Hello from the middle of a Chicago winter! I just moved here to take a job with the amazing Hampton Creek Foods (like us on Facebook here). Eva, her boyfriend Omar, and I are all roommates now, which means our apartment is literally 100% of the time filled with delectable vegan food because we all love to cook.
A couple of weeks ago I was sitting on my couch petting my cat after dinner dreaming of desserts. I often do this. That is, think about desserts and without actually making any or eating any. It’s just kind of a thing to do.
Anyway, as I was sitting there, I had this sudden desire to eat a blueberry coffee cake with a big topping of limey-fresh crumb. I’m not sure where this desire came from, seeing as I have never been a big coffee cake girl. (This might be related to the fact that I’m not a coffee person in general). I let the idea simmer in the back of my mind over the next couple of weeks, almost forgetting about it, dealing with other life-events.
