PEANUT BUTTER!!!&Crazy Brownies.

Okay,so when I was in California I went to Native Foods a bunch of times,a couple times just to get their peanut butter parfaits.Which are
"Creamy peanut butter blend with crumbled Boogies."The "boogies" are "Wheat flour, bananas, almonds, oats, coconut, chocolate chips and jungle vanilla. Take one to go!".
I've had the cookbook for a few years now and there's a recipe in it for the boogie bars.though there's no recipe in the book for the peanut butter blend,it was super easy to figure out.

peanut butter parfait #2:
peanut butter blend/mousse
boogie bar bits n pieces
chocolate chips.
this is what they make at Native.

Boogie Bar.

my sister brought this back for me from NYV.i was so excited.then i saw it at the stores here 2 days took like what,5 years to get the other flavours?jesus.

These are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies.The recipe is from vegweb,but I ended up not following it because a lot of the comments said that the brownie part was cakey,and I wanted brownies,so I just used the brownie recipe I always make.Then there's a layer of cookie dough.Best part.And a simple hard chocolate topping.Really,really rich and sweet.But that's probably why they're so delicious.

Southern California and stuff

Two weeks ago today I flew down to LA/Orange County and stayed with friends and went to Coachella music festival and did a lot of other crazy stuff and had a really incredible time.But I have some food stuffs to share.I have a lot of picture on my flickr.

So I was at M Cafe is LA and some middle aged guy starts talking to me about how the earth moves at 67,000 mph or something and then asks what would happen if he took my hand and we jumped really high and if i could jump high and then was like here i'll buy stuff for you and bought me fruit salad,a rice krispie treat(which was freaking amazing,omg),and a 6 or 7 dollar banana chocolate millefeuille.ha.
