Hi fellow bloggies!
Currently, I am still experiencing technical difficulties with Internet at home BUT I’m at the library so I can update my blog for you wonderful readers!
I really miss having Internet, mostly because of you guys.. you always put a smile on my face with each and every one of your comments. THANK YOU guys! I really do appreciate you! 🙂
So, in hopes that you haven’t given up on me, I came to the library to show you some of the eats I’ve been having these past few days. They are pretty random food pics, but hopefully they will entice you. 😀
HempPlus Waffles dusted with powdered sugar with fresh fruit and a dollop of Soyatoo along with Wildwood Vanilla Soyogurt and Barney Butter. Mmm!
Katie’s Dark Chocolate Walnut Bar
This was actually pretty good. Not as good as the Jocalats, imho, but pretty tasty nonetheless. Thanks for the bar Katie!
And thanks to Katie for also turning me onto the Jocalat line.. I decided to try two other flavors!
I had really high hopes for the Chocolate Orange flavor (I mean, doesn’t that just sound AMAZING?), but it didn’t really live up to my hopes. I think I found the orange flavor a bit too overpowering and distracted me from the pure cocoa flavor I’ve come to love. But hey, don’t let my review of this bar get you down, Brooke raved about it, so don’t let me stop you from trying this bar.
As for the Chocolate Hazelnut bar, oh my gosh. Holy yum! This was very tasty and just oh so decadent, it’s hard to believe these bars are actually good for you. Definitely give this one a try.. so good! I’d say both the Chocolate Coffee and Chocolate Hazelnut share the top spot on my list. Yum!
My mom’s traditional “fruit punch” (ponche). It’s traditional that my mom make this for us on New Year’s Eve. It’s chock full of tropical fruits galore. The drink is usually more liquid than fruit, but I’m all about the fruit and sucking on the sugar canes. Mmm… delicioso!
My sister loved Karyn’s so much, we went back two times! I forgot to bring my camera on one trip, sorry! BUT I got to take pics of our New Year’s Eve dinner there.
We ordered two appetizers – the Combo Fried Basket (mushrooms, tofu, and zucchini)
I had two of each (this is my first serving).
Then we had some Vegan Pizza!
This is just one of my the three slices I had… yum-yum!
Oh, yeah! And I also helped my sister eat some of her delicious Shitake Mushroom Soup (special of the day) and the delicious cornbread.
Just for Halie
A reader by the name of Halie recently commented on how much she loved when my mom made me vegan pupusas. Well, ever since she commented, I had a craving for them, and so I called up my mom’s best friend (who is from El Salvador) and she invited the fam over for pupusas yesterday. And she was so nice as to fulfill my request for vegan pupusa (basically, refried red beans stuffed inside masa and grilled to perfection). This was yummy in my tummy! Thanks Halie for the reminder and here is a pic just for you (and the rest of my readers too, haha).
You had to see this coming right? 😉
Made them for my sisters (didn’t eat them, but they happily gobbled up two each. I guess that means they were good..)
Karyn’s Cashew Cookie
Tasted just like a Larabar Cashew Cookie!
Karyn’s Peanut Butter Cookie
Wowee! REALLY GOOD! May be the best vegan pb cookie yet (even better than Chicago Diner’s!)
Karyn’s Oatmeal Cookie
Oatmeal Raisin is my fave type of cookie, and this one is my favorite oatmeal cookie yet! Yea, I know there are no raisins in it, but I didn’t even miss them! The cookie was just so tasty on its own, it needn’t the help of plump raisins at all.
Oh, and by the way, yes, Karyn’s cookies are that large! No exaggeration!
Vegan Sugar Cookies
Another WF Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
WF Vegan Pumpkin Pie and Susan’s Eggnog Cheesecake
That’s all folks!
Foodwise, that is…
The lovely Astra gave me this award and honestly, I couldn’t be more happier! An award.. wow! What do you say to that, except thank you! THANK YOU to Astra for awarding me this and for all you bloggers and readers. You are the reason I do this and I enjoy so many of your blogs as well. I know the rules say that I must award this to 5 other people, but I award this to ANYONE who has a blog.
