Summer Sweet Treats: Vegan Coffee Ice Cream Recipe

Everyone has that one late night, online mega-store driven moment of weakness. Bathed in the etheral blue light of your super phone,  you think: ”This is a great deal. I need one of these. How could I have lived so long without one?” Click. Just as simply, in 5 to 7 business days, you find yourself […]

Game Day Burgers: Vegetarian Portobello Mini Sliders

If you haven’t figured it out yet, our staff is rather divided when it comes to game day delights. Some of us prefer to live the carnivorous life, devouring every bit of beef and chicken (wing) in our path, and the rest of us want to eat something delicious, but (still) a bit more figure […]

A Fresh Peach Melba Basil Summer Smoothie

It’s almost officially summer, and even sans air conditioner, I’m excited. Peaches are my favorite summer fruit, and I may still be a bit early, but I’ll make up for it with enthusiasm. This season has already seen a few peach cakes, and it’s only technically a few days in. Now my favorite fruit, and […]

Paleo Fruit Roll Ups: How to Make Mango Leather

This recipe for paleo fruit roll ups – aka, mango leather – comes from my mom, who makes it usually once or twice a year. It’s a healthy snack that kids can help to make…

Kale: It Means ‘Hope’ In My Language. Oh Wait, It Means Salad.

I suppose I wouldn’t be a good vegan if I didn’t offer you a recipe for kale salad; and to indulge the stereotype even more, I used hemp seeds on it this time around.  If you were to take  something that was previously used solely as a garnish on every salad bar and buffet line  […]

Sunday Breakfast Ideas – The Art of Gluten Free Pancakes

Pancakes. The food evocative of weekend brunches, Sunday’s in your PJs, or that illicit feeling you get when you have them for dinner. Plain, loaded with fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips, and topped with hedonistic amounts of maple syrup and melted butter, there are no rules with pancakes. What do you do, though, if you’re […]

Hail Merry, Queen of Tarts! Delicious, Crave-Worthy Vegan Desserts

  A box arrived on my doorstep one early autumn afternoon. Nestled in its insulated package were six perfect individual-sized tarts. Hail Merry, indeed. With the holiday season closing in on us more quickly than we’d like, and so very much to do, we can take comfort in someone having prepared the perfect, decadent, single-serving […]

Vegetarian One Pot Lentil, Kale, and Leek Stew

Sunday afternoons are when I catch up on the week, and although I love cooking a big family dinner, heating up the kitchen when it’s 95 degrees outside is just not a pleasant experience. One pot meals can be a lifesaver-both on time and on energy spent in the kitchen, and if you know how […]

Sangria Cake, a Tailored Birthday Cake

Predominantly, birthday cakes tend to be a chocolate/vanilla, or both sort of an affair. People tend to sit on one side of that fence, though a few of us straddle it happily. When it comes to flavors, I for one, am all for duplicity, or even triplicity. Why stop at two when you can melodiously […]

Roll Me Up Some Dinner With A Vegan Roasted Broccoli Stromboli

Since I stopped eating dairy, I’d forgotten largely about stromboli, or stuffed breads in general, until a friend whipped one up at a holiday gathering. They have to comforting starchy goodness, combined with that one dish meal ease.

We’re Nerding Out For Pi (π) Day: Coconut Creme Pie Recipe

Whether or not you’re brave enough to admit it, deep in your heart, you know that March 14th isn’t just any other day. It’s Pi (π) day. A day based solely on a reverential love of the mathematical constant representing the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Before Pi, March 14th […]

Blueberry Fonuts, or Muffin Holes

Not really a donut, not really a muffin, but definitely breakfast. This treat comes to us by way of this month’s issue of Saveur, boasting donuts from around the world. Donuts are tantalizing, almost forbidden. How many of us are willing to attempt frying donuts in the confines of our own home? Nosce te ipsum, […]

A Brutish Breakfast: Hugely Delicious Apricot Cardamom Scones

I’ve tried the right way before. I’ve followed the rules to the letter, and even in spite of that little voice that says: ‘Hey, are you sure you wanna do it like that?”, ending in the bitter taste of disappointment. The disappointment of love’s labor lost on a weekend morning, when all you wanted to […]

A Tale of Two Recipes: For The Chocolate Lover

If you’re the chocolate lover in the relationship, and like me, willing to sacrifice from time to time, but still in need of that dark, tasty treat from time to time, this is the recipe for you. Check out my other recipe for a Lemon Almond Tart (gluten free, by the way) that I made […]
