Why Vegan Ricans?

My photo
Vegans because we don't need dead animal flesh inside our bodies it depletes our vitality, our mental powers and make us feel exhausted. We don't want to support factory farms and their unnecessary process of killing millions of animals for food. "Ricans" because we're native Puerto Ricans people who were born and raised in the Caribbean island, Puerto Rico "La isla del Encanto" which means "The Island of Enchantment".

I just saw from Yasmin's blog that you were at the seattle meetup yesterday. I'm bummed that I didn't get to meet you. Hopefully I'll meet you at a future meetup.

I did have tons of your coconut custard - It was awesome. So was your other dish.

Did the recipe - had only light coconut milk and added some shredded coconut. It was a hit - even mom-in-law raved about it. It was so easy and creamy.
