Vegan Delights

"MMMMmmmm..... these are the best chocolate cupcakes I've ever tasted!"
said the carnivore to the jin as he is madly consuming one of these:jin- "HA! They're Vegan!"
carnivore- "Whaaaaaat??? NO! You're teasing me!"
jin- "If I said you couldn't have a second one, that would be me teasing you!" *wink*
carnivore- "You're serious!??!"
jin- "Noooo....... of course you can have another one!" *grin*
carnivore- "No! Well, I mean yes... I want another, please! But, they're really Vegan? I thought Vegan food is supposed to taste like crap?"
jin- "Certainly not my Vegan food! The cupcake you just ingested was 100% Vegan and mostly Organic. Amazing aren't I?" *huge grin*


After I politely turn down his marriage proposal I let him taste these:
Chocolate Shortbread Heart Cut-Outs Dusted with Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar. Made with Vegan Non-GMO Earth Balance for a healthy delicious snack! No eggs, no dairy, no guilty conscience! Yay!

Lemony Filled Shortbread Sandwiches, also made with Earth Balance. These babies are addictive!

Baklava. Nearly Vegan... I do use honey in it, but the ONLY honey I use in my shoppe is locally harvested by a wonderful caring man who treats his bees like they are his children. Kinda like how yours truly treats her Vegetarian Daughter/Fur Baby/Companion Animal:
The jin & The brioche

P.S. Do click on the photos. They will cover your screen and make you drool all over your keyboard. ;-)

You know the only reason I got firsts is because the insomnia has well and truly got hold of me right?!

Anyway,drooling at 5.56am really isn't attractive you know?!

Love the lemon shortbread - yummy!

Although the fact that I'm fasting doesn't help either. *note to self - DON'T VISIT JIN WHEN THERE'S STILL 8 1/2 HOURSE TILL BREAK OF FAST!!!*

jin said...

Vegan food only taste crappy if the Vegan in question doesn't know how to cook or is a self rightous jerk.

But then that is the case with any food.

Everytthing look great!

Ruela said...

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH! my God

I'm to dribble... ops!
I have that to clean the keyboard.
Here in the convent do not have of these cakes...
I go to have a long conversation with the nuns.
Hey brioche, lucky guy!
;)))

/t. said...

ruela is off to have a long conversation with the nuns, no doubt to seek forgiveness for desires now coursing through his taste buds!

ruela -- wait for me...

/t.

jin said...

meherenow:

...annnnd by the time I type this you have a full belly I bet!
Fast over! lol
:-)

jin said...

/t.:

Ohhh......you should taste the baklava, it's one of my faves!!!
Mine has Indian influences... a secret spice!
;-)

I took those photos myself and I was pretty pleased with the results! It was the first time I ever used a tripod. I set up the table in my garden and was very very very lucky to avoid any bees/wasps!!!

jin said...

TAK:

GOOD philosophy!
I agree with everything you say!
Now can I touch your light saber?
:-P

jin said...

ruela:

Haahahahaaa!!! :-)))
Sorry about your keyboard!

Maybe I could pretend to be a nun and sneak some of the sweets in for you....???

Uh.... maybe not. I don't think I could get away with pretending to be a nun. I'm a little too bad to fake being so good.
;-))))))

Brioche says, "Hi Ruela! My Mum says you are really cool!"
:-))))

jin said...

/t.:

Heeheheheee!!!!
I wonder what those nuns would have him do for all those sinful thoughts?!!?

P.S. I'm working on a surprise post. It may take me a few days to complete though... it will include a tribute to you and Ruela and a few others.
;-)

Dino aka Katy said...

oh yummy that reminds me the AP birthday party is coming up (3 weeks) can we do the same cake as last year? I need it by Friday the 5th (the party is on Sunday) - oh but I got one boy now

jin said...

Sure can Katy!! :-)
I could ship it on Tues. (post office, would be there on Fri) or Wed. (UPS 2 day air, few more $$) of that week.

I believe I am remembering alternating layers of red velvet and devilsfood cake with cream cheese filling and chocolate glaze?

Ruela said...

Hmmmmmmmm!
A tribute?
What it will be?
Already I have the head in peak as of the artist of /t of in such a way thinking.;))))

jin said...

ruela:

Ahhh....it will be a great surprise! ;-)))
I have started creating it, but work has been very very busy so you have to wait a few more days before I can finish it!

Dino aka Katy said...

yep that was it. i probably should do UPS.

jin said...

Ok... will send it out the 3rd via UPS... to your office address or home?
I could put:
Happy Birthday Au Pairs
on it?

jin said...

p.s.
This would probably go faster if I'd just sign into my IM wouldn't it?!!? LOL...
arghhhh...
blog funk = IM funk
and they both got me!
DRAT! :-P

JLee said...

I'll take one of each, please :))

jin said...

*jin hands one of each to jlee thru the monitor.*
Enjoy!!
;-)

Beth said...

You ARE amazing! I may ask for your cooking hand in marriage, too.

Kingcover said...

Hey those chocolate hearts remind me of a three leaf clover! And I'll bet they are significantly more edible than clover too. Not that I have tried to actually eat clover before because that would just be silly and stealing food from any wandering horses. *hides secret picture of me eating clover under couch*. Nooooooooo, I didn't just say that did I. Harumphhhhh, now I have to search for a new hiding place *sniff*

jin said...

beth:

Well... ok, but only if you do dishes!!!

:-D

jin said...

king:

You'd better not be eating clover...
It increases the sex-drive!!!
*gasp*
:-O

jin said...

Hey everyone...
INSANELY busy the last few days...
will catch up with your blogs ASAP!

Ohhhh.....I have been taking LOTS of piccies.
;-)

Miss You!
XOXO

Nice pair...of cupcakes. Vegan, eh - so there's no meat in them??

Gyrobo said...

I rarely expect to find meat -- such as premium corned beef or pastrami -- in my baked goods. But it's always a welcome surprise. In fact, sometimes I'll slip my bakist a fifty to get a pound of ham soldered right into a marblecake.

jin said...

phos:

Haahahahaaaa....
nope...how about that?!
:-O

jin said...

Hi gyro!!!!:

If you slip me a fifty
I'll get you a nifty
and very thrifty
beef pie!

*jin knows he won't notice it's really soy...*
;-)

angel said...

divine. delicious. exquisite... oh how i wish i could frequent jin heaven!!!

jin said...

Ohhh... I wish you could too!!!!

Know any geniuses? You could ask him to create a teleportation device!!!
;-)

Middle Child said...

Oh my God... have to admit to a small but delicate and very discreet drool of dribble myself

jin said...

Heehee! Thats ok Therese! I won't tell!
:-)

Katie Schwartz said...

Jin;

Must have lemon shortbread cookies. They look divine. What have you got for me in the savory department that's vegan and low fat? Talk to me, girl. I need some pre-made foods that I can fly in the oven.

Spill, lovergirl.
