I have also been writing a lot about vegan baking lately:

For example, my friend took me a networking event at Olives New York (I enjoy that the NY Mag review says he “has a genius for artful, HungryMan dishes). It just so happened that there was *another* event going on there with the folks from Nascar. (One of the Nascar security guard asked my friend and I if our event was a singles event. Which I would like to proudly point out it was NOT.) So…another friend and I were due at a music thing, so I had to bow out of networking early…and as we were leaving, one of the Nascar PR ladies said, “Oh! Do you want a goodie bag?” and my greediness got the best of me and I said, “Yes.” So…in addition to a wine tote and a big wooden paddle, I also got a copy of his book about Olives.
Fast forward about a week or so and I get an email from a friend about an event at The Libertine featuring — you guessed it — Mr. English and his line of pots and pans. I got to sit right next to him and try all sorts of dishes like his biscuits and lobster salad and sliders and bangers and mash and sticky toffee pudding. (No toad in the hole though.)
The *best* part is that his cookware is in the mail and I will get to try it out. (But I am really not sure what to do with his Flavor Perfections.)
It seems Twitter may be the end of this blog. But! It has been a loyal friend for almost two years now…so I return with my proverbial tail ‘tween my proverbial legs.
Here’s what you’ve missed:
Last week was the Cupcakes Take the Cake 4-year blogiversary party…in which the leading ladies of cupcakes celebrated their venture and handed out TONS of free stuff. I was too late to get an actual raffle ticket, but was nonetheless the lucky recipient of Santa and snowman cupcake toppers (disembodied heads!) and 500 cupcake liners. So…as soon as my vegan baking fervor diminishes, I shall have to make some cupcakes. Ideally before next Christmas so Santa and the snowmen get some action before it is entirely inappropriate…
