Grilled Teese!

Grilled Teese!

I’ve been meaning to make this sandwich all month since April is National Grilled Cheese month, which I didn’t know until my sister sent me an article about it a few weeks ago.  When I realized that today was the last day of the month, and that there were only a few more hours of [...]

Banana Bread with Walnuts & The LA Veggie Pride Parade Wrap-Up

Banana Bread with Walnuts & The LA Veggie Pride Parade Wrap-Up

I’ll kick off this post with my variation of the Lower Fat Banana Bread recipe in Veganomicon.  It’s super easy to make, and it’s so good.  I’m actually not a huge fan of nuts with banana bread, but I’ve been making these for the craft service on the show Entourage, and this is how they [...]

Sugar Donut Muffin and the LA Veggie Pride Parade!

Sugar Donut Muffin and the LA Veggie Pride Parade!

I was looking around the Baking Bites website one day and I came across this recipe for Sugar Donut Muffins that looked really yummy and really easy to veganize.  This actually does taste like a delicious cross between a donut and a muffin.  I’ve since made some tweaks to the recipe, but I’ll post the [...]

C’est La V at 2 New Farmers’ Markets!

C’est La V is now available at two farmer’s markets!  We’ll be offering scones, biscotti, fudgy brownies, and cookies.  I’m planning to expand the line and will try to vary what we have at the markets each week.  A great bonus of starting these is that people who place orders can now pick them up [...]

Magic Cookie Bars

Magic Cookie Bars

This is a Magic Cookie bar recipe that I’m in the midst of testing to try to get it just right.  I used to know these as Seven Layer Bars and I loved them with butterscotch chips, but I can’t find any non-dairy ones around here.  To be honest, I don’t miss them that much [...]

Mini Chocolate Cake Donuts

Mini Chocolate Cake Donuts

I used to love chocolate cake donuts, so I was really excited when I saw a recipe for them on the packaging of my new mini donut pan.  It was easy enough to veganize, but these just didn’t stand up to those donuts of my memory.  Granted, those probably had tons of artificial flavors and [...]

Reduced Fat Vegenaise

Reduced Fat Vegenaise

We went to Follow Your Heart for lunch yesterday, and I got a few goodies from the market, including this new Reduced Fat Vegenaise.  I probably should have known that this was going to be coming out, but I didn’t, so I was super happy to find out about it. I don’t really know how [...]

Mini Pistachio & Anise Seed Biscotti

Mini Pistachio & Anise Seed Biscotti

I recently received an email from Paramount Farms with information about the pistachio recall – “We wanted to let you know that not all pistachios have been affected and that a new site, PistachioRecall.org, the result of a collaboration between the FDA and California growers/processors, is now available. The site lists specific safe pistachio products [...]

Celery Soup

Celery Soup

A lot of times I’ll have a recipe that calls for one or two celery stalks, and then I have a whole bunch left over.  I don’t really like to eat raw celery.  In fact, I kind of hate it.  Even smearing it with peanut butter when I was a kid couldn’t get me to [...]
