End of summer

Hello! Hope your weekends were lovely! I enjoy my days off, and FINALLY got one good beach day in as the summer comes to a close. Nik and I took the train out to Long Beach, Long Island on Saturday and spent the day basking in the sun and taunting waves in the ocean. Love it when a good wave kicks your butt! I packed us some tofu sammiches for a little picnic on the beach. Long Beach is awesome...clean white sand, not too crowded, and the weather was PERFECT. Farewell summer!

Some more Ripe from around Here testers, for Jae Steele.
Peach Pecan Muffins:

Stuffed Mushrooms:

Ohhhhh and I found some Dandies at Whole Foods last week! I ate half the bag as is, before I made myself stow them away so there would be SOME left to bake with later. I made some chocolate walnut dandies, kinda using the chocolate chocolate chip recipe from VCon. Amaazing!

Tofu Omelet brunch on Labor Day. Filled with Cheezley Bacon Chedder, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and sriracha.

Pizza! sausage-y seitan crumbles, Cheezley bacon chedder, pesto, carmelized red onions, and homemade red pepper tomato sauce.


  1. Awww, y'all are so cute!

    Perfect end-of-summer food!

  2. So much foody goodness and I've also been spending time at the beach, how good is it?

    I love the look of those muffins and stuffed mushies, yum!

  3. Everything looks terrific, but those cookies are making my mouth water!
