For her birthday (April 17th) this year she called and said to me “I don’t want you to buy me anything for my birthday, all I want is for you to make me a vegan dessert.” I said “Do you have something in particular in mind?” She said “Nope, just make me something for my birthday.” The first thing I thought was vegan brownie oreo cupcakes.(more…)
