Two things.

One: I wrote and released a new zine! It's called Vegetable Vegetable Mineral, and it's about the food industry. Don't worry, no gore. Just facts, and things to ponder. It is of course written from an undoubtedly vegan perspective, but I've attempted to make it a zine for anyone and everyone who cares about the food that they eat and the things that are being done to it behind closed doors, unbenounced to innocent consumers. You can take a better look at it here.

Two: I made some awesome cookies! Or, cookie brittle that is. And it's all thanks to Molly of the Vegan Etsy team's Emma's K9 Kitchen. She posted this interesting recipe, and I just had to try it out. You should too! (Oh, and that awesome picture of them? Totally Molly's picture.)

This is a recipe that my mom gave me which I veganized. It's great with tea or coffee!

1 cup margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the margarine, vanilla and salt together. Beat in the sugar. Add the flour, chocolate chips and 3/4 cup nuts. Mix together well then press into a 15x10 jelly roll pan.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and press the remaining 1/4 cup of nuts into the top.
Cool completely, then break it into pieces.

Yes, it's supposed to be way thin. Yes, it's supposed to come out super crunchy. Yes, it's completely awesome! Thanks Molly!

Yay for cookies, yay for zines, and yay for Saturdays. Woot.
