We launched our new valentine recipe section yesterday and already have a small selection of recipes ready for you to look at and will be printed one a day until February the 14th to give you plenty of ideas of ways to tempt you partner especially if they aren't vegan and you want something extra special. Today's recipe is chocolate dipped strawberries, delicious and simple to make.
Sorry I can't seem to upload the photos today, you will just have to click through to the site tosee how delicious the strawberries look.

Valentines day is in a couple of weeks and the recipes for vegans website will be concentrating on recipes for this occasion until the day. Some photos below show what sort of things are in store so keep coming back for lots of tempting foods. The new valentines menu page will be going up this evening.

Today's new recipe is a lovely warming lunch, Fried Peanut Butter Sandwiches. I love them although they are really high in calories. I usually serve them on a bed of lettuce and cucumber to make them more refreshing (and also to convince myself I'm eating something healthy). You can also have them with jam as the photo below shows.
Must get back to thinking about valentines (although right now my mind is being distracted by the thought of possible snow). If anyone has any valentines recipes they would like to share they could enter then into the competition on the website.

Todays recipe on the site has kindly been donated by Vegetarians in Paradise and is a lovely looking Brassica Slaw:
If you have a recipe site and would like to donate a recipe in return for a link to your site you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was great to recieve a comment saying someone had tried out the gingerbread men and liked them. It is really nice to know that people are appreciating the efforts of putting up new recipes.

It would be interesting to know if there is anyone out there that can say for sure that they always use vegan products in everything they do, as I think it would be very difficult. I'm not saying we should ever give up though, even just having a vegan diet makes a big difference.
Todays new recipe on Recipes for Vegans is going to be vanilla biscuits.
These look lovely and light and if anyone bakes them they must let me know how they come out as I can't eat sugar so can't try them. My sister baked them and sent me the recipe and said they were delicious.
If you have any comments on any other recipes from the site that you have tried out it would be great to hear them.

If you have any other feedback I would really like to hear it.
On a totally different subject I am currently searching for a new ballet leotard and shoes for my daughter. It is a huge dilema that I have to get her leather shoes. Currently I just buy 2nd hand shoes which I feel aren't as bad. I know there is one vegan alternative but it is so expensive I can't afford to do it for her. I was going to send her with no shoes but I don't want her to feel different to everyone else. Has anyone else had this problem and how did they get around it?

I added some ginger, chilli and soy sauce to the vegetables and mixed it all together. If you want the whole recipe you can find it here http://www.recipesforvegans.co.uk/chinesenoodlestirfry.html
Tomorrow my eldest returns to school. I am desperately trying to think of some interesting things to put in her lunchbox. I don't find the sandwich fillings too difficult, as she tends to be happy with the same things all week. However she soon gets bored of her little snacks. I usually vary between fruit bars, chopped up tinned peaches, a handful of cashews, or a few seeds. I wonder if anyone has any other ideas at all.
