Trader Joe’s Coffee Cake

Trader Joe’s Coffee Cake

I know that most people are probably still working on their New Year’s Resolutions and trying to eat healthy food, but this past weekend I was all about comfort food.  I’m still nursing a cold (or some sort of sore-throat-stuffed-sinuses-cough-thing), so I went all out on a baking and cooking extravaganza yesterday that included this [...]

Vanilla Yogurt with Oranges & Pistachios

Vanilla Yogurt with Oranges & Pistachios

I came up with this dessert (along with the Chocolate Cherry Loaf) for the recent feature that Whole Soy was kind enough to write about me.  If you’ve never tried soy yogurt, you’re missing out!  It’s really tasty, and it can easily be substituted for regular yogurt in any recipe. I wanted at least one [...]

Chocolate Cherry Loaf

Chocolate Cherry Loaf

I was recently contacted by Whole Soy about submitting a couple recipes for their website, which I was more than happy to do.  I love coming up with new recipe ideas or putting a new spin on old ones.  And of course I love an excuse to have to test out some cake! Since the recipes [...]

Baked Granola

Baked Granola

Granola is so easy to make from scratch, and it would be worth it even if it were more difficult.  Most recipes out there are already vegan, often with the exception of honey, which is really easy to substitute for.  Every now and then you come across a recipe that calls for butter, but again, [...]

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

I know the temperatures have dropped for most of us, but even when it’s cold out I still can’t resist a good shake.  When I was little my mom would sometimes make me killer chocolate shakes, and they were one of my favorites things in the whole world. Of course, you can make a non-dairy [...]

“Fronch” Toast

“Fronch” Toast

The other morning I was craving a good “weekend” breakfast, but we were really short on time.  I grabbed my copy of “Vegan with a Vengeance” and went right to “Fronch” Toast, since I wasn’t really feeling a pancake vibe. After tearing through the cabinets to find my chickpea flour, I was able to pull [...]

Tofu Benny

Tofu Benny

Behold!  The Tofu Benny from Vegan Brunch!  I might be a little too excited about this, but it’s only because it was so, so good!  And even better, it was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be.  To save time I did end up using English Muffins for the base rather [...]

I already like on FB and I’m not on twitter. Congratulations, Michelle!  Thanks again to everyone who entered, and stay [...]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Last week I caught a nasty summer cold and totally lost my appetite.  Every now and then it would rear it’s little head, but when it did, absolutely nothing sounded good to me.  I felt like there was something that I wanted, but I just couldn’t think of what it might be. I had a [...]

Vegan 101: Tempeh Bacon

Bacon, I love you, but you’re bringing me down. The next installment in my Vegan 101 series is all about one of my past  loves – bacon.  I’d go as far as calling myself a former addict, but these smokey tempeh strips get me through the cravings without having to eat the Babe stuff.  There are [...]

Mango Bread

Mango Bread

There’s nothing like a fresh, ripe mango.  I’d never eaten them until probably a few years ago, and I was totally missing out!  I think I was intimidated by not being sure about when they were ripe, and then not knowing exactly the best way to cut them up.  I finally got over all of [...]

Biscuits & Gravy

Biscuits & Gravy

Ah, Biscuits and Gravy, one of Ryan’s all-time favorite dishes.  Before I stopped eating meat, I’d never had “real” biscuits and gravy.  Being the picky eater that I was, the idea of blobby, white sausage gravy grossed me out.  Gravy was definitely not something I ate as a kid, and even as an adult I [...]

Cherry Almond Loaf

Cherry Almond Loaf

The other day when I was looking for a particular post, I came across this photo in a draft that I had totally forgotten about.  I have no idea how this slipped through the cracks!  I meant to write about it this summer, and just forgot I guess.  Poor loaf. I made this when Ryan [...]
