Sweet Teeth

The week is easier with sweet snacks.IMG_8373A baby vegan cupcake from Sprinkles

Besides being the type of gal who orders herself a bag of scratch-made vegan cookies for no reason, I am also the type of gal who orders herself a bag of scratch-made vegan cookies for a reason: Pure nostalgia.

When I was in high school, I’d walk to this bakery near by for cookies just like these. I’d order a half a pound of cookies and would eat them all slowly with many internal “mmmm”s. DSC_0231

It’s funny how those cookies are burned in my memory, like a lost love. I remember speaking to the counterperson shyly, remember thinking how the cookies were worth all the money in my Kero-kero-keroppi wallet, remember seeing the scale increase as I asked for a couple more in the box. The start of my love of sweets…
