Have you ever made a pandowdy? I guess I may have made similar desserts but this was my first "official" pandowdy.
Crisps, Betties, crumbles, cobblers, and pandowdies are all various baked combinations of fruit, crusts and crumb toppings. A pandowdy is a deep dish baked pie-like dessert with a top crust that is broken up and pushed under the filling in places.
This one happened to be a cardamom-pear pandowdy that I tested for Laurie Sadowski's upcoming pie book.
So I guess you're wondering if it was good? Oh yeah!
You can find reviews of Laurie's bread book here and here, and more pie photos, here. All her recipes are vegan, gluten-free, and allergy-free.
The Sweetest Vegan makes bacon cheeseburgers
The Sweetest Vegan, a vegan video blogger on Youtube, asked me to share her latest video with you. You can watch her make a vegan Bacon Double Cheeseburger. She says, "It's actually healthier than it sounds. I want as many vegans and non-vegans as possible to see this video so that people can see the hearty potential of a couple of plants."
If you find yourself craving an unhealthy sandwich, try the Sweetest Vegan's delicious-looking version instead. (If you click on "show more" below the video on youtube, you'll find the recipes for her bacon, burgers and cheese sauce.) So far the SV has 391 videos so you're sure to find one you like. I think she's pretty great. What do you think?
