And by lazy MoFo, I mean lazy mother-- shut your mouth! No recipe this time around, because I can't give away all the goods! I will, however, exercise your salivary glands with some exciting food porn! Ready?! Wait! Let's add another exclamation mark first! .... !
Breakfast. Most important meal of the day. The meal I often neglect and skip over entirely most days. When I have time, this happens. Breakfast nachos. Greatest thing ever invented. Tortillas make everything at least 40% more awesome. Fried tortillas, even better. If I had a restaurant, I'd put this on the menu.
Soul food night happens pretty often around here. Mac 'n cashew cheese is a staple of this household.
Most of my time has been spent baking. Above are some fun peanut butter & jelly cupcakes. Peanut butter cake, filled with strawberry or grape jelly, topped with whipped peanut butter frosting & drizzled with jelly. If you didn't know, I run a small batch vegan baking operation out here in Los Angeles. Check it out: www.twicebakedvegan.com
This is what I like to call the breakfast cupcake. Maple cupcake with creamy maple frosting and topped with candied coconut bacon. These were a special order for a dear friend's birthday. He's a big fan of meat and meat products, so this was my way of showing him how awesome animal-free food can be. Candied coconut bacon melts all hearts. Needless to say, they were the talk of the party.
I also made some special birthday cuppies for my boyfriend. Caramel-filled chocolate cupcakes topped with creamy, rich chocolate ganache, salty pretzels and then drizzled with more caramel. Pretty insane.
And for good measure, here are some mocha chocolate chip cookies. All the perk of coffee in a convenient cookie! Woo!
More to come! Also, if you're in the area, I'll be vending all sorts of baked goods at the Vegan Halloween Event in Eagle Rock later this month. More info here.
