Apple Custard Pie with Oatmeal Crust

 

Happy Superbowl Sunday, everyone!  Hubby and I are getting ready to go watch the game at our friend’s place and it’s our job to bring the dessert.  I subscribe to the Vegetarian Times recipe of the week emails and the most recent one to arrive in my inbox was for this delicious pie.  Ok, I haven’t actually tried it yet but I’m assuming it’s delicious.  It certainly looks good and the apartment smells AMAZING right now!

Once again, I happened to have all of these ingredients on hand so I didn’t have to run to the store ahead of time.  (I’ll definitely be stopping quick when we leave to watch the game later to grab some vanilla ice cream to go with the pie, yum!)  I substituted regular butter for vegan margarine, used soymilk in place of oat milk, and sliced up 5 small apples instead of 3.  Can’t wait to give it a try later!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Brownies

 

In light of the fact that it’s going to be a very long and hectic day at work tomorrow, I decided to whip up a quick batch of these brownies for all of the lovelies that I am so grateful to share an office with.  I used this recipe and it is definitely a keeper!

An extra trip to the grocery store was not required this time around.  I happened to have some version of all of these ingredients already stocked in my kitchen (a rare occurrence) and only had to make a couple of very minor substitutions.  In place of the unsalted butter I used regular salted butter and just omitted the salt that the recipe called for and I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of chunks.  Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and the brownies turned out great.  Quick and simple.
