Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed Artichokes

My friend Betty Cahill writes the blog “Delishy Town”, and while it’s not entirely vegan, it’s very vegan friendly.  A while back Betty made some amazing looking stuffed artichokes, and I made a mental note that I’d have to try a version of them.  I used her recipe as a guide but wasn’t in the [...]

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 [...]

Roasted Chickpeas!

Roasted Chickpeas!

I know that Roasted Chickpeas are nothing new to many of you, but despite the fact that I’ve been seeing them all over the place for a while now, this was my first time making them.  I kind of wondered how good they could actually be, and I have to say that they were all [...]

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

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. This recipe was so easy [...]

Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Mini Peanut Butter Cups

I have fond Easter memories of pastel “grass”-packed baskets brimming with yummy sweet treats, hours of playing with my cousins (some of the time spent swapping said treats), and a huge meal with the whole family to cap the day off.  Since Ryan and I don’t have any family here in LA, Easter isn’t what [...]

Smokey Steak Sandwich with Garlic Spiced Potato Chips

Smokey Steak Sandwich with Garlic Spiced Potato Chips

For today’s Meatless Monday post I wanted to once again show you guys that just because you go meatless doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the flavors and textures of the foods that you love.  You can very easily swap them out for much-better-for-you-and-just-as-tasty vegan versions! This Smokey Steak Sandwich is a perfect example, and [...]

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 [...]

Italian Hot Chocolate

Italian Hot Chocolate

When I lived in London my friends and I found a little Italian cafe in Soho that served the most amazing hot chocolate.  It was really rich and thick – almost like a chocolate pudding before it sets up all the way.  I think about that hot chocolate all the time, so you can imagine [...]

Adult Shamrock Shake

Adult Shamrock Shake

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a McDonald’s shamrock shake (or McDonald’s for that matter…), so I should write a disclaimer that this shake won’t taste exactly like the fast food version – it’s better!  Adding some booze makes it an “adult” shake, and a perfect treat for the holiday. This shake [...]

Vegan Irish Cream

Vegan Irish Cream

It’s probably not surprising to hear that I loved Bailey’s Irish Cream in my non-vegan days.  I’ve seen recipes for vegan Bailey’s online now and then, and with St. Patrick’s day almost here I finally had the perfect excuse to whip some up.  Once I did I was kind of kicking myself, because it was [...]

Here it is guys, the final cupcake I would have made had I advanced to Round 2 of Cupcake Wars – a Grasshopper Cupcake!  This one is a light cocoa mint cake topped with Creme de Menthe frosting, Creme de Cacao whip and a maraschino cherry on top. When Michelle and I were waiting to [...]

Cupcake Wars – Jelly Donut and Coffee Cupcake

Cupcake Wars – Jelly Donut and Coffee Cupcake

Moving right along through the cupcakes I didn’t get a chance to show you on Cupcake Wars, here’s the next Round 2 flavor I would have made – a Jelly Donut and Coffee Cupcake.  I revamped my Sugar Donut Muffin into a cupcake, filled it with an organic mixed berry conserve, and topped it off [...]
