This blog used to stand for something. It used to stand for important things, like drawing attention to humanitarian disasters, civil rights issues and promoting interfaith tolerance. But no longer. We have devolved here at V2B. Because, all I want to talk about lately...


Nom nom nom nom nom.

Oh sure, I could blog about importantish things that have caught my eye whilst searching online for yummy holiday recipies. Things like this NY Times column about Dr. Hawa Abdi - a heroic, female Muslim who is standing up to the militia in Somalia and empowering women in her country (found while I was oogling the tasty treats seen here). Or I could write about the latest in the ongoing WikiLeaks saga (which is so going to become a blockbuster movie in our lifetime).

Or we could just talk about cookies.

Yummmmmmmmmm. Cookies.

I really want to try to be more serious. But COOKIES, people. It's really all about priorities right now. Seriousness can wait...until after cookie season.

So please forgive my ignorance of all things worldly for just a little while, friends. I really can't help myself, and I promise to return to my senses sometime after this holiday cooking craving is over. I can't guarantee exactly when that will be....but in the meantime, let's focus on this:

Pan-Seared Oatmeal with Warm Fruit Compote and Cider Syrup from the NY Times Well Blog (scroll down for recipe). Photo taken over Thanksgiving...I'm  totally going to make this again when the family visits next week. Drooooooool.

Now what was that I was saying about paying attention to serious issues? I've forgotten because I want to lick my computer screen. 

I think I need professional help.
If you'd like to help me get over this current food obsession, please send me your yummiest holiday recipes. I've never entertained during the holidays, and I really could use some tried-and-true recipes to get through it in one piece. Appetizers, desserts, treats, anything that you love is something that I'm going to love to try. Bonus points for being slightly easy and slightly healthy...but it's not a requirement (shhhh...don't tell Yousuf aka Broccoli Boy! I'll just tell him that I stuck some green stuff in his melty brie topping. Mmmmmm...melty brie...anyone have a good recipe for that?). We are vegetarian though - so no meat-filled cookie cream puffs. Sorry for being such a downer.

Are you ready for some great food posts? I know I am! Comment below or on my Facebook page or on Twitter - and don't forget to share those recipes! My current food craze thanks you.
