I’m on strike!

Vegan Strawberry Cream Truffles - Fork & Beans

I have the touch of death in the kitchen when it comes to baking as of late. I’m failing royally at everything I have a go at. It’s the endless cycle of baking gluten, egg, and dairy-free. You can never think you have arrived because there is always something new to learn, something to tweak and revise, and something to turn into a disaster.

I need a break from sorghum flour, chia seed slurry, and xanthan gum. So old trusty candy-making comes to the rescue! Just in time for Valentine’s day, too.
