Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars – Review and Giveaway!

Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars – Review and Giveaway!

I’ve really been making an effort eat healthier the past few weeks, and I’ve specifically targeted sugar.  Of course I still love a sweet treat, I just want to eat healthier versions. So when I was recently contacted by Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars about doing a review and giveaway I was VERY excited.  And I’m [...]

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Right on the heels of Part 1 of my Oscar post comes Part 2!  Here’s the “Argochoke Dip: Go Cluck Yourself”, which I posted about a few weeks ago.  This was a big hit.  We had a couple vegetarians at the party, but no other vegans.  In case you’d be worried to serve this to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found the recipe for these cookies on Hannah Kaminsky’s BitterSweet Blog.  It caught my eye because I love chocolate chip cookies, and I’m a huge fan of malt flavor.  I was so excited to try them out! I made these for some friends who were coming over to hang out for the evening, and [...]

UPDATE: This past Saturday was the big day!  I wanted to share some pictures from my cooking class taken by the lovely Jackie of Alternative Outfitters.  I also have to thank Tera (of the beautiful elgin eco house blog) for being kind enough to open her amazing kitchen to us!  It’s an absolutely stunning space, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 – Midnight Chocolate Peanut Butter “Cup”-Cake

Cupcake Wars – Midnight Chocolate Peanut Butter “Cup”-Cake

I know what you’re thinking – Another Cupcake Wars cupcake?  How?  What?  Um… Kim, you didn’t make it to Round 2…  How could you have another cupcake from the show? Just because I got eliminated after the first round doesn’t mean I didn’t plan for Round 2!  And you can bet your sweet little cupcake [...]

C’est La Cake!

I’m so excited to announce that C’est La V Bakeshop is now offering cakes!  You may have already suspected that this announcement was coming since I’ve been writing about cakes recently here at C’est La Vegan.  I’ve definitely been having a lot of fun experimenting with different flavors and designs as of late. The cake [...]

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

This recipe comes from the book Simply Scones that I was telling you guys about on Monday.  The name of this one had me at hello, if you know what I mean.  I have to admit that I don’t think I would have ever thought to make a peanut butter scone, as much as I [...]

Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Chocolate Raspberry Cake

For a long time, I was really afraid of cakes, even when I made them at the bakery.  When I was probably 5 or 6 years old, I slipped carrying my Dad’s birthday cake.  I was so excited to bring his cake in to him, and dropping it upset me so much that it’s haunted [...]
