what I think is wicked knickers
I thought the original version of these was good – then I went and dipped them in chocolate. Viper reckons these are ‘the best things I have ever made.’ I simply added 2T cacao powder to the original recipe, melted some vegan friendly dark chocolate, and dipped away. Between Viper, me and Misty these little balls don’t stand a chance. They are definitely deserving of the “wicked knickers” description.
I’ve been running around like a headless chook today, preparing for the arrival of my soon-to-be sisters-in-law. Sister-in-law aka Aunty Netsky is bringing along Misty’s cousin, Mopsy. These two were born on the same day, 2 hours apart – they don’t get to see each other very often either so things could get interesting – hope there are no fights over the new snuggly.
Anyway, this will be the last time I get to hang with these gals before the wedding. I’m not going to be so rash to call this gathering of beautiful birds a “Hen’s Party” or anything, but let’s just say a lot of squawking and tipple-drinking will go on.
Today, I thought I’d share with you a few lovely ladies who I consider to be “wicked knickers” – I’m useless at all those “Blog Award” type things, but I love to be introduced to new blogs (because let’s be honest, sometimes it’s hard to navigate to quality through the sea of bloggy-waters).
Possible one of my longest-time readers? Hannah is just a ray of sunshine, wrapped in a sparkly bow, and offering you a delicious assortment of chocolatey treats. She is a fantastic writer, and her “tasting notes” for describing chocolate is just incredible – how do you taste such things, dear Hannah? She is about to embark on an adventure into the unknown… I’m so looking forward reading all about it.
Em has it DOWN when it comes to balance. A girl after my own heart, she is so passionate (andnowledgeable) about REAL food, but also knows that moderation is key (mojito, Em?) She comes up with fantastic recipes that will appeal to vegetarians, meat eaters and vegans alike – plus she is darn hilarious.
This girl is so incredibly sweet I almost can’t stand it. She is also a wealth of knowledge – I have grown so fond of reading (and learning!) about her experiences with detoxing, fueling herself for work outs and settling in to her vegan-life-loving regime.
I would so like to eat sweet potato skins, cold tofu, apple cores and broccoli stalks with T. She is my weirdo-taste-bud twin. She also has some pretty incredible kitchen creativity going on… plus she is just so cute I want to squeeze her.
I actually had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful lady in person. A brief encounter, but Oh so sweet, and I know we will meet again to drink wine (and kombucha) go to yoga classes and LAUGH together. Lindsay is a pretty incredible lady – she manages her husband who is a professional triathlete, plus runs her own small business on the side.
I think Ami and me may either be twins separated at birth, or we could possibly be the same person. Except that she lives in Canada and has Holden, and I live in Aussie and have Misty. No, we couldn’t be the same person, but woah Nelly are we similar…. I feel so comforted when I visit Parsnips and Pears – like I’m going home or something? Ami is so down to earth and makes the BEST lunches for her toddler Holden, EVER. As in, I would actually steal lunch off a small child, even if he cried – they are that good. And I’m a very mean lady.
B is relatively new to the blogging-world, but she is out of the gate like an angry bull. (weird comparison there but anyway). She is a Mama just like me, but leads a pretty exciting (not to mention BRAVE) nomadic lifestyle…. travelling all over the show with her husband and toddler. Just the thought of taking Misty overseas is enough to make me want to mess my wicked knickers. If you have itchy feet, B is the lady to go to for travel tips!
I cannot do this lady justice with words. Just go to her site and ogle at her creativity and pizazz when it comes to vegan, gluten free cooking. Not to mention she is just an awesome, groovy chick.
If you want to laugh and be enetertained – check out Britt. She is just fabulous. She has recently adopted a “Vegan diet with Benefits” and has such a cool and happy approach to life.
Yogini, runner, raw food recipe-creator extraordinaire. This lady sure is talented and SO full of information. I hope to take one of her yoga classes some day!
Anyway, there are my “wicked knickers” ladies. Funny, I don’t seem to read any blogs by male authors. Suggestions? I also need cocktail/mocktail recommendations for my ‘not-a Hen’s-party’ – please share!
