Cooking With Bracket and Friends

Day off, and I'm in the kitchen. See those yellow things in the bowl on top of the cookbooks (only a small part of the whole collection, but that is another blog for another time) - the yellow things that look like little lemons? They are not. They are Key Limes from the tree outside my door. The avocados in the bowl were also picked from right outside my back door. The avocado crop is just about done, and I've got the Guacamole Waistline to show for it. Baskets of avocadoes made their way to my co-workers who were eager to "help" me keep my weight to a reasonable spot.

It's a darn good thing I'm better at following recipes than I am at photographing food, nu?




The Maple Banana Bread shown here is from my dear friend Bracket's cookzine Recipes from the Batcave. I added walnuts. Bracket may not due to her super amazing young vegan son, Oliver, who is so outstandingly brilliant and charming, and all around adorable, that he's likely to have his own television show in the not too distant future. In the meantime, he stands beside Mom with spoon in hand, helping and giving her big thumbs up on the Chickpea Cheese that he's got me cramming into Mah Belleh all the time.

The cookbook open in front of Bracket's cookzine is Babycakes by Erin McKenna. Today I made the Meyers Lemon and bing cherry cupcakes (they are in the pink ramekins atop the cake plate, smaller ones - still not iced- on a plate behind the flowers, and also in the heart shaped ramekins because I love little cute baking dishes and individual servings. You can admire their cuteness at the top of this post.

Next up will be yet another batch of Bracket's Broccoli & Lemon Orzo Soup (because I am unable to prevent myself from consuming whole batches of it and I really do want some in the freezer for lunches.)

I hope you are enjoying VeganMoFo as much as I am because this is the very best idea I've had since going vegan, and that was a long time ago.
