A woman peddling empanadas on the street of a town in Argentina would not be impressed by my empanadas. Anyone who has ever sampled her wares and given her the thumbs up would not be inclined to do the same after sampling mine, if told that my offering were the same type of food that hers is. Mine are not "authentic", especially in the non-flaky yeast-raised dough (often whole wheat) and the vegan spinach/mushroom/cashew "parmesan" style cheese filling, rubbed with a stick of Earth Balance immediately after removal from my E-Z Bake oven. But that doesn't mean they're not delicioso.
