Coconut Lemon Trifle with Fresh Berries

Coconut Lemon Trifle with Fresh Berries

A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I was making a berry trifle, and I took a ton of photos so I could show you guys the process.  It’s not really a recipe per se, more like a bunch of recipes all thrown together. Once you make up each component of [...]

Derby Pie

Derby Pie

In honor of Pi Day, I present Wolfie’s Derby Pie from La Dolce Vegan.  I’ve been wanting to make this pie for years, and I finally got around to it.  This is the second pie I’ve ever baked with a real crust – as opposed to a graham cracker crust or a Crostata. After making a [...]

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Right on the heels of Part 1 of my Oscar post comes Part 2!  Here’s the “Argochoke Dip: Go Cluck Yourself”, which I posted about a few weeks ago.  This was a big hit.  We had a couple vegetarians at the party, but no other vegans.  In case you’d be worried to serve this to [...]

Oscars 2013 – Part 1

Oscars 2013 – Part 1

I did eight dishes inspired by the best picture nominees for our Oscar party this year.  I planned nine, but Pearl didn’t want to nap so there was no time for the “Zero Dark Meat Meatballs”, a reprise of “There Will Not be Blood Meatballs.”  Oh well… Above is a shot of the almost full [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 1 – Butterscotch Brownie

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 1 – Butterscotch Brownie

I was recently sent a copy of Betty Goes Vegan by Annie Dan & Shannon of the awesome blog, “Meet the Shannons.”  I’m a huge fan of the blog, so I was very excited to get this book!  If you’re not familiar with the Shannons, they’ve been veganizing Betty Crocker recipes – Annie explains it [...]

S’more Bars

S’more Bars

Continuing with my Oscar party dishes, I’ll be making these S’more Bars for the film Amour.  Unlike the Les Mis bread, we’re going full on title pun with this one.  Which means they should probably be S’mour bars for the sake of the party. These are way too easy to make for being as good [...]

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Looking at the calendar yesterday I realized that we’re a lot further into November than I’d realized.  That means Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I’d better start figuring out what I’m going to make! With that in mind, I thought I’d go through past posts that would be appropriate for the holiday.  Let’s [...]

Vanilla Raspberry Cake

Vanilla Raspberry Cake

I actually made this cake a couple weeks ago, but I’ve been so caught up in thinking about Thanksgiving that I didn’t post it right away.  As you guys probably already know, I’m pretty fond of the baking mixes from Trader Joe’s, especially lately as I just haven’t had as much energy for baking or [...]

Spooky Witches’ Fingers

Spooky Witches’ Fingers

Our friends Shawn and Alix hosted their Fourth Annual Halloween Horror Movie Marathon over the weekend, and I made these spooky Witches’ Finger cookies to bring along.  We were both pretty beat (Ryan spent the entire day painting the nursery, and I’m just generally beat these days), but we were able to stay for one [...]

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Mix

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Mix

As much as I love to bake, I just don’t have the energy to do it lately unless it’s for an order.  Cooking in general, as well as walking, standing, breathing…  they’re all much harder these days as my belly continues to grow. When we were doing our Sunday shopping at Trader Joe’s I saw [...]

Portland – Part 1

Portland – Part 1

Ryan and I got to Portland Friday morning, and after an early check-in, some unpacking and map-studying, we hit the ground running.  We started at Hungry Tiger Too and had some nachos and tofufuffalo wings (tofu buffalo wings).  Ryan was able to kick off his craft beer tour of Portland, and I was in heaven [...]

Breakfast for Dinner!

Breakfast for Dinner!

We had some friends over for dinner this past weekend, and I thought it would be fun to make breakfast for dinner.  Fortunately, they were totally up for it, and not even knowing that we were planning on making mimosas, they brought me some non-alcoholic champagne!  Needless to say, I was very happy about that.  [...]

Apricot-Cherry  Crisp

Apricot-Cherry Crisp

I made this Apricot-Cherry Crisp a few weeks ago, but realized that I’d never posted about it.  The recipe comes from Deborah Madison’s “Local Flavors”, and while it’s not an entirely vegan cookbook, many of the recipes are easily adapted. I was really excited to try this recipe since I love both cherries and apricots, [...]
