Just call me Norine, Professional Scone Connoisseur.

Little known fact: Norine loves (vegan) scones. I don't discriminate either-fluffy scones, hard scones, crumbly and cakey scones. I eats them all.

Like, in a room full of different kinds of scones, each one of them would go into my tummy at some point. Unless one of them clearly was inedible (plastic) or moldy (might still TRY to eat it depending on what it looked like).

IN ANY CASE, I love muh scones and the Twin Cities has a vast variety of vegan ones you can find!

Caffetto Cafe is a favesy so I gots to give them some love. They always carry some sort of vegan scone and they err on the crumbly and less sweet side. Thus, I dub ye my favorite grad school studying spot, Caffetto. Keep up the good work.

Gingko Cofffeehouse in St Paul has the most tender but slightly flaky scone you will ever sink your teeth into. Also, these suckers are modestly-sized, so they don't fill you up too much! *kisses fingers* MOLTO BELLO.  Or whatever. This one had peach in it I think.

The Wedge in uptown carries vegan scones on the daily and their usually round-shaped. So there's that. I mean, that's fun right? The flavors can be super interesting too!

And last but not least, Isle Bun and Coffee in Uptown. These scone are magnificent, with tender chunks of date and delicious fruit pieces. I love me a scone from Isle Bun.

Honorable mentions because they don't have them all of the time: Mayday Café in South Mpls, Hard Times Café in Cedar-Riverside.
Go on and get your scone on, peeps!

I made this for a friend's b day. Vegan dirt and worms cake! You best bet I made them damn worms by muhself, because I totally did. Cuz I'M PRO.

And then off course, I topped that off with more vegan donuts from Glam Doll. Fuckin right.

Follow the links, dear readers. Follow the links to deliciousness.

Even more stuff I've eaten, etc.

Ah yes, putting things in my mouthhole-one of my favorite past times (present times? I still do this and enjoy it hmmm).
Regardless! I have some more things to show you. So instead of dangling a bunch of proverbial carrots in front of all your faces, let's do it to it, shall we? NO FUCKING AROUND HERE. Also, hope you have fun looking at some crappy, half-eaten, vegan food photos. I know I know, I suck. Sue me.

When does The Bulldog NE's food start getting crappy? The answer to that question is *punches you in the face* 
No but srsly, all kidding aside, this shit is music to my tongue (as opposed to ears, derr). This here is the Chicago not-dog and it is fully vegan in all its amazingosity. Google "Chicago dog" and you'll know what's on it, i.e. I'm too lazy to explain it. Just watch out for those peppers-they'll bite you in the ass (tongue) if you're not prepared.

Since lately, all I can think about is donuts in lieu of Glam Doll unleashing their vegan variety, I have posted a couple of the vegan glazed variety, me eating said variety, and of how a donut looks after I've eaten most of it because I'm fucking hilarious. God I love myself.


Anyways, you should go now if you haven't.

I wanted to switch it up a bit and show Sociable Cider Works some love. I am not a beer person, but this place makes hard apple cider like no other. Here pictured is a flight of different ciders. They err on the dry side AKA no sweet hard ciders here. I loved it, you all should give them some business!

Well, I'm drunk after all that cider, how about you? Kidding, kidding. Yeah that's right. I got jokes.

GET THERE NOW OR I'LL...I'LL...*explodes*

Glam Doll Donuts is now making vegan versions of their regular flavors and having them available on the daily. Y'all need to get there. I mean, I used to make vegan donuts for Donut Cooperative back in the day and they were great. But let me tell you-this is legit shit, no fucking around.

Get some now!!!!!! And for those of you with no real access to these at this current moment, check out their glorious instagram for some epic vegan food porn.

I don't have a picture of what I ate, because it is in my tummy...but get the vegan peanut butter sriracha donut and then give me a high five afterward.

Guys. GUYS.

Have I got some shit for you!

On this episode of "What Used to Be in My Belly, but is Now...Somewhere Else," I'm including some favesies of mine.

Ya'll ready for this? *kicks the jams*

TCBY has fucking chocolate almond vegan soft serve and it was delish! If you had the pleasure of trying this stuff while it was out, let me know. It was thick, full of chocolatey goodness (AKA flavor). Perfection in a tiny cup. There's like, two TCBY's here and the one I went to is in Rosedale Mall. Holler at ya girl, RDM. Fun fact: I used to work there.
 This burger's amazingosity (that word is TM'd by me btw, no stealing ya jerks) is brought to you by People's Organic, which is a nice little eatery that makes their own vegan mayo and has everything labeled on the menu (V for vegan and such). This place is over yonder in a 'burb called Edina. It's a nice place and the food is good. This burger was delectable, but you could tell the vegan mayo was homemade. It was kind of gritty and didn't really taste like mayo in my opinion. Otherwise, a delicious burger that held together well!

And now, for the doozy. This vegan burger knocks it out of the park for me. It is everything I would want in a burger. That's a lie. It needed a little more sauce in my opinion, but the burger itself is fantastic and looks to be made of beets? Doesn't taste like it though. In fact, get the chipotle burger. Or the Italian burger. They will rock your socks off with flavor!
These are from The Bulldog NE, and it is  one bombass eatery. I can sit there, get my Angry Orchard on tap, my vegan burger and be happy as a very alive little clam watching my favorite sport (football) (not really-soccer is better, but I like watching football too). Just ask for the veg menu-there are SO MANY OPTIONS IT IS INSANE *head explodes*. So go there now!
I love having this blog. My brain is so weird.

I am a very strong advocate of getting down, but last night this Rachel Maddow ('ween 2013 costume) got DOWN. Yeah that's right, I party. Hard too, you'd better believe it.


Vegan food! Yes! That's what I came here to talk about. So.

The other week, I took my good friend Ryan out to celebrate her crushing breast cancer (! I know!), and I took her to Kitty Corner Cafe, a nice little vegan-friendly breffest or lunch place for those that enjoy eating tasty shit.

I got the two items on the menu that were vegan. BEHOLD!!!:

So that top guy right there? Yeah, that's a fucking vegan panini. It was crunchy, cheesy and I couldn't get enough. The waffle at the bottom was pretty good too, though I'm not big on sweets so much anymore. The texture of the waffle was fluffy and perfect and it was filled with strawberries, bananas and chocolate drizzle. Fucking...yum.

This place is nestled in Stadium Village, over by the U of M East Campus. Go get some...or my hungover butt will come after you. I WILL, DON'T YOU MAKE ME DO IT.
