I'm annoyed at how 90% of vegan recipes seem to be gluten free as well now, I have nothing against gluten free people I just don't want to do it myself and having to buy fancy gluten free flour mixes from Whole Foods is an expensive hassle. I always see delicious looking recipes for vegan cakes and muffins on Pinterest but then they're gluten free and I don't want to bother figuring it out so I just stare at the picture...

I see that a lot with commercial products as well - I'm like "oo, dairy and egg free yay!... oh, gluten free - boo" LOL. I am happy more people have more options but I think it's confusing to non-vegans, because they think we are all gluten free as well, and I'm totally OK with gluten; I like the texture and I like that it gives me protein ^_^

Miyoko Schinner has some excellent recipes. She's best known for her vegan artisan cheese of course, but I have her book Homemade Vegan Pantry and it's dogeared from all the awesome use I've gotten out of it. In fact I'm making my husband a birthday cake from her book RIGHT NOW as we speak! LOL - I made one for my parents earlier this year and it was amazing! She has a couple dessert recipes on her site:

http://www.artisanveganlife.com/desserts-baked-goods/

Of course you're probably well aware of Isa Chandra - I'm pretty sure most of her recipes use regular flours (i have a few of her books and haven't seen any preference for gluten free)

Happy baking!

I get my gluten free mixes from my local Safeway and Fred Meyer (READ: Local grocery stores that have coupons and sales). Or just try them with regular flour, instead.

This drives me nuts too! The biggest one is pancakes. It's harder to find a vegan buckwheat pancake recipe that is not gluten free than one that is.

This is not really a small thing, but my Mom had to put her dog down yesterday. I'm feeling really sad. Edward was such a great dog. He was a mix of lab and Great Dane and my Mom, who is a Benedictine nun living in a community house, was allowed to acquire him from an animal shelter. He was protective of those nuns lol. Very kind and patient and he loved being petted and doted on by a lot of women. He was 11 years old and finally his back legs gave out on him completely. He had been suffering with hip problems for a long time and was in a lot of pain. I don't know all the circumstances of what happened recently. I just know that I will miss him always! He was family. This world is hard enough to live in but it always seems to get a little bit harder when someone you love passes away. :/

Detractors of vegetarianism said in my class 6 days ago that vegans were stupid. I didn't even bother with them. Just started to have violent tics.

As a vegetarian transitioning to veganism I can't even join most vegan Dutch groups because I don't care about animals enough according to most admins..

Even if I make clear that for transitioning, knowing more about veganism would be helpful.

I feel like complaining at work because the two people that sit in the cubicles next to me keep going on and on about politics and how great Trump is etc and I can not concentrate on my work. I think it is just plain wrong regardless of sides to discuss politics while on the job. It really needs to stop, but I am afraid of the backlash if I say something or go to the supervisor. :/ More and more I just want to work from home and not have to deal with people. In two weeks I will move into my permanent new cubicle at work...which will be half the size of my old one. 60 new people are being moved into our building so the entire building is being restructured to make everyone's work space 1/2 of what it currently is to accommodate. Yeah...

My grandmother (whom I love) has ridden my back for over 20yrs. Three weeks ago she crossed a line by bring up my weight, I have struggled with my weight all my life so it is a really sensitive subject. She started in and I told her to stop it, that I knew I need to lose weight. Finally I said can I do anything right you've been on me for over 20yrs and it needs to stop now. She told me I was being rude and disrespectful. The really irritating thing is she was in my kitchen, when she started calling me fat. She doesn't think she's done anything wrong.

Being asked to "tone it down" and censor myself for the comfort of others when I refer to meat as flesh, eggs/dairy as bodily excretions, and slaughtering/hunting as murder when discussing food in certain arenas. We can't have folks calling it what it really is, now can we? Grrrrrrrrr..........

I very much understand the importance of slow and healthy transition and the need for educating compassionately and kindly, which I feel using terms that describes it all for what it really is can only help in painting a clear and vivid picture. Otherwise, it's just more sugar coating and tap dancing around the real deal, which only seems to prolong the all too long and widely accepted ignorance.

If only I could do the same in return when having to listen to the disgusting descriptions and displays of our heavily addicted taste bud pleasures being bounced around spaces everywhere one goes, pretty much. Bombarded with commercials, billboards, fast-food-like flesh cooking spaces/aromas on every corner, and the ass backwards heavily funded marketing schemes of presenting photos of "happy" cows/chickens/etc. in every aisle of most grocery spaces. Talk about uncomfortable.

And then happening upon animal rescue organizations set up outside of the grocery spaces who are raising money to support their mission by selling dead cooked animal flesh for people to eat. Really??? How can those dots not be connected in their hearts? I just don't get it, and not sure I ever will. Navigating social arenas becomes quite an art when you no longer partake in reality in the same way the majority does. Navigating self remains the most important journey. It's a jungle out there.

the only thing my mom wants to talk to me about is about veganism.. in a negative way.. Says I should be more tolerant, like other vegans seem to be.
so imagine if someone you were close to pretended to be vegan for a very long time, wouldn't it be heart breaking if one day you knew they were lying the entire time to make you happy?

It sounds like she's the one being intolerant!

I'm sorry you have to deal with that, dealing with family seems like one of the hardest parts of being vegan sometimes.

@Werewolf Girl is right. Sometimes family is the hardest. Hang in there and keep your chin up.

She has been very supportive of me being a vegan for the last 7 years, but everything changed. Now she complains that I am vegan.

Sure.

One of my pet rats died last week and it looks like I'm going to lose another one real soon. I think he has a rare type of tumor on his face, vet seems to think so too. He had surgery twice already and that didn't help. It just grew back a week later. So I got some medicine to make him comfortable. I will miss him, he is a loving and social rat. There are some rats I bond with more than others, and he is one of them.

I volunteer for a rescue organization that has partnerships in the community, and benefits from a yearly fundraising BBQ - I help out at this fundraiser because I care deeply about the cause, but it is very difficult to navigate my feelings regarding the selling of meat to help animals

Last time I was actually asked to help serve meat and I refused, as politely as possible... I was then made fun of by one person, and lectured by another. On the other hand, there were some good conversations opened up, and you never know what kind of thought processes you inspire in someone when that happens, so there is sometimes a silver lining

Considering having Santa put to sleep. He is a lovely rat, I will miss him tons. He's one of those rats who could make friends with anyone.
I think what he has is Zymbal’s gland tumor. These types of tumors can also cause abscesses. It's gotten so large that he was bleeding from his eye and his teeth is starting to over grow. He's been losing weight. A few weeks ago, I was told this was only an infection. I think this type of tumor is so uncommon that the vet I go to hasn't heard of it.

Gardein is discontinuing most of their products in Canada until a new plant is built . Only 4 will be available.
The apparent reason is that they are unable to meet demand. WTF?!

On the other hand, there were some good conversations opened up, and you never know what kind of thought processes you inspire in someone when that happens, so there is sometimes a silver lining

I'm not surprised that those people reacted that way. Animal rescue activists who eat meat are probably very internally conflicted.
