1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegetarian/Vegan potluck ideas on: April 09, 2008 11:04:10 AM
So there is a big vegetarian/vegan potluck festival coming up Sunday at my school. I am a vegetarian, but am strapped for ideas on what to bring. It will take place outdoors on a warm day without electricity for several hours, so the food has to still taste fine after sitting out for a while (so no fried tofu or anything).

Also, I am a student on an extremely tight budget (saving for a trip to Europe this summer) so it has to be cheapcheapcheap. I do have access to all kinds of cookware, most spices, common baking ingredients, and I have a lot of experience baking/cooking so complexity is no problem.

So post your favorite cheap potluck recipes, savory or sweet!
It will be much appreciated!
2  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Oat Cakes: a plea for recipes on: December 01, 2007 10:19:28 AM
Well I've never eaten oat cakes, but this reminds me of something I made up when I was camping with some friends for fall break.

My boyfriend and I had bought pancake mix and syrup for breakfast during the camping trip, but we had not thought about one of our friends who is vegan and could not eat the pancakes because they had dairy products in them. We also had some instant oatmeal, a kettle, some pam, and a little frying pan that we had been cooking the pancakes in.

So what I did so my vegan friend could enjoy pancakes too was mix a little water with the instant oatmeal and pour it onto the greased frying pan and fry it up like a pancake. He poured syrup on top and it was delicious! Soon everyone was asking for oatmeal pancakes.

So this may or may not be similar to oat cakes as you describe them. But they sure are delicious!

Oh thanks guys, these are all fantastic ideas! keep them coming!

The fudge ideas are especially awesome since bags of chocolate chips are on sale right now at the local Food Lion for 65 cents, haha.

Oh and fyi, I do have access to a common kitchen with a stove, oven, fridge, freezer, toaster oven, and microwave right across the hall from me.

oh thanks guys! These are all great ideas!
Where do you find almond bark? I was at the kind of run-down Food Lion today and could not find any.
Will I have to head out to a nicer grocery store to find it or do I have to wait for Christmas season to pick up?
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Cooking in a Dorm-easy goodie recipes on: November 26, 2007 09:43:04 PM
I posted this under cooking as well because I was unsure which board would be more appropriate.

So as small gifts for all my friends, I want to make a small assortment of candy and baked goods to tie up in pretty clear plastic bags.

Unfortunately, since i live in a dorm and live in a meal plan, I don't have food staples such as flour and sugar on hand and since I'm on an extremely tight budget I don't want to go buy 10+ ingredients to make these gifts.

So here is where you wonderful cooks come in! I need ideas for holiday bakes that are relatively cheap and use few ingredients, ie peppermint bark.

I really will be happy with any result that gets my jeans blacker than they are blue.

The site says to use half a packet of brown on blue dyed things along with black to get them really black. Would this also help with the purple hue you mentioned?

Rit says it works on synthetic blends of at least 60% cotton, so 96% cotton should be fine hopefully.

Okay I will definitely try the stovetop. thanks!

I hope this is the right place for this question. If not please direct me elsewhere!

So I have this pair of skinny blue stretch jeans that are 96% cotton and 4% spandex. I like the fit a lot, but they are dark blue and I no longer like the color.

I've been wanting blackblack skinny jeans for a while so it makes sense that I should just dye my blue jeans black.

Is this possible? Would I just use regular RIT fabric to get them black?

Thanks!

wealleatpasta: I used wilton dyes.

I do too! but I can never get colors as vivid as yours, though I try. my method of choice at the moment is crockpot, but I always get patches of white in my roving after dyeing that mutes the colors greatly.

and thank you koi! I love purple! I'm surprised I have not spun up any purple yarn before this!
