The mid-week bake!

Tonight I was in the mood to bake. I tried two new recipes! First I made raw, vegan, soy-free and gluten-free lime cakes. And right after that I made a chocolate chip loaf with chocolate glaze. The raw lime cakes were more for me and the chocolate chip loaf was more for Eric. He didn’t try the lime cakes, but I did try the loaf!

The recipe for the chocolate chip loaf called for sour cream. I didn’t want to use sour cream so I replaced the 1/4 cup sour cream with 1/4 cup vanilla almond yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda! It worked out just fine!

And the filling for the lime cakes!

Working with baked goods around a curious kitten is rather difficult. Juniper had a very hard time keeping her paws off the table!

I’ve been mopey off and on the past few weeks. It’s super hard for me to meet people out here and I do miss my friends who all live in different states. Sometimes I feel like I’m just about to hit it off with someone and then the powers that be say “uh uh…oh hell no!”

I was watching the show “Rev.” tonight. The show is about a Church of England priest in London. It’s a fun show that you should check out! Tonight Adam, the priest, was dealing with his lack of friends. Adam said something that basically sums up the way I’ve been feeling….”Where’s my piece of bread? Who’s going to offer me a whole meal bloomer with the lightest sprinkling of sunflower seeds on top?”

  1. I’m jealous both of e lovely baking and the cool temps for baking. It was mid nineties here today. And no cakes to sate my gullet!
