The first week of Vegan MoFo is almost over already! Where does the time go? Today marks the end of the beet trilogy: first I brought you beetaroni, then I brought you a beetloaf, and now I bringeth dessert!
No, seriously! They’re beet cookies! And they taste like sweet treats, not beets! Aren’t they the purdiest cookies ever? Don’t you want to invite Tinkerbell over for tea and pink cookies? I couldn’t stop staring at them while they were baking because they’re so lovely. Mental note: pressing one’s nose against a hot oven door is not a good idea. These Happy Pink Cookies came courtesy of Katie, which brings us to today’s big Blog-Love!
Today’s Blog-Love goes to Katie @ Making Food and Other Stuff! Katie is so cool you might mistake her for Shaft.* Not only does she make awesome food and crafty other stuff, she’s also getting a PhD in Bird Nerdery. Katie is researching the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher (a cutie patootie endangered bird) so she can figure out a way to restore their habitat, which is being destroyed by us lovely humans. Katie is my hero! She’s super fit and strong too, so don’t you mess with those birdies… just sayin’. Check out Katie’s blog if you’re in the mood for something witty, hilarious, delicious, and downright awesome! I’m telling you it’s fascinating! (Like her beet cookies!)
UPDATE: Katie said that she has made these with pureed beets from a can, so those of you who don’t want to touch beets can still make these cookies and avoid getting pink fingers!
Happy weekend! I’m off MoFo-duty until Monday, because blogging on the weekends would get in the way of my slothing around.
