Blueberry Banana Pancakes!

Two treats today - a delicious and simple breakfast recipe, and a cooking video of the process and one about the blarg, featured on Leave it Better, a video-based social network where people can share ideas on how to improve their communities and take action to green their neighborhood! Woah! :D

Now that's a goooood morning. :)

This is my absolute favoriteee basic pancake recipe. It uses mashed banana in place of an egg, giving the pancakes a nice flavor and a little sweetness.

Mac 'n "Cheeeeese!"

Hey everyone! Writing you from the other side of the world - I'm abroad for a semester, from now until the end of the year, in New Zealand! I arrived yesterday morning, and so far everything's great! :D

Just writing this is making me hungry...

Before I left, I promised my sister that I'd make her vegan Mac 'n Cheese at least once. I didn't have a recipe, but I had some ideas for ingredients from other recipes I'd seen, so decided to experiment! And a yummy experiment it was, mmmm! :)

Apple Tarte Tatin!

Adapted from Molly’s Tarte tatin, which in turn was adapted from The Joy of Cooking cookbook!

sweet juicy tarty goodiness! (~^_^)~

Tarte tatin is an awesome dessert! My parents use to make it all the time, and is a favorite dessert of mine! Also, I love the complex simplicity of french desserts like tarte tatin. When you look at the ingredients of tarte tatin you will see that it's made of relatively simple ingredients. But! when they all come together, and are cooked in the right way they create a truly wonderful work of art that is pleasurable to one's sight, smell, and above all taste!
