Huffington Post Posts Vegan “Projects”
Because there are only 5 comments, it might be nice to go on over to Huffington Post's "Vegan Holiday Baking Projects" article and have a say. Why the heck they're called "projects," I'll never figure out. If they were nonvegan, would they be called "projects?" They're all desserts, so why not call them that? In fact, I think I'm going to go over there right now and mention that.
Here's my comment: As a vegan who bakes weekly, I must say that it's not half the big deal it's made out to be. It's easy, it's not expensive, and the food is delicious and far healthier (with zero cholesterol) than the nonvegan varieties. Calling the desserts "projects" merely sets up the reader to have an expectation that what's ahead shall be "work" and maybe even difficult or treacherous (and in need of being tackled), and who knows how it will all end!
It's just dessert. And it involves ingredients. Some are different than the ones you're used to using. They can all be found in my local grocery; I rarely go to Whole Foods or a health food store. It's a "project" as much as baking any other dessert is a "project."
