|Truly, truly outrageous moment with "Jem and the Holograms" in sweet dessert form.|
Yes! I'm jamming to a fan favorite "Jem and the Holograms" tune on this wonderful New Year's Day and purposely forgetting that live-action garbage fodder I had no stomach to watch! Thanks to Cagriaboyu on Youtube for having a playlist of every Jem/Misfits song in aired order. It's the perfect way to kick off another consecutive veganism filled year-- the fourth to be exact. The fourth is with me (ummm I watched Star Wars recently so....).
I must extend my gratitude to a sincerely kind vegan pal who tagged me in a story about Sweet Inc's "Jem and the Holograms" cookie cutters. I bought them months ago, but today was the first time I've tested turning the super fashionable 1980's empowering girl group into edible treats.
The recipe makes five swoon-worthy, irresistibly delicious warm chocolate chips and crunchy pecans colossal cookies. Like a pop music dream come true. One can make cookies smaller or substitute different nuts (walnuts or almonds). Just know that chocolate chips and pecans have a major thing together-- like Jem/Rio (or is that Jerrica/Rio) and Anthony/Shana.

A huge, tremendous thanks to all visitors who read, laugh, share, and support via here and on the social media sphere. It means the whole world.
I look forward to continue inventing recipes, posting eating out vegan adventures, championing art/black culture, and everything else that happens along the way. Look for a new header to finally happen-- with a new cute little duckling to be involved. I love ducks. And kittens. Hints.

|Hi Shana! Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes.|
|They're a little flour-ly still, but quite edible. Have to make them look prettier next time.|
|The girls are all ready.|
