Return to LA

Our broadband is fixed! Hurrah! Don’t even ask what happened...it’s a long and boring story of utter incompetence and company craziness.

The good news is that I have taken loads of photos for the blog! The bad news is that the memory card broke and jammed in the camera and we can’t get any photos off it now... :(

However, I do still have lots of pics on the pc. So let’s take a little trip back to my previous life in LA. Oh, it all seems so long ago... I am beginning to forget what the sun looks like... :)

First up, some cakes and cookies... I had to finish up some of the flour, sugar etc in the kitchen and what better way than making sweet treats?!

Some peanut butter cookies from Vive Le Vegan... These are Wee G's favourite.

Chocolate cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World... Delicious!

Some kind of chocolate chip cookieness... I’ve forgotten exactly what these were, however Wee G assures me they were scrummy!

These were pancakes with peanut butter, banana and cinnamon... Pancakes are always good and peanut butter makes them even better!

This was made to use up the rest of my Pinjur sauce from Trader Joe’s. I added some onion, baby courgettes and mushrooms along with some soy yogurt, fresh basil and lots of black pepper. Thsi turned out really tasty.

And lastly something a little bit healthier...

...and some yummy pasta with tofu, broccoli, tomatoes and basil. My favourite kind of dinner.

Thanks for reading :) Happy weekend everyone!

Hi and thanks for checking in on me. The wedding was great and I am now trying to get my life together. I think the peanut butter cookies should do the trick!

Wow, all those sweet treats really do look scrumptious! All the healthy fare, too, looks quite yummy. I'm glad you had a back-log of photos to share while you're getting things taken care of!

I don't know what to comment on first; it all looks so deliciously spectacular!

Hi! Everything looks great -- I really need to try those peanut butter cookies.

I hope you're adjusting to being back home. I'm sure LA feels a million miles away by now so it's fun to see a flashback to your life in the states!

Aww, how cool! I love the look of all those baked goods, and the yummy salads as well. I'm glad your computer's fixed and can't wait to see some Scottish cooking/baking soon!

So glad to see that you are back! I have been so busy workwise- am only getting to play blog catch-up now.

Ah- all your LA goodies look yummy and I think I put on a few pounds just drooling over everything.

Can't wait to read more about Scottish living!

I like how you put the desserts before the savories. My kind of order!

I am also having broad band problems....ugh! Glad yours is resolved.
