New Jersey, Eggs Benny, A Chocolate Revelation

Vegan MoFo Week 3 begins!

On Saturday we spent the day visiting friends over in New Jersey. I love my kiddos but it was nice to hang out with other grown-ups (for a change!) and we all had a lot of fun.  Since the weather was unusually warm, we took the kids to the park for awhile.  Olivia loves to be out in the fresh air.

I baked Mama Pea's peanut butter cookie dough balls to take with us.

If you like super rich, dense peanut butter cookies, you must give these a try! I used mini chocolate chips because that's what they had at the health food store that was vegan...I had a total airhead moment when I realized that most chocolate chips are not vegan! Yes, it only just occurred to me that they call it "milk" chocolate for a reason. Dunno why I didn't make that connection before.  

Sunday morning I made the Eggs Benny from Vegan Brunch, with homemade English muffins. The Hollandaise sauce is awesome.  I was dipping my home fries in it, I didn't want to waste a drop!

Have a good week, guys!


  1. Yum! I've been wanting to try the eggs benny from Vegan Brunch. Yours looks delicious!

  2. Those cookies! That brunch! Everything looks yummy!

  3. Wasn't Saturday's weather CRAZY! I wish it was warm like that all year.

    Great looking breakfast! Perfect for a lazy Sunday morning (although, with two kids, can mornings even be lazy anymore??!!)
