Happy Easter!!! So, is the Easter bunny going to your house today? He sure is coming to mine! ;) But for now, let's examine some recent eats...
That would be Chef Roy's Pasta from Tofu 1-2-3 along with steamed zucchini topped with peanut butter. What?! You've never heard of topping steamed veggies with PB? Well, now you have! :) The pasta was incredible! Did any of you ever eat Spaghettios? Well, if you did, it tasted like that only WAY better! And the "cheeze" was made using silken tofu! Isn't that cool?!Next up, I made Tara's Pancakes!
Mmm... I think I just found my new go-to pancake recipe!! They reminded me of cake (I guess they lived up to their name! ;) I topped mine with PB frosting (PB, water, stevia), chocolate chips and peanut butter chips! YUM!
I also made Katie's Breakfast Polenta
Not only did I discover that polenta was amazing for breakfast, but I also learned that chocolate and peanut butter pair rather nicely with polenta! As my dad would say, "Who woulda thunk it."
While we're on the topic of Katie recipes, I also made her Gluten-free Pizzert
Ok, I am officially the world's worst when it comes to plating my meals. In spite of the ugly, tan glob above (which my mom was convinced was chicken), the pizzert was incredible as ALWAYS!!! I put cinnamon and carob chip in mine and topped it with PB. Katie, what would I do without your pizzerts?
Have you guys ever tried these?
I'm obsessed with both, so you should really try them if you haven't already!
And in case you're wondering about my birthday cake, I made Katie's Healthier Chocolate Cake
, and topped it with fudgy chocolate frosting from VCTOTW (actually my mom frosted it, and I must say that she did a mighty fine job! :)
The cake was a little crumbly, but it was packed with so much amazing chocolate flavor that I'm sure none of my friends knew it was vegan and whole grain! I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a delicious, vegan cake! :D
And now for the award! Both Tara

black thumb! Proof of that is my cactus cemetery. Has anyone else ever shriveled a cactus to death? It's very sad! :(
2) A sketch that I did of some flowers:
3) Daily sudoku puzzles:
Let's see, two foods I could not live without?? There's no way I could pick just two, so instead, I'll show you two foods I've had recently that I now wonder how I ever lived without them!
1) Ellie's Reese's Oat Bake
I really haven't done much today other than clean and take care of my animals. I think the most exciting thing was eating my delicious carrot cake oatmeal (meals are always the most exciting part of the day ;)
