Vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a pomegranate twist! Vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free with an almond flour base.
Confession: Lately I haven’t been feeling much like a food blogger.
Let me explain.
I put so much energy into creating eats for the blog during the day that when it comes time to make anything extracurricular, I just can’t.
For example, last Friday night book club when we all brought a dish to share…you bet I showed up with a bottle of wine, a package of my favorite hummus, and a box of grain-free crackers.
And I felt pretty OK watching my friends roll in the F&V recipes while I stood there dunking crackers into pureed chickpeas that I didn’t puree myself.
I blame the season for my slight identity crisis.
It’s hard to show up in all the ways you normally show up plus get all the gifts, send all the cards, and bake all the cookies.
I set an alarm this past Wednesday morning (ONE week before Christmas!) and scribbled out all of my Christmas cards in one furious four-hour sitting.
I wrote my name and address over and over and over again on red envelopes with achey glitter dusted hands.
Last night I had a massive Amazon shopping spree, adding items to my cart and obsessively checking the ship date to ensure arrival before Christmas.
All of the expectation of gifting and receiving can be tough, but you know what should be effortless?
