*Maybe if I act nonchalantly nobody will notice that I missed a good chunk of Vegan MoFo and I've been hiding from the world for a couple of weeks*
Thank you for all the encouragement! You guys are the bestest! I promise I am done being a slowpoke and I will work hard at getting this e-cookbook finished as soon as possible!
The mister and I celebrated Thankspiggin' a couple of Sundays ago, and now we're ready to celebrate Flakemas whenever we get the first good snow of the season. Flakemas will be all about celebrating the purdy snow, the cold weather, the purdy lights and decorations around town, eating festive cookies, gift-giving, and whatever fun stuff we feel like celebrating. There will be snowy movie marathons and plenty of hot chocolate and sweet treats! I like the element of surprise because we don't know for sure when the first good snow of the season will be. Bring on Flakemas! What's with all the made up holidays, you ask? Meh. I'm bored with all the traditional stuff.
What I am not bored with is good food! Particularly cookies.
Awful pictures, awesome cookies! I knew I wanted to make these as soon as I saw them on Shelly's blog, and I have already made them several times. These ganache-filled, thumbprint Peanut Butter Cup Cookies deserve some major Blog-Love!
Today's Blog-Love goes out to Shellyfish @ Musings From the Fishbowl! Shelly's blog is très fabuleux (totally had to use google translate!) There's the délicieux side of Shelly's blog, where you will find lots of vegan recipes in a brand new and neatly organized recipe index, and there's the super crafty side of Shelly's blog which will make you *squee* at all her W.I.P Wednesdays adorableness! If you're lucky enough you might even catch a glimpse of her little Guppy, the official Sprinkle Sprinkler! Check out Shellyfish's blog! :)
I had to add some extra ganache because for some reason I was all prudish and dainty with the pre-baking application of the chocolate and they didn't have as much ganache as they should have. I felt pretty badass about making them with my own homemade peanut butter, brown sugar, and brown rice milk. You must make these cookies! You must! I'm telling you they're the bomb-diggity-bomb-bomb! Check out Shelly's recipe!
PS: I'm thinking about writing a "Happy Post" that I can use to cheer me up whenever I have the mean-reds and I want to hide from the world. It would consist of a few of the things that never fail to make me laugh or at least smile. What do you think? Does that sound really cheesy or would you be interested in reading a Happy Post?

UPDATE: Looks like I'm on YouTube now. I made a few cooking videos. Let's see how long that lasts. They are ASMR-friendly videos with no talking or background music, only cooking sounds. ASMR videos have helped me cope with anxiety, so I thought I'd try to make my own. If you're one of those people who don't experience ASMR, then the videos might seem a bit... *odd*.
