Cook With Nikki – Signing Off

Hi Everyone!

Thank you all so much for reading Cook With Nikki. I’ve had so much fun writing in this blog over the years, and have gone through so many changes since starting it up.

One of the biggest changes I’d say that I’ve been through, is having gone vegan. I’ll spare any readers a long entry on why I chose to go vegan, or why I remain on a diet where I no longer consume animal products… But what I will say is that it was one of the best decisions that I could have ever made for my body.

I’m still writing, and posting recipes – head on over to www.cookwithnikkiveg.blogspot.com to check some of them out!

I will still keep this blog up for now, but over time I plan on taking some of my older recipes and re-vamping them into a vegan (raw or cooked) version of an old goodie.

This is a difficult decision, as when I look back I almost feel like if I erase this blog, I’m erasing a big part of my life. It’s a long process of letting go, but it’s something that has to be done. As much as I love sharing recipes, what I don’t love is knowing that people may come across this blog and see recipes that include animal products and assume that it’s something that “Cook With Nikki” (sorry to refer to myself in 3rd person) finds acceptable.

I’ve come to realize that there is not one single good reason to use animal products in the foods which we consume. Again, I won’t go into my beliefs here – but just wanted to let any of you who may still be reading this know that I’m not just abandoning my blog – rather, I’m moving on.

Have a great day everyone, and I hope to see you all at my new blogging home – www.cookwithnikkiveg.blogspot.com

Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve updated because I’ve been putting a lot of focus on my class project blog, so here’s a little something sweet to make up for it! Check out Accack of the Vegan’s Blog for an AMAZING peanut butter mousse recipe!

I’m not going to re-post the recipe, so you’ll have to give her blog a look-see to find it. 😉 My alterations to the recipe were that I used coconut sugar in place of regular sugar, silken tofu in place of hard tofu + soy milk, and I used agave nectar in place of molasses.

Here’s a picture of my serving of this delightful mousse! I highly suggest you give it a try…

YUM! Peanut butter mousse!

YUM! Peanut butter mousse!

Recipes Are Posted!

Hi everyone! Just want you all to know that I haven’t forgotten about this blog! I’ve been putting time into school, and my side-project for one of my classes: Vegan Fitness With Nikki

Here’s some of the recipes that I’ve posted there recently!

That’s just a taste of some of the recipes I’ve posted over there (hah, pun intended), so go check them out! 🙂

Have a great day everyone! 🙂

A Sister-Blog to Cook With Nikki

Check out the new blog I’ve started for a project in my Interactive Marketing class!

We were asked to create a blog about something we’re passionate about on the Blogger website, and since I’ve already got this blog as my baby, I decided to do something somewhat related, but with a twist! It’s still new, and still in the works… But I really like the direction it’s going in! 🙂

It puts a primary focus on:

  • Vegan/vegetarian foods
  • Fitness related entries
  • Reviews on random products focused on fitness and vegetarian/vegan food
  • My own personal progress with P90x
  • And there will also be some recipes thrown in because it’s impossible for me to have a blog without that!

Happy New Year!

Dear People Reading This,

I can’t believe it’s 2012 already!

Without going into detail, I’ve gotta say that 2011 was a year filled with good and bad. There were definitely memories made, tears shed, and laughs had. It was a year where I learned a lot about life, and about myself. As I’m sure many people did!
Here’s to hoping that 2012 is filled with good things for everyone! *raises glass*

Now that I’m settling into my new place, I’ll be posting entries a little more often! I don’t make resolutions for the new year, but if I DID make one, it would be to post more in this blog. Now that I’m back in Toronto, I’ll be wandering around the GTA a little more, posting more reviews, and letting all of you out there know about some hot little foodie gems hiding around this wonderful city. This new year feels like a fresh, new start. So in honour of that, I will also be making a few changes to the layout and feel of this blog! Check back soon to see! 🙂

For now, that’s all. I have a lot of spring cleaning to do… Wait, no. That doesn’t sound right… Winter cleaning? Hmm… I don’t know. Just cleaning. 😉 Then I’m going to head out to a few of my favourite spots in the downtown core! So until my next post, enjoy your day! 🙂

Love, Nikki
