Long time no post

I have HAVE been making things though! kind of...ok not really
I made a skirt which turned out nicely, will post the photo later
actually in general i'll post photos later :)

I've mostly been getting into the whole baking/cooking/eating cycle
I am obsessed OBSESSED with these muffins
I use all fresh blueberries, gluten free flour and didn't have the spices around so I went without and they were still ridiculously delicious
I actually tried them last night with 2 cups of blueberries and non of the topping and they were still wonderful and only like 116 calories each and I could feel they were healthier although in all fact you're only getting like 1/16th of a cup of berries each muffin so...

**CORRECTION: you'd actually be getting 1/6th of a cup blueberries per muffin which is not bad, not bad at all!**

and this quiche but with this slightly altered recipe instead:


1 Package, Firm Silken Tofu
2 Tablespoons Tapioca Starch
1 tsp Curry powder (1.5-2tsp if you'd like a curry flavour - which is very good as well, add a bit and then taste, repeat)
2-3 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast Flakes
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon Salt

I added in cherry tomatoes, black olives and mushrooms sauted first and then stirred in and I didn't use any crust.
cooked the whole thing at 350 for 25minutes
and it was deLICIOUS. next time i'm going to add spinach to make it extra healthy

and AND FINALLY I've been eating a boatload of hummus. I really want jalapeno hummus but apparently the stores by me don't sell any jalaps (grrr!). But yes here's the recipe I've been using:
1 can chickpeas
4 cloves garlic (we really really like garlic)
cayenne pepper (to taste - i like it spicy, i like everything spicy)
3 tbsp tahini
lemon juice (about 2 tbsp)
1/4c water (sometimes up to 1/3c, start with less and add a bit at a time till you get the ideal consistency)

food process the sucker up and serve with carrots, celery and cucs

oh and (one more recipe I promise): PEACH CRUMBLE!!!
actually I'll leave my crumble recipes till next time :)
