Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Chocolate and vanilla are classics for a reason, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t think outside of the box a bit when it comes to cupcakes. And I’m not refering to boxed cake mixes here. I’m talking about using more unusualy flavors, like Cupcake Bakeshop does, to really let cupcakes shine, not just act as pacifiers when we’re in the mood for a little ... Read More »

Vegetarian Stuffing

Whether you call it stuffing or dressing, this dish and its many variations are a classic holiday dinner side dish. Personally, I always called it stuffing, regardless of the fact that it may or may not have actually be stuffed in a bird. I don’t really care for the mushy texture of the in-bird stuffings, so I tend to opt for the “on the side” ... Read More »

Apple Spice Vegan Wafffles

I know that I’ve mentioned before how I don’t like breakfast to be a fattening affair. Once in a while? Sure, but because I really enjoy breakfast foods and want to have them more than once in a blue moon, I like to work out ways to have my cake – waffles, in this case – and eat it, too. These waffles are based on ... Read More »

Making a “Magic Loaf”: Vegan Meatloaf

I really like Jennifer’s site Vegan Lunch Box, which hopefully you have all seen before via the link in my sidebar. Jennifer blogs what she packs for her son’s lunch everyday, dealing with the changing and occasionally idiosyncratic tastes of kids as well as the fact that they’re vegan and the other kids at school aren’t. To make sure her little “schmoo” isn’t left out, ... Read More »

Vegan Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

This month’s food meme mashup of IMBB27 and SHF20 is hosted by Reid, of the inimitable Ono Kine Grindz, everyone’s favorite Hawaiian food blog. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to clarify. Every month, many food bloggers participate in the food blogging events Is My Blog Burning? (IMBB) and Sugar High Friday (SHF), which usually occur independently, but happen to both ... Read More »

White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Nuts can make a fantastic addition to cookies, cakes and other baked goods. Whether you use pecans, walnuts or almonds, they all add great flavors and a nice crunch to any recipe. Another nut that I am fond of is the macadamia nut, which has an unusually smooth and buttery flavor. I particularly enjoy it when it is paired with white chocolate, as the chocolate ... Read More »

Silken Raspberry Mousse

A lot of tofu mousses involve chocolate. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but they can be rather heavy and, frankly, I like fruity things during the spring and summer far more than I like chocolaty things. I haven’t done many mousses with fruit and tofu, but, in this case, decided to give it a shot. And I’m glad that I did. While ... Read More »

Spicy Carribean Ginger Stew

One of my favorite restaurant dishes is served at the Delta of Venus in Davis, California. Davis is a small university town outside Sacramento. The area is agriculture-heavy and, combined with the naturally liberal atmosphere of college towns, there are a lot of good food options there. Delta of Venus is a restaurant/café just a few blocks away from campus. The best descriptor of the ... Read More »
