Crepes for a Party!

Well.. they were really crepes for a potluck, but my friend wouldn't let me call it that. She said old people have potlucks. It wasn't a vegan potluck, so there was spinach dip in a bread bowl that I couldn't have, but it looked so cool. I liked the bread bowl idea. There was spaghetti, hummus, and really good potatoes. Christine took a salad..

And I took a build-your-own crepe station!

These were the first crepes I ever made and they turned out good. I threw the first one away though, hehe. Here's my crepe! I put everything on it.

It was great! Oh yeah, and then I made scones for work! I used the basic scone recipe from VWaV, and added fresh strawberries and blueberries. Yay :-)

One more thing! I just realized this: the same date that I'm having my apartment-warming party (which I have yet to use the kitchen.. since I'm living in Philly with Christine to work) is my one year veganniversary! July 7th - double party!

EDIT: I just got done with these! They're for work tomorrow. Pistachio Rosewater cupcakes from VCTOW. I can't take credit for the frosting job though. I'm just a mere music major, Christine's an art major.. so I enlisted her to do the swirls. Aren't they beautiful?

That's fantastic. What a great "make your own" for a non-potluck!

Crepes seems so difficult at first, but once you start you realize they aren't so bad!

Your cupcakes are beautiful! And way to go one the crepes... for your first time, they're pretty darn awesome-looking. The firsts crepe almost always gets sacrificed, so it's okay! Hee hee.

mmmmmmm, baked goods. and gorgeous baked goods at that!

i've yet to quell my fears and make crepes. love your make-your-own idea. maybe the next time we have breakfast guests i'll finally try my hand. yum!

scones are my favorite, 've yet to make those either. like the cupcakes, i'm so scared to master the art of vegan baking for fear i'll never stop ;)

happy veganniversary/apartment warming!!!!
