Look what I got today!
It’s a delicious piece of apple pie made by my neighbours, who veganized their own recipe so I could eat it too! Isn’t that cool? They gave us half a pie, so there’s still some left for tomorrow. I love it.
I did some baking myself too:
These cookies are so nice to make… I used a recipe posted on a Dutch forum here, which was easy to do and turned out very well! The cookies ended up being much bigger than I had expected, but that was no problem at all. They were eaten pretty quickly by my parents, my friends, my grandmother, and, of course, myself.
Today, I tried Paulina’s Two-minute Chocolate Brownie Cake, but I didn’t get a picture, because I suck! And now it’s already dark so I can’t really take one either… But that’s OK – Paulina’s picture looks much better than mine would have done anyway, so go over to her blog to check it out!
As Paulina says herself, the banana does add a specific taste to the dessert. I don’t mind, though – I love the combination of chocolate and banana! It was very interesting for me to make, too. I had never made something cake-like using the microwave before, so I was surprised by how quickly the batter turned solid in there. So yeah, I’m glad to have tried this.
As much as I love all those baked goods, I do also eat normal meals. I have the feeling those aren’t as much represented in the pictures I post online, though. That’s because I usually find them less interesting. Most of the time, the meals I make are very simple, like this one:
It’s a tofu scramble, consisting of: garlic, onion, tofu, the tofu scramble spice blend from Yellow Rose Recipes (minus the garlic powder) along with some other spices, chickpeas (crushed and mashed a bit), kale, tomatoes and kalamata olives. Basically, whatever I had on hand. Oh, I also sprinkled some nutritional yeast on top, but that was after I took the picture.
It’s only february, but it feels like spring is on its way. In any case, the sun is shining more and that is great because more sunshine = better pictures, so maybe I’ll be able to take some nice photos of actual meals soon, too, so you don’t think I live solely on cookies and cakes.
