Will all of this gallbladder drama and me being sick so much (Which is pretty odd for me, to be honest) I’ve completely forgotten that my blog is one year old!!
That’s right folks, A Tablespoon of Liz has reached it’s first birthday!
I remember when I first started, I had just a couple of readers and commenters, and now it’s grown so much, I really can’t thank all of you enough!
So, in proper blogaversary fashion, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite recipe posts from the past year.
Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes
These are really quite marvelous… Banana cupcakes with peanut butter cream cheese frosting… the frosting is really my favorite. It’s really dense and rich, but not overly sweet because I didn’t use as much sugar as normal frosting recipes. (Oh, and they’re vegan!)
These are so good… and so filling! The texture of these is amazing, they’re chewy, it’s like you almost need a knife to cut through the, which is awesome, because there’s not a lot of vegan food you need a steak knife for!
Magic Vegan Brownies
These, as I stated in the actual post, are better than the box. I remember being so excited when I finally tasted these, as it’s so hard to make things that taste better than the box mix these days. They’ve got those things down to a science, that’s for sure. But these brownies are rich, and fudgey, and decadent, you won’t be buying the box mixes anymore!
Peanut Butter Banana Bites
These are the perfect snack. No joke. Just pop one, or eighteen in your mouth, and you’ll be all set. And never forget- there’s always money in the banana stand.
This is my aunt’s recipe, and even though she makes it better than I do, it’s still amazing. I love how chunky it is, and it’s got crazy amounts of flavor. with avocados, black beans, corn, lime juice, and everything else, this is the perfect dip. And it’s so colorful!
Strawberry Shortcake Cookies
This is one of the most popular recipes on my blog, and I have to admit, these little cookies are very near and dear to my heart. They’re just so cute, and scream spring and tea party to me. If there was an award for most adorable cookie, I just can’t help but think that these ones would win. They’re vegan, and they taste just like strawberry shortcake, but you don’t have to bother with making all those different components and whipping up the cream.
So, there you go, a montage of some of my favorite recipes from the past year. Man, I can’t believe it’s been a year already, time really flies.
I really hope that I start feeling better soon (for good!) and that I can catch up on homework and work and everything so I can really focus on blogging. I’ve really come to love it, and it’s terrible, but I think the last time I baked something was right before Christmas. : ( I’ve still got Christmas cookies in the freezer that need to be decorated, so you can see how far behind I am. But I promise soon I’ll be back in action, just wait!
And thank you all once again for reading and leaving comments, it really means the world to me!
