Happy belated Valentine’s Day everyone. I meant to post all this yesterday but just plain never got around to it.
Saturday night I got to hang out with a couple of awesome people, one of which I hadn’t seen in a long time (Hi Carol!). We went to Laughing Seed, a fancy and well-known Asheville vegetarian restaurant. I’d been there once before when I first moved here, but it’s slightly too expensive to frequent. I got the Reuben and it was delicious. The sauce made it.
Sunday my boyfriend took me to lunch at Rosetta’s, my favorite and another mostly vegan restaurant. Everything I’ve ever ate there was good. I decided to get the Hearty Miso Soup Plate, which is a miso soup served with rice and a side of kale. I was super hung over and needed to feel like I was doing something good for my body! 😉
My boyfriend got the chili-cheese fries. His were made with real cheese, but the vegan kind is available too.
Since I received Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar as Valentine’s Day gifts (which was so incredibly thoughtful), I wanted to make my boyfriend some desserts. I let him choose which two recipes he wanted me to make him, and he settled on the Peanut Butter Crisscrosses (pictured below) and the Blueberry Spice Crumb Bars. Both were delicious.
I can’t wait to make more recipes from those two books! Especially the Mucho Margarita Cupcakes – they look awesome?
Do any of you have favorite recipes from those books?

HA! Jenna and I almost went to Rosetta’s for lunch. Wouldn’t that have been funny :p We ended up getting noodles at Doc Cheys though.
I also treated myself to a valentines gift (ha!) and bought myself Vegan Cookies invade your Cookie Jar! I made the Citrus Glitters and the Fudgey Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. Both are yummy!
I don’t have the cupcake book so make the margarita cupcakes next time we hang out! :p

Also I need to make those Peanut butter cookies as the last I made were a bit too crumbly.

Haha, that would’ve been great to run in to each other again! I was really happy with the way those cookies came out. Dave loves peanut butter cookies, but I tried the ones from VWAV a couple months ago and they didn’t work at all.
