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...
Picture
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!
Picture
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 one morning:
Picture
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!
Picture
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?

Or these?
Picture
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! :)
Picture
Picture
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 and Molly awarded me the following!




The Rules:

1. Post this award with the picture and name of whoever awarded it to you

2. Do the stuff

3. Award to 7 others and tell them you did so

The stuff:

1. Name 3 things that are lying right next to you

2. Name 2 foods that you cannot live without

3. Name 1 thing you did today 


All righty!

1) My bamboo that I've had for about six months.  That's quite the accomplishment fo me as I have a very black thumb!  Proof of that is my cactus cemetery.  Has anyone else ever shriveled a cactus to death?  It's very sad! :(
Picture
2) A sketch that I did of some flowers:
Picture
3) Daily sudoku puzzles:
Picture
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:
Picture
Picture
Picture
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 ;) 
Picture

1) Olivia @ Little Health Junkie
2) Ann Claire @ The Flourishing Foodie
3) Ryan @ Aloha Appetite
4) Whitney @ Vegan Sunshine
5) Kayla @ Little Miss Healthify

Awesome cake!

Everytime I take my 8 year old sis with me to the grocery store she buys a small bag of those snackimals. I can't eat them because they have evaporated cane juice in them and that makes my head spin around in circles :P But my sis sure likes them!

Oh and veggies on PB doesn't sound bad at all! Everything tastes better with a little peanut buttah on top :)

I went through a phase where I'd do sudoku puzzles everyday during lunch. I should get back in that habit!

Veggies and peanut butter is yum! I usually mix the peanut butter with some rice wine vinegar, a bit of honey/brown sugar and sesame oil to make a thai (ish) peanut sauce.

Mind sending me a slice of that cake? ;)
