Revised Mozzarella Teese

It seems that the amazing vegan company Chicago SoyDairy is always hard at work with their products. I was lucky enough to receive a sneak preview of a revised recipe Mozzarella Teese to test. It is supposed to have a better taste and texture than the already good Teese Mozzarella style. Grilled cheese and pizza were the obvious testers for it. The results were pretty impressive and it did live up to the better taste and texture expectations. The Teese melted great and had a smooth creamy texture without any strange aftertaste.

Grilled Teese on Cranberry Walnut. Oh Yeah! This was the only bread I had on hand to use and I'm glad I did.

BBQ Spinach, Mushroom and Mozzarelle style Teese Pizza. Yum! Don't be afraid. Next time around I would definitely crank the oven up to 500-550. This was the suggested temperature for use of the Teese on pizza. I will admit that I was afraid to bake it at that temperature, my mistake!

special order - Birthday Cake

Special order Coconut Lime Cake with Vanilla Buttercream. Happy Birthday!

Hot Chocolate Cookies

So, a long time ago I got a box of awesomeness from Chicago SoyDairy.

There is always something going on around here and I'm finally posting about it.

I am a big fan of Teese but the Dandies were the first to be opened. It's been a really long time since I've had a marshmallow. I have found a few marshmallow "like" desserts but these are the real deal when it comes to vegan marshmallows. I regularly bake Hot Chocolate Cookies for our co-op. They were the first thing to come to mind after eating a few Dandies. I chopped up the Dandies into smaller pieces to avoid a marshmallow explosion and to match the size of the cookie. These cookies have a deep rich chocolate taste followed by sweet and smoky from the sugar, cinnamon and chipotle pepper. Add to that the fluff and chew of the marshmallow pieces and you have the perfect addition to the already great Hot Chocolate Cookie. Thanks go out to Chicago SoyDairy. I'll be baking these on a regular basis.
