RAW VEGAN MYLK CHOCOLATE BARS


HOLY CRAP YUMMMMM. So these actually taste like the candy bars I used to greedily inhale when I was a kid. Sweet, creamy decadence in the shape we have come to recognize as holy: the chocolate bar. When you think about it, there is nothing intrinsically appealing about chocolate; it's brown, solid and sold in unnatural brick or chip forms. But why we love it is because we've got brains that allow us to remember good experiences, like eating a sugar-dense meal (chocolate bars).

CHOCOLATE CHERRY ICE CREAM SANDWICHES


Yummy yummy. Biodynamic cherries are iiiiin at the fm (farmers market) and I could not be happier. Yes, they are $12 a bag but I don't really care. The rest of the year all we get at the fm are potatoes and kale and beets for like a buck a pound. Time to indulge, BB. I think these ice cream treats are sexy to look at but also - hopefully not TMI for you - I came up with the idea for them during some sex. My mind is an explicable tunnel system of random thoughts and feelings. Who knows what I'll think of next... and when. Actually now that I am thinking about this I am really excited for the recipe ideas that come to me on my death bed! I can see how some would see how this blog post was first explicit and then a little morose, but honestly I'm just bein' real. I could be WAY more explicit, believe me, but then this might not be safe for work. I have such a passion for love-making but I never really know if this is the right place to share it. I guess I will find out in the comment section soon.

BANANA BREAD COOKIES with COCONUT CREAM + CHOCOLATE SAUCE


These cookies taste like banana bread. We all like banana bread (except for the crazies). Therefore, we (except for the crazies) will all like these. [Note to crazies: I do love you so, but the fact that you don't like banana bread makes me question your sanity, that's all.]

VANCOUVER VEGAN POTLUCK ON JUNE 7TH! COME!


Sooooo it's going down FOR THE FOURTH TIME! I think the fourth time anyway. Pretty sure we've done four (well, three as of this moment) of these potlucks now. And every one has been amazing. The first one was about 20 or 30 people chillin' in Zoe's backyard (the picture you see above); the next one we had like 50 people show up and it went until midnight. The third one we had to cap the guests at about 30 because Zoe's old place just wasn't big enough (pics below). But now it's SUMMA BABY and we're heading outdoors to Trout Lake! So invite whoever you want and let's keep growing the vegan community in Vancouver! I have met inspiring, passionate people and eaten loads and loads (and loads) of kick-ass healthy vegan grub so I never want these potlucks to quit.

STRAWBERRIES with WALNUT-CINNAMON BUTTER + CHIA SEEDS


 I wasn't even planning on making a recipe for the blog today but this happened all of the sudden and I was like, "Hey, I can take pictures of this." So I did. And now, here you are. Obviously strawberries are their own amazing thing all by themselves, but when you add sweet and creamy walnut butter AND cinnamon (mmm) AND chia seeds (crunch) you wind up with little bites of OMG that are perfectly excellent for your body. Hello, antioxidants.
