Tuesday Treats

I’m cold! I’m tired! I’m cranky! (wah, wah) Today’s round-up is all about stuff I would like to treat myself to RIGHT NOW. Think of it as instant virtual cozy gratification for the mofo.

Carlota, of the Garlic Pepper blog, celebrates Kid’s Day in Brazil with a delicious smoothie and PAÇOCA for dessert. I’ve never had this peanut-y concoction, but it looks awesome and I feel like I need it.

The Geeky White Girl Grows Up blog features these delicious stuffed cabbage beauties. Cabbage = comfort food. The fact that it’s a grandma recipe just makes it even awesomer.

Everyone’s favorite Megatarian, Megan, made many MANY cakes this week, for the occasion of her Nana’s 90th b-day. (I think we have ourselves a theme here!) Here’s just one of them, but you’ll have to hop over to the blog to look at (drool over) all of them.

There is a blog called Vegan Dance if You Want To. The name alone was enough to get me hooked, but then sister had to go and make gnocchi with cilantro pesto??? OH NO SHE DIDN’T! (oh yes she did)

over on the p.h.d.elicious blog, we have a wonderful version of Veganomicon‘s Acorn Squash and Pear Soup with sautéed shiitakes. Why haven’t I made this soup yet? WHY?

Finally, DESSERT! (yes, I know I had the peanut candy appetizer and the cake, er… intermezzo, but this is dessert, I swear!) C’est La Vegan blog brings us this dreamy trifle. Look at it. Admire it. Make it your own. Eat it.

I don’t know about you, but Tuesday’s comfort-y treats certainly have made ME feel better.

    I just loved to see some PAÇOCA here! I have a friend that is going to the states in March..I’ll try to send you some. This fruit cake looks amazing, and this soup looks like confort food for me.

    That cake is beautiful. I love the natural decorations. That’s instant virtual cozy gratification in my book. Thanks :-)
