Hi Herbies! Thanks so much for all the support and congratulations yesterday! I was touched by all of the comments left on this blog, facebook--and that were sent in through twitter. It really does mean the world to me to have your love and support!

In case you missed the update:The Director of Food & Beverage, the Executive Chef and the Sous Chef all really enjoyed the food I provided and approved my menus!!

Now--on to the cupcakes!

These cupcakes come from my cookbook and I just love making them around the Holidays. Since they're chocolate cupcakes, they're a natural crowd pleaser, despite being a healthy option.

But perhaps what I loved most about the California Raisins is that every weekend I was able to ...

In Monday's post where I talked about my vegan diet, I mentioned how my breakfast always involves a fruit and a grain. That grain is usually uncooked rolled oats. I like the "crunch" and overall texture the oats provide my tofu yogurt and I also like how they make smoothies more filling. (Plus they're easy and convient, who am I kidding?).

Still, despite this love for uncooked rolled oats, I've been slow to jump on the oatmeal ...
