Homemade Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce (or Dip)

Doesn't look like much, but it's a fulfilling dinner.

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 […]

I feel like Stew Pickles... an inventor and well-wisher.

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. Last Saturday night, my sisters and I had a girl’s night in. To counteract the exorbitant amounts of (dairy-free) ice cream, brownies, and […]

Delicate, satisfyingly orange chocolate cupcakes

Have you ever had one of those chocolate oranges? You know, those absolutely divine chocolates shaped like oranges? Everyone secretly wishes for one in her Christmas stocking. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, get educated!  (But don’t buy any, because I’m not sure if they’re dairy-free or not.) Anyway, I’ve been planning […]

Pear Crisp

Crispy, juicy pear goodness on a plate.

I’m a slacker and a plebe. My mother was a hamster and my father smelt of elderberries. I have an outrageous French accent that I only use around kings riding invisible horses. Last week, I tried to use up the last of my pears. It didn’t work, but I got through another 14 of them […]

Dinner is served.

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

Fresh from the "farm" 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 […]

Cold Swordfish Sandwich

Best lunch ever!

I love leftovers, especially things that can be made into sandwiches. The day after my swordfish dinner, I gleefully massacred my leftover swordfish and made a sandwich to rival Micky D’s fish sandwich. That’s a little unfair. Maybe I like cold fish more than your average bear, but this particular sandwich is delightfully simple and […]
