362. double chocolate mint cookies.

cookies

What to do when the holidays are over and you are left with candy canes? make cookies!
I love chocolate and mint and the addition of the sweet minty candy cane on top is just right!

and EEK! i can’t find where i pulled the recipe from because I just have a print out of it….So if i find it, i will definitely post it. For now, just drool over the deliciousness.

201. blueberry mint lassi.

Not a very compelling post tonight…things were hectic over here trying to get our house back together after being painted (updates soon!) and trying to finish editing last week’s wedding photos before this week’s wedding. EEK!

Anyway, I managed to throw this quick lassi together for dessert, after seeing it today on foodgawker.

1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup soy yogurt (i used plain)
squirt of agave
4-5 mint leaves

Throw it all in the vitamix or blender and mix it up. Pour in a glass and enjoy!

158. grasshopper cake.

Happy birthday to my husband today! He requested a grasshopper cake, so here it is!

I used the chocolate cake recipe again, from vegan cupcakes take over the world; this time making it two tiers.
Then I made a double batch of the cream cheese frosting from the same book, adding 1 T of peppermint extract and some green food coloring. I put a bunch of trader joe-joes in the vitamix and made cookie crumbs and put them on the edges. Can’t wait to dig in! Who wants to help us eat this all?
