Ouch!

I was trying to make the Vanilla and Coconut Flan from Viva Vegan! for dessert today but didn't get past the first step and spent hours at the hospital with 2nd degree burns on my right hand. When Terry says to be careful because the sugar is hot, she really means HOT!! I've made this before with no issues so I have no idea why I did this today.
I was also going to make some corn crusted empanadas for dinner and right now am considering toast. Boo.

Oh, no! I am so sorry that happened. Sugar can definitely be hazardous when it gets to those hot temperatures...it's sweet, sticky lava! I hope your hand heals quickly so that you can conquer the Vanilla and Coconut Flan!

My new website www.vegam-moms.com is a place for all things wonderful for the body and the Earth. Currently I feel that vegan and vegetarianism is all spread out!

It is my goal to create a simple and single place for blogs, website, products, books etc. that are geared towards sustaining and helping the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle.

I would be honored if my current & future subscribers could get to know you and your work.

I hope you can take a moment and look at the site.
Membership is free.
Advertise your site and all that you do. I just want a common place for all things vegan and veg!

And no, it is not just for moms...I just liked the name.

Thank you,
Meredyth O. Willits

Thanks Aimee and Emily! It is sore but not as bad as it could be, or as I feared when I took the bandages off today.
