Lemon Olive Oil Cake

This too is from Chole’s Vegan Desserts. This cake was super easy and quick to make and it was DELICIOUS! I took it to a NYE party so I wouldn’t end up eating it all myself and I got a lot of compliments on it.

Vegan Girl’s Night!

Before I moved to San Francisco, the girls and I would get together for a vegan girl’s night every once in a while. None of them are vegan but a few dabble with vegetarianism and so we could all eat everything we just made it a vegan night (my girls are awesome).

So now that it’s been 2.5 years since our last vegan night, we were overdue and needed an excuse to go over and see Mayela’s cute apartment.

The Ladies:

Mayela, Michaeline, Michele, Wendy, Lia, Me (Stephanie), and Peanut (a dog)

The Ladies Night exception:

Charlie (and boy and a dog)

The Food:

Puff pastry mushroom/spinach/ v cream cheese things

Trader Joe’s Japanese rice

Pizza (from me-duh)

Ginger molasses cookies

Curry

Lentil soup

Cauliflower ceviche

Booze
