New Years' lunch

I donít want to do another Ham. I have tried to make what my mom always made for holidays this past year and a half for my dad but I donít wanna. Lol. If I cook momís menu, I hear how hers was better and if I do something different, itís how she always stuck to tradition because ďthatís the way it should be.Ē

I am making a family chocolate cake for New Years but thatís as far as Iíve gotten.

Any ideas? Iím a vegetarian but the only one in the family. And I donít force them all to eat ďfake meatĒ 🙄 on holidays and family days.

Convection oven help?

I have a convention oven thatís relatively new. Iím really struggling with it. I follow recommendations about reducing cook time and learned that I canít cover stuff if I want it to cook properly. But, now holiday baking is here and Iím so confused. My bread pudding, started it at half the time and kept an eye on it - hard as a rock on the outside and wet in the center with the backside darker than the front. I set a timer now to rotate cornbread, etc., so both sides of the top cook evenly, but still almost always have a soggy center.

Now a favorite-cranberry orange loaf - first attempt in bread pan, terrible. Brown on the outside and literally watery and wobbly inside. I went to take it out and it wiggles like jello.

Chicken breasts, steak fries, frozen pizzas, all cook up just fine. Itís just baked goods. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Advice, before I go get another damn oven?

I made walnut "Parmesan" cheese today

Put it on some veggie pasta. Itís not cheese, but has itís own flavor and I like it. Especially with the roasted tomatoes in my sauce.

I havenít tackled vegan cheese yet. The disgusting mess that was my oat milk attempt is holding me back. What recipes do you guys like for different vegan cheese?

Tried making oat milk..

I wonder if it would taste better as chocolate milk? 🤨

Itís cheaper than buying it but wow making it was messy. My daughterís guinea pig loved the pulp though. I dried it overnight and broke it up with her breakfast.

Any tips for making it more tasty?
