Happy Bunnies Effing Day!

What can I say, I'm not at all religious.

But, our family still is (sort of), AND today is our daddy's birthday (happy birthday Daddums!), AND I am lucky enough to have a half day at work, so Kell and I are headed up north to visit the famfam. There will be much bike-riding and food and hopefully some chocolate. 'Twill be excellent.

I leave you today with testers from the lovely and talented Terry Hope Romero's upcoming Vegan Latina cookbook! The recipes span the South American continent and so far they are fun to cook AND fun to eat!

There are also these AMAZING Eggplant Torta Sandwiches (complete with Pickled Red Onions, OMG TASTY!) that I didn't get a picture of...because they went in our tummies so fast! Favorite recipe thus far.

Why yes, I DO use the same plates for EVERYTHING I cook. Back off, it's vintage Corningware from the 1970s! (I <3 50s & 70s kitchen stuff...and knitting patterns/yarn.)

Are you starving now? Because I am. Where's my banana?!!

It all looks so delicious! I have an excessive love for tostadas. I can't wait for that book, yay Terry!

Thanks for the awesome pictures ladies! :) Hope you enjoy the visit with the fam!

Wow, you've been a busy tester! Happy Easter and Happy Birthday to your dad.

That all looks so good. I'm super hungry right now, which doesn't help. And I like your plate! I'd use it all the time too if I had it.

Hope you had a good time last weekend!
