Festive Sugar Cookies!

I love sugar cookies and think fondly of getting them with a cup of hot chocolate around the holidays. This is my first attempt at making them and let's just say it was an experience..LOL!

At one point during my evening of baking and icing these little cookies (96 in total!) I was sat on the floor, covered in flour in my "Kiss me I'm Vegan"apron, with colored icing on my hands wondering why I started this in the first place! LOL!

The good news is when I finished them I ADORED them! We had plenty to send to my work, as well as my hubby's, and they also thought the little cookies were delicious!

When I got home this evening I even made a few more with toasted coconut!

If you want a good recipe for sugar cookies, try the one in "Vegan Cookies Take Over Your cookie Jar".

Bring on the Hot Chocolate!!!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Coffee Frosting

So this weekend I was thinking about these cupcakes I use to get when I was not vegan. They had vanilla coffee frosting and were so amazingly yummy so I thought I would try my hand at making them in a "vegan friendly"way!

I my base cupcake was from "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World" and then I did some personalizing. The frosting was simple but as I don't own a hand mixer my arms are a bit sore from all the whisking...LOL!

The end result was a moist, flavorful, delicious cupcake! I think I may like this one more than the one I remember from so long ago!

So next time you are craving one of those non vegan goodies, try your hand at making it! You may just surprise yourself!
