Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review!

Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review!

Have you heard of Vegan Cuts?  They offer great deals on vegan products, as well as monthly snack and beauty boxes.  They were kind enough to send me the March snack box to review.  Let’s get right to the goods! Since I’m such a sweets addict I decided to start off the review with these [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Earl Grey Tea Cookies

Earl Grey Tea Cookies

I found the recipe for these Earl Grey Tea Cookies back in 2009, and I came across it again over the weekend while trying to figure out what I wanted to make for my book club meeting.  They seemed like the perfect treat – especially since the book that we read was by a British [...]

Chocolate-Cherry Slices

Chocolate-Cherry Slices

I had my eye on a recipe for Chocolate-Peppermint Slices (from this book that my Mom gave me many years ago), and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I might make a Chocolate-Cherry version for the holiday. It was my first time making this kind of cookie, and even thought it takes [...]

Pine Nut & Anise Cookies

Pine Nut & Anise Cookies

When I think of desserts for Valentine’s Day, what comes to mind more often that not are over-the-top-decadent chocolate concoctions.  And while I’m all for that (who isn’t?), I wanted to craft a unique meal that ends with something more unexpected.  And let’s face it, there ain’t gonna be no “romance” on Valentine’s night if [...]

Magical Coconut Cookie Bars

Magical Coconut Cookie Bars

Before going vegan, magic cookie bars (or 7-layer bars, or dream bars or whatever you called them where you were from) were one of my favorite treats.  Looking back, I realize I never actually baked them when I was younger, and I did a lot of baking.  Maybe they were even more special because I [...]
