Lawsuit claims Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers are contaminated by meat

CNAP RESPONSE: Burger King’s claim that The Impossible Whopper is 100% Whopper and 0% beef is not true. It can’t be both. A 100% beef whopper is not 100% Impossible Whopper. A Whopper is defined as containing 100% animal product, namely beef. In addition, nobody calls a Whopper, a Whopper Sandwich. I’ve never heard it, exceptContinue reading “Lawsuit claims Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers are contaminated by meat”

Fruit And Nut Chocolate MuffCakes

  FRUIT AND NUT CHOCOLATE MuffCakes Before taste-testing I only had one question for Steve. Muffin or cupcake? What do you think? Upon tasting he said, “a muffcake”. So, MuffCake it is! I agree. Not a pudding cake, not an air-stuffed bakery bought cake. Homemade, dry enough, moist enough, dense enough, flavorful enough, whereby youContinue reading “Fruit And Nut Chocolate MuffCakes”

Pepperoni Kalamata Olive Spread

PEPPERONI KALAMATA OLIVE SPREAD I always liked sandwich spreads: ham salad, chicken salad, even the SPAM Salad sandwich my mother used to make. Who would have thought that I’d spend the greater part of my life developing animal-free recipes and that one of those recipes included many animal-free renditions of her SPAM SALAD. This isContinue reading “Pepperoni Kalamata Olive Spread”

AFC VEGAN HAM AND EGG MACARONI SALAD You can’t get much better than this. Lots of new techniques applied to an old-time favorite salad. Macaroni has a new place in the heirarchy of pasta salads.

AFC Macaroni Salad Sauce

AFC MACARONI SALAD SAUCE Vegan sour cream has about half the calories of vegan mayonnaise, and it’s thicker, so you can add more to it without watering it down too much. For that reason, at least in some salads, vegan sour cream has become my new ‘go to’ base for mayonnaise replacement! Makes approx. 2Continue reading “AFC Macaroni Salad Sauce”
