How to Make an Easy Caramel Sauce

@VeganWithAYoYo - I've had good luck making caramel with canned coconut cream, from Trader Joe's!

Kenji's Favorite Recipes for Easy, Delicious Summer Meals

I also have a belated question regarding that gazpacho... I remember reading that blending extra virgin olive oil causes it to turn bitter, yet the recipe calls for doing exactly that. I do remember one of the times I made it, the soup had a horrible bitter flavor, but I don't remember what olive oil I used that time or if I varied any of the ingredients (green onion in place of red, etc).

Kenji's Favorite Recipes for Easy, Delicious Summer Meals

Great stuff! That Andalusian Gazpacho recipe is still probably one of the best things I've ever made. Thanks!

Beautiful, Flaky Pie Crust the Old-Fashioned Way

This looks great! Is it too much to hope that it could be veganized with good results?

Use Aquafaba to Make Extra-Light, Fluffy Egg-Free or Vegan Pancakes

Would this recipe need any adaptation to be made as waffles? (I don't recall mention of it in the article.)

I read recently about aquafaba and tried, too optimistically, to make an angel food cake, swapping the egg whites for an equal volume of aquafaba. It was a complete disaster! Looking forward to that lemon cake recipe that you posted an in-progress photo of on Instagram a while back!

The World of Buttercreams: 6 Varieties to Try at Home

recently i had tried a recipe for flour buttercream with the granulated sugar beaten with the fat. grainy in spite of beating a long time, and the recipe had the pudding added all at once. it never stopped looking broken.

last night though i made this recipe of flour buttercream, and it turned out SO well! perfectly smooth and light and not real sweet like american buttercreams, which i'll never make again. i made it lemon flavored with zest and juice making up part of the liquid, and put it between chewy ginger molasses cookies. thank you for the great recipe!
