Double Chocolate & Peanut Butter Streusel muffins

Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit by calling these “muffins”. The crumb is so light and soft and chocolatey, that it’s really hard to tell it apart from a chocolate cupcake. But in the absence of frosting (and the appearance of streusel, which is definitely a “muffin thing”), we’ll go ahead and call these muffins. …

Busy Day Lemon Cake

I’m a history buff and I have a love for all things vintage – especially when it comes to the kitchen. I’ve been collecting vintage cookbooks and retro kitchenware for years, so it’s no surprise that when I decided to write a dessert cookbook, I packed it full of modernized, plant-based versions of classic retro …

Loaded Baked Potato Soup with Kale

We woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning – not enough to really stick (it’s all gone now), but enough to remind me that winter is on its way.⁣⁠⁣⁠Of course, as I’m typing this, I’m seeing the weather forecast will hit 60F again by Friday, but it’s just for a day or …

Mini Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s been quite a week trying to get started with online school.⁣⁣Our school district had a huge spike in students switching from in-person to online classes, and not enough teachers to cover them, so we’ve been in a holding pattern with one child and a delayed start with the other one.⁣⁣So we took this opportunity …

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 …

Frosted Animal Crackers

These are a total trip-down-memory-lane kind of treat. Who didn’t love getting a box of animal crackers as a kid and biting the heads off of lions and tigers and bears? Guaranteed fun…until the box was empty of course. I love recreating childhood favorites and introducing them to my kids. Having kids with dairy allergies …

Summer Corn and Onion Fritters

When people ask me where I learned to cook (or bake), I always say, “Ina taught me.”  (The Ina referring to Ina Garten – The Barefoot Contessa.) Now of course, this is only partially true; I’ve never really met Ina – although I was lucky enough to see her in person in A Conversation with …

Mini Pizza Bites

Food is always more fun when it’s bite-size, right? Teeny-tiny, cute versions of our fave foods always taste better and are so much fun to eat (plus, you can totally eat MORE of them without having to do an extra hour or three of cardio the next day!) Summer is fast approaching and that means …

Vegan Egg Salad

“So what food do you miss most from your non-vegan days?” I’ve been vegan for close to eight years now, and I legit still get asked this question on almost a weekly basis. And my answer is always, unwaveringly, the same: eggs. I always thought cheese was going to be the hardest thing for me …

Vegan Matzoh Balls

First off, let’s establish right away that I am – and always have been a “sinkers” girl. Chewy, dense, sink-to-the-bottom-of-the-bowl matzoh balls have always been my jam. I’m not even sure I know how to make a “floater” matzoh ball. (Okay, I probably do, but we won’t dwell on that.) They aren’t true matzoh balls …
