IMG_7737-2

My gluten-free and vegan baking adventures continue! [See post 1 here] This time, I’m using a gluten-free flour called Teff Flour. Have you heard of Teff flour before? [Source] I hadn’t until I looked through the Clean Start and Clean Food Cookbooks. Teff flour is not only gluten-free, but it’s high in protein, iron, calcium, […]

IMG_0406

Before we get to these fudgy cookie dough cups, let’s talk about the June salad challenge for a sec. I never thought I would get such a positive response about a salad challenge of all things, but your response blew me away. I’ve already seen many of you blogging and tweeting about it, creating #saladaday […]

Our Perfect Veggie Burger

IMG_8700

For the past several months, I’ve been on a quest to make a veggie burger that had everything on our wish list. I’ve probably made over 100 veggie burgers and they all came up short, either by just a tiny bit or by a landslide. I’m always asked what I do with failed recipes and […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch ‘Blizzard’

IMG_8552

Last night, I made a new veggie burger recipe. Don’t get too excited though, they were crap. I’m super picky when it comes to veggie burgers and I rarely meet one that I’m happy with. Eric goes, ‘They’d be good without all the lemon…’ ‘They are rosemary lemon burgers.’ ‘Oh…hah’ Fail. I also won’t tell […]

Springtime Strawberry Lime Mango Crisp (Vegan + GF)

strawberrymangocrisp-7332

Dear Mom, If we lived close by, I would make you this strawberry mango crisp for Mother’s Day brunch. It’s pretty, bubbly, and sweet, with many different layers. Just like you. There’s a nutty layer too – wink, wink. (Two teenage girls in the house can do that to a person!) When I think back […]

Summer Fever Strawberry Lime Granita…just 4-ingredients!

IMG_0494

Eric thinks I’m getting senile. I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes?"  he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as […]

We’re having about 25-30 people over so it should be a great time! This makes the first of two birthday potlucks this weekend. We have another with […]

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Almond ‘Buttercream’ and Raspberry Glaze

IMG_2283

It’s my party and I’ll cry eat delicious cupcakes if I want to! Ok, it’s not technically my party, but it is my girlfriend’s birthday tomorrow and we’re have a girl’s get together for lunch. I was ever so politely asked (note: begged) to bring a dessert along and I have had cupcakes on my […]

Vegan Lasagna with Basil Cashew Cheeze

IMG_4185

Are you feeling as well rested as I am today? I could seriously bounce off the walls right now and there isn’t a lick of caffeine in my body. Man, the extra hour is the best…aside from that whole getting dark earlier thing. That really put a wrinkle in my lasagna dinner photography plans last […]
