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 [...]

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 [...]

earth balance snacks

As a fan of Earth Balance products, I was really excited when they contacted me with information about their new line of vegan snack foods.  I tried all of them but the Vegan Buttery Flavored Popcorn.  Here’s what I thought… These P.B. Popps were my favorite of the bunch.  I just wish they came in [...]

St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

Thanks to a brilliant idea from Ryan, I turned our Irish Steak and Stout Stew into Shepherd’s Pie last night.  I was going to top the stew with pastry crust and make Colcannon to serve on the side.  After making the stew and mashing the potatoes Ryan asked if it would be crazy to just [...]

Derby Pie

Derby Pie

In honor of Pi Day, I present Wolfie’s Derby Pie from La Dolce Vegan.  I’ve been wanting to make this pie for years, and I finally got around to it.  This is the second pie I’ve ever baked with a real crust – as opposed to a graham cracker crust or a Crostata. After making a [...]

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 [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

This recipe from Betty Goes Vegan was easy and SO delicious.  I loved the bright lemon flavor, and I don’t think I would have thought to use lemon juice in a mock chicken salad.  It’s so good!  I used to not be a fan of celery in pretty much anything, but it was great in [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 2 – Artichoke Newburg

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 2 – Artichoke Newburg

I’m back with another recipe from Betty Goes Vegan.  Since I made something sweet last time, I decided to go the savory route this time. I should start by saying that I’ve never had Lobster Newburg, the dish that this one is based on.  Because of that, I can’t really speak to how similar this [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 1 – Butterscotch Brownie

I was recently sent a copy of Betty Goes Vegan by Annie Dan & Shannon of the awesome blog, “Meet the Shannons.”  I’m a huge fan of the blog, so I was very excited to get this book!  If you’re not familiar with the Shannons, they’ve been veganizing Betty Crocker recipes – Annie explains it [...]

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

I tested another recipe over the weekend for our Oscar party, but this one would also be perfect for the Superbowl this Sunday.  I wanted to do something different than my normal Hot Artichoke Dip, and using chicken worked for one the of the title puns I’ve been working on.  I came across this recipe [...]

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 [...]

Simple Crusty Bread

Simple Crusty Bread

I’ve been meaning to post about this bread for a long time, but I hadn’t actually made it in over a year.  Back when I was still doing Moveable Feast dinners with Alix (of the fantastic Cute + Delicious blog), she sent this recipe to me for our Spanish feast. I came back to this [...]

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Hi, guys!  I’m slowly coming out from under the craziness that is having a newborn baby to care for, and I actually have a minute to write up a post.  I hope to have more time before another two months (or more… ahem) goes by. Let me start by saying that if you have any [...]
