A Treat For Me!

Admittedly, Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I worked last night and my brother is playing a show tonight that I am going up to my parents' to see, so I have successfully avoided any parties. Don't get me wrong. Normally, I love a good party. I just hate getting dressed up.

Nevertheless, I still came home to find a treat on my doorstep. It wasn't candy. Not a little black cat. Wasn't a little green goblin. It was...

Granted, I sent this to myself. But still, it got here just in time to be a Halloween treat! And a day sooner than expected!! With recipes for everything from healthy(ish) applesauce cookies to homemade vegan Samoas (you know, the best Girl Scout cookie ever), this is most definitely going to be appearing frequently in my kitchen. I love cookies.

Sadly, I didn't have enough time or resources to make anything in there before bed last night (our pantry situation is dismal, we don't even have oatmeal!!). Plus, I will be away this weekend at my parents' and then Boston Veg Fest Sunday. I think the Veg Fest treats will make up for delaying the baking madness that VCIYCJ will ensue. Hm. I don't like the acronym for this one. I think I'm shortening it to VCI - VEGAN COOKIES INVADE!! --- Very Halloween appropriate.

I hope everyone enjoys whatever it is that they enjoy about Halloween, whether it be the treats, or the little kids in costume, and I will see you Monday with a Veg Fest recap! I also want to thank you all for your Blog-iversary support, I love the comments, and it kick started my little blogger spark. Have a great weekend!


  1. Happy Blogiversary Gina! You were one of my first you know. :)

    First things first, buy oatmeal. Then you must make Vegan Samoas so that I can drool over them.

    Enjoy your weekend. Wish I could be at Veg Fest!

  2. Mine should be coming today. Looking forward to it.

  3. I'm not a HUGE fan of Halloween either, it sort of makes me cringe thinking about how our children are becoming more and more obese, yet today they are snacking on candy all day (oh, and yesterday, and the day before that, and probably the next week or so!).

    Happy blogiversary!

  4. OMG I had no idea this book had been made. Must get! :D

  5. Lookin' forward to what you come up with from VCI!

  6. We're opposite, I love Halloween but I love Christmas more! Happy blogging to you. Keep posting!
