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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Cupcake Wars – Round 1

Cupcake Wars – Round 1

Finally, my Cupcake Wars episode has aired and I don’t have to keep any more secrets!  Well, I guess there’s actually a lot I can’t say about the actual production of the show due to the many, many confidentiality forms I had to sign, but you know what I mean… I can tell you guys [...]

Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Keeping with my theme of featuring foods with aphrodisiac qualities, this bread pudding packs in three of them – banana, chocolate and nutmeg.  The rum sauce doesn’t hurt either.  I don’t know that alcohol is technically considered an aphrodisiac, but it seems to do the job! This recipe is from the book Veganomicon, and since [...]

Chocolate Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

I told you I’ve been on a comfort food kick, and here’s even more proof!  Between the coffee cake, cocoa and a few other test recipes I’ve been playing around with, I definitely need to up my workouts if I want to keep fitting into my clothes!  I don’t know what I’m thinking having these [...]

Vanilla Yogurt with Oranges & Pistachios

Vanilla Yogurt with Oranges & Pistachios

I came up with this dessert (along with the Chocolate Cherry Loaf) for the recent feature that Whole Soy was kind enough to write about me.  If you’ve never tried soy yogurt, you’re missing out!  It’s really tasty, and it can easily be substituted for regular yogurt in any recipe. I wanted at least one [...]

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 [...]

Persimmon Pudding with Whipped Coconut Cream

Persimmon Pudding with Whipped Coconut Cream

I have to start this post off by honestly telling you that I’ve never really liked persimmons.  My grandma loved them, so they remind me of her, which makes me really want to love them.  But no matter how many times I try samples of them at the farmers’ market, I just never come around [...]

I was having a hard time deciding what to make for dessert this Thanksgiving.  I wanted to make something different, but still appropriate for the holiday.  There must have been some divine intervention on Wednesday, because I found myself suddenly thinking about a pumpkin trifle, and the rest was history! I used the recipe for [...]

Easy Refrigerator Pumpkin Cheesecake

Easy Refrigerator Pumpkin Cheesecake

I found this recipe online a while back, and I was dying to try it after seeing the amazing photo.  Anything that looks that good and has the word “easy” right in the title has my name written all over it!  While the original recipe wasn’t vegan, I could tell it would be easy enough [...]
