Its a new year!

Need to work on my caramel sauce but I can't wait to try this cake! #vegan #cake #vegandesserts

Vanilla Coconut Cake with Caramel Sauce 

The New Year is already 3 weeks in and moving fast. I alway’s hope for a quiet January but that never seems to happen. Its been busy but a lot of fun. That seems to be my theme for 2015:  

BUSY BUT FUN!

So far this year I’ve:

~ created a new cake recipe. It was so good! (pictured above)
~ actually created a few new recipes.
~ been invited to not 1 but 2 Food Swaps! Vegan food swaps at that!
~ had a lovely date with my 7 year old daughter in NYC to see Wicked on Broadway. That     was so much fun! If you live in the NYC area follow Kids Free on Broadway. Its such a great deal to see a Broadway show.
~ joined a Win to Lose program at my gym (YMCA). I’m there almost every day now and am already seeing results on the scale. Its very exciting and I feel great. 

Fun things that are coming up this year:

~ Vida Vegan Con in Austin, TX! I cannot wait! I’ll be traveling with my friend Dianne from Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen again. The last VVC, in Portland, OR was so much fun. 
~ 2 family vacations planned. Our usual Ocean Grove trip and a possible trip to the Outer Banks with my parents and sister. 
~ my sister surprised me yesterday with tickets to see the cast of Bob’s Burgers live in NYC this March. I was freaking out. I don’t usually get excited about tv shows but that show is just my favorite thing ever. 
~ in 2 weeks I’ll be seeing Isa Chandra Moskowitz live and on stage at City Winery in NYC with my husband and Dianne and her husband eating a delicious Isa meal while she shares stories with the audience. 

That’s it’s for now, I think. I have a few other exciting things in the works. 

My New Year blogging resolution is as alway’s to start blogging more. I never seem to stick with it though :) Both of my kids are in school 5 days a week now so maybe this is the year I stick with it! Bloggers with young kids…how do you do it?? 

I hope everyone has a fantastic 2015! Let me know if any of you are heading to VVC in Austin at the end of May!

    That cake looks so good! And you have so many exciting things in store–stoked for you! And super jelly of your Isa dinner–you better blog all about it afterwards :)

    Yay! What an exciting year ahead! I’m eager to hear about your experience seeing Isa live. I was tempted to get tickets to the Chicago showing. It’s sold out now. I’m sure it will be an awesome time! And it will be fun to meet up with you in Austin at VVC! I agree that the last VVC in Portland was so much fun. I’ve never been to Austin, and so I’m looking forward to eating my way across the city with plenty of tacos to go around.
