This was so fun to do! And it reminded me of some things I need to try around town like a vegan elephant ear, and VeganFabulous told me there's a recipe for fondue in Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. :)

i'll have to look for the fondue recipe...although i'm suspicious of any vegan cheese, just because i have yet to find one that i like.
