Let’s get our sweets on, shall we?

These are all so good. I really like the Peanut Butter Earths!


2 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:37 am

thank you, Curt! those are some of our favorites too – they’re really fun to make!


3 Lindsay @ Lindsay's List October 7, 2011 at 6:25 am

Your photography is STUNNING, Kristina!! Any simple tips for this newbie?


4 Miriam @ Sometimes I Veg October 7, 2011 at 6:55 am

I have to agree, you should post resources you used to learn.


5 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:30 am

I am writing about photography now, hope to finish soon. I have no resources – I honestly took my camera off auto and played with the settings until I figured out what worked. I will share what I know, though! 😀


6 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:36 am

thank you, Lindsay! 😀 I’m working on a post about photography. the most basic thing I start with is just telling people to play with their camera. set up a subject and take many photos, playing with the settings and lighting / angles. any specific questions you have? I’d love to help!


7 Abby October 7, 2011 at 6:26 am

When you put the finishing touches on the Spabettie delivery service, let me know so I can be first on the list, okay? Okay.


8 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:32 am

my friend, you will be the first to know! 😀


9 Heather (Where's the Beach) October 7, 2011 at 6:26 am

Love it – now can you please send a sampling of each one to me 😉


10 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:32 am

ha – yep! 😀


11 Stephanie@MyThornsHaveRoses October 7, 2011 at 6:32 am

Ohmy. I am so hungry after reading this post. :)


12 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:32 am

I know, I was hungry after compiling it! 😀


13 Miriam @ Sometimes I Veg October 7, 2011 at 6:54 am

This post is just torture! My favorite sweet would have to be a fruit pie of some sort. Used to be ice cream cake, but that’s too sweet now.


14 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 7:31 am

I know what you mean by “too sweet” – sometimes I want that, but more often I like things that have most of their sweetness occurring naturally – through fruit or cocoa :)


15 Miriam @ Sometimes I Veg October 7, 2011 at 8:00 am

I made a sweet potato, asparagus and cranberry stew last night that was almost too sweet. Natural sugars can totally rock.


16 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 8:13 am

Mmm, that sounds SO good! :)


17 Lisa October 7, 2011 at 8:50 am

I just sat here by myself and said, Mmmm, out loud approximately 14 times….
I love desserts. Mostly all of them :)

Right now, I have to say apple crisp is my fave…


18 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 12:06 pm

while I don’t always have to have dessert, I definitely do enjoy it! I think I like creating it just as much if not more than eating it! 😀

Happy Weekend, Lisa B!


19 Haley @ Health Freak College Girl October 7, 2011 at 9:33 am

i definitely bookmarked all of these recipes haha


20 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 12:05 pm

great, Haley! you’ll have to report back when you make them! :)


21 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen October 7, 2011 at 11:02 am

That raw apple cobbler is actually what drove me to your site after seeing it on foodgawker. It is seriously so beautiful! vanilla coffee fudge bars sound pretty amazing right now though 😉


22 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 12:04 pm

thank you Gina! I hope you try the cobbler sometime – for being simple, it tastes fairly decadent! :) as do the bars… but those aren’t as simple 😉


23 Amanda October 7, 2011 at 11:02 am

This is my kind of parade. :-)

Pie of any kind, but cherry is my all time favorite.


24 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 12:02 pm

hi Amanda! thanks for coming to the parade! 😉 I need to make a pie… I love pie… :)


25 Allie October 7, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Ohh, I have had those fudge bars bookmarked for way too long, they need to happen!

And my favorite go-to not-too-decadent dessert is banana oatmeal cookies. Yumm. Nothing better!


26 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 2:17 pm

oooh, yep, those sound GOOD.


27 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 7, 2011 at 1:03 pm

I just opened about 5 links..thanks for the reminders.

I want to make it all :)


28 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 2:17 pm

you are welcome, Averie – and thank you! 😉


29 Lacey October 7, 2011 at 2:07 pm

I love your photography. You make everything look so amazing.


30 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 2:15 pm

31 STUFT Mama October 7, 2011 at 2:22 pm

Oh my yumminess!!!! All your recipes (and photos) are amazing! My favorite dessert is anything chocolate nad peanut butter. Those peanut butter earths are on my list. They make me smile when I see them! :)


32 spabettie October 7, 2011 at 2:33 pm

thank you, Kristin! I love those too – and anything else chocolate peanut butter.


33 Pure2raw twins October 7, 2011 at 5:52 pm

I love warm gooey chocolate chip cookies or anything with chocolate or mint!


34 Julie October 7, 2011 at 6:58 pm

These all look delish!


35 Thomas October 7, 2011 at 8:37 pm

best parade I’ve ever been to, that’s for sure! 😀


36 Ann October 7, 2011 at 8:46 pm

Wow – what a GREAT line-up of desserts! I was just thinking of something similar with the raw apple cobbler, but I couldn’t visualize it. You absolutely nailed it….and it’s SO beautiful! Your photographs are really stunning! (following!)


37 spabettie October 11, 2011 at 5:51 am

This is the most beautiful and colorful parade of desserts! 😀


40 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) October 8, 2011 at 11:31 am

I’m a cupcake girl for the most part, but my all time favorite cake is angel food cake! You’re killing me with this post! I need all of this NOW!


41 October 8, 2011 at 6:27 pm

Even though I’m only repeating what everyone else has already said, I absolutely adore your blog!!! Your recipes are truly amazing and so, so creative! And your photography is simply beautiful! So happy to have found your blog!

43 (what runs) Lori October 8, 2011 at 8:01 pm

Holy S(*&! This post, this one post, is filled with incredible. Seriously. You’re a crafty genius my friend. Those vegan macs and vanilla coffee fudge bars?! Wow.


44 spabettie October 11, 2011 at 5:46 am

45 Shannon @ Healthiful Balance October 9, 2011 at 7:54 am

47 Jojo October 9, 2011 at 2:17 pm

Wow, all of your desserts are gorgeous.


48 spabettie October 11, 2011 at 5:44 am

thank you, Jojo!


49 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table October 9, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Normally I go right for the chocolate (and I did droll over those cupcakes), but the raw apple cobbler looks incredible! So creative. Cheers to vegan desserts!

My favorite is usually vegan oatmeal cookies or brownies. It may or may not be 50% based on the fact that I love batter. :)


50 spabettie October 11, 2011 at 5:39 am

the raw apple cobbler is a GOOD one – I urge you to try it! 😀

the VERY BEST THING about vegan desserts?? you can eat that batter!! Mmm, batter


51 Alexia @ NamasteYoga October 9, 2011 at 10:47 pm

i just made a raw cheesecake with apricot/date crust and it was more than delicious! Your new york style cheesecake inspires me now, i will have to take on that. And VEGAN macaroons! wow! i love macaroons but only the original ones from LA DUREE ( i was only available to get them in France and London). All the other recreated versions i have tried where either too sweet, too buttery or both! Vegan ones sound amazing!


52 spabettie October 11, 2011 at 5:38 am

I have been having fun with the macarons, most definitely! the cardamom flavored were SO good.

I made a raw cheesecake this weekend – I sure do love those. sometimes you need a classic though, right? 😀


53 Fit Chick in the City October 10, 2011 at 4:42 am

These all look insanely good! Please send some over asap!


54 spabettie October 11, 2011 at 5:36 am

😀 thank you, girl!


55 Kath November 2, 2011 at 10:31 am

now I have a craving for a sweet. it is 3 in the afternoon here…..


56 Miran November 4, 2011 at 2:57 pm

tasty treats all around – thanks for the holiday ideas!


57 Lisa November 7, 2011 at 4:24 pm

YUM! thanks for these, they all look great!
