Chocolate Covered Pretzel Peanut Butter Mousse Cake! & VeganHoney

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Peanut Butter Mousse Cake.with black bottom and peanut butter drizzle.fork.
a coagulation of recipes that spawned from me needing to use silken tofu that expires on the 29th and having all these pretzels after last week's glad i did this.i looove peanut butter mousse so so so much!and i stole the black bottom from the no bake black bottom peanut butter silk pie from good.mmm.i really need to marry peanut butter or something.


Vegan Twinkie from Vegan Honey.




Wow,these are spot on.Especially the Chocodile.I love the chocolate coating,it tastes just like that delicious and chemically frosting from a can.More importantly,it tastes just like the Hostess dessert.The cream filling is really really creamy,rich and yummy.Too bad I only have one of each.I highly recommend them.

I don't even like ice creams anymore...

Happy February 25th!

I <3 U Cookie Cake,Fig Not Ins,and Peanut Apple Pretzel Drops

Happy Valentines Day!
I was inspired to make this by Miranda and Robert from Sex and the City.You know what episode i'm talking about.


Picture 892

Picture 896



So for some reason I was compelled to use the chocolate chip cookie dough from vwav to make this.I've of course made it before considering i've had the book over 2 years now(holy wow) but I have another chocolate chip cookie recipe I use.But I made it and good god this recipe is incredible.Wow.and the cookie dough by itself is even make these cookie.Or one giant heart shaped cookie,w/e.
I see Melisser has been making them frequently lately.I completely understand why.

Fig Not Ins from Vegan with a Vengeance.
just like fig newtons.but better.and they're homemade,and you can feel proud that you made cookies that look like they're straight outta the box.did i mention how much i love dried figs(and fresh figs!)and eat them pretty much every day?

and did you know that i only now understand that fig not in sounds like fig newton and is a play on the name.i just assumed it was isa being badass or whatever she thinks she is and calling them not in because being not in is more punk than being in.but not,it's not in said like clever.

because apparently the vegan jason schwartzman likes to eat organic fig cookies with almond myth.

Peanut Apple Pretzel Drops from the ppk cookie book test kitchen.
The phrase "party in my mouth" was made for these.seriously.pretzels(!).my mind is boggled.oh,and some have chocolate chips in them.yum.

Banana Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Rolls & PPK tester cookies!

Banana Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Rolls.
Basically giving into yr innermost desires is the best thing ever.I wuv these a lot.I'm eating one as I type this.I'm savouring the first bite and my eyes are bulging from the sheer intensity of banana and chocolate with an incendiary more-than-just-a-hint-of peanut butter.
The idea for these came out last Wednesday when I was walking to get the bus to go to school.It snowed-ish the night before and I was having awful bowel problems.Like everything was watery and sporadic.So when I get to Main St I have to go so bad that I stop in a coffee shop and go.While i'm waiting I see the beautiful,big non-vegan banana chocolate chip muffins in the pastry case and think about how yummy they look.So I start thinking about baking something similar.Muffins,coffee cake maybe,etc,etc.Then I started thinking about how peanut butter makes everything better(especially banana and chocolate!)and peanut butter-improvement makes me think of the peanut butter cinnamon rolls.So all my thoughts coagulate and i'm like "omgbananachocolatechippeanutbutterrolls!!!you should make them!"
and with my abundancy of over ripe bananas I did.And it feels good.






Banana Everythings from the PPK cookie test kitchen.These are really chewy and soft but crispy enough outside to make a very satisfying cookie.They're wholesome because of the oats and bananas but don't taste like health food.I made some with shredded coconut.Yummy.This book is gonna be awesome.

baklava,,more peanut butter cream cheeze brownies,not so yummy cake,and older stuff.

I made baklava from the joy of vegan baking.the recipe made me decide to buy that book,and the fact that it was 20% off.i don't think i'll make a lot of recipes from the book since there's only a few that seem interesting or exciting,but i'm excited to have a new book!
Baklava from the joy of vegan baking.allie-pie/veruda's porn made me want to make it really bad.
oh and the baklava in awesome.i used macadamia nuts,walnuts,pistachios,hazelnuts and almonds.Daniel is in love with it too.There's barely any left.i can't wait to make it again,really.


and here's karl and I on monday night,just because.

Peanut Butter Cream Cheeze Brownies from Cozy Inside! AGAIN.I made these just 2 1/2 weeks ago.SO good.Incredibly rich,decadent and fudgy.Like more than any other brownie ever.And of course there's the peanut butter.


Marshmallow Mudd Cake
from My Sweet Vegan.
I made this last Wednesday.I was really excited for it and despite looking good neither Daniel or I liked it and were really disappointed.One person told me before I made it that the cake section wasn't very good,but we didn't like any of it.


Here's some stuff from about 2 1/2 weeks ago that I swear I posted about but apparently didn't.Oh well:

peanut butter shortbread cookies.
tester for isa and terry's upcoming cookie book!
these are awesomely melt in yr mouth peanut buttery delights.

Banana Bread.
Recipe from,but I used oil instead of margarine,a little extra salt and 5 mashed bananas.This was perfect.Just what I wanted.I find most vegan banana breads to bee too dry,un banan-y,not moist/dense enough,or too moist/dense and not really risen.But as you can obviously see this rose,and it was perfectly moist and very banana-y,probably because I out so many bananas in it.Yum.I made it Sunday and Wednesday I ate the last slice toasted with peanut butter.



Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Brownies from Cozy Inside.I made these in the summer once.They're my new favourites.Daniel,when he came home on Tuesday cut 1/4 of the 8x8 pan and ate the whole piece.I don't even like cream cheese,but I LOVE these.They're so fudgy and goey and it's all peanut buttery chocolate melty-ness in yr face.

sidecar for pig's peace in seattle,wa.
