It’s hot as shit (for us) in the city by the bay so we’re all gonna eat this raw chocolate cherry mousse cake and then sit in the sun and sweat it out, girl. Water weight is still weight, and I say get rid of it!
Namely Marly has done it again, this time with Gooey Neopolitan Brownies! I really don’t have much to say about these other than they look like quite a bit of work and I love them. VEGAN TREATS 4 EVA.
Vegan Grasshopper Pie from delicious vegan food blog Maple Spice! Plus, a recipe! Made with white chocolate creme de menthe mousse. Ridiculous! I want this so badly right now, let’s eat hella pie all the time! Deal? Deal!
It’s the February East Bay Vegan Bakesale and you want to bake for it! So email and let them know. And if not, you want to go to it! All the details are on that rad flyer above and you can check out the info on Fat Bottom Bakery’s site. Ow!
Oh and perhaps you could make some of these cookies inside of cookies things? I’m pretty sure this is what Cookie Monster jerks it to. And by Cookie Monster, I mean me. And you. ADMIT IT.
This is a vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Cookie Pie. That is all.

Here is something amazing to do tonight. Go to El Rio, have a delicious alcoholic beverage for cheap and then eat some MOTHERFLIPPING FRY BREAD. Perfect Monday night!!
Rocky Yazzie of Rocky’s Frybread will be serving the most magical-looking fry bread that’s dusted with powdered sugar and honey (you can get without honey or bring your own bottle of agave nectar DO IT); so amazing. El Rio is pretty much the greatest place on earth and when matched with FRY BREAD??? Can I get a fuck yeah? Rocky will be in front of El Rio at 3158 Mission St. at Cesar Chavez Street from 9 p.m. on. Open up your mouth and feed it!

No Worries! Oakland’s bringing it with the vegan Filipino cuisine! »
I don’t know what else to say but VEGAN FILIPINO CUISINE. And it’s good and it’s cheap and it’s close to 12th Street BART in Oakland and you want it. First of all, if you’re familiar with Filipino food, you know that it’s not exactly the most vegetarian-friendly, and by “not exactly the most vegetarian-friendly” I mean that the last time I had Filipino food, they put pork in the green beans YOU FEEL ME? I dated a Filipino guy and his penis was a giant pork-filled lumpia YOU DIG?* I went to a Filipino wedding and the officiant was a chicken wing OKAAAAAY??? I don’t know, ignore me. But please continue reading.
Well, no more! No Worries brings the classic Filipino food, veganized. They’ve got Lumpia, Pancit, Adobo, Mungo, Tocho, and more. My favorite thing was the Kare-Kare, which is vegan meat, eggplant, string beans, and cabbage in this delicious savory peanut sauce. Only $8.95 for a giant bowl of it and another buck for rice. A huge tasty meal for under $10—not bad. Not bad at all. The deals get even crazier at lunch, where you get two dishes for only $5.95. That’s some insane EVERYTHING MUST GO shit, right there. Buy it all. Also, the interior is absolutely adorable, with a good amount of seating and photography from local artists. You could totally bring your parents here and they would be all, “Ooooh, classy.” or you, know, not want to leave. I don’t know about you but I can’t say that about lots of the businesses that I patronize.
What’s best, No Worries started as a business proposal in high school and grew to a straight-up full-on restaurant in about 10 years. That’s called following your dreams and that’s fucking awesome. Let’s all take this as a sign to follow OUR dreams, whether that means becoming a space astronaut or simply getting out of bed in the morning. DREAMS DO COME TRUE!
*Kinda like how I dated an Italian dude and his dong was a triangular slice of pepperoni pizza. Mamma Mia! Thas-a spicy meatball! OMG GO TO BED LAURA.
