Maple Pumpkin Pecan Scones (Vegan)

pumpkin pecan sconesHappy Pumpkin Day! It’s been a while since my last post, I can even believe that it is Halloween already.

What’s more fitting for Halloween than pumpkin? At dinner one night this week we realized we ran out of dessert (truly a travesty in this house). Eric suggested making these pumpkin cookies, but I realized we had been eating a lot of oats lately and thought it was time to switch it up. So these pumpkin scones were born, and really hit the spot for me. I still plan on making those cookies soon, though. They look delicious. Continue reading

Vegan Snickers Squares Recipe

Snickerssssss

We had an awesome weekend! It was relaxing, fairly stress free and much needed after a crazy week. We dubbed it the all American weekend because we constantly found ourselves doing stereotypical “American” things…whatever that means.

Friday night we were both too tired to cook so we grabbed chipotle and headed home to eat. We ate on the couch while Eric drank canned beer and we watched “Cops” on TV. If that doesn’t scream America I don’t know what does haha. I had never really seen Cops but man…it was kind of funny at times.  Continue reading

Fruity Pebbled Vegan Cupcakes

fruity pebbled cupcakesToday is Eric’s birthday and I figure it wouldn’t be complete with out some kind of cake. I made funfetti cupcakes a while back and loved the ‘birthday feel’ so I thought I’d change it up a little and make fruity pebble cupcakes. Not only do these cupcakes have fruity pebbles in them, but the milk used to make them was soaked with the cereal to extract that yummy flavor. The cakes actually taste like fruity pebbles! Maybe next I will try a cinnamon toast crunch cupcake…

For dinner tonight we are trying out an Ethiopian restaurant we have been wanting to try for a while, Meals by Genet, on the Jonathan Gold’s 101 best list. We have decided that before we move from Los Angeles we’d like to try as many restaurants on his list as possible. We have only been to 3 so far which leaves 98 more to go haha. So if we stay in LA for another 4 years we need to go to 25 a year…..totally doable right??

Happy Birthday Eric! You are an amazing person and have brought a lot of happiness into my life when I needed it most. Love you to the moon and back.

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a cupcake pan.
  2. Combine the almond milk and 1 cup of fruity pebbles in a small bowl and allow to soak for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes strain through a sieve into a bowl to obtain almond milk. Measure out 1 cup of the fruity pebbled almond milk to use in the cupcakes and discard the rest.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Pour in almond milk and vinegar and mix until combined. The milk will curdle due to the vinegar but this is a good thing!
  4. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until batter comes together.
  5. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup of fruity pebbles into the batter and stir gently with a spoon to combine. Spoon the batter into cupcake pan and bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes. Allow the cupcakes to cool and frost with your favorite frosting!

Vegan Yeast Doughnuts

four doughnuts headerOn Friday I found out that my little brother (the one still in high school) was bullied by his ‘friends.’ Ugh this really irks me. High school can be hard sometimes, I wish I could take away some of the bad emotions he is experiencing right now. I wish I could tell him that when he graduates he won’t have to deal with it anymore. Sadly that isn’t true. When I was in high school I thought once I graduated I wouldn’t have to deal with bullies or see others be bullied again. But in reality, bullying occurs in all walks of life.

On a happier note, Eric and I had an awesome night last night! We decided to go get Ramen at a little restaurant we frequent. I love going there, the owners are so friendly and know our order by memory and their sushi is really good too. After we ate we went to see a movie at the theater. It reminded me of being home and it was nice to get out and do something different for a change. Continue reading
