|Mouthwatering vegan for sure!|
I also attempted to make a gluten free, vegan chocolate cake using this recipe. It's okay. I feel like baking is where gluten free is a struggle, at least for me. I've tried a few gluten free cookie and cake recipes, and they just are always a little off. There;s something about the texture of this cake that just doesn't please my tongue, and also I can very faintly taste beans. I don't want to taste beans in my desserts.
|The frosting is the best part.|
In scarier news, I signed up for Vegan Mofo this year! It's my firs one. Last year I had really just started blogging, and I didn't feel ready. I don't know if I'm ready this year, but I;m going for it. I've learned sometimes you have to jump off that ledge of fear. As I've been reflecting on my life, I can see how many times I've let fear stand in my way. I look so forward to Mofo each year, and I really can't believe I'm going to be partaking! They are doing it a little bit different this year. You can Mofo with twitter, instagram, YouTube, and whatever other platforms exist. They also are having Prompts for each day, such as "veganize a restaurant dish", "recreate a favorite childhood dish", and so on and so forth for thirty days. You get an E-mail reminder of the prompts. I was really looking forward to having a theme that I thought of, but this could be fun too. The rebel in me wants to do it my way of course, but I will try to be well behaved, and follow the prompts. This way is just forcing me to plan ahead a little, not be so spontaneous. Some of the prompts definitely require a little thought. I feel like there has been so much positive attention in the media regarding the vegan or plant based lifestyle, so we have some momentum. It's a really great time to get some more attention, and focus on how amazing vegan food can be! Are you participating in Vegan Mofo this year? If not, are you excited for all the blog reading?
