Father's Day and the Best Vegan Chocolate Cake Ever

Rich and I celebrated Father's Day super casually this year (like all years) with homemade cards and mostly made from scratch vegan cake!

Made with Becel: Jubes' Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my all time favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It uses only 3 tablespoons of Becel per batch of 12 (more or less) and they come out chewy with crisp edges and keep really well after they're baked! I've been making them so often now, it takes me less than 10 minutes to get everything mixed up and into the oven. The add in options are endless!

Lemon Tree Grown From Seed

My pink lemon tree from last year died over the winter, because I neglected to bring it inside. Since Home Depot has an amazing tree guarantee, I was able to bring the sad and brittle shell of a plant back for a refund. Yep, even if it was my fault. It's a little early in the year and they don't have any in stock yet for me to buy a replacement, so I've been taking care of this little guy.

PF Back in Full Force

I took these just before we headed into battle (aka. the vet's), because guess what's back?

Vanilla Bean Gelato with Chocolate & Caramel Swirl (Dairy and Egg Free)

It's a good thing Rich hits the gym 4-5 days a week, because I need more space in the freezer for gelato/nice cream so I can experiment with new flavours. I need more guinea pigs! If you read the title of this post, you'll know what flavour I messed around with. There was some leftover chocolate frosting sitting around begging to be eaten, so what better way to use it up than to shove it into some super creamy vanilla bean gelato along with a generous swirl of homemade vegan caramel?!

Green's Vegetarian Restaurant

Last Thursday Rich and I headed downtown for a preview screening of the movie Spy. The movie stars a fantastic cast (Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jude Law, Jason Statham) and was more hilarious than expected, but our experience at Greens Vegetarian Restaurant was the complete opposite.

The food was as bad as these photos.
(Movie screening means no big cameras.)

About

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and make big messes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's super cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!

I currently shoot with a Canon 550D. I've shot with a Canon 500D as well as a Canon Pro1 before I drowned one and dropped the other. I also own a little Nikon P5100.
