What a year it has been here at Veganize It...Don't Criticize it! No recipe this week. You have one minute to weep.
Okay, that's enough, pansy.
Instead of ending the year with a recipe, I decided to do a year in review! It has been quite a ride in my kitchen. First, I had to move kitchens from west side to half-way east side. I assure you, moving my kitchen is perhaps one of the most daunting challenges I could possibly face. My kitchen required more boxes than my bedroom and living room combined. Then, I moved into an apartment with not only the shittiest oven I've ever had the displeasure of using, but with about half the cabinet space I had grown accustomed to having.

Like the title says, "Veganize It...Don't Criticize it.
If you couldn't tell from my 9 million blog posts including Morel Mushrooms, they are one of my favorite earthly gifts. This recipe tops my top 10 list of "Ways To Enjoy Morels". Yes, they're pricey. Yes, I pawned my grandmas old necklace to but a pound. And yes, it was worth every ounce of Jew Guilt I experienced.
A spicy surprise for my mother's birthday. Unlucky for her, chipotle and chocolate have similar coloration muahaha.
It's getting cold out. Keep warma with Shawarma hahahaha. Oh, really...I'm just too much.
Porcini, Shiro, Sake, Brown Rice Vinegar Reduction
And that concludes our Veganize It! Year In Review. I hope you have the munchies as badly as I do right now from all these photos. Well, it could've been the joint that magically disappeared as I was writing this post. Just kidding. I don't BUI (Blog Under The Influence).
See you next year, kids.
