Peppermint Chocolate Truffles

December 19, 2015 Recipes, Sweets

Happy birthday to me… Almost! I am so excited around this time of year, as I have told you many times. But that’s okay. Let me tell you one more time: I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR OMG GIVE ME ALL THE SNOW. The only downfall to this time of year is how many scheduled events there are to attend. Don’t get me wrong; I love going places.

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

October 18, 2015 Recipes, Sweets

Let’s firstly send a huge thank you to The Viet Vegan for the delicious peanut butter cup recipe that made these cupcakes possible. I have made this recipe three times consistently, and it is pretty reliable. I would love to have shared it with you all earlier, but they were just so good that we kept eating them all… Even with this batch, I made 12 and told Mitch that I needed at least 8 for pictures. The next morning, I hadRead More

Chocolate + Orange Biscotti

October 9, 2015 Breakfast, Recipes, Sweets

Biscotti is so dang fancy. It makes me feel like a sophisticated, novel-writing coffee connoisseur who folds her legs delicately at the ankles and always holds her pinky up while drinking her tea cup.

I like biscotti with a big cup of hot chocolate while I’m wrapped in a warm blanket against a heater (I know its a fire hazard, mom). I like snuggling up with a good book andRead More

Simple Rice Crispy Treats

September 11, 2015 Recipes, Sweets

Rice crispy treats are like the epitome of camping. They are always held in the left hand while the right hand holds an impaled marshmallow toasting above the bonfire. A vegan marshmallow, that is. This labor day weekend, Mitch and I spent the night with Drake and Marina, two of our very bestest friends, and we had the lovely opportunity to spend it in Marina’s 110-year-old log cabin. This was a real life log cabin, people. It was everything I had always hoped aRead More

Vegan Coconut Cake

September 3, 2015 Recipes, Sweets

This cake is both the most decadent and the most nutritionally detrimental item I have ever made before. I should make a warning that you should only ever make it for special occasions because otherwise you might explode from eating all of the junk in here. It really is sinfully good, though. I created this recipe impulsively while entertaining the possibility of making my own wedding cake someday. For the last year or so of our relationship, Mitch and I have planned toRead More
