A Fresh Dille

img_1656happy birthday mom.

Although I have been quite scarce in the blog world for the last few months, I miss it dearly and will be returning. Fashion week is approaching and that is just one reason I wish to return. Of course my daily eats miss being photographed and a few of those posts may surface in the next few days. Today is my mother’s birthday so a shout out is necessary. I love you mama!

My lovely parents gave me the cookbook from my go-to place for vegan feasts in Manhattan, Candle Cafe. I have only made a few recipes, but beginning to blog again will definitely inspire me to try some more. The Chocolate Mousse Pie, “I Die!”

This afternoon I will be recreating it to the best of my ability. My sister and I became enamored with it from the first bite. It is so rich and decadent. You would never know that the most abundant ingredient is silken tofu. The vegan chocolate chips and cocoa powder take over all your taste buds and the smooth texture melts in your mouth. The best part is no refined sugars can be found in the recipe because it is sweetened with maple syrup. Naturally, I can always finish every last bite. This is no surprise to those who know me well. Dark chocolate may be my favorite culinary treat and I have been known to eat an unnatural amount of flourless chocolate cake in one sitting. Wish me luck baking this treat tonight.

Some other news I will quickly address:

I have moved from Boston and finished college.

Job searching…Magazines aren’t doing fabulous right now. It may or may not scare me.

After a few months of R & R in Michigan, I am ready to move back to NYC…next week.

My father is turning 60 in two weeks and I will be event planning up until the date of the party.

I have celebrated the end of college years with a few of my high school friends.

It is truly surreal to be done with all schooling. The celebrating has been great, but I am ready for something new, something substantial. I am just not sure what it will be yet. I know it will be in new york. I will let you know.

    Glad to see you back! I love your sweet lil’ blog.
    Congrats on finishing school! Have fun with your mom on her birthday… & your dad, to come. Also, good luck with the job- it’s tough, everywhere, but I bet you would be a great choice for any employer. Know that it might be okay to take “any” job, to get ready for something you’ll love soon enough 🙂 Take care! XOXO
