeze! It’s to die for. Also, I look forward to making my own mixes this year – I really need to just do it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:56 pm: Sarah Gordon

    I love everything on PPK! But, I always use the coconut whipped cream for anything deserving of whipped cream and I can’t wait to try the Falafel Nachos!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm: Aubade

    I want to try massaged kale b/c I never eat it but this seems like a way to make it that me & my family might actually love. I also need to try camera+ for iphone, since my camera was stolen and I still don’t have a new one. Dunwell donuts and vegan cadbury eggs are sounding pretty good right now too.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm: Pamela

    There’s a gal here in Portland named Heidi who makes really wonderful cheeses that were previously only available when you could find her at the various farmers markets. BUT, now she’s at Whole Foods, as well as Food Fight, maybe more places, I’m not sure, so I want to try all of her cheeses on, well, everything!!

    Oh, and I need to get cracking on tempeh. It’s not my favorite so I suppose I just haven’t found the right recipe for me!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm: Danielle

    It must not be chia seeds since I bought some and haven’t used them yet! I’m pretty darn excited about the OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese, but I haven’t managed to make it yet.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm: Emily

    I LOVE caulipots and am crazy in love with the idea of the Magic Bullet. I also plan to overcome my (rational) fear of “cheese” in desserts and try out the PPK pumpkin cheesecake.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm: Jadah

    What a great list. I’d love to try the squash mac n cheese, coconut whip cream and soy yogurt. I loved the magic bullet for making baby food, I blend green smoothies daily and blendtec is the best, iPad in the kitchen is perfect for reading recipes and playing some Pandora while you cook. I wish the dilly dumplings made it to the top 100 because that soup melted in my mouth. PPK rocks!

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm: amy J

    Steamed Seitan from Vive Vegan rox my sox :) Especially the chorizo

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:58 pm: Zach

    Clearly, falafel nachos are a thing that should be enjoyed by everyone. I gotta get me some of that.

  • January 27, 2012 at 8:58 pm: amey

    i am so in love with your vegan 100, Isa. It totally rules. there are so many things on there that I totally love, and also so many things I still have yet to try. For some reason, I have yet to get a tofu Xpress, even though people love them so much. I never press my tofu, because I am too lazy. But, I’m totally on board with iPad in the Kitchen. OH YEAH. In fact, my iPad is hanging out in the kitchen right now.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:01 pm: Susan

    I want to try caulipots and lentil taco meat. I just bought a head of cauliflower and was wondering what to make with it. I like it straight up, but I don’t think that will fly with the hubby. Lentil taco meat sounds awesome too! Can’t wait to try it.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:01 pm: Lindsay

    I have a student who swears by the power of beets, so I’m looking forward trying the beet burgers. Also, my partner has never had devilled eggs and, as a vegan Southerner, I consider that somewhere close to blasphemy. Really.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:03 pm: Mary

    2011 was the year of speculoos, and I’m glad I caught on! My life will never be the same.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:03 pm: Megan

    I cant pick just one thing I loved on the list, but my top three are definitely Speculoos (when will TJs get it back in stock?), the steamed seitan from VV (that my omni bf LOVES), and massaged kale salads (that I got my mom hooked on). And now, so many good things to try in the new year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:03 pm: Kerianne

    Would love this!!

    It’s really hard to choose but it’s my goal to get a Vitamix or Blendtec this year! I also love Massaged Kale Saladas….mmmm.

    Thank you.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:03 pm: Tereza

    CHICKPEA TOFU! I’m gonna plotz.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:03 pm: Chris

    I made butternut squash mac and cheese a couple weeks ago and it was fantastic. I also love that how to peel garlic in 10 seconds video.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:04 pm: Nichole

    I would love to try the Chickpea Tofu! I can not stand the taste of tofu (which makes this lifestyle a little rough). Now that I know this exists-I’m totally going for it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:04 pm: carmel

    already shared the ppk100 on fb.. i love it! this year i am determined to become friends with brussel sprouts.. or at least polite acquaintances. and thanks to you, i’m going to go check out the flan at gracias madre very soon- yay! xo from san fran ^_^

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:05 pm: Tamara

    I made caulipots the other night and liked it a lot…looking forward to trying the massaged kale (among other things.)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:05 pm: Jim Countryman

    Oh my! coconut Whipped Cream!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:06 pm: Emily

    Skittles juice because I’m a candy addict that is doing my best to eat healthy and chia seeds. A chic at my work is always talking about them. It’s probably about time I find some.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:06 pm: Christina

    I tried so many great, new things last year! I soaked cashews, made pickles in the fridge, steamed tons of veggies, made my own baking mixes. I was awed and inspired by Chickpea Mag, VK Rees Photography, The Vegan Stoner. It was a great year of vegan experiences and experiments for me. When I saw the 100 list posted earlier this month, it gave me the final nudge I needed to join Pinterest. (So basically the hours I’ve spent repinning and liking and browsing is all YOUR fault!)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:06 pm: vegetalion

    I FINALLY got to try Speculoos this year, and it was even better than I’d imagined. But what I’m most excited about… the vegan Cadbury eggs. They look incredible!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:07 pm: Kellie

    I am definitely going to try those vegan Cadbury eggs, and the Sweet & Sara’s marshmallows. I’m also intrigued by the idea of coconut whipped cream and eating chia seedswhen I’m feeling adventurous, I may have a vegan field day with all these ideas.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:07 pm: lana

    new year cannot wait to try list:
    soy-free veganaise!
    coconut whipped cream
    falafel nachos
    Dunwell Donuts <– my son picked that one!!!!

    and we will always love the lentil taco meat!!! mmmmmm!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:07 pm: BluePlasticStraw

    I bought stuff to make the Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese and massaged kale salad after reading about them in the PPK 100. I have so much stuff bookmarked for the future too like falafel nachos, chia pudding, and grilled kale is so intriguing! Also, I gotta make one of those cheesecakes sometime soon.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:07 pm: Desdemona

    I’m excited to make some chickpea tofu, because A. I know a few people with soy issues, and B. it sounds like a fun way to while away the afternoon and trash the kitchen while trying Something Completely New and Different. (Also, the falafel nachos made me slap myself in the head and yell “DOH!” like Homer Simpson for never having thought of it before. Sheer, total, mind-blowing genius.)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:08 pm: Genevieve

    Frozen Ginger (#59)seems like a very clever idea!! My mom is actually doing it!!
    I will start doing it this year :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:10 pm: Brandon

    I sooo want to try Food for Lovers Queso. I asked for some for Christmas and didn’t get any. :(

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:10 pm: casey b.

    New vegan here & I’ve made vegan cookies, cupcakes & pies, all of which were great. Next is the vegan cheesecake!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:10 pm: Sylvia Gonzalez

    Veganaise…and looking forward to vegan cheese cake!!!

    love love love everything but I make your pancakes from Vegan with A Vengeance almost every weekend. It’s rainy? pancakes! It’s Saturday? Pancakes! Football today? Pancakes! you are awesome, thank you!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:11 pm: Ashley A.

    I am thinking a massaged kale salad, to be healthy AND delicious, of course, as all things vegan should be. And dun-well donuts, because who doesn’t love donuts?

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:11 pm: Jennifer

    I need to try that Food for Lovers Vegan Queso immmmmmmmmediately.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:12 pm: Katrina

    I am totally loved the massaged kale salads! Made one last night from the link you posted on the PPK 100! YUM!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:12 pm: P-J

    I look forward to trying the magic bullet. I’ve thought it was all hype, but now that my food processor broke this morning I’ll have to give this baby a whirl!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:13 pm: Corrie

    I have grown my own mushrooms in the past and want to try that again this year. I’m in Chicago and need to try that cookie dough shake!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:13 pm: Shawnee Scott

    Pinterest!! I have finally found a proper online home for all of my Vegan awesomeness!! And I am dying to try Beer Battered Avocado Tacos!! ooh, AND Falafel Nachoes!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:13 pm: Nina

    I’m going to have to try the Quinoa Sushi! I love quinoa and it looks amazing!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:14 pm: Yasmin

    The marinated tofu sandwich–tried and loved. Made it twice so far. It’s a great fast, basic recipe.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:14 pm: Jen

    Oh, geez. I can’t read. I thought you were looking for new ideas!! My first from the PPK100 was the massaged kale salad. Super good! It’s gonna become a regular item in my eating rotation.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:15 pm: Jeanee

    Awesome giveaway! My jaw dropped whenI saw #70… Falachos?!? Goodness gracious! I’m looking forward to trying that!

    I’m tweeting Post Punk Kitchen 100. People gotta see the!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:15 pm: Meg

    #80–Whole spices all the way!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:15 pm: Buddy Batcat

    I am a cat whose hoomans are fully veganized – i.e. they’re both complete tofu robots – and, occasionally, they try and feed me some of their cheese-like foods. My reason for being is cheese, from the juice of the square black and white animal known as the moo. Of the two soy cheeze strands deposited on the edge of my bowl, I ate one and couldn’t face the ignominy of another. Therefore I have high hopes for that Food for Lovers Queso. Arriba I say! Bring it on vegan hoomans!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:16 pm: Mari Vega

    I am literally addicted t the cauliflower mashed potatoes from Apetite for Reduction! Can’t wait to try some delicious pie recipes, though…

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:16 pm: Linda

    # 70 – Falafel Nachos – two of my favorite foods in one dish! I will try it this weekend.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:17 pm: katherine stewart

    Haven’t tried grill kale yet but I love massaged kale salads! Vanilla beans ROCK too!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:18 pm: Sarah

    Chia seeds have recently replaced flax seeds as my “sprinkle-on” of choice. I’m also really excited to try the 10-second garlic peeling, as someone who labors endlessly over such a dumb task!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:18 pm: brandon

    61) I was in chicago yesterday and wanted to check out the Chicago Diner but didn’t have time. booooo. place looks amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:18 pm: Meagan

    O man so many great things on this list! Peanut flour by far is my favorite but I’ve become a bit obsessed with it and am forcing myself to take a break from it haha. I also love my magic bullet, steamed veggies, coconut flour, and chia seeds. I really want to try speculoos, the donut pan, making my own “burgers” and quinoa sushi!

    BTW I love your “Vegan cookies take over the cookie jar” and would love to try “Appetite for Reduction”!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:18 pm: Alex

    #25 Dunwell Donuts. NEED to try them

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:19 pm: Robyn

    I love Ancient Harvests Quinoa Pasta. I only recently fell in love with it. While I am not gluten intolerant, I still feel a need to seriously cut back on all of the gluten in my life.

    I already have the ingredients to try out the Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese. I recently made the recipe from Blissful Bites and am hoping that this new recipe is just as good or even better.

    And I can’t wait for soy-free veganaise!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:19 pm: Kelly

    Caulipots! And I’m waiting for Easter to try out the Vegan Cadbury Eggs.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:20 pm: K. Velis Turan

    I when through each one of you 100 and have already purchased and received my Tofu Press. I brought some Chai seeds. I enjoyed many of your Big 100 and will be following through on other items. ‘m a big fan and I never bother to write or enter things like this but I want you to know how you have changed my life with your great cookbooks. I have almost all of them. Please keep on blobbing. Thanks for all you do.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:21 pm: Kati B

    I have tried coconut flour, peanut flour, and the tofu xpress and I love them all! I really want to try the butternut squash mac n cheese recipe though..maybe this weekend!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:21 pm: Lara

    Ayyeeee! This is great. Looking forward to trying cashew cheeses, broiled grapefruit, and Kansha! And I just tried Lagusta’s chocolates because of the list.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:21 pm: janet @ the taste space

    I tried Oh She Glow’s Squash Mac and Cheese because of the top 100! I also want to try the chickpea tofu!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:22 pm: Kara

    Love: Skittle juice! (also known as, the easiest way to get my picky two year old to eat his veggies).
    Want: Coconut whipped cream. Yummm….

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:22 pm: Laura Buell

    Deviled eggs- how fun is that? I didn’t even think I missed eggs until I saw that picture, trying that one out for sure!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:22 pm: Leah

    chickpea flour, oat flour, spelt flour, and rice flour!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:23 pm: Geneviève

    oooooh vegan Cadbury eggs – that’s what i want here in cold cold montréal! cheers, ppk!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:23 pm: Danielle P.

    Massaged kale salad! My favourite recipe includes avocado and nooch, which makes it all creamy and delicious. *drool*

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:23 pm: Katie

    I’m a student at UCLA and I’m finally getting the chance to go to Doomie’s for the first time on Sunday. Can’t wait to try out the Big Mac…it looks amazing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:24 pm: Natalie

    I discovered soy curls and the joy of soaked cashews last year. How did I ever get by without them?! I look forward to making the butternut squash mac and cheese and those beet burgers.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:24 pm: Heather

    Love chia seeds!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:25 pm: Theresa

    We vacationed in Kansas City, MO this summer and the Nachos at FUD were amazing! Seriously! Totally worth the trip! :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:26 pm: Phyllis

    In 2010 I found out how easy and fun it is to use the iPad and the ppk website (#100). I’ve made so many recipes and marked off a few faves… quinoa white bean and kale stew, rustic winter stew over polenta, and more! Thank you Steve Jobs and Isa!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:27 pm: Diana Guay

    I’ve done a lot of vegan cooking lately. I adore the vegan cookie cookbook, they’ve ALL been a hit to my non-vegan friends. And I must say, one of my favorite finds this year was soaked cashew “cheese.” I don’t know if I’d define my end result as cheese, but it made for an excellent spread for crackers or bread.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:27 pm: Maya

    I love love love using chia seeds! I add them to my smoothies to make them thicker and add to the fiber/nutrient content! I cannot WAIT to order some vegan cadburry eggs. I am so freaking excited about them!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:27 pm: Lauren

    I’m reeeeeeally wanting to try out a vegan cheesecake! I hope it will really win over my husband; cheesecake is his favorite! :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:27 pm: Michelle C.

    Massaged kale salad. Can you believe I’ve never had one?!?!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:28 pm: Anna

    I tried and loved caulipots, pinterest, and chia pudding. I also went from eating the same meals every day and hating cooking for years to buying four of your books in December, becoming addicted to them and enjoying making and eating new recipes! Looking forward to trying vegan cadbury eggs.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:28 pm: Heidi

    I love love love the Radical Rueben from the Chicago Dinner. I recently moved to Madison from Chicago….so eager to discover some good eats here. I also adore the Red Curry soup from PPK…yummy! Oooh I am going to make that tonight!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:28 pm: Kim M.

    Hmmm, well I have tried OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese, and I LOVED it. I also just put myself on a waiting list (!?!?!) to get a Pinterest account. What I’d really like to try is that dulce de leche and speculoos! I might need to add that Weekly Vegan Menu to my reading material. Oh, and I really want a donut pan.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:28 pm: Raegan

    I love love love my magic bullet! :D

    (Also.. I am now inspired to make my own vegan creme eggs. I bet even the mistakes are tasty.)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:30 pm: Rachel

    I’m moving to NYC and I’m looking forward to trying Dunwell Donuts! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:30 pm: reilly

    I’ve started making Skittles Juice, or green smoothies, to boost my energy before a workout. I’m training to be a firefighter and the smoothies make getting all the calories and nutrients I need easy.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:31 pm: joanna

    I recently tried butternut squash lasagna which i put together at the spur of a moment for a vegan friend. I would love to try making rye bread!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:31 pm: Miet

    I love the butternut squash mac & cheese recipe from Oh She Glows. In fact, I’m making it right now!
    I also discovered kale last year, and I’m loving it. I have it at least once a week now.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:31 pm: Jo O.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on a Tofu xpress. Although Veganomicon does make a wonderful tofu-pressing weight :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:33 pm: Cari R.

    Ok, no lie, I was totally eating a Cadbury Creme Egg while reading about the giveaway. THEN I saw a source for Vegan Cadburys!! I am going to try some very, very soon. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:33 pm: Kelly Butler

    I am very interested in trying coconut flour this year

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:34 pm: Leigh

    I hadn’t thought much about deviled eggs since going vegan (maybe because I live far from my extended family, who made them a mainstay at holidays), but since reading this, I have been craving them like crazy, and I’m definitely going to make them soon!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:35 pm: Mandi

    Speculoos! A lovely PPKer sent me some in a swap, and it was such a challenge to not just eat the whole jar at once. I loved a bunch of other things on there, but seriously…what is better than speculoos?

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:36 pm: BettyG

    Olive oil pie crusts are what great quiches are made of. For the future though, chickpea tofu is like madlibs where every blank is something I want to eat!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm: Nolwenn

    Hi !
    I finally tried Tabasco hot sauce… three different ones. And I just love it.
    And Vegenaise. Even my kids like it :D

    Thanks a lot for the giveaway !

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm: Sabrina

    Definitely glad for the magic bullet and would love some fresh yuba!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm: Heidi

    #37 Oh she glow’s mac and cheese. Tried it. loved it, will make it again!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm: Jessica

    I guess I am late to the party. Better late than never!!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on Vegusto Cheese and super psyched about vegan Cadbury eggs. Sweet and Sara have the best marshmallows, so happy you included them. I have my cookbook picked out…..and kitty charity, just in case….

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:39 pm: Jill

    I’m excited to try Vegan Slow Cooking! I got a slow cooker for Christmas and have been looking for good recipes to use it for. I also want to try the grilled kale. I love kale, and this new way of eating it sounds amazing.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:39 pm: Olivia

    How to make your own candy bars, doughnuts, and coconut whipped cream!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:40 pm: Jean

    41) Anise/fennel seed mix . I love new flavour accents- it’s the cheapest and simplest way to charge up any cooking.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:42 pm: Leigh

    Speculoos is the jam! Although it’s not vegan, I’ve been making ice cream with Biscoff spread and cookies and it blows everybody’s mind.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:42 pm: Steffenie

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE chia for so many things!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:43 pm: Eunice

    I’m gonna rediscover the magic bullet!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:43 pm: Elizabeth

    Handpies – family loved them. So yummy and handy too!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:44 pm: Elyse

    I’m really excited about trying the vegan Cadbury eggs and the Tofu xpress!
    I already love caulipots, chia pudding and my faithful Blendtec.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:48 pm: Cindy Buteyn

    I love, Oh She Glows butternut squash Mac and cheeze. I also think Vegsn Stoner’s artwork is awesome. There are way too many things on the list I haven’t tried, and can’t wait to try. I have to say grilled kale intrigues me. I love my kale!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:48 pm: Mina

    I want to try the beet burgers and when I first saw the list, I immediately purchased camer+ for iphone.

    Mina

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:50 pm: katy

    I would love to try a Cookie Dough Milkshake, Chloe Coscarelli’s Pumpkin Tiramisu and Coconut Whipped Cream. Clearly, based on my choices, I’ve got a really big sweet tooth.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:50 pm: Jennifer B

    It is a tossup between the vegan Cadbury eggs or the coconut whipped cream. Maybe a mash up is in order. :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:51 pm: Annie

    I look forward to trying the vegan cheesecake. My mother was a professional baker, her specialty is Cheesecake, and my husband is a chef. Every Memorial Day they have a cheesecake bake off. I am going to enter with this recipe this year. Luckily, my 1 year old son will be the judge and he loves vegan food — and his mama. ; )

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:51 pm: Laura V.

    I have been waiting to make the pumpkin cheesecake! Other things i have really been wanting to try: peanut flour, maple extract, and falafel nachos! Yummy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:52 pm: Steph

    Falafel Nachos?! How had this never occurred to me before? The while list is great but I think that is what I need to try most of all

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:52 pm: AN

    I know it sounds kind of lame but I’m actually excited to find out about the ginger thing. I live on campus at my college and cook a lot for myself and found an Asian store that sells a huge bag of fresh ginger root for super cheap. I’ve been wanting to buy it but can’t possibly use that much ginger before it goes bad and instead will either forego the ginger in my food or will be one of those annoying shoppers that breaks off a tiny piece of ginger root. Now I don’t have to do that anymore!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:52 pm: Sarah Jane Husemann-Gliss

    I absolutely must get some of those vegan Cadbury eggs!
    Something I’ve definitely missed – I will have to ask for a million because I love sharing vegan goodies and turning non-vegans on to tasty alternatives that are better than the “norm.”

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:54 pm: MEagan

    I love chia seeds! They are an awesome thickener in vegan chiles and currys. I am dying to try Angelas butternut squash mac and cheese and to bake something with peanut flour, as soon as I can find a store that sells it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:54 pm: Lindsey Carlile

    Chia seeds rule! <3

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:54 pm: Ashley

    I’m insanely excited about trying out coconut whipped cream! I only wish I had thought of it to top my pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:54 pm: Erin

    I’m excited to try Vegusto this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:55 pm: Amy

    This is an easy one! Right away when I saw your list I was interested in Papa Tofu Does Ethipian. I promptly ordered and received my very own copy of the zine/cookbook and made an Ethiopian feast for my family. Failed at the injera and had to go out and buy it at the market, but besides that – delish!
    Also very excited about the new garlic peeling method. I couldn’t believe it really worked.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:56 pm: Vanessa

    Beer battered anything has got to be a winner. Those Avocado tacos will be no exception. Can’t wait to try those!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:57 pm: Mattea

    I finally bought a cast iron skillet and it has revolutionized my stir-fries!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:57 pm: Steph H

    Its hard to pick just one thing I’ve wanted to try… the butternut squash mac and cheese craze that took over food blogs for a few weeks was even stronger than the current arugula pesto craze and yet I never tried it! I need to get on the chia seed bandwagon as well I think. Plus, tacos are probably my favorite food and I’ve never tried lentils in them. Thank you for the giveaway!

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:58 pm: Elizabeth

    I finally tried Vegan Queso! (Food lovers) And I can’t stop eating it. I look forward to baking more pies from Vegan In The Sky in 2012.

  • January 27, 2012 at 9:58 pm: Kelly Mastros

    It’s a tough choice, but I have to say the thing I’ve tried and loved (and has changed EVERYTHING) is soaked cashews. Those babies have made this woman tell cheese to KISS OFF.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:00 pm: Jen

    I absolutely want to try Dulce de Leche! ;)
    gibmirdeinehand@gmail.com

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:02 pm: Naomi

    There are many things I’m looking forward to making myself for my family, but…….. vegan cadbury eggs? wha? !!! no contest.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:02 pm: Holley

    Tried and love (and might be addicted): Speculoos. That stuff is pure joy in a jar.
    Can’t wait to try: Falachos! Oh, man. Maybe I should do that tonight.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:02 pm: Joy

    You had me at “Cad” (bury Vegan Eggs. And coconut Whipped Cream!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:03 pm: Liz

    Coconut whipped cream!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:03 pm: Haley B.

    Oh, so much awesome stuff for a vegan (mostly) kid to look at. I definitely plan on looking at Amazon’s food prices (compared to epic sites like Pangaea/The Vegan Store) when I go on trips this year. A donut pan would be just epic to have….and OMG, they make vegan Cadbury eggs, that’s just amazing…so want. Lastly, all those recipes look good and I look forward to trying as many as I can (New Year’s Resolution, try 25-50 new recipes.) From Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese to a cookie dough (vegan) ice cream shake to the variety of homemade candy bars, (I’ve tried making peanut butter cups, tasted great, but difficult, though all those recipes look to die for) everything looks so good.

    Basically, the whole list is awesome, as is this giveaway!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:04 pm: Tiffany

    I really want to try one of those indoor, grow-your-own mushrooms kits.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:05 pm: Sarah

    I definitely want to try Speculoos.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:05 pm: Meredith

    Vegusto cheese is the one I’d most want to try (that I haven’t already yet…)!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:06 pm: marisa

    I’ve already started a broth bag, which I’m very excited about, and I look forward to using fresh yuba. I love the list!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:07 pm: Lisa Last Moore

    I started using cast iron for the first time last year and I am completely obsessed with it now. I never knew one pan could totally rock my world like that. Proselytizing is not exactly something that comes naturally to me, buy I have made it my mission to spread the good word of cast iron to everyone I know who likes to cool and quite a few people who would probably Luke me to shut up already about how great it is.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm: Lindsey

    I finally made my own veggie broth, can’t believe all the scraps I’ve wasted by composting without first brothing. Would love to try that cookie spread stuff. Mmm. But will have to wait until I go on a trip to a bigger city.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm: tabitha

    I’d love to try the grow your own mushrooms kit. I LOVE mushrooms! :-)

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm: Macadamia Nut

    I have been to House of Vegetarian, but have never tried the steamed dumplings and assorted wheat gluten, so will have to do that. Also, Dunwell Donuts.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:09 pm: Maggie

    Going to try… Caribbean Vegan! coconut rice, pigeon pea rice, rum cake
    And a cast iron pan

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:10 pm: Laura

    I’m looking forward to trying a massaged Kale salad. Always looking for new ways to get my leafy greens!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:11 pm: Laurence

    I plan to order the avocado masher in a very near future! :D

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:13 pm: Colleen

    the thing i tried and loved the most was the ohsheglows butternut squash mac n cheese recipe. yum! i was pretty excited about frozen ginger too. looking most forward to trying out some steamed seitan…

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:13 pm: Julia

    I really want to try the cashew cheese.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:16 pm: Melissa

    That avocado masher sounds like a dream come true, and not just for avocados. I love making tofu scramble, but my hands always freeze when I’m crumbling the tofu by hand. Something that lets me crumble it hands-free sounds a-mazing.

    Would also love to try the real thai soy sauce, but is it gluten free? Hard to see on amazon.com as they don’t list the ingredients.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:16 pm: Adi

    Oh em hashem, is anything better than massaged kale? I like it With a tahini dressing and pomegranate seeds. Yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:16 pm: Helen

    I am brand new to vegan lifestyle – tried it several times and did not make it – this time (since January 1) it somehow stuck and became super easy – so to answer your question – there’re so many things that I have yet to try – things that most vegans would consider the basics… The thing that I want to try next is your Mac & Shews recipe… I came across it the other day looking for caramelized beets recipe and I think that Mac & Shews is my next adventure.

    Out of the things I made – I finally overcame my fear of tofu and made it several times… I also made vegan red velvet cake and it turned out yummy!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:17 pm: Sara

    So many things on that list to think about…I think my biggest food revelation in 2011 was raw kale (“massaged kale salads” on the list). Shredded and massaged with dressing, this stuff is even more fantastic than kale is braised or whatever! I didn’t realize that was possible, but yum. Tried chia seeds, but I haven’t fallen in love with them yet, so that’s my quest for this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:18 pm: shivaun

    i really gotta make vegan dad’s hot cross buns. all his other baked goods have been so good!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:20 pm: Helen

    … and I did like you on facebook … not because I needed to for winning … but because I wanted to :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:20 pm: Sonia

    Tried and tried and tried and LOVED Vegan Big Mac at Doomie’s Home Cookin’. Plus, they are the nicest, coolest restaurant around.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:20 pm: Carmen

    After seeing the recipe for lentil taco meat, I was so excited to try it out.
    My sister is vegan and I asked her to buy lentils so that I could make them (she brought home barley, instead) so I had to wing it and used garbanzo beans instead…regardless, it came out pretty tasty.

    So this year, I’m anticipating finally using this recipe.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:21 pm: manda

    I’m pondering my first order of Sweet & Sara marshmallows in another browser tab AS I TYPE THIS! so looking forward to those!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:22 pm: bodhi

    i really loved this list, but soaked cashews are like my favourite thing ever! if i actually remember to soak them, they make so many awesome things! also: massaged kale salads. so good!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:24 pm: Susan Eagan

    We just went out and bought 2 mini donut pans! We also love the Ancient Grains Quinoa Pasta! Thank you, for the chance to win!

    Hey PPK, thanks for the great contest.
    What I have tried from PPKs 100 list, and adored, so I’ll keep at it, #5 massaged kale salad, #9 caulipots – using the recipe from AFR, and #57 hand pies – the sweet potato hand pies in VPITS are so good and convenient, so I’m using the dough recipe to try to punk out a veggie pot pie (so far, too moist – keeps soaking thru the crust yet I’m optimistic).
    Going to try #12 coconut flour, #57 making my own mixes and #99 ordering vegan food on Amazon and linking thru PPK so Teal Cat Project gets some cash.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:27 pm: Jennifer

    I’ve recently become addicted to chia seeds and make chia seed pudding weekly. I’m also dying to order the vegan cadbury eggs this Easter since they are one of the few non-vegan candies I miss.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:28 pm: joe

    I would like to try a vegin cupcake and the vegin yougart ialso love the chocklet chips

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:28 pm: Homa

    We’ve only made chickpea tofu once, to put in a vegan allergy free cheesecake, it might be time to try it again but in a stir fry!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:30 pm: Jen J

    I can’t wait to try coconut flour. I love to bake and have celiac.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:31 pm: Allison

    I have been desperate to try the-butternut-squash-mac-cheese. I want to try it with pumpkin as well. I can’t wait to try some PPK pie recipes too. Yum! Awesome giveaway!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:31 pm: Lacie

    Falafel nachos sound beautiful… just sayin’ :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:32 pm: Reema

    I’m so very addicted to Pinterest. I’m fascinated by Chia Seeds but never exactly sure what to do with them.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:32 pm: Michelle

    I’ve been meaning to eat more lentils…need to make me some Lentil Taco Meat ! Oh and falafel nachos, I’m so drooling, dang it I want some now. Thanks Isa! :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:39 pm: Mindi

    Like many others – I am obsessed with kale – so I’m all about the massaged kale salaids! I would also love to try out the mushroom growing kits!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:40 pm: Becca

    I would love to try out a Tofu Xpress this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:41 pm: luminousvegans

    I loves me some Kale and I love my vitamix, so I most definitely want to try the skittles juice!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:42 pm: Cat

    I feel like the only person in the world who hasn’t tried Caulipots! That and my new copy of Caribbean Vegan are on my list of things I’m looking forward to cooking up this year!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:42 pm: Janet

    When I read the list, I was so intrigued by Speculoos that I searched for it on the internet immediately to find out where I could buy it San Francisco. Voila, I found a jar (called Biscoff Spread) at Cost Plus World Market! I was so excited, since I could find it at Trader Joe’s. I normally eat very healthfully, and the concept of cookies in a cream form kinda gross me out at first, but it’s sooooo good.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:43 pm: Luc Boulanger

    I’ve discoverd the soaked casheew. Got to try freezing à jar them.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:45 pm: Signe Marie

    My favorite thing from 2011 was soaked cashews. Now I use them all the time. Spreads, sauces… Yum. Tonight I made a artichoke/bell pepper/garlic cashew”cheese”. And I still taste the garlic a bit. Which is kind of nice…

    Actually there is a whole lot on the list that I want to try in 2012. Im going to NY in a week (I live in Denmark), and will try to find Dunwell Donuts. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:47 pm: Sarah Harvey

    I have two items that I am looking forward to trying this year:

    1) Falafel Nachos – These look so good. I can’t wait to make a giant plate of these and sit down and watch a movie with my friends.

    2) Lentil taco meat = Like you, I use lentils in everything where meat would be found “traditionally” but I have not yet made tacos with lentils. So, this is now on my menu for next week.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:49 pm: Julia P

    well, you gotta love the food for lovers queso. like, on everything. (except marshmallows.) i’m so glad that it has become easy to find! but i’ve been there, done that. this year i want to finally get a tofu xpress so that i stop making my cookbooks soggy. and i’d like to get into chia seeds, too, since i’m a big fan of breakfast smoothies and not taking vitamins (other than b-12, of course). i still gotta try caulipots, as well. and lastly, i look forward to seeing even more bunnies in blogposts in the future! yay bunnies!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:51 pm: Sarah

    I made the Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake for Christmas dinner and it was perfect!
    Love it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:52 pm: Caryn

    Looking forward to trying the lentil tacos. I have used tofu in the past in tacos.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:53 pm: Breanna

    My goal is to make some vegan food that my meat-eating boyfriend will love. I would also like to master making seitan.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:53 pm: Kristi

    I have been using my slow cooker a lot since getting a copy of The Vegan Slow Cooker for Christmas. I love it! I am really looking forward to attempting vegan cheesecake this year.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:53 pm: Ian

    I made vegan cheesecake for the first time this year (for Thanksgiving) and loved it. Bring on more vegan desserts!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:54 pm: Jaimie-lyn

    awesome giveaway! I wanna win. :)
    I’m totally inspired by your cakes… and especially the pumpkin cheese cake. I’ve not done it yet, but it make smy mouth water and I know that I will whip one up soon.
    Everything looks yummy though…. I wanna eat it all !

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:57 pm: eddie!!!

    I’m loving the broth bag! I feel great about using my left over veggie scraps and it adds so much flavor to my cooking!
    We also painted the tops of our jars with the chalkboard paint just like the one in the photo! another great idea.

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:58 pm: Kelsey Gardner

    I recently tried brussels sprouts and now I’m obsessed with them

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:58 pm: claudia

    just cooked for someone I love! Slow-cooked “End-of-the-week-and-what’s-left-in-the-fridge-splityellowpea soup”. Will try and score some beets tomorrow, unfortunately they have never made it into a burger, I just grate them, season with salt, pepper, vinegar, horseraddish and a bit of sugar. Yum!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:58 pm: Sybil

    I was so excited to see Pumpkin Tiramisu! After I read that, I went to Chef Chloe’s blog and have already made four of her recipes, and cannot wait for her book!
    But don’t be jealous Isa, you are still my favorite!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:58 pm: martie

    Awesome Giveaway!!! I’ve tried the TofuXpress this year- and love it. So easy, just put it in the fridge that morning, tofu is ready for dinner! And such an awesome texture too! What I want to try- soaked cashews and the food for lovers queso!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:59 pm: Jessica

    The Tofu Xpress is life-changing!

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:59 pm: Ben

    I love the caulipots (read about them on the PPK100). Also for me this year I will be trying out Seitan so anything seitan related I am following up :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 10:59 pm: bookharlot

    I can’t wait to try the Dulce de Leche!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:00 pm: Mia

    I want to try the falafel nachos! They look amazing!!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:02 pm: Catalina

    I am all about the kale salad and speculoos. One is super healthy and the other is completely indulgent so it makes for a good time.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:03 pm: Jillian F.

    I enjoy cooking for people I love :) Also am really interested in vegan cadbury eggs, didn’t know they existed!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:03 pm: The 80's

    I’m definitely wanting to try the 3 Brothers Vegan Menu, Rockville Center Long Island NY this year! I’m always near it and never get there. Now I have to!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:04 pm: Rennes

    I made the Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheese after seeing it in the PPK 100, and it was so good!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:05 pm: Eileen

    Pinterest and the iPad in the kitchen changed my cooking world this past year. This next year I want to try making my own beet burgers, just like the ones I love at the Northstar Cafe.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:05 pm: Angela Pohlman

    I just got Papa Tofu loves Ethiopia!n!!! I am really excited and cannot wait to try out recipes.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:05 pm: Louis

    the Cultured Cashew Cheese – seems a little challenge to make, but I’m all for it

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:06 pm: Lindsay Edgar

    Falafel nachos sound divine! Love anything with chick peas!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:06 pm: Stella

    The vegusto cheese looks verrry promising. Love the list!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:08 pm: Melissa C-T

    I pretty much passed out when I found out there was such a thing as vegan cadbury eggs. I can’t wait to try them this year, I hope she still makes them. I haven’t been this excited about candy since I found out about Jokerz bars.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:12 pm: meg

    First off, thank you for not doing that like and tweet thing. It’s soooo annoying!

    Secondly, would it be corny to say that being vegan is my favorite thing from last year?! I converted around May. :) As a serious answer, I’m digging CAST IRON PANS! We got a pair last year and they are amazing and versatile.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:12 pm: Sarah

    I love my cast-iron pans. We have always had them and I have trouble cooking on anything else. I have also used almost all the ingredients on the list related to Vegan Pie in the Sky. I’ve had to take a break though. it is definitely NOT Appetite for Reduction!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:12 pm: Lauren

    2011 was Lauren’s Year of the Blendtec. I got mine in April…my raw food consumption has increased about a billion fold since then. Green smoothies! Green smoothies! GREEN SMOOTHIES ALL THE TIME!I i love them. I can make my own flour from grains I sprout. Pureed soups, normal food processing tasks, making coconut butter, grinding chia and flax seeds…it is a thing of glorious, glorious beauty. And all I have to do is push a button and walk away. Luckily I will love it forever and ever, because this thing will apparently live longer than I will.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:12 pm: JoAnna

    Is it possible to know you will be obsessed with something before you even eat it? Yes, because that is what happened with your AMAZING queso sauce (which I have made practically every week since you graced us with it’s perfection!!)… I also feel the same way about OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese. Comfort + comfort + good for you = Instant favorite!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:13 pm: Beth

    What a great giveaway! I got my very own Tofu Xpress last year and absolutely love it! I really, really want to try the Obsessive Confection Disorder caramels!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:14 pm: the_empty_page

    Oh, definitely the marinated tofu sandwich. My wife ate an awesome marinated tofu sandwich at Birchwood Cafe here in Minneapolis and loved it, but they seem so easy to make at home!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:15 pm: Sara Burkhimer

    I Love Love Love Food For Lovers Vegan Queso! The owners are really cool people too. I want the Tofu Express more than words can say, and I pretty much drooled my face off thinking about “Beer Battered Avocado Tacos”! Yes, Please!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:15 pm: Alayne

    Numbers 37 and 64 are two that I would like to try. The Butternut Squash sounds soooo good. I would love to have “mac & cheese” again. The little bits of kale in it made it very appetizing by adding some color. (I love Kale!) I also want to try those Ancho Lentil Tacos of yours. :) I am just getting into lentils, low calorie, filling, high protein, high fiber what could be better for the 40-Year-Old-Vegan??? I have really enjoyed the books you have put out with and without Terri over the years. My go to favorite is Vegan with a Vengeance. I love pancakes. The Coconut Cupcakes are one of my favorite deserts as well as the Carrot Cake.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:15 pm: sole

    this year i will buy Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food zine!! i can t wait to try to make gluten-free Ethiopian food!

    I bought the tofu press about two weeks sgo and Love it!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:17 pm: Molly

    OH MY GOD: Dunwell Doughnuts and the Cookie Dough Shake look incredible.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:18 pm: vegAnn

    I have donut pans and they are amazing! Seriously, homemade donuts turn anyone’s frown upside.

    I want to try salt + pepper + chocolate mmm

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:19 pm: Faye

    I must say that even though there are some fabulous items on the list, my very favorite has to be #98: cooking for someone you love. It’s amazing how much joy it brings me to cook delicious vegan food for my (omni) boyfriend. I show him I care by cooking yummy vegan food that’s good for him! And he’s even been inspired to return the favor. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:19 pm: Liz

    The “how to peel garlic in 10 seconds” thing COMPLETELY MADE MY YEAR. It’s not that I ever shied away from using garlic before I knew about it, it’s just that sometimes I’d want to use like 10 cloves of garlic and wind up using 3 because I’d get tired of peeling them. I tell everyone about it and if I’m cooking and there are other people in the house I make them come into the kitchen so I can show them. Also, I’m going to try making cultured cashew cheese. 2012 is the year of cultures.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:19 pm: shanon jensen

    I LOVE LOVE LUV your recipes.. my favorite 2 werent on the list, but I’ll mention them anyway.
    I make the Hottie black eyed peas with greens ALL the time, and the sweet potatoes with apples. DELISH!! so thank you for those.
    as for new stuff to try, Im all in for Vegan cheescake, and lentil tacos…
    can’t wait to win a cook book, but oh which one will I pick??? :)
    LOVE you!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:21 pm: Amy

    I didn’t make it far in the 100 when you first put it up – Speculoos sounds fantastic. I have a brother who LOVES Biscoff cookies and his birthday isn’t until October, but I can already tell you that’s part of his gift this year! He introduced the rest of the family to them by bringing a case home from a trip – and I know I want a jar of my own, too!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:22 pm: Heather

    My family adores the Super Moist Pumpkin Bread. Actually got us on a pumpkin kick for a while! We live by Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookjar and Vegan Cupcakes take over the World. What doesn’t taste good from those books????

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:22 pm: Cary

    I can’t pick just one! Vegan Stoner is classic, and I definitely have Falachos, Coconut Whipped Cream, and Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese on my “To Make” boards on Pinterest.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:23 pm: Jody

    I’m already a huge fan of massaged kale salads. YUM!!
    I would love to tackle #85 (making a candy bar), and peanut flour sounds delicious!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:24 pm: Deanna

    Soaked cashews. I’ve tried many of your other vegan cooking methods, but this is one I haven’t gotten to yet.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:25 pm: Holly Brown

    Everything looks yummy! Definitely the Massaged Kale! I live in LA and love Doomies, but haven’t tried the Big Mac, yet…

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:28 pm: Mary

    Caulipots have my vote. The iPad in the kitchen is not bad either :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:29 pm: kittee

    I have yet to try cultured cashew cheese, but I wanna wanna wanna!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:31 pm: Denise R

    I also like #85, make your own candy bars, especially the mounds bars. Love your recipes just made last week the coconut ginger carrot cake for my hubby’s birthday…a BIG hit! Thanks

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:32 pm: Molly

    Salt and pepper chocolate…Hello?!!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:33 pm: Joshua

    My girlfriend let me try some of the gnocchi she ordered at Portobello PDX and I loved it. As a lover of any food with “burrito” in the title, I’m going to have try the Macnocheeto Burrito from Homegrown Smoker NOW!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:36 pm: katrina

    Kale is my new favorite ingredient… in everything, especially baked crispy and placed in with augula and romaine.

    I am determined to make falafel nachos this year. Why haven’t I already?

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:43 pm: Cadry

    What a great giveaway! I’m very curious about the chickpea tofu, and the falafel nachos are an absolute gimme. I’m in love with soaked cashews and green smoothies.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:43 pm: Nikki

    I’m so happy you featured beet burgers, specifically mentioning Northstar Cafe in Columbus, OH. They are hands down the best veggie burgers I’ve ever had! So glad you spread the word!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:43 pm: Becky

    I have made the marinated tofu sandwich twice already! I’ve tried lots of the others too, but that’s my latest. Tell your mother thank you for me.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:47 pm: Charlene

    Hot cross buns! My boyfriend loves carbs so this will be a good treat for him.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:47 pm: Katie

    This is finally going to be the year that I season my cast iron skillet properly! I just need to find a week where I have nothing to do but sit around the house and watch paint… er, oil… dry.

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:47 pm: katherine d.

    I can’t wait for the Vegusto Cheese

    I asked my boyfriend to get me some Lagusta’s Luscious chocolates for Valentine’s (they look so freaking amazing!) and I am about to make the Butternut Squash Mac n Chz recipe for dinner. I had never heard of either until I read your post and I am really excited about both! Thanks for the heads up!!

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:51 pm: Leah

    I’m trying Food for Lovers Queso this weekend, but one of the things I definitely miss about SF is the Flan at Gracias Madre (it totally deserves to be on the list! If you’re in SF eat it!).

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:53 pm: alison

    My friend gave me a Magic Bullet for my birthday last year (I don’t deserve her, really) and have been having a blast making smoothies and grinding up spices in it. My favorite use for it thus far is making banana ice cream. :)

  • January 27, 2012 at 11:54 pm: Emily Roux

    My partner and I are newish vegans, so there’s a LOT we want to try on the PPK100, but I’m extra excited about the lentil taco filling I”m making tonight and I cannot wait to try to make chickpea tofu! <3

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:09 am: Julie M

    I received a tofu xpress for christmas, and I totally dig it. No more breaking dishes when the tower of heavy kitchen items piled on top of a tofu block falls over!

    So many good things–but I do love my soy-free Veganaise, and I *only* cook in cast iron–but what I’m really excited about are Dunwell Donuts! I’m in NY for business this week, and am putting aside a morning for a donut run!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:11 am: Kim

    Using soaked cashews has become a big deal in our house. I actually bought a case of raw cashews just 6 months ago for 200.00 and I am opening the last frozen bag tonight! LOVE LOVE LOVE

    We mad your seitan sausages and my non vegan husband said he would go vegan now if we only could find a good cheese, thank you!

    Bought a tofu xpress and use it several times a week. Makes life so much easier but now I need two!

    I could go on and on and on, oh coconut flour YUM! Thanks for all the links, excited to discover even more new things to love!

    #98 Cooking For Someone You Love
    Last year I moved from Canada to New Zealand, and it’s been a big transition. Fortunately, it was the same year that I found the PPK and started baking for my flatmates. One of them is now my best friend, and when ever I go see him I bake him some kind of vegan food because I love him more than anything. Cooking brings peace and relaxation, and it’s also the best way to show someone you love them. It’s always nice to dispel the myth that you need milk and eggs to make good dessert.

    I tried out soaked cashews for the first time this year in some sauces and it was great! In the next year I am hoping to connect with a Tofu Xpress!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:19 am: enam

    the beet burgers sound so delicious.i can’t wait to try them.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:19 am: Lindy

    I echo the sentiments of #98 as something I’ve tried and loved. Cooking for people I love is a great way to show them I care! I get to give them a gift of time and effort, as well as the gift of better health.

    This year, I can’t wait to try #91, Partially-Frozen Olive Oil as a pie crust helper, and I’ve been hearing rad things about #52, Peanut Flour. I’ve even seen folks mix it with water for a peanut-butter-ish treat without tons of calories or fat! I really want to grab a bag and have some extra goodness in my morning oatmeal.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:21 am: Clayre

    Later this year I’m moving across the country to Chicago. Looking forward to having #61 again – cookie dough shake from Chicago diner. Yum!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:21 am: elizabeth

    #57 hand pies! We love pie!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:24 am: Melissa H.

    #22 I love the Vegan Slow Cooker. I’ve made many recipes, and they are all fantastic! I’m going to have to systematically check out everything on this list. :)

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:25 am: Ella

    The quinoa sushi. I’m a fan of quinoa and veggie sushi. This sounds like a perfect combo!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:25 am: Jen

    I would love to have and try out the Tofu Xpress. It’s been on my wishlist forever. I think I’m finally going to spring for it this year. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway! Good Luck everyone!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:26 am: Ingrid

    I am totally looking forward to #14 being available near me – I haven’t liked any vegan cheeses yet, despite trying many, but my quest for vegan queso will continue!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:27 am: Heather

    It’s basically become my mission in life to get biscoff spread (#4).

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:30 am: Amber

    My vegan gf moving in with me inspired me to dig deeper for some worthy cookbooks. Thus, i found the Veganomicon! since then, i’ve worked my way through 2/3 of that decadent book but i’d say my first loves were smoky grilled tempeh and chickpeas romanesco. As for the list, I’m going to have purchase Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food. nums.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:30 am: rhema hokama

    I think it’s fabulous that quinoa sushi made the list! I actually just made it for the second time today–this time more successfully than the first by boiling the quinoa a bit longer so that it has a stickier consistency. Last time the individual quinoa grains sort of flew out of my sushi. I also discovered that putting a mixture of quinoa, sushi vinegar, agave, and furikake (Japanese seaweed sprinkles) inside inari pouches (fried tofu) rocks! The tofu pouches also help keep the quinoa from flying out everywhere. Not like Grandma’s, but better!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:31 am: Maria

    I want to try Chloe’s pumpkin tiramisu so badly…I love her!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:33 am: Aura

    For the past four months I had to live without a food processor/blender. Life surely became more complicated – no my favorite burgers, no smoothies, no falafel, no creamy soups.. :( At times like this one realizes how important certain kitchen appliances are. So I really look forward to finally getting a new blender.. Blendtec sounds like a dream!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:34 am: MonsterAteMy

    I really want to try making things with soaked cashews this year. I haven’t really liked any of the fake cheeses I’ve tried, but I keep seeing cheesy things being made from cashews (which I love anyway) and I admit, I’m curious.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:35 am: Chris

    #’s 14 and 93 are on my to do list.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:35 am: Lindsey

    This year I am finally going to give in and buy a tofu press, like the TofuXpress!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:36 am: Krista

    Massaged kale salads are the best thing ever!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:37 am: Zach

    I am soooo looking forward to trying FUD nachos (I live in a suburb of Kansas City). I am also enthusiastic about using coconut flour in some fashion in my vegan cooking. I think the Vegusto cheeses sound fantastic. I have a hard time liking vegan cheeses (although the Follow Your Heart varieties are pretty decent). What also sounds intriguing from the list are vegan Cadbury eggs, chickpea tofu, lentil taco meat and Chloe’s pumpkin tiramisu. I plan on buying her cookbook the day it comes out! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:38 am: Lisa Monster

    I like posting vegan recipes on Pinterest, hoping that others will see and try them out, however, I wish that Pinterest’s search option was a little better.
    I purchased my first slow cooker this year, and have already had great successes, particularly with some fantastic vegan chili.
    I very very much want to try the Food for Lovers queso!!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:38 am: Dixie

    I would love to try the Tofu Xpress someday!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:39 am: Kate R

    After I read the list. I began craving the beer batter avocado tacos like mad!!!I haven’t made them as I am waiting for my avocados to ripen up a bit. But I am currently making dumpling squash which I love and I cannot wait to make pie using frozen olive oil thats what I am most excited about by far. I recently made your recipe for faux crab cakes and my Father couldn’t get enough of them. (Which is a miracle unto itself) so thank you.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:39 am: Michelle

    i can’t wait to try refrigerator pickles and hand pies, two things i’ve been meaning to make for a very long time.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:42 am: VL

    Speculoos!! I tried this (in cookie form) on a plane years ago, and it took me ages to figure out you could get it in stores under the name Biscoff. I have yet to buy a jar since I don’t leave near a TJ’s or any place that sells it, but I can’t wait to get my hands on some! Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:43 am: Christine Magiera

    There are sooo many!!! But, I could narrow it down to soaked cashews and chia seeds. :)

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:45 am: Kate

    I love Lentil Taco Meat!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:46 am: Jennifer

    I want to try no. 96, growing edible mushrooms at home. I have gotten some morels and such from farmers markets before, but I don’t know how to forage for them or other kinds, and I would love to have a nice selection available any time the mood strikes me to make fancy dishes with mushrooms. This seems to be a sustainable and cheaper option than trying to buy them once in awhile. Other stuff interests me on the list too, but this is one that was on my personal to do list as well as on the ppk-100, so now I better get to it!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:46 am: JenL.

    Soy-Free Vegenaise!!!! Now I can eat all the Vegenaise I want without getting a stomach ache after. And I’m dying to get into NYC and get some Dunwell Donuts. Donuts are my all-time favorite junk food, and you know, they don’t come vegan too often.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:47 am: Caitlin

    I really want to try the Chicago Diner’s cookie dough shake. Would it be silly to build a road trip around a milkshake..?

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:48 am: Mandi

    I cannot wait until my budget allows me to get a Magic Bullet. Living in a tiny grad school apartment with a teeny kitchen means I am limited in my appliance space, but this would be so worth it!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:48 am: Alice

    Ooo. Pick me!! So, I loved the PPK 100. I have registered for the green cuisinart pots on Amazon, I have reseasoned BOTH my cast iron skillets, and I can’t wait to try the quinoa sushi. I did do the coconut milk whipped cream, but it was flat. I musta done something wrong. Anyway. I LOVE THE 100. I will post to my tumblr.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:48 am: Jessica

    caulipots! and chickpea tofu. i love me some mashed spuds, but am not a huge fan of cauliflower so i’m looking forward to trying them this way. also, chickpea tofu?! how can a mix of two of veg cooking’s holiest of holies not be oh so right?

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:49 am: Amy

    Ch-Ch-Ch Chia. LOVE it. Chocolate chia, strawberry-ginger chia, moca chia. . . Any which way – love it!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:50 am: Beth

    What an awesome giveaway!! OMG I’m praying to win this one LOL! Besides wanting to try all 100, I am dying to try those falafel nachos! Actually that is going to by Superbowl snack! I SOOOOO can’t wait!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:50 am: KikiOmaha

    Given the near rabid enthusiasm I’ve seen for caulipots, they are number one on my list to try. It was behind working with nutritional yeast but since kitty tore into the bag when we weren’t looking and stared at us with an innocent face and yellow whiskers, that is perforce put off until I get more. Caulipots it is!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:50 am: dorothy mora

    let’s face it, i am obsessed with veganomicon. it follows me in my dreams, shows up when a cat needs something to stand on and always opens to something i know i will love <3

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:51 am: Candyce

    I read the 100 list a couple of weeks ago.. and was excited by Veganism going over the moon! Have just stopped myself from telling you the alreadys! Because you are good with Magic Bullet.. it has now been added to my “let’s get’ list.. and I am really looking forward to trying The Whipped Cream. BTW.. also because of IM.. I have stopped flirting around and got pretty serious with Vegan Essentials online.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:51 am: Lori

    Broth bag baby!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:52 am: KJ

    Thank you for sharing such great information!!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:53 am: Meghan

    I tried soy curls for the first time this year! Also found great spirulina bars. I do want to find some lucerna powder to try!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:54 am: Jennifer

    I recently tried the Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese- it wss amazing! Best mac & cheese I have made at home.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:55 am: Lauren K

    Soaked cashews! They are THE best when you need a Little something creamy in a recipe. They’ve been a huge help in my vegan evolution!

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:57 am: Stacy

    I can’t wait to clean up my cast iron skillet! I use it all the time but it could be so much better.

  • January 28, 2012 at 12:59 am: Gracia

    Thanks to some amazing PPK’rs I will get to try speculoos/biscoff spread this year!! And, this just
    reminded me to go to the store and get cocont flower. That sounds like greatest freaking idea ever!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:04 am: robin

    I thought the broth bag was brilliant and plan to try it. Also, PPK 100 introduced me too Pinterest!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:08 am: Lynn LePage

    I’ve tried Chia Seeds and Seitian, plus alot of different veggies from around the world. I just turned vegan and am trying to find new ways to cook veggies.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:11 am: Soozle

    I want to try the Lentil Taco Meat! Thanka PPK! :-)

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:11 am: Lee Ann

    Wow, over 800 comments so far.
    I love caulipots – making them for dinner tonight.
    Looking forward to the speculoos spread

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:14 am: Danielle Andolina

    I have actually tried several things on your list-what a good list by the way. I have not been to ANY of the restaurants and if I ever find myself traveling out of North Carolina I will definitely refer back to this list. I did make the grapefruit creme brulee and it was Ah-mazing

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:14 am: Jordan

    So I just checked out that list and saw the link for “how to peel garlic in 10 seconds”. I’m SO doing that next time I have garlic!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:16 am: Jeremy

    Speculoos spread has changed my life.. I love it… I eat it with everything from apples to graham crackers. I’m looking forward to trying the Gnocchi at portobella PDX, although I’m concerned that I might love their food so much we have to move there! Which wouldn’t be a bad thing.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:17 am: Nicole

    The food at 3 Brothers on Long Island is so good! The mozzarella sticks are ridiculous! I would (and will) drive about 1 1/2 hours there from NJ just to eat them.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:17 am: Beth

    The first thing I tried off the PPK 100 list was the Oh She Glows butternut squash mac and cheese. And even though it has been less than a month, I can say confidently that this recipe will be on regular rotation at our house. And I made the butternut cheeze sauce as a nacho topping (added a little cayanne and cumin) and it was TO DIE FOR! Everyone should go try this, immediately!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:18 am: Missy B

    The best I’ve tried so far: Soaked Cashews, Chia Seeds and Massaged Kale Salads. The ones I’m excited to try: Tofu XPress and Butternut Mac & Cheese!!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:20 am: Beth

    Definitely #64 Lentil Taco meat. I’ve never really enjoyed bean glop in tortillas but felt obligated to eat it for some reason. When I discovered those Ancho Lentil Tacos… well, I gave beans the boot and never looked back. Of course, I love beans in plenty of other dishes, just not wrapped in tortillas.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:25 am: Sandra

    If one cast iron pan is good, four is better.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:26 am: RandiJM

    As one of its most avid worshippers, I have to honor #4 as my fave discovery of the past year (SPECULOOOOOS!). I was also so lucky to meet the makers of #94, Ctate and Chris, last year! I am most excited to finally get to 3 Brothers in Long Island and get a Dunwell Donut. Thanks Isa!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:27 am: Nicole

    U made caulipots for the first time last week and they are are awesome. Can’t wait to try some of the other recipes in the book.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:27 am: Brittany

    I have made caulipots a bunch since getting Appetite for Reduction for Christmas. They are god damn awesome. I want to try leaving out the potatoes all together and just mashing up only cauliflower. One thing that caught my eye on the PPK 100 list were the beet burgers. I’m a veggie burger lover and haven’t tried beets in them before! Another thing I’ve been trying over and over are the soaked cashews. They’re certainly creamy but they kind of upset my stomach :-(

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:28 am: katy

    I just got the avocado masher and am totally infatuated. Its awesome for bananas-for- bread mashing and my guacamole texture improved 5000 percent. Just got the green gourmet skillet and made a awesome stirfry with it. Oh and cashews are alwaaaays soakin at my place. oh and papa tofu! best zine evaa.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:31 am: Val

    I’ve tried a lot on the 100 list and loved everyone of them! Some highlights are definately the Caulipots, Lentil Taco Meat, Smoky Soy Curls, and soaking cashews is the shit! I can’t wait to make one of the cheesecakes from VPITS, a massaged kale salad, and chia pudding!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:33 am: KarliH

    LOOK FORWARD TO TRYING:
    The garlic video totally caught me by surprise. “..just shake the dickens out of it!” Ha! Definitely trying that.
    The various cheeeeeze-tastic recipes
    Vegan slow-cooking. It’s just so darn convenient.
    And I’ve gotta get my hands on a cast iron pan ASAP

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:36 am: Rebecca

    I can’t wait to get a tofu press! Nothing worse than waiting for your tofu to drain.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:38 am: boychucker

    I have made and loved the hell out of some vegan cadbury eggs. I am excited to make vegan handpies and also to use a donut pan for yummy vegan donuts. Even though my taste for savory is growing, I still love my sweets.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:38 am: Erin

    I am all about massaged kale salads. And Skittles Juice! I got a Vitamix blender this year and am green smoothie/juicing it up!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:39 am: Joanna

    I am absolutely in LOVE with Soy-Free Veganise! <3! <3! Freakin' delicious.. it saves my sandwich!!!!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:39 am: Rebecca D.

    I use my magic bullet every day. I also love the butternut squash mac & cheese, chia seeds, and kombu. I am looking forward to seasoning my cast iron pan correctly and I HAVE to try coconut whipped cream ASAP.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:39 am: Rita

    Looking forward to #1, soaked cashews and making mac and shews. I found raw cashews at a good price and hoarded several pounds of it. Also looking forward to making my first vegan cheesecake (#75). Made my first from-scratch pie crust thanks to your book. I’ve been intimidated for years but finally did it. Oh.So.Good. My lop-sided crust was so delicious and worth the effort. Cooks Illustrated, Fine Cooking, Martha Stewart…everyone said it was easy but nobody inspired me to finally take the plunge until your pie book. Thank you!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:40 am: Molly

    I live in Kansas City and am planning on going to FUD for the first time in about a week, and I can’t wait! KC is pretty short on vegan and vegetarian restaurants, although I am a frequent customer at the wonderful vegetarian Eden Alley.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:41 am: Kristi Buckley

    CHICAGO DINER COOKIE DOUGH SHAKE! BEST SHAKE EVERRRRR! All time favorite vegan restaurant!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:47 am: Rebecca

    I, currently, am obsessed with the Magic Bullet. Obsessed. I also am really getting into keeping cashews in the cupboard for emergencies. The things I most want to try from the list are Coconut Whipped Cream and Devilled Eggs.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:50 am: Arielle

    I made the Oh She Glows Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese just the other night. So delicious!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:54 am: Giselle

    I’m uber excited to try Speculoos — I’ve been checking everywhere, and am having the hardest time finding it. But I’m persevering!
    I’m also extremely excited to try a lot of the cheesecake and pie recipes in ‘Vegan Pie in the Sky’.

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:55 am: Allyson Hunter

    I’m dying to try the Food Lover’s Queso since it sounds so yummy! I also plan on making Vegan Dad’s Hot Cross Buns for Easter, and I agree with you that the citrus zest sounds so much better than the candied peel. I can’t wait to try both of these!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:55 am: Kelly Garbato

    I was super-shocked to see Kansas City make the cut! I’m taking it as a sign that I should finally check out Fud. I hear they have really yummy ice cream in addition to nachos and other salty stuff.

    Also: vegan Cadbury eggs!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:56 am: Sharon

    Mac and Cheeze with Squash, nut “cheese” using probiotics, and working my way through Vegan Pie in the Sky are all on my list!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:57 am: Michelle

    I tried your tofu meatballs the minute I read the recipe. They are awesome. Peanut butter? But it works.

  • January 28, 2012 at 2:00 am: Amy

    I have loved making massaged kale salads this year! Yum!

  • January 28, 2012 at 2:01 am: Jo

    OH VEGAN CHEESECAKE!

  • January 28, 2012 at 2:01 am: Hapax Legomenon

    I need Food For Lovers Queso. NEED. And one of these days I’ll get off my lazy butt and try to make those deviled eggs. Deviled was the only way I ever really liked eggs, so they’ve got to be even better vegan.

  • January 28, 2012 at 2:01 am: Danielle

    First of all, if I don’t get a Magic Bullet system soon, I will die. Yes, I will actually die.
    Secondly, my New Years Resolution is to eat an entire jar of Speculoos in one sitting (with only a spoon, of course).

  • January 28, 2012 at 2:16 am: Josie

    This year I would like to try the Tofu Xpress because I have not worked much with pressing tofu. Usually, I am just lazy and don’t wait to press it before using it in a dish. I got tired of tofu fast and would like to return to trying it out again, pressed this time! Love PPK! Thanks for all your ideas and inspiration. ;)

  • January 28, 2012 at 2:17 am: Anna

    I love Sweet & Sara’s new marshmallow formula!

  • January 28, 2012 at 1:54 pm: Lina

    I need more chia seeds in my life…!!

  • January 28, 2012 at 3:25 pm: KZCakes

    Already tried the broth bag, dunwell donuts, all of the vegan cheesecakes in VPITS, using the flaxeed oil on my skillet, hm.. I’ve went to town on the ppk100, but the thing I’ve had my eye on is the falachos. Those are going on the superbowl menu.

  • January 28, 2012 at 3:57 pm: Marilyn

    Yum Yum Yes Please!

  • January 30, 2012 at 12:04 am: Jenn K

    I have tried Caulipots and LOVED them! OhSheGlows Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese is also fantastic! And it is my mission to try Coconut Whipped Cream this year!

  • January 30, 2012 at 12:24 am: Robin

    OMG, totally sad I missed the contest (saw the post too late), but: my Tofu Xpress just arrived in the mail 2 days ago, along with my mini-masher, and a couple days before that, with lightning-fast service, 4 copies of Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food– one for me and all 3 other people I know! YUM! Can’t wait to try them all; love the PPK 100.

  • January 31, 2012 at 2:53 pm: Heartsong

    Bummer I missed the contest, but I will answer the questions anyway.
    There are SO MANY favorites! And SO MANY recipes to look forward to making.
    I have all of your cookbooks except for “Appetite For Reduction.” The copy from the Eugene public library though, is sitting on the floor next to my bed. I am somewhat of a cookbook whore, read them like novels, etc..

    One of my favorite soups is the curried split pea from “V with a V.” I soak the peas over night in the crock pot, saute the onion, garlic, ginger and spices in the morning & transfer them to the crock, leave out the carrots (I dunno why because I love carrots in other pea soups) and then I go away for hours and come home to a wonderful smelling house and a yummy meal already cooked.

    Thanks for being my favorite cook book author ever and being so prolific!
