BIRTHDAY BOTANCIAL GARDEN OOTD

To begin my birthday celebration, I joined my dad for breakfast at Ted's Bulletin at the Mosaic District. I chose the french toast with sides of hash brown and eggs, which was amazing! It was my first time eating here and can't wait to go back to try more of their food! They play classic television shows like I Love Lucy and old-fashioned songs which gives the place a timeless feel. After breakfast we headed to D.C to visit the US Botanical Garden!

SATURDAYS AT THE FARMERS MARKET

I headed to the farmers market yesterday to pick up some flowers, fruit and walk around and see the fresh produce being sold. It was a beautiful morning and everyone there was so nice and helpful, I will definitely go back next Saturday!

Vegan Brownies





Good morning! My sister and I tried out this vegan brownie recipe as we are both going vegan for a while. Its healthier than the regular brownie and just as easy to make. You can add any type of nuts, coconut shreds or pair with your favorite fruit, in this recipe we used walnuts. 
Recipe:
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup cane sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened 100% cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
handful of walnuts
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 cup water
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Pour in water, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix until well blended. Spread evenly in a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is no longer shiny. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.








                                                                            Hope you try it out!
