I recently bought Vegan Vittles – Second Helpings by Jo Stepaniak. Did I try a new recipe? Nope! I went directly for one of my favorites – Peach Kuchen. The crust reminds me of a flaky shortbread which is topped with peach halves, cinnamon-sugar, and a sweetened soy sour cream mixture (the yellow color comes from the added turmeric). I think I may have blogged about Peach Kuchen last year but it definitely is worth a second post.
And just because I felt like being particularly “cruel”, I called my mom to let her know I made Peach Kuchen. My parents are big fans of this and my mom noted the “cruelness” of my phone call. LOL

It looks like we will have a garden this year. We just found out last night that we were able to snag a community garden plot. Yay!!!! It only cost us $25 to rent a 20′ x 20′ plot for the season. I’ll be posting about my garden plans soon.
While at a library book sale, I happened to find an older edition of Vegetable Gardening in Illinois. It still has a lot of useful information, which I’m sure will help us with our garden plot.
I love Chet Baker’s music. Rob actually spotted this Chet Baker memoir while I was enthralled with the cookbooks. It’s an ex-library book but in perfect condition. It’s a very short book though, only 115 pages. Are any of my readers Chet Baker fans too?
I only paid $2 for both books. What a deal 😀
The weather is improving here. We got about 3″ of snow earlier in the week but now it is bright and sunny. I hear it won’t stay that way though. 🙁 I’m really looking forward to some nice weather now that we have our bikes here. I’m anxious to try out some of the bike trails.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
