Let's get started with today's Blog-Love! (during MoFo, there will be Blog-Love every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!)
Today's Blog-Love goes to Ricki @ Diet Dessert and Dogs! Ricki is the Queen of alternative cooking and baking! She points and laughs at dietary restrictions, or at least she should. Ricki's blog is loaded with vegan recipes, anti-candida friendly recipes, gluten-free recipes, you name it! With her amazing creativity and imagination (and maybe a magic wand?) she can turn black beans into fudgy brownies, and beets into a delicious pepperonesque pizza topping! And by the time your belly is full and happy, Ricki will treat you to funny anecdotes and interesting stories while her Girls try to talk you into slipping them a treat. Check out Ricki's blog!
And speaking of pepperonesque beets...
No, really! Those are beet slices! And they taste totally un-beety! The combination of liquid smoke, along with fennel, spices, and magic dust makes a perfect marinade for the thin beet slices. Don't take my word for it, check out the recipe and treat yourself to some beetaroni! (I love saying that word!)
So, since we're already making Ricki blush all shades of red, let me go on for a little longer. I was trying to think of new ways to support Ricki's EL-LENd Me a Hand campaign, and all I could come up with was that maybe we need to send Ellen tangible things, instead of relying entirely on emails and facebookery and twitterness. Nothing terribly expensive, just a token of our fierce determination - that'll show that pesky Ellen! Ellen is a vegan, so I thought a little Thankful Turkey for Thanksgiving would be fun!
He's holding a sign. Can you tell? I had a hard time with the sign. This is my first non-electronic contribution to the campaign. What do you think about this new plan of attack? If all of Ricki's groupies out there want to join in, all you have to do is make your own craftiness and send it to Ellen along with your own handwritten card/letter. How can she say no to handmade gifts and handwritten notes? Even if you're not feeling crafty, I'm sure even a nice purdy note will be... noted.
Just a disclaimer: Ricki did not put me up to this! This is just me being her groupie! :)
Possibly my favorite Lolcat of all time!
