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

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?

In a perfect world, Baby June wouldn’t have to slave for hours over her laptop struggling to overcome creative constipation and googling how to write fight scenes because to be honest, she has not been in a fistfight in her life and she’s not really sure how she feels about that since it is now such a crucial thing to know for this goddamn story.

Do you listen to pop radio? I certainly do. I’m no music connoisseur (aside from the heaps of classical pieces I’ve learned over the years), and while I do think that I have excellent taste (like every other person in the world) I am not above the Top 40 and such things.

homemade vegan chocolate chip cookie butter, plus a frosting to use it

Confession time:

I hate cookie butter.

There. I said it. I hate peanut butter’s sexier, slightly fatter older sister, the pet poodle of the food blog world and dessert lovers everywhere, the “personal crack” of at least five million Trader Joe’s-shopping, Biscoff-toting speculoos addicts around the world. Bite me.
