Turns out frozen tamales from Trader Joe’s are pretty much perfect toddler food! Just accidentally over-steam them and they turn into corn mush. I picked out the chiles and he did the rest.
He’s also just fed himself a bowl of plain whole milk Greek yogurt and peaches sliced into fingers, so I’m pretty pleased.
I made this super-delicious raw chocolate-swirl “cheesecake” last night. I still don’t think these vegan cheesecakes taste anything like real cheesecake, but then I don’t really like cheesecake. I think these versions taste way better.
This one is made with blended cashew cream, like the previous ones I’ve made, but also has some raw zucchini blended in. (I forgot to peel it, hence the light green tint.) A couple of notes if you’re going to make the recipe- the author calls for a 6-inch square tupperware to make it in. I used a 7 inch springform instead and cut it into tiny wedges. My chocolate swirl wasn’t runny enough to pour, but I managed to make it look pretty anyway.
The chocolate nut crust is ah-mahzing. With zucchini in season, this is a really great late summer dessert; fancy enough to serve to guests, and easy enough to whip up anytime you want to treat yo’self.
Yes, this is a real article.
Love love love.
Found this at the grocery store in Bellingham. It was delicious! Just cold brew, half and half, and sugar, yet it tasted lightly chocolatey.Edited to add that I don’t know why this posted twice, but it’s a good opportunity to mention that if you’re looking for hard-to-find grocery items in the Pacific Northwest, try Haggen. We found both Cheerwine and the Icelandic yogurt skyr there.

Snack time. Summer is the best.

Free from Thrifty Foods, may I add. And it’s darn tasty!
