Since I was out of cupcakes...

I made cookies! Kris has created a fantabulous recipe for these chocolate peanut butter shell cookies that the kids and I made today. They are actually pretty easy for the kids to form and fun to squish little hands into the chocolate dough! And super excellent to eat, by the way. Don't tell my butt, but I have already eaten three of them. Before dinner. Within 10 minutes of them coming out of the oven. Shame on me.
(My older daughter desperately wants all the bloggers out there to know that she took the picture above. I think it looks better than mine.)

I did finally eat dinner, which was a bowl of Spicy Asian Noodles with Teriyaki Tofu. Oh, so yum! I stir fried some teriyaki tofu, zucchini, broccoli, carrots and edamame and added them to a bowl of angel hair pasta drenched in a spicy sauce, topped with a sprinkling of sesame seeds. The sauce is one I adapted/veganized from an Epicurious recipe, which is basically some toasted sesame oil, tamari, balsamic vinegar, agave nectar and a healthy dash of cayenne pepper all mixed up to taste. It brings a slight sweat to my forehead, which is perfect since I am about to go jump into our pool to cool off. Sweet!

Mmm, those cookies look fabulous. Your daughter's a budding food photographer, eh?
chocolate-peanut butter cookies and an asian stir-fry dish... don't think it can get much better than that :0)
Your daughter took a great pic. I understand why she'd want credit for it.

I'm really craving a stirfry and yours looks so delicious. I'm all out of tofu and I've used up all of my grocery budget money already so tofu will not be in the picture - at least not for the next 5 days. Maybe I'll give it a go with veggies only. Great idea to serve it over angel hair.
Those cookies look amazing. I'll bet they're so much better than reese's peanut butter they're vegan!
Mmmm, those cookies look perfect! Your daughter took a great picture. And the stirfry looks wonderful - I love spicy!
Great picture! I have Kris's book, and I can't wait to make every single recipe from it!
those cookies look AMAZING!
COOKIES! Wow. Those are RAD!! The dinner is also tasty lookin', but it is hard to get beyond those sweets...
