Currently…

Watching

Nothing much due to time being so limited these days. I have about 3 weeks of shows sitting in my DVR list that I have yet to catch up on, but I have managed to keep up with Scandal and I am so glad that I am enjoying this show again because it almost lost me.

Reading

Tons of cookbooks and cooking magazines.

Food Blogger inspiration is an on-going process.

Plus I have a serious cookbook addiction.

Listening 

Channel Orange by Frank Ocean…no matter how much NEW music is released I always seem to find myself listening to this over and over again…seriously Where is Frank?!?! We need another album…Even Adele is waiting.

Making 

Anything that is quick and also prepping lots of vegan meals these days.

Feeling 

Overwhelmed…working in early education and with the school year coming to an end things have been crazy busy and I feel as though I am in the weeds in terms of life in general. My blog post is late these days, there are piles of papers on my desk at work, I have less time to accept phone calls to connect with friends and family, and any extra time I have is dedicated to sleep. I am so ready for this time to pass.

Planning 

A digital cookbook that has been in the works for quite some time..launching this year so stay tuned 🙂

Vegan Brownie Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 6 Tablespoons water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 2/3 cup vegan chocolate chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

Instructions: 

Preheat oven 350 degrees and line an 8 by 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.

Mix the ground flax seed and water together to make the flag ‘egg’ and place in the fridge for about 10 minutes or until the mixture has thickened to the consistency of a regular egg.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and cocoa powder and set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, place the butter in the microwave for a few seconds until melted and stir in 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Stir in the flax egg, cane sugar, and vanilla extract until fully combined and then add to the flour mixture and stir until combined, careful not to over mix.

Fold in the rest of the chocolate chips and walnuts until distributed evenly, pour into the prepared pan, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes; or until the top has set.

    A digital cookbook is exciting!!! I’m enjoying Scandal a lot too. I loved Edison’s speech about America being great right now vs. in the past. I just hope Jake can get away from Papa Pope. But I’m sure it will be a cliffhanger next week.

      I LOVED Edison’s speech! It was so on point. I am on edge to see how Jake will break away from Papa Pope and I am really enjoying the break from the Liv and Fitz drama; we get to hear all of the other storylines.

    The brownies are gorgeous. And I do love a Currently post. I am watching a lot on my DVR because we’re upgrading the cable later today and I’m worried I’ll lose everything on the DVR. Binge time!
