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 [...]

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 [...]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In honor of the holiday I wanted to post these heart-shaped linzer sandwich cookies that I made for the Animal Acres Valentine’s Bake Sale yesterday.  I’ve been wanting to test this recipe out for a while now, and the bake sale gave me the perfect excuse to try them out. These were really tasty – [...]

Chocolate-Cherry Slices

Chocolate-Cherry Slices

I had my eye on a recipe for Chocolate-Peppermint Slices (from this book that my Mom gave me many years ago), and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I might make a Chocolate-Cherry version for the holiday. It was my first time making this kind of cookie, and even thought it takes [...]

Lemon Bar Cookies

Lemon Bar Cookies

I love anything lemon.  I don’t know why, but I rarely make lemon desserts, even though I love them so much.  Lemon bars take the cake, and while I’ve made a few vegan lemon bars in my day that are really tasty, it’s hard for any of the them to come close to the bars [...]

Mega Chocolate Mint Holiday Cookies

Mega Chocolate Mint Holiday Cookies

I was recently contacted by Earth Balance to submit a recipe to their new “made just right” website (I mentioned their recipe contest in a recent post).  I wanted to do something that felt festive for the holiday season, and these Mega Chocolate Mint Cookies seemed to fit the bill. These cookies are super chocolaty, [...]

Pine Nut & Anise Cookies

Pine Nut & Anise Cookies

When I think of desserts for Valentine’s Day, what comes to mind more often that not are over-the-top-decadent chocolate concoctions.  And while I’m all for that (who isn’t?), I wanted to craft a unique meal that ends with something more unexpected.  And let’s face it, there ain’t gonna be no “romance” on Valentine’s night if [...]

C’est La V at 2 New Farmers’ Markets!

C’est La V is now available at two farmer’s markets!  We’ll be offering scones, biscotti, fudgy brownies, and cookies.  I’m planning to expand the line and will try to vary what we have at the markets each week.  A great bonus of starting these is that people who place orders can now pick them up [...]

Magic Cookie Bars

Magic Cookie Bars

This is a Magic Cookie bar recipe that I’m in the midst of testing to try to get it just right.  I used to know these as Seven Layer Bars and I loved them with butterscotch chips, but I can’t find any non-dairy ones around here.  To be honest, I don’t miss them that much [...]

Mini Pistachio & Anise Seed Biscotti

Mini Pistachio & Anise Seed Biscotti

I recently received an email from Paramount Farms with information about the pistachio recall – “We wanted to let you know that not all pistachios have been affected and that a new site, PistachioRecall.org, the result of a collaboration between the FDA and California growers/processors, is now available. The site lists specific safe pistachio products [...]

Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Chocolate Crackle Cookies

These cookies are awesome.  They’re almost like a little brownie bite covered in powdered sugar.  We made a non-vegan version of these at Leda’s, but never ended up doing a vegan version.  I thought it was time to remedy that and added them to my menu.  They’re based on this recipe from good old Martha [...]

Planned Parenthood Food Fare

Planned Parenthood Food Fare

Ryan and I just got back from the Planned Parenthood Food Fare where I gave out samples of snickerdoodles, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate almond and pistachio anise seed biscotti, and fudgy brownies.  I baked almost 1200 samples!  Needless to say we’re pretty exhausted, but it was a fun day, and we met some great people.  [...]
