Caesar Salad, Anyone?

Lately, I've been having really bad cravings for caesar salad.

Has anyone had any luck trying to replicate the taste/texture of it? I've found recipes on the interwebnet, but they all call for high-tech expensive food gadgets like food processors, and I live in a college dormatory, and all I really have access to is an oven, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a stove.

Can anyone help me?

Fabulous Frosting Help for Unadorned Brownies

So my boyfriend overwhelmed me with vegan chocolate goodness for my birthday and now I have two huge lovely vegan brownies from Whole Foods that I want to dress up to take to a friend's house. Any suggestions for how to dress 'em up? I need to steer clear of peanut butter, but other nuts/ nut butters are fine. Also I was thinking maybe one of the following: orange frosting with walnuts, cherry buttercream, or chocolate maple with pecans...something seasonal with either fresh fruit or liquor incorporated perhaps?

thanks!
