baked spicy korean “fried chicken”

Somehow I fell down a ‘mukbang‘ rabbit hole on Instagram the other night. (If you’re not familiar, it’s a social media thing where people eat vast quantities of food in front of a camera and share it to YouTube, TikTok and Instagram.) Sometimes it has an ASMR component to it, and sometimes it’s just for …

Vegan Ranch Seasoning and Dip

Have you tried my ultimate ranch seasoning yet? It takes just minutes to make and lasts forever.⁣⁣ I make a huge jar of it and use it for everything – ranch dips and dressings, as a seasoning for roasted potatoes, and as a popcorn shaker or coating for roasted cashews.⁣⁣It’s delish and made from just 6 …

Vegan Radish Tzatziki

I had an abundance of red radishes recently and, after roasting a few and pickling a bunch, I needed a creative way to use up the rest of them.⁣⁣Cool, creamy, tangy tzatziki is one of my favorite dips, and I’ve got a wicked dairy-free version in my first cookbook that has fooled many non-vegans into …

Mini Pizza Bites

Passover Seder Starters: Gefilte “Fish”

It’s officially spring, at least according to the calendar. Looking out my front window at more snow, I’m not so sure. I’m hopeful this is Mother Nature’s one last gasp at winter, and that warmer weather will be upon us soon! The start of spring also means holiday prep. It’s the season of egg-shaped chocolates …

This is THE spinach dip you need in your life.  Game day, girls night, holidays, Tuesdays…any reason is good enough to make this dip. It is the most spectacular dip.  Creamy and crunchy, salty, savory, and yet slightly sweet. It hits all the notes. But don’t just take my word for it, I shared it …

Vegan Jamaican “Beef” Patties

I’m going to start this post by saying no – I’m not producing these again.  It was fun while it lasted, but I no longer produce food in mass quantities for sale. That being said, a good friend of mine is slowly testing out plant-based food options and asked me if there way any way …
