Creamy Cajun Sausage and Mushroom Penne

As an Amazon associate, I earn a small commission from qualifying purchases for items linked on this site. Something really rare happened, y’all. BOTH my kids tried a new dish I made and agreed it was delicious enough to make it into our permanent dinner rotation. Twelve is pretty good about trying new dishes these …

Smoky bbq brisket with onion jam

Weekends are for slow cooking. Especially rainy weekends like we’re having today. Since Mother Nature isn’t interested in outdoor BBQs right now, I’m bringing the outside indoors with this vegan take on a Smoky BBQ Brisket. Smoky BBQ sauce, brown sugar, spices and caramelized onions give this seitan-based roast a nice crisp bark on top …

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 …

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 …
