cookies and "fast" food

When I was young... haha most of you would say I'm still young... I couldn't eat fast food. I was one of those kids who went to McDonalds only one time in the year and the only thing I could eat there were the french fries and eventually the chicken mc nuggets. I just didn't like much the food there and so I don't miss the fast food. But today I wanted a burger, I don't know why but I just had to eat a burger. So I made a burger to my taste with homemade burgers (from a package haha ;-) ), tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and lots of mustard and ketchup... so good. The best "burger" I've ever had.

And of course I made cookies. My choice were the Wheat Free Chocolate Chip Cookies from Veganomicon and Happy Cookies from this French blog.

cupcakes and pasta

Yesterday I baked a lot, I made the lime/lemon scones again. Everybody likes them, my mother told me to double the recipe when I make it next time, because they're so good.
Then I gave the jelly donut cupcakes from veganomicon a try. But they were rather jelly-stuffed cupcakes, because the home-made jam I used was way too thick and sank to the bottom, as you can see in the picture.
And last but not least I tried the lower fat banana bread (no picture sorry) from veganomicon, too.

I also did a bit of cooking, though I could bake all day long. I made the Spicy Lemon Pasta with Broccoli from and I have to admit that this is now one of my favourite pasta recipes. I almost followed the recipe, the only change I made was that I added 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano and 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme at the end.

Pizzarolls, Dip, Scones, Gratin

Tomorrow starts my last week of school, which means no class tests until the holidays are over, but unfortunately that doesn't mean that I'm not busy.
Anyway, here are the things I ate lately :-) :
Pizzarolls dipped in Curried Carrot Dip from Veganomicon:

And here my first attempt to bake scones. I made the lemon/lime scones from but dit they EAT it? Though I overcooked the glaze so it was rather candy it tasted very good
And last but not least I tried the gratin dauphinois posted in the forum on again with a different kind of potato and it worked out fine, if someone wants the recipe, leave me a comment and I'll type it up here.
