Cookies are a fun way to recreate some petroglyphs. I like to add nuts or seeds to make them more stone-like. They’re also pretty tasty! Mix the cookie ingredients together until the dough is smooth. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop cookies onto each baking sheet, using 1/4 c. batter for each cookie. Moisten your fingers with some water and pat down the scooped cookies to 1/2″ thickness. It’s okay if the cookies are not perfectly round or oval. Imperfect shapes will make the cookies look more like natural rocks. Bake for 50 minutes at 300 degrees, until the cookies are firm and browned on the bottom. Turn off the oven, then flip the cookies over bottom side up. Return the cookies to the oven for a few hours until the oven has cooled down. The cookies should be nice and crisp like biscotti. Cool completely before decorating.

Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge Starts Saturday! http://j.mp/2djBCJP http://j.mp/2djBCJP#comments Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:02:00 +0000 http://sacramentoconnect.sacbee.com/?guid=fc71a3c37b64869c24594bb8c3fc15b0

The special vegan menus aren't available yet, but I will post updates on my Sacramento Vegan Facebook page as I find out about them.  With so many restaurants participating this year, I know I won't be able to get to all of them, but I'll visit as many as I can.  I'll post pictures on Facebook and Instagram of the wonderful vegan dishes I order, and I'll do a blog post every Sunday night with a wrap-up of the restaurants I visited and the food I ate during the previous week.  I can't wait!


One caveat:  most of the participating restaurants do not serve vegan food exclusively.  They probably do not have separate frying equipment or a separate spot on the grill just for vegan food.  If this is a problem for you, you may want to patronize only the vegan restaurants or order only foods that aren't likely to have come in contact with non-vegan items.  


More information on the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge is available on their website at http://sacveganchallenge.com/ or on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/sacveganchefchallenge/?fref=ts.
