C is for Cookie (and Cake...and...Cale?)

Grapefruit icebox cookies from the the cookie test kitchen.

It's that time again, wherein I inundate you with some of the latest goodies from Isa and Terry's upcoming vegan cookie book.
Carrot raisin spice chewies, made into sandwiches with Better than Cream Cheese frosting

More Swedish chocolate Balls, as they were quite the hit in Shawn's office.

Espresso fudge brownies - best brownies ever. Yeah, I said it.

Since what this post obviously needs is more sweets, here's the birthday cake I recently made for my friend Abbie:
Vanilla Kittee cake brushed with coffee, frosted and filled with coffee buttercream and bittersweet chocolate ganache. Thanks to Mel for the inspiration.

The requisite money shot

And, because I actually do eat real food despite what one may infer from the content of this blog, here are some greens with beans and polenta, plus some tomatoes and wine and garlic and other stuff that I can't really remember:
I could live off of kale and polenta, and I kind of do.

I have tasted three of those things and I can confirm that they are freaking delicious.

1. I wish I had your time to make that much deliciousness.
2. Those brownies are killing ME.
3. I am yet to try polenta, mostly because it scares me a little.

Nice blog. You should post more.

Tracy, you should definitely try polenta! It's cheap, easy, delicious, and versatile.
