Scientists are concerned about the stresses being suffered by The Great Lakes, particularly Lake Erie which is the shallowest and therefore most susceptible to algal bloom which can be toxic. The algae is affecting the fish in the lakes, and again, Lake Erie is most affected and yet has one of the biggest fishing industries. Also, birds eat the toxic fish. The Lakes bring in tourists, on both sides of the border, this is not just a Canadian problem. The photograph shows Lake Erie from space and the blue-green algal bloom which is causing some of the problems not forgetting the chemical wastes which are now causing more stresses to the Lakes area.

The past couple of years I haven't been able to have it because of the dairy, so I was thrilled when I found this copycat recipe! Just use the soy ingredients to make it dairy-free."
