Wordless Wednesday: Cake and Coffee

table set

I've probably mentioned that our average sized house is heated entirely by one, kind of small, gas fireplace. Which means it gets a bit cold in here over the winter months. We get used to it, wear sweaters and slippers, know where the warmest spots in the house are, etc. However, we don't often have guests over. When we do they remark on how chilly their feet are.

Now that it's warming up, we're starting to feel more able to have people over. So on Sunday we invited the Mother of Science, Aunt of Science and our friend Jamie over for coffee and cake. And tea for me, the non-coffee drinker. And cookies. And oranges. It was very nice. I made a version of this cake with raspberries and blackberries, and sprinkled the top with powdered sugar. The cookies were these ones from Veganomicon, but with some vegan white chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips. Delicious.

Where do you find white chocolate chips that are vegan? I've never seen such a thing.

I got them at the Loblaws at Woodroffe and Baseline, in the Kosher section. It's the only place I've ever seen them.
