Graduation Cupcakes!

Check it out! I made 100 of these for a graduation party last Saturday. The colors, though they look like blue/indigo and yellow, were actually purple and yellow. It was for the daughter of my study hall teacher haha. How much is a reasonable price? I asked for $42, but i dont know what a reasonable price really is. Anyhow, half are chocolate and half are vanilla. The frosting is tinted with some weird food coloring. Is food coloring vegan? just wondering.

randomness. but yummy randomness. ^_^

I went to state science fair this past Saturday (and I got a superior woohoo!). These cookies were made for all of those from my school. Everyone loved them and I have been redubbed "best chef"! (recipe for chocolate creme pies comes from the PPK and VCTOTW)

French Toast that i made for mi madre on Mother's Day! (random recipe from vegweb)

Here is the best omelet in the world! Susan V from Fatfree Vegan's omelet recipe + FYH mozzarella and spinach :)

McDonald's Asian Chicken Salad without the chicken please! I was so excited when i found out that they give you that option! hehe. topped with mori-nu Chinese spice tofu. MMMM! haha i just realized that this is my first posting of tofu. and what a lame post. (i do eat tofu every day though, in the form of some random stir-fry at dinner XP)

Here is one of my recent lunches. Ezekiel 4:9 bread with Trader Joe's Chipotle Pepper Hummus (super yummy!) FYH mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, cucumbers (i know, they're cut funny) and spinach.

Tempeh wingz!!!! i've had this package of tempeh forever and i didn't know what to do with it until i found a recipe for tempeh wingz. and now i am hooked. ^_^ this was my first tempeh recipe (fakin bacon doesn't count) and i am LOVING TEMPEH VERY MUCH!!!!!

okay. this is a replica of the best pasta at BRAVO'S or BRIO. Penne Mediterranean without the feta cheese, please. No, no shrimp or chicken. No, no allergies. I just don't eat them. thank you. (my conversation with the befuddled waitresses haha) anyhow, it's a mixture of whole wheat penne, spinach, sundried tomatoes (love those things), and spinach. oh and pine nuts. SUPERYUM!

okay. that's all today. i just wanted to post stuff so that i can prove that i don't just eat desserts or make them; i can cook real food too! haha

Oh and by the way, Happy Early National Chocolate Chip Day! (It's tomorrow) ^_^

Happy (belated) Birthday to me! and French Baguettes!

Monday was my birthday, so i made Fauxstess Cupcakes from VWaV! i liked them, but i think the cupcake recipe in VCTOTW is better.

This picture was taken after i made vanilla versions of the fauxstess cupcakes. Yes, there is chocolate in the middle!

Here are the apple empanadas that i made for my spanish class' cinco de mayo fiesta. yum!

This was my second batch of baguettes after i was unsatisfied with my first batch, pictured below.

After reading the blog on baguette making at the king arthur baker's banter blog, i felt very much inspired and headed promptly to the kitchen where i made these baguettes. i think i did something wrong though, because the slashes did not open as much as i thought they would. i think that i didn't slash them deep enough but maybe not. anyone know?
