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 [...]

Pumpkin Crumb Cake with Pecan Streusel

Pumpkin Crumb Cake with Pecan Streusel

I wanted to make a coffee cake for our Bears brunch a couple weekends ago, and after scouring my cookbooks for a suitable recipe (easy to make, feeds a small crowd, tasty), this one from my beloved Veganomicon seemed perfect.  I’d never made this before, but it sounded so good that I had to give [...]

Coconut Bundt Cake

Coconut Bundt Cake

Sometimes you just need some cake, and this guy arose from that need the other night.  I had an almost full can of coconut milk left-over in the fridge, and for some reason I was itching to bake something new (as if I don’t do enough baking already!).  “New” is the key word here, because [...]

Baja-Style Grilled Tempeh Tacos

Baja-Style Grilled Tempeh Tacos

We had these for dinner a while ago, and they were so good that I made Ryan take a picture of them.  I never really had fish tacos until moving to California.  For a while, we weren’t eating dairy, but were still eating fish.  Often when we ate out, a fish taco was the only [...]

Corn & Edamame Sesame Salad

Now for the best part of going to The Hollywood Bowl – the food!  It’s been a while since we’ve entertained or since I’ve cooked real food, so I was excited to try some new recipes.  I looked through Veganomicon because I hadn’t done that in a while, and tried to find some things that [...]

Tomato-Zucchini Fritters with Cashew-Cucumber Dip

Tomato-Zucchini Fritters with Cashew-Cucumber Dip

This was the final savory dish for our Hollywood Bowl picnic.  Both recipes are from Veganomicon, and the technical (but too long for a blog post title) names of both are Greek-Style Tomato-Zucchini Fritters with Fresh Herbs and Mediterranean-Style Cashew-Cucumber Dip.  That’s a mouthful!  No pun intended… These fritters were a huge hit.  I chose [...]

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 [...]

Rosemary Focaccia

Rosemary Focaccia

This is the Rosemary Focaccia from “Veganomicon”, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.  While this recipe does take some time since you have to let the dough rise twice, it was actually really easy to make.  I used to use a Jamie Oliver focaccia recipe that I’d printed off the internet years ago, [...]
