Lemon-Cardamom Oat Bars (Vegan)

I have been baking so much lately, and my mood has improved greatly because of it. I find it so peaceful in the kitchen, with the heat of the oven, the lovely smell of whatever I am making drifting out, mmmm. And of course we can't forget my Supernatural playlist....  Best. Show. Ever.

Vegan Snickerdoodles

I made these the same day as the peanut butter cookies, hence the same looking photos.

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Can you tell I'm excited? No, it's not that exciting actually. It's freezing cold, and quite boring to be honest. Buuuut I did bake some more things! We're running out of ingredients, and no one seems to be buying them, so I've been left with remnants.

Sweet Oat Bread

Finally, it's here! The long awaited post about bread. I made this for my grandma for Christmas, but couldn't take pictures because who would want bread that's been cut into already. So I finally got around to making the vegan version for myself, and I can't wait to try it! It got great reviews from my grandma and aunts, they ate it very quickly!

Vegan Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

First time baking in the new year, and I'm making cookies (and bread, but that recipe will come in a few days)! Going 100% Vegan this year, or trying at least. Last year I went back and forth between vegetarian and vegan. I'm curious how these cookies will turn out, because I used a lot less sugar then it called for.

Au Revoir 2011

Hello 2012! I hope everyone had a wonderful new years, honestly I didn't do anything, I don't think it's that big of a deal. It didn't feel like Christmas, and it certainly doesn't feel like a new year. I guess it's because the weather has been really mild this entire year. Even though it hardly snows here, the past few years it has snowed around the holidays, for when it was on average 8 degrees C all winter break, with no snow, it didn't really feel like Christmas was really happening.

This might be why when I finally got around to decorating a gingerbread house, it was a week after the holidays had ended. And of course, I'm posting it two weeks after. Forgive me? This was the first gingerbread house where I didn't just decorate it like the usual. I spent about and hour and a half decorating my half of the house, while my dad decorated the other half. I quite enjoy my side, I think we did an awesome job on it.
