First I want to thank Cassie over at Vegan Fox In The Snow for giving me the Liebster Award. Thank you so much Cassie....you're so sweet! I had no idea what Liebster meant, so I'm glad that Cassie explained the meaning behind this award. "Liebster" is German for 'dearest' or 'beloved' but it can also mean 'favorite'. The idea behind this award is to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers and show some support.
Here are the rules for winning this award.
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal 5 of your top picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Enjoy the love and support of some wonderful people on the www!
This is very hard to only pick 5 bloggers, because I love all the blogs that I read, so I'm going to pick the newest ones that I've started following.
These are all great blogs, so if you haven't already, go check them out....you will NOT be disappointed!
Sunday morning I made HH's cinnamon rolls. They were just okay. I know, my first HH recipe that I don't love, but that could be due to the baker and not the recipe. After I put the cinnamon rolls in the oven, I noticed that my yeast had expired....oops! They didn't rise, and they were a little on the dry side. As soon as I get some fresh yeast, I think I'll give them another try. I can't imagine these not being good.....
Sunday night I made Veganomicon's Scalloped potatoes. I told Tony what I was cooking for supper and he asked can't you just make them from a box? Oh my...I told him these would be way better and to just wait. Score... again.... for the vegans....he agreed that they were very good. This was actually my first try at making any type of scalloped potatoes from scratch. I have no idea what in the world took me so long to to try it. People, forget the boxed stuff! These are way better and will not disappoint! I can't wait to make these for a family get together. No one will ever believe that they are vegan!
I also made Vecon's Chickpea Cutlets...always delish! I topped them off with some good ole Country Bob's. And last, but not least, I had some good ole black eyed peas to round my meal off. :o) I actually ended up adding some Country Bob's to the black eyed peas too....man was that ever tasty!
While I was on vacation I tried several things that I got in my care package from Hally. One of my favorites was this Candy bar. If you've never had one and you used to like a Snickers, then you will love the Jokerz candy bar. I don't have these where I live, but you can bet that I'm about to figure out where I can order them from. I also had the Buccaneer which taste exactly like a Milky Way....YUM! I didn't realize how much I missed eating candy bars. :o)
Just looking at this picture makes me want another one...bad!
What's your favorite vegan candy bar?
