Hmmm....

So apparently I've just been living off of not exciting food lately. Which is true I guess. Just haven't been making anything to exciting. Yesterday and today I've made some pretty yummy stuff. I finally got one of those cute little cupcake tins, and my sister let me look at her copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, so I made some yummy baby vanilla cupcakes with green vanilla frosting. They turned out super cute, but it took forever to bake them, since one recipe's worth of batter makes about 40 cakes- so 3 1/2 batches. Oh well, they were so cute it was worth it. The bad thing that we discovered though, was that it was really easy to eat more than one (or four) and feel like you haven't really had any at all!


For dinner tonight Shannon was talking about making curry, so I decided I wanted to try to make some sort of yummy curry coconut soup. I mashed a few different recipes together and ended up using garlic, lemongrass, ginger, mushrooms, red pepper, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice extra firm tofu, coconut milk, soy sauce, red Thai curry paste, and a little sugar and salt. It sounds like a lot, but its actually really super easy. None of the pictures were pretty though. =(

Finally for dessert (besides all the mini cupcakes I had today), I mixed some brown rice with left over coconut milk, cinnamon and sugar. Yummy!!

Those cupcakes look pretty good.
"Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World"? Vegan cookbooks have the best names.
I feel like I've had that rice/coconut/cinnamon concoction before, but I don't know what it's called, do you know?
