Couscous cake, and an update

I made this a while back, and am finally getting around to blogging about it.


Vegan Planet's Pumpkin-Rum Couscous Cake--a ridiculously easy, no-bake recipe that is really less like a cake and more like a pudding. I used whole wheat couscous to lessen the guilt factor. It made a nice breakfast food alongside some almond milk.

Speaking of couscous cake, check out Robin Robertson's blog for a fun couscous cake challenge!

I am quite happy to say that tax season is over--AND I leave TOMORROW for my vacation to SAN FRANCISCO!!! I'll be gone for a little over a week. I'm planning on doing a bit of blogging while I'm there, so my next post will probably be from the west coast.

See you soon!

San Francisco is an amazing time, the last time I was there, I happened upon a old fire truck that would take you across the Golden Gate bridge, it was the best time! Check it out if you can.
Have fun! I can't wait to hear about it.
