THE Muffin

Hello again :)

I really cannot believe it has been over a month since I last posted! What started as a short break due to vacation and the start of school apparently ended up lasting a bit longer. Never fear, though, I am now back to stay. With a few weeks of junior year under my belt and armed with a whole new inspiration, I am ready to go; I hope you will all will jump on this boat with me!

As a matter of cleaning house, I should probably mention the new ways of my blog. I keep talking about my "new" blog, and I can assure you this is not just a teaser. I have really been working hard on launching a new site that will be more user-friendly (hopefully up and running in a bit more than a month). In it I plan to include more recipes and posts on vegan living/life in general. While I love writing long posts, I definitely think they get to be overwhelming. Therefore, I think I am going to post short things more frequently. (My favorite almond butter eater seems to have it down pat.) 

How does that sound? I really want your input on what you would like to see in the future for Sweet Treats and Vegan Eats. Please, do not hesitate to request (I would love to hear your ideas though either comments or emails at manda5 at mac dot com)! 

I believe that blogging is like the saying "it takes two to tango" (I may or may not be a former dancer). The blogging community is as amazing and supportive as it is because of the strong relationships between writer and reader. I am so thankful for all of you and value each and every thing you contribute (even silent blog readers contribute!) 

On that note, it probably does not surprise you that I have definitely missed blogging oh so much! And now that I am back, I want to show you a bit of what is to come. While I do have lots of photos collected from my trip to NYC, I will probably just save them for a special post. My practice of yoga has really taught me to live in the moment so that is where I am going to start from in the next post. But I guess a little past muffin action first would not hurt...

Best. Muffin. Of. My. Life. (Vegan or otherwise.) I actually cried a tear of sadness when I had to leave New York, and the maker of these glorious muffins, behind. Now that is true foodie love, my friends.

What is the best thing you have ever eaten that you simply could not stop thinking about? 

While I could name many other foods that beat muffins on my list of favorites, this one was like no other. I will always remember the luscious scent it radiated and the wonderful man (don't get worried, it was just my step-dad!) I was luck enough to share the experience with. 

Have a lovely day! 



  1. I'm glad to see you back, Mandiee!! Sounds like you've got some wonderful things planned for us, too - I can't wait to read your posts on vegan living. It's really captured my interest lately. I also love the idea of having short and long posts, but really - do what makes you happy! It's your blog and ultimately up to you. You've gotta have fun writing it in order for your readers to have fun reading it - and I know I always have!!
    It sounds like your trip went great as well as starting back at school. And yes, yes that muffin does look amazing!! I always have difficulties saying "best food I've ever eaten" and what not...because it always seems like the most recent meal I've had is it, but I know that's probably not true! I just have a bad long-term memory, I suppose ;)

  2. Glad you're back! We all need a break sometimes! That muffin looks wonnnderful. I had some homemade hummus + homemade bread on Friday that I can't stop thinking about! I want more! Haha

  3. Yay, you start blogging again just when I am too! I bet its crazy getting back to real life, school wise, but I am sure yoga has really centered you for a wonderful year ahead! I can't wait to hear about nyc (since I am from there!). Of course I am really excited about upcoming changes on your bloggie too!

  4. you're adorable! glad to see you back! good luck finding that healthy balance and managing your time! ( i saw as i'm downing coffee and procrastinating writing a research paper ;)

  5. AMAZING MUFFIN!!! thank you for sharing beautiful :) u know i always appreciate a big topped yummy muffin hehe <3
