On most Sundays, I get this urge to bake.  We're making brunch, and I just keep cooking.  Today, I was in the mood for cookies.  I saw a recipe in Southern Inspired magazine that I picked up for free at the gym a couple months ago.  The recipe was for Oatmeal Blueberry Cookies, but it involved creaming butter and sugar, and I really wasn't in the mood for all that cleaning.  My favorite vegan blogger, SusanV over at FatFree Vegan Kitchen: Sinlessly Delicious, rarely mixes anything in a mixer when baking (mainly because she doesn't use...
