Breakfast Cookie Week!

October 31, 2011

Hey everyone, This week, I’m going to post a slightly different vegan breakfast cookie recipe every day. This morning, I made 7 different… things. I meant to make scones or rock cakes, but they didn’t turn out so scone like. After Julia and I tasted them, they seemed more like hearty breakfast cookies. That’s a […]

Homemade Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce (or Dip)

October 30, 2011

Do you ever feel like you have just glimpsed inside the mind of a famous chef? I certainly did after creating this dairy-free Alfredo masterpiece. Did I mention that my entire family thought it was made with cheese? Yeah, they were all surprised it was vegan. One of the perks of being completely dairy-free is accidentally making […]

Like a boss. This recipe was a hella success. Yeah, that’s right. On the fly, I made up this recipe and it rocked the socks off my entire family. I feel like a rockstar.

When I get home from work, I’m pretty darn hungry. I don’t like waiting forever and a day while my stomach curls in on itself with writhing hunger. Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I get hungry, okay? (Then, of course, I end up eating a couple cookies or dessert first, while waiting […]

Pear Sauce

My parents have a pear tree that has been shedding pears unmercifully. Last spring, before everything started to bloom, my dad and I pruned many new shoots and some old branches from our beautiful pear tree. The goal was to help it produce fewer, bigger, jucier pears. It had another plan. The remaining branches doubled […]
