international months of pieing *

agent chocolate cream comin' at ya with a few tried and true
recipes, a few tips and a few that i've just made up and haven't
actually ever made but hey, cookin's all about the experience
and sometimes you have good ones, sometimes you have bad ones
. . . . . . . even when i wasn't vegan i've always cooked vegan
(since i've been vaguely politically aware anyway) cos its better
for the earth, better for the animals, and it makes you more creative
and innovative - cooking from conventional cooking books and listening
to that crap about eggs holding stuff together is like buying
nikes 'cos the ads tell ya to, and eating mcdeath cos the billboards
make it look yum . . . . whoops sorry bout the rant, it just came
out, food is definately my passion in life . . . . .
Also, i understand that not having amounts is kind of annoying,
but hopefully its kinda obvious, and not too difficult to follow
- i'm happy to take on feedback and try and figure out amounts
if ya all need them . . . . . .

VARIATIONS ON THA THEME
Be creative, invent your own - some ideas -
beetroot chocolate mousse pie
chocolate mousse pie
sweet pumkin pie
You can use the same bases for these different pies, the agar
agar (its a sea vegetable, get it from Asian grocers) will help
them set so if you want them more wobbly just use less !
