Nutcracker Cookies

IMG_5805

Some of you might remember that my Grandpa was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma right around this time last year. He had a rocky start to 2011, but his strength carried him through some very tough times and he enjoyed a happy and stable summer and fall season. He has unfortunately encountered another set back with […]

Broccoli & Cheeze Soup

IMG_5660

I have scary memories of all of those “Cream of” canned soups. Anyone? For some reason my dad used to love those canned soups. Depending on the day it could’ve been Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Broccoli, or Cream of Chicken. He’s probably eating one right now, actually.  I’d watch in fear as he cranked […]

Easy Holiday Gift: Vegan Chocolate Macaroon Truffles

IMG_5706

You couldn’t twist my arm enough to make me eat one of these creamy chocolate truffles right now. I know what you’re thinking…Who are you and what have you done with Ange? Well, the reason for my truffle aversion right now is a little something called a hangover…of the red wine kind. Here I was […]

Sinless Sticky Toffee Pecan Pudding

IMG_5593

Somehow I went from eating raw cabbage to baking one of the richest desserts known to man. That’s just how the cookie crumbles sometimes, isn’t it? However, I should get bonus points for making this classic dessert vegan and almost half the sugar and fat, don’t you think? Have you ever tried a sticky toffee […]

Vegan Eggnog Crunch Biscotti + Giveaway!!!

IMG_5402

I think there’s a rumor going around that biscotti is difficult to make. At least, that’s what I used to think. I suspect I’m not alone! The other week I was at the grocery store telling this sweet elderly cashier about my biscotti making adventures. With a worried look she replied, “Ohhhh….biscotti…power to you…” as […]

Last Minute Protein Energy Bars & Creamy Holly Nog Smoothie

IMG_4728

It’s the day after the American Thanksgiving and I’m sure the last thing anyone wants is an energy bar. However, it’s also Black Friday in the US and I figured maybe you could use some energy after all! There is very little that could pull me out of bed at midnight to enter long, cold […]

Vegan Holiday Dinner Ideas + A New Recipe

IMG_4410

One of my frequently asked questions around this time of the year is always, “What vegan recipes can I make for my upcoming holiday meals that will impress the skeptics?” Eating vegetarian, vegan, or other special diet can be challenging, especially around the holidays. It doesn’t help matters when “Uncle Joe” is ranting and raving […]

Mushroom Millet Soup with Cheezy Garlic Bread

IMG_4015

Imagine this scene: Last night, Eric and I got dressed up (me as the Queen of Hearts, him as the Scream character) and we stuffed 40 treat bags for the trick or treaters. They were bursting with candy and small toys like leap frogs and mini games. Last year we got around 20 kids, so […]

Pumpkin Maple Baked Bean Cornbread Casserole

IMG_2692

I always say the best recipes follow the worst disasters. And that’s just what happened yesterday. Because if one more thing went wrong, I was debating putting up a ‘Closed, please come again’ sign on the blog all Thanksgiving weekend. The first step was admitting that I’m all baked out at the moment, which probably […]

Red Lentil and Squash Curry Stew

IMG_2628

Leftovers are the best. A “free”, delicious meal without the work? I’ll take it. Unless of course you don’t know what to do with the leftovers and they die a slow death in the fridge. One day you walk into the kitchen gasping, “What IS that smell!?” only to open the fridge and find those […]
