Marinated Asian Tofu v2.0 and Cupcakes!

So I’ve been in the kitchen cooking like a fiend and can’t eat everything fast enough! I definitely eat better now and more frequently since dedicating myself to veganism and am having a blast trying out all kinds of new recipes. So first up is a salad I made for lunch to use up some of the tofu from the other night:

The dressing is what I like to call “Nooch Crack”! I’m telling you, it is addictive  – whenever I make a batch I find myself putting it on everything. Its proper name is Hollyhock Dressing and you can find the recipe here. Seriously, go make it, you won’t regret it…

Next up are vegan cupcakes – yes that’s right cupcakes! I’ve never been much of a baker because its always seemed restrictive to me (I don’t like to measure stuff) but these were actually really fun to make! They are Coconut Lime Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World , of course. Here they are coming out of the oven:

 And here is one fully decorated (my first time!)

Isn’t it adorable?! And OMG they taste so good – you can fool anyone with these – they taste just like those fancy boutique cupcakes that are all the rage, but they are better for you because they’re vegan. I had so much fun making and decorating these. I totally got a sugar buzz because I ate so much! One out of the oven because it was “ugly”, then had to try the frosting, then I messed one up because I’ve never used a decorating tip, then more frosting that oozed out of the bag… you get the picture. I think there is one right now in the fridge tht is less than perfect…
