Then because I'm a nice sister, I made a cake for when my Bro & Sister-in-Law came to dinner. This is the vegan cupcakes take over the world basic chocolate recipe x 1.5 and baked for half an hour in 2 sandwich tins. I also tweaked the recipe and used coconut milk instead of soy and added 1 tsp coconut extract, 1/2 a cup of dessicated coconut and a tin of cherries chopped up (less enough to decorate the top with that I didn't do in the end!) The icing is the one from Nigella's Devils' Food Cake Recipe - I just replaced the butter with vitalite. The chocolate I used was a bit bitter (it's all my local shop had) but I really like this recipe. It's way less sweet than buttercream, which I like but it's so sickly.
SOUP! I love soup when the weather is crap and with the exception of today, the weather's been pretty crap. This is a recipe I've posted on here before and I love it with crusty bread.
The other week I went to meet a friend I met on holiday last year in her home town and the first night we were pretty drunk so I probably couldn't have worked my phone to take a pic of the food, even if I had remembered. But I got pics of the next day's lunch. We went for thai food!
Last weekend was my friend's birthday, so I offered to bring dessert as she was cooking dinner. I made the peanut butter criss-crosses from vegan cookies invade your cookie jar and to be honest they were a bit of a fail. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of molasses. I only put in one but it totally overpowered everything (maybe UK molasses is different??) so I added more PB and it was better. But I burnt the first batch. DAMMIT! The second batch was a bit better. I sandwiched them with vanilla buttercream.
And just to prove that even cute kitties take bad photos (just like their owners!), look at this stupid photo of Jazzy. BAAAHAHAHAHAHAH. It cracks me up. Snaggletoof! haha.
