The Official Veggieboards Christmas Thread 2017!

I've been so busy this season that Christmas seems to have come out of nowhere, it's only a little over a week away!

What is everyone doing for the holidays this year? I'll be visiting with family and friends and giving vegan cookies to everyone as gifts!

I'm going to be making these recipes this weekend to give to coworkers during the week:



Vegan Gingerbread Cookies: http://www.isachandra.com/2008/12/th...gerbread-past/



Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows: http://www.isachandra.com/2009/03/pe...utter-pillows/



Just like Granny B's Sugar Cookies: http://vegweb.com/recipes/just-granny-bs-sugar-cookies


I'm thinking of trying a few new recipes this year but I'm having trouble deciding... Does anyone have any favourite vegan Christmas recipes to share? What kind of food are you guys making this year? Looking for inspiration!

I, uh, erm...*blush* made Emily Von Euw's peppermint lava cake into truffles, which were delicious. I don't know if Canadians are eligible for the MacArthur Genius awards, but if they are, Emily von Euw should get one.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I LOVE her blog! She's a genius for sure... Also, I saw her once on the skytrain but I was too nervous to tell her I was a fan.

At various times, I'll be with my wife's family, my parents, and/or my sister's extended family. Should be fun.

I sent money to the Vegetarian Resource Group, Vegan Outreach, and 350.org

You're making BC sound like an even cooler place to live, if that's what you are going for.

I want some vegan cookies! So jealous, I'll have to make some. What's Christmas without cookies, after all?

My vegan cookies were a huge success! I made tins of cookies for all my friends, family and coworkers and I got a lot of positive feedback and a lot of questions from people curious about how vegan baking works. At least 4 people asked me for the recipes!
