And the HH Adventures continue...

I would like to begin this post by saying Happy Veganniversary to me...One year ago today I began my 30 Day Adventure With Raw Food and have not looked back.  One of the best decisions I have ever made.

Ok, back to the regularly scheduled program...I have been anxiously waiting to make this dish. Who doesn't love pasta and cheese...
Baked Shells and Cheese(page 156)

I followed the recipe exactly but instead of using whole wheat pasta I used quinoa pasta.  What can I say?!  I took so many photos of this dish because it was so delicious and I wanted to make sure that I had a good representation of it on this blog.  It was cheesy, flavorful, rich and creamy.  The breadcrumbs on top gave it just the right amount of crunchiness.  Awesomeness!!!

Hubby was working out of town most of the week so I didn't cook much.  I mostly ate kale salad.  But when he returned...or should I say when he and his sweet tooth returned, back to the kitchen I went...

Apple Crisp Muffins(page 40)

"Wow...Wow...Wow...Wow"  Those were his exact words as he was eating the warm, moist, Apple Crisp Muffin and I agree.  I followed the recipe exactly.  I thought that the Chocolate Zucchini Muffins were his favorite but these may have quickly taken their place.   I sprinkled additional brown sugar and oatmeal on top before baking per Happy Herbivore's suggestion.   If I hadn't made these muffins myself I would not have believed that they are vegan.  They could easily be sold at the pastry counter at Starbucks...they are that good!  Trust me, or better yet trust my sweet tooth having Hubby.  Those are his words!  28 recipes done!

Happy One Year Veganniversay to me...Again!!!!

Make it With Love!!!
