Baked Cauliflower & Broccoli Falafel

I’ll be honest. I’m not up for writing today. A bit stressed out. But out of all the things, one of the hardest things I’ve gone through is I crave for some food and can’t share how great it is with Mad Scientist because he has different food allergies than I do. Taking a photo of a dish and trying to explain the taste is one thing. It’s a good conversation topic. Experiencing “it” is completely another story. So do I think this is a problem or struggle? No, the world won’t fall apart because of that. I like the challenges, the processes, and the opportunities. I just need a bit of time and creativity so that we can both enjoy.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanuts and I have a lot of good memories. My best friend growing up was a huge fan of Snoopy and I got sucked into the world of Snoopy. She and I even went to Snoopy themed Halloween parties. My best memory of all time actually comes from “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” That’s the movie that was playing when Mad Scientist and I officially got engaged. It was at the Corn Maze in Upstate NY. They were running a series of outdoor movie nights. Kids of all ages surrounded fire pits with extra long marshmallow roasting sticks and a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in hands while they keenly watched the movie after a long day at the corn maze & good pumpkin picking. It was fairly chilly evening in mid-October, yet utterly romantic.
