Yummy treats I've been making

Oh how I have missed all of you!!!  Besides life / work getting in the way I'd also been having some camera issues.  I think I mentioned this in another post.... well it got worse when I lost the cable to my camera.  Ok maybe lost is the wrong word,  ummmm hid in such a great place I couldn't find it.  A wonderful talent.  Anyone else have this talent?

Here's what I've been up to...

I had a holiday cocktail party, a dinner party for some non-vegans (Big hit by the way) and an Academy Award party.  I was trying to come up with a great "I'm back" post for all of you.  Then it dawned on me, I didn't take photos of most of the food I had made.  Gulp.  Not even with my little wee iPhone.  Epic fail.

Cinnamon Rolls with Cranberry and Pumpkin  before slicing

As I do have some random photos of food and fun I think that's the best way to get back into the blog groove.  Enjoy!

Chocolaty Crinkle Cookies from VCIYCJ

Chai Spice Snickerdoodles
Cherry Almond Cookies from VCIYCJ

I LOVE this soup.  I have made it about 5 times since I found the recipe on the ppk.  It's filling and feels a bit sinful with the addition of cashew cream.

Hot Fudge on the bottom Cake from Chloe's Vegan Desserts

Double-Crust Fudge Bars from Chloe's Vegan Desserts
Blondies from Chloe's Vegan Desserts
Are you sensing a theme here?  I have been having a great time trying Chef Chloe's new dessert cookbook.  So far everything has been a hit... no kitchen mishaps.

Everyone ready for their close-ups??

 What would an Oscar party be without some fun poses.

Because they were so good I thought I'd end with a few more pictures of the Salted Caramel Cupcakes.

Now that I have my camera and cable back together and life has slowed down a bit I'm hoping to post more often.  Until the next post.... adieu.

  1. Wow! You have been making some amazing stuff while you've been away. I've been trying to cut down on sugar at the moment (I am a complete sugar fiend) and this post definitely is weakening my resolve! Must... not... buy... Chloe's... book....!
