Vegan Baking Day + TJs run

by Moratoria

Friday was Vegan Baking Day! And you know what that means…

I actually made multiple things over the weekend. I go a little insane when I have an oven. Okay, maybe I go home for the sole purpose of using the kitchen, fine. But I made cupcakes filled with peanut butter cookie dough! Forgive me, mom?

But my VBD contribution was chocolate chip cookie cake.

Snagged the recipe from Peas and Thank You , made it oil-free (sorry, I can’t help myself), and threw it in the oven at 12 am because that was when I finally got home.

It was so good.

Shared the rest with everyone in my immediate vincinity to do the whole, you know, baketivism thing, but most of it went in my stomach. And I’m okay with that.

I also finally got to make a Trader Joe’s run, thank you very much. I was down to my Costco-sized box of Nature’s Path granola bars and four jars of PB2 with nothing to put it on.

But now, I have this instead.

Healthy. Delicious. And I didn’t have to pay for it. I’m so happy right now. I also got a bag of carrots. It’s my only fresh produce I bought. But that’s because I steal all mine from the dining hall. Right. And our fridge also likes to freeze everything you put it in it. Really, it actually does- it’s so obnoxious. But anyway.

Now I’m savoring what I made shoving leftover cupcakes in my face, telling myself I’ll get back on the wagon after I finish everything. Which, at this rate, might be tonight. Well, you win some, you lose some.

Did you bake and share anything for Vegan Baking Day? What’s your favorite unhealthy splurge? Are you an oven addict?

Breakfast of champions

by Moratoria

I had a kitchen this weekend, thanks to staying at a friend’s. So there was much baking, as there usually is when I’m around one for more than a hour.

I made pumpkin cheesecake. And regular cheesecake. In one. And it was good.

Well, that’s blurry. I suck, guys.

I used SusanV‘s recipe for Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake, tweaked it a little bit based on what I had lying around, and promptly stuck the cheesecake in the fridge because it needed to cool and it was already 2 am, forcing myself to wait until the next morning to have it.

I ate 1/4 of the cheesecake with a tall glass of rice milk. Breakfast. Of. Champions.

Is it fat free? No. Healthy? Not particularly, although there actually isn’t a crap ton of sugar or anything happening. It IS dessert, though. Not healthy baking, not even kinda-sorta-maybe-I-put-applesauce-in-it healthy baking. But that’s why I left it with my friend, so I wouldn’t eat all of it in a day. By myself.

But was it worth it? Hell yeah.

Also, tomorrow is Vegan Baking Day! I don’t know about you all, but I’m celebrating- I’m going to have a kitchen tomorrow. I’m not sure what I’m making yet, though. I’m feeling cookies. Or brownies. Or everything.

And in other news: LISTERIA IN MY CANTALOUPES WHAT. This is not okay. And if I get listeria from the fruit I ate today, I’m going to be SO pissed.
