Strawberries & Mango Butter

Strawberries & Mango Butter

A friend of mine recently told me about Trader Joe’s Mango Butter.  (She also told me about the dried green mango they carry, which I’m totally addicted to.  I think she’s trying to make me fat.)  A couple days after seeing her, they were sampling the mango butter in the store with strawberries.  And, just [...]

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Bruschetta is one of my favorite things to make (and eat), and I realized that despite the fact that I make this multiple times every summer, I’d never actually done a post on it. You’ll want to save this for when tomatoes are in season, and you can use whatever kinds you like best. [...]

Vegan Pan-bagnat

Vegan Pan-bagnat

Before I was vegan, one of my favorite sandwiches was the Pan-bagnat at Vie de France.  I don’t think they offer it anymore, but it was basically tuna, green beans, and salad greens all drenched in an amazing garlic dressing.  The best part was the french bread it was served on – it was like [...]

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

With so much beautiful asparagus at the Farmers’ Market lately, I’ve been trying to find new recipes that feature this tasty veggie.  This one looked great and seemed really easy to veganize, and since I love the combo of lemon and asparagus together, I thought I’d give it a try.

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

“Spirited” Walnut Date Spread

My mom recently gave me an adorable little cookbook called Simply Scones that has recipes for the titular biscuit-like treats and spreads to serve alongside them.  Both my mom and I love scones (and bread, and cake, and cookies…).  It’s really out of our hands I think; it must be the Bohemian blood or something. [...]

Awesome Easy Layer Dip

Awesome Easy Layer Dip

For the life of me, I couldn’t come up with a name for this dip.  Soy Chorizo Papaya Mango Salsa?  Guacamole Chorizo Tropical something?  Tropical Spicy Creamy Chip Stuff? It’s awesome, and it’s easy, so that’s what I went with!  I made this for a Bears’ brunch we had on Sunday, and it was a [...]

Simple Mushroom Bruschetta

Simple Mushroom Bruschetta

Last week I came down with some sort of terrible virus and totally lost my appetite.  I couldn’t even watch commercials for food, and the thought of eating anything was even worse.  It was a special sort of hell for me. But I’m so glad to say that I’m feeling MUCH better, and am actually [...]

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 [...]
