Weekend Recipe

I had quite a lovely weekend, I have to tell you. I hosted a little get together at my place on Saturday night — the first party in my new apartment! — and had tons of friends over for drinks and snacks. It was grand.

I made Manhattans and W. made Sazeracs (our respective favorites) and we practiced our cocktail recipes before anyone came over and had quite a few giggles indeed. We may have even indulged in a very silly dog photo shoot, but I’ll never tell.

I made my favorite baked tofu recipe (sesame, ginger, garlic with a homemade peanut sauce for dipping) and I am proud to say that in a room full of omnivores it was the first thing we ran out of.

I also made the best cupcakes I’ve ever made and absolutely did not photograph them. I only got to eat half of one. But goddamn! I am telling you, they were delicious. The s’mores cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Make these immediately, if not sooner.

While I am (as you for sure know by now) very much an introvert, I love, occasionally, to absolutely fill my house to capacity with people and loud, happy conversations and laughter and food and dogs and jokes. Saturday night definitely delivered on all of these elements.

Sunday, on the other hand, we had a very relaxing morning of it — sleeping in, coffee made “the hard way,” a potatoey breakfast, and all of Doctor Who season five. Yes, all of it. Definitely one of my top weekends in recent memory. The perfect mix of socializing and hibernating, big fun and big coziness, bourbon and coffee. What’s your perfect weekend recipe?
