Vegan peanut butter zucchini bread with homemade peanut butter chips

vegan peanut butter zucchini bread with homemade peanut butter chips

Okay y’all. This is it. This is the last goddamn zucchini recipe you’re going to see on the blog this season. I might even whip up another batch of zucchini-infused awesomeness with the shredded zucchini we’ve frozen for the cooler seasons, but I swear to god it shall not be posted until the squash returns next year.
Pinky promise.

Blueberry banana cake trifle with cheesecake mousse and lemon curd

blueberry banana cake trifle with cheesecake mousse and lemon curd

You know why this cake is a trifle? And not an ACTUAL GODDAMN LAYER CAKE?

The first entry I ever posted on this shitty blog would explain that for you. But because I am not interested in having any self-respecting readers schlep back through that verbal mess I produced back when I was a wee babe a woefully inexperienced and naïve blogger an idiot, I will just tell you that in the world of Baby June, a failed cake = a future trifle. So my attempt to add blueberries to a completely innocent vanilla cake resulted in a cake that was undercooked in the center and burned on the outside. So what? Cut off the bad parts; layer it in a trifle dish. No one will know.

Sorry for last post. It was supremely shitty, and I am considering taking it down. Not the recipe, though. Because that was a boss recipe.

Blame it on the writing. From my limited experience so far in the craft, writing a book is sort of like running a marathon—and my dad, who actually ran a marathon once, would probably agree.

Vegan double chocolate zucchini bread

Vegan double chocolate zucchini bread

I was going to write a deep, introspective analysis of all the fuckery that’s been on the news lately when I sat down to write this blog post, but honestly, I’ve already changed my mind before I’ve even begun the second sentence. There’s not really much to say. You can understand.

Instead, I made you chocolate cake.

Vegan chocolate chip cookie dough pancakes

If there’s one internet meme you bother to learn about in your entire life, make it doge. You know, that inexplicably hilarious shiba inu whose face has been plastered on image macro after image macro and has even become the meme of 2014, according to the prestigious publication that is Buzzfeed. The meme through which all of life can and should be interpreted. The meme to end all memes.

Creamy vegan red velvet white hot chocolate

creamy vegan red velvet white hot chocolate

Writing this post is giving me a lot of feels.

You know red velvet? That not-quite-vanilla, not-quite-chocolate cake flavor filled with red 40 and often topped with cream cheese frosting? That other pet poodle of the food blog world which can be and has been added to everything from brownies to blondies to cookies to cheesecakes to pies to ungodly cool whip-cream cheese-cake mix shitdips to heaven knows what else?

Anyway. That was wild, wasn’t it? Making a totally squash-free—even *gasp* gluten-free—blueberry crisp? Ah yes. It’s good to be adventurous.
