Balsamic Strawberries with Cashew Pastry Cream

Things have been a bit busy as of late with prepping for the Animal Acres Gala, baking for the Hollywood Farmers’ Market, and shipping orders from the online store.  With so much time being spent in the kitchen, it’s been a while since I’ve really cooked an elaborate meal.  One of our favorite things to [...]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Snickerdoodle Blondies

I spend a ton of time baking, and when I bake for myself I like to try new things so it doesn’t just feel like work.  I wanted to make a fun and easy-to-eat dessert to bring to the Bowl, so I searched though all my recipes that I dream about having time to test.  [...]

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 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 [...]

Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Chocolate Crackle Cookies

These cookies are awesome.  They’re almost like a little brownie bite covered in powdered sugar.  We made a non-vegan version of these at Leda’s, but never ended up doing a vegan version.  I thought it was time to remedy that and added them to my menu.  They’re based on this recipe from good old Martha [...]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

A good friend of mine was an associate producer on an independent film called “Mother and Child” that just finished shooting, and she ordered my cookies for their wrap party.  I ended up making over 400 cookies!  It was pretty exhausting, but Ryan and I got to go to the party, and I have to [...]

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

I made these peanut butter cookies along with the chocolate chips for my friend’s wrap party.  I really love peanut butter.  A lot.  I love it on sandwiches, with apples, sometimes spread on pieces of dark chocolate, sometimes all by itself…  I could go on.  My main peanut butter weakness is Peanut Butter and Co.’s [...]

“The Rugelach”

“The Rugelach”

My mom used to get tubs of Rugelach that we would eat way too much of.  I really missed it, so I was happy to find this recipe in “The Joy of Vegan Baking” by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  We had some people at the party who are the farthest thing from vegan, and they couldn’t stop [...]

Snickerdoodles and Teeccino

Snickerdoodles and Teeccino

I’m still testing recipes for the new business and I can never leave well enough alone.  We had a great snickerdoodle at Leda’s that was really popular and always tricked non-vegans, but for some reason I feel like I still have to test other recipes to make sure that it really was the one I [...]
