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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Strawberries & Mango Butter

Strawberries & Mango Butter

A friend of mine recently told me about Trader Joe’s Mango Butter.  (She also told me about the dried green mango they carry, which I’m totally addicted to.  I think she’s trying to make me fat.)  A couple days after seeing her, they were sampling the mango butter in the store with strawberries.  And, just [...]

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake

I know the temperatures have dropped for most of us, but even when it’s cold out I still can’t resist a good shake.  When I was little my mom would sometimes make me killer chocolate shakes, and they were one of my favorites things in the whole world. Of course, you can make a non-dairy [...]

“Speed Scratch” Vegan Neapolitan with Fork-Smashed Strawberries

“Speed Scratch” Vegan Neapolitan with Fork-Smashed Strawberries

Remember how I mentioned in my last post that I feel like eating healthy salads balances out the ice cream that I eat right afterwards?  Behold  some epic ice cream. Now I do have to admit that this followed up a rather large and not-entirely-salad-filled meal.  We had friends over for dinner, and I wanted to [...]

Strawberry Shortcake with Ginger Scones and Whipped Coconut Cream

Strawberry Shortcake with Ginger Scones and Whipped Coconut Cream

As I kid I had a huge sweet tooth.  (Who am I kidding?  I still do…)  But back then I could have happily lived on sweets, although I imagine a lot of kids feel that way.  For some reason, though, I was never a huge fan of strawberry shortcake.  I think it was partly because [...]

Yesterday at Worldfest, I was able to hear Tal Ronnen speak about the work he’s been doing both with restaurants and with Le Cordon Bleu, and afterwards, I was able to meet him at get my book signed.  Being a former meat eater, and someone who loved meat so much I never saw myself ever giving [...]

Wheat-Free Strawberry Tart with Lemon Roasted Pistachios

Wheat-Free Strawberry Tart with Lemon Roasted Pistachios

Okay, I know there must be people out there who don’t like strawberries, but I’ve never met them.  It seems like this fruit is universally loved (cue the emails and comments of people telling me about strawberry allergies).  I loved strawberries so much as a kid because we only got to really enjoy them during [...]

Strawberry Loaf with White Chocolate Chips

Strawberry Loaf with White Chocolate Chips

I love strawberries, but no matter how many I eat, I always seem to have a bunch left-over in the fridge.  I usually end up dealing with them once half of them are past saving, and I cut the rest up and throw them in the freezer for smoothies.  I know that next time I [...]

Things have been a bit busy as of late with prepping for the Animal Acres Gala, baking for the Hollywood Farmers’ Market, and shipping orders from the online store.  With so much time being spent in the kitchen, it’s been a while since I’ve really cooked an elaborate meal.  One of our favorite things to [...]
