Simple Crusty Bread

Simple Crusty Bread

I’ve been meaning to post about this bread for a long time, but I hadn’t actually made it in over a year.  Back when I was still doing Moveable Feast dinners with Alix (of the fantastic Cute + Delicious blog), she sent this recipe to me for our Spanish feast. I came back to this [...]

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 [...]

Spinach Dip

Spinach Dip

As promised, here’s the new dip I made for Ryan’s birthday get-together this past weekend.  It was my first time making the classic bread bowl spinach dip.  To be honest, I used to not really like this kind of dip at all.  After tasting this one though, I have to change my tune.  I’ll definitely [...]

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.  [...]

Tomato Pudding

Tomato Pudding

Ryan and I were invited to a birthday potluck over the weekend, and since I had to work on Saturday, I wanted to make something that wouldn’t be too complicated, but that would still be really tasty.  I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for a while, and it turned out to be the perfect [...]

St. Patrick’s day is almost here!  Bring on the green plates!  I have some yummy, boozy drinks to share with you later this week, but first I wanted to feature some tasty foodz that will help absorb some of that alcohol.  I hope you enjoy these past favorites! Let’s start with some vegan Irish sausages, [...]

Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Keeping with my theme of featuring foods with aphrodisiac qualities, this bread pudding packs in three of them – banana, chocolate and nutmeg.  The rum sauce doesn’t hurt either.  I don’t know that alcohol is technically considered an aphrodisiac, but it seems to do the job! This recipe is from the book Veganomicon, and since [...]

Super Bowl Foodz!

Now that we’ve covered dips and snacks, let’s get into some more substantial eats. When you’re cooking for a crowd, you can’t go wrong with a casserole, and this Mexican-Style Casserole is really tasty.  It’s like a cross between a burrito and lasagna, and it’ll serve a lot of people without a lot of work, [...]

Chocolate Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Chocolate Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

I told you I’ve been on a comfort food kick, and here’s even more proof!  Between the coffee cake, cocoa and a few other test recipes I’ve been playing around with, I definitely need to up my workouts if I want to keep fitting into my clothes!  I don’t know what I’m thinking having these [...]

Mini Radish Tartine

Mini Radish Tartine

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I thought I’d feature recipes this week that would work for the holiday, starting with these incredibly simple mini radish tartines. Before designing a menu for afternoon tea, I’d never had a radish sandwich before.  I knew that radishes served with butter were a classic french treat, and [...]

A Vegan Afternoon Tea

A Vegan Afternoon Tea

When I studied abroad in London I was fortunate enough to enjoy several afternoon teas.  I love sweets, I love sandwiches, and I actually prefer tea to coffee, so a classic tea is a little piece of heaven for me.  I know that my love of this tasty ritual informed my menu of baked goods [...]

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 [...]
