How YOU doin?

This brunch plate from Sweetpea is hitting on you. It already had me.

Tofu scramble, kale, biscuit, white gravy, pancake, potatoes and seitan.

Sweetpea Bakery & Cafe Sunday vegan brunch buffet. I finished almost all of this plate! $12 per person. Should be happening on a regular basis. My favorite parts were the seitan, kale and gravy. Breakfast greens are da bomb.

Another version of Julie Hasson's Sausages - Smokey Tomato, Garlic & Basil

I made a mistake somewhere and these had trouble firming, but they finally did after some more work. These are swell and I can't say enough how easy they are to make why haven't you made them yet?

Thomas and I shared this Maple Cinnamon soft serve to-go from Blossoming Lotus on Saturday (take note - not the same day as the buffet! I didn't want to eat again till 4:30pm yesterday). It was not too sweet and full of spice~


Yesterday I made Blood Orange & Shallot BBQ sauce, based on the Veganomicon Backyard BBQ sauce recipe.

I subbed shallot for the onion, added the juice of one small blood orange, and swapped some maple syrup for the sugar. It was pureed after simmering. No chunky sauce for this gal.

And this size soft serve is a mere $2!

We actually ordered the $4 one, but got this size by mistake, and the cashier came running outside to us with an additional 2 oz!

Did Sweetpea run out of food this time? We went the first Sunday and got there about 10:30 and the sign was already up that they were out of food. So I was hesitant to go yesterday. The food looks delish, though! I love that you can get almond milk (at no extra cost) in espresso drinks there :)

Yes! Hearing that the Sweetpea Brunch Buffet is most likely happening on a regular basis made my day. I will be there this weekend!
