Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed Artichokes

My friend Betty Cahill writes the blog “Delishy Town”, and while it’s not entirely vegan, it’s very vegan friendly.  A while back Betty made some amazing looking stuffed artichokes, and I made a mental note that I’d have to try a version of them.  I used her recipe as a guide but wasn’t in the [...]

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Bruschetta is one of my favorite things to make (and eat), and I realized that despite the fact that I make this multiple times every summer, I’d never actually done a post on it. You’ll want to save this for when tomatoes are in season, and you can use whatever kinds you like best. [...]

Roasted Chickpeas!

Roasted Chickpeas!

I know that Roasted Chickpeas are nothing new to many of you, but despite the fact that I’ve been seeing them all over the place for a while now, this was my first time making them.  I kind of wondered how good they could actually be, and I have to say that they were all [...]

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

With so much beautiful asparagus at the Farmers’ Market lately, I’ve been trying to find new recipes that feature this tasty veggie.  This one looked great and seemed really easy to veganize, and since I love the combo of lemon and asparagus together, I thought I’d give it a try. This recipe was so easy [...]

Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Mini Peanut Butter Cups

I have fond Easter memories of pastel “grass”-packed baskets brimming with yummy sweet treats, hours of playing with my cousins (some of the time spent swapping said treats), and a huge meal with the whole family to cap the day off.  Since Ryan and I don’t have any family here in LA, Easter isn’t what [...]

Tofu Egg Salad Crescent Cups

Tofu Egg Salad Crescent Cups

I couldn’t get eggs and asparagus out of my head when I was thinking about what to make for Easter this year, so I decided to bring both together in these tasty little Easter-inspired Tofu Egg Salad Crescent Cups. What really sets these apart is an ingredient that I learned about from vegan goddess Isa [...]

Cupcake Wars – Midnight Chocolate Peanut Butter “Cup”-Cake

I know what you’re thinking – Another Cupcake Wars cupcake?  How?  What?  Um… Kim, you didn’t make it to Round 2…  How could you have another cupcake from the show? Just because I got eliminated after the first round doesn’t mean I didn’t plan for Round 2!  And you can bet your sweet little cupcake [...]

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

This recipe comes from the book Simply Scones that I was telling you guys about on Monday.  The name of this one had me at hello, if you know what I mean.  I have to admit that I don’t think I would have ever thought to make a peanut butter scone, as much as I [...]

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

My mom recently gave me an adorable little cookbook called Simply Scones that has recipes for the titular biscuit-like treats and spreads to serve alongside them.  Both my mom and I love scones (and bread, and cake, and cookies…).  It’s really out of our hands I think; it must be the Bohemian blood or something. [...]

Lemon Asparagus

Lemon Asparagus

When it comes to aphrodisiac foods, asparagus is the king!  I think that we can all see why people throughout history have given this vegetable that honor, and I mean that literally… I debated serving the spears with the classic drizzle of a hollandaise sauce, but I just didn’t feel like having to wash the [...]

Aphrodisiac Salad

Aphrodisiac Salad

Last year I made an Aphrodisiac Pasta dish for Valentine’s Day, and this year I wanted to make something else that also incorporates foods with aphrodisiac qualities.  This would make a great start to your main meal, or a nice light lunch to get you ready for the big night.  It’s pretty effortless to throw [...]
