Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

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 had six left. The morning after that (the day I finally had time to take some pictures), I had four sad little spared cupcakes.

Simple Tofu Scramble

This really is a simple recipe. I mean, it’s not even really so much a recipe as much as it is a source to know what yummy stuff I suggest putting in your tofu scramble.

You really can put whatever you want to in there! I seemed to get a great response from everyone when I put the simple hummus wrap suggestions up, so I thought that I would do something like that again here.

Chocolate + Orange Biscotti

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.

But most of the time, I’m not fancy enough for a beautiful coffee-shop image. 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 and feeling fancy in my own comfy way.

Simple Lunch Wrap

I have been working through something very difficult for the last few days, and I think it’s finally time to admit it and talk through it with you all.

I originally wanted to publish a post on Monday. As in three days ago. But something occurred on Sunday that I couldn’t have prepared myself for and that I couldn’t have set time aside for beforehand. You see, on Sunday afternoon I finally logged into Netflix for the first time on my own, and I lost a battle with my curiosity.

Super Simple Oatmeal

This recipe is super simple, and it is my go-to for breakfast. I recently read and article by a man who went on a spiritual buddhist-inspired retreat, and he commented that during it they always ate oatmeal/porridge for breakfast because it was simple, nutritious, and filling. I loved that idea, so I have been incorporating oatmeal into my breakfast routine more and more. During the morning time, I’m not really looking for something spectacular or taste-bud-alteringly delicious, but I was afraid of maybe becoming bored of the meal if I had it every day.
