Maple Oatmeal Cookies

There are some cookies that just get down on their knees and beg to be rewritten.  Not such a tough cookie now, are you?!

Revenants | Cherry Chocolate Chip Vice Cream

Fun fact, Gothic Granola isn’t dead.  Neither am I.  I’ve been Instagramming my creations but haven’t been blogging as I’ve been creative writing and working on other projects.  Since November 2015, I have made several kinds of vice cream (vegan ice cream) including:

  • Chocolate
  • Rocky road
  • Mint chocolate chip
  • Pistachio
  • Cherry chocolate chip
  • Kind of whippy vanilla (that’s a lot like coco whip)

Cranberry Muffins and Loneliness

TC wanted these blueberry muffins.  So I remade these cranberry ones instead.

Cream Cheeze Cutouts

I did it.  Finally, I have made vegan and gluten-free version of Cream Cheese Cutouts that tastes good, rolls properly, and bakes up soft and slightly puffy, just like I remembered.  Why the spelling differences?  Mine are Cream Cheeze Cutouts due to fake animal products; Ownie Mom’s are Cream Cheese Cutouts, since hers are traditional wheat flour, egg, and dairy, etc.

Maraschino Cookies, Music, and Lip Balm

Fun news in my life: I got food poisoning and have been having some ongoing nausea for the last week and a half, hence no blog posts.

Digestive turmoil aside, other things I have been doing include working (open enrollment season! Aaagh!), listening to “new to me” music, instagramming my Halloween socks, following P90X Plus, sorting Legos, and writing.

New Lego Halloween Monsters in some kind of metal music video setup that TC made:

These are not Breast Cancer Awareness Month cookies.  They just…I’m just going to stop here.  TC asked for maraschino sugar cookies and this is what I found.

Sweet Potato Pie, Version 2, Other Baked Goods, and Reflection

A fully cooked sweet potato pie!

For once I didn’t eat plain leftover roasted sweet potatoes. Instead, I baked with them and made a sweet potato pie.  I’m not Southern, so I made a maple-sweetened pumpkin pie with sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin and 1/4 cup of maple syrup instead of organic sugar.  Besides being out of organic sugar and coconut sugar, I’m running low on “white” flours; I used half buckwheat flour in the crust recipe from this pecan pie post.

Ginger Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ginger Orange Booze Cookies, that is.  While I had real ginger in the house, and could have coloured them orange with real turmeric root, I followed TC’s suggestion and made a ginger liqueur and triple sec chocolate chip cookie.  Sweetened with agave, vegan, gluten-free, slow-food, housemade, local… No, I’m not trying to up my SEO. I’m being ironic.
