Good morning fellow bloggers! I hope you had a great week and are gearing up for a great weekend! Any football fans out there? I love mere minutes from where all the action will take place this weekend… I have to admit, I’m less than excited. With an extra tens of thousands of people hanging around, things are already more congested. And street parties abound. Not my scene. If you are anywhere in the area – stay safe!
I am *super* behind on blogging. I’m sorry I’ve been having a losing battle with my to-do list this week and blogging has taken a back seat. I’ve been really focusing much of my energy on helping organize Vegan Prom. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area – you should definitely check it out! Part of my problem with blogging is that I like to read every. single. post. made by the blogs I follow. It can be time consuming if I have anything else going on in addition to my normal volunteer shifts. I will try to catch up on blogs next week – this weekend I need to unplug and recharge (with nature… not computers haha ;p).
Alright, enough chit chat. Down to business!

Let’s check out some fun recipes from last week!
Chocolate Cherry Mocha Brownie Bites from Healthy Helper:
These would be a wonderful sweet treat for upcoming Valentine’s Day. Chocolatey goodness mixed with the sweetness of dried cherries combined with the nutty flavour of almonds & walnuts. These blissful bites are high in protein too! Score =)
Welshcakes from Allotment2Kitchen:
So pretty! I love Valentine’s Day themed treats and these are perfect. Chocolate chips make these little heart shaped treats extra special paired with shredded coconut. One of my favourite combinations! Happy (belated) St. Dwynwen’s Day to my Welsh friends =)
Mint & Pomegranate Raw Cake from Vie de la Vegan:
So pretty! I am partial to raw desserts as I’m not much of a baker. I like how the lime juice would really enhance the flavour of the fresh mint in these little cakes. And the pomegranate arils really make a nice pop of colour. Another good Valentine’s Day option!
As I don’t quite have my Valentine’s Day recipe ready yet, I’m going to share these Sea Salt Caramel Chocolates from a previous year:
Alright bloggers – link up! Don’t forget to link back. And tell your friends =)
