Just Fine and Dandies Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Just Fine and Dandies Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Actually, these aren’t “just fine”, they’re awesome, but I was trying to be clever with the title there… I don’t remember rice crispy treats being my childhood favorite; I think I was more of a cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie kind of kid. But I’m definitely a crispy treat convert. When I first moved from…

Vegan Cake Truffles

Vegan Cake Truffles

Do you ever accidentally fall asleep in the evening and then wake up wondering if you should go about the tasks you had planned to accomplish or just call it a day and go to bed? I just did that. I even chose “just crawl in bed and worry about it tomorrow,” but then the…

Broccoli Slaw And Perfect Vegan Cheesecake

This morning, while my little man ate his oatmeal with organic blueberries and green juice, I decided I just had to organize my pantry right then and there. There I am, it’s 5:30am, in my yoga pants and tee shirt pulling out flours, oils, and ingredients galore, left and right, running out of places to…

“They’ll Think It’s Homemade” Vegan Chocolate Cake

Do you ever get home late on a holiday, a primarily dessert-centered holiday, and realize it’s too late to bake anything? I guess these things happen on, say, a Thursday too… But anyway, last night I found a solution! Needing a Valentine’s Day dessert in a hurry, I pulled out an Amy’s Chocolate Cake I…

Baked Vegan Doughnuts With Lemon Glaze

Happy February!  I picked up Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Diet today.  I’ve actually grabbed it twice before, both times putting it back, but something keeps drawing me to this book so maybe it’s a sign!  Whatever it is, I’m excited to open it up and get started. I’ve already been wondering if a juicer and…

Vegan Fudge

My grandma makes delicious homemade fudge.  She would always put nuts in it, so when I was a kid, I would try my darnedest to eat the chocolate around the nuts without accidentally tasting one.  Because I’m special, of course, Grandma started making me a nut-free batch every year, once she realized what I was…

The Joy Of Vegan Lemon Bars

The holidays are the perfect time to bring out The Joy of Vegan Baking! It’s filled with treat recipes all of your friends and family, vegan or not, will love.  These lemon bars (page 126)  tend to get people especially nostalgic, myself included.  We had a huge assortment of cookies and bars on the Christmas…

Great Good Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

November 19, 2010

It’s Friday!  Let’s celebrate with a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe!  Flipping through the pages of More Great Good Dairy-Free Desserts Naturally, I came to the chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I think every dessert cookbook is pretty much required to have a chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I always shun them, continuing to make the…

Great Good Vegan New Orleans Bread Pudding

November 16, 2010

I know it’s Tuesday, but it really feels like Monday #2 over here.  I’m sure learning to go to bed earlier would make my mornings more pleasant, but for now I’ll just have to perk up with a cup of coffee and a nice bowl of warm bread pudding.  Mmm.. bread pudding… the breakfast of…

Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Nothing says holidays like a bag of candy canes and a hammer, does it?  Sure, peppermint pieces can be found, but I can’t think of any reason to go looking for them when I have a perfectly good excuse to use a hammer to break things!  When I was younger, we stalked the ice cream…
