While cooking and meals together is definitely a shared passion among the Holstee team (cooking and/or the consumption of good food), it definitely plays a major and vital role in my personal life. In my food blog bio I state, “In cooking I find my passion, my rhythm and my clearest sense of self.” I think this has a lot to do with the flow I find within cooking that may be outside of or even above the work itself. This immersion that allows us to lose track of time (and not mind it) can many times be the revelation that causes our passion to be revealed.

When was the last time you lost track of time? What were you doing?

If cooking is also your life’s passion, here’s an easy recipe for vegan peanut butter cups. Warning: this recipe could also create an unshakable passion for chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (skip if your peanut butter is already salted)
  • 16 ounces dark chocolate (Lindt 70% is a good option for a completely dairy-free chocolate)
  •
