I feel the same way about people trying to force food opinions on me. I grew up as a vegetarian, but now I eat all sorts of meat, but since I try to only buy organic food I seldom actually eat it. I once had a vegan friend, and every time we went to the supermarket together, he would say “that’s murder, buying [whatever]”. Eventually, I got tired of it and stopped seeing him.

In my opinion, veganism is a religion, whereas vegetarianism is a special diet. And I’m an atheist, in every respect.

Lovely cake, by the way!

I wasn’t a huge fan of Cooking for Mr. Latte but this recipe looked really good. I’ve been meaning to make it for a while now and haven’t gotten around to it. Yours looks so good, hopefully this is the nudge I need!

These loaves are lovely in their simplicity. Pure comfort.

Yum yum yum! It looks like “quatre-quarts” that I ate when I was younger and lived in France (Brittany).

I really liked Cooking for Mr. Latte. I didn’t read the reviews though, I hardly ever do. Most of the books and movies critics love, I hate and vice-versa.
I too am not a fan of people me telling me what to eat. I dated a Vegan for several years. He did it soley for diet purpose(he was a pro bike racer…and now of course he eats everything)and we got along because he didn’t feel the need to tell me how to eat and vice versa. Though I can’t eat lentils anymore because that is all he used to want me to prepare. 🙂
I have a vegan friend who loves to tell me how meat is rotting in my stomach everytime she sees me eat meat. I just tell her thanks for sharing. I keep reminding her that I have actually been to a slaughter house and stil eat meat, her telling me that it’s rotting in my stomach isn’t going to deter me.
Your loaves look very tasty.

What a delicious cake! Sounds like a perfect cake for when you want to “splurge”!

Looks insanely rich. There’s nothing like premium butter to make anything baked taste better.
