Chocolate & Cinnamon Vegan Rugelach

Jews are effing great. For example, I was making this rugelach to impress my parents (because while I was visiting in West Palm my mom made her famous rugelach recipe and I asked her to make it vegan for me and she didn’t! Oy! So I got all huffy and figured I’d make it on my own and impress them with it when they came to visit, which I did) and it worked! My mom even said it was better than her rugelach. Jewsus Christmas, thanks mom! My dad ate about 17 of them in one sitting, which is always a good sign from a non-vegan.

Anyjew, here’s the recipe:

LOVE: Valentines Day is Gay

heart

If you are hetero, you can still read the following passage and get some great gift ideas. Same for the single people out there. And none of your bros will think you’re a fag for reading this – unless of course you are – in which case you didn’t watch the Super Bowl last night, like me. I hope that team won – you know, the one with the helmets and stuff…

Valentine’s Day is approaching… er… encroaching! It’s a surprise that the conservative powers-that-be haven’t outlawed Queers celebrating VDay – since most of us can’t actually prove we are in love through a costly and daunting, state-sanctified, ceremony of governmental approval. Thank god!

If you are still single and sick of your parents asking when you will deliver them their grandchildren, use this day to come out of the closet, even if you’re not gay. (At least it’ll get them off your back for a while – and then when you do fulfill the godly-destiny, they’ll be that much more excited to know the ‘gay thing’ was just a phase. Thank god! Again!)

Three Stupid Ideas for a Stupid Holiday
(read this if you’re single and bitter)

1. Send out a fake family photo. Photshop your head into the most disturbing Google-searched family photo you can find and send it to all your friends and family (FYI, that’s my head, not my body or baby or wife or creepy pool-birth-scenario). Like so:
Happy V day

2. Send a custom card or message, like so:

3. Call your Ex.
