who doesn't need one of these!

I found these very cool cupcake holders today! They will be perfect for sending to work and school in the boys' lunches....I also picked up one for Lydia for future use. I found them at Sur La Table for $3.00 each. They also have a website....here! So fun!

Quesadillas!!!



So I whipped up some quesadillas the other night....it is such a quick and yummy dinner!
I suggest that everyone make these soon....get creative with the filling...the combinations are endless.

I made these with refried beans, black beans (mixed with some cumin, chili powders, salt and fresh garlic), tomatoes, green peppers, onions and FYH soy cheese on whole wheat tortillas. I baked them for about 25 minutes at 375 f without the top tortilla...added the tortilla top and baked for another 5-10 minutes. Then I added a dollop of vegan sour cream and salsa. YUMMERS!

Finally....a new illustration!

It's been a while....busy with the kids and such. Meet Jess the Vegan...she's for sale so contact me if you're interested.

Cupcake success!!!!!


Well...the four dozen cupcakes turned out faboo!!! There was not a cupcake in sight once the baby shower was over! I made the cookies 'n cream, vanilla with raspberry buttercream (also added a dollop of raspberry preserves into each cupcake before baking for a fruit center), carrot cake with cream cheese icing and coconut heaven. All were from VCTOTW except the coconut which were from Vegan with a Vengeance. I thought I would stress out with so many cupcakes....but it was actually quite fun. I baked them the night before, made the icing the next morning - let chill, then iced the lovlies in the afternoon. I only wished there had been extras to sample...but we did have fun licking the icing bowls!!!
