And for dessert....



Must have dessert...Liam believes that no meal is complete without some sort of sweet treat after his meal...and I can't say that I disagree :) Nothing too cutesy for Easter...just yummy!

We had Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies from The Joy of Vegan Baking and also some Lemon Coolers. Lemon coolers were cookies I used to eat as a kid and missed terribly. I came across a recipe and decided to veganize it. They came out wonderful! Give them a try...
