Anyone want to come over and have tea and muffins? :hhehe… :D

I rate this recipe 5/5 stars….no…mabe 6/5 stars!!!


Now….here are some more FAQ’s continued from my earlier post:

5. Leah asks, "How often would you say you go to the gym vs. going outdoors for a run? And do you mainly use the treadmill or do you mix it up a little?"

  • About the indoor vs. outdoor question- I tend to do indoor workouts during the work week because it is quick to get to the gym in my building and I am ALWAYS pressed for time in the morning. I can’t workout after work though, I am just too exhausted after a long day. I am definitely a morning workout person! I like to use my weekends for getting outside because I have more time and I can plan my run around when it will be warmest outside. However, this week is supposed to be warm so I may get out for a run or two outside during the week. We shall see!As for my indoor workouts, I tend to stick to the treadmill because I find it the most challenging. I have recently been doing the elliptical for part of my cardio, but I make sure I put it at a resistance 9 so it is very tough, otherwise I find it is easy to just ‘coast’ along on it. We don’t have a stair master, but if we did I would alternate with that because I find it to be a great workout as well.

6. Kristin says, "Sketchie is beautiful, what breed of cat is he?"

  • He is a Bengal breed and he has 7th generation Asian Leopard in him. Bengal breeds are known to be very dog like and Sketchie is no exception!!! He has tons of energy, loves people and pets, and he can learn tricks :)

7. Beth says, "One quick question: your skin is so pretty – as your blog title says, you do glow! What products do you use on your skin aside from makeup? I’ve battled some acne throughout my life and I’m still looking for that glow!"

  • Thank you for being so sweet! I can assure you that I struggle with skin issues just like everyone else. I have battled acne my whole life, and have recently had it crop up again since going off the BCP! To see what I use on my skin, see my ‘Glow’ page for my favourite products!

8. Meghan says, "Do you just uses the St. Ives scrub to cleanse your skin, or following a different cleanser? Your complexion is gorgeous!"

  • I just use the St. Ives scrub alone (although I should probably use a cleanser first!?) :)

9. Jenn says, "What is a great all over moisturizer?"

10. Jenn says, "Where do you find the makeup products listed on the other page?"

  • I buy most of my low-end make-up products at our local drugstore (Shoppers Drug Mart) and the higher end products I buy at Sephora.

11. Jenn asks, "What do you suggest for ab workouts?"

  • See this post for me performing my favourite ab workouts!


Oh by the way, Eric got a gift from my mom too! All the way from Turkey!


I have never had it before but have always wanted to try it. To my ‘delight’ I read on the box that it is 100% all natural, vegan, and vegetarian approved! Even better :)

I leave you with our Engagement Pictures Slideshow


Our photographers are amazing! Honestly, they are the most talented photographers I have ever met. :D The slideshow is to the song ‘Crazy Love’

Nighty night lovies!

WOW, those pictures are gorgeous!!! You are such a lovely couple!

PS: I love your blog!

I think a lot of us know Turkish Delight from the Chronicles of Narnia. As a youngster reading the books, I couldn’t imagine what sort of candy would make you turn in your three siblings to the local witch. I mean, that had to be some damn good candy.

I’ve never had it, but others have been very disappointed. Maybe there’s no way an actual candy could live up to trade-three-souls-for-it candy, but still.

Have you tried it yet?


Hangry Pants November 11, 2008 at 12:30 am

I love this recipe. The streusel looks so tasty!


Alicia November 11, 2008 at 5:02 am

What a beautiful engagement picture! Both of you look so happy and natural. :)

And I have to comment on the gorgeous muffins. I adore muffins and just ate half of a coffee walnut muffin before my run earlier.


VeggieGirl November 11, 2008 at 8:07 am


Such stunning photographs.


glidingcalm November 23, 2008 at 12:27 am

wow Angela! that slide show is just beautiful! you two are such a gorgeous couple!


Erin September 12, 2009 at 10:00 pm

I made these muffins tonight and they are SO good! I’m linking back to your blog with the recipe if that’s okay! :)


Darlene December 30, 2009 at 6:05 pm

gorgeous photos, I’m a pro photographer as well so I know. I’m a bit confused by this recipe though. Isn’t your blog about healthy eating? How does 2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup of oil fit into that? I’m looking for recipes that don’t use sugar, or less of it, or substitutes. How would you make this better?


juliana July 10, 2013 at 5:14 pm

I dont get it? I thought this blog was vegan?


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 12, 2013 at 9:51 am

Hi Juliana, I went vegan sometime in 2009 – so recipes prior to then are not necessarily vegan. Hope this helps!


juliana July 18, 2013 at 1:16 am

Thank you! Your blog is my no 1 go-to vegan recipe inspiration and I was just so confused!!! Lol. Do u think it would turn out without the eggs?


Julia September 6, 2013 at 4:20 pm

Baking theses muffins right now and the kitchen smells heavenly and sooo Fall-like! Also love your engagement slideshow AND love the song. Really sweet.


Terri June 4, 2014 at 12:02 pm

Will you be veganizing this recipe?


Vee October 4, 2014 at 7:04 pm

Hi Angela!
Just wondering if you have a vegan adaptation of this recipe?


Brenda October 31, 2016 at 9:28 am

Just bought your cookbooks a few weeks ago and my entire family is loving all the recipes! Quick question, do you know the name of the granite counter tops shown in the 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow From the Inside Out book on pages 272 / 275? Not sure if you use a test kitchen for the photos, or your actual kitchen. This fall my staple recipe is your soul-soothing African peanut stew! Best long run recovery meal!


Angela Liddon November 7, 2016 at 9:15 am

Hey Brenda, It was actually a friend’s kitchen where we shot all the “lifestyle” photography and I’m afraid I don’t know (but aren’t they some gorgeous countertops!?). I’m so happy to hear you’re loving that stew! It’s a fave in this house. I just made some last week.


mary king November 20, 2016 at 3:49 pm

The muffins look great – but not vegan! Egg substitute?
