Winter Solstice Baking

December 23, 2008

I went a little stir-crazy today. After a week of not leaving the apartment and mostly sleeping (see previous post) my body needed to use up some energy.

So after a few hours of packing (we are moving on Sunday!), I decided to celebrate this year’s Winter Solstice by baking.

Courtesy of Veganomicon (amazing vegan cookbook) I baked the following vegan treats:

Bare with me with the pictures, I never realized food photography was such an art, props to everyone who has foodblogs!

Raspberry macadamia nut chocolate cookies: These are chewy and really unique.


Oatmeal raisin gingerbread muffins: Mmmm if only it was snowing…

Gingerbread muffins

I also tried to make Chocolate hazelnut biscotti but they completely fell apart because I omitted the cornstarch- BAD CHEMIST!…(Dobby head pounding go to 3:00min mark)

Gotta go, dinner is on the stove…Bulgur with Broccoli and Spinach Coconut curry.

Anyone wanna come over for dinner?
