best brownies,ever
peanut butter swirl brownies.
the BEST brownies ever.
so for testing for the cookie book isa posted a recipe for 'deluxe cocoa brownies' which are the best-dense,chewy,fudgy,the whole deal.they're also the base for the 'chocolate chip cheesecake topped brownies'.
i didn't think that they could be improved upon,but i was wrong.peanut butter is basically,as in is,the best thing ever,so i made a peanut butter topping and turned them into peanut butter swirl brownies,and i think they're like the best thing i've ever baked.okay,maybe not,but they're up brownies,ever.

bridal shower cake.
chocolate cake,coconut milk chocolate mousse in the center,chocolate cake,covered in vaniller buttercream,and more coconut milk chocolate mousse on top.and white and dark chips.

some lady ordered this for her friend's birdal shower.she needed an eggless cake.i won't get into it,but apparently i effed up and didn't write 'congrats pavan' on it,even though i was told i could "maybe" write it,and i the lady haggled me down $20 on the price.whatevs.

i won the first prize!
bleuberry and almond creme danishes.
i made these for last weekend's earthsave canada potluck,which was at jericho beach,and really nice and sunny and lots of great people were there.

this was my prize.

here's some more pictures from the potluck:

raw mousse
basically a smoothie.well,it was just blended fruit...

raw daikon
raw daikon.

he only ate it because it looked weird.

orange chocolate sconed.


banana oatmeal coconut almond muffins.


orange cranberry nut muffins.

from Vegan Brunch.duh.

i got a makeover.

these muffins are ridiculously good.fresh orange juice,juicy crans,pecans...super soft and moist.and i love the crispy edge on the top.another winner.

maple peanut butter.
because y'know,cranberry,pecans,maple...all those warming,wintery flavours,really coagulate well.especially in this heat.

i should also mention that since last tuesday i've been listening to the cranberries almost exclusively.see,i was at my mom's boyfriend's house just visiting,and i wanted to draw,so i go onto his computer and look at his itunes,and randomly out them on.'to the faithful departed' was the 3rd cd i ever bought,but i hadn't actually listened to them in forever.the songs played continuously for like 2 hours,and then that night i couldn't get 'linger' out of my head,and i felt really silly,but i looked for my cds,and i found them,along with a ton of old no doubt cds.
POINT of the story is,i felt really silly/funny/serendipitous buying and using cranberries since y'know,i was probably listening to them when i made these.seriously.

fresh-squeezed orange juice.

watermelon juice.

and i'll leave you with this:

watermelon and juice leftover from cutting one up,a mango,banana,and bluebs.all juicy in the sun.zedohmygod.

actually i'll leave you with this:

You and your danishes... You should go into business selling them. Seriously, vegan danishes pretty much don't exist, and I'm craving them horribly now.
