Yeast Cake

For my birthday I requested an Yeast Cake filled with meringue. Yeast Cake is the literal translation of the Hebrew term for sweet breads.

Since it's shaped like roses, we call specifically call this type of sweet bread "rose cake".
It is very good. The only problem is, the instructions I gave Mark weren't very good. I have no real idea how to make something like that. I assumed it would be just like making cinnamon rolls, but instead of cinnamon, put meringue inside. Turned out the dough rose while baking and pushed all the filling out. :) It was still good. I think that next time I will ask my sister how she does it, though.

Vegan Potato Pizza

If you can't see why it's called a potato pizza, it's because the potatoes are inside the crust - that's right - just like potato bread! Yummy crust. Yummy toppings too: roasted garlic, corn kernels, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, and a little bit of rosemary. Vegan cheddar - not so yummy.
We found it at Sunflower Farmers Market for sale - Vegan Rella - it's discontinued - and figured we should try. We didn't like it at all - it doesn't have much flavor and it is best in sticking to every single part of your mouth.
Oh well, it was an interesting experience :)
