Fall Break

Last weekend was fall break, so I had a nice, long weekend to relax with my family and boyfriend. We didn’t do too much, but we did venture into DC on Sunday for the National Equality March. It was very cool to see so many people out there marching for something they believe in. We also made banana’s fosters vegan ice cream, based on Vegan Dad‘s vanilla recipe.  We have previously made his chocolate ice cream, and both were delicious.  Sorry for the terrible pictures!

Vegan Cupcakes!

Right now research involves a lot of tinkering with electronics to see what effects they have on measurements, so I don’t have anything particularly interesting to report at the moment.  So instead I thought I would do a quick post on vegan baking.  This week I made a batch of Oreo cupcakes for the weekly physics coffee talk, and they were a big hit!  A cupcake is pictured below, and was made from Kittee Cake and “Fluffy Vegan Buttercream Frosting” (which I know I found online somewhere, but can no longer locate.  I would highly suggest making these yourself – they’re easy and really tasty!
