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 [...]

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

I tested another recipe over the weekend for our Oscar party, but this one would also be perfect for the Superbowl this Sunday.  I wanted to do something different than my normal Hot Artichoke Dip, and using chicken worked for one the of the title puns I’ve been working on.  I came across this recipe [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Quick Noodles with Kale & Tofu

If you’re anything like me, you spend many a night standing in front of the cabinets or fridge trying to figure out what the heck to make for dinner.  After a long day, the last thing I want to do is cook, but you can only have cereal for dinner so many nights before it [...]

C’est La Video: Pasta with “Meat” Sauce & Speedy Garlic Bread

Do you guys know about Meatless Mondays?  If you’re one of my non-vegan readers, you may not have heard of this campaign, but it’s becoming more and more mainstream, and now even Oprah is in on it.  I’ve been wanting to start a Meatless Monday feature on the blog for a while now, and I’m [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Super Easy Onion Dip

Super Easy Onion Dip

Ryan’s birthday was Friday, so we had a few friends over on Saturday to celebrate.  I’d been working on a large cupcake order for a couple days, so after finishing that and helping to clean up our place, I didn’t have a lot of energy left to make food. I did end up making one [...]

Summer Fruit BBQ & Strawberry Basil Limeade

Summer Fruit BBQ & Strawberry Basil Limeade

Last weekend we had the pleasure of hanging out with our friends, Shannon & Mike, and their adorable little girl, Asha.  I’d come across a recipe for Strawberry Basil Margaritas that sounded amazing, and I thought it’d be a tasty addition to the yummy grilled vegetables and salad that Shannon and Mike were making. We [...]

Vegan Popeyes Biscuits

Vegan Popeyes Biscuits

I know they’re not good for you, but man were they worth it.  Popeyes Biscuits were one of my weaknesses, and the other day I started thinking about them and couldn’t get them out of my mind.  I figured there had to be a way to make a vegan version, and with the fantastical world [...]

Chocolate Graham Cracker Pudding Pie

Chocolate Graham Cracker Pudding Pie

This is one of my favorite recipes, and one of the first dairy-free recipes I ever made.  It’s from Marilu Henner’s “Healthy Life Kitchen” cookbook.  This pie is really simple to make, but it tastes incredibly decadent.  It’s not the healthiest food you can eat, but it’s a dessert that you certainly don’t have to [...]

Patriotic Cookie Pizza

Patriotic Cookie Pizza

Fourth of July weekend brings back so many great memories of spending time with friends and family, hanging out in the pool and stuffing myself silly on my Mom’s amazing lemon bars (although of course now I make a vegan version). My sister and I used to make cakes frosted with whipped topping and decorated [...]
