I’ve had a busy day in the kitchen whipping up a light, fat-free, vegan dessert.  Kidding.

cream and eggs


I also added lots of sugar and vanilla extract to the batter.  Which I proceeded to drip and dribble all over my coutertops. Oh well.  The final result is so.well.worth.it.

Sorry to tease, but that recipe will not be ready for a few days so in the meantime, may I suggest a few other options that are similarly decadent to what I just made:

Creme de Menthe Bars (Vegan, GF, no bake)

I mean, life is short.  Enjoy desserts.  <– I do.

And yes, I cook with dairy now.

Thanks for filling me in on my last post about if you make returns or not.   Most of us are not fans of going back and returning things, but hey, don’t waste my own money is what I remind myself when I don’t want to do it.

And holy nut butter fiends.  But I expected that. Thanks for letting me know what your favorite nut butters are.  And if you’re a fan of the el cheapo stuff like I may or may not be.  Ahem.

1. Are you a messy cook?

I keep an extremely clean and neat house.  Like, messes really are not found in my house.  It makes me anxious and antsy to have things in a state of disarray, messy, out of place, and unorganized. I really cannot rest until things are neat, clean, and tidy!

When cooking, I am usually a fairly neat cook, and I tidy as I go.  I try to not let every single spatula, measuring cup, bowl, and spoon I own end up out of the cupboards just strewn about or dirty as many dishes as possible (my mother is famous for that!)   That visual state of disarray makes me cranky!

Of course, some messes happen.  Like when you know you have to drop your kid off at preschool but really need to get something in the oven, drips and dribbles happen when rushing.  But I cannot do anything else until I do the dishes.

I could never have people over and entertain and then go to bed with dirty dishes or a messy kitchen.  I could never even fall asleep knowing that was all downstairs waiting for me!

There are worse traits than wanting to be clean and neat, right?

2. What have you made today, this week, or lately in the kitchen?  Or anything that you’ve made recently that really put a smile on your face?

Prior to today’s creation, I made Dark Rum Caramel Sauce over the weekend that was splendid.
