One Bowl Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

vegandoublechocolatechunkcookies-5877

When a girlfriend spoils you with your favourite chocolate bars, you make double chocolate cookies. It’s just what you do. No questions asked. The other day I realized that I don’t have many nut-free cookie recipes on the blog. Sure, my most popular Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies are nut-free, but there really isn’t much else […]

Easy Vegan and Gluten-Free Pancakes (Strawberry Shortcake w/ Whipped Cream)

veganglutenfreepancakes-5612

My heart is heavy this morning. Our little Sketchie cat is going through a surgery right now. It broke my heart saying good-bye this morning. He has no idea what he’s in for, what he will wake up to, and have to recover from. I haven’t written much about Sketchie’s bowel problems (most likely because […]

Smoky & Spicy Nut, Sesame, and Coconut ‘Bacon’ Bar Nuts

smokybarnuts-5388

I really can’t say that I intended to get this recipe up before Valentine’s Day because I didn’t think of it until the 15th. Heck, it would’ve made a great Superbowl appetizer too! Oh well, better late than never. Olympics appetizer, anyone? You may not know this, but Eric was a squirrel in his former […]

My Favourite Vegan Chili with Homemade Sour Cream

veganchili-5272

I grew up helping my dad make his “famous” chili for special occasions like Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. If there was a holiday party going down you can be sure his chili was the main event (often paired with his “famous” Caesar salad and garlic bread – his 3 staple recipes that we […]

Cauli-power Fettuccine “Alfredo” (Vegan)

caulifloweralfredo-4983

Eric is in love with this creamy cauliflower pasta dish. I mean, in love. In fact, he asked if we could make it together on Valentine’s Day. Who am I to deny a grown man cauliflower? Plus, creamy pasta and Valentine’s Day go hand and hand. Chocolate too, of course. I’d say it’s a win-win. […]

Luxurious Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa

I used to be really big on goal setting at the start of the year, but I haven’t really felt the urge this year. Maybe I will write some goals once I can sink my teeth into the year a bit more. Right now, I’m still wrapping my mind around everything that happened in 2013. […]

Chewy Molasses Spelt Cookies with Candied Ginger

veganmolassescookies-4410

I wouldn’t consider this a revolutionary concept in the slightest, but a simple tweak to my daily routine has changed everything. “Make a list.” That’s the advice Eric gave me several weeks ago when I was fizzling out. <—my term for juggling too many things at once with no clear direction on how to get […]

Turtle Oatmeal Cookies with Pecans, Chocolate, and Medjool Dates

veganturtlecookie-4125

Let’s keep this holiday goodie train chuggin’ along, with a new cookie recipe that I made recently for a holiday get together. It’s inspired by the Turtles candy, with a nutty, “buttery” base of toasted pecans, caramel-like Medjool dates, and mini dark chocolate chips. They did not last long. I bet you’ve never had an […]

Peanut Better Balls

veganpeanutbutterballs-4311-2

I have fond memories of making peanut butter balls with my mom and sister every holiday season. The women in my family are all big peanut butter and chocolate fans, so it seems like a natural holiday dessert to splurge on. In fact, I know when they see this post they’ll be running to the […]

Pumpkin Gingerbread Snack Bars

gingerbreadpumpkinbars-4023

Normally, we have our Christmas tree up by December 1st, but this year we totally dropped the bulb. It really doesn’t surprise me because I’ve been about 2 months behind throughout the course of 2013. The holidays only serve to enhance this feeling. I’ve still been so busy with book work, despite prematurely thinking that […]
