Mom's Day is coming up fast and it's time to show your thanks for her dealing with you for all those years, especially when you were a teenager. If you're still a teenager, no worries- giving your Mom a huge fat thanks will probably get you more cool points that you can redeem later. Is Mom into vegan baking, traditional baking or just benefiting from the aftermath of whoever bakes? No problem. Read on for what I recommend for Mom this Mother's Day.
Chocolate from Cocoa VOk, let's just cut right to the chase shall we? We already know that Moms are crazy about chocolate. My Mom's chocolate obsession planted the seed in me that eventually made me a vegan baking freak, which eventually led me to start this site. Cocoa V, the all-vegan chocolatier in New York City has a great 12 box set for $29 that's sure to please.
The Joy of Vegan BakingArguably the best vegan baking book written thus far, The Joy of Vegan Baking, by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau provides good explanations of baking procedures and methods and it's chock full of amazing baking recipes like strawberry pie with chocolate chunks, cinnamon coffee cake and blueberry cobbler.
Vollrath Cookie SheetsDoes Mom bake cookies often? If so consider getting her a couple Vollrath Cookie Sheets. They're fabricated from a thick plate of aluminum that has superior, even heat transfer. Since they're thick, they don't warp when they heat which is wonderful. I just picked up a pair of these myself and I'm surprised how much a difference these cookie sheets make and how well constructed they are. They are the last cookie sheets you'll ever buy.
KitchenAid Food ProcessorThis bad boy is the workhorse of the modern kitchen, vegan or otherwise. I've had mine going on ten years now with almost daily use. I don't say this about very many kitchen tools but this food processor changed my life. It's available in tons of cool colors too so even if it were to sit and gather dust at least it will look cool doing it!
Brownies From Gone Pie Vegan BakeryThese awesome walnut brownies come in a 8 x 6 inch pan and are guaranteed "to make your eyes light up and tummy say howdy." They can also be shipped nationally.
No matter what you get for Mom this Mother's Day, be sure to remind her you love her, cherish your time together and let the good times roll.
