So I won't go into the details, but yesterday I found myself searching for Oreo recipes and ended up finding several for Oreo Cheesecake?!
I had never heard of this. Since I had rented "The Waitress" as well (romantic/comedy movie that I didn't like at first but grew on me - she invents pies) I figured it was only fitting I try a vegan version.
I made Oreos from the Chocolate-Covered Katie site and combined them with her vegan cheesecake recipe.
Since my homemade oreos were not as crunchy or adhered as store bought it was more of a layering and careful folding process.
It is actually pretty darn good. And rich. And I have eaten a bit too much of it already...clearly I only follow some aspects of Lent - fasting, in the food sense of the word, not being one of them.
Fun upcoming events (local):
Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat - I have said I am going to this more than once and have yet to make it. Probably because it is in Tacoma.
Wayward Cafe vegan Girl Scout fundraiser (I just made that event name up) - Basically a Seattle girl is a Girl Scout and a vegan and since our distributor of Girl Scout cookies aren't even accidentally vegan (like say store bought Oreos) she does a bake sale at the Wayward Cafe to raise her contribution. This will be happening 2pm on February 16th and March 2. I saw the cakes from last year and experienced a sugar rush just looking at the photos.
