Sweetness

In Not-my-street-eats, San Francisco on April 26, 2010 at 11:41 pm

San Francisco round up number two!

All the sweet stuff shall be found here.

Maggie Mudd Sundae

Oh glorious Maggie Mudd and all your dairy free options. We waited outside on a chilly Soy Flandisco day, pacing with anticipation until you were open for business and welcomed us inside.

In case you’re wondering what exactly is happening in that bowl let me explain:

bottom later = warm, dense, fudgy, generously sized brownie.

two ice cream scoops = pumpkin (YES!) and toasted coconut (OMG)

chocolate sauce drizzled everywhere

peanut chunks, too.

topped with vegan whipped cream and a frikkin’ cherry.

Yes, I ate it all. Yes, I passed out mid afternoon with a sugar coma.

On the counter at Maggie Mudd they have a tiny freezer where they keep VEGAN ICE CREAM CAKES IN A VARIETY OF LAYERED FLAVOURS. Always.

Vegan Ice Cream Cakes… READY TO GO!

I wonder if there’s a hypnotist who could help me with my sugar addiction…

Hello Vegan Donuts!

Whole Foods, I love thee for many reasons. One being the vegan donuts that taste like donuts should.

I didn’t even know I was going to be encountering the donuts when I did so… I ate three. Yeah… I ONLY LIVE ONCE OKAY?!

Just like Timmies from the ol’ childhood.

Check her out, in all of her MAPLE GLAZED glory. How could you turn her down? Could you just leave her there.. mingling with the other soulless (read: lacking maple) donuts? NO. YOU GIVE HER A GOOD HOME. A good home complete with all the other maple syrupy goodness you have been hoarding in your body.

Good bodies are made of maple.

PROOF OF MY LOVE:

I ate them all.

Oh, I’m not done.

Check iiiitttttttt!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake with a CCP Topper

Thanks JayMoh! After a long day of frolicking around the city, coming home to this after a dinner treat of Belgian double fried fries was out of control! Spoooooooiled.

Yeah, spoooooooooooiled.

xo.

Oh, and if you don’t get it, CPP stands for Chocolate Covered Pretzel.

Everything

These cookies were AWESOME. Sadly I ate about three of them and then I woke up and couldn’t taste anything. So I packaged them up and left them at my neighbours doors. Sigh. A few were saved for my friend Jordan who coined the name “The Everything Cookie”. My original plan was to make Oatmeal Raisin cookies because I thought my supply of *CC’s was down.  I found the recipe of choice from The Rabbit Food Cookbook and while compiling my dry ingredients it called for coconut! Coconut makes me go wild with love and excitement so naturally I remembered the vegan butterscotch chips that I have been sitting on. While digging those out I found about 1/4 cup of CC’s!

Annnd here they are:

Glorious.

On that day I also fixed myself some Avocado Piit-zzas on Ezekiel bread. Normally these look more like pizzas as they are meant to be prepared on pitas, hence the “Piit-zza” title. However, they are also quite tasty on Sesame Ezekiel.

Mashed garlic avocado, thin slices of red onion, shredded carrot drizzled in Asian Wassabi Oil, and dashed with freshly dried cilantro, S&P. Toasted in the oven until browned. Some day you’ll all get the deetz when I make them look proper on pita!

Waffles

Cafe Eyelevel

“Always vegan and gluten-free options”  – Eyelevel Cafe

After dancing the night away at the 12th Annual Witches Ball at The Seahorse Tavern*, my friend Jill and I slapped on some fresh eyeliner and hairspray and trotted down to Eyelevel Gallery for delicious vegan waffles. They were hearty, full of grains, and smothered in softened slithers of apple and COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM.

Eyelevel Waffles with Maple Syrup and Whipped Coconut Goodness

This Waffle House was complete with a swanky coffee-obsessed man working a compact espresso machine. Oh long shots, how you do me… how you do me.

Also: Check out our sweet gold table cloth !

Can’t wait for the Dessert Spectacular on Thursday. It will have live music, too!

xo.

This is everything I thought to take a picture of from July until now:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Isa’s NEW CCC recipe was utilised here. The one from her blog on The Post Punk Kitchen. These Chocolate Chip Cookies were made for a random Sunday in Summer Bake Sale on my front stoop.

Stacked Pancakes with Blueberry Strawberry syrup

Stacked Pancakes + Blueberry Strawberry Syrup

Summer breakfast of Champions. My own perfected pancake recipe with an improvised strawberry blueberry glaze. Genius, I know.

4 WIld Local Berry Coconut Crisp

Quadruple Berry Coconut Crisp

My dear friend Sarah landed in Halifax from Virginia, went out on the town, got slammed, came home completely smitten with the evening. We chattered and around 2am I had the brainstorm to make a Quadruple Berry Coconut Crisp with Crisp Crust! Alas, she passed out while I was making it and we ate it for many meals the next few days. Glorious.

 

UnicornPie

Unicorn Pie

No unicorns were harmed in the crafting of this pie, of course! The only treasures buried inside are high-bush and low-bush blueberries. Both berries are of the wild, organic Nova Scotian variety. The crust was made with Earth Balance shortening and Speerville Mills All Purpose Light Spelt flour.

There you have it, folks! My first post.
