A very good idea, but can we have some veggie and vegan recipes in it (mainly cakes and pastries :eceek)

I volunteered to help with this cookbook early on, but I am no longer able to give much time to it. However, I have some favorite recipes I would like to share (vegetarian, vegan and fishy), and would also be willing to do some of the typing - like putting recipes from the Forum into a consistent format. Also, I'm a very good proofreader. Maria dB, I have learned to adapt recipes for a vegan friend  - even cakes! - and they actually taste good ...  :nod2

Im down with lending some recipe ideas.. Like a clam or seafood chowder.  some bread recipes that would compliment soups and chowders.  and a couple filling vegetarian recipes as well.  I was raised a vegetarian but have evolved  :chuckle to have more curious taste buds.

here's an idea for the cookbook: we could include an index of which recipes are vegan, vegetarian or omnivore - it would be a unique feature that would no doubt lead to international recognition  :nod2

Gosh, I found it lol

Apple/Cranberry Custard Flan

2 apples peeled & thinly sliced
1/2 c sugar - divided
1 tsp grated orange rind
3/4 cup of fresh or frozen cranberries
3 eggs
1 cup real whipping cream PS - I use low fat canned milk instead and works great!
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2tbsp apple jelly (I usually use more than that to brush over top after cooled)

Generously butter a 9 inch quiche pie plate. In bowl, toss apple slices with 1/4 c. of sugar and orange rind. Arrange over bottom of prepared pan, and sprinkle with cranberries.  Beat together eggs, whipping cream or canned milk if you are using that, remaining 1/4 c sugar and vanilla until blended. Pour gently over fruit. 
Bake at 350 o F. for 40 - 50 min. or until puffed and golden. Cool on rack.

In small saucepan, melt apple jelly over low heat and brush over flan.  Serve warm or at room temperature,  Makes 6 servings.

How about a dog biscuit recipe?  A lot of chatters have pets so a couple of recipes for dogs, cats, birds etc would be nice.  Like a lot of people I'm not a very good cook but I still like try on a semi-regular basis and would be willing to contribute.

I'm so happy to see this Crazy!  I was in the chat when you spoke of it and have printed it out.  It sounds so good.  Thank you so much.

maybe a Forum wizard could copy crazylady's "Apple/Cranberry Custard Flan" recipe to the Cooks' Corner thread so it can be with the other recipes ... ?

Sunny - I'd love to have the dog biscuit recipe.  I have one dog with allergies and milk bones are causing problems.
