nutritional yeast

Hi All, 2 questions I hope get answered; how long can I keep nutritional yeast? (Has been refrigerated for several months) and how long can I keep a Parmesan substitute that was made with cashews and nutritional yeast?
Thank you.

Vegan "meatballs" or "sausage"

Hi All,
I'm hosting Christmas Eve Day lunch for the gang. Vegan daughter is bringing her friend who is vegetarian and has a gluten allergy. We've been doing just appetizers/snacks/munchies/cookies the past few years. By the time the kids (and adults) tasted all the nibbles before dinner they no longer wanted dinner, so I quit cooking dinner!
I'd like to do something similar to cocktail wieners in a sauce or little meatballs in a sauce, like...remember the sauce you could make with grape jelly and chili sauce? You just warmed that up in a crockpot and simmered tiny meatballs in it. Sooo good. Anyway is there a product I could use to make "meatballs" that isn't all mushy and sticky or a brand of vegan "sausages" that would be minus wheat products?
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Found what it was I couldn't find before. Just in a different place now. I shall begin my search. But if someone has a great party dessert, please let me know. Thanks.

Hi All, I am not vegan, but have a daughter and her kids who are. Took care of the grandkids last week while mom was out of state. Did pretty well cooking for us, but wished I had more recipes for desserts. I can usually do OK with cookies and no problem with pies. My husband's birthday is coming up and I'd like to offer a dessert, not necessarily cake, to everyone. I prefer having one thing that the whole gang can eat, without making a big deal of it. Any suggestions?
There used to be a spot at the top of the discussion group page that indicated how many recipes there were. Don't see that anymore, or am not recognizing it as such.

I just posted this yesterday. Hubby is not vegan, and said I nailed it on this recipe. Enjoy!

Vegan recipe in contest...

Hey Y'all!

There's a vegan recipe (chocolate avocado pudding) that is really really good in the "recipes for love" contest! Looks like it's made it to the top three!!!

I just think this is great. I feel like a lot of times people are not interested in trying or hearing about vegan recipes, so the fact that this recipe is getting so much attention is great to me. I tried the recipe, love it, and voted for it! I think we all should :)
